Default Vote against the GOP this November

"George Will is a very conservative columnist whose views I strongly disagree with. But even Will recognizes that, in this dangerous moment in American history, Paul Ryan and the Republican members of Congress are political cowards who have abdicated their constitutional responsibility of being an independent branch of government, and have become nothing more than Trump's "poodles." That is why Will now advocates for a Republican defeat in the November elections".

Just found that interesting.

Amid the carnage of Republican misrule in Washington, there is this glimmer of good news: The family-shredding policy along the southern border, the most telegenic recent example of misrule, clarified something. Occurring less than 140 days before elections that can reshape Congress, the policy has given independents and temperate Republicans — these are probably expanding and contracting cohorts, respectively — fresh if redundant evidence for the principle by which they should vote.
So do you think the border stuff along with media hyping it will help to determine the election coming soon?

Saltwn would you vote for someone whose views are the complete opposite of yours if your liberal democrat elected official did something to piss you off?

Anyone who suggest voting for the opposition because they don't like the president or his lackeys is a stupid tard. I am not saying you got to vote for someone in your party. You can leave that part of the ballot blank or you can vote for a 3rd party candidate who closely shares your views.Voting for the opposition is the most sure way to get all the **** you don't want voted into law.

I have to wonder how conservative someone if they are suggesting that people should vote for democrats instead of people who are somewhat or mostly conservative.

trump fans did vote for anti hillary imho
Saltwn I am sure you wouldn't vote for someone whose views are the complete opposite of yours just because your democrat elected officials did something you didn't like.
im not sure i will vote the top of the ticket at all. have to see who runs. i intend to vote in november. Got my eye on three elections:

one guy we thought would probably be governor (goes along to get along), didn't win his primary. so thats good news.

wonder who will fill his old house seat...

the other is a senator for life cause he pretends to be a republican while lining his pockets.
I kind of have picked out my republicans. we'll see who the dems run.

If I'm understanding you correctly- that treedancer would vote to save democracy over his own party candidate-

If that's what you're saying would you?

Since you shouldn't be voting in Russia's elections, I don't see the problem.

1. Putin did no such thing. The American people put Trump in office.The democrats contributed to that by picking a even bigger piece of **** than the republicans did during the primaries.

2. I didn't ask you about loony leftist conspiracy theories of Russia stealing the election or Trump Russia collusion. I asked would you vote for someone who is ideologically the opposite of you just because someone who is ideologically similar to you pissed you off? Saying if you are a republican or someone who leans conservative then go vote for democrats because Trump pissed you off or you hate Trump or buy into loony lib-tard anti-Trump conspiracies is the most retarded thing ever.
