Why “None of the Above” is not acceptable (Vote positive, vote @GovernorPerry )

I admit to voting for a “None of the Above” candidate in the Texas Republican Primary in 2008. However, by that time, my vote was no more than a protest against John McCain, who appeared to have been chosen by the Powers That Be (“PTB”) in the Republican Party, rather than the voters that I knew.

That’s not the case for voters in the Iowa Caucus, and the Primaries in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Florida.

Today’s news includes the NBC News/Marist poll, which indicates that more than half of registered voters in Iowa don’t intend to show up on January 3 for the caucuses. That means that 47% of you will effectively cast 2 votes; votes that have the potential to determine who will become the Republican candidate for President and which will at least decide who stays in the race and who withdraws. You are in a position to tell the PTB who you want on the ballot in November, 2012. Please vote for the candidate that shares your values, not the most electable or not-Whomever.

If I may, I’d like suggest positive reasons to vote in the contests mentioned above and to vote for Governor Rick Perry:

  • 11 years of experience governing Texas, with the second largest population of all the States, an economy that would be in the top 20 in the world if it were an independent Nation, and one of the most diverse populations in the United States.
  • A proven Conservative record, including advocacy for pro-life laws and for traditional marriage.
  • On the record in his books, Fed Up!: Our Fight to Save America from Washington and On My Honor: Why the American Values of the Boy Scouts Are Worth Fighting For. You can read excerpts at Amazon.com and on this blog here and here.
  • A strong record of action to protect the sovereignty of the United States, the individual States, and the border between Texas and Mexico, and
  • a personal history of volunteering to serve in the United States Air Force, achieving the rank of Captain as a pilot, marriage to Anita for nearly 30 years, and an outspoken man of faith.

  1. My nephew and some of his friends are going to change their political affiliation to Republican instead of Democrat just so they can be in on the caucuses. Then, they plan to cast their vote for the one they feel is the easiest for Obama to beat in the hopes that the rest of the country will blindly go along with whatever the Iowans decide.

    • I witnessed these sort of recruitments back in ’08. It’s their choice.
      In Texas, we had one of our county/Senate conventions taken over, and several others where the paulers tried. We had a lot of Rush’s Operation Chaos voters, which cost us at least one good Conservative, who lost by less than 20 votes out of 30,000!
      Hopefully, over the big races, the switchovers will even out.
