That depends on what you see in the party and what do you hold on to as values.
Do you value family? Do you value life?
I believe these are two factors to start with.

You sir are out of your mind

They both suck, the entire political party system sucks. IMO there should be no parties. Only individuals who run on their own merits and only serve for one term. Get rid of the closed doors BJ'ers and reach arounds and special favors. Don't kid youself, R or D they are all exactly the same, they are about their own self preservation and could give a flying shit about the country or the constituents.

This was a serious question wasn't it?

The way the system has gone does suck and yes they do look out for their own self preservation. It was not intened to be this way.
Term limits for all who serve this counrty in office. Two years to serve then get back to work and go home to your family.
I do believe that the are the better of the two

If you value your jeep, then Republican is the lesser of two evils by far. Democrats have become pawns of the environmental wackos who believe that all ORV use is inherently damaging and should be stopped.

maybe because it is true...I'm doing what I can to stop thrill craft from being operated on public lands....nobody should be allowed on public lands because of the damage it causes. private land should be off limits too because of the damage it causes to the land owners land

Both partys lie to the faces of the voters and we still love them. They are equally slimy and dishonest. They simply lie about doing different things. That being said the Repubs tell the lies I wanna hear, IMO.

I don't know why so many people are so lazy that they can't go out and look up other candidates that are running independent of the two parties. All you ever hear about is how you have to vote one way or the other when there are usually better choices out there. Just my .02.

In systems without any political opposition are far more corrupt than systems with political opposition.

Republicans want smaller government AKA fewer government services... Dems want government to supply a higher level of service.

There are good points to each, however you will see that we often will swing back and fourth between the 2. Carter, followed by 8 years Regan, 4 years Bush 1, 8 Years Clinton, 8 years Bush 2, Now we are at 4 years Obama. While congress has gone from Dems, Reps, Nearly perfect split, to Dems in that same time frame.

My guess is that one or maybe both houses of congress will go to the Reps this fall.


Dems can not survive without the Republicans. Republicans can not survive without the Dems. It is not so much that one party is better than another it is they are opposite sides of the same coin.
