    Hm, all the immigrants coming to America obviously have the opposite opinion.

    Precisely why I'm an American soon to be immigrating to Switzerland.

    It would really all depend on where their overall stances are. I'm might sacrifice a push for a social issue I believe in for a economic recovery, but I don't think I would vote for a person who would reverse a social issue trend. It's one thing to let a issue stall for a bit to deal with a bigger issue, but it's something else to have the progress destroyed. Now if I thought that the opposite candidate would destroy or make really worse the economic situation, I might have to suck it up and really push for that issue in other area to try to bypass that candidate.

    two questions to ask:

    1. which is more important to you right now. which is less painfully delayed?

    2. are you just as sure that Candidate B will be able to deliver your social goals as you are convinced that Candidate A will be able to deliver your economic ones.

    Interestingly enough, I don't believe my Great-Grandparents would have come to THIS America when they left Germany in 1910. I think they would have found somewhere else to go, or stayed in Germany.

    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
