I did that, I found out both parties govern just about the same. It is the noise they make, their rhetoric that is polar opposite, not the way they govern. Both govern in the business as usual mode.
    Exactly! When you look at what they do, not wht they say they're the Tweedledeeblicans and the Tweedledumocrats.

    Since I live in California, i.e., Democratistan, it's already a given that our electoral votes will go to whoever the Democrats pick. Therefore, I'll most likely vote libertarian just as a protest once again, unless, of course, there is a scintilla of a chance that anyone but the Democrat will win, then, it will depend on who the candidates are.

    Obama was very nice and cordial. Hillary was actually quite likeable. She has a very firm handshake and looks you right in the eye, and stays there. Biden is a jackass. Edwards was a jerk.

    On the GOP side, most of them were also really enjoyable to be with. The only one I really didn't care for was Huckabee, who was way too folksy with me and didn't let me speak a damn word. Hunstman was just a really regular guy. Romney I met more than a few times and really liked. Perry was a little standoffish. Giuliani in '08 was a delight, as was Thompson.

    Speaking of Perry.....he is going to throw his Hat into the Ring. Which I don't think is a good thing. Just more division at a time when we don't need it. This country cant afford another Democrat in for another 4-8 years.

    Be nice if there was an Independent that could take it.....but since that aint going to happen. We have no choice but to go with the Lesser of two evils. As no vote is a win for the Democrat. Remember Division is their only means to win.

    I'm willing to give Perry another look when he sets up shop here. I never gave him serious thought in 2012 but will see what he has now.

    If the Dem candidates are either Biden or Clinton, I will have no choice but to vote for the alternative GOP candidate. My bigger worry is always which GOPer I vote for in the primaries, which is the only time I always vote for the GOP POTUS candidates, or the GOP period.

    Division and the Republicans' penchant for shooting themselves in the foot.

    Interesting.

    I have often said that I would like to have a beer with Obama...I just think he is a lousy POTUS.

    Likely true....too bad the Republicans are pushing so many of us out the tent door.

    I may not vote Dem......but I'm not voting for people that call me a liar either.

    I think an individual NO option or a none of the above line should be a part of every election. We are poorly served by the current system and the kissing of rings of major donors is not my perception of democracy.

    That he was. I wish he were about 20 years younger and rearing to give 2016 a shot.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    No, I will not vote for Ted Cruz or Rick Perry. I also probably wouldn't vote for Rand Paul but that's still slightly up in the air. The only big x-factor to these conditions is if somehow Elizabeth Warren became the nominee. Other than that I'd probably vote for Hillary, Biden, or stay home.
