Default Nit picking in this election.

I am getting totally fed up with the constant nit picking in the presidential election by both sides but mainly the Dems. For crying out loud, gas is way too expensive, Milk costs $5 a gallon and continues to go up, and their talking points are Big Bird and Binders. Lets get serious! Neither are worth a damn but voting for anyone else but these two clowns, is just a wasted vote IMO.

We need to dump this two party system and make some room for people who are willing to get something done and not just cater to lobbyists and their own party.

Obama looks and acts like a late night talk show host and Romney reminds me of an insurance salesman shoveling manure. Wake up people, we deserve better!!!

You want the govt. to intervene? Anyway, inflation, climate change and population growth. The real issue is income levels for the working and lower middle classes.

I agree, I've pointed out how this can be done numerous times but its too difficult, doesnt respect the constitution blah blah blah

The problem is that any time a third party comes along and gets support its platform is co-opted by one of the major parties and its backers get absorbed. I have no clue how you fix that.

Proportional Representation and cohesive parties is how.

Just mailed my absentee ballot in (absentee due to disability). First time I have voted since voting for Jimmy Carter (I was young and VERY stupid). That gave me a bad taste in my mouth, and that's why I haven't voted since.

There are some things on the ballot (locally) that I feel strongly about so I felt I should voice my opinion. I was an election judge for several elections and kinda forgot how good it feels to vote.

I've heard your proportional representation proposal and it involved scrapping the entire Constitution and starting from scratch. I don't think that's realistic at all. Parties do their own thing. If they don't stick together that's on them.

So what if the constitution has to be adjusted? Its just a constitution.

Well I have noted you don't seem to think any change is realistic at all yet constantly complain about the current system and simply blame individuals.

In the US they don't. Individual politicians do in America.
