How do you vote?

Do you vote based on your personal beliefs? Why or why not? I absolutely vote based on what I believe. I'm not saying that everyone has to agree or believe in what I believe. I just think that how I vote should be reconciled with what I believe.

  • I totally think you should vote based on what you agree with. although I also kept in mind that our country was based on freedom of religion so any beliefs of mine that were strictly religious, I tried to think about objectively. I had to think about "well not everyone is the same religion as me"

  • I also vote with my beliefs, plus I am a republican so I tend to vote that way too.

  • Most of the time, I vote based on my beliefs and what/who I feel will do what is best for my family. I said "most of the time" because during the last gubernatorial race here I voted based on the fact that one of the candidates gave me the creeps. Silly, I know, but he gave me the willies.

  • I vote for who I believe will have the best effect on my country. Who's stance on issues that are important to me, are more alligned with mine. My religous beliefs have no place in my politics.

  • I vote based on personal beliefs and definitely not by the party, but it seems that sometimes one party agrees more with what I agree with. I voted McCain/Palin (R) and I voted Warner (D) for senate in VA, I also voted for Boucher *I think thats how you spell it* also a dem for house. So I'm not for just one party. Warner is known not to take crap from anyone and he is known to not care about his party if they aren't doing the right thing for the people.
