Either I vote my conscience in the 2008 Presidential election or I don’t vote in the 2008 GOP primary – that is apparently my choice.
If you’re planning to vote in Virginia’s February Republican presidential primary, be prepared to sign an oath swearing your Republican loyalty.
The State Board of Elections on Monday approved a state Republican Party request to require all who apply for a GOP primary ballot first vow in writing that they’ll vote for the party’s presidential nominee next fall.
I am not signing no damn oath and no one can take my right to vote away from me. I will vote in the GOP primary without being coerced by a bunch of insecure right wingers. These fools first tried to go without primaries and just hold a convention to try and remove the democratic process from the Republican party. They did this because they KNOW VA is going to nominate right-center candidates to fend of left-center Democrat candidates. The far right knows it is losing clout in VA and wants to hold onto power at any cost.
Now they are attempting to force people to sign a pledge before we know who the candidates are and we have the 2008 presidential public debate. Well screw the GOP in VA? These actions remind me of the Dems in Texas who ran away from the state to avoid facing the fact the electorate was rejecting what they were offering. I am a proud ex-democrat independent who stands by George W Bush all the way. And I am happy NOT to be associated with the undemocratic VA GOP.
