    I saw President Obama's camaigners have their GPS type device date on computers that showed how the early voters have basically voted. If that is real, then the purpose of voting has been to allow campaigners target voters. However, government or people, in the wrong hands can use that type of information for bad reasons. Some of that data may be gathered through the individual giving information to a pollster but if it is gathered through the voting process from government hands, then it is not appropriate.

    This President is holding off on Benghazi and telling his people to get out and vote so that information will not be available prior to voting.

    Listening to Axelrod talking about what the President knew or maybe didn't know as Axelrod wasn't at the Whitehouse is definitely avoiding the answer. Spin meisters are still alive after President Clinton's term. In fact, the expert Spin Mesister is out campaigning for President Obama spreading his mannerisms to various states and nation. In Fact, David Axelrod worked for Clinton so they are of the same blend and trying to tell us what the definition of "is" is, 16 years later.

    Go Romney!

    For some Americans it seems the trouble with democracy is all these people voting.

    This was the intent of the early vote law passed this year to allow access to voting results before election day and close of day voting. But the law is flawed and unconstituional, it gives the tallies and voting results to candidates, political parties, lobbyist, specail interest groups, and party leaders before the elcecton dates in order to create ads and campaigns to manipulate voters. Why the news media is not reporting voting results is a mystery or support of illegal voting count release to manipulate the public.

    It is a against the state and federal law for voter count and vote resulsts be published or released until the close of day @ 8pm on Nov 6.

    We should repeal early voting and return to the absentee balloting system that is considered confidential and not available before election day. The invented excuse of voters getting to polls was a ruse to pass the law allowing the manipulation of voters.

    People who want to vote have never complained about access or getting to the polls, but many a day politicians have been greedy to voting results before an election and this early vote law of Utah gives it to them.

    Being raised by people, a lion would not be able to survive if released into the wild.

    Same with people raised by government programs.

    Which candidate will promote self reliance?
