Agreed.  Of course our opinions are colored by our political, economic, religious, and social views.  And yes, I am fully aware of the degrees to which both parties are similar to each other.  And yes, I am fully aware of the flaws and failing of both of the VIABLE candidates.  But not voting or voting for Mickey Mouse is to me little more than political masturbation.  Now, "not voting" would certainly be a good choice if you have no clue as to what the world and nation is about.  If you know nothing, then staying home IS a good thing!

Rus,

Just because some of us are voting a certain way in this election, don't assume that we're not aware (and outraged) by the current 'two wings of a single party' system, and all the negatives that engenders.

Speaking only for myself, I'm voting based on the fact that either Romney or Obama will become our next President, and I know which one I don't want (based mostly on social issues).

I don't like our political landscape, but we do have to live in it until we can change it. I don't think abstaining or 3rd party voting is an effective way to change it. The media, nor the D's and R's don't care how few people vote. They only care who gets the majority of the votes cast.
