If you vote third party, you're effectively throwing your vote away. Whether you like to hear it or not, whether you believe it or not; That's what you're doing.
#105 to #85 - Common Pepe (11/06/2012) [-]
Not really, because if an independent receives more then 5% of the vote, they are considered a major political party and will receive funding from superpacs, which will make future elections have more options, not just another lesser of two evils election, and as more independents become major parties, it will destroy political parties and candidates can run for what they believe in, not what their party believes in.

Yes, but voting third party also gives you an extra option. I would personally prefer to vote a third party that actually has good points and "promises" than voting for the lesser of two evils. I'm not contributing to the country going down the ******* by voting for the bad guy, (hint: that's both Obama and Romney.)

forgive my ignorance, but does america only have 2 parties you have to vote for? or is it simple 2 huge parties and the smaller ones don't get a say?

democrats and republicans just about as long as we've had presidents, there are other parties that everyone overlooks

from someone who lives on the other side of the world's perspective, Romney sounds like such a dumb **** who says he knows how the fix everything but won't tell you how- because in reality, he has no idea. But, maybe he only looks like a dumb **** because he's a republican and republicans are really conservative and it's not my cup of tea. It could also be because i live on the other side of the world- god knows what the rest of the world thinks about Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott.
3rd parties might not have a lot of power right now but, in 10, 20 years, more people will vote for them because we're finally starting to see the ******** the two party system feeds us.

Vote third party
Or Ron Paul
Who is technically third party
#106 to #61 - Common Pepe (11/06/2012) [-]
Ron Paul isn't running. He's off the ballot this year. Ron Paul himself said to vote for Gary Johnson this year, they see eye to eye in the majority of their platform and both believe the constitution needs to be withheld completely.
User avatar #254 to #106 - theluppijackal ONLINE (11/06/2012) [-]
I'm voting for a write in candidate then

so, here's the deal. I'm not voting at all this year. here's why:

Romney: I have heard so much against this guy i think it's a miracle he's even made it this far to begin with. I've seen interviews where his would-be vice president came right out and essentially called everyone in the united states idiots (when asked about numbers that support his claims that under his kim jongistration, he said something along the lines of, "I have them, but i don't think you'd understand them.") most importantly, the man came right out and said that his campaign "would not be dictated by the words of fact-checkers." this being said after it came out that most of his campaign was based around half truths and outright lies. Vote for Romney, you vote for a liar who thinks you're too stupid to realize he's lying.

Obama: The only thing this man is guilty of is promising too much (which is also EXACTLY what Romney is doing right now). I have yet to hear a single decent argument against Obama that doesn't boil down to something that isn't even his fault. There are even people out there who said he illegally engaged in acts of war without congress approval... seriously? Did you guys even TRY to pay attention in high school? Despite that, i still feel that he should not be re-elected simply because he would have too much opposition from people who fail to make informed decisions and base their opinions off extremely biased sources because they're too lazy to do the research themselves.

BTW, that last part will be true for Romney too... At this point he could promise the world, but without congress on his side, he'll get just as far as Obama has and people will hate him four years from now.

implying that you're not biased as well   
   
just as you can't understand why would someone vote for romney, there is also a HUGE chunk of the US who doesn't understand why would anyone vote for obama   
when someone doesn't share your opinion it doesn't mean that they are biased and you're not, or that you're biased and he's not, it means that BOTH of you are biased.   
   
also if you think of a politician as flawless or you think he's bad in every sense, it means that you're missing information   
   
as to who i'll vote, its no one cause i aint american

The saddest part about Obamas campaign this time, is he fell the the level of the Repuplicans... Four years ago when McCain started the **** storm against him, and Donald Trumb went along with all that "show us birth certificate ******** ". He remained calm and decent. But this year the democrats campaign have been the same "Lets just make repuplicans look stupid" instead of actually showing their own political belieifs and ideas.

What happened to Ron Paul? From what I saw, the internet was really rooting for him at some point, now we seem to be back to the shinier of two turds...
#62 to #47 - ancano ONLINE (11/06/2012) [-]
That is because Ron Paul is a ******* joke of a person. No one who still has an ounce of sanity will be voting for him.

The internet never actually liked Paul.....
User avatar #68 to #67 - xtnega (11/06/2012) [-]
Oh? That's not what I remember, but whatever. Well, he seems better than the other two running for parliament, why the hate?
User avatar #69 to #68 - ancano ONLINE (11/06/2012) [-]
Well, first off, lemme ask you a question that should answer your own:

What about Ron Paul makes him a viable presidential candidate?
User avatar #70 to #69 - xtnega (11/06/2012) [-]
The reason I brought him up was the way he predicted our current global predicament in 2002, that was impressive in my eyes, as well as his ideals on honesty, free markets and all that fun stuff. Though I'm not sure what you're trying to get at here...
User avatar #71 to #70 - ancano ONLINE (11/06/2012) [-]
He wasn't the only person to predict the housing bubble, but you wouldn't want Ben Bernike to run for office.
He is honest, but his morals are wrong. (look at the picture)
Government regulations on businesses have been saving this economy. With laissez-faire our economy would be worse off because there would be no bail out for american companies. Any politician who thinks of getting rid of such regulations is a shyster of a politician who cares not for the common people and only for himself.
User avatar #73 to #71 - xtnega (11/06/2012) [-]
The housing bubble? Have you seen the video? He goes into lots more than just that.
How can morals be wrong? That's an opinion.
I cannot say anything on your third comment, as I have no background in business, but where did this laissez-faire come from? A free market is one where the companies control their prices, not the government. A laissez-faire market would be one without taxes, is it not?
User avatar #74 to #73 - ancano ONLINE (11/06/2012) [-]
I get that, but he isn't the only one.
His morals are wrong from a Socially Relativistic point of view, meaning that they violate cultural norms.
Laissez-Faire means "hands off" meaning that the government will not intervene in any aspect of business. It is a foundation of free market economies.
User avatar #270 to #74 - xtnega (11/06/2012) [-]
One could argue both ways for the moral debate, and I'd rather not get into a pro-life vs pro-choice debate, they never end well... But at least he gives the state the right to choose for itself, there are 'worse' candidates by this standard.
And at this point, I have nothing to say on the free market at this point either, I would have to get to know the field better before I go and make myself out to be a complete fool, well at least it was interesting to get someone else's opinion on it anyway.

Obama talks about change, but it won't happen.I never see those acts of "change".
Mitt, America is a company for Mitt.All he cares is income, not you nor me.
Ron Paul, he is a good man, a very good thinker, and he offers the best solutions.

Not really. I don't really affiliate myself with any of the parties. I just looked at all of the candidates positions on the issues I thought were relevant, and picked the one that was the most similar to my own.
