RE: My voting history, what's yours?
Nationally:

Kerry in 04 (A Decision I deeply regret, but I hated Bush when I was young)
Obama in 08
Johnson in 12
Johnson in 16

I changed House districts in there, but voted Democratic in 04-06-08-10-12 and Republican 16. I did not vote in midterms in 14

Senate: Democratic every year that Tom Cotton has run (I think he's a moron) Other seat has depended on who the candidates were.

I have voted Democratic in all local elections, mainly because I have really strong opinions about the current Arkansas House and Senate, and none of them are good.

In the local races in which they don't list a political party, I vote for whoever I hate the least.

Unfortunately, the Republican take over of the Arkansas legislature has been bust for good government.

We have the guy who has threatened a constituent in a parking lot, raised money for a new ten commandments monument but refuses to explain where the money went when fund-raising far exceeded the target. The one who adopted a child and when she proved to be hard to manage gave her away to a pedophile, the one during the Boston bomber manhunt who went to social media to say he bet those people "cowering" in their homes wished they had an AR-15. The one who got paid by a private college to give them infrastructure money. The one who went after DHS because their spouse was being investigated for irregularities in Medicaid billing. Most repugnant the one who pushed to reduce regulation of daycares after a daycare he owned had to be shut down for a week because so many kids were getting a dangerous GI infection traced to the daycare they had given instructions for a full cleaning to stop the outbreak over the weekend and it resumed the next week prompting the shut down. After getting the regulatory ability cut a child died when they didn't have a required safety device activated in a transportation van and left a child in there in the summer.

When the state had a bit of a surplus they rejected a small income tax cut even though state rates are higher than most bordering states in favor of a cut in the already low capital gains tax.

Now they are plotting an increase in the sales tax on food to cut give an income tax break to the wealthiest, no not a tax cut where people making more benefit the most, a cut only for the wealthiest literally paid for by the poor and middle class.

But the good news is they offered a constitutional amendment that created some toothless ethics regulations (making it harder to investigate and if wrong-doing found harder to act on those findings) and lengthened the term limits so now we essentially don't have term limits and now while legislators can't become registered lobbyists for some time, they can do lobbying by providing "information" and "explaining their client's position" they just can't specifically ask the legislator to vote for or against a bill.

Turning the state into a kleptocracy. Good news is come summer you can buy medical pot from someone who hired the governor's son to represent them for the license.

Tom Cotton went to Harvard Law School. Moron would not be the correct noun.

I feel largely the same way about the Republican super-government here in Alabama.

The lunatics are now running it.

Years ago Mike Huckabee angered the state when he true to form made a flippant remark to national media about Arkansas being a banana republic. When I started seeing the nuttiness I remembered that remark and realized he was right. Each time the reformers take over they do the things they wanted stopped and then take them to the next level of appalling.

One grassroots conservative PAC has been calling out the Republican governor by pointing out his Democratic predecessor was more fiscally conservative than he is. I find it incredibly amusing because their top lobbyist is my brother and I had predicted that outcome.

I didn't actually cast a vote for Carter, was 18, dumb, but I was for him. Have never considered a Dem since.

1992 - Bush
1996 - Dole
2000 - Bush
2004 - Bush
2008 - Barr
2012 - Romney

I only voted for Reagan. The others were the lesser of the two / three evils presented.
