Voting Against?

If you're this person, I'm positively not mad at you.  I love that we live in a country in which we can argue, discuss, disagree, and still live freely and friendly with one another.  Feel free to send me an email or comment here.

This has shown up on Facebook...

And I'd just like to point out that voting against someone is just about the exact opposite of what the democratic republic in which we live requires of its citizens.  Even if you have a lesser-of-two-evils choice, you vote for someone.  Even if you don't agree with everything they're shilling, you vote for someone.

Voting against someone means that you'd take anyone who's not that guy.  The current president and I have significant policy, political, moral, and theological disagreements.  But voting against him?  No.

If you need proof that it's not a great idea - look at your current mideast situations.  Arab Springs (voting against) have led to a likely Islamist state in Tunisia (which was once a secular, not-anti-West country) and the likely execution of Khadaffi.

Voting against?  Not a good idea.

But that's just me thinking thoughts...
