The only thing I can say as advice to any and all ATS'rs is VOTE OUTSIDE THE BOX. Write in Ron Paul or vote for a third party. What we have now and the problems we have now are from those people in D.C., the status quo did this to us and now they offer us more status quo and call it change.
Vote out all incumbents and possibly we can save America yet without bloodshed, and show those two parties that you are tired of the crapola choices they give you. I for one am tired of voting against someone or for the lesser of two evils, I want a real choice and real change.

Very well pointed out. Policies don't mean jack during a general election.
Things that were promised in the primaries changed when the candidates entered the General election. Likewise their policies will change when they become President. So what is being offered now is a best case scenario.
They won't know what they can do till they get in office. Remember Bush I Read my lips..... History indicates that the majority of promises are seldom fulfilled. They will also have to confront Congress which more times than not have their own agenda or twist to the issues.
What the Candidates say now I take like a grain of salt. They really don't know what to expect. Character counts more than policy IMO.
