We're talking President here. If you are a liberal and there is a liberal candidate running as a Democrat for what reason(s) would you not vote for them?

Would you vote for a known Communist? Would you vote for an ex-con? Would you vote for a drug addict? Would you vote for a proven liar? Would you vote for a politician with a scandalous past (not talking sexual but more like got away with a slap on the wrist for fraud, embezzlement, campaign finance crime, insider trading, tax evasion, etc.)? Would you vote for a President with zero management experience? Would you vote for a president who would drastically increase the national debt and you have children? Would you vote for a former Republican who switched parties and became a Democrat? Would you vote for a Muslim who has a record of speaking favorably about Sharia Law or belonged to organizations supporting it? Would you vote for a President who thinks the federal government is better at making parental decisions? School decisions? Would you vote for a pro-life Democrat who is liberal about everything else? Would you vote for a former lobbyist? Would you vote for a President who took end runs around Congress? Would you vote for a liberal who doubled your taxes? Would you vote for a president who told you what you can and cannot eat or drink? Would you vote for an "open borders" (let anyone in) person?

Those are just some questions to ponder. You don't have to pick any of them. Assuming you have a mind of your own and don't let the DNC pick your candidate choice, I'm just curious about where liberals draw a line for a Democrat candidate. What can't they be or be for?

You evaluate each candidate for their respective strengths and weaknesses. You are voting for a person, not just running a filter on a sequence of labels.

Let me ask you two questions:
1. Under what conditions would you vote for a Liberal Democrat?
2. If you are a conservative and there is a conservative candidate running as a Republican for what reason(s) would you not vote for them?

Though I almost always vote for the Republican for President, I might have trouble voting for one that was completely anti gay or anti civil rights period. That being said, it would depend on who was running on the other side and a candidates overall view. I do not vote "one issue" but vote for the candidate that seems to share my views the closest.

The question is irrelevant since any democrat or republican wouldn't make it through the primaries with any of them with the exception of a proven liar.

Yes, there is a number of reasons I wouldn't vote for a Democrat and you listed a few of them.
