Vote For The Mavericks
I thought Allen Amundsen's commentary in the Eureka Reporter this morning was a fun read. Some points well made.
I've always wondered why the mainstream media focuses so much on the dull mainstream candidates. Those candidates are so predictable. It's refreshing to hear candidates like Ron Paul (I've never listened to Mike Gravel) go contrary to the rest in the so- called presidential debates.
I agree with Amundsen: These "debates" aren't really debates, for the most part. They're just forums where candidates can give you a short sound bite on why you should vote for them.
I always wonder why so many people watch these debates and, then, when election time comes vote for the same dull clowns they've been watching for months on end?
I say don't vote for them. You'll only encourage them. Waste your vote on one of the dark horses, like Ron Paul. That's what I usually do and I feel better for it.
