I commend you for thinking outside the box but I hate to inform YOU and millions of others that the REPUBICANS AND DEMOCRAPS ARE TWO WINGS OF THE SAME VULTURE. Until Americans wise up and quit playing the silly two party game, nothing is ever really going to change. I equate our political system with professional wrestling. Both parties ACT like they are against each other and preach to their respective choirs and then go back and laugh at "their" respective voting bases. Anyone who believes there is a dime bit of difference between a repubican and a democrap is either terribly naive or misinformed. Politicians pray for voters like YOU.

One of my most respected politicians is Col. Allen West from Florida.

Hummmmm,I voted for Gary Johnson in the last election, how does that hit ya? Before the last election I voted for Bob Barr, how does that grab ya? Basically, I'm a Libertarian.

Good for you. I'm an INDEPENDENT and "former" repubican, who is THROUGH with the repubican party. Don't know a helluva lot about Johnson but I give you credit for not falling for the "wasting your vote" rhetoric. Personally I didn't vote for either candidate and view both as tweedle dee and tweedle dum. I'm sick and tired of WASTING my votes on some POS repubican politician who doesn't give a hoot about his constituents once he/she get elected. I actually have more respect for the "mafia" than I do politicians and view both as the same. They're both ORGANIZED CRIMINALS but at least with the "mafia" they're up front about it and pull no punches. I wouldn't walk five feet in any direction to shake Obama or Mitt Romney's hand, both POS as far as I'm concerned.

The sad fact remains, any vote for someone other than Romney, was a vote for Obama.

I WILL not vote for the lesser of two evils. I'm SICK AND TIRED of the REPUBICAN party taking my vote for granted. Maybe IF and WHEN it gets so bad, some people might just finally grow a pair and start standing up. Romney was a gutless, self serving career politician. Buh bye Mitt.

Keep on helping the LWLD's then. I'm no fan of the Romney, or the Republicans. A third party that can give the other two a run for their money is a long, long, way off.

What continues to ABSOLUTELY ASTONISH ME is the fact that the rePUBICan's strongest base is working class, middle age Southern White males, and yet the rePUBICans treat this demographic with utter contempt and disdain. The annointed Mitt Romney during the rePUBICan debates showed total disdain for the Confederate Flag and he might have well just wiped his uptight arse with it. BTW, I'm not a "Johnny Reb," and have no particular feelings towards the Confederate Flag one way or the other. To be perfectly honest with you I view the Confederate Flag just as I would the Italian Flag, the flag of Ireland, or wherever, it sparks not much feeling in me either way. Truth be told, the BosWash corridor of "old money" rePUBICANS view their largest base, i.e., working class, Southern White males with contempt. Just have to wonder WHEN people in the South and other regions will figure this out.

Some have, but the day when there is enough, is a long, long, way off.

Actually, adding on to your point, pretty much all of Appalachia has been taken advantage of, on more then one front.

When was the last time you heard a reporter or a politician voice concern over the poor Whites in Appalachia? And yet every election cycle we hear some lame, self serving, political whore tell what he or she will do for "the Black community," "the Hispanic community" or the latest addition to the PC totem pole, "the homosexual community." Must be "racist" to have concern for or wish to help "poor white trash." Obviously a politician will garner more votes and keep favor with the "controlled media" if he points out that some 300lb welfare queen needs another Obama phone, or that Jose and Tyrone gots to git dem a free college edumucation courtesy of the gubmint. "The poor white trash" in Appalachia are to be ridiculed and poked fun at. Those toophless hillbillies don't deserve "our" help, "our" only concern should be on helping all those poor suffering black and brown inner-city y.u.f.e.s or some nonwhite turd worlder thousands of miles away. When was the last time you heard a rePUBICan politician stand up and say what he or she was going to do for the White community? Face it, the rePUBICan party is BASICALLY the White party, and yet they do not pander to their largest voting block at all. Todays rePUBICan party and lets be honest for decades now the rePUBICans are too busy trying to suck up to minorities who will NEVER vote for them and take "their" White voters for granted. Until those rePUBICan creeps start looking out for the White man or woman, they can kiss my sweet arse goodbye.

BTW. Would affirmitive action aka affirmitve Blacktion favor a well to do Black kid over a poor White kid from Appalachia if they both were trying to get into the same college? Hmmmmm. Now wouldn't you think the poor White kid would have to overcome more obstacles. Doesn't seem quite fair does it and it definitely discriminates against the poor White kid who doesn't have the advantages of being from a well to do family. Oh well some liberal do-gooder will stand up for the White kid, I'm sure of that. Those "anti-racist" vehemently oppose any form of "racism" don't they?

It's not racism if it harms white folk.

The last time I remember was when LBJ sat on the porch and made all those promises with our tax dollars. A reporter revisited these people 20 years later and they were in worse condition than when visited by LBJ, the great socialist conspirator to spread the wealth of the taxpayers.

Who can forget when that darling little so-called "conservative" and republican sweetheart Sarah Palin heaped and lauded praises on MLK during Glenn Becks little shindig in Washington. Glenn Beck, another money grubbing shill, was beside himself for weeks fawning over MLK on his now defunct national syndicated program on Faux News Network. So "our" so-called "conservative" and republican leaders glorify an avowed communist, a hypocritical drunkard, solicitor and beater of prostitutes(who happened to be White), and a proven plagiarizer. There is YOUR REPUBLICAN spokespeople people. Enjoy. Talk about "controlled" opposition. This group of neocon clowns who are currently parading around as "republicans" will NEVER receive a vote from me. Wake up.
