Yikes! America's republic gets boiled down to a tweet or status update... "Dude, how should I vote? (Tell me in 140 chars or less.)" Wake up America! Do some research before you decide the fate of the free world. 

AYTM.COM reports:
A recent study shows that social media has a big influence on Americans' decision to vote. What do they have to say about voting influence?

    I really do not think there are any undecided voters. Everything is pretty much in place for the election. The debates are pure and simply entertainment and watch who trips. Undecided will probably not show up. Independent voters will and they are not all about Obama . Just look at the middle east on fire while he is late night TV attention. Hard to believe that the middle east has that many American flags to burn. Think about it

    It was really funny . . . Some stupid goony-type-woman was being questioned by a man-on-the-street type of reporter, yesterday; and she said that she would NOT make her mind up on whom to vote for UNTIL she was actually inside a Voting Booth.

    social media ain't going anywhere, and it's not intimidating to younger voters, the bulk of whom support Obama. The Grand Old Party better get with it, though i doubt that it will. Time marches on, no matter how hard you try to hold it at 1950--

    The Media is in the business to sell air time and with all these spin Doctors the "truth" is in very short supply, if you are watching "Fox News" they will spin for Romney if you are watching "CNN" they will spin for Obama. It doesn't matter if you are listening or watching, only believe very little on what you hear or see. (years ago my Grandfather told me that Politics is like a white out blizzard, you can not see or hear anything)!

    The media lies as as well. Don't depend on them much.
    I don't get to vote this year because I'm not old enough.
    But the question is not what the president can do for me.
    It is what he can do for this country, it is him protecting the Constitution and people's rights.
    A president that will again wave that "Beacon of Hope" of America for other countries.
    Right now we are hated and envied as a country. America is hated so bad that people want us dead. We were once respected as a nation.
    We need a president that measures with political power and not with political parties because right now America does not have a "balanced center" that are our Founding Father debated, fought, and worked for.
    Benjamin Franklin feared that we might go back to a kingly government, something that he and his fellow compatriots fought to prevent. Pay close attention to these presidents/presidential candidates, vice presidents, Senators, Supreme Court Justices, and Congress men and women.
    Forget about hating Obama or Romney. Listen to their words and be careful with Obama. He knows how to speak. Be knowledgeable. The president and the presidential candidates will not tell the WHOLE truth, they can even go as far as raising false hope to get elected.

    It's not about who we want as a president or who we don't want to see as president anymore. Ask yourself if this guy is fully worthy of running this country. Ask yourself if this Senator is worthy of upholding the Constitution and so forth.

    We should be focusing on the Constitution because within it lies our rights as Americans. We should not be focusing on political parties. Your thoughts and questions should be about the Constitution.
    We can not allow a president or the government to trample over our rights. We can not become dependent or get sucked int the illusion that the government does a lot for us or the government can do a lot for us. We do need the government but we don't need to depend on it. That is what leads to monarchy. We can not allow the government to grow or the president to get away with what he wants.

    what evidence do you have to support the notion that Obama is not aware of the status of our relationship with Egypt?

    i think he nailed it.

    they are not an ally, nor are they an enemy... they are emerging and what they do now will, in large part, determine their status with the US.

    what part of that do you disagree with?


    nevermind... i've been looking at your other posts... you don't have the qualifications to answer that question.

    republicans passed the Earned Income Tax credit which is why a lot of ppl who work for a living don't have to pay fed income tax.

    there are no dead "voters"... .you can't vote if you're dead.... try it... you'll see.
  • mrk5panzer lee 2012/09/20 19:15:51

    You need to pass that on to the DNC because they are the ones who have the power to bring the dead back. To vote that is!
    Do some more fact checking and you will also find out the Dem's helped pass the "Earned Income Tax" bill.

    of course they did.. that was when they used to work on problems and make compromises...

    it was a republican idea to earn democrats votes.

    it worked.

    now Romney says it worked too well and so those ppl are moochers now.


    good luck pissing off the RED states where most of the working poor live.

    No its not Romney that is saying it (moochers) its we the people,53% that is.
    And those Red states your referring to are the Sanctuary Citys within those states. Not the hold state! Most of the people living in those states are sick of paying the tab for Gov. entitlements.

    Yea, I see it every day, grown ass adults acting like children. What's shocking is how uninformed most people really are and how little they care about the direction of the country. They'd rather talk about celebrity gossip, reality TV, their favorite sports team, etc. They don't do ANY research on a candidate, or research party platforms and how it might have changed over the years (this isn't your father's Democrat or Republican Party).......but then they feel compelled and/or pressured into voting. Why? All of a sudden they care about economic and foreign policy? BS.

    I'd rather they just stayed home drooling on themselves watching Honey Boo Boo, and let the adults handle the important things.
