“I can’t, in good conscience, vote for either candidate.” As a Christian, and an American, I have a problem with this idea, because while neither candidate is desirable, one IS better than the other. That’s not to say, you shouldn’t vote for a third party candidate because that’s the party you identify with, and you truly like that candidate, but if you’re voting for what’s in the best interest of the U.S., it’s not the way to go. Personally, I identify closest with the Constitution Party, but lets face it, they probably won’t garner enough votes to even show up in the final results.
Because the candidate I want to win, doesn’t stand a chance, my next question is what’s best for the country. The answer to that is simple, #NoMoreDemocrats. So I vote for the candidate that has the best chance of beating the Democrat, and in just about every case, that’s a Republican. The bottom line is no matter how bad the character of a candidate is, it’s the policies that that candidate will bring.
The winner of the election is going to be a Republican or Democrat. No other candidate stands a chance. It will be one of the two. So, the realistic choices for President, from a Christian standpoint, are the Democrat whose policies suck, or the Republican whose policies suck a lot less. If you look at it that way, the choice should be easy. So, in good conscience, I have to vote for the Republican.
