I tend to concur this part of an interesting post at Called as Seen in this post:
It seems that the only real reason to get out an vote these days is the war on terror. At least the Republicans will fight. And so, I guess my vote is decided. All I can do at this point is to make clear that my vote comes in spite of the House GOP’s obstinancy and disingenuous maneuvering on immigration, despite the poor treatment of the UAE (a valuable ally in the war on terror), and despite the fact that the House Republicans have done little to be proud of.
There is a thimble’s worth of difference between parties, these days. Our elected officials are mostly feckless and self-interested, our parties care only about cash-on-hand and the extremists on both sides are holding sway over too much – squeezing those of us who are more centrist – and creating some uncomfortable fits. But – as noted here, at least one party is mostly serious about fighting the most important battle of all. The other party is not.
