No matter which half of the Running-Things-Party you find yourself voting for, they've voted to dink with your civil rights, one way or another. And when they argue over money, so far it's only over how much more of your money to take and spend, not about taking less of it. (Or over how much new money to print, thereby robbing everyone of some fraction of the value of what they've already got.)
--I realize you did your level best to pick the least bad option but let's be realistic: neither one is all that good and every other party is nothing but also-rans. Sure, the GOP won't take your guns (mostly. Have you met Republican Congressthing Peter King of New York? ) but they're not going to spy on you any less.
This is exactly why the Dems and GOP hate one another so very, very much (and their supporters even more so): they're really after the same thing, just differently-packaged. Is it any wonder they so frequently deadlock, like two stray cats after the same chipmunk? Only difference is, the chipmunk sometimes gets away; we're stuck, and Room 101 is a bipartisan endeavor.
