The ‘fools’ that elected this fool (Obama) were mostly either already dead, voted multiple times, voted in multiple states, or did not even exist in the first place.
But I take issue with this public comment by Glenn Wehe on Sunday:
Personal note to Ed Berry:
Ed, take a chill pill. Blaming folks for our losses because they voted on principle and not party…. is like blaming your doctor when he tells you have cancer. The cancer in the GOP must be cut away or it will not ever heal.
Wehe’s view is at the heart of why Montana elected Democrat Jon Tester to the US Senate in 2006 and again in 2012, elected Steve Bullock as our governor in 2012, and, in a more complicated way, why we did not elect Republicans Derek Skees and Sandy Welch (subject to possible recount) to State Auditor and Superintendent of Public Instruction, respectfully.
Wehe’s view is the reason we have Obamacare, new liberal Supreme Court justices, an out-of-control federal budget, and an emboldened Obama who is quickly moving to control Americans under NDAA and the United Nations.
My position is clear:
When you produce results directly opposite to your “principles” there is something wrong with your hypothesis of operation.
I don’t differ with Wehe on core “principles,” but I strongly differ with him on how to advance his core principles. You don’t advance your “principles” when you vote for Libertarians in the final election!
If it were not for Libertarians and people voting third-party on some mutation of a principle, then there would not currently be as big a perception that conservatism and Libertarianism is so wildly unpopular when the other option is socialism.
At this point I would like to extend a hearty congratulations to Libertarians and non-voting conservatives: my friends, you’ve contributed to your Libertarian and conservative dreams now having no chance of ever being realized.
