    Yeah, what a stupid thing to say. Cut funding to PBS. An organization who receives the lion's share of its funding from private contributions and corporate sponsorships. *Shaking Head* Can't cut there. Give me a break.

    You didn't have an option I could vote for, so I'll just explain my thinking. I'm pretty much a die-hard Republican. I don't think I've ever voted for a Democratic president in my lifetime. This time, it was going to be hard. I'd begun to believe the lies about Romney. Thanks to DP, and thanks even more to the debates, I am now much more confident in my choice. That's a win. Glad I watched,

    Sure because Lord knows we need channels with more Kardashians and Jersey Shore people on them. By the way, there are a ton of stupid things you say that I try to be at least polite about. It is not a matter of can or cannot. It is my vote. I can use it however the hell I want.

    Fisher, my "stupid thing to say" wasn't directed at you. It was directed at Romney, as in, "Yeah, what a stupid thing for Romney to say." I'm sorry you inferred I meant you.

    I'm sure I say stupid things, Fisher. Feel free to point them out with impunity. Others certainly do.

    Nope. Just reinforced my belief that the debates are meaningless and that Obama and Romney are essentially the same guy

    I knew who Obama was before Obama made the primary in 2008, I knew his policies, I knew what he stood for, and I knew I could never support him. It was pretty clear, and is why I don't respect undecided voters at all. It's pretty easy for anyone of reasonable intelligence to choose who to vote for, that some people take a long time only demonstrates a mental deficiency.

    After Obama won, I knew he would run again in 2012. Given the 2-party system there's only one person left I have the option to vote for: whoever opposes Obama automatically had my vote, regardless of who that turned out to be.

    Get ready for all the trolls to start telling you that somehow you no longer have a right to complain about anything...
