And for those of you who loathe the Clintons more than anything else, she has also just lost a voter. Now the choice is in your hands levitra cost. Go out and talk to people close to you who are disenchanted with their traditional political party. Engage in these sorts of conversations, and begin to take votes, two at a time, away from the duopoly.
