    Yeah, but is a candidate really out if he can also be a write in at election time? Anyone could be a write in, so he is only out as in the sense that he wont be actively campaigning.
    I still think there is a chance he will run third party to snag votes away from Romney, I just dont trust Huntsmen or all of the fraud in elections we hear about these days, that and he worked in the Obama administration.

    I understand and don’t dismiss the concern with regard to campaign finance reform – or the lack thereof – and its effect on elections, candidates, and the voters.

    But it is ultimately the responsibility of voters to educate themselves on the issues and the candidates, and find the facts and truth among the dross of spin, lies, and propaganda.

    It is not the role of the state to ‘protect’ voters from unscrupulous, misleading, or dishonest political advertising, nor does the voters’ unwillingness or inability to do their own research mitigate the inappropriateness of government regulation and restriction of political discourse, regardless its venue.

    Free speech is paramount, that a fundamental right might be misused is not justification for its infringement.

    I'm not watching that, anything on the Huffington post has got to be BS, they have not reported a fact since the site opened.

    We haven't had an honest election in at least a century.

    Campaign finance matters to nobody but the socialist wankers who want total control over it.

    Voter ID. That will be the biggest cause of fraud in the coming Election. It was in the last one as well. How many Illegals,Felons,and deceased Citizens were allowed to vote for the Democrats last time? This coming Election is going to be a real circus for sure. I've lost a lot of faith in our Electoral Process.

    Couldn't agree more but look where we're getting our education about candidates.

    It is astounding to me that people actually believe President Obama is a "socialist" or a "liberal" or that he spends too much. Where do they get that? Not from facts. Not from his actions.

    There are still people who actually believe he's not a citizen, that he takes long vacations that cost $200MILLION A DAY - oh YOU know. All the garbage we hear every day.

    They'll believe lushbo (who admitted he was paid to lie about Obama - LOOK IT UP) but they won't read what he actual accomplishments are.

    All of that brainwashing and propaganda takes money.

    Mitt will be the R candidate. He's not qualified. He can't hold a candle to the president. He has told us he will crush the middle class. But people will vote for him.
