Yes - the time to act is NOW - the place to act - Is state local and national elections - get people into office that represent the people and the issues of the people - this is where good legislation will come from for the People - Pushed by the People.

Present to whomever is President - Legislation of the People - let that individual attempt a veto and watch that veto fail because the legislation will be passed anyway by the People through their chosen representatives.

This is the way it will happen if it happens at all - by the people getting involved and staying involved - directing government instead of letting individuals direct to government what they want the government to do and how they want the government to direct the People.

When you vote for any of them, you have no alternative economy or production system, YOU VOTE CAPITALISM!

Welcome to the forum. If enough people want something other than capitalism they will obtain it. For example, Anarchism isn't a choice in the U.S. because not enough people support it.

Pretty much.

The time to act is now. But nobody is acting. And that is the underlying cause of every domestic problem with the country right now.

This is the Campaign Strategy of the GOP (greedy old plutocrats) trying to manufacture false equivalency and discourage the Vote. Voter Suppression.

The whole "lesser evil" argument is lame and simplistic prejudice. Because every day of our lives we make "lesser evils" choices, we could not survive without them. And if we actually chose "lesser evils" from George Washington on, by POTUS Van Buren our pols would be nearly perfect, and by now they would be capable of floating at will. Natural Progression.

Romney's mask is slipping.

Except the people like a good liar. Reagan would be president for life, for many here.

Aggressive kick-ass Romney is up in polls, apparently.

His base don't care if his mask, or his robot head, slips off.

The swing voters or undecided couldn't buy a clue: http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/undecided-voter/1418227

That is more propaganda.

It gives the undecided something to cling to. A group to identify with.

The best marketing minds in the west are paid to nut out this kind of infotainment packaging.

And when the polls don't add up, there's always voter intimidation, diebold machines, and payoffs to election "officials".

A tighter race makes a better horse race, and more eyes and MONEY!
