I can sympathize with your feelings. I’ve voted in 8 presidential elections and it is ALWAYS a compromise and frequently a defensive vote. Nobody is ever going to agree 100% with me so of course I take the lesser of two evils. At some point though I realized that I’m not going to dig my heals in and say never, ever, ever because that’s more about pleasing me rather than making any kind of difference.

What I suggest may happen is a third party candidate (propped up with stealth Democrat money) and as a result another win for Obama. If a conservative candidate who doesn’t scare the pants off independents can get the GOP nomination then great but I’m not going to toss my vote away on a third party candidate just to feel good about myself. The cost of of 4 more years of Bambi I think is more than the benefit of sticking it to those “country club Republicans”.

Very well said! I hope the 3rd party voters will take note, but I fear they won't. They are so hung up on “voting their conscience” that they don't realize what that vote will bring us. I feel sure that the democrats are already preparing to send in a 3rd party shill in 2012 (like Perot) so they can get 4 more years of “the one”.
