To my Republican friends. I know you are disappointed that your party keeps running the worst candidates. Here is something to consider. Vote for Democrats. Purge your party and give the Democrats a chance. You've had the house and senate, you even had the white house for awhile. You still didn't get what you wanted. So I say to you ...

I propose that you the voter tune out all the name calling and distractions. Make your decision based on your best interest. Decide which candidate will be more likely to do things that benefit the country and in the long run you. Who will deal best with the problems we face. Start with the issues.
The Environment - If you don't think this is an issue you probably align with Republicans, but if it's not an issue you also shouldn't rank it high on your decision making list. If this is an issue you care about then you will want Democrat's to work on it. Really if this is something your concerned about everything else is a lesser issue. The environment would be a life and death issue.
Economics - What actions do you think will help your economic situation? Shut down the government. Do away with several departments. Repeal entitlements like Social Security, the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, Medicaid. Then you will want to vote with Republican's. If you get your paycheck from a government, local, state, or federal you may want to consider this. Republicans think Government is the problem and cutting taxes will starve the beast. That will also have an effect on government employment and pay. So if you work for a government (military, police, fire fighter, public school teacher, government offices, etc.) you may want to vote for Democrat's.
Ultimately isn't that a more logical way to decide how to vote than claims against a candidate. Like whether or not their Steaks are selling, or what they did or didn't do during Benghazi. Vote for what you want the future to look like not who has the best personal attacks.

Republicans have shown that if they cannot get their way they will shut down the government. They will not allow the President to appoint a Supreme Court Justice. Let the country and her people be damned. Shut down everything. The only thing that matters is to get what they want.

Holmes, a 53-year-old Republican from St. John who is chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee, said he wrote the instruction because provocatively dressed women are a distraction. The guidelines don't detail a minimum skirt length or a permissible neckline for blouses.
"It's one of those things that's hard to define," Holmes said. "Put it out there and let people know we're really looking for you to be addressing the issue rather than trying to distract or bring eyes to yourself."
Holmes said he considered requiring men to wear suits and ties during testimony but decided males didn't need any guidance.
