    Which of the following is the most important to you, when it comes to the governance of this Republic?

    1) Your political party team regaining power, or staying in power

    2) Voting all the incumbents out of office, even if you believe your elected has done his or her elected job.

    3) As long as your taxes don't go up, you don't care what the employees in Washington do.

    4) You don't care because you are tired of fighting it year after year.

    5) The Constitution being strictly adhered to no matter the circumstance. Any current government program that you don't believe is congruent with the Constitution, should be done away with.

    6) You used to be true blue partisan, but this last election opened up your eyes. You are re-evaluating your beliefs and no longer interested in being a political party cheerleader.

    I don't think #5 is going to happen and I hate it.

    I'm probably a mix of #1,#4 and #6 these days. I'm not sure where I fit anymore.

    The people are not for the constitution the constitution is for the people.

    None of the above.

    I want to see the US succeed and prosper as a democratic republic designed to serve the people and their persuit of happiness.

    pretty superficial concerns...

    except your number 5... but given that 9 justices can't agree on what the constitution means, it's the height of arrogance if anyone thinks that THEY are the arbiter of what is constitutional.

    All of the choices are .... for the lack of better expression ... retarded. As well as typically and exclusively American (no, I'm not equating retarded with American here, even though it might seem that way, mkay.) So unfortunately, I can't make a choice. Voting is not a sport - cheering for some stupid-ass team despite their performance. Voting is an exercise in intelligence, protecting one's self-interest, and working towards greater-good. When one's considering a candidate, they should be as color-blind as when recruiting a new employee and look only at their track-record and agenda.

    Taxes... I wish (some) Americans would finally realize that taxes = roads, hospitals, clean air, clean water, education, etc... therefore, taxes are not the government robbing you, but actually the government making life for you possible. I mean, really... when will you get over this exaggerated tax-phobia?

    If you see yourself as a mix of #1, #4, and #6, that means you are politically constipated. I hope you find relief soon.
