I honestly have not a clue who to vote for. I dont like either party. Im not trying to start this as a debate as to who is better and all that but i honestly just....its one of those.....i have NO clue who to vote for because i dont like both. Everytime i get asked by family 'Romney or Obama?' I just say jack sparrow.

Quoting Peanutx3:

No no no Poods.  A vote is never wasted!  When Romney loses was your vote a wasted vote?  My vote for a third party candidate is not a vote for Obama or Romney, it is a vote for the candidate that I think is the best candidate.

Quoting toomanypoodles:

 It's simple.  Do you feel Obama has done a good job?  Do you think the economy is good?  Do you think the country should be trillions of dollars in debt? Do you think you should be forced to pay for something you may not want by the government?  Do you think the government should stay out of your business and have limited powers?  Are you against socialism?

Any red flags there?  Vote for Romney.

A third party candidate may sound good, but it's a wasted vote--those others will not, can not win.  A vote for someone other than Romney is a vote for Obama. 


 But he's not going to win, sweetie.  Why place your bet on the lame horse at the end of the starting line?  Ya go for the front runners, the ones that actually will win the race. 

If Romney does not get the needed votes, Obama will win. 

So because my guy isn't gonna win it is a wasted vote but if your guy loses your vote wasn't wasted????  This is my problem with the idea of wasted votes. 

 The race is neck and neck.  If  Romney does not get the votes, he will not win.  So voting for someone that won't win will not be a vote for Romney.  If you are okay with another 4 years of Obama, then don't give your vote to Romney. 

Your vote counts---Romney needs that vote in his camp....or we've got Obama again.

quiz website thingie

I tried this and I'll be damned but it looks like I agree most with JIll Stien. I sided 91% with her and 78% with Obama. Huh, who would of known?

Romney/Obama are 50/50 - or so we are told, and one of them will be the next President, for sure, a third party candidate who has zero (0) chance is a wasted vote, but truthfully any vote not for Obama is okay with me.

Waste away.

If we thought that Romney was a better choice, we'd vote for him. Personally, I think Romney is worse for most of America than Obama.

Neither is a great choice, but Romney is worse-

Hence, third party-

If Romney does not end up winning, was your vote a wasted vote?

 I've said all I can say on this one, sis.  Vote your conscience. 

If you don't dislike Obama it doesn't matter then.  Getting Obama OUT is what's important to me, so yes, my vote counts because it is a vote that Obama will not get and it gives Romney the numbers he needs to win.

Of course you know that Romney doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell to win our state? So my vote for Johnson or Romney wouldn't make a difference. Still not a wasted vote.

Try this quiz website thingie, it may help you decide on a candidate. It's absolutely free, oddly enough unbiased (which is damn hard to find), no spam, etc. You basically answer questions on issues and when you're done it tells you which candidate(s) share your views... the cool thing is you can break it down by answer and compare each individual response to a candidate, see their exact positions, compare candidates to each other, and if you feel like sharing the link with other people you can also compare your answers to theirs. :)

This was a great tool! Thanks for sharing

I'm right there with you and my two older kids refuse to vote period, which I find rather sad. This would have been our son's first time at the voting booth and he is completely not interested in either candidate. As he has said, he refuses to vote "the lesser of two evils because there really isn't one."

I've said that I won't be voting as has my husband. However, in light of how our son feels and with hope that he'll follow suit, we'll be doing that "lesser of two evils" and will be voting a second term for Obama. The man needs to clean up his mess in there and we don't need a new regime in there making a bigger mess.
