Reasons to vote Republican
 
So to take a different approach on this: What would be your reasons to vote republican?

I'll start: A reason to vote republican, if you're really really rich and you want to pay as few taxes as possible ignoring the fact that society has made you rich through it's labors.

next?

Well, Republicans are different from Democrats. How so? Let us count the ways.

They have more money.2
They have more friends.3
They are more religious.4
They are healthier.5
They are more likely to be married.6
They like their communities better.7
They like their jobs more.8
They are more satisfied with their family life.9
They like the weather better.10
They have fewer financial worries.11
They're more likely to see themselves doing better in life than their parents did.12
They're more likely to feel that individuals - rather than outside forces - control their own success or failure.13
They have more of what they most value in life. (No, it's not money).14
All of these differences are associated with the partisan happiness gap and reasons to vote Republican

I found this on the internet, so it has to be true...How ironic considering the internet was invented by Al Gore...:laugh:

Krug, while I don't know the validity of any of that - those aren't reasons to vote republican. :-D It's not like if you vote republican you'll magically like your community better.

Sure of course, but that's not ever going to be reality in a society. That feeling is tempered for me by the fact that I've been fairly successful so far and I don't think that I've worked hard very often. I'm not lazy, but I also know a lot of people that work far harder than I do. Some are much more successful, but most aren't.

I wish there was no democrats or republicans. Just smart people who want to make this country right.

I'm tired of being caught up in their political fight for power

snowjeeper 11-15-2011 10:53 AM

So do I man, but this is the unfortunate reality - that people gang up for power and money, and by doing so take it from everyone else. Look how well that has gone for us. I'm not saying it's all one parties fault, but what I am saying is that this point in time - where we are at right now - there is not one single good reason to vote for the republicans.

There's only one good reason to vote for democrats - that they aren't republicans.
ahhaha.

LOL they might as well be. Dems presided over the biggest bailout in history -- a corporate subsidy the likes of which the world has never seen before. I also find it strange that the very strong anti-war sentiment, even among the mainstream left, has essentially been completely silent since O took office, this has allowed the democractic president to continue/escalate many of the policies put in place by Bush II. Also extending the PATRIOT act. Also stance on torture and extrajudicial killings, etc. They're not very different at the end of the day.

Maybe there is some difference between the average guy or girl who identifies as dem or repub, but the fuckers on capitol hill are 95% all the same.

I vote for the person I believe will do the best job at any position. Playing the party game is what's bringing this country to its knees.
