    With the current administration you might be able to get pretty much any disorder you want. Get on welfare and hang out at Wally World all day. That's what they want. Believe it or not.

    Your vote doesn't matter anyway, none of ours do.

    on the contrary... Your vote counts..... It just doesn't count for what you think it should.

    The Trick is to Vote for the smaller local elections. Change the politics localy and they will eventually change nationaly.



    As for the Presidential race, You are correct. Whoever you vote for will be a rich windbag who won't follow through with the majority of campaign promises. They will not follow your idea of what a good president will do and they will likely still spend a crap load of money they shouldn't when they get into office.

    So now knowing that, you pretty much have to vote down party lines, and when that comes into effect most people vote with their paycheck in mind. I know I do.

    As for 3rd party canidates, you can vote for them if you would like, but you know as you make that decision, even if they get into office that the position of the president is "handcuffed" by the other legislative bodies. You have recently seen how the current president has been able to pass things with the backing of party members. Unfortunately these 3rd party canidates are not going to be able to get alot of this support. So in effect, the 3rd party canidated will be controlled by the other branches and they will be regulated to the middle of the aisle on most topics. Which will put them right a bout where most presidents land. Doing the same things the other presidents do. Go figure.

    Mke is right. The local elections are just as important as the Presidential election. We saw in 2010 over 600 Republicans were voted in over democrats in local elections. The House became a majority and the Senate took a couple of steps towards a Republican majority. At least the Senate is no longer a Super Majority. The people have become aware that elections matter.

    As for the statement:
    All I know is I m not voting for the best of two bad choices
    All I can say is you ARE voting by not voting. Does that make sense? Liberals, Socialists, Marxists, Communists, Progressives or whatever you want to call them know that they cannot reach their goals in a short period of time. They know that it takes thousands of little steps over many years to reach their goal. When you get disillusioned by the system and decide not to vote then you are doing exactly what they want. They know that their system of government, Socialism, is an old and archaic form of governing that doesn't work. They can't win on the merits of socialism because there are none. They have to rely on you to not vote for the non-socialist candidate. When you don't vote for the non-socialist then you are not cancelling out a vote for a socialist. It seems like a small thing. You aren't cancelling out one vote. Woop-te-doo! It is a big thing to them. They know that is how they will succeed.

    So, sit at home and think you are teaching them a lesson by not voting while they openly laugh at you.

    The plans are in place. The structure is set up to turn this country into a socialist nation. All they need is for "The Coward" Barack Obama to be re-elected.

    Not voting is one less vote the opposing candidate has to overcome. So it is ,in essence, voting for the guy you would have voted against.

    While I would normally agree with you completely, like last election, this election finds us choosing between a liberal Democrat or a liberal Republican once again. I think we are already being laughed at for having these choices. You HAVE to think locally this year. It's the only way to make a difference.

    I wish Steve would just transfer the whole thread to the political archive -the election is over unless a legit independent pops up real soon... anyone think a ticket without diversity could win ? Romney blew it big time... There's no more to discuss...

    Why would a party organize a big convention in a geographic area that is highly prone to hurricanes at the same time?

    Is that the kind of organization that would dictate the direction of the country once in office!?

    Holy Cow !!! such brilliance...

    here we go!
