This site has allowed for the support of an Independent over a Democrat in the past(not talking recently) . I was furious over it but it did happen.

61. Right there with you.

I have voted Dem since I was 18. I have had reservations about candidates, but the fact of the matter is that I will not vote for ANYONE who wants to put us into a non-defensive war. I won't vote R. Ever. Never ever. I want to vote Dem, and I mostly think that the Democrat party aligns with my values. But as a queer disabled veteran, they don't always.

So I also make no promises, but due to my life experiences, I will likely always vote Democrat.

66. He hasn't been challenged on the ballot for Senate by a Dem.

He won the Democratic primary race for Senate in 2006 as a write-in -- against 4 or 5 other candidates. He declined the nomination and ran as an Independent. No Dem ran in that race either.

Vermont Dems love him obviously.

Local judges my mother is an attorney and tells me who the best people are. There are a lot of good DEM judges that got voted out during 2010 and some had to switch parties they run as just to get re-elected.

Other than that I always vote DEM!

67. I've voted Dem since JFK.




The only exceptions I recall are for non-partisan offices like judges and city commisioners.

68. So this includes Joe Donnelly, Heidi Heitcamp,

Jon Tester, Ben Nelson, Bob Casey and Tom Carper? Joe Manchin?

Everyone agrees they would vote for them if that was their Dem candidate if they are on the ticket following primary?

How about Heath Mello?

I can get behind unity, but only if it's really unity.

87. I don't know. That's why I'm asking.

There's a lot of debate about who deserves support and endorsements -- implying that some do and some don't.

I can go along with something like once the ticket is set, Vote Dem regardless. That makes sense. Supporting/endorsing is different story?

69. The only time I didn't vote for a Dem ..

was when I voted for Sanders in the Texas primary
and when I had to choose between a Green and a Reep
and chose the Green.

Those are the only times.

And I have NEVER voted for a Reep in my entire life.

71. Should those who have enabled Trump be called to account?

Folks like Heidi Heitkamp (D) ND who voted yes for Gorsuch

or Joe Manchin (D) WV who voted yes for Gorsuch and Sessions?

With friends like these?

Let's look at Joe Manchin. He is too liberal to pass the GOP primary in WV. Should we primary him, we will get stuck with a FAR more conservative candidate. Rather have Joe who votes with the Democrats 80% of the time, than a GOP who will vote with us 0% of the time.

I have included the caveat because here in Alabama some of the most liberal people have to run in the Republican primary in order to have a chance of getting elected and no one will be running on the Democratic side.

I don't do loyalty oaths, and it has nothing to do with anything that is your business. If I choose to make my opinions known, I will do so at my leisure. You don't have to like it. And I don't have to get permission or approval from you to be who I choose. So, no thanks, I'm not interested in your game. What you're doing here is ugly and divisive. I've seen this game before - here, in fact,.

Because I was sure i had seen you comment about being here before the shutdown. In the fourteen years I've been a member, I've seen more than a few self-appointed Gatekeepers, so I usually just ignore them, which would mean you if this is an example of who you are. If I ever think about voting third party, maybe I'll look you up...well no, I won't. If I want advice I'll go to someone I respect and believe is knowledgeable and interested in discussion.
I'm a grown woman and can think for myself thank you, and i'm not interested in your seal of approval on any of my life choices.

108. Of course I understand how the system works.

But at the same time, half of GD is full of people outraged at Bernie Sanders for stumping for him. And the guy is a Democrat, and the logic in this thread is, we want Democrats to win, period, end of story, they have the (D) after their name.

So are we supposed to be mad at Bernie over this, or not?

I'm just wondering if there isn't a bit of cognitive dissonance.

110. Mello vs Stothert




http://www.omaha.com/news/politics/bernie-sanders-stumps-for-heath-mello-in-omaha-stirs-national/article_284457a1-a7d1-5d79-ae2e-9c8bc68ea31e.html

A last-minute addition to the rally was Sofia Jawed-Wessel, an assistant professor of public health and health behavior at UNO, who spoke about her support of Planned Parenthood.

“Rally behind Heath Mello and support the candidate who supports Planned Parenthood,” she said.

As national Democrats discussed whether Mello is a true progressive, Stothert painted him as too liberal. She held a press conference Thursday before the event to call Sanders a liberal and a socialist.

Stothert said she expected the tone of the event to be “toxic” and a “Debbie Downer.” And she talked about her upcoming campaign event with Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. “There’s a lot of excitement about him coming to town.”

That's abhorrent on its face, like "my country, right or wrong". I don't like the tone of your op. It sounds like a demand with a bit of threat mixed in. I simply cannot imagine a realistic scenario in which I'd vote for a Republican. I pretty much hate the Republican party, everything it stand for, and most of the people in it, but Democrat, "NO MATTER WHAT?", no.
