The Lesser of Two Evils. . .

My Republican friends want me to vote for Mark Kirk for United States Senate. My Democratic friends want me to vote for Alexi Giannoulias. Each of them claims that their particular person is the “Lesser of two Evils.” I haven’t had anyone tell me why one of these is a great choice.
Mark Kirk has proven that he's willing to vote for unconstitutional measures by voting for Cap and Trade, popularly known as, “Cap and Tax.” He has stated that for his particular constituency at the time that it was a good thing for his district. Therefore, it justified a yes vote on that issue in its time, even though it might not be good for the rest of the state. However, as United States Senator for the state of Illinois, he would have had to vote no, since that would be a better benefit for the state as a whole.  Where is the authority for this in the Constitution? He has stated that he won’t fight for repeal of Obamacare either, just tweak it.

And then we have Alexi Giannoulias, he claims that he's the right one for the state. Yet he and his entire party has stood behind our current president who passed horrendously unconstitutional “Obamacare” ‐ at least I can find no authority within the Constitution for the government to get into the healthcare business. In fact I can find no constitutional authority for most of the bills either one of these two mainline parties have supported for many years. This is a party who, over the last two years, has massively borrowed from even our great‐grandchildren's futures.

What about self‐defense rights? And the Right to keep and bear arms? I would really like to know what part of, "shall not be infringed," these two candidates don’t understand. Perhaps they feel like it actually should be interpreted “shall not be infringed very much.” One thing for sure is there is no statement on their websites with clarification.

Now if I say to my Democrat and Republican friends, “Let's take a look at the independent 3rd party choices and see what they have to offer.” The first thing they tell me is, “you're throwing away your vote.” So it finally came to me in the wee hours of the night that even if our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ himself was running on the Libertarian ticket, they would tell me I'm throwing away my vote. That he is completely unelectable. Voting for the 3rd party would split the vote and let the “More Evil” party in as opposed to the “Lesser of Two Evils” party.

So now we come to the old classic definition of insanity, that being, “continuing to do the same thing over and over and expecting a different result." Therefore, if I keep voting for the same 2 parties, I'm just going to keep on getting the same result. One may be a little faster than the other one, maybe not.  But nevertheless, it leads to the same results, more tax and spend! In my opinion tax‐and‐spend equals slavery.  We owe our souls to the government along with our money and our property. Our country in turn has mortgaged our assets to the Chinese, among others. 

The Libertarian candidate does look kind of interesting to me. His name is Mike Labno. After surfing my way to Mike's ( website, one of the first things I see is a quote by Thomas Jefferson:
"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first." ~Thomas Jefferson

Now, I don't suppose for a minute that Mike Labno is our Lord and Savior, and certainly not, “the Messiah.” However, I did like his start ‐ the “chains of the Constitution” to bind government, hmm.
What a novel idea? I was taught about that when I was in school, but my children had never heard of it until I brought it up.  Sounds, ‘kinda,’well, “revolutionary” to me. Oh, that’s right, Ole TJ was a revolutionary!  He was a traitor to the King!

My message to the main parties’ leadership is, “give me a candidate that truly supports smaller government and a big eraser for the rulebooks!”  Give me a candidate that abides within the Constitution. Then I will support your candidate. We don't need all of these laws they keep creating. I don’t see how voting for the Devil or a Demon can be a right choice. How can voting for what's right, be wrong?  Voting for the “Lesser of Two Evils” has brought us to where we are now. I don’t think I am going to vote for the Devil or his Demon!
