Sorry. I will never vote for a RAT to become POTUS. That includes Cristie.
I've read your posts since you came on board and agree much of the time. But, got to disagree on this.
As for purists' staying home because the candidate isn't perfect enough.........I blame them for helping elect a Marxist.
PLEASE............don't do it again!! The country WILL NOT survive another 8 years of this horror.
It makes no sense to sit out an election. Politics and elections are not the same as the marketplace. In the market you can punish a company by withholding your dollars. If enough people stop purchasing, the company will either go out of business or change its ways in order to attract customers again.
In politics, withholding your vote does not punish the Party, it punishes the country. You and your fellow like-minded citizens are the ones that suffer. Not the establishment pols. All that happens is the GOPe loses that
race. There's no lesson learned, they don't "change their ways." They simply move onto the next election.
They're not going to easily give up power just because a few people sit out the vote is the point.
