The current US Presidential candidates from the Republican and Democratic Party as well as the mainstream media have not surprisingly apparently overall continued to neglect the needs of the poor with some noteworthy exceptions previously identified (e.g., see The Hygiology Post article dated October 1, 2012 : US Presidential Candidates Need to Address Poverty and Hunger Better and Not Neglect The Needs of The Poor).
According to the US Census Bureau information released last month nearly one in six Americans were living in poverty last year (https://www.census.gov/newsroom/releases/archives/income_wealth/cb12-172.html; obtained on 10/1/2012).
Living in poverty can be hazardous to your health.
The probability of a third party candidate having a realistic chance of winning or of even obtaining one legitimate electoral vote in the 2012 US Presidential Election does currently seem extremely low.
Notwithstanding the opinion expressed in the preceding sentence, readers may obviously choose to research and/or vote for other US Presidential Candidates for a variety of reasons. Potentially useful resources for researching the candidate positions is to utilize The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 1992 as well as considering level of intuition of the candidate. One list of current 2012 US Presidential Candidates is shown on the Project Vote Smart web site(www.votesmart.org/election/2012/P/NA#.UIF8HuO61bA; obtained on 10-19-2012).
The 2012 United States Presidential Candidates themselves or their representatives are each invited to comment, make recommendations, and/or add to the information in The Hygiology Post. Also, all of the 2012 United States Presidential Candidates are invited to be interviewed (for almost any purpose and in basically any format they choose to be interviewed) by and write an article for publication in The Hygiology Post.
The Hygiology Post welcomes feedback from readers as to whether the articles (individually and/or collectively) help fulfill its vision and mission.
