His words are fruit cake like him. Pass it around and next time it comes back it is even harder and still not liked by any majority. Stick to brain washing your students since they are still gullible for your fertilizer.

Thank you for running Mr. Mitchell. You showed courage in standing up for your positions in the face of arragance and closemindedness. Your voice and contribution to the race are greatly appreciated by many Vermonters who share your perspective but are often either left out of the discussion or shouted down by people unable or unwilling to consider a third way. Thanks again, you should be proud of your contribution, best of luck.

Thank you Atty.

Well stated! We have little choice but to vote for Mr. Shumlin given the closeness of the race. Thanks to Mr. Mitchell for bringing worthy issues to the debate and then for stepping aside in a very close race and endorsing the lesser of the evils we have before us.

Yet again they all step aside and bow down to the failures that are the republicans and democrats. Then the voters wonder why the country is in ruins. They will keep wondering. Country of fools.

Politics is about compromise. You NEVER get everything you want and have to be somewhat satisfied with 50% or even less these days.

The two party system is certainly a drag, but until IRV is added and special interest $$$ is removed we won't be getting what many truly want and hope for.

Is "hope' a dirty word now?

My name is not Scott, sorry.
The two party system is a joke. IF you want to compromise what you believe in that's fine..
Oh don't forget the invisible third party..corporate money.
Republicans and Democrats deserve zero votes.

Why did you bring up "a two party system" on the loser's blog. I rather have my head out in the sun shine as to the shadows of the so called anointed.

-ha!'Fartsmeller'(which may be an alt of twit 'Tenacious' of ibrattleboro.com ) thinks you're me, just cuz you express similar thing I've been saying for years- "Don't Feed the Animals" (donkey/elephant) and those who figured it out from George Wallace to Jesse Ventura have been saying it too, that top dems and reps are two wings of the same treasonous New World Order bird that we need to shoot down. Whichever flavor of treason u like, neocon/corporatist/globalist or socialist/corporatist/globalis t, Satan has the 'hope' and 'change' candy for you- a nasty tu rd coated in sweet chocolate and the sheeple eat it up.
You say its a country of fools, my preferred term is 'sheeple'. They can't break out of the 'Left Right Paradigm'(google it)

I got two cards in the mail from the Shumlin campaign, one saying Dubie doesn't support small business. I don't know if that's true, but the other said Dubie wants to make abortion illegal- heck I'd vote for him if that's the 'worst' the libs can come with as 'dirt' on him since abortion IS murder but libs can't admit it. However Dubie is pro-VY and that's why I can't vote 4 him, the righties round here can't admit that with VY we need to SHUT -R- DOWN! After that's done in 2012 I'll consider voting for more righties as long as they ain't scoundrel secret society members like the one running against Davis. Limousine liberal Galbraith is a member of another secret society whose key members have openly called for world government and the destruction of U.S. sovereignty and end runs around the Constituion to achive their goal. His dad was a member of the same powerful society but resigned in disgust. Peter would have us believe that the CFR is "just a boring talk group" - a line of pure BS he told me after the forum with libs White and Young, insulting my intelligence.

Hill Folk high school doesn't count. 99% of foreigners can form better sentences than you. In English.

that why I'm learning the Koran. Why waste time typing good English, you seem able to translate it or are you a code reader. If you are then you would read between the lines and see what I am saying.

If you can't read, speak, write, type good English, then you need to be deported. Don't you agree?

This is great for Dubie. The mere fact a kook like this supports Shumlin is good enough to make me vote for Shumlin.

I was the meanest S O B that walked the valley and wrote and spoke the Queens English for most of my life till the day some little useless S O B ran me over and did me in but I am on the mend and shall rise to the top again to serve justice to all you who think of the disable as dumb.
