What is a protest vote? You hear disgruntled Republicans that say a vote for Romney is really a vote against Obama. Where is the logic behind that assumption? Zero minus zero still equals zero. You have rampant socialism in fourth gear vs. rampant socialism in third gear. No real difference.
You want to help your children and grandchildren? Don’t vote Republicrat. There are two other very clear choices on the ballot, one on the left and one on the right. Do they have a chance? No. But you have a chance to plant a seed. Maybe the other candidates will double their vote total from 2008. Maybe that can be doubled again in 2016. It’s a start to dismantling this “one and the same” party nightmare we’ve created.
You want change? Young people are begging for it and we owe it to them before we’re out of here.
