► I vote Democrat because I think it's better to pay billions of dollars to people who hate us rather than drill for our own oil, because it might upset some endangered beetle or gopher.
► I vote Democrat because I believe it is okay if liberal activist judges rewrite the Constitution to suit some fringe kooks, who would otherwise never get their agenda past the voters.
► I vote Democrat because I believe that corporate America should not be allowed to make profits for themselves or their shareholders. They need to break even and give the rest to the federal government for redistribution.
► I vote Democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted, so long as we keep all of the murderers on death row alive.
► I vote Democrat because I believe it's okay if my Nobel Peace Prize winning President uses drones to assassinate people, as long as we don't use torture.
► I vote Democrat because I believe people, who can't accurately tell us if it will rain on Friday, can predict the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Chevy Volt.
► I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is not as important as preventing people from being offended.
► I vote Democrat because I believe the oil companies' profit of 3% on a gallon of gas is obscene, but the federal government taxing that same gallon of gas at 15%isn't obscene.

► I vote Democrat because I believe a moment of silent prayer at the beginning of the school day constitutes government indoctrination and an intrusion on parental authority ..... but sex education, condom distribution and multiculturalism are all values-neutral.
► I vote Democrat because I agonize over threats to the natural environment from CO2, acid rain and toxic waste ..... but I am totally oblivious of the threats to our social environment from pornography, promiscuity and family dissolution.
► I vote Democrat because I believe lazy, uneducated stoners should have just as big a say in running our country as entrepreneurs who risk everything and work 70 hours per week.
► I vote Democrat because I don't like guns ..... so no one else should be allowed to own one.
► I vote Democrat because I see absolutely no correlation between welfare and the rise of illegitimacy.
► I vote Democrat because I see absolutely no correlation between judicial leniency and surging crime rates.
► I vote Democrat because I believe marriage is obsolete, except for homosexuals.
► I vote Democrat because I think AIDS is spread by insufficient funding.
► I vote Democrat because I think "fairness" is far more important than freedom.
► I vote Democrat because I think an "equal outcome" is far more important than equal opportunity.
And lastly, I vote Democrat because I'm convinced that government programs are the solution to the human condition, NOT freedom....

charlie must tune in to all the right wing television and radio programs and take notes. I guess it keeps him busy and out of trouble, though.
Sorry

Playing party games always has losers. What we need is less control and more personal responsibility. Build your own pool if you want to swim and stop using tax payer money to keep people poor.

I paid income taxes at a rate of 36% to 42% for years and never earned $100,000 any year. And I feel more cheated by the millionaires who are paying less than 15% tax than the people working for minimum wage and making ends meet with help from entitlements.

You are not very astute to allow the system to control you. Perhaps reading up on the tax laws will be profitable to you. The purpose of tax laws is to control the citizen behavior and reward them for doing what the government wants them to do. Then those with the most money can buy the government to make laws giving incentives to those that have the money.

As long as people want to control the culture and behavior of others we are going to take advantage of the poorly educated that the public schools turn out.

Well excuse me for earning an honest living, Own. I never was able to accumulate enough wealth to invest in anything worthwhile because I paid my bills and my taxes. I'm grateful that I was able to live comfortably and support my family and accumulate no debt. A great many people have worked as hard all their lives and find themselves continuing to struggle paying old debts.

And if I must decide between 2 candidates whose qualifications and ethics seem equal I will likely vote for the Democrat. I've seen all the phony Republican conservatism I wish to see for a while.

With your tax rate and no investing you were living way beyond your safe means. You could live on half of what you made but you had to have a new car when a used one would have done fine. You were taught to keep up with the Jones.

You do not only have a choose of 2 you can write in a vote for the best person that did not gather election campaign money. This is a democratic republic and you can vote for anyone not just those that get on the ballot.

Was this thread started purely to antagonize or what? What is the purpose? Pure hatefulness, that's all. Some people love it.

Separate your feeling from fact. Information is never a problem.
