[219] Not Voting

I am tired of hearing how unpatriotic it is not to vote.  Citizens have a right to vote—precious as it is–but not an obligation to vote.

In some cases, Christians have no good candidate to support.  The voter may not be able—in good conscience—to vote for a pro-choice zealot, while at the same time, finding the positions of that candidate’s opponent anathema.

So what do you do?  You don’t vote.  When not voting is a conscious choice, carefully considered, it may be more patriotic than picking the lesser of two miscreants. DC
