What real difference does who you are voting for make anyway?  You have no real notion of what sort of person they are, with all the public relations and hoopla and hype that goes on.  The only time elections make sense is in caucuses where all the participants have worked together a long time.

You do have a point Frank. Although I think I do trust the libertarians and independents and tea-partiers more. :P

Unfortunately lots of times, especially on the local level, the only thing on the ballot is either Dem or  Rep.   :(   :(   :(
Then offer up the protest vote and refuse to vote.  "Not voting" is interpreted to be a silent non-event that doesn't register and nobody notices.  Not if we're loud and proud about it.

Vote for independents. Keep the republicans and democrats out of office.
That's the idea.  ;)

Before I invite a rash of likes from the partisan Republican members of this forum on a Topic Title with that much political red meat, I should add some disclaimers.  I'm not the poster on this board who relies on anti-Obama content on a regular basis nor do I focus on the damage Obama is doing to my life and liberty because the threat to our liberty isn't contained by any single administration much less any single branch of government.   What I do see on a regular basis are violations of our rule of law from all three branches.  A derelict bipartisan Congress shirking their duties and spending money on anything else but, a hyperactive power hungry Executive playing the role of all three branches of government at once.   Barack Obama is nowhere near even half the problem we face as a nation so anyone who thinks that Barack Obama should be the focus of nearly all of our attention can't even recognize the problem correctly thus are completely useless people to listen to in any honest attempt to solve it.

Republicans proved the failures they are in protecting the rule of law under George W. Bush, setting dangerous new precedents for our country that continue today.   Democrats proved the failures they are in protecting the rule of law under Barack Obama, using precedents set by past Presidents to put our freedom on a course of accelerated erosion.  I won't get fooled again into thinking Republicans won't fail me again when the red team is back at the switch.   I don't need proof twice from the red team to acknowledge their total failure as a political body already proven once.   So anyone who spends their time and word count doing little more than going after Barack Obama is no trustworthy ally of mine in defending the Constitution.   Partisanship is the cancer that's destroying our liberty, our power, our prestige, our rule of law and our security all at once.   Not Al Qaeda, not the Taliban, or other militants hiding in caves thousands of miles from our shores.  Not even government itself.  But you, the partisan voters of this country who get the exact government that you deserve.

Republicans and Democrats are the real enemy of the United States.   Republicans for starting the most disgraceful unforgivable violations of the Constitution seen in the US today, and Democrats for proving themselves the fools they are for continuing them.  There's no partisan hole you can hide in on my thread.   There's no rock you can hide behind here.   If you can't admit where the most egregious crimes of the Obama administration came from, you'll be wearing the dirt you're dumping on him.

I kinda liked it too.  If 90+% of the voting bloc doesn't, I consider that validation.

Apartisanship should pass the spell check.

"Apartison" doesn't pass the spell check because we already have a perfectly good word for it, "nonpartisan."

One thing I think is kinda dumb about all the above very partisan rhetoric.  Obama is not a hypocrite.  Name-throwing like that only reveals a knee-jerk, emotional, mentality, not any sort of serious mindedness.

Okay, so give me some examples of nonpartisan US policies today.

Obama is a world champion of hypocrites.  George W Bush was the former titleholder.  He only bombed four countries, and wasn't a Nobel Peace Prize winner.   When you're a victim of Obama's bombs you'll understand how serious minded it is too.

What makes all the difference?   Hypocrisy (plus not getting caught).
