I won't vote for capitalism, endless war, or endless rape of the environment, so no matter how anyone else feels about it: I'm voting Green this year. Live green, vote green. Vote good, vote green. No amount of twisted persuasion will change my mind.

Voting is both a privilege and a civic duty. On-line registration is available many places. If you are a student, got foreclosed on or moved since the last election or know someone who did--make sure you are registered and that they get registered--early/by mail voting begins in just a couple weeks in many places!

It's so important to speak out. Don't miss the opportunity or allow voter suppression tactics to victimize you. Thanks for the post, Carrie!

Barb, for health and other reasons we have voted absentee for many years. That certainly doesn't mean that we and all those others who vote by absentee ballot are not voting. Where did you get the impression that absentee ballot voters are not voting?

I have never missed a vote either in a local.state,special, primary or general election and I don't intend to this year. I even went to my county election board to make sure my registration was correct and updated. Vote!! " Democracy is not a spectator sport". Thanks Carrie. Read, noted and shared.

"My Friends,

Please forward far and wide! Those of you who choose to throw your vote away to a third party candidate, please have the courtesy to forward this message, so those of us who care about the outcome of this election and want a candidate who will not rape us, have a chance.

Hugs, Carrie"

A vote for a corporate candidate is a vote for continued rape of the American people, of our political system, and of the environment. Anyone who is voting for either of the corporate candidates is, in fact, the one who is actually throwing their votes away.

If you cared about the outcome of this election, then you would be urging as many people as possible to rebel against the status quo, to fight against corporate politics, and to vote Green. Apparently, you are the one who doesn't really care about your country, much less its future.

Brian, I care that Mitt Romney does not win because of some foolish idealistic people who are trying to make a point. While you and some others are "trying to get your point across", how many many will suffer because of your idealism?

OBAMA: Asking to wait more time to SOLVE ALL THE PROBLEMS the US HAVE
& HAD when HE was ELECTED

He is only a Politician, and a good Politician, NOT A SAINT THAT CAN MAKE MIRACLES!!!!!!!
To SOLVE ALL PREVIOUS American problems that he was facing when just elected

Ingrid A. If you read all of the stories pertaining to the Republican attack on women's' rights, there should be no question in the mind of any intelligent woman of whom to vote for. A third party vote would be a wasted vote simply because no one knows who they are. As such, they could not likely do anything but take votes away from the other candidates. The question would be, "which one?"

It is important to vote. It is not just a right guaranteed by the constitution, but it is your duty.

If you are having trouble keeping track of the party platforms (Democratic and Republican), have a look at this side-by-side analysis that appeared on TomCat's Open Thread 22/09/2012. Here's the link:

Some don't like the choice between Democrats and Republicans, preferring to go Justice Party or Green Party. But these last two parties are not viable YET! They need grassroots building which takes time. I am a Canadian and we have 3 national parties and one regional party at the federal level. I have seen what happens with the vote split. Look at Canada with Conservative Party Stephen Harper as PM when he only had a 39.6% popular vote. That comes down to vote splitting and an electoral system that is 'first past the post wins'. We are now suffering with that arrogant SOB.
Don't split your vote in 2012 and work to keep feet to the fire and buiolding the grassroots that are needed.

Get out the vote!!!!!

Vote Democratic 2012!!!!! Vote Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!

I have NEVER missed my chance to VOTE in ANY election since I was 18 years old = a L-O-O-O-N-G time ago = and my very 1st was for JFK !!! OBAMA
Sorry to say though, The horrid Electoral College may really throw the TRUE VOTES AWAY due to redistricting.
