There is no actual political campaign. The "rules" for sound and objective contest for the office of president has been reduced to concerted smear tactics. Fox runs "news" that is particularly slanted in favor of Romney while inaccurate and demeaning of President Obama. Fundraising totals (Romney 24 million, Obama 9 million) are aired as though they represent the voice of the electorate. Note that the rise of Superpacs that are conservatively oriented and operate in secrecy are buying the presidency, irrespective of the issues. Political polls (though there are many to choose from) are purposely selected that favor Romney's assumed rise in popularity. Conservative politicians have consistently opposed every effort by the Obama Administration to grow the economy, create jobs, spur investments and make healthcare affordable. They shape public thought with a plethora of negative campaign ads and manipulated facts, then assert that they are sensitive to the voice of the people. That trick is the same tactic that is routinely played in politics. There is the assumption that Citizens, too absorbed with work and family matters, will not care or understand how and why we are being duped. Politicians do not care about the public will. It is too amorphous and transitory and easily swayed by emotion. Wealthy, vested interests have always controlled this Republic for self-serving ends , and are willing to create political crisis in support of those objectives.
This says it all:

they saw President Barack Obama as the president of promise and reformation? During President Obama's administration, unemployment and national debt is the HIGHEST it has been. More and more civil liberties are being eroded. Despite Obama's dismal and horrific record, Americans...

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said last week that Obama has a secret agenda for his second term. I'm wondering what that is. Romney did not say. Or is this the old psychological trick of projecting your fault on the other guy. Is it Mitt who has the secret agenda? I surely don't know. Perhaps,...

I am taken back to the site 'unskewed polls' where the conservatives were saying that the mainstream polling system was unfairly skewed in favor of Mr. Obama. So, I bet I could not find them now anywhere among all the bits and bites of the internet. Maybe you guys can add to this most interesting,...
