I'm going to count Nixon as my first vote even though I actually cast no vote in that election. I had arranged for the state of WV to send me an absentee ballot in basic training. The sole reason for my "intended" vote was simply my own "pocket" as Nixon was saying he would give a pay raise to the military. I thought getting more than my then current pay of $288 per month sounded like a good thing. That was the last time I considered solely my own pocket.

From then to now, I have voted democrat for the reason Sen stated on his last vote......"I found the position of the party to represent the same way I felt on many issues." So my votes have gone with the stuard of the party. I weigh what I believe to be true with the party platform....the democrat party has always fulfilled a greater percentage of my beliefs.

The following is how I cast my votes in past Presidential elections:

1976 - Jimmy Carter - Democrat: It was my first time voting and Carter's "everyman" farmer persona appealed to me. Like other young Americans, I unfairly labeled Gerald Ford and linked him with the problems of Richard Nixon/Spiro Agnew. I know view that as a terrible and uninformed mistake of my youth.

1980 - John Anderson - Independent: At that time I was just getting my feet wet in absorbing and (somewhat) understanding the political landscape at the federal level. To this day I am not sure I still understand it - lol. Anyway, by 1980 I had lived 5 consecutive years overseas, and based on that found the "energy crisis" and many things centering around President Carter's assertions concerning that crisis to be misleading. Anderson, a former Republican, had a one on one debate with Ronald Reagan (PBS, carried on Armed Forces TV) and impressed me with his positions on tax reform/simplification, foreign policy, military readiness, and the economy. It is sad that the big 3 media at the time - ABC, NBC, CBS felt that only Reagan and Carter should debate on national TV.

1984 - Ronald Reagan - Republican: In my opinion, the best vote I ever cast.

1988 - George Bush - Republican: My hopes was to see the Reagan policies continue to grow.

1992 - William Clinton - Democrat: He fooled me, plain and simple.

1996 - Ross Perot - Independent: By 1996, I had, and still am, disillusioned in both the Democrat and Republican parties. The candidates that both parties seemed to back were elitist and more interested in special interest groups then the American people. Although I did not view Ross a candidate who could win, my vote was my statement in showing my unhappiness with the two controlling parties.

2000 - Ralph Nader - Independent. Again, I had no love for Nadar but was hoping that enough Americans would vote for him that it would create a third viable party for the future. Unfortunately, not enough people provided votes and the hopes of a third party were not realized.

2004 - Michael Badnerik - Libertarian. I attended two speaking engagements held by the Libertarian party. Although Badnerik did not reflect any aura or confidence or charisma, I found the position of the party to represent the same way I felt on many issues.

I am interested in those that are willing to disclose what Presidential Candidates they have support in the past. Is your vote or support based on Democrat vs. Republican, Conservative vs. Liberal or solely on what a Candidate themselves states as their platform and beliefs? Are you a party voter or do you vote based on the individual?

When first eligible to vote I registered as a Republican. Since 1980 I have been a registered Independent.

My local voting history, first as a resident of New York and now as a resident of Nevada is mostly Republican, with some votes being cast for a Democrat, Independent or non-partisan.

To keep this discussion focused and make it easier, let us keep to the Presidential Elections.
