    If you are leftwinger, why are you truly voting Democrat?
    If you are a rightwinger, why are you placing trust in the Republicans?

    This year, we should kick out the Dems and Reps to show them that they can't "herd" the American Citizen like Sheep! We should vote non-main party.

    Why you say, Democrat/Republican party sucks and take us for Granted!! This year, we should choose between Gary Johnson and Rosie O'Donnel(she is still running, right?) and teach the Big Bad Party bosses that anything is posible. Including their lose of control of the American Election process!

    So if you are tired of impossible promises, over reaching programs, incompetentancy in the Federal Government, then Vote GREEN/Libertarian.

    Kick the old two party system out onto their butts!!

    Never happen until we change how we finance elections. Big money owns both sides and the little guys get drowned out.

    I'm a Libertarian who will be voting for Romney.

    The reason?

    Obama is too destructive and is everything that a libertarian hates. He has to go. I will worry about the two-party system and it's failures later.

    It'll keep getting later for everybody, if we don't realize that politicians listen to those who pay the bills. Right now it's the special interests that can round up the most cash. If we payed for it ourselves, they'd have to listen to us and it would probably cost us less in the long run because they'd have fewer expensive promises to keep. If they don't have to attend so many fundraisers, maybe they'd have time to read a bill or two! :D

    I don't have a significant problem with your post and your view, and I have no expectations that a President Romney will end all our problems. I liken Obama to the driver of a bus headed toward a cliff at 90 mph, and that throwing him out the window and replacing him with Romney will slow us down to 50 mph. That'll give us enough time to formulate a plan to stop the bus.

    I may be abstaining.

    sidenote: I think it was Rosanne Barr running in the Green Party. Easy mistake though.

    I'm independant but feel like libertarians are the closest to my personal values when it comes to Politics. I will be voting against 4 more years of Obama so therefore I am going to vote for Romney this time (last time I voted Bob Barr)

    I think if we had 4 more years of his domestic ineptitude the freedom, wealth, and liberty we have known as Americans will never return.

    I'd rather not vote.

    It is stupid to vote for propellorhead third partiers just because you are mad at the cowards, weinies, and goofballs in the major parties.

    Voting for propellorheads or cowards or weinies or goofballs just encourages them. You'd be a fool to give them positive reinforcement.

    "Someone voted for us. We must be doing something right!"

    Time for some negative reinforcement.

    "No one voted for us. We must really suck."

    So, it's stupid to vote for what you believe in, but not voting sends a better message? Are you really this fucking full of yourself?

    You sound like an idiot, friend

    "Because I'm a hypocrite and not actually a libertarian, I just pretend to be" :up:
