    Given that you only have two choices and they are both in favor of the same sorts of cuts, you're sort of out of options. You could consider voting 3rd party, but I've been told that only idiots and children do that.

        My comment was intended to be tongue-in-cheek. I personally think that voting for a 3rd party candidate is a good idea if the two major candidates are both unacceptable. Even if the 3rd party has no hope in the current election, we never get to a point where there is an alternative if we don't start somewhere. If the Greens (for example) get 5% in this election, they might get 10% in the next one, and start to get real coverage, eventually leading to winning a seat.

        Bernie Sanders, anybody???

    •  and that's exactly (0+ / 0-)

      how they keep you toein' the party line.
