She gets it

Rachel Lucas figures out why many conservatives and Republicans won’t be voting for John McCain:

The moment of my epiphany was when one parent said something that was almost verbatim what I’ve said about voting for McCain and the fact that you are getting a new president whether you like it or not so you may as well do what you can to get the less shitty one. It was something like, “Well, Billy IS going to smoke pot. There’s nothing I can do about that, he’s GONNA smoke it no matter what I say. So I may as well at least try to keep him as safe as I can, and if that means I have to buy it for him, I will.”

Quickly I ran it through my brain: what if I had kids and was in this situation? Would I get drugs for them just because that was better than them getting drugs from strangers and scumbags? Especially if I knew for a fact that my kids were just dumb enough to get busted and would almost certainly end up in jail if I didn’t choose the lesser evil by getting the drugs for them?

Shit no, I wouldn’t! Because it would violate my principles.

Bingo! Supporting the lesser of two evils is STILL SUPPORTING EVIL! I understand why those who will vote for McCain as a vote against Obama are doing so; what they don’t understand is that this guarantees that the Republican party will continue to move further to the Left if they are successful.
