    The real question is why would ANY minority vote for the Republican party?
    I've never understood Log Cabin Republicans myself. Why support a party that would love nothing more than see your rights subbrogated.

    I'm a minority. I haven't voted for a democrat in years.

    You said you haven't voted for a Democrat. That wasn't the issue, it was voting for Republicans. Have you lately?

    because they want freedom to succeed and don't want to be part of a permanent lower class that the left insists on creating? just a thought.

    Same here.

    Yes I have. I'm not satisfied with the republicans. However, I see them as the best way we have to block the democratic party which I truly believe represents a danger to this country, or at least my part of it.

    i can understand that. it's really hard to find a party that has a chance of winning that you can get behind 100%.

    The europeans have the parlimentary system. They normally have more parties than you can shake a stick at. I think it would be far easier to find a niche party that would promise to represent your values. Unfortunately, there are problems with this system. The europeans managed to give us both the national socialists and communists in the same century. All in all I think we're stuck with our two party system until such time as we can get a real conservative ([ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_liberals"]classical liberal[/ame]) party. The liberals (socialists really) already have one.....the democrats.

    "Okay, suppose the Tea Party Movement organized itself as a political party. When thinking about the next election for Congress, would you vote for the Republican candidate from your district, the Democratic candidate from your district, or the Tea Party candidate from your district?"

    The response of all those who were polled was Democratic 36%, Tea Party 23% and Republican 18%.


    Long live the tea party movement. We should all encourage their efforts.
    We should encourage all third party participation in the system.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    So you don't really vote for Republicans as much as against Democrats.
