A vote for no one is a vote for more BS. Joel Send a noteboard - 11/02/2012 05:55:11 AM
I mean he really thought this would fly? If he doesn't change it then those "activist" judges will because it is a blatant violation of the separation between church and state. I am no fan of religion overall and I reject the idea that Obama wants some kind of "war" against religion - that idea is just stupid rhetoric - but moves like this are just mind boggling. They reaffirm to me why I have decided I won't be voting for him again.

What is your plan B? It is not as if we can expect much better from the real Romney (to the extent there is one) than from the Democratic clone of him.

That is setting aside my incredulity at anyone being satisfied with Romney; we know less about how he would govern than we did about Obama in 2008, even though Romney has been in national politics longer. Mitt makes Obama look firm and open by comparison.

However, if both major parties nominate awful candidates, the solution is to seek, support and campaign for a better one, regardless of party, not surrender the government to whichever of those awful candidates everyone else picks. That is how we got into this mess in the first place, and the biggest obstacle to getting out of it.

A no vote for President is just as valid as voting for somebody. I am tired of voting for the lesser evil and refuse to do it anymore. I would only vote for Romney if I took a look at what he wants to do and believe it beneficial to the nation. If he blows then he blows and I won't vote for him. I already know Obama blows, it is clear he doesn't know what to about the economy. He will get my vote when Hell freezes over.

You act like there are only two candidates. Widespread willingness to act that way is why those candidates need only agree collude on the means of screwing us to obviate the election. Find an independent or third party candidate you feel better represents you. Hell, vote for Zippy the Pinhead, but refusing to exercise your role in government then bitching about that government is juvenile. More importantly, it is counterproductive and ensures the system only remains the same or gets worse.

Also, kudos for linking to a source, and a fairly non-partisan one as well. - 09/02/2012 01:33:07 PM 173 Views
I am a non-partisan guy, so I only use unbiased sources! *NM* - 09/02/2012 04:02:50 PM 70 Views
Is there really such a thing? *NM* - 09/02/2012 04:11:30 PM 67 Views
You lost all credibility in the first line of your post. - 09/02/2012 04:49:23 PM 174 Views
The subject line didn't help. *NM* - 09/02/2012 06:04:11 PM 70 Views
But it added some flair to the discussion! *NM* - 09/02/2012 07:46:47 PM 67 Views
You actually think any of us has 'credibility' anymore in regards to neutrality? *NM* - 09/02/2012 06:46:13 PM 57 Views
It's one thing to have a bias. - 09/02/2012 07:28:51 PM 134 Views
Some would say putting a spotlight on it is more honest. *NM* - 09/02/2012 09:34:17 PM 68 Views

I'm somewhat suprised that Obama blundered this badly. - 10/02/2012 01:40:14 AM 102 Views
Why? Have you not been paying attention? - 10/02/2012 02:03:43 AM 101 Views
If I am not satisfied with Romney then my Plan B is to not vote. - 10/02/2012 10:58:34 PM 106 Views
How does that help anything? Except Romneys election chances, of course. - 11/02/2012 01:08:22 AM 80 Views
