    Well, we have to get through the primaries before voting for President, so my answer is whoever wins the Democratic nomination. I can say that with confidence, because there's not a single candidate on the Republican side whose ideas appeal to me.

      I'll vote on the issues & like 2 R's but all of them have such an anti-woman stance & each of them has a variety of other ideas & plans that I disagree with. At least there's still plenty of time for me to research R/D/I before the electi

    I will vote for the eventual Republican primary winner. I'm hoping its Ben Carson but it could be Rubio,Trump or Ted Cruz.  I vote Republican because because I feel that they promote religious liberty and Christian values.

    They're for protecting the family, marriage and the lives of the unborn. They want people of faith to be free to influence every sphere of public life.

    Republican's support the Constitution as understood in its origin intent.
    Doing this will support a limited government of the people where the government is accountable to the citizen's not the citizens afraid of a lawless government.

    Republican's support a Free Market, unfettered by unnecessary, oppressive and wasteful regulations. they support lower taxes and spending. Lower taxes put capital in the hands the people the who produce more wealth, it also spurs economic growth by freeing up capital for more productive uses. Free Markets, lower taxes and less cumbersome regulations spur innovation and fuel the engine of the economy so that everyone benefits,

      I really like Ben Carson as well but I am also a staunch supporter of an individual's right to choose. I support limiting gov't & think it's limits should also extend to individual's and families' choices as gov't has no place in private choices.

      What about the individual right to life of the unborn child?

      If the parents decide they cannot properly care for a child the child should not be born to parents who do not want them or cannot care for them properly. Also, many children have it even worse in foster care & age out of FC unprepared for life.

      I'm not comfortable playing God with a human life by deciding if someone else's life is worth living. Not to mention the morals of taking the life of an innocent.

      Voting for nobody, is a choice that has serious consequences. If people don't take their responsibilities as a citizen seriously someone will take responsibility for them. That's how tyranny gets a foothold.

      I agree that voting can often seem like a choice between the lesser of the evils but your vote does count. Please reconsider and inform yourself about all the candidates regardless of whether they are affiliated with a party or not.

      Actually, no.. voting has absolutely no consequences. Tyranny gets a foothold through the blind acceptance of the status quo.. ie voting. Not voting has the opposite effect, ie: tyranny not getting a foothold.  But unfortunately, you will vote......

      How does not voting prevent tyranny? Doesn't that just leave the system the way it is by default?
