    I need help voting this Tuesday

    OK so here I am a registered Republican living in Ohio, I am very disappointed AGAIN that the best my party can come up with is an old Senator with a liberal voting record and no clue as to how Conservatives are supposed to govern. It looks to me like another Bob Dole disaster in November.

    There is no apparent reason for me to vote in the Republican primary Tuesday so I am thinking about voting Democratic for the first time in my life.

    My thoughts are like this. This may be my only chance to vote against Hillary twice in the same election, that is a real plus in my book.

    I am not sure if McCain can beat either of the 2 Libs, some say he can beat Hillary but not Obama, I am not sure.

    So what should I do, vote against Hillary or possibly vote for the guy who can probably beat McCain in November.

    Decisions, decisions, I guess I could always right in Newts name Tuesday.

    Ruin it for Hillary. Put the vote in for Obama. All we conservatives can do is stick to the Clintons. They, Hill and Bill, think they are entitled to it. PACK SAND, CHINA DOLL!!

    Anyway, the Libs/Socialists have won. Hillary, Obama, McCain.......all big government libs. I gotta admit, Soros and company have clearly scored the KO.

    I'm not a fan of ballot switching, but I'll offer this advice. The Dems stand a far better chance of winning if Obama gets the nomination. If Hillary gets it she will probably lose the general election. If she is the Democratic nominee a lot of would-be Dem voters will be crossing over and voting for McCain. I don't care for McCain either, but compared to the other two it's a no-brainer.

    There may still be other candidates on your ballet even though they have dropped out of the race now. Fred was on my ballet even though he had dropped out as were several other candidates. You could always vote for one of them.

    Normally by the time we get to vote here in Ohio the race is over, I did vote for Pat Buchanan against Dole back in 96 even though Dole had already wrapped up the race and Pat had suspended his campaign, kind of hate to waste the vote this time if it can be used for something useful.

    The Obama Zombie nation may be hard to beat. But when they wake up the day after the election, it's too late to change your mind. Sad to say, McCain is all we got right now.

    Dude I would vote for Hillary that is what I am doing; because I also believe that McCain can beat her and not Obama. In Texas we are in the same boat as you are in Ohio the liberal states in the Northeast and in the west have already determined whom we have as a choice.

    When it comes to the general election I am going to write in Alan Keyes because McCain will carry Texas in the General election with or without my vote.

    Wolf boy voting third party is by any estimation a waste of your vote; believe me I have been there done that. Besides that there is no third party candidate of any substance this year.

    Ross Perot was strange but he was at least intelligent had a viable plan for the country and your guy will not be a third party candidate. He is in a losing fight for his congressional seat here now.

    And Ross Perot is also what got Bill Clinton elected. That's what happens when we vote third party in a two party system. Sucks, but that's reality.

    Third party BS is just that...BS. It takes votes from best candidate and gives victory to the one who should be sidelined. If a candidate has a good platform, run on a main party ticket. Otherwise, STFU.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.
