Weighs in on election

To the editor:

If you haven't made up your mind by now who to vote for, you're wasting your time, and both parties are just wasting millions, if not billions, of dollars on campaign propaganda.

I, myself, am sick of half truths to complete lies from both parties about each other, but mostly from the far right. Everything from the kids starving from healthy school lunches, to "real marriages," to "legitimate rape." We know Mitt doesn't care one iota about the middle class people. He really hasn't given us anything on his real agenda; he just continues to beat economy and jobs into the ground. The economy, to his dismay, is slowly recovering. He has declared war on those people he claims are the victims and the entitled. Well, Mitt, those people have paid, and paid well, to get health care, Social Security, and are continuing to pay their taxes. The very kind of taxes you try and avoid paying. All this nonsense for a last-ditch effort to save the mega-rich from being taxed and paying their fair share. Maybe if the Republican Party would find someone more moderate, in the middle, not the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, O'Reilly, The Donald and now Clint Eastwood, someone we could believe in, and could maybe speak the truth, then we as voters could find something to listen to. Maybe what we should really be thinking about is term limitations, not only in Congress, but at the state level too, including governors - 315 million people governed by a continuous 535 people.
