There's a reason a higher percent of eligible voters stayed home than voted Obama into office - and that's because two-party politics represents corporate interests rather than the Public interest. In 2012 almost 40% (Gallup) say no Democrat or Republican candidate is talking about issues that are important to them - who wants to bet those issues are the corporate control of our electoral and political system? Only third-party candidates are talking about that issue, because the Dem and GOP establishments are both beneficiaries of corporate influence.

Not actively opposing Obama was the most I could do in the last go 'round regarding the biopoly appointment. I supported Cynthia McKinney. Clinton has so much dirt on her that it would fill one, or more Liebherrs.

McCain is a non-starter.

Very very very sad.

People forget a vote for D/R is a vote for bombings of poor countries.

If you are saying Dr paul, I realize he is saying those things, but he is running with the duopoly, so Im not sure if he could pull it off.

I needed to make a correction, Ron is not supported by the Koch Brothers, but they both do follow the same ideals.

So it would be better to say Ron Paul supports deregulation which could allow further wars supported by our military industrial complex and the oil and other energy corps.

He also "says" he is about getting back to what we are suppose to be- a country, not the world's police.

I dont think Washington needs anymore help getting in wars. 7 different nations can attest to that.

You are just a plain idiot! If the Bamster says the UN demands we bomb 500 other countries, then by gawd, that is what we will do. Now stick your head back up your ass if you can't sign a declaration of love for the UN.

These four men REQUIRE that you vote for Obama

John Roberts
Antonin Scalia
Clarence Thomas
Samuel Alito

If you don’t believe them,
ask Newt about Citizens United

You are a stupid shill.

The United States is not at war with anyone and in case you haven't heard, the world does have a police force of which the United States needs to lead.

How can you be so stupid and so willing to distort facts by calling light policing the same as war.

You should be detained indefinitely and hung by your toenails while being beaten over the head with pillow cases stuffed with soup cans.
