Finally heard from another American who is pulled in two directions like me (Comment 11 by Free2011). I'm a Republican too, and I don't know how the hell to vote this time around, with the Republican party taken over by theocrats. I'm almost ready to defect....

I don't know how any one could call themselves a Republican after their racist party has intentionally tried to sabotage the country just to insure they get elected in 2012. And anyone with an IQ above a typewriter could see that fact plain as day. The current Republican party is a cancer within the US.

And I am not a Democrat.

I am, and I just want to offer that aligning yourself with a political party needn't mean that you support everything that even most of it does.

Republican candidates are notoriously more openly religious, yet there are plenty of atheists (here, even) that vote Republican.

Democrats are largely opposed to nuclear power and prone to using ‘tolerance’ as a euphemism for ‘condescending ignorance’, whilst I'd like to think this doesn't apply to me.

I've met a lot of Republicans this year that are dumbfounded by the 2012 candidates and feeling very divorced from their party.

You get the idea.
