    Is anyone here voting Constitution Party? I recently changed allegiances from GOP to the CP although I am still torn as whether to vote my principles or to vote against Obama by voting for McCain. One of the main reasons I changed is due to my study of originalism and I had a slight crisis of conscience especially after being disgusted with the direction the GOP has gone lately. It also frightens me to find myself in the same camp as the Rounulans. :eek:

    If you don't want Obama to win you should vote for McCain. This election is too close to fool around. I would say the same thing to an Obama supporter.

    The Constitution Party is a good alternative:

    I've considered the Constitution Party. Today, I learned that former Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia is the Libertarian candidate. I'm not a huge fan of the Libertarian Party, but I like Barr.

    For those of us who are NRA members, he's also on the Board of Directors so we know where he stands on gun control. I've only begun reading his stance on other issues, so I'm not advocating him just mentioning him as another alternative.

    BTW, I'm not a new member. I had around 2000 posts on the old board. I had to re-register.

    I know for fact I won't vote for McCain or Osama. I was going to do a write in, but thanks for the information on the Constitution Party. That may be my alternative.

    You know, the sad fact is that we could have the reincarnation of Ronald Reagan running in a third party but the die-hard Republicans would vote for a crap candidate like McCain because he is on the Republican ticket.

    The GOP have us trained like dogs to vote for whatever candidate they feed us because they know we are sheep. Screw the lesser of two evils! Yeah, yeah, I know, SCOTUS is the reason to vote for McCain. You hear pavlovs bell ringing in your ear?

    Since my state is almost assured to go to McCain, I can vote third party wth little chance of helping to elect a marxist commie like Obama. he electoral votes for IN haven't gone to a Democrat since JFK in 1960 and even then, it was such a razor thin margin that Nixon could have contested it with little doubt wrt justification. There were also plenty of stories that the Chicago Dems found a way to make the deceased vote Dem in Indiana too--especially close to the Chicago area.

    Just remember that there is a large Black population in your state. They will vote for Obama by a rate of 90%+. They will turn out in record numbers to vote and you may be surprised at how close it will be some of the so called "safe" southern states.
