    Voting third party is never a wasted vote. It's ironic that people spend so much time complaining about the two-party system then never vote third party even when there are candidates they like.

    You might have missed my sarcasm. The people that run the corrupt two (one) party system want us to believe that third party options are a waste of time.

    That's because they have absolutely no idea how politics work at the state level in New York. "Three Men in a Room" and "a few issues" doesn't constitute working with "both parties."
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The wolves are out in force. Christie's politucal antagonists could accuse Christie of being a part of the Einsatzgruppen in Poland and the Libbos would jump on it like white on rice.

    no one would make that comparison on such a false premise without prooving that the comparison is 100% valid.

    Humans in general are all dirty, the question is to what degree. I try and put myself into the position of a politician handling various issues and understand why they do this or that. A lot of times you can see that they're probably just trying to make the best of a bad situation and they really had no choice but to do something kind of slimy.

    This however is ridiculous as he's just pushing his weight around stomping anyone that gets in his way. That's the way he operates as a political strategy. This is not damage control of a tragedy or trying to fluff an unfortunate reality the public would rather not know about.

    Its eerily similar to Bush, Valerie Plame, "I'm the decider", "you're either with us or against us". I don't want somebody like that running the country again.

    That's how these people operate, all or nothing. He's a bulldog and he will go down in flames while holding up a middle finger to his critics.

    What shocks me is how easily people are fooled by his straight arrow "owning" of the scandal. Confidence is a powerful drug and he has an abundance of it, to go out there for two hours and put on a show completely denying everything whatsoever. But that's what sells for most Americans, style over substance. Gut feelings over logic. Emotion over reason.

    Why make that comparison when we can just point to what his administration is actually doing, right now, like what this thread is about?

    if any nazi comparisons are to be made, the comparison has to be valid.
