Simple question.

Do you support our country and the ideals it was founded on over your political party, or do your support your Party over the country?

I have been voting for over 50 years and have never been registered with a party. I vote for the best person regardless of their party affiliation. Politicians who adhere to their party platform are the source of the problems we have today, no moderation, no collaboration, only extreme opposites.

I've always voted for the person up until 2004 and then I switched to voting Libertarian in hopes of getting a third party recognized.

I think both the D and R parties today are totally corrupt from within and nothing will change with them in power.

What if you believe a certain political party is out to destroy the country?

I never have and likely never will support any political party , with my loyalty towards America solely being directed toward the country itself , along with its people .

George Washington's warnings regarding political parties ring all the more true each day in my humble view .

If I recall, Washington's belief was that political parties loyalty to the party would be greater than the country/nation. If my memory served me correct, he is correct by a mile.

I think that many of our current political problems can be addressed by moving away from a pluralistic voting system, while maintaining a democracy. This country has a lot of intrinsic strengths that will remain in place for a long time. I don't want to see us tear ourselves apart over what is really a minor difference in views.

No... moving closer to a pure democracy will only hasten our demise.
