Voting for a third party candidate at this time when one of only two candidates will win the election [McCain/Obama] , would be wasting your vote and endangering your political freedoms. My personal opinion is that voting for McCain will give those who are not happy with either Obama/McCain or the Republican/Democrat party leadership will give us time to regroup, unite, and try to increase our numbers. I see Obama as a very frightening and dangerous choice, and if elected would work to undermine the very core of our election process by silencing opposition! He must be stopped for no other reason than to save our election process, and here is why.


Obama/Ayers Update: Obama Campaign Unleashes “Turbas” on WGN Radio Host

Obama Campaign Tries to Shut Down Chicago Radio Show

Intimidation Tactics

SHUT UP, THEY EXPLAINED (AGAIN)

Heck, even Hillary supporters say that Obama’s brown shirt tactics used on WGN are “unreal“ and “bully-boy tactics“.

Government computers used to find information on Joe the Plumber


Well, that’s just a taste of Chicago’s corrupt political machine in action which will swarm into Washington if Obama is elected. SEE:
A presidential debate, the Chicago Way

But any child in Illinois knows the Chicago Way leads through the most politically corrupt city in America, in a politically corrupt state, where muscle trumps reason, where Democratic warlords brazenly promote their offspring into public office, where even souls are offered up for sale.

The national media have never wanted to understand, much less expose, political corruption here, or examine how Obama prospered under the Daley machine's guidance. A trip down the Chicago Way would force them to re-examine their ridiculous narrative that sets Obama as a political reformer riding a white horse, or is that a winged unicorn?
As I correctly stated in the past, it’s very scary that many who support Obama don’t understand the Chicago political machine and how it works if put into power. It immediately begins to use all available government resources to snuff out political opposition. ACORN is only a small example!

Your black helicopter logic and arguments do nothing to sway my third party voting choice.

Voting for either of these buffoons would make my conscience feel very dirty.

I don't get this – "vote for us so we remain in power while we get ourselves new voters to marginalize you"?

If I think someone can't do the job, I refuse to vote for them. My state is covered for McCain, he's way ahead in the polls, so I'm protesting against both candidates by voting my conscience.

Well, he often acts all nice to the American people, but I personally think he's out for world domination, and not in a nice way.

Actually, the reason people continue to vote for 3rd party candidates even if they don't have a chance to win is because, if the candidate gets enough votes, they'll qualify for Federal funding for campaigning during the next election year.

So, no, it's not a waste of a vote.

Do you understand how the Chicago political machine works, and will move into Washington if Obama gets elected?

The whole third party candidate is such a strange chicken and egg thing. Many people want a third party but won't get one without voting for them, and won't vote for them because we don't have much of a third party.

Is that chicken and egg? Maybe I'm using the wrong expression, but it definitely is self defeating.

It's not so much if I understand it - it's if I care. McCain isn't any better than Obama. They are cut from the same cloth and have the same puppetmasters controlling them.

I'm voting, as Shaddim is, with my conscience. I've never voted for the lesser of two evils and am not about to start.
