    totally, the issue areas you mention are important to me.

    Dem Lloyd Doggett of Austin votes VERY different than Paul Ryan in the House. There are fortunately many other examples and those downticket races are the ones I am supporting 100% Dem.

    Jill Stein makes a reasonable argument that the 'lesser of two evils is still evil.'  

    Noam Chomsky suggested recently:

    Noam Chomsky On How Progressives Should Approach Election 2012

    By Matthew Filipowicz, AlterNet

    01 October 12

    Recently, on the Matthew Filipowicz Show, I had the privilege of speaking to Professor Noam Chomsky at his MIT office. We discussed many aspects of activism including how he felt activists and progressives should approach two party politics and specifically the 2012 election.

    Chomsky stated "I think they should spend five or ten minutes on it. Seeing if there's a point in taking part in the carefully orchestrated electoral extravaganza. And my own judgment, for what it's worth, is, yes, there's a point to taking a part."

    Professor Chomsky said he will probably vote for Jill Stein for president in effort to push a genuine electoral alternative, but that if he lived in a swing state he would vote "against Romney-Ryan, which means voting for Obama."

    Conor Friesendorf with The Atlantic says no way.

    Me, I am waffling.  Like Chomsky, I will probably vote for Stein but I really liked Rocky Anderson's responses to the debate questions last night.

    Who knows by the time I get to the ballot I might change my mind.  Guess that  for the presidency only  makes me one of those much sought after undecided voters, huh!  Yippeee!
