Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I had to answer a survey in my POSI 3308 class the other day for our simulated Congress project.

I said I'm a moderate conservative leaning left.

Based on our survey answers our professor will assign us a party, Democratic or Republican. Either party I get on I plan on causing plenty of trouble during our 8 week long mock Congress.


This survey is not limited to United States political loyalties!  Smile

How do I vote:

I vote for the person and their platform . . . . I refuse to vote along party lines, which can cause disconcern in this house with my staunchly Republican Father who simply checks "All Repubs" . . . .

Voting is a duty I do not take lightly and firstly, anyone answering this thread that didn't vote (MD-90) has no dog in the hunt; second is a priviledge that is secured under the Constitution and last, ought to be mandatory . . . .

Vote for the person.

For the record . . . I have voted Democratic in a Presidential election, and in several congressional elections.

Vote for the platform, vote your mind - not the party - that's why our political system is so dicked up now . . .

Even though I've only had the opportunity to vote in a National election once because of my age, I generally have adopted the philosophy where if I don't feel there is really a candidate that stands out to me as a person or politically (politically I tend to be a left leaning libertarian, socially liberal and economically right of center)--I vote to equalize the Balance of Power.

For example, if I were registered to vote here in Seattle, I would be far more inclined to vote republican. Whereas in Utah, where I am registered to vote, I vote democratic---though I do like Utah's current republican governor (despite having been very critical of his platform prior to the election) and plan to vote for him again if I'm still a Utah resident in '08.

Well, in Switzerland we go often to vote. We vote on a Federal, cantonal and communal basis. Personally I think that voting is a very important thing to do and we must do it with responsibility. What I do before the vote itself is to talk a lot with different peoples around the aspects and issues of the vote, watch debates on TV and read a lot on different newspapers. And no, I don't talk only to lefties but basically I try to get a wide range of opinions to build my own. The fact remains that my vote goes almost always to the socialists and ecologists side. But I admit that in some cases and specially on a cantonal basis (grand conceal) I do vote sometimes for some guys at PDC (Partie Democrate Chretien) which I personally know and appreciate even if I don't totally agree with their point of views. Since some years we are also able to watch live on TV the debates of our grand conceal who is the cantonal political authority and I must say it helped a lot to know better the politicians from each sides and how they work.

Here's for my fellows Swiss anetters :

I usually vote Rep. but have been known to vote for a Dem or two I try and listen to what the person has to say and what my beliefs are and decide who is a better fit for me. I saw this in the news it looks like are friends to the north are looking for a change.

OTTAWA - Stephen Harper and his Conservative Party won national elections Monday and ended 13 years of Liberal rule, giving Canada a leader who was expected to move the country to the right on social and economic issues and bolster ties with the United States.

The triumph for the Conservatives came with many Canadians weary of the broken promises and corruption scandals under the Liberal Party, making them willing to give Harper a chance to govern despite concerns that some of his social views are extreme.

I vote for whom I believe will be the most competent. In other words, who will f*ck everything up the least. I tend to vote for Independent candidates when possible, but almost always against the incumbent. The latter part is only because I have three of the most incompetent morons in the entire Congress representing the people who paid for them...I mean me, since that is what all members of Congress do, right?

I vote for the person - what he/she believes in and stands for. I never vote for someone based on which political party they belong to.

I have voted for republicans, democrats, and independents, and will continue to do so.

It's a shame we think in that context. See below.

Bingo. I've leaned toward being a Conservative Libertarian, with classically liberal leanings and have nodded toward the Constitution Party as well.

I wish the LP would get it's shit together and quit getting hijacked by the pro-legalization crowd. The LP needs strong management as a party if we're ever going to get off center.

I vote with an open mind.

The only proviso being I will never vote Conservative, no matter what. Otherwise I will consider all other candidates and their manifesto, and vote according to what I feel is the best for me and my constituency.
