Vote Conscience Over Party!

I journeyed over to RedState.com to check my account and noticed the following article/thread - http://www.redstate.com/streiff/2016/02/08/breaking.-rand-pauls-new-hampshire-campaign-chair-endorses-ted-cruz/ - posted today. As the silence of liberty becomes more deafening amongst the remaining ‘candidates’, I simply cannot understand how so many in positions of influence claim to support Rand Paul, yet have dropped support for him despite his being a choice on every ballot in the nation. And to then read further that such support has been moved over to Cruz…it is disheartening, to say the least. Is this the path we are to follow in supporting Rand Paul? He did not drop out! If those who claim to support Rand vote for him in New Hampshire (as they can surely do), do those supporters/voters represent a finer movement that comes with the realization of voting with their conscience over party?

 

I suppose we will discover just how many will vote with their conscience versus voting for party. New Hampshire may be just the turning point Rand needs, although I am not so eager to understand this is a definite stretch concerning the circumstances we are faced with.

 

Peace and Love always.

Why do you assume the political class thinks lkke you?

Rand also is out of the race. Yea you can vote for him but unless there is something short of a miracle he wont even place in the primary.

If someone is on every ballot in the nation, it is not correct to say they are out of the race.

Campaign chairs are not exempt from this behavior.
It's all about power, name recognition, celebrity, being part of the winning team.

Principles and conscience down the toilet.

people for the most part don't vote their conscious, principle, or policy.  They vote for who is ascetically pleasing and who they think everyone else likes.  They want to be on the winning team so they can celebrate in mass "We won!" party at the end of it.  This perception of "what everyone else thinks" is why the main stream media are still relevant at all.  The media don't really inform people on the issues, they just inform them on whose most popular.  So if you want to control an election, you just have to manipulate the illusion of popularity.
