    I am interning for an elected official in my town and I've campaigned for both the NC Democrats and SC Republicans.

    I should've added the lost option. Just vote Other.

    And yes that's what I meant. Something like, Under Secretary of State for European Affairs, or even a Chief of Staff for a member of a State Legislature.

    So that's why I pay attention.
    I am not partisan and I'm not looking to join a party. I'm not looking to advertise for a party and I'm not looking to run for an office.

    Generally, I want the people who I vote in power to do a good enough job so that they don't screw up my life so that I can actually achieve something that is actually worthwhile.
    Can you give an example of how they screw up your life?

    (I'm not trying to sound like I disagree with you that they do - I'm just curious in which ways it affects you)

    Wasting public funds on BS projects.
    Giving fat contracts to political clientele from the budget to reward them.
    Screwing up important things like education and healthcare.
    Borrowing money which I and those like me have to pay for. The debt is on our head, the government, the country, is the people.

    and other such things.
