A Third-Party Vote Is a Vote for Democrats

Prominent on the long list of dirty tricks Democrats have been resorting to in an attempt to avoid taking their medicine on November 2 is backing third party spoilers:

Seeking any advantage in their effort to retain control of Congress, Democrats are working behind the scenes in a number of tight races to bolster long-shot third-party candidates who have platforms at odds with the Democratic agenda but hold the promise of siphoning Republican votes.

Like so many Democrat initiatives, this may blow up in the moonbats’ faces:

The efforts are taking place across the country with varying degrees of stealth. And in many cases, they seem to hold as much risk as potential reward for Democrats, prompting accusations of hypocrisy and dirty tricks from Republicans and the third-party movements that are on the receiving end of the unlikely, and sometimes unwelcome, support.

An example of this underhanded strategy:

In California, Republicans have received recorded phone calls from a professed but unidentified “registered Republican” who says she is voting for the American Independent Party’s candidate for a House seat, Bill Lussenheide, not for the incumbent Republican, Mary Bono Mack.

The caller says she is voting that way because “it’s time we show Washington what a true conservative looks like.”

The recording was openly paid for by the Democratic candidate for the seat, Mayor Steve Pougnet of Palm Springs.

No one who wants to support a “true conservative” should vote for a Democrat. Yet that is exactly what Lussenheide voters would be doing, or the Party of Carter wouldn’t spend money on this.

The Tea Party is being exploited by the very conniving statists it exists to oppose:

Nevada is one of several states, including Florida, where “Tea Party” political committees have appeared on ballot lines without the knowledge or support of leading Tea Party activists, who have generally chosen not to support third-party candidacies. In most of those cases, local bloggers, reporters and lawyers have traced connections to local Democrats, drawing lawsuits, complaints and, in a couple of cases, admissions of involvement.

The primaries were the time to make your statement regarding which candidates should be on the ballot. Even if you don’t like the way the primaries turned out in a particular race, the fact remains that the GOP is the only party in a position to put up resistance to oligarchical collectivism. Any other vote is a vote for tyranny.
