Home Letters To The Editor Vote Republican - 3rd party candidates are spoilers

That said, I absolutely will vote Republican.   A vote for anyone other than a Republican is a vote for the Democrat Party.  Those of a more conservative ideological mindset, may be tempted to back the Independent, Libertarian or other, perceived conservative candidate.  

While it may make one feel good, third party candidates historically lose, siphoning off critical votes from the candidate closest to the ideology of the third party and guaranteeing a win for the other side.   

Democrat supporters are not above quietly financing third parties as a strategy to defeat Republicans. (It happened here in Virginia last year!)

Unless you want to see unbridled, continued abuse of executive power – and Eric Holder as our next Supreme Court Justice.
