I think voting time is divided. The voters are hoping for something better and the candidates are greedily hoping they'll win.

Gypsy Rose Lee: Of all the years in my long lifetime, this remains the most critical election season of them all. Both candidates are decent men, but their approaches to dealing with the debt, the entitlements, the unemployment, the divisions in society, and the atmosphere of our American society leave grave doubt that anything will change for what could be four v e r y long years ahead. It's hard to admit that sacrifice is called for when so many feel they have already sacrificed so much. But we don't solve even the few problems I have mentioned just by thinking that more time will make them go away. We have to plan and commit to making them go away in response to a leadership which actually guides that journey. More of the same won't cut it.

picklesandrufus : A wrestler or a boxer faces their severest test when they are almost beaten. These next 60 days will show each of us just what the two candidates are made of. Romney is a doer, highly organized, with a set of lifetime values which have produced a success he himself has achieved. Obama is a charismatic politician, a more polished speaker, who nonetheless has failed to rally all the troops to tackle the truly formidable challenges to an established way of life which is in real danger of further economic collapse. In both men's cases, it is not about what happened to get us to this point. It is about who has the skills to get us back in control of our destiny. Voters must choose whether "Forward" takes us over a cliff to a crash, or "Back" takes us safely to the better lives we are accustomed to and long for.
