      Open borders to allow unvaccinated illegals into the country does not "help" the country - it destroys the country. The idiotic exit from Afghanistan that empowered the Taliban, turned our allies against us, and turned the US into a laughingstock isn't "helping", either. Forcing vaccine mandates after promising the opposite is turning the country against him. Even you should have seen this coming before you voted for him. I hope you and your Democratic comrades are happy with what you helped do. It isn't like you weren't warned.

      Thank you for your response DWW, so how did Donald Trump negatively impact you, or how did Biden positively impact you, whether financially, or medically, likeability why that person and not the other? Or why that party and not the other?

      President Biden hasn't done much yet we got to wait and see and thanks Creamcrackered
  • I was stationed in Berlin in the 1970s. The Berlin Wall was solid proof of how badly people wished to escape Communism. I am opposed to any sort of Communist influence (call it Socialism, Bolshevism, or whatever - it's nothing more than different arms of the same octopus). I was taught to think for myself and in the oath I took upon entering the military, I swore to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same". What we're experiencing now is an attack from Communism that surfaced with the Obama administration and continues in the Biden administration. The reason Trump was hated so much was that he interrupted the cycle when Hillary was supposed to take over. But it's not the first time - shortly after FDR opened the door to Communism by aligning the United States with the Soviet Union, there were investigations that sought out Communists and Communist sympathizers ("McCarthyism").

      1465, Do you have proof if any of your assertions?
  • I vote candidates, not parties. If I don't know enough about the candidates (as is often the case in state-level and local-level elections), then I don't vote on that issue. For President and Congresspeople, I research (at least to some degree that satisfies me) their qualifications and character and history and then decide which candidate is most likely to serve the office well AND in a way that best corresponds with my own desires.
    • Creamcrackered
      Thank you for your honesty.
  • I don't vote party, I vote candidate. Over the course of my voting life, I have been a dem, a repub, a libertarian, a green and an independent. Now I am a no party chosen voter.
    • Creamcrackered
      Thank you dalcocono, yes voting calls for different purpose, you always want local elections to represent your needs, but if a presidency, or a Prime Minister such as here in the UK, and that person presents a stronger argument, or the effects of what they are implementing will be more useful as a whole, then yes I agree with changing parties and I have done that myself.
  • I was a union member last time I voted they pestered me constantly to vote. The union died recently they didn't back up the members they are now blocked from my phone.
    • Creamcrackered
      Yeah, I hear you, the unions are falling a part in the UK too.
  • They care about the well being of other people and the less fortunate.
