I'm not sure who I'm voting for-isn't it just "Hm, who will hurt our nation the least?" at this point? I for one just abhor the style American politics takes in terms of political messages and debate. I rarely hear a candidate talk in depth about what they'll do for the nation. Sure, there's blanket stuff-"Make jobs" "Fix economy" ect. yet the bulk of the campaign is all negative politics dedicated to slamming other candidates, throwing blame on others, and it just...Leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Do we need to know the negatives of our candidates? Yes. But I think we deserve a more in depth look at the positives, because the pros are so drowned out by blanket terms and cons. It's a tiring affair, don't you think?

Also, what is anyone's take on voting independent, just out of curiosity..? I mean, you probably won't be a DECIDING vote between the democrats or republicans, so how would you feel about voting for an independent merely because you think he/she is truly "right"?

Here's how I feel about it:

Obama thinks he's god and his people are trying to tell us how to run our lives, and the republican front-runners are too chicken shit to call him out on it for fear of being labeled "racist" by the mainstream media.

Yes I'm an independent and I will not being voting for Obama, just like in 2008.

Here's the real nitty-gritty: don't ever vote for anyone ever. All politicians are spawned from an evil dimension where children are born from the womb.... without their virginity!

2008 I voted third party because The person running new what he was talking about, and had a plan to shrink government. This year he is running for republican party.. Because as we have seen, Third party members do not get to be seen, and do not get to join in on the big public debates.

So 2012 I will vote for him again.. Because he still stands for the same things.. He has never flip flopped his plans,, Or lied to make people like him.. SO Dr. Ron Paul will get my support. Untill the day I run and rip apart this dirty sleezy government.

For the most part all these politicians are full of lies in my eyes. There is some truth, little as may be, but there is truth there in the words they speak when doing there campaigns. To me I go off the peoples background and past actions and bills they have been for or against but not alot of people look at that they just see what they are hearing most recently for the current runners. As far as all the "change" each candidate spouts about, look at how close it pertains to what policies are in effect as of now because "change" is not quick and it is not sudden. The farther away the "change" is pertaining to whats in effect now.....the longer it will take.
But as far as the candidates go none have my appeal yet......
