In politics itís hard to vote for the better candidate if they are on the other side of the aisle from where you normally typically align
Not for me, I do not belong to either party and I think the party system has done more harm that good. I vote for who I think is best for my country, state or county. I have voted for Dems and for GOP and independents.
To me there is no aisle, so I don't have that problem.
The issue with the party system is that itís gone beyond politics. Itís a lifestyle for a lot of people. Poor Alabamians living in rural areas would rather elect a pedofile than a Democrat, because the pedofile isnít a Democrat. To them, itís not about the issues. To them, Democrats represent the establishment, which they believe has failed them. Trump won on this mindset.
Unfortunately, voters like yourself are few and far between. In a perfect world, the majority people would actually educate themselves on the issue and vote for the candidate that best exemplifies their best interests.
Instead, the party is the only defining criteria. Itís a culture. The GOP can literally sign a tax bill with immense implications for poor and working class individuals and these people will continually vote them in.
