I love Ron Paul, but he has no chance at winning.

Don't be foolish and waste your vote. I'm voting for McCain because I believe he is by far the least evil of the main candidates.

Obama and McCain have many differences. You're wasting your vote by not voting for whichever one you think is less evil.

I respect your idealism, but try to be practical for a second.

If the candidates are Obama and McCain, clearly one of them is going to win. Why not vote for the one you think is better?

I value economic freedom so plan on voting for McCain.

The lesser evil argument fails. Im voting third party, neither Chairman Obama or McAmnesty will get my vote.

You criticize McCain for being pro-Amnesty -- but what will you say when Obama is president? Surely he is no better in the Amnesty department.

Unfortunately, voting third party is essentially equal to not voting at all.

I'm sorry guys, but that's just a bad way to think about it.

If Obama wins the presidency, will you be happy that you were "principled" and didn't vote for McCain?

Well maybe a hard defeat is what the Republican leadership needs in order to get is act together. The 06 defeat taught nothing obviously.

Well, Bush won the presidency and I didn't vote for him. I was happy that I was principled and voted for the candidate of my choosing.

Did you vote democrat or some third party?

My point is that it is a waste of a vote to vote for someone who has absolutely zero chance at winning (aka a third party candidate).

You would do better to vote for whoever you believe the least "bad" candidate is.
