Is your mind made up on who you will vote for?

Posted by   + Show Post

Are you 100% decided or are there things that could change who you will vote for between now and November?

 I don't care for any of them - undecided.

Have you checked out any of the third party candidates?

Jan

Thanks for that reminder, I know, personally, that is on my list of things to do, right after I deduce the feasibility of going to the moon via rubber band power.

While my post was directed toward Della529 as she had expressed a lack of enthusiasm for the candidates and thus an indecision as to who she was supporting, I realize this is an open forum and everyone is free to comment on any of the posts.

That said, I am amazed at your willingness to admit your lack of open mindedness when it comes to learning more about third party candidates. Gaining information on those involved in the political process is never an inappropriate or wasted effort.

Jan

You will find no one more opened mind ( or pragmatic) than I.

Let's say that you are in a pool drowning, your friend wants to hand you a floatie, you are not sure about floaties. You tell her that you are very open minded about products that might save your life. You say, please hand me a piece of concrete. In her closed minded state she says the concrete won't help.  You say, I am very open minded, hand me a brick. In her closed minded state she says, a brick will not help.  You say I am very open minded, please hand me a piece of steel. In her closed minded state, she says a piece of steel will not help.

You drown. The end.

While I have not see that open minded nature in many of your comments here in the Elections 2012 Group, perhaps you are in real life and via other venues.

And following up on your analogy here ... "Let's say that you are in a pool drowning, your friend wants to hand you a floatie, you are not sure about floaties. You tell her that you are very open minded about products that might save your life.."

I would suggest that as an open minded person, I would be game to try the floatie ... and trust (or at least consider the valuable nature of) my friend's suggestion.

Aparently  not, because you have your feet firmly planted in cement shoes that will not only drown you, but will take the country down with you.

Every vote that is not a vote for Romney will translate to a vote for Obama.

My personal choice is Mitt Romney. Yes he is an extremely wealthy man but because of that he doesn't need help with campaign funding and therefore will not owe any favors after he gets elected. He's a self-made man and knows how to deal with enormous amounts of money to make more money. We need someone to get us out of the debt that the last several Presidents have gotten us into. I also hope we get some term limits on members of congress and not let them hold office until they drop dead. Time for new blood and a lot of new things that will bring our country back to the great nation it was.

I would suggest that voting for a presidential candidate who respects the founding principles of our Republic (and thus the limitations the constitutution sets on the federal government's size and scope) is the way to go if in fact your desire is to truly save this country.

I would also suggest that a Romney Administration will offer no real change from an Obama Administration (even though they may vary to a degree on some issues) and thus a vote for either of these two candidates is a vote for less individual freedom and the continued growth of government.

 Barack is my man; he was in 2008, and he is now...he didn't have time to get anything done before the 2010 fiasco.  Even Boehner couldn't work with that crowd...

 We do need to start looking out for #1...as the old saying goes, you can't help anyone until you help yourself..and we aren't helping ourselves..wars, charities, etc. Meanwhile, I am having WWIII with the VA trying to get help.  My PTSD husband STABBED ME IN OUR KITCHEN.  He is sitting on 3K a month IN JAIL and I have to rewrite the Constitution to get his money, but I am doing it.  It's ridiculous, and they tell me it's getting worse.  Although the media is saying "Iraqi and Afghanistan" vets, the Vet Hotline says no, just Afghanistan -- they're coming back with PTSD "BIG TIME" and they don't know why...but we're getting ready to see all hell break loose.

So, if they don't know what to do with a Vietnam Veteran who's been diagnosed for years, what are they going to do when  an undiagnosed Afghanistan Vet who flips out in DAYS?

As I said, look out for #1!!!

I miss my first husband . . . terribly!  He died of an Agent Orange related cancer, but he was in Thailand, so it "doesn't apply."  I am losing husbands right and left to a war that ended decades ago.  And my 15yo son, who saved my life by the way, is losing fathers...

Yes I have... I say NO to Obama. Didn't vote for him the first time and damn sure am not voting for him this year. America is no place for his socialist policies!

To be honest I dont like any of the candidates all that much. I think they all have problem areas. I feel like Romney may have too much money to really relate to the American people and what we are feeling but I do feel he's the lesser of to evils so he's got my vote.
