    Last night, I witnessed the Mayor of Los Angeles preside over a fraudulent vote held three times in succession, and passed even though it was resoundingly voted down.
    The negative push from the delegates underscores the radical flavor that permeates the democratic party.
    Im a proud Independent and not impressed.

    My family and I were registered Republicans but Mitt Romney is a pathological lier and as evil as Bush. I am proud to say we will be all voting for President Obama.

      Thank you, J. Goodyear! Romney was on Fux Noise yesterday doubling down on the LIE that Obama has eliminated the work requirement for welfare recipients. He knows that's a lie and keeps repeating it. These people are shameless–not fit to run a lemonade stand, much less the country. Their entire m.o. is just to LIE and keep REPEATING LIES. The press is also generally worthless, because these LIARS are NOT being called out on their LIES. I'm so grateful that at least one other person can see this.

    One feels proud to be an American when you hear President Clinton and President Obama speak. With all the that is going on in the world you know men like these made America what it was.

    As an independent I am voting for President Obama.
