Election Day 2012: Down to the Wire
I'm still proudly going to vote for a third party ticket BECAUSE their issues are practically 100% in alignment with my thoughts and beliefs as to how a country should be managed. Will they win? No. But it is my hopes one day that a third party candidate can be a true 3rd Party alternative, instead of fodder for jokes and marginalizing those citizens who support third party candidates. How dare people say I am throwing away a vote for a Democrat! Well dammit, if the Democrats did their damn jobs, maybe I would go back to being one. But that ship has long passed and I don't know if there is a reason for me to be a Democrat... I quite like being something else, a Green Party supporter or a Libertarian. I have much more respect for these two parties that the stamp approved two party players who in this "Democratic" system, it appears that they are suggested as the only two. Well, screw that, I'm not falling for that, I do have a choice!
In one of the most ignorant and racist comments in this long election, I have read what Bill Maher has said about Romney supporters. He said, "If you're thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you".
