Mediaite: Breitbart writer begs Libertarians to vote for Romney. Ain't gonna happen...
Last edited Tue Sep 25, 2012, 09:02 AM - Edit history (1)
In a two-part column over at Breitbart’s Big Government, Kurt Schlichter practically begs libertarians to “support our Constitution” and vote for Mitt Romney this November in order to avoid not only the “destruction of this country” by way of a second Obama term, but also to avoid the destruction of libertarianism by way of the Libertarian Party becoming a pariah.
The begging will not work, especially when it comes with the usual platitudinous overtures to America and the Constitution being at stake; and the suggestion that not supporting Romney is to selfishly disregard of the Constitution in the name of ideology. No matter how you dice the logic, a committed Republican accusing libertarians of not supporting the Constitution is nothing short of laughable.
Why should they vote for Romney? They got their own candidate, AND Romney's dumbass RNC squad slammed their hopes shut and they left the party! I say to the Libertarians "haven't you had enough of being slapped in the face by these guys?"
Will the Libertarians and those conservatives angry with Romney be enough of a factor in the election? Will they be compared to Nader and the (stolen) election in 2000?

I don't agree with the Ron Paul people on many things, but I think some of them have more integrity than others in the Republican Party (eg. I admire their anti-war stance & Paul's opposition to the military-industrial complex), so I'm glad some of them are considering boycotting Romney for the way he treated Paul at the RNC.
