Maybe I should have done more

One of the things I just love is when some clown on a conservative site starts shooting off his mouth (well, his fingers I guess) at someone who says they are going to vote, or voted for a Libertarian candidate. They usually say one of two things: That they are wasting their vote, or that they're helping the Dem candidate.

During the course of the Gubernatorial race, I, as well as a few others, essentially said "Why vote for Democrat-lite when you can vote for the real thing?". I subsequently voted for Ken Proctor, the LP candidate. It was a combination of "I'm pretty sure Snyder is going to win" and "Even if he doesn't, it probably wasn't going to be much worse".

After the State of the State address, it seems that not only was I right, but that I should have done more. I had the opportunity to do an interview with Ken, but didn't get around to doing it (I was living in Mt. Pleasant at the time). Right Michigan may not be the be-all and end-all of Michigan conservative politics, but I'm sitting here, wondering if putting an interview transcription might have made some kind of a difference.

Indeed, there are some concerns that even I have in regards to how the Libertarians want to handle the issues of defense and immigration, but I think that will be easier than having RINOs and Dem's getting their crap together.

  1. Coulda. Woulda. Shoulda.

    Hindsight is always 20/20 in these situations.

    The main thing here is to learn from our mistakes and apply those lessons towards how we act in the future in similar situations.
