In preparation for the latest face-off between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Annie Rose Strasser at Alternet has written a list of five facts that should be considered as viewers watch the debate. Be sure to read the article.

In the last presidential debate between Obama and Romney, Romney is thought to have told no less than 27 lies in thirty eight minutes. How many will he attempt to tell tonight? The following link leads to a site where readers can pledge a dollar for every lie that Romney tells during tonight's debate: 

Doing so could help the Democratic Campaign Congressional Committee to fight back against Romney's attempts to deceive the American people by setting the record straight on his lies and distortions.

On the topic of Romney and China:

It would be remiss of me to not include a link to the workers blog, Bainport, where Bain Capital-owned Sensata workers are fighting against the outsourcing of their jobs to China. As a shareholder Romney stands to make a profit from the misery of American workers all in the name of the almighty dollar. Watch the following video to learn more about how much Romney really knows about the benefits of outsourcing despite his denials in the last debate.

Watch this excellent and moving video:

The debate can be watched at Politico who are hosting a "live special debate edition" starting at 8pm EST.
