John Quincy Adams said, "Duty is ours; results are God's." Let us determine to do our duty (vote on principle) and know that God has determined the results.
Every election year, seems the pickings get slimmer and slimmer -- especially in the higher offices. Some will consider voting for a third party candidate, and will hear "Voting for a third party candidate is a wasted vote. There is no chance that person can ever be elected."
Want to hear what I think is a wasted vote?? (Possibly not, but I'll tell ya anyway). A wasted vote is a vote for a person you know does not hold anything near your principles (or doesn't have any principles). Some people call it holding their nose and voting. Voting that violates your conscience is a wasted vote. Voting for a worthless candidate who actually gets elected is the most wasted vote!!!!
This year there are a few folks I won't vote for because the chances they will be elected are too great. Wouldn't want to have that on my conscience.
