70. In This Context It Would Absolutely Be Irresponsible To Vote Your Conscience.
If doing so is technically facilitating the election of a far worse and dangerous candidate; in the republican, then I'm not sure how anyone could possibly argue that it's anything BUT irresponsible.

Someone lobbying for or supporting votes for Nader is doing the exact same thing as if they were seeking half votes for the republican candidate. So if someone with progressive ideals hit the streets and worked hard to get people to cast half their vote for the republican (if such a thing were physically possible), would you consider that to be responsible or would you consider it to be completely ass backwards in logic and a sign of significant ignorance and narrow mindedness?
