    What I tend to see is most people vote for the "candidate" that scares them the least.

    Kind like picking your own death and your choices are drowning, electrocution, hanging, or a long fall off a tall cliff. No matter what you chose, you're still dead.

    That's how most elections appear to me.

    None of those/I have no Litmus Test Issues

    I realize this is not all possible issues. If some other issue is a litmus test issue, please list it.
    Government spending
    Guns
    Foreign policy
    Healthcare (aka ACA)

    In that order.

    I support minimum wage and minimum wage increases. I believe worker being to join a union(I do oppose closed shops and forced union dues for non-members) and that unions still have their uses. I do not believe we should be intervening in the affairs of other countries. I oppose free trade due to the fact it cost Americans their jobs and gives countries the tax revenue needed to increase their military might. I oppose the keystone XL pipeline due to the fact they are using eminent domain to seize property. I do not think the government should be spying on Americans.
    "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"

    If I agreed with enough of their positions on other issues, yes.

    I will vouch for James. I at one time thought he was a far right ideologue. I was wrong, and he frequently is not where I would have guessed on an issue. He is definitely to the right, but not blindly right, nor far right.

    Re: Litmus Test Issues(Pick All That Apply)

    In an absolute sense I have no litmus tests, but spending/taxes/debt and foreign policy probably come closest.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
