I vote Republican because; I was raised to believe that nothing in this world is free and you have to work for a living. No free handouts. I believe in a strong military. In this day and age, we face a very real threat from those who would see our Country destroyed if they had that chance. We do not bow down to any one. This Nation did not come this far to be some body elses subject. It was built on freedom and certain values that are not present anywhere else. I am a cop and I believe in the law and it's preservation. Liberals are soft on crime. Slap on the wrist here, a "Don't do it again" there. Nothing is solved and criminals reoffend over and over again. Most of all, 31 years ago my family left USSR to make their life here in this Greatest Land on Earth. We fled Socialist Communism, for the shores of a Free Nation. In my 31 years here, I have seen the government change, but not like this. This is the first time that I really feel as if we are headed exactly in the direction of becoming what my family had once fled. I vote Republican because this is the only way that I know I can secure the furure for me an my family. That is why I vote the way I vote... Why do you?
