Just remember there is more to this election than two parties. I know...who knew?

Along with Romney and President Obama there is:

Gary Johnson and Jim Gray of the Libertarian Party


Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala of the Green party.


And don't forget you can "write in".

You have a choice.

Yes...but do so for your own personal satisfaction. In 2008 Presidential election, I wrote-in 'Hillary Clinton' for President. I'm still proud to say I did so, and feel that, in retrospect, that I was right (over Obama)...but I did so for my own personal satisfaction, not because I was under any impression that it could actually affect outcome, which it (unfortuantely!) did not.

im not sure why an action that means absolutely nothing would make you proud of yourself. i guess if it makes you happy, then good for you!

Exactly...it is my vote to do what I want with it. I am proud not to have voted for Obama.

Sigh...Hillary would have made such a better president.
