Politics is a zero-sum game. That which does not hurt the Democrats helps them.

A vote for a third party will always indirectly aid whomever wins the election. It either permits them to win with fewer votes or prevents the other side from having enough votes to win. This is the way it is.
It it less than the idea we'd want? Certainly. But prove to me that Harry Reid in charge of the Senate is a better outcome for the country.
The question is why would you want to "pull the lever" for the Democrats?
Even so, if a conservative stays home instead of voting, they are siding with the Democrats - which doesn't sound very conservative to me.
The "foreign object" was a fan. Why could this not have been stated this way in the post? Beyond that, it feels like a mountain was made out of a molehill....
So why should the government encourage or endorse traditional marriages that have no intent of creating children (because they don't want them or are too old to have them)?

Don't 'Vote for the Candidate'

By all means think. Reason it out. If you actually do that you will reach the conclusion that it is better to vote for the Republican than to throw your vote away on a third party or not vote at all and give aid to the Democrat. If you actually think about and reason it though, it is logical. You speak of using critical thinking, but refuse to do so when it defeats your purpose.

Any vote for a third party candidate (or just staying at home) is an implicit vote for the Democrat. That is the reason for voting for the Republican. We need to demote Harry Reid.

"Marriage is about the welfare of children." Agreed. But by making this statement you open the door to asking why then the state should acknowledge/endorse heterosexual marriages that will not produce or raise children (either because they just don't want to or because they are too old to do so). Unfortunately, this illustrates why the issue of homosexual marriage has been able to get the foothold it has - its essentially impossible to argue against it without also including some groups of traditional marriages.
