I totally agree with what both of you say, especially with cw4cams' point about not throwing your vote away. Too many throw a fit if their nominee is not chosen and, quite literally, do throw their vote away by not even voting. A vote for someone that you only half agree with is much better that not voting and electing someone you totally disagree with.
Their needs to be some clarification on Paul though.
Ron Paul used to be a doctor and lived only a couple of hundred yards(as in meters) away from me. He was my towns doctor. I rode the bus with his kids. I swam in his pool. I know things about him. He is not someone that you want to be your doctor or your president. He ran from one to the other because of complaints about him being the first. He almost went broke, in our town, because noone liked him. He is just not someone that I trust.
