    Re: Do you Vote Based on Personal Lives?

    My support for a candidate is based on their track record for promoting and supporting a small constitutional government with a strict balanced budget policy and hardline anti-United Nations, socialism and global warming policies, believes the US should stop nation building and policing the world, have ZERO tolerance for illegal immigration and amnesty of any form, with a Donald Trump style stance on capitalism, world trade and US/China relations.

    Since these particular qualifications are rare among political candidates, I must determine which one makes the most convincing sales pitch of how he has seen the error of his ways and promises that I can trust the new man he has become___As we all know politicians have been known to promise anything for a vote while selling their soul to satan for insurance__Any suggestions on which republican hopeful might have earned my trust???___Anybody???

    Of course there are many who say they would vote for a ham sandwich if that's what it takes to get obama out of office__The lessor of two evils is getting old and has very likely contributed immensely to this mess we're in___We need a hero__a real live hero.

    That would be because you judge what is "truth" through a political lens.

    Will they actually follow through with their ideas? Or, are they just lying to the gullible for votes? That's where character comes in.

    I vote based on whether I view the candidate as the best for our country and one that also represents my ideals and I know could represent my properly. Not based off anything stupid like thier ex wife's rant or their political party.
    It is a man's reason that lifts him to the stars.

    Of course we vote based on their personal lives. I don't beleive those who deny it. I doubt that many here would vote for a serial killer, or a member of that wacky cult that Tom Cruise believes in

    However, many of us don't believe that (some) immoral behaviors (ex lies, extramarital sex, etc) are deal-breakers.

    I normally vote on the values and choices made by said candidates.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Not at all. Truth is not dependent upon a "political lens". Truth is absolute.

    If he or she met my criteria where other candidates failed, then definitely yes__Believe it or not, homosexuality is not that important to me.

    Unlike liberals, I don't really consider it worthy of serious debate and have even criticized others for blowing this issue way out of proportion.

    yada-yada-yada!__it's your signature that caught my attention, DashAm.

    If Obama is the 4th best president America has had
    Whatever, people were so fascinated with electing a black POTUS, they were saying he was the best even before his inauguration.

    then I am the 4th of God's gifts to women.
    What I want to know is, what have us poor deprived girls who never met you been missing out on?
