That's the way it is supposed to be done and as you say, regardless of the results.
Very few Republicans are REAL conservatives anymore! IMO, the party should be PURGED of lots of so-called Republicans (Rs) -- I can think of quite a fewthat should be kicked-out on their butts -- but no one will take charge and do that. And as a veteran, seeing how Bush and the Rs have short-changed veterans and the active-duty military in order to send those $$ instead to the sorry/black-hole/hate us Middle East, I only get angrier.
I agree though: Nowadays, it really doen't matter who wins -- R or D -- BOTH parties are pathetic. Only an Independent, or someone from the outside with no "beholdings" to either party, can shake things up...and that's not likely to happen anytime soon.
But then again, it's been decades (or longer) since anyone with any real integrity, character, morals and spine have even RUN for President...apparently, that job doesn't attracts only the meidocre.
