Here in the United States of Amnesia, money is speech and corporations are persons. They have a lot more money than we do; they have a much louder voice than we have; they are far more organized than we are. It’s their system, they bought it and they own it. You are trying to change their system by working within their system against their best interests. We tried that already, many times, and guess what, it does not work. So this is the great power of the two-party system: The Republicans are in charge of promoting the interests of the transnational corporate rulers and pushing it as far as they can. The Democrats’ job is to control the people so that no meaningful opposition ever arises. And those are very different tasks and why they appear as very different parties – but they serve the same monied interests and they actually work together as a team to create utter confusion in America, as is evidenced by the blatant ignorance of those who still advocate participating in an entirely corrupt system.

It's people NOT participating that allows the corruption to happen. That's why privatization of public services such as education, the military, jails, ect is so dangerous is because the average citizen has no voice nor recourse in a privatized system. We, the People are the governing organism. By not voting you surrender your power.

I'm stoked you're voting Botany, but remember- only one vote per citizen.

Still time for others to vote Yes on 30! Capps. No on 32.

Here in our Nations Capital, the choice is the same as it was four years ago, choose the best of the worst, or "Lesser of the Two Evils". Just think, who ever wins will either push the Government Budget cuts back another Four years or accept them and be known as the President who had the Highest Unemployment rating of all time (27.9%), when Six hundred Fifty Thousand Government Contract employees will loose their jobs with the Federal government. For those who don't work directly with the Federal Government, ask yourself and your boss, does our Company support or are affected by any part of any Government? Local, State or Federal? Or any other Company that supports the Federal Government?
The Number is not just the immediate employees but the company's that support the Federal Contracted employers/companies, in otherwords 6.5K unemployed government contractor plus all the support staff for the companies and the sub-contracted companies are affected,; thus leaving the entire number floating around the 5.8 Billion mark of unemployed, that comes to 62.6% unemployed.
I guess either Obama or Romney will have to deal with that 800lb Gorilla?
