The Vote

This pretty much sums up why I'll be voting Republican in the November election, despite my myriad frustrations with the current majority party. Not that my vote will really matter--as a conservatarian living in Portland, I can usually be fairly certain my candidates won't win, and my ballot measures won't pass (or, even more likely, measures I don't want to pass will easily sail through to become law, creating ever deeper levels of Alliance-type bureaucracy.) However, I refuse to be one of those people who doesn't bother to vote because they're not likely to be on the winning side. In some things it really is the principle that matters. I wish the Republicans in Congress would remember that.
