Undecided? Bullshit!

I often read and hear about those who identify themselves as “undecided” with respect to the candidate they intend to vote for in November. Undecided? To me, that means that such people: (a) have not and are not paying attention; (b) are brain damaged , or (c) seek attention, viewing themselves as somehow above the fray.

I could understand someone being “undecided” if the differences between the candidates were substantively nuanced. Yeah, it used to happen. History tells us that the substantive differences between Richard Nixon and JFK were not that great (It really was an image thing – I was around then).

By contrast, the differences between the two candidates this year could hardly be more palpable. One candidate believes that big government central planning, along with massive spending and high taxes is the way to invigorate the economy, while the other urges smaller government, lower taxes (for everyone), respect for private property and reliance on the free market system as the road to recovery.

For my part, I’ll take Door Number Two, and I could not possibly disagree more with those who choose Door Number One. But, for those who, despite the gargantuan differences between the two candidates, still claim to be “undecided,” I suggest that you stay home on Election Day and let the grownups sort this out.


  1. Candidate Number One is for smaller government and lower taxes.

    Candidate Number Two is Number Two.

  4. I know a few very intelligent people who are on the fence. They all believe Romney is best for the economy and most likely foreign policy(although like me they do worry about his stance on Iran-not the position but the seemingly quick call to arms). Nevertheless, these individuals are concerned about a number of social issues, including: abortion, same sex marriage, gun control, etc. Unfortunately, some of the ads posing the Republicans as anti-woman and the media bias work. I disagree with all except gun control and perhaps his too soon opinion about how to deal with the evil Iranians. This is a long winded way of saying that some undecideds are not “children” or stupid.

  5. Home run .How could anyone vote for or even think of voting for someone who wants to do what failed utterly in the USSR and Cuba as well as all other places it was tried ? Again today the master of envy and class warfare was calling for tax records .This is the same piece of crap who has spent millions to have his records sealed probably in part so no one could see he applied to school as a foreign student .His record is an abomination ,and it is sickening to watch morons like Juan Williams ,Eleanor Clift ,and Debby Blabbermouth Schultz trying to defend.It also is sickening seeing people ,including many athletes , supporting him because of his color . People who succeed based on performance should know better .

  6. Well John, it is well known that a lot more people voted for Obama solely because he is black than voted against him for the same reason. I don’t oppose Obama because his skin is black, I oppose him because his soul is.

  7. It could also be “undecided” is a polite way of saying “none of your damned business” – which would be me.
