Decision 2012 is the name the media has given the campaign for the President of the United States. On Tuesday November 6, 2012 the American people will go to the polls to vote. The process leading up to the vote consists of three steps: 1. The Republican Convention, where Mitt Romney accepts the party's nomination. 2. The Democratic Convention, where Barack Obama accepts the party's nomination. 3. The Presidential and Vice Presidential debates. News coverage on this race is broadcast every day. They cover the hot button issues like; abortion, same-sex marriage, Obama care, social security, retirement, etc. They also interview major political figures, and they speak to political analysts about how they size up the race. Religion has been brought into this particular race, because Mitt Romney is a Mormon, and the Republican part has certain positions on abortion, which are part of their formal platform. The Republican party has been accused by the Democratic party of getting chummy with the religious right. Likewise the Democratic Party has been accused by the Republican party, of getting chummy with the gay and lesbian lobbyists. In every Presidential election in our American history, things get down and dirty, when it comes to slinging dirt at the opposition. It has become a part of the political process every four years. The only problem with it, is that the whole process makes the general American populace that much more distrusting of politicians in general. This time is no different, and the next one will be like deja vu.
