  • How do you normally vote?

    I had originally planned on going into DC to watch the protest and grab some interesting photos. Unfortunately some things came up and I couldn't make it. In looking through some of the shots others took though, I'm angry at myself for not attending.

    To those out there trying to get your points across... this is not the best way to do it. Instead, you look like a bunch of ignorant rednecks.

    You can view pictures by here.

    In anycase, it got me thinking... I wonder how my fellow popo feel about this and about politics in general. I know that some of the articles posted on here often allow us to post our two cents about politicians or legislation, but I wanted to get general poll to see which way people on here normally lean/vote.

    So.... please take a moment and take the poll and post your opinions as to why you feel this way...

    And I've blocked it so that your username does not show how you vote on the poll, incase your worried about getting yelled at.

    Thanks.

    I'm an issue voter, not really a party-line voter. Although I would have to say the Libertarian party most closely aligns with most of the issues I hold dear, although for the most part if it is a choice between Republcians and Democrats with no other alternative I will favor the Democrats.

      Conservative, Traditionalist, Constitutionalist. I will vote for whomever I think is in line with these issues. It just so happens that usually mean Republican because the Independent Party just can't compete with the 2 big boys......yet.

        With my hands...In the past election they gave me sheet w/ all the candidates name and a bubble next to their name....I had to circle the bubble next to the candidate that I want to vote for...


        Middle, I look at the incumbent and see what he or she has done, if they have done a good job then I'd vote for the incumbent, if not then I vote for the other person; however I'll also vote for the lesser of the 2 evils of the people running all suck...To me party doesn't matter...

          You would've loved going and getting a bomb threat too...

          I'm sort of an issue supporter, because I can't vote yet, but most of the issues I care about are dealt with in the republican party... though they haven't been too good lately..

            I have always been a conservative voter. I am a rebuplican, down to the core. I have always felt my conservative views leaned more towards a republican state of mind. No, I don't agree with everything my party has commentated; more the less, I can't always find myself agreeing on issues anyone in congress has to offer. However, my conservative views has kept me with the republican party. I am against socialism, communism and government run anything. I do not agree wth government run healthcare, govrnment run banks etc. I agree with free choice, free speech, right to bear arms, etc. So, I vote republican, all the time. (PS I also enjoy watching Glenn Beck everyday, he is truly a powerful voice for conservatives)

                  I've always voted a straight Republican ticket, ever since I turned 18. Republicans are the candidates who most closely match my values and who actually have a chance of winning. If some third-party candidates actually could get more than a single digit percentage of the vote, I might vote for them.

                  I did vote for Pat Buchanan, whatever party he was with. I wish he'd run again, because no matter what party he runs under, he has my support.

                        I vote straight Republican but picked the first option because of primaries, I'll pick the more conservative one. I may on occasion agree on a particular issue with a Democrat but it takes a political party to make things happen and Republicans are an endangered species out here. Total Democrat control is ruining this state and it doesn't look like it's going well nationally either.

                          Same here. I have significant issues with the current Republican party who until recently seem to have sold their conservative backbone down the river. Give me a solid Reagan or Gingrich style conservatism any day.

                              Let me know when Barney Frank runs for the Presidency.

                              Then you will see me cast a vote for a President. Until then, most candidates are too far right or too far left for my liking. John McCain almost had me until he picked Sarah Palin. If McCain kicked the bucket I didn't want that nut anywhere near the Presidency.
