Default Are there are "R"s on the ballot you won't vote for??

Or put another way... Will most people be voting straight ticket (I know it's not an option).. Or are there some R's you refuse to vote for, or and D's at all better than the R?

I personally, couldn't cast a vote to ANY Dem no matter what at this point. I'll just assume even the worst Rep is better than the best Dem.

Me too! Cannot stand that fake! ...but for dang sure will not vote for ANY DemoKraut. ANY DemoKraut that is in office will toe the party line once elected... I give you Lizzy Fletcher as a prime example... She ran on the D ticket as an "independent person" not beholden to "Nancy Pelosi", yet once elected, she fell right in line and lock step on every vote Nancy wanted, every one...

I have voted for a lot of libertarian candidates in the past, but not going that route this time.

Straight R down the line for me, can't vote for a party that hates this country and what it stands for.

Maybe, just because Iíve known this person for 30+years. We use to be good friends, but since becoming a politician he has turned into a lying sack of horse manure.

But I wonít vote for the Democrat running against him, just leave it blank.

Yep.

I just though with all the "both parties are the same" and complaining about Reps that maybe one or two were so bad that someone would vote for a Dem..

So I'll just assume most people who say R's and D's are the same are just blowing smoke. Well except for the guys here voting all D. Who knows what their brain is thinking.

I haven't voted for a Democrat in a long time. And then it was only a judge who ended up going to the Republican party because his values more reflected that.
But there are some Republicans that won't get my vote either in some elections.

I would recommend doing your research on the judges in whatever county you are in, especially if you are in Travis/Bexar/Harris/Dallas counties. Judges shouldn't be tied to a political party, and there have been good judges (on both sides of the aisle) voted out due to straight ticket voting.

Voting against an R at election time is the wrong time to try to remove a candidate. The primaries are there for a reason.

Having said that, we need better candidates.

So voting in Houston, Katy specifically, I was shocked by the number of D only judge positions open. No R's opposing them.

It's really disheartening to see that. I didn't vote for any, but but that is how D's win, even when they lose.

That's a shame... In Liberty county where I live, it's the opposite... No Dems hold office here... Got my home out of Harris county back in '15... working on doing the same with my company now... At least I'm in Humble which is very pro-business. Nice community... trouble is, it is still Harris County which sux!

I get that some of you guys might not like Cornyn (he's far from perfect), but keeping the Senate (R) is equally if not more important than the presidency.
Please re-consider ticking the box for the guy, as Hegar is several orders of magnitude worse than he is.

Same here in SA, probably worse actually. In regards to the OP's question on some of the local races I will and have voted D. I vote the person not the party. National races I'm pretty much always voting red.....

Yup. and always did the same with Perry when he was gov...
Can't stand either of them. But as bad as they are, they're many orders of magnitude better than any DemoKraut.

Yep one District Court Judge that cannot make a decision to save her life. Always wants to take things under advisement which delays the court proceedings by months.
