I voted in the primary today. I voted Republican, but not for McCain. Yes, I'll probably vote for him in November, because he is a better choice than Clinton or Obama, but he doesn't represent me. So for the primary, since I had to choose a party to be identified with, I chose Republican. But I didn't choose McCain. I was very pleased to discover that all the original candidates were still on the ballot. I was even more pleased to note that Alan Keyes was a candidate at one time. He apparently dropped out very early, but he is someone I would not be ashamed to support. Some may say that I wasted my vote. But my reasoning is that I CAN'T support any of the Democrats, and there are several things about the Republican "nominee apparent" that I strongly disagree with (immigration, most of all). Hopefully, Senator McCain will get the message if enough conservative Americans don't support him in the lead up to the convention.
