Comment: My recommendation

My recommendation

I believe this presidential primary season was tremendous, a rare opportunity to shift the party and the culture in our direction and one we made the most of. But it is hard to turn a nation, it is a mighty big ship. It certainly won't occur as a result of this presidential election.

We have done important work. In comparison, the vote we cast in November is not terribly important. Hence, I will not judge anyone based on it. I certainly will not get enraged or indignant.

Some may have practical reasons to nominally support Romney (for instance those who have won party positions like Rand) and others may receive therapeutic benefits in voting for Gary Johnson or writing in Ron's name. Many won't vote.

My personal recommendation is to vote your conscience and don't lose any friendships over it. Then, throw yourself back into the real battle.
