    It's not an option but for me it's someone without a stake in the game voting for wealth redistribution.

    Incidentally, they tend to be college students.

    No, not even close.
    That doesn't really matter, if consistency and equal treatment are of any concern. The top one percent of income earners pays around 40% of the federal income taxes, and around 50% pay no federal income tax, and a portion of those get earned income tax credits, without having even paid in. Imo, everyone should have an equal tax percentage debt period. Everyone should have some skin in the game, because if you're a recipient, and you can vote to have money from other people given to you, when you aren't contributing, then the system is corrupted already.

    The political illiterate. I have a friend who places himself above voting for a candidate. He didn't even know what Romney looked like until a few weeks ago (be it known that I post this at the end of October). If he does end up voting it will be for whomever the advertising tells him to vote for. It is quite sad.

    The only way for a poor or working poor person to avoid federal income tax is to make so little, their exemptions and deductions cover the entire amount. No one in receipt of any taxable income can avoid federal wage taxes, unless they earn enough to get over the social security ceiling.

    In many working poor families, the tax bill (total taxes) is 25% of total income or more.

    Show me a wealthy family paying more than 10%, and I'll eat my monitor.

    I wonder how many voters we have like this -- in such a close race, they may well choose our next president all by themselves.

    When Romney drops a nuclear bomb on Pakistan and we all die in a nuclear winter, I'll have your friend to thank.

    In my mind it's the uninformed voter, no matter who they are voting for.

    You're such a waste of time.

    Why would you even ask a question if you're just going to argue with everyone about every answer they give?

    There are MANY voters like this, Pinkie. Maybe not quite to the extreme of not knowing what the guy looks like, but definitely millions out there who have no clue of the RECORDS of either candidate, their platforms, what they stand for, etc....

    I worked the 1990 election in Connecticut. That was the first time the "party lever" was taken off the voting booths. You would have thought these people were asked to read candidate names in Swahili for all the complaints we heard about having to push down all the individual levers on a party's row in the booth. None of these people had the slightest idea who they were voting for, except for the R or D after their name.

    Re: Who Is The Crappiest American?

    I don't understand why #4 is an option.

    If both candidates are stupid, hackish and deceitful politicians... and neither of them share the majority of my beliefs... why should I vote? How about we the People get more options to vote for?
