The current generation is no different than any previous generation... They have a lot more tools and information at their disposal which ironically could make them the best generation ever or the laziest, depending on what they do with it.

Registered Independent here:

Voted for Obama last time

Still undecided this time

At this point, Gary Johnson leads the race for me, but there is a good chance I will write in something like "Nobody" or "Freedom" or "Liberty" or something else... My disdain for the American political machine as well as the average uninformed American drone grows on a daily basis.

No. Attitudes like hers and mine recognize the best methods to change is to change from the inside. Tea Party is a perfect example. How many establishment candidates have they defeated in the past 3 years. Richard Lugar is the perfect example. You want change. Work from the inside out. When you fail at that...jumping up and down outside in the dark isn't going to get you anywhere.


Unfortunately, their replacements have been worse. The thing that bothers me about the tea party candidates is that there is not a hint of compromise in some of them. Some of the tea partiers in congress bother me as much as Dennis Kucinch does for the lefties. And there are more of them.

For those who think their vote doesn't matter, it very much depends on the state these days. It can make a huge difference, or it can make only a minor one.

Vote who you want to be President, imo. Ultimately the only way a third party candidate will get anywhere is if people actually believe that candidate has a chance... but because of the political setup in this country that is exceedingly unlikely. I think that a party that really wants to challenge for national prominence needs to find a way to fight into state governments first, then work its way into congress before trying the presidency, but the money involved really prohibits that kind of thing.

that's one reason I actually was thinking of voting for Roemer, because of his platform on campaign finance reform, but that never went anywhere. Bleh.

Independent here

Don't care for Obama
Don't care for Romney

No clue yet, but right now (and more than likely anyway), I'll be voting Johnson.

Because compromise=spending deals that do nothing to fix the problem

Be it defense spending, entitlement spending, everything. It needs across the board cuts...period. Some programs and their subsequent bureaucracy cut out entirely.

lol, what a brave stance. WHICH PROGRAMS?

democracy necessitates compromise... the cognitive dissonance required to spout that the only way to change the system is internally through a policy of zero compromise is astounding.

do you not see that the people who you are touting are doing the exact thing (metaphoric jumping up and down) that you say is childish and grossly innefective?

does acting like a child become more effective once you're in office? or is your scorn simply reserved for those who won't tow the line?

Who's acting like a child. Acting out knowing that you'll eventually get what you want and mommy and daddy will pay for it? Or making a stand saying no...stfu...you're not getting it because we can't afford it.

so basically the republican plan is, don't compromise at all, get full majority in both houses, and then they'll cut only what they want, not what those dirty hippies want?

Oh boo hoo. Some people think different from me so the only solution is to barricade myself in my bubble.

EBT program expansion to include Doritos?

How can any of you with any semblence of intelligence believe that the republicans are barricading themselves in a bubble and being obstinant. Guess what...Obama's plan has gotten near zero votes in Congress. What plans has Harry Reid presented? ZERO.

You want to bitch and moan about republicans having firm stances on taxation and spending, but absolutely nothing from the democrats for comparison OR compromise.

Ignorance is truly blissful. Stay undecided and don't vote...please...for the sake of the country. And by "don't vote", I include that being a vote for someone that has zero chance at winning anything.

Republicans probably stopped compromising around the time George Bush 1 was cannibalized by the democrats he compromised with.

You really are some piece of work.

Truth is republicans stopped comprimising once they started to believe their own insane rhetoric that labeled Obama as a Kenyan Socialist, that might be the anti-christ and definately is plotting to destroy America.

How can you ever comprimise after that?

There's value in understanding your enemy, Tarheel31.

Just whacking their straw caricatures won't get you far.
