We're smart enough to not waste our vote on a third party fringe candidate, which we all know is a vote for the incumbent. PLEASE check out these resources before blindly voting for the DIA tax out of some sense of obligation. They have been crying wolf about their finances for DECADES - check this out: http://books.google.com/books?id=DSAj_yQRt9wC&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false For a good overview and links to their financial statements look here: www.http://affordablepublicservice.com/DIA_Millage.html They're a great asset to the community and I wish them the best, but to be MISLED by $2 million dollars in deceptive prime time TV ads - how broke are they, really? They're at "risk" all right - risk of the same mismanagement and bloated salaries and perks that you and I could never imagine - $400K+ salaries and benefits, spousal travel, PAID HOUSING for the director ( from 99-09 ), PAID "volunteers" costing over $700k in one year - please - VOTE NO !

A vote for G. Johnson is a vote for the failure Obama. Johnson will get no more than 1% of the vote. Don't waste your vote. This country cannot sustain another 4 years under Obama.
