My (mail-in) ballot is almost all filled out, all except the president box. Figure I’ll let the last debate equalize in my brain first. Not voting incumbent; but you probably already knew that. So the question is, has Mitt Romney proven to me that he isn’t effectively the same as Oby in several key areas, proven it enough that I’m willing to throw away my vote to him? I’m about ready to vote for Mr. Johnson, simply because he hasn’t CALLED ME FOUR TIMES A DAY FOR THE PAST TWO MONTHS–if there’s any indication that R’s are just as intrusive as D’s… isn’t living in a “Swing State” grand? Or should I vote for Rosanne Barr and Cindy Sheehan (not kidding, the Peace and Love party or somesuch). Incidentally, why are there so many different versions of Socialists on the ballot? They can’t decide how much worse they want things?
What a farce. When I see that we’re approaching 2 billion dollars spent on campaigns, and I think, “why couldn’t they show their good intentions and use that money to help pay off the debt instead?” and then I realize that 2 billion would be an insignificant drop in the bucket, unnoticed but by a few auditors in some featureless D.C. office building… reality has taken a break. Again, I’ll say, what a farce.
