Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power that knowledge gives.
– James Madison
Many, if not most, who vote in a Presidential election consciously realize that both the Democratic and Republican candidates are not worthy of support but they cast their votes under the premise of supporting “the lesser of two evils.” This is often explained asrealistic since one of the two major political party’s candidates will win the election. Such “logic” is faulty and injurious to our liberty. Voters need to vote in light of the obvious truth that no substantial difference exists between Barack Hussein Obama and Willard “Mitt” Romney. Understanding and applying this simple truth – that no substantial difference exists between the 2 major candidates – is liberating. Casting a vote for either Obama or Romney will advance tyranny since both candidates are committed statists who despise the Constitution.
The correct practical strategy is to cast a vote for anyone other than Obama or Romney who appears on the ballot. The establishment will see that a growing number of the electorate refuse to be manipulated by false rhetoric. If either Obama or Romney “win” with less than 50% of the vote this will be a victory for liberty. Voting third party will help foster real political change as the voters help the paradigm shift from the phony “Left vs. Right” conflict to the legitimate battle of the State vs. individual liberty. Well meaning but manipulated voters continue to vote for tyranny based upon a terribly misplaced allegiance to the 2 major political parties. When Patrick Henry wrote, “Give me liberty or give me death” that was not a campaign slogan. As we continue to witness the treason of the federal government we realize that our ultimate political allegiance must be to the Constitution.
