Do the candidates really pay attention to us?

I've aways wondered if the candidates ever pay much attention to what is being said by the political analysts, reporters, and people like you and me. Or do they just pay attention to the polls? I think that if they give some thought to what we are saying instead of just trying to convince us to vote for them, they may have a better chance of winning. What do you think?

If they actually cared about us, they would be talking about unemployment, the price of groceries, the price of gas, the price of energy instead of all the other crap they spend so much time talking about.  Lets see how the juggle the same salary with higher costs of everything, paying a higher amount for health care, coming up deductibles etc..

That is exactly what Romney and Ryan are talking about - and why they are devising strategies different from what Obama's been doing the past 4 years, to grow a healthy economy - which produces more jobs, limits inflation, decreases the national debt and the deficit, etc. - lots of good outcomes.

They care until after the ballots are cast.

To their high rolling donors, yes.

The balance, no.

Separation of church and state is for the protection of BOTH church and state.
Leading with hate and intolerance only leads to MORE hate and intolerance.

Hello, how are you? - "Separation of church and state" is written nowhere in the Constituation, but was a phrase Thomas Jefferson used in a letter he wrote to a pastor. You are right that this concept protects both freedom of religion and the government.

Your comment about intolerance is curious - since I see and experience way more intolerance against freedom of speech, freedom of religion, sexism, and racism from liberals. It is good that Democrats have been very careful to eliminate racism toward Democrats who are black, female, members of religions other than Christianity and Judaism. However, this intolerance is very pronounced against Republicans - especially those of the groups above. So the people who consider themselves tolerant are actually the most intolerant. Why is that, do you think?

I don't think it's intolerance towards Republicans. We just don't want the Christian Right forcing their beliefs on the rest of us, so we have to prevent that.

If, for instance, Obama was to tell groceries stores, gas stations, Realtors, etc to lower their prices or telling the companies to pay a living wage, the lunacy coming from the right would break the sound barrier.

Romney, I just don't know. Until he's truthful to his self, we'll never know what he stands for
