while most polls see s this year's presidential race dead even.One poll clearly indicates an Obama victory.An annual poll given to high school students found 60% support for Obama to only 30% support Romney. This poll seems to represent accurate adult segments of our society that vote. The poll has predicted the last four presidential elections. You can read the rest of the article@Oaklandpress.com.

what the heck is wrong with people in this country they only want to vote a two party system? Why cause they are like children worried that their vote wont count? I havent voted the two party system in nearly 20 years.

Democrats and Republicans, "two wings of the same bird" -

The policies under which this country currently operates were put into place by the joint efforts of Democrats and Republicans. The economic debacle of the last several years was caused by bills in the 90s that removed various financial restrictions, bills that were introduced by a Democrat President and approved by a Republican Congress. The bank and corporation bail outs were started by a Republican President and continued by a Democrat President. The war in Iraq was begun by a Republican President and financed with monies approved by Democrat and Republican senators. That war was continued by a Democrat President until he could put in place another war in Afghanistan. Follow the money trail and you will find that the huge seed and pesticide corporation, Monsanto, has donated equally to Democrats and Republicans. The same is true regarding the pharmaceutical industry, the insurance industry, the processed food industry, etc. The so-called Obama Care is very similar to a Republican health initiative attempted years ago.

People could make their votes count regardless of the system http://occupywallst.org/forum/freeda-template/ but that would mean that they would have to stand for something and take responsibility for decisive action with any abridgement of justice rather than mearly vote-n-hope.

People watch TV. They either believe the lies, or, become confused and fearful. That is why they vote for a Democrat or Republican. If we, who have stepped out of the stream, respectfully present a case for voting otherwise we will start to see change. Big Money has contrived this present system. They have power over it. We have power by not voting for a Democrat or Republican.

I suppose you would prefer to rebuild the entire governmental system from the ground up?

We do not have time

Did you note the size of that last hurricane? Have you noted the President's response? Compared with Katrina?

The issue of Global Warming is now going mainstream - even though it was not mentioned once during the Presidential debates. The reason it is going mainstream is simply because the reality is changing - meteorologically speaking - and it is changing right before our eyes.

Do you want global warming deniers in DC at a time like this? I think not.

Nor do we want to start from scratch. We kinda saw the results of that in New Orleans. . . .

You already have global warming deniers in there now. Plus, they dont value human life, or the wars would be over.

The best poll is who sells more Halloween masks. And Im going to guess you are going to see a lot more of the charismatic Obama masks tonight (or this past weekend) than you will the uncomrtably-out-of-his-shoes Romney.

That makes sense. A wolf in sheep's clothing is scarier than a wolf.

And much more effective at signing monsterous legislation and expanding wars.

Never underestimate the stupidity of humanity. Without it, Bush could never have gotten enough votes to have had two elections stollen.
