Jonathan Miller, an Obama supporter, and Ted Buerger, a Romney supporter, are two of the co-founders of No Labels. Here, each of them suggest what they'd like to hear from their candidate of choice in the closing days of Election 2012.
Voting needs to become more accessible and more convenient. Why don't election officials work to expand opportunities for citizens to vote? Here are three recommendations to improve our democracy and increase civic engagement.
What will get me to my polling place this year, more than anything else, is this: I believe Barack Obama will nominate Supreme Court Justices who will vote to overturn Citizens United, which wiped out reasonable limits on campaign funding. And Mitt Romney would appoint Supreme Court Justices who would uphold it.
Looking for the dead solid skinny on the upcoming presidential election? You've come to the right place. As a public service, we're going to tell you right here and now who wins this thing and why.
