How About taking Down the Straw Man...

...and realizing that for some of us, 'party' does not matter.

Speaking to clarify my stance, I simply and consistently use the yardstick of the Constitution and the Principles of Individualism and Individual Liberty, to measure any candidate who vies for elected office.

I could give a warm-shit what 'party' they attempt to use as a vehicle to reach that goal, albeit I have never seen a democrat measure up and damn few republicans either.

It seems to this simple old country-boy, that those who focus on 'party' are certain to adopt elements of that party-paradigm and that they are certain to rationalize & justify, in some measure, not only why they are part of the particular 'party', but also to rationalize, justify and make excuses for the actions of certain 'party' candidates who quite simply do not measure up to the only reliable yardstick available to a principled voter, that being advocacy and adherence to the Constitution itself and to the Principles of Individualism and Individual Liberty.

And so it goes...
