I understand your reasons for making your choices, but try and understand mine before you discount them; I don’t vote for anybody who abuses my rights, like I wouldn’t put up with someone who would demand to kick me in the nuts before I could walk into my own house. I don’t vote for whoever might give my cojones the weakest kick- I vote for someone who isn’t going to kick me there. When more people do that, we will all see better presidents and senators. Until enough people do that, all we will see is more nut-kicking, and being handed an ice pack by the winner doesn’t make it any better.
