    I have yet to decide. I'm moderate, just don't really know towards which side i lean towards more.

    I don't think someone should vote for someone just because they follow that party. They should look at both canidates and pick which one they think will preform better. Just my thought.
    If you ever need a hug, just ask.

    same here, but a lot of voters go along party lines. some voters do 'clothespin votes', others look at the candidates and their ideology, others vote party lines. just the way it is, and probably won't change.

    Here in the Netherlands people vote for a political party. I usually vote for the social-democrats or socialists. Social-democrats and christian-democrats won last elections, also the socialists had a good part.

    The thing about campaigns is that candidates don't really intend to/can't keep their promises. A Democratic candidate might try to appeal to the rural vote by showing that they don't hate guns, and a Republican candidate might try to show suburban voters that they're not bent on turning the United States into a "new Jerusalem." When it comes down to voting on actual legislation, the representatives will be made to feel the "benefits" (compromising on legislation with other party members, wanting to get some of the party's campaign funding money, possible inexperience or unfamiliarity with the issue, etc.) of voting with the rest of the party.

    In short, I'll look at what the candidate says and promises, but I'll also consider the general ideology and positions held by the candidate's party. I'm independent, but I'd be much more likely to vote for a Democrat than for a Republican, and I wouldn't mind voting for a third party, like the Green Party, on minor elected offices and races that aren't close. If the Democratic Party fails to find a decent presidential candidate for 2004, I might vote for a third party out of disgust.

    im not trying to be offensive here, but your one of the few people i know of that actually thinks about this stuff in a logical way, why do you tend to go for the democrats? like you said they all change and sometimes its a lesser of 2 evils deal but what tends to make the democrats a better choice?

    maybe a real discussion here would work out.

    All, and they should as well.


    Personally, I tend to lean democratic because they are more for the good of the people (all the people).

    On the other hand, the Republicans tend to be more for the individual and having one make their own way in life.
