Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler » Don’t Beat Up The Few Conservatives We DO Have

Are you looking for the CURRENT VERSION of the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler?

Reading through comments and posts all over the Blogosphere, it struck me that there seems to be a slightly inconsistent manner in which this whole “stay at home” thing is being interpreted. Sure, there are quite a few of us, yours truly very much included, who won’t vote for Juanita McVain, but why not do something with that protest above and beyond just staying at home altogether?

Being fortunate enough to live in a place where both my Senator and Representative up for election in November are very much conservative indeed, it strikes me as quite irrational to be punishing THEM for the RINO establishment’s insistence on serving up nothing but turd sammiches for the position of President, so I most certainly WILL show up to vote for THEM.

Not only would it be silly to protest the lack of conservatism by refusing to vote for conservatives (if you’re lucky enough to have one to vote for, of course), voting for everything BUT the backstabbing RINO turd that we may end up with as our nominee sends more of a message than staying away altogether.

As to what to do with the Presidential part of the ballot, I’ve been pondering various alternatives. Leave it blank or write in and, in the latter case, who to write in? Given the choices we’re likely to have, anything from Genghis Khan to Mickey Mouse would seem more reasonable than what’s on the menu, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ll just write in Fred. If enough people do so, that too will send a message, as in “listen, I take my voting rights seriously and I showed up to vote, but there was nothing there to vote for so I just wrote in somebody that I WOULD have voted for.” Again: if enough people do so, it’ll be bloody hard for the RINOs and the MSM to spin it, as they’re sure to try to do.

Anyway, just a few thoughts. Your mileage may, of course, vary.

    if you can’t bring yourself to vote for the D or the R vote libertarian or green or write in your preference (FRED) but go vote. it may make no diference to the immediate outcome but they will notice. there is no “wasted” vote unless you don’t vote.

    That’s exactly my plan and I know of several other conservative bloggers that plan to do the same thing, such as Bernard at A Certain Slant of Light and I think that Jake and MJ at Freedom Folks plan to write in Fred as well.

  5. hitnrun Comment by hitnrun UNITED STATES

    One of the problems with the whole “I’ll never vote for McCain!” movement is just that; people not showing up to vote at all.

    Sure, you and me will turn out but if people like you and me (i.e. politically engaged internet users) could swing an election, McCain would have finished second-from-last in front of Ron Paul. And for that matter, Howard Dean would be running for his second term.

    This is why the “WRITE IN FRED THOMPSON” campaign is so important, and even more important is that it bear the title “WRITE IN FRED THOMPSON” and not “Never McCain”. People who aren’t adept in the ways of politics and the banalities of the MSM don’t realize that “Never vote for John McCain” and therefore staying at home will

    a) probably result in their Congressman gets replaced by a Shrillary drone and
    b) be interpreted as half a vote for Hillary, Socialism, Entitlement, Bill and his Second through Eighth Ladies, and social-worker-ocracy by the only analyzers who matter.

    Remember, these are the same people who parsed the 2004 results and decided that it was “values” (i.e. redneck American moralizing) that had decided the Bush-Kerry election, which was news to the approximately 80% of the voters who decided on other issues. The MSM may be biased in favor of liberalism, but they’re much more biased in favor of banality and simple narrative, which is why it’s important to WRITE IN FRED THOMPSON and tell everyone to WRITE IN FRED THOMPSON.

    (Actually, it’s more important at this stage to vote for Mitt Romney. There are a lot more red states on Super Tuesday, I haven’t given up hope on beating McCain yet.)

    On election day, I will show up.

    I will cast my vote for the re-election of Senator John Cornyn.

    I will cast my vote for the re-election of Rep. Michael McCaul.

    Both are rock-ribbed conservatives.

    But trust me, if John McVain is the Republican nominee, then I will either leave my ballot blank in the choices for president, vote for some obscure 3rd party candidate who has no chance, or write someone in. There is no way I will vote for the liberal trojan horse John McVain.

  7. Unregistered Comment by Bill Quick UNITED STATES

    Misha, that will be my approach as well. I live in California, so my votes below the presidential level will still most likely be meaningless, but I can never resist the opportunity to vote against Nancy Pelosi, and I get to do that at least every two years until eternity or her defeat, whichever comes first, but there are always greedbag, statist initiatives I can help squash, and we actually do have some success against those every once in a while here in the reddish orange state.

    I’m not advocating staying at home. In fact, I’m advocating going to vote - for Fred Thompson, (if you can, even with a write-in) to re-send the message that got spun into oblivion by both parties in 2006 - and for or against anything else you think might advance the conservative or libertarian causes.

    We conservatives and libertarians aren’t going to see anything we much like in November, but that’s the price you pay when you forget the principles that brought you victory in the first place. Still, with 2006 we started the rebuilding process, and in 2008 we can do as much as we can to keep it perking along. The next four years are not going to be particularly pretty, so let Cankles or Hussein and the Dem congressional clown-show take all the credit for them.

    As you say, of course, your mileage may vary.

    OT: I *still* think the combo of “canker” and “cackle” works better as a definition for Cankles than merely some broad with fat ankles.

    I think I’ve been saying that all along. I’m just waiting until next Monday to decide if Romney has a chance here. If he’s anything close to pulling it off, he’s got my vote. If it’s looking like a blowout for McCain, I’ll vote Fred (he’s still on the ballot, so it’s easy).

  9. Eyas Comment by Eyas

    AMEN!

    Over the past week, I have been trying to get posters on other forums to join in such an Anti-McCain write-in campaign. If McCain wins the nomination, this is the only alternative for any true conservative. A vote for McCain is not something that a conservative would do. Staying at home does nothing. A write-in campaign may not be anyone’s first choice, but should McCain win (which is starting to seem inevitable) it is the ONLY choice left to us conservatives.

    I had suggested Ronald Reagan, but Fred Thompson will do just as well. If every conservative joins in this campaign (rather than abandoning principles to vote McCain) — it CANNOT be ignored by the media, and would certainly be emphasized by conservative hosts like Rush Limbaugh.

    Remember, even if McCain wins the Republican nomination — Conservatives STILL HAVE A VOICE that we can make heard.

    WRITE-IN Fred (or Reagan) - we must settle on ONE write-in candidate.

  10. DaToad Comment by DaToad UNITED STATES

    I absolutely agree. Get out there and vote.

    I don’t believe that I could force myself to vote for Lettuce under any circumstances and I’d slit my wrists before I would vote for Shillary or B-HO. Mitt? Well maybe, but in my NSHO, he ain’t much of a choice either.

    As I’m thinking about what’s happened to the GOP and how the RINO’s have disinfranchised most true conservatives, maybe it’s time for the Duncan Hunters, Fred Thompsons, Jeff Flakes, et al to pack up and leave the GOP. (After all, there are more than 50 political parties in the USA.) While most are pretty much just noise, there are still a lot of conservatives out there that don’t want anything to do the GOP and this election is going to drive a lot more away. Could all these conservatives actually unite and become a serious force?

    Libertarian Party
    Constitution Party
    Independant American Party

    As a voter in the south suburbs of Chicago (city of corrupt politicans), we mostly get served up a lot of turds.

    I still fight the good fight and vote the most conservative candidates available.

    But we still get turds, with the IQ of a digested turnip.

    It’s always nice to hear that there is someone here backing me up. Sometimes, if it weren’t for the initiatives, I don’t think I’d even bother to go vote. And as long as I’m there, I might as well give a little sign that, yes Nancy, there are people that don’t like you politics. :em96:

  13. Unregistered Comment by Stashiu3 UNITED STATES

    I will be showing up at the polls and writing in Fred Thompson. Leaving the ballot empty of a vote for President invites the “voter intent” review we saw in Florida where some hand-counted ballots that didn’t have a vote for President were “interpreted” based on how the rest of the ballot looked.

    I would also love to see conservatives form their own party, perhaps the “United American Party” with an American Eagle as the mascot. I don’t consider myself a Republican right now because the GOP no longer represents my values.

  14. LC Wyatt Earp Comment by LC Wyatt Earp UNITED STATES

  15. Rainy Comment by Rainy

    Everyone in CO HAS to vote. Our senator, Wayne Allard, is retiring and it will be a battle between Mark Udall and Bob Schaffer to replace him. Our governor and Legislature are already trying to tax us to death after they all beat the wimpy Republican candidates in the last election. And then we have Ken Salazar, traitor to the West. Too bad his brother John is just a Rep. He’s the MUCH better brother.

    The only consolation is that Mark Udall is a pretty level-headed guy and doesn’t tend toward the moonbat left. He did back the taking Tom Tancredo out of context thing, but no one is perfect.

    So we in CO will probably have a slew of tax increases to vote against, Bob S to vote for, and who knows what else.

    On Tuesday, I’ll be throwning in my vote for Mitt. Here’s hoping the rest of the country can overcome the stupidity in Florida. Anyone for a national primary now? Please?

    Yay! The Empeorer has spoken and I, being a psychic serf, came up wth this idea yesterday. Flat out staying at home is bad. You MUST vote if only to show your respect th the soldiers, sailors, Airmen and Marines who have for the last 200+ years protected our worthless buts. :em03:

    Vote for the most conservative person locally, (and if all that are running are Tranzi socialists write in your name), and write in the Thompson/Hunter ticket. Or, if you like, write in the nutjob/fruitcake ticket.

    That would be Paul/Kucinich. Doesn’t matter which one is first, they both need massive doses of Thorozine and Lithium) :em01:

    Thanks for the links, and I have read him before. Just remembered the words, not who wrote it, and …you know search engines.

    Increasingly, Americans will come to believe that the only people hard-headed enough to fight the religious lunatics of the Muslim world are the religious lunatics of the West. Indeed, it is telling that the people who speak with the greatest moral clarity about the current wars in the Middle East are members of the Christian right, whose infatuation with biblical prophecy is nearly as troubling as the ideology of our enemies. Religious dogmatism is now playing both sides of the board in a very dangerous game.

    This is where I always have problems. While I try to be the best Christian I can, I’m not concerned with prophecy, in that I am not looking forward helping Him fulfill it, G-d’s time and all. He seems to accuse all faiths of having the ultimate goal of apocalypse as in “we are the generation to meet G-d and nothing could be worse than the crap we are having to endure.”

    My life isn’t ideal, and I don’t like all the things going on around me, but I think things would be much, much worse before He pulls the plug on this.

    And I put in a request to the library for the book and I’m first on the list, so I can pick it up tomorrow. I’ll read it and see.

    McCain 2008…….after a day or two fighting back barfing, I started thinking. Listen up lil rotties,I may be on to something here. One of Mcvains weaknesses is with true conservatives AND he is VERY tight with FRED. Therefore I predict a McCain/Thompson ticket. Secondly, McVain is older than dirt, meaning he could croak in 2009-2010, making FRED Prez the easy way. Ponder this. It could Happen !!!

  22. LC Rurik Comment by LC Rurik UNITED STATES

    I too agree with the Emperor. We need to vote the rest of the ticket. Neither of my senators is up for rebuke this cycle, but our representative is a pretty little thing who is in desperate need of premature retirement. Sadly, I had my reservations about Fred dating from his lackadaisical mishandling in 2000 of his senate committe during the Clinton impeachment fiasco. His subsequent (lack of) activity has not reassured me. :em98:

    So I’m going to cast a vote for a good and reasonable woman for president. NO! Certainly not the Beeste. :em38: I will proudly and defiantly cast my write-in vote for Jeane Kirkpatrick. I offiicially joined the GOP in 1988 and worked to gain her the nomination instead of Bush I. I still think that she’s been our best option continually since 1988. She’s dead now, but she can still serve as a symbolic figure.

  24. SoCalOilMan, LC Comment by SoCalOilMan, LC UNITED STATES

    While I won’t say you’re wrong on your vote for Kilkpatrick Rurik…It is your vote…however, I think a much stronger message would be sent to the GOP if Thompson received a significant number of votes even though he’s not in the race anymore. Perhaps that would be a wake up call that the base isn’t happy. If he got a few percent, that would be a victory.

    I wouldn’t do it if it could jeopardize a close outcome where you live, but I live in L. A. Kalifornia, so figure I’m going to lose, but I keep on, keeping on. :em98:

  25. DaToad Comment by DaToad UNITED STATES

    LC HOGHEAD V, nice thought. We’ll have to wait and see who lettuce picks, but I suppose Fred is a possibility.

    McLame is old and could expire in office from old age. He’s also at risk from melanoma. As we’ve seen through history, sitting presdents do have a fair chance of contracting lead poisoning.

  26. LC Gunsniper Comment by LC Gunsniper UNITED STATES

    Well, I will be at the polls come election time and I will be writing in a candidate but not FRED! I like his politics and all but he just didn’t rise to the occasion. Moreover, he showed all of the enthusiasm of a room temperature bowl of tapioca. My vote will go to Gen. David Petraeus, a soldier who took a basket case of a country and with the aid of about thirty thousand highly motivated soldiers turned it around for the better to such a degree that even the foreign press had to grudgingly admit Iraq was improving.

    Now imagine what that good General could do with America as Commander in Chief. Hell, just imagine 1.5 billion Muzzies hearing the words President David Petraeus and simultaneously shitting in their pants.

    SoCalOilMan

    Your words have some sense, and I will keep them in mind, particularly as the season develops.

    Something else we should keep in mind about the McCrazy one. He has a record for bad luck. Even before he was shot down, he was a jinx. You may remember that the USS forrestal. On July 29, 1967 there was a serious accident on the launch deck. A Zuni rocket on an F-4 Phantom auto-launched striking an underwing fuel tank of one of the A-4 attack planes, preparing to launch. The A-4’s fuel tank caught fire, and the resulting inferno almost sank the aircraft carrier. The pilot of the A-4 was totally blameless, and managed to escape the flames. But guess who he was. Yep. It was John. Before that, he had a couple of ejections over the Atlantic due to engine failures. Again, not at all his fault. Some guys just have lots of bad luck. It is better to be lucky than to be skilled. But some people keep on drawing the low card. Like a lone freshman Reublican senator falling in with four experienced Democrooks on a standard S&L fiddle, who just happened to get caught. Bad timing and judgment, worse luck. It is clear - John McCain is a shit magnet.

    Very noble and heart warming, but can you tell me the decimal point I should move my calculator to to get a reading of “votes for Petraeus”?

    I admire the General, greatly, for taking on a job that had little positive political upside to it, but he is what he was meant to be, a General.

    A vote for him does not get listed under a conglomerate heading of “Great Americans that should have run”. It becomes “0.00000001% voted Petraeus.

    What I’m advocating is that if you have no chance in hell of nominating someone better than McCain, vote for Fred (omg, of for paul), just so it makes it onto the chart.

    The point is to either do your best to elect someone you think can do some good, or at least vote in a block large enough to make a blip on their screen.

    I’ll post who I voted for and why on Tuesday, I’m not ashamed. In normal conversation I would consider it rude, but here, I know “normal” doesn’t apply.

    Misha, that is truly what we need is a nationwide initiative to write in Fred! as the republican vote!!!!!!!! I wouldn’t vote for anyone else in this upcoming election. Shit, Vince McMahon would probably make a better president than the ones we have to choose from. At least he supports what our troops are doing.

    I agree that it would be a hoot if Fred! won on a write-in campaign.

    I won’t happen of course, but my hope is that a write in would make such a big splash, that the morons in charge would realize they have gone to far. Who knows? A big enough write incould actually be used as a basis for a new Party. :em03: :em69:

    Instead of Fred, Mickey Mouse, Ghengis Khan, Attila the Hun, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity,or even Gen. Petraeus, write in Duncan Hunter. He is great on immigration, taxes, 2nd amendment, abortion, and the rest of the issues important to conservatives. I don’t recall who (or if) he endorsed when he withdrew.
    The idea of voting McCain/Thompson, gambling that McCain will croak before he can sign tax increase bills, amnesty for illegal aliens bills, appoint liberal activist judges, etc., is dangerous. You may very well lose the bet. I could support a Hunter/Thompson or Thompson/Hunter ticket. But, I WILL NOT vote for McCain.
