The choice thou isnt one of distinction, but rather one of degree.

Eg. Not whether we cut entitlements, but rather how much.

Not whether we prosecute Wall Street or not, but about how much we suck up to them.

Not whether healthcare reform controls costs or not, but rather dealing with the symptom of the real problem. (cost controls vs coverage)

How much the corporate tax rate is going to be lowered.

how many countries we will violate and to what extent.

How little action we take to protect/support domestic manufacturing.
etc.

honestly if Obama loses now it would be about the equivalent of the Chargers choke job last night. It could happen, but If I could bet on it, I would bet the House on Obama.

Yes, but 1 party is trying to repeal that while the other is in staunch support of it. If that's your major concern, it's pretty clear cut.

Go ahead and choose between your Giant Douche and Turd Sandwich.

According to numerous scientific studies........


Highest I.Q. = people that don't vote

Second highest I.Q. = people that support third party and independent candidates

Third highest I.Q. = independent voters

Fourth highest I.Q. = Democrats

Lowest I.Q. = Republicans

Mittens by default... Obama has had 4 years in office and has been an abject failure, I can't take another 4 years of his incompetence.

No way in hell can this be right, Republicans ALWAYS carry the white male vote and Democrats ALWAYS carry the black vote ;) (Every legitimate study on race and IQ has had blacks come in last place).

The stupidest thing any eligible voter can do is to not vote. You're just letting the rest of the nation make the decision for you, which may not suit your personal interests.
