Wasting Your Vote on the Lesser of Two EvilsSubmitted by Long Hair on Wed, 09/05/2012 - 09:50
Is there really a choice in the 2012 Presidential Election? We have to choose between a socialist, Obama, and a socialist, Romney. When I was in school, it was taught that communism was evil (communism is just an extreme of socialism). Some would say we have to choose the lesser of two evils when we vote, but let’s think about that. In order to pick the less of something, you have to have something that is substantially “less”. Here are some of the issues: government controlled health care, gun control, abortion, gay marriage, bailouts, corruption, NDAA supporter, war, the Federal Reserve, to name a few. A very important question is, where do these “candidates” differ?
I want to address the premise that we have to “vote for the lesser of two evils” in the first place. The people of this country have somehow been hoodwinked on this concept. Every four years, we are somehow made to believe that we “must” vote for a horrible candidate because the other guy is even worse. Common sense tells us, voting for the “lesser” of two evils is still voting for evil! If that doesn’t start getting you to think, how about what God says in the Bible in 1 Thessalonians 5:22 – Abstain from all appearance of evil.
Both candidates not only support government health care, they both “wrote it”, hence, “Obamacare” or “Romneycare”. It is unbelievable that so many people have accepted socialized medicine. A whole generation was fooled with Medicare. In the end, do you really think the government is going to “take care of you”? Well, in a sense they are because Obamacare contains death panels. And don’t think for a moment that Romney would change that.
Obama wants to disarm the American people – we already know that (UN Small Arms Treaty). As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney signed an assault weapons ban. Under either one of these two “candidates”, your right to bear arms is in jeopardy.
On two “social” issues, abortion and gay marriage, Obama and Romney are no different. Regarding bailouts, Romney took a 10 million dollar bailout and “saved” Bain Capital because of it. And the media tries to get us to think that Romney is a great businessman. Is this truly how someone should run a business? We already know that Obama supports bailouts – just think GM. The National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA for short, substantially reduced our liberties. We already know that Obama signed it. During the Republican Party debate in South Carolina, Mitt Romney said that he would sign the NDAA. Both support the Patriot Act. Again, there is no difference between the “candidates”.
The Federal Reserve is a secretive, privately owned entity in partnership with the Federal Government. They print our money and charge us interest. They print this money out of thin air, without any backing (if we do that on our printers at home they call it counterfeiting). Also, they loan out money through the fraudulent Fractional Reserve Banking System. Both Romney and Obama fully support the Federal Reserve and believe that the president should not question the “independence” of the Federal Reserve. Both Romney and Obama oppose a full audit on the Federal Reserve. Maybe both want to protect their biggest financial backers, the bankers.
Remember the song from the 1960’s, Fortunate Son, by Creedence Clearwater Revival? Google the lyrics and read them and think about what they say. They will draft OUR sons and daughters - we are not millionaires or politicians, unlike Romney or Obama, who can pay or make deals for their children to escape being recruited into required military service. So OUR children will be conscripted to fight their foreign wars. That’s what it all comes down to – money and power. Their children will not be used as disposable pawns. Henry Kissinger, who is infamously known for referring to military men as “dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy”, has just been announced as a foreign policy advisor to Mitt Romney. Both Romney and Obama will attack Iran and they will use OUR children to do it. Think about why and remember the United States of America killed many Iraqi and Afghan people and many American soldiers died. Why? Did Iraq or Afghanistan attack our country?
Everyone knows (or should by now unless you are in a coma or something) how corrupt the Obama administration is. What about Romney? Did he honestly get the GOP nomination? How many people do you know genuinely support him? There are numerous incidences of fraud, cheating, and corruption during the primaries and caucuses across this nation. Don’t take my word for it, Google it! Even at the Republican National Convention the rules were changed before the vote was even cast. Part of the rules change was how many states a candidate needs to carry, increasing the number of states from five to eight, even though one of the candidates besides Romney already had the five required states before the vote. (How convenient for the Republican Establishment and the Romney campaign to eliminate any other candidate from being nominated by changing the “rules” of the election at the Convention.) During the vote, the teleprompter displays the words or “script” of what the chairman reads. The outrageous thing was that the teleprompter had the results for a rules change vote before the vote was cast! And further, the chairman called the vote in favor of the rules change even though the voice vote did not corroborate what was actually voiced. What amazing blatant dishonesty and corruption proving that the Convention is just ceremonial and the will of the American people is rendered irrelevant. In addition, Google what happened to Maine’s delegates at the Convention. What it all boils down to is that the Republican Party Establishment picked Romney for us time and time again with the help of a controlled and complacent media. And somehow we are to believe that a Romney administration will be more honest than Obama’s! It’s just “politics” as usual, isn’t it? There is no “change” we can believe in! Are you mad yet? You ought to be!
And can you really trust a single word that comes out of Romney’s mouth? He would probably win the award for the biggest flip-flopper that there is if there were such a contest. He even flip-flops his stance on an issue in the same day. He is worse than a typical politician. He is a LIAR! He doesn’t stand for anything. And of course Obama’s record speaks for itself. Did he even keep one of his campaign promises?
So, hopefully I have demonstrated that there is no difference in the “candidates” who were chosen for us by the “bosses” of the two party system. These two “candidates” are both socialists who are enemies of freedom. Mitt Romney is just a carbon copy of Barack Obama which means there is no “choice” in this election! I propose the American people vote their conscience and protest this madness and write in a candidate to prove to the powers that be that they will insult our intelligence no longer. For the most part, we don’t have an election system anymore, at least not on the Federal level. So why continue to play the game? If someone wanted to play Monopoly with you and you knew that they wanted to be the bank and cheat while doing it, would you agree to or even want to play? What would be the point? Therefore, what is the point in voting for either major political party’s “candidate”? This “game” is no different. And don’t tell me if we write in a candidate then we “wasted our vote”. The Establishment of the Republican Party gave us a weak candidate on purpose. Why? Get away from your TV long enough to ponder that one. The only “wasted” vote is one that goes against our conscience, common sense, and what is right. Shame on you if you fall for this mentality yet one more time! There is a saying attributed to Einstein that says that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
I used to wonder how in the world the Germans could have voted for Hitler. A century from now people will be wondering how Americans could have been so ignorant and voted for socialism (communism). Once enlightened, protest is our only option other than revolution. What would the American colonists have done?
If you can’t stomach writing in Ron Paul, who is founding father material and believes in the Constitution and a free market, who has a consistent voting record for liberty, small government, believes in a non-interventionist foreign policy, and wants to audit and reform our financial system, and who is really the best and honest candidate we have had in our life times, then vote for Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny or Aunt Clara or even yourself. It would be a better vote than one for evil.
