Just because both Romney and Bush suck ass doesn't mean they're identical. Telling an undecided to not worry about the nuances is still an uninformed opinion.

Again, when Romney laid out his plan at the convention, it was identical to George Bush's.

No, they aren't the same person, and yes there's more to it than that. I'm talking about when you pare things down to their basest form for people who won't be looking this up, whether they're too busy, apathetic, lazy, what have you. They aren't going to make an informed decision but the simplest way it can be summarized is that it's a choice between the last four years or the eight before that.

If you truly and genuinely have no concept of what either candidate stands for, you probably shouldn't be voting at all. I get that people are busy. But it really is as simple as "should we stay on the track of the last four years, or should we go back and try George Bush's policies again?"

What about those of us voting third party?

I don't really see why you would ever vote for a third-party candidate in a presidential election. I mean I'm sure you've heard it all before but even disregarding policy for a minute, if you can honestly say that you don't have a preference over which candidate would do the appointing of Supreme Court judges, the head of the EPA, head of the DEA, etc then I guess all power to you but I really doubt that is the case.

I was talking about undecided voters. Some will probably go the "none of the above" route but most are going to try to find a reason to vote for either Obama or Romney.

Voting for a third party candidate doesn't mean you don't have a preference when it comes to the major party candidates.

I would assume it means that preference isn't large enough to risk giving one of them the election, but voting third-party doesn't mean you just couldn't decide between the major parties.

Yeah, this thread's taken a little turn for the worse recently.

I can't believe people are saying that if you haven't decided who you're voting for, you're lazy and you're stupid. I guess the 'catty arrogance' part of this thread is active.

The reason I'm voting third party is because I'm not disregarding policy. I like neither candidate enough to vote for them, and I want to show support for policies I do like.

The Supreme Court appointment is a good point, there are a lot of important cases coming up. There are a number of checks with agencies so those appointments are not as big of a deal as some people make it. But its not like I haven't thought of and weighed these things. I just find it important to cast a vote for a candidate with policies I want to see supported.

Could it be that bird man is what was holding us all together? A common enemy that unites us all watchmen style?
