If you don't agree that they're evil and you do align your values with
theirs, I have no problem with you voting for them. When someone says
they must vote for the lesser of two evils, their words, not mine, then
I have to interject. If someone tells me I'm crazy for not voting
"strategically" I just go ballistic. Sorry.
P.S. I have no problem with the way anyone votes, btw, that's your right.
I only have problems with certain reasonings. After all, I might have a
chance to help someone see a better logic. Changing someone's beliefs is
a lot harder. What really makes me mad is seeing people who agree with
Ron Paul but write him off because he's not viable. It just drives me
