That's actually much closer to the truth.

I support one because he supports A, well, it does no one any good if he intends to screw you over on B through Z

These 1984 quotes summarize my feelings quite well:

"The citizen of Oceania is not allowed to know anything of the tenets of the other two philosophies, but he is taught to execrate them as barbarous outrages upon morality and common sense. Actually, the three philosophies are barely distinguishable."
- George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 9

"It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself--anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face...; was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime..."
- George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 5

"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed-if all records told the same tale-then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'"
- George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 3

"Nearly all children nowadays were horrible. What was worst of all was that by means of such organizations as the Spies they were systematically turned into ungovernable little savages, and yet this produced in them no tendency whatever to rebel against the discipline of the Party. On the contrary, they adored the Party and everything connected with it... All their ferocity was turned outwards, against the enemies of the State, against foreigners, traitors, saboteurs, thought-criminals. It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children."
- George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 2

You guys scare me. How can you not vote for anyone?

You all need to watch them answer a few questions and vote based off of that. Who answered the questions properly? Who was more charismatic? Who seems like he actually cares?

Please vote!!!!!!


How could you not be jaded by both parties by now? I put my fanboys spectacles away and im simply not going to vote. Im not a undecided either , im decided i dont like either.

My thoughts exactly. I feel as though I should revise the previous person's comments too.

"Who answered the questions properly?"----->"Who answered the irrelevant questions given by his party's compliant media friends as easy points properly?"

"Who was more charismatic?"----->"Who has a prettier face and swaying attitude, regardless of their mental ability? It's a fashion show, guys! They have to look good for the TV!"

"Who seems like he actually cares?"------>"Who seems like they can swindle you for the most money without you noticing? Who has their empathy dialed to 11 to get more power for his own narcissistic use?"

I'm voting for Obama, but for you people that aren't voting, you should ALWAYS vote. If you absolutely hate both choices, vote third party.

Third party candidates have no chances at winning, but unlike not voting at all, it makes your voice heard. If you dislike the way either parties match to your values, then vote for the party that most likely matches. Don't like the way the Republicans are, even though you're conservative? Consider the Libertarians. Think the Democrats aren't liberal enough for you? Vote for the Green Party.

When enough people vote third party, then it DOES influence the platforms of the major two parties. If the Green Party is stealing too many voters away from the Democrats, then the Democrats will shift their platform closer to the Green Party's in order to keep those voters. Likewise for the Republican Party. Don't ever throw away your chance to make your voice count, ALWAYS vote.

I'm voting for Obama...I wasn't planning too...

After what the GOP did to Ron Paul...Jeez.

Not only that, but Romney is a clueless rich boy that grew up with a silver spoon shoved deep in his arss. Seriously, he said the middle class average income is 250k...What kind of BS is that!?

Both parties are full of it.
Ron Paul isn't running.
4 more years of Obama for me.

No, but really if I could vote for them, I would probably vote for Obama. Both proved bad, when people do vote, it is for who is less worse then the other.

After reading through this thread, I have to wonder why I thought it would be wise to even click on the topic in the first place considering this website and discussions on past topics (even those not focused on politics)

Obama. I hate the fact that Mitt wants to take out abortion & planned parenthood. There are some people in the world who aren't as fortunate and may not be able to take care for the baby or afford to have a baby. Just seems selfish of him to do that. But anyways, I'm still too young to vote xD
