For me, there are several factors but my biggest issue is with church and state. If Romney is president, abortion will be illegal and that's based on religious belief, which I think should have no roll in politics. That is why I mainly vote democratic, not because the odds are stacked against the poor, although they need a voice and more often they don't get one because money from the rich ensures they often don't have one. But mainly because Republicans bring in religion way too much. And the fact that before they are even president, they are swearing a pledge to somebody just so they can be nominated for that party. That sounds like their party is being held hostage.
But I respect everybody's vote and how they see things. But I just want to comment on another thread, in which we have a mane follower on here who has been on medical leave from work due to surgeries and there are some mane members (Meck and bpc) who have said some horrible things to him without even knowing all the circumstances of his situation. In my opinion, that's no longer respecting a different opinion. There's no place for that here at the mane, and it disgusts me.
