    Nice words but I don’t believe one of them. One must judge a man by his actions and not his rhetoric.Mr. Obama always had the right words but has always made the wrong actions. One has only to look at how the American constitution has been decimated and virtually nullified.The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)has destroyed Americans freedoms and made practically everyone a terrorist

    By law just about everybody is now a “terrorist”

    “Always made wrong actions” — really?

    But the 2012 NDAA is a travesty. We already know that Obama’s 2009 attempt to have Guantanamo closed went up in smoke. (Well, there was action there–an exectuive order–which didn’t come to much.) It would be good to know why (or who in) the administration felt that the terrorist detention language needs to be added. As we have come to learn, for better or worse, Obama picks his battles and therefore often disappoints.

    So, who ARE you voting for? Sure there are disappointments with Obama, as with all presidents i can think of in my life time(considerable), but what kinds of “disappointment” are in store if Romney gets elected? Would it not be better to work toward changing the few awful policies of Obama’s administration vs. a Pandora’s box of conservative BS unleashed by Rove and friends?

    An important reason to vote for the “lesser of evils” of candidates might be that by electing someone “less disappointing”, you shift the Overton window in a good direction. A counterargument may be that by supporting whatever it was that was disappointing, it’s being legitimized. But given a forced choice, I’m not sure what alternative one has. Not voting is definitely not a good idea, because it effectively splits your vote evenly.

    The situation is simple. Either Obama or Romney is going to be the next President. And the election will be very close no matter how you slice the numbers. Therefore if you do not vote for one of them (either by abstaining or voting for a third party candidate) you are effectively voting for the OPPOSITE of the one you WOULD choose if you had to pick one.

    Don’t let the “other guy” steal the election from your preferred choice between the two. Lesser of two evils, best of a bad choice, however you want to depict it, if you are a registered voter you WILL BE RESPONSIBLE for whoever wins one way or the other – so exercise your responsibility wisely.
