    I don't think voting for a Republican under any circumstance is a virtue.

    Really UA? I always had you for a "consider the data" kind of guy. Although I don't know why. Straight edge, atheism and minimalism are all absolutes, so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised.

    Maybe he has considered the data. From what I've seen it's been a while since almost any republican politician has been for anything other than "more republicans getting elected at any cost". My mom was a lifelong republican (small government, less foreign intervention libertarian style) who announced during the bush administration that she would never vote for another republican again. (If I recall correctly it was medicare part d with no negotiation on drug prices that finally pushed her over the edge.) Unfortunately she died less than a year later so she lived up to that promise but I suspect that if she were still alive she'd still be living up to that promise.

    I vote for republicans almost every primary. It's the only way to have any say in many of my local elections.

    also, I'm allergic to absolutes.

    reflecting more on this, if I remember correctly, UA has an issue with voting, not just republicans.
