It's no secret what you support... corporatism sucks. The question becomes this - who do you support in the 2012 elections? Take a moment and state who you supported in 2008 if you were old enough to vote then - and why. Then indicate who you support in 2012 - and why. Also include your political affiliation. Some people will participate, and some won't - that's fine. Just trying to open some dialogue and see what/if any common gron exists between different visitors to this site.
I'll start. I'm registered (R). The only reason I choose one or the other (R or D) is because you can't vote in my state's primaries unless you are registered one or the other. I chose (R) solely because I am fiscally conservative and for no other reason (I'm socially centrist).
In 2008, I voted for Chuck Baldwin (Constitutionalist Party). In my humble opinion, the constitution is written specifically to operate from the center. In context, it neither favors the right or the left. It favors everybody. It's not until the right or left start defining its intent when we start seeing problems and people start believing it's a document that won't work because it is antiquated. it's not. It's every bit as relevant today as it was when it was first penned 230+ years ago. I know Baldwin is a Baptist preacher, but theology has no place in politics and a strict adherence to the principles of constitutionality sees this true. I firmly believe Chuck Baldwin would have been able to retain the necessary separation between his spiritual theological beliefs and his political ideology.
In 2012 - I have seen NO candidates that stand up to my very demanding wants in a candidate.
