    Well there I was today, in ElDorado, KS, our county seat. Knowing my schedule next Tuesday may make voting difficult, I decided to vote early.
    I asked alot of questions as usual. Even in Kansas, early voting has gone through the roof.

    So are you a voter that votes only his party? I'm not, I tend to vote for the most prudent individual and have voted republican some years. I can say that no republican received my vote this year until I arrived at the local district attorney position (whom I know and had done a good job).

    When I punched that machine, it was like knowing the the disaster of Bush
    is finally coming to an end.

    I love the GOP candidate for DA in my county. I have met her on several occasions and carried petitions for her. I really hope voters in the city take a good look at her and her opponent. But this is going to be a very blue year.

    I've voted for Republican candidates before, but there haven't been any for years in any place I've lived that were really viable and had anything positive to say.

    I'm voting for a Democrat for the first time ever this year. I used to be a brass collar Republican and now I'm a yellow dog Democrat. Go figure. People sure can change.

    As mentioned in another thread, I voted 100% Democratic this year. I wouldn't vote for a Republican for Dog Catcher, because they support each other under the philosophy of Party First, People Second.

    You may have a decent local Republican candidate for the state legislature or for the US Congress, but once in office they'll vote the party line. And that's a line and platform that's anti-gay, anti-middle class, and pro-war.

    I voted for every GOP mayoral candidate that ever opposed Marion Barry.

    Party means nothing. I voted mostly Democrat. However, I do not care about party. I care about experience that counts. I need someone that understands government but isn't sucked in my the greed and deception there. I need a candidate that will inspire people to make a change in our government. It seems hopeless, but any change is happily received!!! icon_idea.gif No, I'm not kidding myself in only looking for morals. But it certainly helps. Like most Americans, I'm fiscally Conservative and socially Liberal. But in the end, it just doesn't work that way. We have to vote for the Candidates that will meet us in the middle. ABOVE ALL, as we've learned with Bush, I do not want a Candidate that is stubborn.

    I do believe there are some decent and fair Republicans, but most of them are whacked when it comes to the important social issues like the environment, abortion, gay rights, and helping those in our society who need help the most. While I believe President Obama will cut taxes, I personally am not opposed to paying more taxes if it makes for a better society.

    Until the GOP can start putting people ahead of money, I won't be supporting any of their candidates.

    I voted 100% straight Democratic party ticket

    I admit I haven't been studying up on my Illinois politics since I moved here except in regards to the presidential race so I just voted 100% Democrat. Of course I promptly called the most conservative members of my family and told them how I joyously tapped all the Democrat boxes on the screen without so much as looking at the names next to them.icon_biggrin.gif
