Wow! Opinions are our given right but suggesting on how to vote is not. Anyone that takes the comments here and uses them as a guideline to vote might as well stay home election day. I just went thru and READ each amendment MYSELF. They ridiculously lengthy and seem to be written by a babbling lawyer. But I found if you read it thru the second time there is one key sentence that is the actual question- the rest is just there to confuse you. So take the extra time at home to pre-read these and write your responses down to take to the polls. It would be crazy & overwhelming to read these at the polls for the first time. Thank you Patch for bringing this information to the voters! Get with a friend, family member or neighbor to help understanding them and hopefully it is explained to you truthfully and without bias.

MUST read: "Support for Kill List and NDAA make Obama and Romney Unfit for Office" http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/reawakening-liberty/2012/nov/2/support-kill-list-and-ndaa-make-obama-and-romney-u/ Make a special note to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party Presidential candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. It is a violation of the 1st Amendament rights of third party candidates, and a violation of the free speech rights of every American, for their voices to be silenced. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1

In MA, a booklet is mailed to voters a month or so BEFORE the election... states what a 'YES' or 'NO' vote would mean to the questions being voted on. Most of the time, the questions are very confusing; agree?

Voted Yes on all except for Firve. A lot of us out here actually read and study the amendments. Instead of wasting time telling others how to vote.

Sharpie. Whey didn't Johnson run for Senator?
