No, but I could under the right circumstances

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I do, it goes a little like this.
"Are they running for political office?"
If yes, then no vote.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
__ Supports private ownership of personal firearms, to include pistols and everything banned under the Brady Bill.
__ Political/voting history demonstrates a trend of turning to the private sector as the solution to most problems, over government being the answer to everything (ie healthcare, etc)
That's it. Everything else is relative and change depending on how one candidate compairs to another.
You BET I have a litmus test. I look at their records.
Forget about what their ads say. Many might say they are conservative and want smaller government, but in many cases, their records prove otherwise.
Very few prove to be true conservatives. My two favorites are Ron Paul and Rand Paul. Herman Cain doesn't have a political record, but I've listened to enough interviews and his comments to know he practices what he preaches.
On the flip side, Romney created Romneycare. This one thing alone proves that he is a socialist.
Obama is much worse. His entire culture and upbringing is anti-American. To him, America is the "Great Satan." Now look at his record. Every action he has done is one that a usurper would use to destroy America and its economy, and he's doing a darn good job at it.
