The reality is that a vote for the lesser of two evils will not make any significant difference for America. You will lose. America will lose. Whether you are concerned about people's rights, the law, the economy, or even war, there is one essential truth to realize; both the Democratic and Republican candidates will continue the policies of their respective parties that nominated them - the same policies which have led us to where we are today.
Make no mistake about it, Obama tells us he will withdraw from Iraq, but he will actually further invade other countries, McCain says he will give us tax cuts, but overall, he will actually increase spending and taxes. In much the same way, they will both vote to bailout the failed corporations of wealthy Wall Street CEOs, with your money. Study any other issue these candidates disagree on and you will find the same hypocrisy. The core problems in America will not be resolved by either candidate. They are literally puppets of their respective parties, remaining popular by pandering to them. Both parties have been in power for decades without addressing any of the core issues.
You are still free to make a real difference with your vote.
You are still free to lead America by example, rejecting the fallacy that you only have two choices for president. In voting for another party you will not only offer leadership for the rest of the country and set a good example, but also help send a powerful message to Washington. You are free to reject the failed policies of both the corrupt Democratic and Republican parties that have resulted in the severe problems that our nation faces today. You don't have to do as you are told and vote for the lesser of two evils, you still have the freedom to make a real difference, lead by example, and help make a profound statement.
Vote for another party.
Nobody in Washington has a better record of sharing the plain and simple truth with America than Congressman Ron Paul. He always votes with respect to the Constitution of the United States and takes the sworn oath of office to defend the Constitution very seriously. Often, Ron Paul is the sole representative in congress out of 535 to courageously stand up alone and vote in defense of the United States Constitution. The other congressmen often follow the crowd and their political parties in fear of political attacks and a loss in popularity.
Listen to Ron Paul and you will hear the truth.
Join Ron Paul and millions of fellow Americans in sending a strong message to America and the world. Americans are still free to choose who we vote for. We will not be cornered into voting for the lesser of two evils. We reject the failed policies of both the Democratic and Republican parties, that not only have a stranglehold on their party members and our nation's Capitol, but our Constitution and our lives.
Now is the time to stand up for what is right and have your vote counted for something that really matters - the message that Americans are still a free people, and will vote based upon principle, and not for who the media and politicians tell us we must vote for.
Congressman Ron Paul recently endorsed Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party because his principles are close to his own. The more people that join together and support Chuck Baldwin and the Constitution Party, the greater the message sent to the nation and Washington will be. The point is not to win the election, the point is for the message to win. The point is to lead America by good example. The point is to show America that we are still free to vote and the people will not be led like sheep to the voting booths by two parties that wish to have complete control over us. The point is to show that we are still free.
Every vote for freedom will count.
