    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?

    I have always been a big fan of the Constitution Party, and have given them money quite frequently. But I cannot let my country commit suicide with Obama.


    Patience is the key - we conservatives got lazy and the Republicans got comfortable, but the answer is NOT to throw the Republicans out. It is simply too hard to displace a sitting congressperson and giving that many seats to the Dems would not "save" the party, it would doom the country.


    We can say goodbye to property rights, gun rights, freedom of speech and religion, we can kiss our economy goodbye and there will be NO getting it back. The Democrats these days are MARXISTS. The nuts and hard core leftists CONTROL the party. These are not the Democrats we grew up disagreeing with. They are the hard core socialists . These are - DU like people and they HATE anything that stands in their way. They are the Daily KOS and Huffington post people that CELEBRATE the death of those they disagree with. They ADMIRE dictators like Hugo Chaves who jails his opposition and shuts down dissenting papers, radio and television stations and even has his thugs KILL dissenters.

    THIS is their model. If they gain power - that is the road we are going down.


    I have not even started on the way they would deal with Islamic terrorists.

    Make no mistake. The media picked our candidate by marginalizing the good ones.

    Whether it was a clever ploy or ironic circumstance, a true conservative should have won, but there were too many on the playing field at the beginning of primaries. The early States votes got split between three or four conservatives. This diluted the conservative vote while the moderate vote started to isolate around mccain. By the time it was just huckabee and mccain it was already a foregone conclusion.
