Comatose, undecided voter

The political speeches of both parties are nothing more than demagoguery and smokescreen. It is a world of mirage, where anything you say, hear or promise is not real.
You see, these politicians live in a world which is totally isolated from the hard-working Americans, and it crosses their path only during the time of election, only to be isolated again after election.
The president has no record and Mr. Romney has no articulated platform to run on. What could be more idiotic than running on a platform of transparency and refusing to release the birth certificate and income tax returns?
Now through election, both parties will spend millions of dollars bombarding airways, not with the discussion of solutions and real issues facing America, but hypnotizing the American public with false promises and negative ads.
As an undecided voter I don’t know if it is better to be in an induced coma now through election or in a deep coma after election.
