Does Democrat,Republican, or Independent Really Matter When You Vote?

For me its more about who I think is best for the job when it comes to voting and less about what party they belong to. I think voting for someone just because they belong to a certain party doesn't matter as much.

I hope not, we should be voting by which ever candidate would be the best for the position and not solely on the political party you support. I haven't been old enough to vote until recently and I don't know if I ever will vote because every presidential election I have seen so far hasn't really had any candidates that would be worth me taking time to vote for. I also don't want to vote to give anyone power or control over me, it's just strange that we do.

I totally agree with you on that. I vote for the person who I think will do the best job. I have crossed lines a few times in my life.

the media makes it look different as you have one side and than the other. its too simple to say that in real world terms.

Thats how I think too, its more about who I think will be the best person for the job, alot of people don't pay attention to who they are voting for, as long as they're voting for whatever party they belong to, I don't think that helps much.

yes i think its too simple as to say whether your for one party or the other. picking the best candidate requires a more in depth analysis.
