When John McCain was selected as the GOP’s 2008 presidential candidate I switched my party affiliation to independent. I voted GOP that year but I was voting more for Sarah Palin than I was for Maverick McCain.
The two parties are like the old good cop, bad cop routine, they have the same objectives and work for the same entity.

A campaign strategist for Republican Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli said that the national GOP abandoned the campaign in its final days.
At the end of the race, Cuccinelli was closing in on Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who eked out a two-point victory on Tuesday despite exit polls that showed McAuliffe was up by seven points.
According to the Washington Post, Chris La Civita said that financial support from national Republican sources dried up on October 1.
“There are a lot of questions people are going to be asking and that is, was leaving Cuccinelli alone in the first week of October, a smart move?” La Civita said after Cuccinelli's concession speech, according to the Post. “We were on our own. Just look at the volume [of ads].”
He added that there was "definitely a national mood that was moving, that is moving, that is continuing to move against the White House and the Affordable Care Act. And I can’t help but ask myself, what would have been the result had he had five weeks of this discussion instead of just 2 ½?”
