If Two Cents Could Buy Real Change: Bipartisan America

Are you all worked up after the debate? Stress levels running high, and you're ready to pounce on the first tweeter or facebooker or blogger that says something with which you don't agree? Congratulations. The government and media have succeeded in turning you into a pawn. My suggestion? Eat bacon and look at cute cats on the Internet instead. Then vote for someone other than the two major party candidates.

Voting for the lesser of two evils is still casting a vote for evil.  The time for citizens to take back our government, which has been a never-changing machine for decades, has come. Voting for Romney or Obama will not bring about any drastic changes in the way this country is governed. There are two third party candidates that will be on enough state ballots to potentially win the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency. Third party candidates are kept from the public limelight in every way that the government can. At the very least research the other candidates running for president before deciding to throw your vote away on someone that will only keep the tired old machine turning. And if you still don't find a candidate you whole-heartedly support, then don't cast a presidential vote at all. The American people need to take a stand and make it clear that we are tired of being puppets in this charade. The best way to do that now is at the polls. Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin. It is time to evolve. Show the government that we want freedom by demanding real change with the most powerful weapons we have--words and votes. Free elections? Open debates? What a crock. Two less-than-par choices is not a choice. 

My goal isn't to lobby for any particular candidate. That is a decision each individual must make on his or her own. My goal is to lobby for freedom and offer a small amount of encouragement and information to get your mind moving in a direction other than just left or right. Check out the couple links below and start exploring on your own. Educating yourself independently is important. To be clear, I am not saying that I think it is at all likely that a third-party candidate will win this election. I am saying that if enough voters take a stand to impact the numbers at the polls it will begin the awakening of the American people and their influence on government.

But that's just my two cents. Check out these links:
