Michael Peroutka as President. Why not?

I can’t tell you how many people have told me to not vote for Peroutka because voting for him is worthless. In fact, just last night a dear friend e-mailed me and said in essence, “he seems to be a good option but voting for him is fruitless.” The heart of the question is usually, why vote for someone who doesn’t have a chance to win? These types of questions I believe are antithetical to the Christian message and even to the Christian conscience. Has there ever been a time when you voted or have chosen something not because of its popularity but because it was the best option? Further, the concept of the lesser of two evils (pragmatism) is not a Christian position as it is Deweynian. As Gary North once stated: “The lesser of two evils usually is.” Your vote will not be wasted in Michael Peroutka!

Take for example Rhinehold’s argument concerning these voters who believe their vote is wasted:

What they fail to realize is that no vote for a candidate of your choice is ever ‘wasted’, even if it doesn’t end up electing a candidate. For example, if you live in Oklahoma where Bush is ahead in the polls 65% – 27% and you are thinking of voting for Kerry. Does that mean you are ‘throwing your vote away’ if you vote for him? Of course not. But time and time again people who are not happy with either current candidate or the way the two big parties have been treating them and putting candidates up for election are told not to vote their conscience and pull the lever against the lesser of two evils.

One further example will suffice. Suppose your father was running for mayor in a big city. The polls indicated that the top candidate had 70% of the votes and your father only had 3% of the vote. Now you knew that your father would make a better candidate. After all, he is honest and you have seen him in action every day. You know him to be a man of character and integrity. Beyond all that, he is a great Christian who upholds the Scriptures as his final authority in every area of life. Now, would you consider voting for your dad a “wasted vote?” Please reconsider your decision, I have.

Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost. –John Adams

  1. Hey buddy, I hope you realize that every vote that he gets is essentially another vote for Kerry. There is no way that Peroutka can win. And we Vantillians can argue it by means of the impossibility of the contrary :). But seriously, when you vote for him it makes this country in worse shape.

    Hi David,
    Thank you for your post. I am not a Vantillian first of all. Secondly, God is the one who puts kings in thrones and the one who takes them out( see Proverbs). Thirdly, has he not used evil kings to accomplish his purposes before? Think about it. Good point though.
