On the ballot for the Presidency, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green). Make a special note to remember to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1

If any of you are looking to waste your vote in this election, Sharpie has some great information for you to read. If you are looking to turn this country around financially, fire Obama and vote for Mitt. Also, vote in some Republicans to the Senate to work with Romney. Obama, Reed and Pelosi all need to go. You can only fire Obama at his time. That's a good start.
