    Gaps between firing and hiring.

    I worked at a non-union factory [Motorola] in the early 1990s. Being a seller's-market economy, they gave us raises just to stay competitive with outside offers (until they relocated the factory).

    I'm a liberal but I'm not a Democrat. I'm in the Green Party because I agree with a lot of the Green Party platform (social justice, environmentalism, LGBT rights, anti-war, non-violent protest). I was raised in a very conservative home and community though. But I abandoned that ideology in my early twenties not too long after I became involved in Native American social justice and political activism. I began to realize and witness that it was in direct opposition to the social justice issues I cared about and to the rights of marginalized people (such as NDNs and LGBT). I also considered the ideology to be anti-science and in opposition to environmentalism too. I've been a liberal ever since.

    I was a Conservative Republican for years. My first 3 presidential votes were for Republicans followed once by a Democratic vote and then 3 more votes cast for Republicans. I eventually realized that those in politics who claimed to be Christian were opposed to many Christian principles and many of Jesus's teachings. I can't vote for a Republican in good conscience nor for many Democrats. I am registered Green but have only cast one Green vote ever and it was for a School Board member. I simply stay registered Green because I like their Ecological Policies in general and they mail me fewer post cards attempting to coerce my vote in their favor. I often vote Independent or write in. I despise that many people cannot get along with those who may politically oppose them.

    Cast your write in ballot for Jesus. You can't go wrong with that.

    Neither, since I'm not a USA citizen, but my sympathies and hopes are with the Republicans more than the Democrats. Democrats annoy me in their support for depravity in all it's forms.

    I'm a Democrat because i don't believe the Republican agenda is sound. It's pro status quo right down the line and we are seeing a boom bust agenda that is going to drive the economy right over a cliff. Trump's lieutenants are mired in scandals and his choice of AG is obviously going to end badly. I've watched this over decades and it never works out well.

    Been a Republican since Barry Goldwater. Now I tend to avoid the broadcast news except for my friend, David Limbaugh.
