To all of my conservative friends who do not support the concept of participating in a petition to secede from the union I offer up this explanation. Of course there is no possibility of secession by means of these petitions, but I truly believe the discourse brought about by them will draw attention to the concept of federalism, something Americans sorely need to be educated on.

When President Obama told supporters in Ohio on Friday that "Voting is the best revenge," even members of his campaign knew how small and petty it sounded. Obama campaign manager Jim Messina earlier today made a pathetic attempt to turn the comment around on Mitt Romney, tweeting that "the Romney campaign's message today is revenge."
It seems Reuters is doing what they can to lend Messina a hand, today offering up the headline, "As campaign roars to close, Romney and Obama talk 'revenge.'" Of course, if you read a few paragraphs down, you'll find Romney's statement on the matter, delivered at campaign appearances yesterday: " spoke to an audience and said voting is the best revenge.

President Barack Obama and Former Gov. Mitt Romney participated in a candidates debate at Lynn University on Monday, October 22. Below is the full transcript of tonight’s debate.
SPEAKERS: FORMER GOV. MITT ROMNEY, R-MASS.,
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
BOB SCHIEFFER, MODERATOR
SCHIEFFER: Good evening from the campus of Lynn University here in Boca Raton, Florida. This is the fourth and last debate of the 2012 campaign, brought to you by the Commission on Presidential Debates.
This one’s on foreign policy. I’m Bob Schieffer of CBS News. The questions are mine, and I have not shared them with the candidates or their aides.
SCHIEFFER: The audience has taken a vow of silence — no applause, no reaction of any kind, except right now when we welcome President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.
Gentlemen, your campaigns have agreed to certain rules and they are simple. They’ve asked me to divide the evening into segments. I’ll pose a question at the beginning of each segment. You will each have two minutes to respond and then we will have a general discussion until we move to the next segment.
Tonight’s debate, as both of you know, comes on the 50th anniversary of the night that President Kennedy told the world that the Soviet Union had installed nuclear missiles in Cuba, perhaps the closest we’ve ever come to nuclear war. And it is a sobering reminder that every president faces at some point an unexpected threat to our national security from abroad.
So let’s begin.
SCHIEFFER: The first segment is the challenge of a changing Middle East and the new face of terrorism. I’m going to put this into two segments so you’ll have two topic questions within this one segment on the subject. The first question, and it concerns Libya. The controversy over what happened there continues. Four Americans are dead, including an American ambassador. Questions remain. What happened? What caused it? Was it spontaneous? Was it an intelligence failure? Was it a policy failure? Was there an attempt to mislead people about what really happened?
Governor Romney, you said this was an example of an American policy in the Middle East that is unraveling before our very eyes. Read the rest of this entry »
Jenny clearly sees what is at stake in this year’s Presidential Election. Why is it that nearly 50% of the electorate doesn’t see it? Jenny makes a clear argument on both sides.
