I no longer vote for the the lesser of two evils. I’ll not vote in a particular race before I vote for a candidate that I can’t support.
The lesser of two evils is another made up term used by third party candidates (and their voters) that DO NOT have a chance at being elected to attempt to sway people into voting for them. I never vote for the lessor of 2 evils. I vote for the best person that actually has a chance of representing me. The senate race is between 2 and ony 2 people. Warnock and Walker. Walker was not by first choice but is my best choice for the direction I would like the country to go in. The LP party is no better than the Democrat party. Almost everything the LP stands for aligns closely with the Democrats. You ar better off just owning up to it and voting for the Democrat.

What are you talking about? A lesser of two evils is by definition a binary choice. How the heck is that “made up by third party candidates” that make it no longer a binary choice in the first place? That’s not even contorted word math, that’s a basic fail to grasp definitions.

If I go somewhere wanting a steak but I keep voting for chicken because it’s winning in a waitress’s opinion, you’d certainly have some insight as to why I never end up getting steak…

I work in software and IT. I'm used to deciding based on which option sucks less. Why should politics be any different.

I am trying to figure out if you don't know the Libertarian platform or you don't know the Democrat platform, or maybe you don't know either one.

Democrat Platform

Item 1 is continuing government benefits (covid protections, like government picking up 100% of the tab for COBRA Insurance, freezing rent increases and evictions, and other government interference in the market)

Item 2 is fairness in the economy, something or another about clean energy investments creating jobs, raising the minimum wage, measures to favor unions, some unspecified goal of racial equity in wages, more government mandated family leave, government money for child care, increasing taxes (seriously, this is touted as beneficial to workers), and so on . . .

Item 3 is universal healthcare . . .

Item 4 is criminal justice reform, including gun control . . .

Do I even need to go on? The Libertarian Party platform is pretty much the exact opposite of everything on the Democratic Party platform.

"We oppose all laws at any level of government restricting, registering, or monitoring the ownership, manufacture, or transfer of firearms, ammunition, or firearm accessories."

Pretty clear, yes?

How To Lie with Statistics:
Run model 40K times. Pick the 100 outcomes that show what you want. Call those "likely" outcomes.
That's without even going into what inputs and math each model uses. ARRRGH.

I actually do know both the Democratic and the Libertarian parties. I was a Democrat before I was a Libertarian.before now a Republican. There is NOT much different between the DP and the LP. How about Open borders, support for illegals voting, removing criminal penalties for for drug uses and distribution, abortion (yes abortion is part of the LP) mixed in with the limited government interfering with personal lives.

You can claim you are against abortion but supporting either the Democratic or Libertarian party tells me otherwise. There are other platform equals between the two as well.

When an LP actually makes it into office they actually claim independent, sit with the Democrats and vote with the Democrats. The gun claims are the same as the RP but never seemed to be truly supported.

"The LP runs one of the best cons in politics."

“First of all, any law or bill passed that will effect anyone’s Second Amendment – I’m not going to stand for and I won’t support,” Walker stated. “And to hear Sen. Warnock talk about supporting law enforcement – it’s sad… He’s empowered criminals to think they’re better than the police…To hear him talk about that is a disgrace.”​
Walker’s matter-of-factness earned praise from Atlanta media, usually supportive of gun control. Atlanta Journal Constitution political columnist Patricia Murphy said Walker was “prepared, aggressive and direct.”​
A Record to Run From
Sen. Warnock attempted to spin his record on gun rights. He claimed support for law enforcement, hoping Georgia voters forgot that he called police officers gangsters, thugs, bullies and a threat to children during his campaign two years ago.​
Prior to his election to the Senate, Sen. Warnock – also a Reverend – mocked Georgia churchgoers and decried Georgia lawmakers for passing the Safe Carry Protection Act.​
“Somebody decided that they had a bright idea to pass a piece of legislation that will allow for guns and concealed weapons to be carried in churches,” he said.​
Sen. Warnock added that places of worship were “the last place” for firearms and gun owners who carry in church are “crazy people.” Shortly after, Jack Wilson, a concealed carry permit holder and volunteer security guard used his concealed firearm to stop a murderer from inflicting unthinkable violence on fellow churchgoers during a religious service at the West Freeway Church of Christ, in White Settlement, Texas.​

I'll be voting for Walker over socialist anti-gun Biden lover POS that is on the democratic ballot.

Warnock can rot away.

We are seeing the polls start to show the true numbers nationwide as well as in this race. Why? Because pollster's accuracy is determined by the LAST poll published before the election. They are shoring up their numbers so we will continue to fall for their lying propaganda next year. Up until now, they have been publishing numbers that were cooked to help Democrats. Now, they are fighting for legitimacy so they can continue to push their garbage during the runup to the next election. Herschel is going to win and win above the margin of fraud or runoff. In fact, I predict that all four "tight" Senate races break strongly to the GOP and they have a 54-46 Upper chamber, getting them past the need for the three RINO squishes. (Romney, Collins, Murkowski).

I say Hershel Walker has already won.

Willy Warnock has done nothing for the citizens of GA, He is a puppet for Biden and votes with whatever Biden tells him to vote.
Warnock is a socialist.
Warnock is anti-gun. He wants your guns.
He does not care about our inflation
He does not care about our crime rate.

Warnock is an anti-American idiot.

Humor? Irony? Hypocritical rant? Possible accurate prediction?
Either or or nothing more, I found this to be interesting considering the source(s).
