Hating the Democrats is not necessarily a good enough reason to vote Republican.

There is huge discontent with both parties right now. I believe the obvious answer is not to vote for either a democrat or a republican in the fall elections. Don't be afraid to "waste your vote" on a third party candidate.

Your vote is going to be wasted if you vote democrat or republican.

If not now, when?

I agree. Deliberate abstention from voting (as apposed to being just to0 apathetic to vote) is a form of protest. And, right now, it looks like a pretty good option.

As a former Democrat, having left the party following the 2008 Democratic Selection, I won't support those in the party who assaulted democracy. Neither will I jump on the Right Wing Express.

Without decent centrist candidates, not beholden to either the Dems or Pub, we are being forced to chose between the lesser of two evils. Abstaining from supporting either may be the only choice - for me, at least.

Abstaining from voting democrat or republican, and then voting third party, doubles the power of your vote.
