    The news and blogs are abuze with the latest words coming out of the candidates mouths and their compatriots.  They can't wait to twist or truncate whatever is said to stir up trouble in the others camp. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME it all is. Nobody focusing on the issues and the answers are even less informative than that. All I hear is vote for me and it will all be better. No details or expanding the sound bite to explain what we can expect, only promises as politicians have offered time and time again. I feel like it is strictly a popularity vote as it was in High School and we are the ones left out of the "in" crowd again. Feel free to rant!

    Romney rants on the forum make a change from religion rants.

    Except for the occasional urge to play word games, I generally stay away from conversations about politics. It all seems quite futile to me. Until the public, for whom the democratic system was designed, takes a more active role in the process, politics will always be a game where the wealthy play tennis with the endless stream of self-oriented candidates.

    I just wish each candidate would come forward with his plan for the next 4 years, if elected. I don't care what each other has to say about the other candidate. It has no effect on my vote whatsoever.

    Yeah, it's pretty discouraging. Everyone has armed themselves with a handful of stock positions (abortion, guns, gay marriage, global warming, capital punishment, blah blah) and that's it. All the stuff that is ACTUALLY solvable and ACTUALLY destroying the nation is too dry and complicated to bother with. The real problems... bleh, those require reading and stuff. And they're boring. So, whatever. Let the plutocrats have America. Long as I got me some reality TV and an iPad I'm covered. Yeee haw.
