an Single Party running against itself. The Republicans and Democrats fight all day about the differences and how their party is better but when it comes down to the issues. The "Two" Parties are agree both believe you have no rights but the ones they give you which is an starch contradiction of the ideas and principles of the Founding Fathers. Here is an list of the 40 things to which Romney and Obama agree on. http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/40-points-that-prove-that-barack-obama-and-mitt-romney-are-exactly-the-same Oh and there is more. http://www.politicalcompass.org/uselection2012

Many of my friends are becoming Libertarians or turning to some kind of third party because they are so sick of the two party system. I feel like I have to vote for Obama because I don't trust Romney and his politics. At least with Obama, I know what I am in for, and I don't know if I want to vote for a third party because third party candidates rarely get chosen (these days) to be president. This country has become very divided, and has become very partisan, when we really need a bipartisan system.

Yes, rogue13xmen13 I feel the same way, at first I had decided not to vote in this election. But I know what I'm getting with Pres. Obama but with Mitt Romney who knows what this flip flopper will do. I know one thing for sure he don't give a rats behind about the less fortunate. This is where Mitt Romney loses my vote. This is why we need reform in our political system, our politicians got us believing that they the GOP and Dems are the only ones who can govern our country.

I went to a site YOU'D trust; http://www.snopes.com/politics/romney/realmitt.asp and then there are those pesky friends of Romney who keep saying things like he helped them in small, unspectacular ways during his tenure as Bishop of his church, and how he continued to help even when he was no longer a leader in his church. And President Clinton at the Global Initiative dinner where Romney spoke, praised him for his charitable outreaches to the less fortunate in the world. Gosh, he really is for the little guy, but of course you'd never hear that from the MSM and the hard core Obama supporters.

I am interested to see how the debates go. Either it is going to be one big lovefest. Or they will fight over the small percentage of stuff they disagree on. They are probably going to pick a couple of issue they completely disagree on and use those to get people to decide who to vote for. That way with people focusing on the little things....they don't see the big picture.

I don't think that the debates will do much good because most voters have already made up their minds on whom they will vote for. The debates should be interesting I hope, at least entertaining if nothing else.

Yup. Totally. No sunlight whatsoever between Democrats and Republicans on abortion, marriage equality, tax policy, Don't Ask Don't Tell, Obamacare, Labor Union law, corporate personhood, social security, education reform, or foreign policy. Are you for real?

Ummm there may be sunlight between republicans and democrats...but as far as romney and obama go...not so much. Well that depends on which romney you are talking about...because the guy has changed his stance on the issues so many times that you have to wonder which is the real romney. He used to be pro-choice...now he isn't. Marriage Equality- was for it...now he isn't. obamacare- went from saying he would repeal the whole thing to now he is saying he would repeal "key parts"...umm..what key parts? After all his healthcare plan when he was gov. was what obamacare was modeled after. I could go on and on. He has flip flopped so many times on the issues in his political career. Romney is going to say what people want to hear to get elected. He changes his views with the wind and political climate of the people whose votes he is going after. Which romney are people voting for and if elected which romney are they going to get?

I like how Obama runs things but I dont know much about these Democrat vs Republican thing. So I think they need to stop arguing about anything related to the issues they are facing and instead wait for the election for them to see who really deserves to sit and take positions in the government.

I think the big problem with this argument is people do not look at things through other peoples point of view. Its easy to say Obama failed but if you break it down there has not been to many situations that Obama has not handled in a common sense approach. The problem is like many people already know, is not to many people have common sense. Which makes you wonder why its called common sense if its that that common.

Last line supposed to be, " if its not that common."

You call it common sense to lie to the American people for over a week about a terror attack and it's causes, then JAIL the man whom he tried to frame but got caught at framing him even still! And releasing 55 al Qaeda Gitmo detainees when he has just admitted (finally) that it was an al Qaeda attack on 9/11/12? Along with asking Congress for MORE foreign aid to a country that he doesn't even know if they're an ally or not? A country who are demanding we change OUR Constitution to put sharia law above the first admendment? And the guy who bombed the WTC in the nineties MAY be released to this country to turn loose too? THAT OBAMA has common sense?

Thank you for bringing the list. It was pretty informative. I am more inclined to side with the Constitution, (Ron Paul). I figure, our country came with a list of instructions, how about we follow that then there really would not be the partisan bickering. But it seems far too many people in this country are afraid of cutting the government apron strings. It's a pity. You can do so much better for yourself than a bunch of bureaucrats in Washi8ngtion....
