I'm searching for opinions. My name is Leslie and I live in Charleston South Carolina. I have been very active during this election cycle with both my local democrat club and with the candidates. Most of my club friends are encouraging us to vote straight Democratic ticket on Nov. 2nd. This is the problem I have with straight ticket. Here in South Carolina my Democratic choices include Alvin Green for US Senate and Ben Frasier for US House District 1. I can't in good conscience vote for either of these men, but if I don't vote straight ticket and veer toward the Green Party or the Working Families Party candidates how will that fracture my vote. I'm not trying to be a "debbie downer" but I'm pretty confident that Jim "Waterloo" DeMint will be reelected and Tim Scott (R) will be the Rep. for US House District 1. Should I go against my heart and my head and vote straight ticket or stick to my guns and vote for the candidates that my platforms fall in line with. Need some advice.

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
