I live in Deerfield, Mark Kirk’s Congressional District, and I’m writing to plead with the IL GOP to force Kirk to drop out of the Senate race. I have never voted for a third-party candidate, but this year for this race I will. Not only am I not voting for him, but I am urging everyone I know not to vote for him.
I will not vote for Mark Kirk. His votes on, for example, cap and trade, the troop surge in Iraq, abortion, and “hate crimes” legislation enrage me. And his prevaricating on both his military and teaching experiences is disgusting. In addition, his likely homosexuality and likely deceit about it are character issues for me. You managed to dump Jack Ryan for far less.
Some people argue that "for the good of the Party," Republicans have some sort of ethical obligation to vote for a prevaricator. I contend that for the good of the party, the prevaricator should bow out. I find it utterly hypocritical for Republicans to wax indignant at the idea that a Republican would refuse to support a lousy Republican candidate, as if not supporting Kirk is a moral issue of the highest order; those same indignant Republicans seem to find nothing morally problematic with Kirk’s lying, his support for the barbaric partial-birth abortion, and his support for the deeply troubling “hate crimes” legislation.
Kirk should go.
