>By now most of you have probably already heard James Dobson and others talk about the possibility of voting for a third-party candidate if the Republican nominee is not fully pro-choice.
I strongly disagree with this thinking. Voting third-party based on principle may cause some one to have warm fuzzies inside and make them feel better about themselves but in reality it is just hurting the causes that you believe in even more. The best way to get some results on abortion is with the Supreme Court. The next President of the United States will more than likely have to fill in one or two spots on the court. When it comes right down to it, would you rather have Hillary Clinton appointing people like Ruth Bader Ginsburg or would you rather have Rudy Giuliani appointing strict constructionist judges in the mold of Scalia, Thomas, Alito, and John Roberts?
The Anchoress has a blog post on this subject that really makes some great points about why it hurts our causes more voting for a third-party candidate (and ensuring a Hillary Clinton win) than it is to vote for a Republican candidate such as Rudy Giuliani. Instead of making the arguments against voting third-party, I’ll just direct you to her article. In my opinion, she really hits the nail on the head so I highly recommend you read her article. Let me know what you guys think about it. You can find it here.
The Christian conservative leaders have already begun to back off of their threat to vote for a third-party candidate. You can read about it here.
