I'd like every single teavangelical republican to know that my vote cannot be bought!! Even if I were one of you (but thank God I'm not!), no matter how much was spent to sway me to believe the most dangerous and outlandish garbage being spewed out by your candidates, I would NEVER vote for any candidate who only knows how to spin, lie and spread fear as much as your teavangelical repub clowns. My biggest joy is that with my one vote, I will cancel out one of yours! OBAMA 11/6/2012.
