Point Blank: Who Are You Voting For in the Presidential Election?

Who are you voting for and why?

As Barack Obama and Mitt Romney prepare for their first-ever presidential debate, many have made up their minds in advance about who they are going to vote for.

Some people favor Obama, others Romney. And some don't favor either of them. Now we ask you, Patch readers, to tell us who you are voting for and perhaps more importantly, why.

This is a discussion that is at the heart of the nation, and we would like to keep it clear of personal attacks, and respectful of the opinions of others. Know in advance that this comment board will be heavily moderated and we will be keeping the discussion going, in a respectful and civil tone.

That being said, who are you going to vote for and why?

The presidential debate between Obama and Romney is scheduled for Wednesday, October 3, 2012, 6:00pm7:30pm PT., on all major networks.

And our nation as well know it will fall.

Just so long as the main stream media covers for things like a major state (dominated by democrats) NOT turning in its latest unemployment numbers, yes - people WILL be lulled into thinking the economy is on an upturn.

Hey Bwood, in light of your own comment "...but in the future I would appreciate it if you did not take it on yourself to answer for others.." I ask YOU who elected YOU spokesman for your liberal legions? I can tell that the medicine of truth which Miranda is providing is not setting well with your progressive digestion tract?

I bet there is also, Adam, a correlation between people who vote for Obama, and their belief that tearing down successful people (those e-vil "rich")wi l in turn cause their own fortunes to increase. THAT, and I am sure they also believe that Reverend Wrights sermons where all just pretend, when Dear Leader sat and listened, for TWENTY years.

But your argument only holds water if one considers all government spending wasteful. There are indeed expenditures that seem ridiculous in abstract, but when held in context are generally beneficial, if even just as a means of injecting money into the system. I find that most vocal conservatives are 'extremists', in the sense that they make economic decisions as all or nothing. Yes,mother government wastes, so do all businesses as well. So what's your point?
