So why vote for either of these clowns:
When asked specifically about the impact each would have on their own personal financial situation, registered voters were skeptical about what either Mr. Obama or Mitt Romney could do, though they were slightly more optimistic about Romney's impact.
As many as 38 percent said if Mr. Obama is re-elected his policies would make their own financial situation worse, compared to 26 percent who think he would make things better. By comparison 26 percent said Romney's election would make their personal situation worse while 28 percent said it would make things better. About one third said neither Romney nor Mr. Obama would have an impact.Full article
Just another example of the fraud who is Barack Obama:
Obama hasn't proposed any anti-gun legislation in his first term, and has rarely mentioned the topic. This makes us wonder how long the NRA and the politicians who do its bidding can continue to pretend there's a wolf at the door before people look outside and discover that wolves are an endangered species.
The answer, based on last week's annual NRA convention, is apparently forever.Full article
Thanks to 'The Young Turks' for exposing the big lie about corporations paying too much taxes. Since the 1950s revenue from corporate taxes dropped a high of 30+% to under 10%. During than same period, to make up for the difference in lost revenue, payroll taxes (what 'little' people pay) have gone up 4 times. Individual income taxes have remained the same, as a percent of total Federal revenue.
Still doubt if the corporations run this country and we don't?
This is an interesting complaint because in many ways Mark Gorton is the new face of Wall Street. Gorton is a high-frequency trader. His company, Tower Research Capital LLC, with its 275-person global staff of engineers and computer science and physics majors, is part of an industry that today is responsible for more than half of all stock trading in the United States, according to the Tabb Group, a financial markets research and strategic advisory firm. Gorton's is an industry under scrutiny.

Despite all the Romney bashing by the mainstream media the American people still think there is no difference between the two candidates and parties. This is why we should vote third party and someone who is part of this failed system. There is still time. Look at what Occupy accomplished in only 3 months:
Mitt Romney has closed the gap with President Obama among registered voters, a CBS News/New York Times poll released Wednesday found, putting the former Massachusetts governor in a dead heat with the president for the White House.Full article
Mr. Obama and Romney each received support from 46 percent of registered voters when asked who they would vote for if the election were held today. In March, a CBS News/New York Times survey found that Mr. Obama held a slight advantage over Romney of 47 percent to 44 percent.
Thanks Occupy Wall Street:
Citigroup (C) has become the first Wall Street bank to get a thumbs-down from shareholders over outsized executive pay.Full article
At its annual meeting Tuesday, 55 percent of the bank's shareholders voted against the pay packages that have been granted to Citigroup's top executives, including CEO Vikram Pandit's $15 million for last year and $10 million retention pay. The vote is advisory and won't force the bank to change its pay practices, but it did send a powerful message of discontent to Citi's leadership.
"This vote is historic," said Eleanor Bloxham, CEO of The Value Alliance, a board advisory firm. "None of the Wall Street firms have received this kind of a review yet."
