Without opposing voices debate is a sham

For casual voters the debate between Mitt Romney and Barrak Obama tonight, October 3, 2012, will mark the first step in deciding who will be the next chief executive of the federal government. Americans will sit captivated as two candidates with very similar philosophies on the role of the state offer up heated rhetoric and talking points meant to propogate the  illusion of a choice in our so called two party system. As the only two contenders allowed to sit on stage we will listen as they differ on what amount Americans should be taxed on their labor, on what extent we should intervene in the affairs of other countries, on how much money should be printed out of thin air by the federal reserve, and on exactly what is the best way for the government to “take care of the poor” and manage the economy.
