So here's the question that begs an answer. How can people in America who seemingly have a conscience and a sense of morality still support that radicalized party and their sociopathic agenda? That's one of life's mysteries that cannot be explained, at least not yet. As difficult as that may be to understand, you can bet that many millions of them will blindly support and vote for members of this twisted political ideology.

The American people need to wake up before the 2012 national elections and become informed about all the issues that are involved in the decision for whom to vote. They must keep in mind that the members of the Sociopathic party will use every trick and deceitful scheme to take control of this government; they are busy enacting laws in Republican-controlled states to prevent millions of Americans from voting. The will attempt to present themselves as the party of the people and nothing could be further from the truth; they will misrepresent themselves in many different ways to fool the voters of this country. This time around the people must see through their smoke screens.

I dislike talking about the lesser of two evils as it only magnifies my concerns about the degree to which this nation has regressed and declined. But, being a realist, I know that, no matter how limited or bad the choices may be, I cannot in good conscience, do nothing and allow this country to be taken down by these political extremists. And the fact is that no matter how distasteful it may be for we the American people, it will boil down to only two choices.

As we approach this 2012 election, the American people will be faced with a tremendous dilemma, one that will stretch our moral judgment to its absolute limits. We can stay home, refuse to vote and fail this country in its greatest time of need by doing absolutely nothing. We can vote for some obscure candidate who has absolutely no chance of winning but it will show our defiance against the polluted political system.

We can cast our vote for what we might want to call the lesser of two evils and, thereafter continue to live in an America that, quite probably, will continue to be faced with a myriad of very serious problems; most probably more war, joblessness and a declining economy - but with the possibility that we still will have the chance to find the ways to reverse this situation and restore this nation's stability.

And lastly we can vote for the only other alternative that there is, one that will allow this nation to be ruled by a sociopathic-controlled government that will make the future a living hell.

All I can say is that "these are the times that try men's souls" and all Americans must look deeply into their hearts and souls and make a monumental decision that will determine the fate of this nation.
