Taking The Political Pulse Of Nevada
Taking The Political Pulse Of Nevada

AIR DATE: November 5, 2012

Clark County may have the majority of Nevada voters, but that doesn't mean areas in the rest of the state aren't paying close attention to the election. Washoe County is a big swing area for the state and some rural counties will have a big role to play in deciding the newly created congressional seat in Nevada. We'll talk with reporters from around the state about the election and what voters are talking about.

    There is clear evidence that overt prejudice in America has increased. A recent poll found that 51% of Americans now express overt anti-black sentiment, up from 48% in 2008. The lynching of black chairs and questioning of the President's citizenship are just two more examples.

    I would agree with the caller talking about his dissatisfaction with Heller and Berkley. Both have disappointed me in their conduct and professionalism. We deserve better. I would remind everyone that while it may seem to be a throw away vote, you can always choose "None of the above." Your vote counts, but if no one is going to work to earn it then don't give it up.

    Seriously we do need another party in our country. George Washington warned against Parties and mostly a 2 party system. It is divisive and panders to the lowest common denomitators of each side. Libertarians stand for Fiscal Responsibility, Social Acceptance, Individual Liberty and a true Free Market as opposed to corporate welfare, crony capitalism or bowing to special interests like Labor. Educate yourself this and each election cycle. The DNC and RNC have been blocking other parties to keep the duopoly since 1987.

    I am a Republican, but I can't vote for Romney. I don't hate gays, I don't hate Mexicans, I don't hate the poor. When did the GOP give up on responsible budgets and individual liberty and change the platform to homophobia, racism, misogyny and religious fundamentalism? Rockefeller, Goldwater, Reagan, these are real Republicans. The current crop of Tea Party members have ruined the party for rational citizens.

    Hi SHIMON... There are other parties... Gary JOhnson is running on the LIbertarian ticket and is a viable candidate, inspite of the efforts to lock him out. Fiscally responsible, Socially Accepting and promoting all civil and individual liberties, which is lacking from each party. He does not support the NDAA, He is going to bring troops home, will not bomb Iran and is looking to balance the budget and not be bought off by large party interests or special interests. I am voting Libertarian accross the board to hopefully help rise a 3rd party, why not consider it for just one election... at least this way it is not a lesser evil choice.
