I live in Utah which is just about as Red and Conservative as a state can get. However, I have never voted a straight ticket even once. I have always done the research and voted for the best candidate. Not one of my votes was wasted. It was still my vote and my voice.
This election is clear, Romney is far and away the best candidate, and all of us no matter where we live must make our voices heard!
Finally, Mr. Girdusky you are simply wrong, there is a huge differences between the candidates, if you want a return to a monarchy simply vote for Obama or a third party.
