The Eastern part of the state gets way more funding per capita than the western part.



Per Capita is the key word there.

Money should be distributed based on where people live. It is not currently distributed that way.

The eastern part of the state gets more than its fair share under the current system.

You are the first person I've ever seen that thought the western part of the state gets preferential treatment. Raleigh does, but it is considered eastern NC, not western.

I am speaking of the triangle all the way to the Mtns. as not being Eastern.

Eastern is Coastal to me.

Then the plains/rolling hills.

Then the mountains.

I don't in the least consider the Triangle as eastern.

can't support a guy who advocates spending public money through education vouchers for religious schools, opposes the very idea of student loans without guaranteeing equal access to higher education for poor people, wants to cut medicare and medicaid in half, wants to privatize social security, so on, so forth. there's some significant overlap between the two, and i don't want to paint myself as a single issue voter but if "fug the poor" could be considered a single issue than i'm never going to vote for it sooo

i guess i should say that i don't expect them to vote for stein; rather, to articulate why not. when the majority of them are just like "yeah bro libertarians gonna legalize it bro" or "hey let's not fight unnecessary wars and subsidize the military of foreign oppressors" and "they're all the same so i'm gonna vote for someone who's not a reptilian" it's funny that the same candidates that always come up are racist ron paul and randian gary johnson


You use "it's funny how/when" way too liberally.

Like "it's funny how resident socialist and racist cantrell actually thinks that higher education is a fundamental right."

Not so much funny as embarrassingly illogical.

My biggest criticism of Johnson is that he could stand to be a bit more hawkish. Otherwise, he's the only libertarian candidate who's ever been worth a damn.

Well,I would have to see a breakdown of why money is spent in some areas before I agree. There are a lot of expenses in the Eastern part of the state that wouldn't really apply to the Western areas. For example, maintaining ports, maintaining beaches, running ferries, and fixing areas damaged by Hurricane. These are all things that are good for the state economy (tourism, transportation and industry), and they are pretty much exclusive to the eastern area.

Also, since you are including the triangle, that is where most government employees live and work, and it means that many more of the state's public universities are in the east.

My biggest critisism about the candidate I am voting for is that he seems to be slowly giving up. He is up against such a huge mountain of false media bullshit that he honestly wants to quit, but he feels that he cant quit because the people that support him (many in secret) need him to fight for all of us, even the majority of the people dont even realize what his opponent is prepared to do.




In 2016, when Ventura is running for president, i will return back to my Libertarian party and roots, but this year Gary Johnson does not even have a chance. I am supporting Barack Obama, and this is big time down here in Florida where we will probably decide the election.

I'm upset that I'm forced to vote for either a Republican from the 21st century or one from the 19th.

Romney is too conservative on social issues.

Mcroy will probably try and fire me.

romney/ryan are too anti-liberty on select social issues. i'm not as worried on that front as they have no chance on getting legislation passed on those fronts outside of ndaa. ndaa bothers the hell out of me. foreign policy bothers the hell out of me also. since obama/biden and romney/ryan are effectively the same on those fronts, i am voting based on economic issues. if ron paul were representing, i would have almost no qualms about the guy i vote for. however, given how our window of opportunity to fix the deficit and economy is shrinking, i am voting for the turd sandwich over the giant douche.

I'd say both Romney and Obama are good representations of modern-day neocons.

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.

More like no matter how shitty Romney may be, he is still an improvement over Ovama. His 4 years have been such an epic economic failure that even Mr. Potatoe Head would be an upgrade.
