Comment: At this stage of the game

(See in situ)

At this stage of the game

in the liberty movement (but not limited to it), a vote for Goode or any candidate (and I'm not familiar with him), can serve several purposes:

-protest vote
-if he's legit, reward for a candidate who has a future in the liberty movement
-a vote of one's conscience
-win an election
-strategic value

in this case, Goode will most likely be a protest vote, or a reward for him, or voting one's conscience. or some combination.
