GOP vs. Libertarian
#1
With the elections tomorrow I had a question regarding whom I should vote for in a couple local (MI) races. 

I am libertarian in virtually all ways, but unfortunately many (most) libertarians that run are also pro-abortion. 

So, am I obligated to vote for the GOP candidate because they claim to be pro-life (even though they have done little/nothing to stop abortion so far) or is it OK to vote libertarian?

Always remember their are pro life in GOP  however their are RINOs who are really not pro life. The socialist  marxs DEMOCRATES are the PARTY OF DEATH. Any pro life DEMS are very small percentage. sorry to said this is not the party of JFK.

You are so very not obligated to vote for Republicans.  My wish is that everyone votes for a 3rd party, preferably Libertarians or any Constitution-supporting party out there.

The GOP doesn't care about abortion, and even if they did, they'd likely deal with it in the wrong way (abortion should be matters for the individual States, like other homicides).  Besides which, there are many pro-life Libertarians and small-L libertarians out there. Ron Paul is one, as an example.  Further, adult lives are also important, and risking our fighting men's lives by invading countries that've done nothing to us is also sinful. In addition to life itself are matters pertaining to quality of life, and the Republicans don't care about American culture or sovereignty any more than the Democrats do.  They're just as satisfied as Dems with allowing corporations to outsource, allowing unlimited immigration, and all that jazz.

The Two Big Parties are run by the same people. They both need to go. We need a major upheaval at the polls (assuming they count the votes at all, of course); having yet Another Republican or yet Another Democrat will be tantamount to staying in the same rut we've been in all through the 20th century. Enough is enough.

Thank you.  This is pretty much exactly how I feel (and how I've voted for some time).  As I continue to take my faith more and more seriously, however, I wanted to confirm I wasn't wrong in this. 

I also think that long term, the libertarians will do more to stop abortion than the GOP ever will. Pro-Life fits right in their platform (only laws to protect the innocent).  Many of the hard core Libertarians just haven't realized that, yet because they don't seem to have abortion as a primary issue at this point. 

I think voting Libertarian on local/state elections is powerful as you actually have a chance at getting a few of them in, and they can then begin to try to move up the ranks over time.  It is a long journey though.

Thanks again

Meanwhile, in the land where corruption reigns (Illinois) the race is between two pro abortion candidates. The Republican doesn't even pretend to be pro life, while the libertarian in the race is openly pro life.  Crazy! Not that I am big fan of the GOP anyway, but it is quite a scary prospect that the two major choices are between Moloch and Mammon.

You have to weigh the balance. You should vote for the person who is the best qualified for the job. The issue of the right to life is very important in the questions of who is qualified to lead us. However it is not the only issue. Are the libertarian positions of the libertarian candidates that you are considering so overwhelmingly right in respect to what the other candidates are proposing that you would be willing to vote for that person?
