It's not lost on me......heck Ms. America has 50 choices, Baskin Robins has like 40......let's have the same and let the best person win!!!

Well, I'm too old to vote for lesser of two evils, bla, bla and, instead, vote for who I think is best for the job. You can't condemn the establishment and support it at the same time. I really wished Obama had done what he had promised. I'm voting Green, again. see http://www.salon.com/2012/11/03/why_does_obama_get_a_pass_on_civil_liberties/?source=newsletter

Yea, what'd the judge do? Nothing. These corrupt judges should be arrested.

@Mr. Independent Voter - If you are a realist, you better realize that you are throwing away your civil liberties if you vote for either Obama or Romney. I suggest you read, "Support for Kill List and NDAA make Obama and Romney Unfit for Office." Why you would be choosing to throw away your own civil liberties is the real question? http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/reawakening-liberty/2012/nov/2/support-kill-list-and-ndaa-make-obama-and-romney-u/

Mr. Independent you're full of it. "It comes down to two guys who can get in there and you know it". It comes down to the two guys alright. The same two guys every time. Tweedle dee and tweedle dumb. There isn't a dimes worth of real difference between the two candidates. Both of them stand there and lie right to your face and you're still going to vote for them. Sorry, I don't buy it. We could have better but they won't allow it.
Eve November 04, 2012 at 03:30 AM
Mr. Independent Voter, I don't know why you didn't know about the other candidates until October. It is your duty as a registered voter to seek out information. Unless you are depending on the media. And based on your shared views, I could probably guess which media source. I, too, am an Independent voter. And I could never waste or throw away my vote on any candidate I didn't support. The very idea of voting against a candidate is ludicrous to me. But I can't deny so many of you will. I'll be voting for GARY JOHNSON!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/wp/2012/09/05/deval-patrick-slammed-mitt-romney-last-night-but-do-his-facts-check-out/ A fair and balanced, factual analysis of Mitt Romney's record as governor. Compare to Obama's record as Illinois senator then President, Mr. Independent. Dig.
The Illuminati November 04, 2012 at 04:02 AM
Mr independent, if you are going to talk about flip flopping please be fair. I'm also an independent and will be voting for Romney. Obama said he would reduce the debt in half...he instead doubled it. He was against gay marriage, now he is for it. He said he would reduce insurance premium costs with Obamacare by over $2000 per family, instead it has gone up $2500. I'm sorry, but his record proves he is a much bigger flip flopper and just gave us lip service to get elected. I'm not buying it this time. I'll take the guy who has a successful business pedigree over the community organizer... and I voted for Obama last time.
The Illuminati November 04, 2012 at 04:07 AM
Simple question everyone should ask themselves when they go in the booth... are you better off than you were four years ago? Are you better off paying almost $4 a gallon instead of $1.90? Are you better off with 8% unemployment? Are you better off having your health insurance premiums go up almost 30% because of Obamacare? Are you better off with each child in this country carrying $57k in debt the minute they are born? If so, vote for the current guy. If not, vote Romney.. the others are just wasted votes.
The Illuminati November 04, 2012 at 04:09 AM
And I promise you in four years if Romney has not kept his promises, I will vote to kick him out too.
Smedley November 04, 2012 at 04:28 AM
Illuminati yours is the vote that's wasted. How old are you? I can't believe you actually believe what your candidate is saying. Was gas $1.90 four years ago? Oil is traded on the world market. The candidates have nothing to do with the price of gas and it will continue to go up no matter who gets selected. "The only vote that's wasted is the one you cast for someone you don't believe in"
Mr. Independent Voter November 04, 2012 at 04:56 AM
I'll tell you what ticks me off Smed and that's the fact that these other folks, Johnson, Stein, etc, were not allowed to debate with Obama and Romney so America could see and hear them on a national stage like those two.These people are on the ballot for president too and should have the right to be there equally to express their views. I just might change my mind and vote for Johnson, now that I know more about him. after looking him up and his record.
Mr. Independent Voter November 04, 2012 at 05:31 AM
The Ill, give this article a read: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/01/mitt-romney-massachusetts-budget-_n_2051922.html?utm_hp_ref=politics you might find it interesting.
Mr. Independent Voter November 04, 2012 at 05:39 AM
I got to look him up Eve, and I'm thinking about joining you. I blame the media straight up for me not knowing too much about these folks, until late. Like I told Smed, I think they had as much right to be at the three debates with Obama and Romney, as they did, being the others are on the ballot too in all the states. They should have been there to have their say, like the other two.

@The Illuminati: The simplest question everyone should be asking themselves is, "Am I and the American people better off with or without civil liberties?" That is the only question. More on the secret losses and abuses to our civil liberties under EITHER an Obama or Romney administration: "Obama, Romney Still Silent on Civil Liberties in Last Debate" "Among the primary threats to security is our government," Buttar said, "and the founders of our nation warned us of this happening."

Gov. Gary Johnson has stepped up all his life. He has already won honor with his reputation as a prosperous and honest business man, and very successful and still popular former Governor of New Mexico. Maybe some of us ran after the wrong candidate. Fortunately, you can still change your mind, and learn more about other third-party candidates which will be on the ballot in 48 states (Johnson) and 38 (Stein). Be sure to watch the last Presidential debate on Monday evening, Nov. 5th, 9:00 pm Eastern time between Gov. Johnson and Dr. Stein hosted by Free and Equal Elections. Pass along to family and friends links to the Free and Equal Elections site, and stay tuned. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1
Yikes! November 04, 2012 at 11:28 AM
I'm with Sharpie, it comes down to your RIGHTS - if you are wise enough to consider the big picture and look past the end of your nose to see the value in healthcare for all (works in other countries just fine) and Your petty gas prices. And really...8 % unemployment? Thought it was under 8% as reported recently. Some of you people act like it's 20%. Romney outsourced American jobs to foreign countries to save money and avoid paying taxes. You think he is going to help unemployment? He is not on our side. He stated his priorities IN PERSON loud and clear. Thankfully it was recorded and released to the press so we can see his true colors.

Here's a breath of fresh air AND a goodly dose of real. "Gary Johnson's 7 Principles of Good Government 1) Become reality driven. Don't kid yourself or others. Find out what's what and base your decisions and actions on that. 2) Always be honest and tell the truth. It's extremely difficult to do any damage to anybody when you are willing to tell the truth—regardless of the consequences. 3) Always do what's right and fair. Remember, the more you actually accomplish, the louder your critics become. You've got to learn to ignore your critics. You've got to continue to do what you think is right. You've got to maintain your integrity. 4) Determine your goal, develop a plan to reach that goal, and then act. Don't procrastinate. 5) Communicate. Make sure everybody who ought to know what you're doing knows what you're doing. 6) Don't hesitate to deliver bad news. There is always time to salvage things. There is always time to fix things. Henry Kissinger said that anything that can be revealed eventually should be revealed immediately. 7) Be willing to do whatever it takes to get your job done. If you've got a job that you don't love enough to do what it takes to get your job done, then quit and get one that you do love, and then make a difference. www.garyjohnson2012.com
Smedley November 04, 2012 at 05:20 PM
Those are great principals. I like number 2, tell the truth. The U.S. Main Stream Media could use a lesson in that. They used to tell the truth on the news. Before 1987 If you were a station like ABC, CBS, CNN, or Fox News you had to prove you were telling the truth to get a broadcasting license. In 1987 Ronald Reagan undid that law so they could say anything they wanted. And now they do.

I know most people think we got him recently. Bin Laden had kidney disease. Did they find a dialysis machine in his house? What bothers me is no evidence, no hearing, no trial, no body.

Sharpie November 04, 2012 at 06:58 PM
@Eve - the discussion is not about the duty of citizens to seek out information on candidates, the point is that the two major parties have an unfair and unequal hidden bias in excluding third party candidates from even getting on state ballots, in addition to having the advantage of exclusive media coverage of the Presidential debates. We are "fighting for a more equal election process."

Please all get this message out to all New Yorkers + all else - we don't have to be living in the dark both figuratively and literally. Make this be the last storm where people are unaware that we have choices in energy that are being silenced and denied. Truly sorry for all those suffering and struggling w dangerous grid-system energy. It doesn't have to be this way. 5,000 patents have been denied for new energy technologies in recent years which have the power to revolutionize our nation, world, and planet. Research new energy, and the life work of an American hero, the late Dr. Brian O'Leary. Really shed some light on energy. We're living in a dark age. Come out into the light. And support those who support opening the door onto our patent system, and the new energy movement in America. It's overdue, long overdue. http://www.newenergymovement.org/

Come to think of it you are right, the body they showed could have been a double,,,,Wow another Obama illusion. Ya know, my father was a POW in WWII for 18 months, and when his children came along, he taught us to know what is going on in your government,,, Read and read somemore. It amazes me to see the american people, following like sheep to slaughter. We were taught that if we were not careful, that socialism begets communism and it scares the heck out of me of what we now have in the WH, as the other thing that my father taught us girls, was not to become so complacent as this is when we will destroy ourselves from within, I sure hope he is resting in peace, as he would be very appalled at what is happening today, Thanks Dad, for your wisdom and love of how the USA used to be.

On the ballot for the Presidency, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green). Make a special note to remember to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1

We need another party that can give us real choice. The two current parties are most interested in competing with one another & who can best the other. The people are lost in the shuffle.
