  • If you don't support Obama, then you don't care about women, black people, gays, and you support Mitt Romney

  • If you don't support Romney, then you are a dirty hippy 47% dependent on government socialism who doesn't care to take care of yourself and supports Obama.

Polar extremes of moron democrats and republicans using fearmonger propaganda to get you to support their corporate sponsored candidate. I've seen this and have basically been told this by both sides. (not calling all democrats and republicans the moron polar extremes.... this is specifically aimed at the extremists on this forum. If you do not agree with one of the first 2 positions I pointed out, then you are not one of the extreme propagandists.)

No thanks. I'm not voting to bomb countries in 2013, Obama and Romney plan on bombing countries in 2013. I'm not voting to give unlimited resources to Wall Street in 2013, Obama and Romney support the current monetary policy which does exactly that. I'm not voting to continue spying on Americans and grope them when they travel, Obama and Romney do not have any plans to reduce this in anyway and both support the Patriot Act. I'm not voting to continue growing the world's largest prison population, neither Romney nor Obama have anything on their agenda to reverse drug laws that have been abused to fill prisons with blacks and latinos. I'm not voting to continue covering the tracks of the Bush administration's illegal activities, ACLU was nice enough to point out the secrecy and suppression of information that could have been used to possibly indite Bush for war crimes. Privatizing the military! It's a fact! These are not the reasons I vote.

I will be voting for candidates that do not want to bomb countries in 2013. That do not want to give unlimited resources to Wall Street. That do not want to continue putting non-violent Americans in jail or prison for crimes that are not even crimes. Candidates that are pushing for a minimum wage increase and true reform in our biased election process.

I am my own person. I do not do things because "everyone else is doing it"

You can take your fearmonger propaganda and shove it.

Good post, Trevor. I've seen the accusations thrown at you almost daily and it's borderline ridiculous. You most certainly have been consistent in your views, and anyone who doesn't see that is completely blind.

When I first joined this site.... the republicans were all like "Get a job and take a bath."

Now most of them are gone and it's the democrats giving me a hard time telling me "You are a closet republican who secretly supports Romney"

LOL wow this forum has changed over the past year.... but my posts remain on the same issues.

I have a feeling they will allow Occupy to appear to be helping just long enough for everything to go their way. The mass isn't able to join this because we haven't made it easy enough for them. People who want nothing more than to keep enjoying the comforts of their daily life are not going to try anything which is difficult. They are easily going to ignore that which is uncertain.

yeah and the brutality and mass arrests probably scared a lot of people from wanting to get involved too.

Right, lots of fear, everything from murderous terrorists to being at the wrong end of your countries own guns. Smoke and mirrors, playing the impressions, and it's effective, words against words. Who are blind people going to follow? The protesters who try saving flowers or the deadly serious and official government?

They can play this game all day, every day. I think if we are ever going to have democracy stop this corruption we need to unite all of our scattered efforts into one thing. One thing that everything else stops and points to, like the point of a spear with everyone behind it. I don't see how anything else is going to penetrate this landslide of manipulated barricades.

If we had the full understanding of the mass we could even beat them at their own voting game.

No leaders meant Dem campaigners had to wait in line like everyone else....I think they gave up coopting it about the same time all the bad press started coming out. "They aint down? Then ruin em"...

What mutherfucking ever.

That's the way I feel when people do one of the 2 things I mentioned.

I have no problem with people voting for who they want or telling me their candidate is better than an opponent.... or debating facts and issues.

I'm just asking people to not call me a dirty hippie or a racist or blame me for all the problems in the world because I'm not voting for their candidate.

Both have happened on this forum and in my everyday life... all because I openly announced I am voting Jill Stein for president and argue on behalf of people like her because she supports a living wage, medicare for all, and reforming laws to reduce our ever growing world's largest prison population that houses millions of non-violent Americans who have committed no real crime.

People also think I'm throwing my vote away? How is that? Why would I vote for someone I despise just because I despise someone else? I'm voting for someone I actually like and respect and feel actually represents me and not Wall Street and War.

Tell me more about the WMD threat from Iran maybe? It's all just lies and it's come from the 2 corporate sponsored guys. Not falling for it.
