The only boo I give to this article is "...(Obama's gonna win California anyway)..." Way to add to a disempowered publics' "feeling" toward our political system. Whether the subtext is there or not, it's about time we used our power of checks and balances and vote for the person that best supports our positions. Instead of this roll over position of, "well, he's gonna win anyways." Also, why Gary Johnson? It is well known Jill Stein supports marijuana legalization and Rocky Anderson supports legalizing hemp production. I think Virgil Goode is the only one, besides Obama and Romney who doesn't support any legislation of cannabis. Another candidate is Andre Barnett, although I don't know what his position. My point is, this writer should of informed the voters of what the other candidates' positions are, regardless of whether or not voters have to write them in on the ballot. They also should have been confident about the power of our votes and not belittle them to the level of a protest (again subtext maybe there but there is no need feed into the negativity).
