You have to sacrifice too much to vote republican.  I won't put human rights aside for the sake of what some may think will help the economy.   Its just SO wrong.

I might be forced to vote democrat, but I will probably never vote republican.

I have to agree, Glen.  I have a number of customers who are very intelligent, very successful, and very Republican.  I do not agree with everything they espouse, but do not disagree with everything either. Unfortunately, they get painted with the same brush that covers the Christian right-wing nuts who have seemingly taken over that party.  Hopefully you and they can find a middle ground.

Mark,
I agree the Republican party leadership often caters to fundamentalist Chritians, often to its own detriment. However, that does not mean that I or others here cannot reasonably hold to other aspects of republican positions or candidates, including the ones I mentioned previously.  Along those lines, I doubt many Democrats here always agree with the views or positions of all Dem leaders either (especially since they are not always in agreement with each other).   By the way, I heard from yet another member (in private email) who said she had similar views.  As I said last time, I know others as well in the group who do as well, and wish they'd sometimes speak up in the group, but understand if they choose not to. I think this group is great for the most part, but would like to see an atmosphere where everyone feels free to express different views (as long as it's done without hostility) without fear of ridicule, especially since we have many views in common. As Sam noted, and I agree, sometimes it's more a matter of perspective or degree than flat our disagreement.
