    I understand why Angie and many other celebrities who are in the top income bracket may find the Republican positions on taxes and other issues appealing. I vote Republican because I feel that I personally benefit more from their policies than Democratic ones, and I respect other people's right to vote for a candidate, Republican or Democrat, whose platform they feel is most beneficial to them. Voting based on what you believe and what you support is not stupid, and I also don't think it's stupid to have beliefs that other people may not necessarily agree with.
    Yep, well said.

    I hear ya. I was born/raised old school Dem, while living in a HIGHLY radical/left wing area. As I've aged I've pretty much turned out to be a social liberal with fiscally conservative leanings and a strong dose of practical common sense. Being sensible, I figure a politician who can be trusted is as hard to find as a healthy Dodo bird; it stands to reason that anyone who wants power badly enough to fight so hard for it probably isn't trustworthy.

    I don't much like any of the candidates. I so dearly wish I felt differently, honest. Oh well, at least I may get my mind blown a bit by seeing a NON white male in office. That would be quite a moment, in and of itself.

    I think you and SouthernBelle have expressed yourselves beautifully here. Ideally, I do support Harmon feeling like she should be able to express her views too, without fear of being ridiculed or lynched . As should we all.

    Heh heh, I forgot about Tom Selleck. I've never heard a bad thing about him and he turned out to be a very likeable character actor, so I guess he gives conservatives a bit of a better name, huh.
