Blues, you are entitled to your opinion and I have always respected that. You have done much more research than I have had time for. I have aligned myself with the republican party from the time I was old enough to vote, mainly to have a say in primary elections. That being said I don't only vote party. Sorry to disappoint you. We have a flawed political system. It's been corrupted and infiltrated by special interest and career politicians that have no regard for the good of the country. It's all about what's in it for me. I would love to support a candidate that was pure and honest. The last human to walk the planet that fit this was rejected in the name of religion at that time. The system we have is what it is and we end up playing the cards that are dealt. You can choose to play or choose to watch, the choice is yours alone. I choose to play, if that doesn't fit your game plan, so be it. I'm sure I've said some things you don't agree with. Now and then you make that clear. How boring life would be if we all agreed all the time. For the sake of argument I'm content with agreeing to disagree. Politics and religion, two subjects that can ruin a friendship.
