Udolpho's post Eight reasons not to vote for the Republicans… is dead on. Unless your rep is truly deserving of your vote (someone like Ron Paul) a vote for a Republican is a vote for nothingness, a void. The current Republican party is Dorothy Parker's "there is no there there."
The Democrat Party is another thing altogether. It is a cargo cult masquerading as a political association. It promises everything to everybody. To be a member of a cargo cult is to mark yourself as a primitive. Vote for the Natural Law Party before you vote Democrat!
In fact, I always support the Natural Law Party's presidential candidate. After all anyone who cannot only run the country, but can also serve as his own Airforce One deserves every citizen's consideration.
