Yes. However, I'm pretty sure it's against the law to threaten anybody with bodily harm. Actually, TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 41 > § 871

What should voters consider before voting for candidate?

1. If you agree on the majority of the issues, and you can't disagree on major issues like the Iraq war, abortion, and illegal immigration. However, if you don't agree on marijuana laws, it doesn't have an effect. 2. Decide if you particularly like or dislike this candidate's personality and behavior. For example, if you did not like a certain candidate because of something inappropriate to their spouse or child or the paparazzi or someone else. If you liked someone's personality, like what they overcame or did in their personal life that was kindly or amazing, you might like this person. 3. If you like the party they are in. Personally, I am open to both the Democratic and Republican sides. If you would never consider voting for a Republican, you should probably not look into a Republican candidate or vice-versa. 4. If you like their spouse, cause after all, they will be in the White House with them and may help the president decide for example on a bill he or she is having trouble signing or vetoing. 5. If you, at the time of the election, like their vice-president and cabinet. This is pretty much all you have to look into when considering a candidate.
