Those who chose Obama better take a closer look at NDAA, a bill he quietly signed on New Year's Eve while the world looked away.

But hey, if you want a military state, go ahead. I personally don't enjoy having my personal liberties cast into the fire. Indefinite detention, here we come.

Excuse me, sir, but you are interrupting my boredom.

If you are not a rich, white male and consider yourself a Republican, you just don't get it, my friends. Stay away from politics, because you have no idea what you're doing. You're doing it all wrong.

As far as voting. A, most people are ill-educated and unenlightened. You, as a single rational person, cannot possibly hope to single-handedly overcome the throngs of irrational. B, beyond the propaganda that may try to convince you otherwise, no election has ever been decided by one vote. Who ever wins will win whether you vote for them, someone else, or nobody at all. C, the U.S. is a Republic, not a Democracy. The President is elected by the Electoral College, not by "the people." The people voted for Al Gore, the Electoral College voted for George Bush. Al Gore went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize, while George Bush wasted 8 years fighting 3 wars, none of which could ever be won. The moral of this story is that voting is for suckers. I've never cast a ballot in my entire life, and hell will freeze over before I do.

The 2 party system is broken anyway, so I doubt the winner will matter. Nothing ever gets done, so what's the point? Politicians have all been bought off by rich Corporate lobbyists. Wall Street fat cats and hedge fund managers run this country. They alway have and always will. Capitalism is an exercise in inevitable failure. Karl Marx laughs at us all from his grave.

There are only 2 candidates. Obama and Romney. And even Republicans can't stand Romney, who is nothing more then an empty shill in an empty suit. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how this is going to end.

A debate about the NFL playoffs would be much more engaging.

I'm thinking four more years at the moment. The GOP candidates..not too many kind things I can say about their competence for office at the moment.
