Like it or not, its the world we live in, You can have the best ideas, but if you are not in a position to enable them, then they aren't going to do anything. You have to win elections to bring on change. Derek is saying you need to have priorities. You can be pro-life and support traditional marriage, but running on those issues isn't necessarily going to win you more votes. He summed it up well: "You can have the best ideas in the world, but if you keep them to yourself it doesn’t matter. If you do not win elections, nothing else matters. And the way to win elections is to think, act and speak strategically."
Third parties serve only one end - electing Democrats.
"It never ceases to amaze me the way Repubs go after other Repubs..." And yet, you just did: "I suppose he is among those who brought us Dole, McCain and Romney. If so, just getting out of DC may not be sufficient..." Time to let the past go. Time focus on defeating Democrats.
Simple. Vote Republican. If for no other reason to put Harry Reid out of a job and to give the likes of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee a better chance to get something positive accomplished.

Will it stop if Democrats are elected?
And yet you insist on aiding the Democrats by not voting. That is where your reasoning breaks down.

But a vote for the loser means you did not aid the winner. A vote for 'nobody' ALWAYS aids the winner. All I can say is welcome to the real world, where everything doesn't revolve around you.
I just want you to admit to the reality of the situation, Vote (or not) as you wish, but do so fully understanding the consequences.
"And my vote may help someone get elected I cannot support, either. But my vote won't, because my vote only goes to someone who I think will represent me and my values." But it will. Elections are zero-sum games. The non-votes do affect the outcome as they translate to "I accept whoever wins the race." Sorry, but that is just the way it is. As I've said before, you can vote or not vote as your wish. It is your right and I support that.
I never said you did. Let's focus on your vote. If you don't vote, that is one vote that does not count against the winner. If that one vote does not count against winner, its absence could help the winner by not helping another candidate win instead. And if the candidate that wins is the Democrat, then your non-vote has implicitly help him.
You are still dodging my question. I'm not asking about someone else's vote, just yours. I'm just talking about your one vote.. I'll try again.... Can you admit that by not voting you are aiding the Democrats who are most certainly not going to put forward conservative policies to your liking?
