    A couple of things come to mind.
    I tend to vote for who I think is the best candidate to handle the circumstances we as a nation face at the given time.
    Personally I wish both parties would stop telling us if they are "pro-choice, "pro-life, in favor of marriage equality or not....etc"
    Those are (personal) decisions that should be left up to the individual.
    The liberals don't want the government telling them what they can or can't do and the conservatives don't want the government telling them what they can or can't do.
    They just disagree on the type of gov. intervention they do want!
    The main things I'm looking for are candidates who are dedicated to building a strong economy and defending the nation from terrorists.
    Everything else pales in comparison in my opinion.

      Those are pretty good reasons.

      I wish the majority of Americans would put the economy and national defense ahead of issues the President has almost no impact on at all (IE - Abortion), that issue has been (and will continue to be) dealt with in the courts, not by the President.

    Since I'm not for any party, a candidate would simply have to say what I wanted to hear. Simple as that. It's not good to reject someone simply because of the party they affiliate with even if you  agree with their opinions.

      I agree with that reasoning.

      A great perspective for any American to have.

    I am a registered republican but always don't vote that way.  I look for candidates who are pro-union and who I believe are best for the economy, the war on terrorism and so on.  I am a christian but personally don't care if the candidate is pro-choice or not.  I look at all the issues and not just one
