Do you research candidates before voting? How could anyone vote for Romney or Obama?


I wrote articles about a local Modesto mayoral election in 2012. Though I was on the first Google results page for the biggest search phrases on Google (and there weren't too many!), only a few dozen read the articles. I see people voting for Obama and Romney. How could anyone vote for these? Personally, I'm voting independent party- so I will not waste my vote. It is time to send a message to the world elite: We don't like your canned puppets!

    You may not have noticed, but Obama is transferring all the wealth to his friends.

    I hear people all the time saying "Well I ended up voting for (idiot) because I really hated (bigger idiot) Those people are breaking the system. They're telling (idiot) that you LIKE him, when you clearly don't. They're part of the problem.

    As far as "occupy" they wasted public resouces, broke laws and their camps bacame havens for criminals, that is why I do not have any respect for them.

    How about "no evil"?? If we're down to voting for the guy who's just going to screw us the least, then what the hell are we doing?

    A lot of what I see in politics appears to be nothing more than an effort to divide us all against each other. Then they step in as the "solution" with more laws that ultimately yield power to them. This is one of their known tactics, btw.

    Chris,

    Thank you for a well-developed response. I'm glad someone is watching. I do challenge you on this: What percentage of campaign statements do think Romney will keep? Obama? Before you answer, look up "Rules for Radicals". Rule #1: Lie.

    Dear Old Empresario, please vote. I honestly care less who you vote for than that you participate. I understand the sentiment, believe me, I do, but we can't afford to tune out. Not any more. Please reconsider. As for the rest, well said.
