Forum Post: You have more than two options this November

We have the power to break the Military Industrial Political Financial stranglehold on America. Voting for the same two parties will insure it's grip grows tighter.

Don't let the media tell you who to vote for! Decide for yourself.

See who supports your candidate here:

Click the contributions tab to see what they receive directly. But dig deeper to see who also pays for elections. It's outside money. Remember Citizens United? The result were Super PACS that have no contribution limits. Why vote for someone who benefits from the inequality of Super Pacs? Democracy is rule of the people, not rule of who contributes the most money.

Here is one of Romneys Super Pacs:

Here is one of Obama's Super Pacs:

Obama and Romney are not the only people running. Rocky Anderson, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, and Buddy Roemer are some of the more well known candidates for President that get little to no press in the coming election.

Check them out and others here:

It is not a battle between right and left! It is a battle between freedom and injustice. Vote for freedom and justice!

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure." ~Thomas Jefferson

Voting Democratic or Republican and thinking you will change anything is the insanity of doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Voting third-party in elite-controlled elections with rigged voting machines and predetermined outcomes guaranteed by judicial overrides is - at best - feel good mental masturbation.

Doing nothing guarantees defeat.

I never suggested doing nothing, Grasshopper. In case you missed it, there's a Global Revolution in progress: Embrace it, and the REGIME CHANGE that is coming with it.

And where does one find out about this revolution in case they decide to embrace it?

Join the Occupation nearest you. If you found this forum, you can find them. If there isn't an Occupation near you, then start one. And hurry the fuck up: We gotta big day coming up Tuesday...

Already in an Occupy group and will be there Tuesday.

Saying there is going to be regime change holds as much air as Obama's promise to close Guantanamo. It will take more than just talk to achieve change. What actions will you take to insure it's outcome?

You need to think more and type less...

We need to take more action.
