I agree. This seems like the path of least resistance for third party candidates to have some influence.

I mean if he does, that's great. I just don't see it. It's wishful thinking.
im pretty sure moast of the voting mericans hate drugs and want them gone. they also love police. and police love going after drug dealers and feeling important.

ldo I want Obama to turn things around but what should make anyone feel confident that these next four years will be any different? I'm not saying Romney was clearly the better option (if at all), but Christ, tonight feels like a crowd storming the field after a first down in the 4th quarter when you're losing by 4 TD's.

I'm very happy the right-of-centre option up here isn't bound to religious fanaticism and does a pretty damn good job of keeping its focus on cutting red tape and keeping the economy strong.
dude bush effed this country woarst than any other prez oat. ldo obama didnt turn around that cluster****. not that he shud be elected bc he is at all competent. its just that hes not an evil nor as self serving as publicans.

relatively, nothing bad happened during obamas first term. i mean, merica didnt start any massive wars under false pretenses that cost billions of dollars and destroyed any pro-merica settlement.

Hahaha nice work. Keep trying to grab onto something.

Arguing about the effectiveness of polls doesn't exactly seem like a recipe for success and since we're talking about legalized/decriminalized marijuana, that's the drug that matters.

He got 49/49. Called Florida a 50.3% vs. 49.7% edge for Obama, which also seems probable to hold up (and either way he was basically right that it was a coinflip). Clean sweep.
