Hehe, I figured I'd get some crap for that. I see it as somewhat acceptable, since I'm questioning the premise of the statement "Giuliani was on CNN". In my mind, the idea that someone thought "you know who could give us some real insight into this election? Rudy! He'll have a lot of constructive commentary, and will really be a valuable resource." Thus, I'm questioning the reality of the premise, as I refuse to believe that actually occurred.

Also, I like saying that phrase.

Mitt Romney
30.3%
Today's Change: -2.6

That's a funny-looking trend.

Mittmentum is capable of moving in multiple directions at once, which confuses data until it is unskewed.


Mittmentum has quantum effects, much like Romney's positions. It's only upon observation that the wave function collapses and it settles into one state or another.

should put a stop to that

You know, I got up at 5:30 to get in line to go vote. The only other people I saw, apart from voters, were day laborers. They weren't going to vote, they were going to work. Those people on Facebook can shove it.


Are you kidding? Those were totally Romney supporters. They want to get that sweet sweet capital gains tax reduction in exchange for losing their home mortgage interest deduction and having no health care. Book it done.

skullkrusher: imontheinternet: skullkrusher: imontheinternet: skullkrusher: imontheinternet: Doing the right thing is pulling your head out of the sand, looking at the differences between the candidates, which are real and easy to find, and then making a decision based on which candidate shares your views. Waiving off the candidates by saying, "they're all the same and corrupt anyway" is a cop-out. Full stop.

You want to know the "cop-out"? It is everyone who equates "both sides are undesirable" or "I don't match up well with either party" with "both sides are the exactly the same". Far too many use that to waive off valid concerns about "your" candidate. LOL objectively false! It's bullshiat. We're not saying they're "the same" except in how we find them both undesirable.

Every candidate is not equally bad. Pretending that they are is an objectively false cop-out. If you think there should be some perfect candidate who is tailor-made to match your views exactly, you're living in Magic Fairyland.

Pretending I said they are when I just said the opposite in the very post to which you responded is dishonest and feeble.
Try harder.

Where did I ever get the idea that you said both sides were equally undesirable?

I don't know? Your ass? Herpes is undesirable. Cancer is undesirable. I find both undesirable. Do I find both equally undesirable? Nevermind the fact that you said "equally bad" and didn't even use the "undesirable" word. Stop lying.


To clarify - when I said they are only the same in that we find them both undesirable, I was not saying they are equally undesirable but rather the only way they are "equal" in that I do not like either. Not that I think they are both equally bad. As I've said, in this very thread, I'd be voting for BO if I lived in a swing state

Aracnix: TheMysticS: Aracnix: Remember folks:

There are not 2 choices for president. There are 6 candidates. Vote for which best represents you and your beliefs, not who you are told will or should win.

(As a former Obama voter, may I direct my fellow disillusioned Democrats toward Ross Anderson of the Justice party...)

Been there, done that.
3 elections for Nader.
Go ahead and laugh, but I always vote my conscience.
Last time? Obama.
McCain? Lord no. Palin? Girlfriend, go back to what you do best- looking purty.

Now? Romney? Sheesh.
Ryan? Fark that legitimate rape bullschnitt.

Obama has done some good stuff.
But dang, not liberal enough for me. But I have no choice. I'm certainly disillusioned. But the alternative is too much to bear.

...I think my point sort of strolled by you, there.


How so? Been there, done that.
Done exactly what you suggested.
Three times.
I made my point.
I might even go off-ticket in the future.

But not last election, and not this one.
Call me led, call me a sheep, call me whatever you want.
I don't believe a vote outside the 2 main party choices is throwing your vote away.

But, I cannot allow myself not to be counted on the side of sanity.
And my dream 'right' of universal access to healthcare got real traction this time around.


I'm sorry if you can't understand that.
