I mean yeah supporting the ones you agree with through money or volunteering is a good start. But say some candidate you have an issue with that you feel pretty strongly about wins the democrat primary. Like a guy who promised last time around he'd pass legislation to regulate pollution by businesses more strictly and then when he took office he voted yes on a tax break for those same businesses after being lobbied by them pretty hard. Are folks supposed to ignore corruption from their own party and vote straight-ticket anyway even though re-electing this guy is tacitly telling him that his corruption isn't a dealbreaker for you?
