Question for the Repubs:

Is it better to stay pure and support a candidate who's exactly what you want, who can win the nomination but likely lose the general election;

OR

Sacrifice purity & perfection by supporting a candidate you may not agree with 100%, but one who would stand a much better chance of beating Barry?

You can only choose one.

Which is it?

Well you are never going to find a candidate that you agree with on every single issue, not possible. I say make a list of the 3 - 4 most important issues to you and and vote for the person that agrees with you the most times on your most important list.

If both candidates have the same score on your most important list pick the one with the best chance at winning.

The best for protecting the republic, whom you feel has the most integrity, the most sincere honesty , and will preserve the value's we so cherish.

SInce that's a FAT chance ! at least when your planting your garden and
digging a cave you will have a clean conscience.

Here's a story from Jerry Clower. Seems a guy named John climbed up in a tree at night thinking he was going to knock out a coon. Turns out he was attacked by a lynx instead. He called for someone to to shoot from the ground. The guy on the ground refused to shoot because he was afraid he might shoot John.

The punch line was:"just shoot here anyway, one of us needs some relief."

And we need some relief from Obama...unless this person is proven to be far worse than Obama, we need the relief.

Watch at YouTube

90% of life is "showing up"

Well, just as Reagan showed us you don't have to settle for less!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

fwiw..

I worry about this issue a lot...I think the pragmatist in me will win, but so far all the candidates remind me of Igor in one way or another....

Perry is absolutely a non starter on the issue of immigration alone..
I like Paul, but pacifism will not get us far with the mideast slavering like a mad coyote..I really want to see some one who will end the wars, bring the troops home, but make it clear to anyone concerned...That they don't really want us to have to come back.....
