    Default How do you Vote?

    Pretty simple question. I'm sure your bunch of crap on and although we really know the answer to have of the people in here, I'm curious to see just how people pigeonhole themselves.

    I gave one choice just to keep it simple.

    For me the perfect candidate would be fiscally conservative as their first responsibility is to conserve and manage tax dollars. Government growth is out of control as governments are spending far more than they could possibly take in today. Such an unsustainable pattern must be broken and reversed!

    That being said, inasmuch as both marriage and right to life are under attack, I also seek morally conservative candidates.

    Finding a candidate who actually does what he promises ranks high on the list since liars seem to find their way into legislative and especially executive seats all too often.

    In short, I vote for candidates, based upon character and platform over party and always have.
    The best things in life aren't things!

    I vote for whom I think will do the best job. What party the cadidate belongs to holds little relevance for me.

    I gave you ten choices. Pick something close or do as The Doctor did and spell out your core beliefs.

    Fiscally conservative. Otherwise libertarian. Whoever can guarantee complete personal freedom without trying to create a nanny state. Which would probably translate on this poll to socially liberal. But voted fiscally conservative since at the moment that's more important.

    Look how their last 2 votes turned out!

    "On every question of construction (of the Constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invent against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed."

    To be honest, I chose "Republican" because up until the 2008-2010 election cycle, I didn't really have a good grasp on (and never really thought about) the difference between a Republican and a Fiscal Conservative.

    Fiscal conservative. Libertarian.

    I vote for the candidate that best represents my political views and beliefs.

    I vote for the most libertarian candidate that has a chance. Unfortunatly that usually means I have to hold my nose and vote Republican, although there have been instances where I have voted for the Libertarian Party candidate...
    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
