I would have agreed with you before the debate last night. Kinda odd you posted this after 95% of people have said Romney won the first debate hands down.

I think they will be stalemated, in terms of having a real impact. I don't think either candidate will really get much of a bump from these debates.

Unless Gary can "win" the state you are in, then the vote is somewhat "wasted." I put the word in quotes because there are exceptions to the rule. In New York State, for example, if you are a minor party you need to pull a certain percentage of the vote for Governor in order to continue being listed as a minor party. But those issues aside, there is the larger issue of the movement to do an end run around the electoral college by rigging the electoral college to the global popular vote. So even though you are in a large state that might always go one way, your vote the other way would be a vote among equals in the arguments of popular votes vs electoral college votes.


Well, there is the concept of matching funds where the party must get a certain portion of the popular vote to be able to receive additional funds from the government for elections.

Furthermore, if you are in a state such as New York, where polling shows that the president has a commanding lead over Romney, a vote for Mitt Romney would be just as wasted as a vote for Gary Johnson.


It is more of a wasted vote then, in my opinion, as it doesn't impact anything whereas a vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein could.

Here is the cherry video of Al Gore the scientist :lol: He describes what he is about to say as "controversial" but someone should tell him it's just plain stupid



I can't believe how many people have cracked up in the last 48 hours. I mean I can...but....WOW! :D

Listen to the bootlickers around him.... "Excatly!" and "oh, that's interesting!" You can tell they don't give a damn about whether it's true or not, all that matters if they have an excuse they can sell to sheeple in order to cover for Obama IE "do their job".

Why did Obama give his 2008 nomination acceptance speech in Denver if he's so affected by high altitude? Or was he ok that night because he was simply reading the teleprompter instead of being forced to defend his policies?

That depends. But even then, unless you are planning to go jump off the line for the other elections and vote for Gary/republicans for everything else your vote can have a coattail effect. There are several congressional races that are very close and can easily cause the Democrat to fall. NY1 is my area and the Democratic Candidate Tim Bishop is on the ropes. His victory was only by a hundred votes back in 2010.

Senator Gillibrand has a strong contender in Long. She can't fall back on her gender because her opponent is also a woman.

So it's absolutely vital that the Republican base gets their bottoms off of the chairs and goes to vote this year, even in NY.

Besides, I'm still hoping that this whole Big Gulp Revolution is going to turn NY Red this year.

I understand what you're saying. I'm saying we shouldn't limit ourselves to two parties in determining who we vote for. What influences your decision on who to vote for? Here's a partial list:

(1) The most charismatic person.
(2) The person that most conforms to your points of view.
(3) The political party of which you are a member.
(4) The person that is least like the person that you dislike.
(5) The person who you think will win.

So, my youngest sister voted for Obama in 2008 because it was her first election and because of (1) and (5). My brother and I will vote for Gary Johnson because of (2) and (3). My parents will vote for Mitt Romney because of (4). I think a lot of people vote for someone based on (4). Far be it for me to tell someone why they should vote, but I think (4) is a terrible reason to vote for someone. And that seems to be how a lot of people vote; for evidence, just look at Exhibit A (Phatscotty) and Exhibit B (political races which focus on negative things about candidates, rather than the candidates' plans themselves).

I'll be the first to admit, I'm getting old. I'm getting immune to political BS, from any party.

(1) Charisma is nice but only a modicum is needed. Any more turns the person into a self admiring twit who would do anything to remain popular. No way.

(2) Conforming to my point of view is important. But as a criteria other factors can trump it. This is especially true when you get to positions like POTUS.

(3) There are some people in my own party I am not particularly fond of. (I generally am not fond of those in the other party to a greater extent, however.)

(4) It's odd. The people I dislike are either flat out crooks (the previous supervisor of my town whose family was in the carting business was constantly making deals with sand miners to illegally cart sand in violation of all sorts of environmental laws ... would you believe he was a "Democrat?") or just flat old incompitent (the current congressman was previously the head of a college, while he used his position to hire his family he ran the college to the ground and as a result the college is no more). People who I am confident will "get the job done" will get my vote.

(5) Well that's silly. If I think he will win then my lone vote isn't going to do anything. It's whether or not I think he CAN win. That's not particulary easy to determine.

Well, you see, PS. When the government spends money, it creates jobs, which puts money in people's pockets. This money is spent on goods and services, and this gets the economy going. Couple that with printing money to lower interest rates, and you'll see that this economy has been booming after the recession ended in 2009.

I think this is the knockout blow that puts Romney over the top

Somehow, I don't find you a credible source.

I think it's been a good debate. And one thing I'll say for both of these guys is that they both seem FAR MORE PERSONABLE than either Obama or Romney did.

I think that to this point, Biden is doing better, but I don't think Ryan has done badly either.

The one area that Biden has really pissed me off, though, is that he KEEPS FUCKING INTERRUPTING! Stop that shit, Joe Biden. f*ck, man. It's disrespectful.

My favorite Biden moment is when he blamed the recession on the war in Iraq, but seems to think that real estate had nothing to do with it....

Very dishonest

I would have said yes but I'm 37 minutes into it now and Biden is coming across as more of a douche by sitting there chuckling at every answer Ryan gives.

Yup! That is what I have been noticing! But I also hear you in that many times I wish Ryan would have had a better comeback to Biden, like the example I edited into the previous post, but not in time
