I am not trying to be circular, just showing that they compromise their own beliefs when they think it'll help their political career, like 99.9999999+% of politicians.

If Ron Paul can (and does) get more votes simply running as a Republican, what does that tell you?

Most voters are idiots and vote Republican or Democrat.

It doesn't really. However, that does not excuse the fact that at this point in the game Third Party voters view themselves as kamikazee martyrs who are incapable of fathoming that politics is not an exact science. i.e., there will NEVER EVER be a perfect candidate. Everyone has clay feet. Quit waiting for a "messiah" and get in the game. It's always been the lesser of two evils and only a fool would fail to realize this and worse yet....only a cretin would view Obama as better than Romney when it comes to the economy or foreign policy for that matter.

Get your head in the game and vote this bum out!! With your vote Romney can win. Your country needs you!!

Lets say I start the woodstove-worshiping party. I run in the republican primaries because I know we have a 2 party system, and I think I have more in common with the repubs than I do the dems.
The repubs tell me I'm evil and they hate me. I get zero votes in the primaries. I don't support the repub party because they have nothing in common with me.

So in your opinion and according to your candidate performance (0.5% of the vote) this country has a population of 99.5% idiots and 0.5% geniuses like you.
Please tell me: how does it feel to be so smart?
Don't you feel lonely knowing that you cannot be understood by the idiots that surround you?
How about your family?
Statistically speaking if your all your family has twenty members, you are the only one who is not an idiot. Your mother, father, brothers, sisters, grandpa and grandma, even your uncles aunts and cousins are all idiots.
This must be very taxing on you. The solitude of a great thinker born one thousand years too early.

After many elections, generally, the people/party that loses looks at voting patterns. Sometimes it is a wakeup call to them that their constituents are dissatisfied with their message, their work, their platform.

It is not my place to ridicule someone else for voting independent, or libertarian. I am proud to live in the United States of America, where I can freely cast AND DISCUSS who I am voting for,

versus where I come from, where voting can mean being told who to vote for, or being shot/killed for voting for the wrong person.


America. I love this place.

The left is weeping. They've been let down by their false God and can't believe Obama is a mere mortal who bleeds and not a deity.


Bill Maher :
Quote:
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Obama DOES need a teleprompter
Vanity Fair:
Quote:
Has Obama ever been this off his game?
Jonah Goldberg:
Quote:
MSNBC consensus seems Obama lost.
Nancy Cordes:
Quote:
CBS News Instapoll: 46% said Romney won. 22%said Obama won, 32% said tie. Decisive win for Romney.
Sam Feist (CNN):
Quote:
BREAKING: Results of CNN-ORC Post-Debate flash poll: Romney 67%, Obama 25%, +/- 4%.
Jan Crawford (CBS):
Quote:
Telling numbers: In CBS poll of uncommitted voters after debate, 56% say opinion of Romney changed for the better. 13% say that of Obama.
Andrew Sullivan, one of The One’s biggest fans, despairs:

Quote:
Look: you know how much I love the guy, and you know how much of a high information viewer I am, and I can see the logic of some of Obama’s meandering, weak, professorial arguments. But this was a disaster for the president for the key people he needs to reach, and his effete, wonkish lectures may have jolted a lot of independents into giving Romney a second look…
The person with authority on that stage was Romney – offered it by one of the lamest moderators ever, and seized with relish. This was Romney the salesman. And my gut tells me he sold a few voters on a change tonight. It’s beyond depressing. But it’s true.
According to Dave Weigel, Romney’s 67 percent in the CNN insta-poll is the highest number they’ve ever recorded after a debate.

You seriously think that you have to be "smart" to see that both the Republicans and the Democrats have failed this country since the dawn of time?

Well, at least your post did something...it explains exactly why we're in the shape we're in.

Obama got Mitt-slapped.

Its bad when every news organization, including MSNBC is saying Romney won the debate and will probably surge ahead.

Up next the VP Debate. Seriously unless Ryan has a stroke and suffers brain damage there is no way he is losing to Biden.

Simply put, if sheeple didn't allow there only being two, "mainstream" political parties in this country, and did so with their votes, we might have had a chance to fix what ails this country.
Yeah, because having a 28 party system like in Italy is SOOOO much better. Wow. That would be great. EVERY election, you wouldn't know who won because then the parties have to get together to hash all that out. It'd be 2000 over and over and over again.

The 2-party system isn't perfect, but look around the world. It's actually the best one so far - hence the reason we use it.

Yeah, those 3rd party candidates get valid votes. Depending on your state (my vote is a throw-away here), your vote is either irrelevant or a vote for Obama. Nothing ever more.

I understand your stance. But it just doesn't work. But I commend you for trying and will not take your right to vote for whom you want away from you.

I watched the first few mintues, saw Romney look more Presidential, Obama looked beat-down. Then I shut it off and went to bed, because I think they're both horse ****.

Romney will get my vote, but only because he's the lesser of two morons. And because Obama Care and quantitative easing needs to be stopped cold.

I don't know if Biden has had a stroke, but I do know he is brain damaged. Severely.
