Answering Ted Olson

"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.

Don't 'Vote for the Candidate'

Then you are being short-sighted. Neither candidate may deserve your vote. But one whether you vote for one of them, a third party candidate or no one at all, you ARE influencing the outcome of the election. So it then comes down to the question, do I want my influence, however small it may be, to be for the Democrat and leftist policies or not.
If you have a crystal ball that can tell you which elections can be safely handed over to the Democrats, by all means. Otherwise, this is just silly.
What we have is a two party system. That is reality. It sucks. Deal with it.
The flaw in your logic is that someone will win the election. You can't separate the refusal to vote for the Republican from the benefit to the Democrat by not voting for the Republican.
I hear you. But your actions only aid and abet those who are worse than the Republicans.
You are free to vote (or not) as you wish. That is your right. It is important however, that you understand that any vote not for the Republican is, in essence, a vote for the Democrat.
Kurt is right. This is the real world. And in the real world, someone is going to win the election whether you vote or not. I know this is difficult for some conservatives to grasp, but welcome to reality.

Get Out and Vote

Anyone who does not vote is supporting the Democrat. Period.
True or False: President Romney would have been better for the country than President Obama.
