While I don't enjoy voting for the lesser evil, I will do that rather than vote for these guys that are largely either complete idiots, or at least doing a good impression of one in order to appeal to their base. Just listening to their speeches is painful, as they're either transparently lying or just saying things so stupid that it's downright frightening that they actually got elected.

They just seem to pander to extremes with repeatable TV blurbs and slogans. I could never in good conscience vote for them, might as well just vote for a media strategy as it's all they bring to the table outside of ultimatums and alienating voters. They had their shot and spectacularly blew it, costing American citizens and businesses billions of dollars and got nothing to show for it. Oh well, with them going the way of the dodo maybe we can finally get some things accomplished even if I don't agree with all of it.

Yet in good conscience you'll vote for democrats that do the same thing. Great logic there.

Ah, yes. "Both sides do it"

Repubs: shut down the gov't costing billions of dollars
Dem equivalent: Nothing

Repubs: spread propaganda that the president is illegitimate foreigner.
Dem equivalent: Nothing

Repubs: engage in the most partisan gerrymander in the history of our country, so much that they control the house by 33 votes despite the Dems winning the popular vote by a million votes.
Dem equivalent: Nothing

Repubs: Suppress the vote in state after state.
Dem equivalent: Nothing

Repubs: Delay, kill, and filibuster every single Obama proposal, even ones that were Repub introduced, or to the right of the Repubs, in the most unprecedented display of obstruction that our country has ever seen.
Dem equivalent: Nothing

Repubs: Shut down the govn't then blame Obama for park closures.
Dem equivalent: Nothing

And on, and on.
