I hate to go against the grain but I am NOT voting for Romney/Ryan [nor am I voting for Obama/Biden]. Anyone with a firm grasp of environmental issues knows hunting is an integral part of an ecosystem. It really has nothing to do with what political party they're affiliated with. In my opinion, the less generalizing and finger-pointing we do to each other, the more work we can accomplish together.
Hey Josh, I agree that it’s hard if not impossible for them to get things done when the two parties don’t compromise at all, and no side is perfect, but I urge you to vote, even if it is against me. It’s a great privilege that people in the past have fought and died for. Not voting counts too as a “ I don’t really care vote”
There are many sites to help you quickly wade through the BS. http://www.votehelp.org/
Most people fall somewhere in between, so these surveys help not only see where you land on an issue but also how important that issue is to you. Then tells you that you are % one way or the other. It was very interesting for sure.
I’m a heterosexual male that’s married, my family is #1, Church on Sundays (most of the time), self-employed, loves to hunt and fish, owns a hand full of guns and want to keep them, kind of guy. I want hunting, fishing and my guns around long enough to pass down these traditions to my kids and grandkids, like my father did for me. I work hard to grow my business and make money for my family, and I don’t spend more than I make. I’ve never depended on government for a hand out or free ride. When I bid a job I want to win or lose based on price and my ability to work hard and get it done, not my sex or race. With all that said it’s easy for me to decide.
On other issues, I don’t really care if two guys get married, or if adults want to smoke weed. I would probably even vote for them to have their way if they weren’t the exact groups that are out to take away my freedoms.
These surveys may help you identify the things that are important to you and point you in the right direction. Hope they help you find your way.
