“Sorry, my friends, but there’s no time to snore
An out-of-touch millionaire just declared war
On schools, the environment, unions, fair pay
We’re all on our own if Romney has his way
And he’s against safety nets
If you fall, tough luck
So, I strongly suggest that you wake the f*ck up.”

    Obama's problem isn't that people are asleep – it's that they been have awakened by his actions – by his utter failures to fulfill his promises and to the fact that he's a tool of the elites. To his murderous drone wars and his active persecution of whistleblowers and his aggressive war against civil liberties. One must engage in willful denial and/or delusion to buy into his empty rhetoric while ignoring his damaging actions.

    A plea to vote for Obama is like a plea for an abused woman to stay with her abuser.

    "Tell certain liberals and progressives that you can't bring yourself to vote for a candidate who opposes gay rights, or who doesn't believe in Darwinian evolution, and they'll nod along. Say that you'd never vote for a politician caught using the 'n'-word, even if you agreed with him on more policy issues than his opponent, and the vast majority of left-leaning Americans would understand. But these same people cannot conceive of how anyone can discern Mitt Romney's flaws, which I've chronicled in the course of the campaign, and still not vote for Obama.

    Don't they see that Obama's transgressions are worse than any I've mentioned?"

    It's quite interesting – NOWHERE in this video is the argument made that Obama will be a good president – rather, it clearly stokes the fear that R-money will be a terrible one. That's the basis – vote Obama, or the boogie man will get ya.

    Forget hope – this form of politics is all about fear and demonization. Funny, I thought that was the Republican approach.

    Oz really nails it here. This video is all about fear-mongering.

    There are, in fact, solid economic reasons for reining in medicaid-medicare, soc sec etc. Like, if we don't, we go over the financial cliff and then turn into Greece. Like if we don't, we're dooming our kids and grandkids to a lifetime where a large portion of their work is expropriated to pay for our desire to have everything and have it free. But you get none of that economic reality here, just the idea that Romney is an evil person hoping to throw the old and poor out on the street.

    Funny thing is, from what I've read (and opposite to what this video says), Romney is actually unwilling to tackle any of the thOz really nails it here. This video is all about fear-mongering.

    Funny thing is, from what I've read (and opposite to what this video says), Romney is actually unwilling to tackle any of the three big deficit makers: soc sec, medicare-medicaid, and military. But then again, so is Obama. We're in for it either way. The American Empire and war machine continues either way as does out-of-control spending.

    Basically, the only one who had a clue in this vid was big brother, who said all politicians are the same. He wasn't totally right. You CAN vote for peace, fiscal sanity, and financial freedom for our children. Vote Gary Johnson. He's on the ballot in all 50 states. Or if you don't believe in the financial cliff and want to at least vote for peace, the Green Party candidate (forget her name) is on the ballot in 30 states. But Obama-Romney is Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, at least for the policy issues that actually matter.ree big deficit makers: soc sec, medicare-medicaid, and military. But then again, so is Obama.

      Hey, sorry about the bits of reduplication up above. Funny things started happening when I tried to send. A typhoon is passing over head. Could that have anything to do with it?
