Borepatch links to Mark Levin. He quotes some highlights but you can listen to what Mark Levin has to say in the audio at the end of his post.
Then an anonymous comment and my reply. Because it’s my vote. Mine. I’m not unreliable. Reliability implies that I somehow owe the Republican Party my allegiance. I do not. If they want my vote, they can earn it. With a candidate that can do the simple things outlined by Mark Levin in his broadcast.
Otherwise, I will vote for the best conservative candidates in the House and Senate, as well as my State and local elections, and vote for a third party candidate for President. And if my vote, and the votes of other conservative libertarians can be thrown away, what sort of strategy is it to try to demand that I somehow owe my vote to whoever the party nominates?
From BorePatch’s comments
All that matters is ousting Obama from the White House in November. Everything else is secondary. Anyone who thinks otherwise is deluding himself.
The only “lesson” you give by staying home is that you are unreliable and marginal. Your choice.
Really, Anonymous, just getting Obama out of the White House fixes America? How, exactly?
And yes, it is my choice. If you offer me
— A. Obama
— B. Romney
I choose C. –None of the above.
That’s freedom. The Republicans can put someone else forward, or they can decide my vote and my support does not matter to them. Their choice.
