I have to re-blog this from the great Vox Day who calls out Joe Farah at WND as cracking under the pressure in his call to vote for Mitt or else we're doomed - very doomed etc.
I won’t be voting for Romney because I think he will save America or reverse our dangerous course. But I will likely be voting for him to buy America the time it needs to avoid catastrophe. It’s just that simple – and sad.
|Vote for Romney and we'll turn off the bright light.|
(if you believe that, you'll believe anything.)
To which, Vox responds and earns his title of cruelty artist:
Yeah, that's a new one. Principles are important, except of course when they are trumped by the frightening possibility of someone becoming president who is already president. It's disappointing to see Farah buying the usual nonsense, which we have heard every four years since 1992, especially since he is throwing a lot of his hard-won credibility out the window.To be fair to Joseph Farah, he does have drones spying on him. As he told Alex Jones just a week ago, and as reported on Drudge, a drone followed him at his secluded rural Virginia home while he was walking his dog. He tried to laugh it off in the interview, but the reality is chilling for those of us who realize that Joseph Farah is the proprietor of the #2 outlet behind drudge in web news. They can arm those things you know, and all the evidence will be "national security". Nice. Looks to me like the intimidation is working. Vox extends the cruel reality to anyone else who buys this garbage:
Is President Goldman Sachs really that much worse than President Bain Capital? Is he actually worse than Satan himself? After all, less than seven months ago, Farah wrote: "I would not vote for Mitt Romney if he were running against Satan himself."
My prediction: if Farah does vote for Romney and Romney wins, we'll be reading a self-flagellating column sometime in 2013 where he laments having sacrificed his principles and voting for a man who so badly betrayed all the conservatives and the small-r republicans who voted for him. Doesn't anyone ever learn from the past? Can't anyone see how the game is played?
If you truly do not understand that a non-vote for Romney is absolutely not a vote for Obama, you are an astonishingly stupid individual. 1+0!=2. A vote for Obama is a vote for Obama. Not voting for Obama cannot, in any sense, be considered a vote for Obama. Political applications do not alter mathematics. If you cannot master basic addition, I not only don't want to hear your opinion about the election, I don't think you should be permitted to vote. Negative, "pragmatic" voting is an inherently self-defeating concept that only guarantees the very results it is supposed to oppose.
I started to smell a big stinky in the 2008 election when a decorated POW wouldn't put out any attack ads on a guy who ran around with commies, didn't have a birth certificate, valid SSN, or even a verifiable past, except hanging out with ex-domestic terrorists, the Weatherman. Yeah, nothing about that made sense to me on any level. That's when I started digging, and what I found was more frightening than I could have ever imagined. So if you're trying to use fear, GOP, epic fail. You're trying to make me afraid of an individual (Obama) and ignore the vampire squid of a system that produced him, nurtured him, and sustains him. Whatever.
Bonus Jerry Doyle telling it like it is:
