no, I will never become what the republican party wants.
I for one still hope for more equality for the LGBT. I hope the right of marriage for the LGBT, something that the republican party will never do.
I have become more moderate growing up, but would never leave unless the republican party goes back to the ideals of Lincoln.
As I said, I want a politician that will make the U.S better, and to always remain as a positive force in the international community.
Something, none of the candidates will do.
I didn't mean to suggest you were becoming a republican. It was more so a joke in reference to the article. But at the very least, you could say you are becoming more moderate...moving in the conservative direction.
Even so, is it even clear the republican party itself
knows what it wants?
There are certainly many groups under the republican umbrella that don't follow everything the republican party does. Our current two-party-dominate-structure does not work well in a representative republic such as ours. Both parties are guilty of essentially becoming polar opposites of each other. In truth, a system like ours relies on a diverse pool of ideas and opinions.
The sad part is that there are not many alternatives. And whatever choices are in front of us are often times all we have and, in the case of this election year, not ideal from any standpoint. This is perhaps one of the first times in American history we've faced a lose lose situation in terms of candidate choices.
However, in spite of this, I think America will live on regardless the outcome. I have a inkling Congress will make life difficult for the next president more so than the present one.
On a final note in regards to your last statement, it's nice you want someone who will do the right thing for the US and the World, but this is virtually impossible to achieve. No politician is perfect and the president, with as powerful as he is, is not a dictator. He still must answer to Congress and the courts. And I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that none of the candidates are capable of doing a good job, or at least of meeting your expectations. Many times, candidates have been criticized of not being "ready" to take on the job or are incapable of being a leader in the international scene. But to me, I think becoming president inherently changes people, often bringing out potential no one saw before.
Instead of presuming these candidates are incapable of taking on the presidency, let us assume any of them could do it and, at best, do an average job. You can vote for whoever you want of course, but let's not judge people before they actually get in the position. We already know campaigning is a whole different animal than actually being a leader.
