If you don’t like the Democratic candidate do you vote for the Unaffiliated candidate or the Republican?
If you don’t agree with all that a Democratic candidate does do you not vote for them? Hell who agree with everyone about everything?
Do you vote for the Unaffiliated candidate because you like their platform because it is close to your Democratic agenda? Well damn if they are running on the Democratic agenda issues then why in the hell don’t they register as a Democrat? Help me to understand!
