My voting history, what's yours?
1984 Reagan
1988 Bush
1992 Clinton (misplaced hope he would shower Arkansas with big Federal projects like LBJ and Texas)
1996 Dole primarily because I met Jack Kemp in 1983 and was a big fan
2000 Bush
2004 Bush
2008 McCain
2012 Gary Johnson
2016 Evin McMullin hard decision seriously considered Gary Johnson.

Once a Republican but no more.
Mike Huckabee once called Arkansas a banana republic and that was proven true when the GOP took over the legislature. After several ethics issues they proposed a constitutional amendment that purported to close some ethics loopholes but actually reduced oversight and increased the number of terms legislators could serve.
True banana republic, the old order is overturned by people even worse.
Had some indictments. Had a kid die at a daycare owned by a legislator who had passed bills cutting oversight of daycares. Had one who reduced restrictions on private adoptions who was discovered to have adopted a young girl with behavior issues. He and his wife placed the girl in a new home. A pedophile.

The social issues have turned me off. I used to laugh at tax and spend Democrats and damn if I didn’t elect cut taxes and still spend Republicans.

I’ve gone from GOP to GDI.

2000: GWB
2004: GWB
2008: McCain (wish I could take that one back and sit out)
2012: Romney
2016: Sat Out (despise Hillary, but Trump just sketched me out)

2020: If things continue the way they are, I'll vote for Trump.

The sky hasn't fallen. The economy is doing well. Internationally, our friends and foes aren't pushing us around. The new tax law looks amazing for business and families.

RE: My voting history, what's yours?
1984 : Reagan -- had been a Reagan fan as a young kid as I had seen him speak in person in the '76 primaries
1988 : Papa Bush -- was not a Papa Bush fan, but the mainstream alternative Mondale was simply too closely tied to the worst President on record
1992 : Perot -- disgusted with Papa Bush, was not enamored of someone who was an unknown in my book (Clinton). Voted for him even with the crackpot Stockdale on the ticket.
1996 : Clinton -- earned my vote as a successful President, notwithstanding his major support of the Hillarycare and the carbon tax initiatives.
2000 : Nader -- had been a McCain-ite, as this era of McCain did not resemble the McCain of 2008+ in any way, shape, or form. Did not like GWB as Texas governor, and truly reviled Al Gore. Voted Nader to ensure the Green party a place on the ticket in Texas, notwithstanding I did not agree with Nader on hardly anything.
2004 : Shrub (the Molly Ivins term for Baby Bush) -- earned a vote as being a strong leader.
2008 : Barr -- hated what McCain had changed into, did not like Obama one iota. Liked the speeches of 2004 Obama, but the Presidential Obama simply exposed him as the community organizer in chief that he really aspired to be.
2012 : Romney -- Obama lived up to my expectations. Did not agree with Romney on everything, but I dont think any party has nominated such an upstanding person in my lifetime. Agree or disagree, Romney is a horrendously good person.
2016 : Johnson -- Hillary was the only candidate to make me seriously think about voting for Trump. Trump was the only candidate to make me seriously think about voting for Hillary. By far, the absolute two worst and most seriously flawed candidates ever nominated in my lifetime, imo.

RE: My voting history, what's yours?
2004 - Kerry
2008 - Obama (worked for him in VA)
2012 - Obama
2016 - Clinton

Grew up in a very conservative home. I never liked how my parents talked about other people in the country, always felt like the party was and still is extremely selfish. Therefore, their boy grew up to care more about other people than himself, so I vote and now with honest to god Trump in the white house and seeing how the GOP has bent the knee to him, will always vote Democrat.
