What is your biggest criticism of the candidate you plan on voting for?

I'm not gonna try to convince you to change your vote...but you know that what you just said literally goes for both "parties," right? This is politics 101, haha. We know both sides are controlled by the same powers, and that the charade is presented to further propogate the illusion of choice, right? With that being said, we know that a vote for Obama = a vote for Romney, and a vote for Romney = a vote for Obama, right? They're the same candidate with different color neckties. So with that being said...it surprises me that you'd intentionally vote for the status-quo (that you so fervently complain about on here) who has their sights set on the domination of humankind, versus voting for a liberty candidate who actually cares the well-being and freedom of humanity.

The whole "they're the same candidate" thing is an argument for the intellectually lazy. They very distinctly are not.

i'm neither a fan of johnson's "fair tax," nor a fan of the fact that he can't win.

The whole "they're the same candidate" thing is an argument for the intellectually lazy. They very distinctly are not.

Argument for the intellectually lazy? I am interested in how that is so. Sure, the two disagree on issues that in the grand scheme of things are trivial and/or fabricated, thus the illusion of inherent difference...however, when it comes to issues that matter - which are those responsible for the dire state we're in - the two candidates are lockstep with eachother. As we know, this is because they're both controlled by the same corporate, banking, and geopolitical interests that make up the American establishment. This can be easily acknowledged when you look back at the last 12 years and see that Bush Jr. and Obama have literally been the same president, despite their supposed congenital differences. Obama extended the Bush tax cuts...he extended the banker bailouts...he extended the widespread murder and wars in Middle Eastern nations, not to mention the corporate exploitation of the area's resources...he's extended the infringements of human liberties with NDAA, riding off the coattails of the Patriot Act...he failed to close Guantanamo Bay as promised...he supports the Federal Reserve crime syndicate whom essentially hold the global economy in the palms of their hands (at the expense of all humanity).

At this point we know the president has no real authority...that should be a no-brainer by now. The left vs. right paradigm is a farce, and is designed to propogate the illusion of choice and difference. This is why nothing ever changes and the status-quo continuously marches forwards. What better way is there to ensure this when both potential representatives are mere puppets for the same hierarchical entity? C'mon Rodeo, this shouldnt be anything new to you...this is politics 101...you know this.

That's literally the only reason why they are voting for Romney. You could have a fuging Mr. Potato head as the republican candidate, and they would still vote for him. He's a pretty shitty candidate and will be a bad president, and will probably pave the way for a Hillary Clinton presidency in 2016.

Anyway, I'm not voting. NC is already going to be a Romney win. I'd vote for Obama solely because we have less of a chance to go into Iran. Both are going to suck corporate cock and our economy will decline further, but at least Obama doesn't want a literal trillion dollar war machine and another war because we have to suck AIPAC's cock.

Just going to say this and I can't say how I know but less chance of a war in Iran statement is a big fat wrooooong.

Watching supports propagate lies from their candidates is almost as hilarious as the candidates lying.

I'm voting for Gary Johnson, and I have no problem with Gary Johnson, other than the fact that he will not win.

It's probably because she's a socialist, cantrell.

Let's get 'im, boys!

you literally whined about gary johnson not being "hawkish" enough

gary johnson would still fund the military at a higher level than any other nation in the world so you can get the fug out of here with your neocon bullshit. you can't pretend that individual liberties matter to you and still clamor for hawks (well unless individual liberties only count if you're american and/or white). you can't cry and cry and cry about MAH TAX DOLLARS going to feed poor minorities (taken by gunpoint of course) and still criticize the guy for not being "hawkish enough" when he would admittedly continue military spending at a level higher than that of any other nation in the world

as for stein's socialist leanings, i feel you. i mean, a guy spends years of his life writing about "fleet-footed negroes" and the "imminent race war" and well, i'm ok with that; but when someone suggests that we tax the rich and provide healthcare and education for all then i say "no more!"

i mean really what exactly do you want from a president other than for him to be another in a long line of hawks while absolutely gutting domestic programs? you literally want a military dictatorship because you, like many other "libertarians," are in fact an authoritarian asshole

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
