Instead of whining and crying about whats bad about them , lets hear why you believe either one would be better as president.
The fact is as of right now these two are americas two choices. We have heard all the bashing now lets hear your choice , and why..
Even if you don't vote , those that do will make the choice for you , and most of those will pick the lesser of two evils
Who do you think is the lesser of two evils ?
I don't think anyone has anything positive to say about either one of them.
What makes you think one is better than the other ?

All politics is totally controlled and fake. This is why no matter who is in power you get the same things. Domestic policy is the smokescreen that stupid people never see through because they predictably get all emotional and internalize their politics.

I agree, but apathy is what got us all here.
Not voting because the system is broke dosen't fix it, it only perpetuates the problem.

Are they really choices? I consider them nothing more than selections!

"Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without."

I don't think with our "choices" being "selected" for us, by those in charge, that anything good about either of them is possible.............................
Therefore, nothing good about either of them, and neither of them will be receiving my vote!

The "Choice" is limited (left-right paradigm) and you can write in another but it will be for naught. The choice is for the least invidious candidate: do you want someone who will "fundamentally transform" our government into a socialist model by taking it down (Cloward & Piven theory) or one who will try to improve it economically while maintaining the status quo in a relative sense? If you do not vote - you have less of a right to complain. In fact that very right (to "redress grievances to the government") is at stake in this very election.

what makes me think one is better than the other? republicans vote and pass laws that are against the poor and middle class...pretty simple really, voting records don't lie and you can't spin them.

Romney has more of a moral compass....Obama has George Soros as his orienteering partner.

So I guess most believe no choice is the best choice.
No apathy here .

The only illusion is that there are only two choices and that we must pick one of those.

The only logical choice is voting for someone who isn't an ESTABLISHMENT canidate which really only leaves one.


RON PAUL!!! This is one of the big reasons ron paul has won so much support

I really don't understand why anyone for America would vote for obama.

Boehner predicts voters in Nov. will be ‘enthusiastic’ about backing Romney

thehill.com...

excerpt:

“The point I was trying to make was very simply this,” he said. “The election this November is going to be a referendum on the president’s failed economic policies.”

“I’ll tell you this: 95 percent of the people that show up to vote in November are going to show up in that voting booth, and they are going to vote for or against Barack Obama.”

I am not romeny fan and I don't like it a bit but will vote for him in order to vote against obama.

Unfortunately, shape and nothing else defines most people as humans.
The island of dr. Moreau, we are living on it.
They do not care who's arse they are licking, man. It is their job, simply because they are useless at doing anything else.
And I bet they are not even being paid good money to do it.
The Humanity as a whole is loaded with failures, and whatever you are planning to do about it will be useless and EVIL shall prevail anyway.
I don't wish for it, I don't want it, I don't like it, but this is not Schrodinger's cat, so it is happening anyway. Sorry.

Hmmm, let's see, which will it be? Oblabla? Oromrom? Oblabla? Oromrom? Oh I don't know. What's the difference?

If the manager/coach of my favorite sports team had four losing seasons in a row on a four year, guaranteed contract, I would not vote to bring him back for next season.

In addition, a good, professional coach would not blame the previous coach or the opposing teams constantly in the media.

What was the question again?

When you vote you vote for evil either way. A vote for the lesser evil is a vote for evil. I have never voted and I never will. I have a King who is not of this world, so why would I waste my time casting a vote for evil that won't even be counted ?

If you didn't allow the Left or Right to whine or cry or point fingers blaming someone else it would be awfully quiet.

In fact look we have some major political trolls online right now and what can they say.... nothin.

OK, this is going nowhere.
Which party has put together a plan to move the country forward in a positive way ?
The policys have stayed the same for almost the last 12 years.
Borrow, bailouts and bankruptcys.

Again,,,,,,,,,,,,more illusion! It is obvious the government is controlled by banks and big corporations. Therefore, how can we trust anyone, unless they call for a stop to the Federal Reserve Bank and Corporations making the laws thru the paying off our current lawmakers to create laws for the Corporate benefits versus the benefits to the people?

With this kind of corruption in charge of our country, how do we ever move in a positive direction?

I will be voting to re-elect President Obama for a second term because I believe that, in most instances, he is at least trying to do the right thing. I'm hoping that as a lame duck POTUS, he won't be so inclined to compromise with the purely obstructionist TP/GOP and maybe we can finally move this country forward, as opposed to "taking it back."

That's my answer, plain & simple.
