Those of us who will not vote for either of the media-selected elderly, unemployed millionaires have taken a lot of attacking for sticking to principles. But we ARE WINNING! Look at this from the President of the United States:
“If you vote for a 3rd party candidate that’s a vote for Trump,” Obama said during an interview on Steve Harvey’s radio show.
Third-Party Voters: THIS IS THE FIRST BIG SIGN THAT WE ARE SUCCESSFUL!
Look how frightened the neoliberals are!
If our “insignificant protest vote” is meaningless, then this would not matter to the President.
With this comment, Obama is saying is HE IS POWERLESS AND THAT WE HAVE THE POWER!
Here is what a republican says:
“So let me be clear: a vote for anyone other than Donald Trump in November is a vote for Hillary Clinton.” – Scott Walker
Isn’t it delicious that Mr. Obama is so frightened of you that he has sunk to the level of SCOTT WALKER?
They are both reduced to SCARE TACTICS because of YOU AND ME saying we will vote our conscience.
They both cannot be right… but they both can most certainly be wrong.
Keep it up, friends! If our votes didn’t matter Obama would never have said this.
And don’t let anyone smugly call your vote “a protest vote” as the Withers do. Voting for a candidate who is on the ballot is NOT a protest, it is a well-reasoned choice. Remember the freedom to choose? I thought “liberals” were big on that. Again, we see the wisdom of Phil Ochs, who sagely observed:
“Liberals are 10º to the left of center in good times but 10º to the right of center when it affects them personally.”
Friends, the condescending dismissal of a rational, thoughtful vote as “protest” is odious on many levels. Not least of which is that America was founded on protest.
Protest is enshrined in our Bill of Rights. The Withers reveal their fascist, anti-American attitude every time they denounce protest. In short: screw ’em. They are not what America is about.
