We share many of the same concerns and opinions. My philosophy is to stay informed and vote for the person, not the party. Neither party has shown a uniform stance on personal morality, personal and professional ethics, or do I agree 100% with either party line. Around here we have the "Yellow Dog" Democrats who would vote for a dog as long as he belonged to their party; and the "Second Coming" Republicans who would not vote for Jesus himself if He came back as a democrat. I am not that attached to either political system, if we vote our conscience we are usually doing the best we can.
