It appears increasingly like that either John McCain or Rudy Giuliani will be the Republican nominee. So I ask you this: as a conservative would you vote for either of these “men”?
The blog RochesterConservative has an interesting take on whether or not we should support the “lesser of two evils”:
I heard someone (I think it was Alan Keyes) say once that if my choice for dinner is between a poison that will kill me quickly or a poison that will kill me slowly, “I’ll starve, thank you very much.” It would seem to me a more Biblical position to take — although, admittedly, what appears to be a less pragmatic one — for a Christian to vote their conscience (guided by Scripture), regardless of whether the person they’re voting for actually has a chance of winning.
McCain and Giuliani are the poison that kill us slowly. That’s the only difference between them and Hillary.
So I’ve decided, with a heavy heart, to vote for Romney on February 5. He’s not perfect, but he’s far better than Rudy or John. With Huckabee nearly out of the race, Romney represents the best chance of having a candidate who is better than the lesser of two evils.
