In the Voting Booth, Nobody Know’s You’re a Democrat

November 5, 2012

If you’re planning on voting for Mitt Romney, this post is not written for you. It’s written for every would-be Obama voter.

There’s a great article in the Jewish Journal by David Mamet, entitled, “A Note to a Stiff-Necked People“. In it, Mamet asks a series of questions that liberal Jewish parents should be prepared to answer for their children’s sake as they vote for Obama tomorrow. It applies just as well to liberal non-Jewish parents, as well as to any thoughtful voter who is considering casting a ballot for Obama tomorrow. I strongly recomment that you read the entire article, but his closing point is this perfect gem:

“Please remember that we have the secret ballot and, should you, on reflection, vote in secret for a candidate you would not endorse in public, you will not be alone.”

If you’re planning on voting for Obama because you voted for him in 2008, even if you’re not thrilled with his performance, but think maybe another four years will help (it won’t); if you’re voting for him simply because you always vote for the Democrat on the ticket; if you’re voting for him because all your friends are; please stop and think. If you have any hesitation, any doubts at all, you have the opportunity to cast your vote for the man who advocates voting for love of country rather than voting for revenge. And if anybody asks who you voted for, it’s nobody’s business but yours.

You will not be alone, I guarantee it.
