In the 2008 election I was very adamant about not
voting for the lesser of two evils, that God would never want us to
vote for anyone remotely evil. Well, I stand a little bit corrected.
Please read on.
I used to work very closely with a man
who I knocked heads with, quite often, and voting for the lesser of
two evils was one of those topics that we crashed heads on a number
of times. And as good debate can do, I learned that there is
something that I had missed.
Though, I cannot fully
throw my support behind anyone who is even the lesser of two evils,
much less actually campaign for such a person; there is
something that I can do to remove a current person in office, while
not compromising my morals.
With the exception of a
candidate that is pro-abortion or for that which is an
abomination to our Lord. (I won't knowingly support or vote for
such and have learned to not just trust a person's party
affiliation), I say the previous and the following.
is an example of what I am talking about. It is what I am doing
in my district in New York--
The following is a
tweaked (for this article) email that went out to some local
people who are looking to remove Congresswoman Louise Slaughter from
her office and get someone else in:
have been calling the GOP in Monroe Country, every couple of weeks,
asking if they have someone to run against my
congresswoman, Louise Slaughter. So far they have not named
anyone, but they assure me that they will soon. It is my hope that
it is someone who is a good solid conservative that I can
solidly back and campaign for.
no matter what, I am going to campaign against Louise
if the person who is running against Louise Slaughter is not really
someone who I can in all good consciousness support (but would be
far better than Slaughter), I will campaign against Louise Slaughter
and let people make up their own minds. I don't have to campaign for
someone else, in order to campaign against Louise Slaughter. --But
it sure would help.
we should not vote for the lesser of two evils, I have come to
realize that we can vote for the better of the two evils, if it is
part of a plan to get the strongest evil out. This is so that
the next elections we have an easier time getting someone even
better in. --It's a type of stepping plan. I suppose we could
call this a Conservative's Progressive Plan.
plan is to begin to make dates to speak in places, throughout the
28th district and to educate people on the unconstitutionality of
Louise Slaughter's agendas. I want to explain the constitution to
people, who might not understand it. And I am hoping to have many
people present, who already do understand it; so that they can help
those next to them. I want to put those who are educated on the
constitution, in touch with those who would like to be educated on
it. We are in this together. I want this to be a "we" and "us"
campaign to get that woman out!
if we can reach people who normally vote on the liberal side of
things, let's reach them too. Let's try to win them over to the
conservative side. My plan is to stay very respectful (yet firm on
the truth) and not attack the whole of those who have been tricked
by the liberal party. Many of those people are for the same things
that we are for and against much of what we are against, but have
fallen for the liberal lie and just need to learn the truth of what
the liberal party is really doing. Many people just need to see the
truth brought into the light. --And of course, we need to get those
undecided people (however many of them still remain after this past
probably goes without saying that we need to motivate the
conservatives that sit home on Election Day, to get out and vote.
There really are more of us conservatives than there are
liberals. So a large part of my work will be to teach others
how to reach out to those family members, friends and neighbors and
teach them that their votes really will count. I don't know, maybe
we could encourage people to have voting parties, where friends,
neighbors and family members get together for pizza and
soda-pop after they go vote. Now there's an
