    and I am very quickly becoming discontended with the Democratic Party as a whole.

    95% of all life forms that once existed on earth are now extinct. It is only a matter of time until the Republicans follow suit.

      I have been a Democratic voter for nearly 40 years. But why would I support a party that kicks me when I am down?

      •  This past election (0+ / 0-)

        I voted D straight ticket, except for President.

        For that vote I cast for Johnson/Libertarian.

        Yeah they are just as cooky as the R's when it comes to fiscal matters, but when it comes to social, they are FAR to the left of Obama.

        Johnson was for same sex marriage long before Obama (one could say he only supported it to stop the vote bleed).  Johnson is for full legalization of Marijuana.  And Johnson, while being pro life himself, was very much for personal liberty and freedom of choice under the law.  He was for a pro-immigration policy, and amnesty under the law.  He is both for less regulation of private industry, but not when it comes to harming the environment, and felt that if the company damaged the environment, THEY should be the ones to pay 100% of the costs, not the tax payers.

        Hell, even on some fiscal matters, he sort of made sense.  He was for elimination of income tax, but supported a flat tax.  Many on the left hate this idea as it disproportionately targets the poor, however, his flat tax included stock trading and investments.  It was enough that it would actually target the rich more than the poor, and give you a choice of how much taxes you wanted to pay (by buying stuff or not), etc.
