Obama? Are you high? Anti-life, waging a gratuitous and stupid war on the Church in order to smash religious liberty? Votes himself the power to indefinitely detain and murder anybody he likes on his secret and royal word alone? Killed more civilians than any other Nobel Peace Prize winner? Only a fool would vote for him.
Romney: favors abortion for rape, incest and “the health of the mother”. In other words, favors abortion. Also favors gay “marriage” and adoption. Also, shilly shallys when ask invited by a warm and inviting Raymond Arroyo to just come out and say, “I will overturn the HHS mandate”. And, as a big big plus with the Rubber Hose Right, uses the promise of torture as a huge applause line. And he has surrounded himself with the neocons who got us into our last stupid war while ignoring the vets and classing them with Rands “Takers” when he lets his hair down among like-minded folk and makes clear that he is a proponent of the class war of rich vs poor, a program he has personally implemented by putting people out of work and getting richer off it. The very defenses offered of him by prolifers have consisted of stuff like “HA! Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked him for taking seriously the RNC anti-abortion plank in the platform! But Anderson Cooper showed that he doesn’t take that plank seriously at all! In your face, DWS!” Great. What’s not to reject?
Now if we were smart, we’d be writing, faxing, and phoning R/R every day with wheedles, threats, cajoles saying, “Get serious or you lose my vote in a very close election and if you so much as *think* about betraying me you have made an enemy and one who will work to defeat you and your party in the midterms.” Instead, what we get is enormous energy spent on constant shushing from other prolifers who fear that thought of this duplicitous man losing and who believe the myth”vote for Romney or you are really voting for Obama”. Utter rubbish. A vote for a third party candidate is a vote for that candidate, not for somebody else.
So, yeah: I accept the case for No.
The only question is, can I find somebody I can write in? I think I can. Somebody who advocates no grave intrinsic evil at all, rather than somebody who advocate 5% less than the other leading brand.
