No more votes for evil

I am hearing from more and more alienated and ex Republicans who are vowing never again to vote for a Bush and many will never vote for another neocon. I will say that I made that vow inwardly a long time ago. A neocon would have quite likely embroiled us in a war already. Even the arch commie Obama hasn't done that.

There is no reason to believe that JohnMcCain would have been a better president.

Recall that McCain:
I stupidly voted for GW Bush and then more stupidly voted for McCain.

Each time I could hear the voices saying "If you don't vote, it's all your fault" or "the ballot box is your only weapon." But when both evils are equal (and all evil is the same), then the ballot box is a weapon turned inward toward the voter.

The weapon of choice is your voice, and the internet with which to inform and encourage others.

It has worked in the past and will work again and again. Here are some examples of success:
  1. In the latter years of the Bush administration, the public jammed government switchboards with calls demanding that lawmakers vote against the Bush-Kennedy 'immigration reform' bill. Despite the almost unanimous support for the bill at the top levels of the GOP, the bill failed.

  2. When Obama threatened to launch a military action against Syria, you will recall that the public put up a hew and cry and polls then showed a complete lack of support. That plan too was defeated.

  3. When war hawks like John McCain urged US military assistance to Ukraine, polls again showed very little support and that plan was shelved.
You and I, We the People, have more power through our voices than we do with our vote because ranking leaders of both parties will not allow us to vote for candidates who side with us. They are driven by a one-world government ideology that Americans consistently reject.

On the other hand, if the leaders of the GOP knew that you would never vote for another RINO or neocon (for example, another Bush) under any circumstances, then they would not dare nominate one of these people. They now labor under the strong delusion that you and I are so afraid of Obama that we will settle for another "lesser of 2 evils" candidate.

But the three examples listed above prove that the people are sick to death of voting for the lesser of two evils and have finally caught on that the lesser evil is still evil

In other words, there is already a grassroots movement that has no name and no funding and ironically, for that very reason, it works better than well organized and well financed movements. It has no name. But if it needed a name, it could be:

NO MORE VOTES FOR EVIL!

We need to prove to the GOP top brass that we will not vote for another RINO no matter what. Once they understand that, they will cooperate, guaranteed. But we need to stop talking as if we see the GOP as potential saviors – something they have shown us over and over that they are not and have no intention of being, ever.
