what ppl actually have to do is not listen to some speeches but see what they "promise" to do, nothing else matters.
you can see the "promises" and vote on your opinion, when the votes are in then and only then you see who wins.
it's not really a fair fight when you don't have ppl voting honest but trough sheer pressure, revealing the stand in mid voting period is only making things worse.
this isn't just for one country, this is for every country in the world that has a voting system.
even here in holland things are not done properly, the voting machines are really unclear and you don't really have a clear way to understand who does what.
i ones voted for a party that is about animal protection, i knew it would not win but i could not find the one i did want to vote for.
Right now, if 30% of people each vote for a candidate, and 40% vote for the third, likelihood is that the 40% one gets most or all the power instead of the power being divided amongst all three candidates.
I'd rather have three people argue over how to fix the country, than run the chance of having one power-hungry person making all the wrong moves.

Josh Ellen and Marc Henderson! These two enterprising young men (for all I know they’re 104) came up with the winning names for our Presidential Burrito Bowls coming Monday, August 13th. Just look at these great names – and bowls:
Obama’s Chicken Teriyaki Luau Bowl: Mexican rice, grilled chicken, Teriyaki sauce, stir fry vegetables, grilled pineapple spears, garnished with chopped green onions and served in a bowl. (Please make my day and do the hula when you order it.)
Romney’s Mexican Mitt-Loaf Bowl: Grilled Mexican meatloaf, fresh mashed potatoes, sautéed vegetables, a sweet and savory sauce, corn, and salsa garnished with chopped green onions and served in a bowl. Mitt-Loaf. I love it.
So congratulations Josh and Marc. You’ve both won a catered party for 20 on Election night AND a 50” flat screen TV. Woo-hoo! (Fine print: you have to move in together and share it.)
As for the rest of you, you’ve won the ability to sway the election. Just gather up all your like-minded friends starting August 13thand order the burrito bowl of your preferred candidate over and over again. We guarantee whosever burrito bowl sells the most will be our next president. GUARANTEE IT. (The December Taco Talk may be written from jail.)
So if you care about your country (or us) at all, you’ll eat here many times in the next few months. It’s your patriotic duty.
