Third Party Chess
How to Know If Your Non-Bush Vote Will Endanger Gun Rights

by Sean Oberle


This election, in trying to peel votes from RKBA-friendly third parties, the Republicans have upped the ante with its the Supreme Court, stupid, saying that an Al Gore presidency could spell disaster if he packs the court with judges unfriendly to gun rights.

The Republicans are correct. Moreover, this is an extremely tight race. Out tens of millions of votes, it could be decided by a few thousand ballots (see prediction at bottom). In fact, Id loathe an Al Gore victory. The thought of it makes my stomach churn. I pray Bush wins. Does that mean Im voting Bush?

Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe Ill vote for Libertarian Harry Browne. Ill decide on Election Day. How can I not be firmly in the Bush camp out of fear?

Its the Electoral College, stupid. Heres how it effects your third-party decision:

If you live in a safe Gore state (hes ahead more than 10 points), theres nothing you can do about your states electoral votes going to Prince Al. Decide now to vote your conscience; itll be good for you soul.

If you live in a safe Bush state (up more than 10 points), your third-party choice wont take your states electoral votes away from Dubya. Decide now to vote your conscience.

If you live in a battleground state (race within 5 points), you very well may be one of those few thousand deciding votes. Your conscience will feel better if you vote strategically. Vote Bush. Heed well its the Supreme Court, Stupid.

If you live in a state, as I do, somewhere in between (6-10 point race), wait until Election Day to decide. A lot can change in a week. Dubya might need ya.


My prediction: Bush will win the Electoral College 290-248. Hell also win the popular vote by at least by 500,000, perhaps breaking 2 million. But the race will be decided by just a few thousand votes in one or two states thus my prediction will fall if gun rights activist fail to vote for him in battleground states. 

Dont let make me look bad. My reputation is in your hands.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero (42B.C)
