Long Term Political Suicide Is Good For You

Is there a good reason to vote for Mitch McConnell? | RedState

This is what separates conservatives from the GOP establishment that will willingly lose a seat to a Democrat, with whom they have a joint interest in cronyism, rather than support a conservative. We will hold our nose and pull the lever for the Republican.

Which is why they have absolutely no fear of killing our candidates.  They know that in the end we’ll “hold our noses and pull the lever for the Republican.”

There is great truth in the saying, “You get what you pay for.”  And if what you pay for (by voting for them no matter what) is crappy, conservative-hating statist Republicans, that’s what you’ll keep right on getting.

This sort of suicidal idiocy is called pragmatism among people who really don’t have the best interests of conservatives, liberty, or America at heart at all.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. We will hold our nose and pull the lever for the Republican.

    Some – often enough, far too many – will; none should – if all you’re going to do is vote for the “lesser of two weevils”, why not vote for the Big Bug to begin with, and slice your own throat with the sharp, quick blade, instead of using the dull, rusty, jagged-edged, slow box-cutter? Do you enjoy prolonged pain and suffering that much?

    Or – better yet, don’t vote at all – leave all the decision-making up to the “professionals”. Every bit as self-destructive, in the end, and you can mostly avoid seeing “the end” approaching by simply ignoring it, right?…

    Personally, I can’t do any of that any more – much too busy, holding my nose with one hand against the awful stench of “weevils”, whether Greater or Lesser, while the other hand is fully occupied searching out a useful “third way” choice – one that actually appears to offer some potential for real progress towards what we say (or, at least, used to say – out loud, even!) we want this country to be like – then promoting and voting for that choice, whenever and wherever possible.

    Mostly kinda “futile”, maybe, I know – but, it’s all I’ve got. I try to talk to other folks who seem pretty unhappy with the way things are going these days, maybe get them to do the same kind of thing…

    Keeps both hands kinda busy, but it just seems like a better thing to be doing, y’know?
