Political Parties rely on blind following by its followers even though most of the policies and positions are immoral and against the natural laws of humanity. Yet people justify whatever comes down the line. I call it "rationalization" and my observations is that people will rationalize any frickin' thing they want to. So how does a moral person live in a world of political misfeasance? I compartmentalize: A) I try to live and think within a moral construct which is based on the libertarian moral of do unto others as you would want them to do to you. That is, I leave them alone and respect their freedoms. B) I live in an imperfect world where people are basically selfish and evil so I make choices based on true libertarian ideas with the realization that I will make a bad choice but is less-worse than the alternative choice. Because of the said (and sad) realization of the basic immorality of humans, I tend to go with the real-world solution that is going to infringe the least on mine and other peoples natural rights including obtained wealth and earned income. That generally means choosing a Republican solution over a Democrat solution because those are the only choices I have. My desire to "live within a moral construct" keeps me from associating with or accepting either Party (or the Libertarian Party either for that matter). It is really hard to choose between the Dems and Pubs because they are so much alike but one thing that seems fundamentally obvious to me is making a choice based on whether it will increase the National Government debt. If I accepted responsibility for the actions of my generation (which I do not), I would be ashamed of what is being done to the US by increasing the National debt. I understand the Pubs are just as much the cause for the current National debt as the Dems are so I make real-life choices based on choices that would seem to reduce the National debt over time.
