Will I waste my vote?


In 1996, 2000, and 2004, millions of principled conservatives did not vote because they did not see much difference between the major party candidates. Therefore, the conservative vote is already split between the Republican Party and those who will not vote for a "moderate."

A person's vote is truly wasted when he does not use it to express his genuine beliefs. A lesser of two evils vote only leads politicians to act as though they have a mandate to move forward with an agenda that all-too-often hastens the destruction of our country. The major parties offer a choice between driving our country over the cliff at 69 miles per hour or 70 miles per hour. If the fear of voting for a third party is not overcome, there will never be hope for change or for a genuine choice besides the lesser of two evils. A vote for the Constitution Party is a vote for the Constitution and an investment in the restoration of the country.

The United States of America was founded on the belief that people are accountable to God for the principles they stand for and the people they elect to public office. As George Washington said at the 1787 Constitutional Convention, "If to please the people we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we afterward defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God."

More concern with winning and maintaining power than with standing for principle has resulted in compromise by those in office and by those electing them. It is time to do what is right and leave the results to God.
