Today is election day! Celebrate! Many will tell you that today is about America rejecting Obama’s liberal vision for America. More reasonably it’s about the fickleness of the American voter. Two years ago people thought the Republicans’ antics were to blame for the bad economy. Now that the Democrats are in power it’s their fault. Maybe I’m wrong, but I wouldn’t credit the American people for correcting mistakes made in the 2008 election.
The point and title of this post is about Christine McDonnell. Fox News commented, and probably rightly so, that…well allow me to let this guy explain it…
This is good. All the polls say she [McDonnell] will lose to the Democrats, whereas the Republican she beat to the nomination would have won handsomely.
The Tea Party probably have until the votes are counted in November, when the Republicans at large will realize they are a liability and a threat, not an asset. And that will be the end of Palin’s pretensions and hopefully Murdoch will have the good sense to fire the moron Beck.
The point is if the Republicans had elected a moderate they could have picked up this seat. I dare say that it doesn’t matter. You vote for the best candidate available. The most constitutionally fit, conservative candidate who would help America the most. If they don’t win the general election so be it, but what does it say about Democracy when you intentionally vote for a mediocre candidate because you think they’ll beat a candidate that is even worse.
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”
