Im Hispanic, was raised in a "democrats" household, I left after Obama got the primary. Now I am registered republican, but honestly I lean Dem on
some issues and Rep on other.
I can't see voting for either in the upcoming elections, don't know what ill vote.
No one party represents even 50 % of what I believe.

I can understand.
Even though I will be voting republican, I don't agree with all 'republican ideologies'...for example, I am not religious, I believe in gay rights,
and I support abortion.
See, people should not seek to find a party who identifies their stance on EVERY issue. that's impossible, I believe in the exercising the right to
vote, so I would encourage all people to do so, and for the candidate who you feel strongest about to lead the country in a better direction.
While I love the fact that a black man is in the office, I understand that I do not support socialism.
I have a few issues with your train of thought.
You were in the military (thank you), but you were trained to be independent and rely on yourself. I am sure you had some schools in the Marines even
if they were only for a few weeks. Those schools are way harder than college so you should have had no problem taking classes and making good scores.
There is a Pell grant for students and everyone qualifies.
Do they still offer the GI bill or did you decline it when you went in?
What school were you going to? What degree? Did you get loans? According to the Republican platform you were never meant to get assistance and you
should have a large debt with your degree that you should start paying off as soon as you get out of school and find a job.
While I am happy that you went to school and did not abuse the system like many lazy a-holes do I am also concerned that you expect more without being
I don't support either party! I would be all for getting rid of ALL federal assistance programs along with ALL rich benefits. I am also for removing
90% of federal agencies especially the terrorist groups like the CIA who start all our wars and give Americans a bad name worldwide.
My point is this: You are an individual in a group of individuals. Some want a free ride and when they know how to get it they will. Others want to
improve their life by working hard and making good decisions without any help. Both can be good people, but one will make things better and the other
will make things worse by their example. There is no party that has integrity. There is not one ideology that encompasses all of mankind's issues
because mankind disagrees on what the issues are, abortion for example.
What is needed is a new understanding of our place on this planet and a new way of thinking about government and it's abilities. The government has
outgrown it's britches.It has become a cash cow for corporate giants and the wealthiest individuals. They profit from YOUR struggle to make a name
for yourself and your tax money. They are making money from the government just like the people on welfare so the rich are no different and the
parties are the same burning both ends of the candle.
This is not a PARTY issue! It is a philosophical issue. Social programs could be useful if used for a specified time that creates an equal opportunity
for the poorest people to get an education that allows them to prosper and give back to society while being able to take care of their own. People
must make their own decisions. People are responsible for their own actions. Parties are meant to be divisive so our current system is destined for
failure. As long as people identify with one party we will fail. Parties use issues to get support. Issues divide people. A house divided cannot
We all need to think for ourselves and provide for ourselves and those we make. Until that happens we will be divided and people will abuse the system
from the top and bottom with all the hard working idividuals paying the bill.
