What's the matter folks, afraid to go on record?
I can't vote. I believe that politicians of both stripes are mainly interested in keeping their jobs, lining their pockets, and doing what is best for them. I'm not convinced that enough of them truly think about we the people.
But you still vote in elections right? Which means you ultimately have to choose the best option from an albeit not-so-worthy list of candidates. So why not apply the same thinking here and pick the one you believe is the best among the available choices?
I didn't realize you were talking about politicians.
I wasn't actually.
I tend to roll with Libertarian or Independent candidates these days. Though I have voted for Democrats and Republicans in the past. And I will probably continue the trend in the future. Party is less important to me than the candidate. Always has been, always will be.
Politicians aside, what about regular people that happen to be registered as reps or dems? That's actually what I meant. But you cleverly got me all discombobulated, ya rat fink!
You are right, Ravi, the question was about the two parties. I did not ignore that. Sadly, however, I believe that the politicians are the party. They are the face of their party and they push their party's agenda. I find it difficult to seperate the two.
Well except for the end of timer fundies that bush has allied himself with.. Maybe bush does want to destroy the world. That however would be an exception to the vast majority of republicans... if, that is, there are actually any left that havent switched to the libertarian side of life..
