You err in assuming that a vote for Paul would otherwise go to McCain. Most Ron Paul supporters I know wouldn't vote for McCain; they would either write in, vote for someone else, or just not vote.Supercat wrote:Correct me if I am wrong but a vote for Ron Paul moves Obama that much closer to the office. It is simply moving the vote away from McCain...
Thus, their votes are not taking away from McCain, nor adding to Obama.
I do not blame anyone in a borderline state if they vote for McCain. But still, I am guided by wise words:
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.
