My wife and I cast our votes Saturday morning, voting for life, and necessarily, for the removal of the sitting president. I cannot accept any rationale in support either of voting for O, nor voting for a 3rd party candidate. The former is ruled out by Church teaching, as very clearly explained in many messages, notably those from Card. Burke, and Apb. Chaput. The latter is ruled out by the historical reality that votes for a third party tend to favor the incumbent. To me, any vote which could favor leaving O in for a second term would be a failure of my duties as a Catholic citizen.
