    I don't either, but either Romney or Obama is going to win. No one else has a shot in hell. If my goal is to keep Obama out of the White House, I have only one choice: Romney.

    Recently started seriously considering the Libertarian party candidate.
    It won't stop Obama if you do. You have to decide what your actual goals are.

    But the only way they have any shot at actually winning, which I presume is their actual goal, they need a lot more money, and thus, a lot more corruption than they currently have. Right now, they might not sell you out but they can't win either.

    That's my problem.

    I have to decide if I dislike Obama enough to justify voting for Romney.


    There is no way in hell that I can think that Obama would get my vote though.

    Your post tells me that you're either a shill for the DNC, or that you haven't thought things through very well.

    The way you don't put up with the "bull****" is to ensure the current guy doesn't get a second run. That means you vote for the challenger with the best chance at winning. A vote for Jill Stein is a vote for Barack Obama because she doesn't have a snow ball's chance, and Mitt Romney does. It's already been established that Obama has the edge. You've essentially taken a vote away from the next best chance at winning. Way to show the Dems that you're not putting up with their bull****, anymore!

    I'm a Green because they recognize the disproportionate power of Corporations in this USA and because of their committed environmental concerns. If I thought this race was close enough that Romney might win, I would vote for Obama. I don't believe in the "give more money to the wealthy and they will do good things for general populace." That is a real figment of the imagination.

    Which makes you an Obama supporter and a crappy Conservative, as well. I'd rethink what I display as my political lean if I were you. Your comments are often way too Left.

    Re: Presidential Election: Who are you voting for or might/could you vote for?

    I’ve been exposed to a RIF that was based on religion and not on the value of the employee to the company. So Romney is much more into his religion being correct than Obama.
    In Arizona the Mormons in state government passed a law where one company was set up to install small propane fuel tanks in vehicles, fancy large family SUVs, to get dramatic tax advantages and benefits. This scheme was only to be known by the Good People of the East Valley. The people that installed them never put propane in them because it was too hard, took too long, too few places to do it, and the tank would only last about 50 miles; so they just used gas. It took about a year for this to become discovered by the general AZ public.

    Obama rescued the whole car industry including Ford etc. About 5 miles down the road are several companies that supply all the car companies certain types of parts. Losing Ford and Chrysler as customers would have shut them down even though Honda, GM, etc. are getting their parts from the same companies. The Romney bankruptcy process would have taken too long as it would have involved courtrooms, sales of assets, etc.

    I could be identified from behind at more than 15 feet by a CEO that made the front cover of Time. I’ve dealt with several CEO types. Vote for one as president? No way.

    So I’m voting for Obama.

    I'm voting for Romney. I can't stand Obama and I mainly want him gone.

    I'm voting for Gary Johnson. He is the candidate that holds my views and principles. I refuse to vote for any candidate that I don't believe in regardless of how "dire" this election seems to the left or right. I will not give my vote to Romney or Obama. They are tools and do nothing but pander to different audiences while lying through their teeth.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
