The alternative, Stuart, is to plant your hooves and refuse to go gently into the night...

Just remember Kenny, as bad as Romney is, he is 10 times better than Obama. Romney is the only candidate with a chance in hell of beating Obama. So to vote for any other candidate, or to stay at home and not vote is for all practical purposes a vote for Obama. So no matter how much it may trouble you, you MUST vote for Romney or accept the fact YOU helped reelect Obama. Oh yeah, FUCK Obama!

Naw, I ain't buying into that 'you kept Obama in office' bullshit.
You keep saying there's no other choice but if people like you would quit drinking that kool-aid and vote for the third party then they would stand a chance and you would have another choice.
If you DON'T vote for the third party then you're just perpetuating your own misery.
So there.

I think as a outsider when i see republican and democrats they look pretty much the same to me. I see 2 guys gettin a lot of money from lobby and the financial elite for there election. But when Romney or Obama get elected they dont give a fuck about you cause they owe them money not to you.

You still have a choice... read read...read your constitution learn your law learn how banks work, learn history of your country etc.

Just to show you how its fucked up: we leave in sociaty that work with law and regulation but they dont teach you law in school but the elite and lawyer know the law very well and know how to use it againts you.

Here ya' go:

Best pitch is, "if you don't like living free and in peace, then you can vote tyranny back in four years later." (paraphrased of course).

It always causes a smile to creep ear to ear when someone 'gets it'. Love the toon.

Let's live in the real world guys, I'll make it real simple. Let's all vote for Gary, he would be great. But how many votes will he get even if all of us free thinkers vote for him? 3-4%? Those votes would be enough to defeat Obama. So if you vote for Gary your conscience may be clean, but you will still be stuck with Obama, and the rest of us will just look at you and say thank you very much. You KNOW, and I mean KNOW that there is no chance in hell for anyone other than Romney to beat Obama. If you think otherwise, let's make a $10,000 bet and see who laughs all the way to the bank. I welcome all takers.

"Us free thinkers"? I think you like to think you're a free thinker but your arguments are saying something else.
All my life I kept hearing about how shitty it is that we only have two parties to choose from, but guess what? It's you, the voter, that determines that there is a two party system in place. If all of "us free thinkers" stood up and said "FUCK YOU" and actually voted our conscience then there wouldn't be a two party system, would there?
Don't try to bullshit me and say the presidential race is too critical this time around to do that - EVERY presidential race that I have seen so far has also been 'too critical'.
There comes a time when a man has to stand up, say that he's had enough, and choose his own path. I started when I was 20 years old.
