There´s nothing undemocratic
about strategic voting

Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/2/2014 5:35:24 AM

Mississippi sore loser Chris McDaniel and his supporters wouldn´t like me too much. For many years in the state where I was born, I voted in primaries for people I didn´t like, didn´t agree with and had no intention of voting for later -- secure in the thought I was doing my best in a bad situation I had no part in bringing about. Yes, years before Operation Chaos occurred to Rush Limbaugh, I had been voting strategically in New York. Here´s how it all came about. Back in the Stone Age when I began voting, I was a genuine

Comments:
As Emery says, Limbaugh pushed it in 2008 and his fans saw nothing wrong with the tactic.

This cracks me up. This poor fool is completely ignoring the illegal votes by her favored democrats.
Free clue, Noemie: It is illegal to vote in the Democrat primary, then vote in a Republican run-off.

Journalists are truly stupid people.

´Strategic voting´ is not the same thing as ´vote buying´. And if insulting and libeling half of their voters is the Republican Party´s idea of strategy, they might want to rethink that plan.

Strategic voting? Back in the old days we had another word for it. We called it cheating.
The fact that the rinos feel the need to defend their behavior is evidence enough that they knew it was wrong. For this they deserve to lose and I hope they do.
I guess a politician will do what he has to if he cant win on his ideas or his record.
Our rinos better not complain about the democrats cheating. They are now in the moral septic tank with their good friends across the aisle.

Dishonest column - what happened in Mississippi (and Ms. Emery knows it) was more than Democrats innocently crossing over to vote in a Republican primary (of course, we´re finding out that many Democrats voted in both primaries - which is a no-no). And Mr. McDaniel is not an "Akin in waiting", what a dishonest thing for her to say. The fact is that Cochran´s people, along with helpers from the Establishment, they slashed and trashed the Tea Party and, with robo calls and flyers, told the voters in the predominately black districts that the Tea Party would take everything they have away from them. Another lie.

It has to be proven whether or not Cochran´s people paid people to vote for him.

And Haley Barbour wants his nephew to take Cochran´s seat when it is decided it is time for him to leave.

If the Cochran camp appealed to crossover voters on the basis of his spending and bringing home the bacon plus support of President Obama, I would have no problem with this strategy in a state with an open primary.

However, using race against the party you supposedly represent is vile and particularly the people guided by our Founding Documents which intended to not create a Washington Centric government.

On top of that, they decided to treat Blacks as racists instead of voters in their appeal just as liberals treat women as "ovary centered" instead of intellectually capable individuals. This is foul stuff. I am appalled that I didn´t see this challenged on the Sunday shows but those there got the result they desired and couldn´t see any of this.

This only strengthens my resolve against the "Ruling Class".

There is something wrong with a party establishment using votes from the opposition to disenfranchise the MAJORITY of its own voters. There is something wrong with passing out money to get people to vote. There is something wrong with people voting twice.

What a person does with its own vote is their own business.

First of all some people DID illegally vote in democrat and republican primaries which is illegal.

Secondly, what is wrong is that if you have to go to people of believe the opposite of what your party stands for then maybe you not the person to represent your party.

Big difference between an individual making an informed choice to vote strategically and the shameful shenanigans of throwing the race card down on the table to encourage what could be illegal votes against someone from your own party. Apples and oranges. And intellectually lazy and dishonest to say they´re the same.

The writer´s argument is undermined in the first few paragraphs: " I voted in primaries for people I didn´t like, didn´t agree with and had no intention of voting for later". The implication being that the Democrats voting for Cochran have no intention of carrying him across the finish line in November. So, if the Democrats will not continue supporting him and he couldn´t win with Republican votes alone in the Primary, how is he going to win in November? The answer is he will not but it is the height of Stupidity and Arrogance to think that Republicans will now have no other choice to vote for him. This is the GOP today, Stupid and Arrogant. This writer represents these qualities clearly and the reference to the Founder´s wishing to undermine parties is a clear example of ignorance to add to the list.

Well, OP, if you can show where Limbaugh advocated that people vote in two primaries, you would be partially correct. Otherwise, your point completely falls down.

Regardless, it would have been different if the Dems had advocated the disruption of the GOP primary. Instead, it was the GOP Establishment (your heroes) that corrupted the primary.

Why can´t the cheerleaders just admit their heroes screwed this one up?

If McDaniel is unsuccessful in overturning the election, then MS. conservatives should vote for the "D" in November. This would be purely and simply an exercise in revenge and behavior modification at the same time. If the establishment and its acolytes on this site object, too bad and be thankful that this suggestion only applies to the immediate insult, and not through the nation at large. At least, not yet.

I have no problem with following the law and winning with Dem votes. That´s not the issue. The issue is the tactics used to acquire those votes and the betrayal and slandering of Cochran´s own party. Tea Partiers were portrayed as segregationists. Voters were bought off just so a bunch of K Street thieves could have the Senator they bought and paid for back. At some point ethics and character have to count. In a race between Cochran and Childers I´d vote Childers.

Well Noemie, then you are part of the problem. This trick was invented for the very purpose that you applaud, which is to thwart the interests of those in a political party. It is used as a tool to interrupt the wishes of one party or the other. If you were interested in a true vote of the feelings of those in a particular state, you wouldn´t like this at all. The time to finally chose is in the final election. This is why we dislike the behavior of both political parties. I applaud Chris McDaniel to attempt to have the truth come out about the horrible practice of buying votes and stuffing the ballot boxes with fraudulent absentee ballots. Enough is enough giving in to these political felons.

Four of the five inmates who escaped from a California county jail have been recaptured, authorities said. Madera County sheriff´s spokeswoman Erica Stuart said late Saturday that the escapees had been recaptured, but did not immediately provide further details of their arrests. Stuart identified 29-year-old Roel Soliz of Chowchilla, Calif. as the inmate still at large. The other four inmates were identified at the time of the escape as Juan Lopez, 33; Abel Ramos, 25; Ricardo Cendejas, 19; and Jorge Lopez-Diaz, 26.

Senate Republicans are planning aggressive action to intensify oversight of the Obama administration and move conservative legislation long stymied by the Democrats if they win control of the upper chamber in the midterm elections. Republican leaders are promising a complete makeover of the chamber that goes beyond changes in legislative priorities, according to knowledgeable GOP sources. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, expected to become the next majority leader as long as he wins re-election on Nov. 4, plans to return power to the committees and promote a freewheeling debate process that allows members to shape legislation through a vigorous

The subject line reads, “Dear Friends: More Speech, Not Hate Speech.” The email reveals that by “hate speech,” the writers mean what the Left usually means when they use that term: “opinions we don’t agree with.” Thirty-two student organizations signed the email under the leadership of Yale’s Muslim Student Association (MSA).

EDINBURGH, Scotland - Scottish voters have resoundingly rejected independence, deciding to remain part of the United Kingdom after a historic referendum that shook the country to its core. The decision prevented the rupture of a 307-year union with England, bringing a huge sigh of relief to Britain´s political establishment, including Prime Minister David Cameron, who faced calls for his resignation if Scotland had broken away. The vote on Thursday - 55 percent against independence to 45 percent in favor - saw an unprecedented turnout of just under 85 percent.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”
