Who do you think will win/who will you vote for and why?
im not an us resident so i dont get to vote, but from what i gather, i would vote obama if i could.
reason being that i wouldnt trust romney as far as i could throw him. hes constantly changing his mind on stuff if it makes him look better or more attractive for a voter, he doesnt have ANY plan. whenever i read about stuff he plans, its always just the final result, like less taxes, more jobs, fuck obama, but never, not once did he give any kind of explanation as to how he'd possibly do this.
and when he does, its ridiculous.
his so valued experience with the market and economy is based on borderline crime, then theres even more lieing with the whole tax debate. obviously this man is screwing the us tax system since always.
he apparently approves of lies in his anti obama tv spots too.
all in all, yes, obama didnt save america in 4 short years and may not be able to do it in 4 more (consider this: making the world a better place is complicated), but with romney, your country has no chance. at all. unless you are a filthy rich millionaire, there is nothing to win by voting for romney
having said that, i still fear that the sheer amount of money and all the lies this guy has available to use + this whole voting time thing where key-democratic demographics will apparently be disadvantaged, he may win still.
but i also hope that, should it come to that, the people will realize and force him to step down. chances are, he'll go down like nixon or something
Its kinda rude to ask who your voting for isn't it? Voting is pretty private Mister.
Personally, for this election...
The Presidential race really only matters if the one who wins also is fortunate enough to have both houses of Congress controlled by his party. If Obama wins and the Democrats take control of the House and keep the Senate, then things might get done. If Romney wins and the Republicans keep the House and get control in the Senate, then things might get done. Any other combination of circumstances just means at least 2 more years of pissing contests.
I entirely disagree, the most important thing a president can do is pick Supreme Court justices which is the #1 reason I will vote for Osbama Bin Hussein
Who will win? Well, it definitely won't be the U.S. citizens.
Oh god this is going nowhere good. I hope a mod locks this.
hmmm ... you've got a point. Guess I'll have to cancel out your vote then LOL.
You are right though ... there probably will be some retirements in the next term, but who it is will largely depend on the outcome of the election. Conservative justices tend to sit put when a liberal is in the White House, and vice versa. Although Ginsburg, Scalia, Breyer, and Kennedy are all older than dirt, they've all probably got at least 4 more years in 'em, and they know it. If Ginsburg and Breyer didn't think they could last another 4 years they would've already retired so Obama could appoint liberal replacements. So unless one of the justices dies (and yeah, obviously it could happen) there probably won't be any cataclysmic shifts in the balance regardless of the outcome of the election. But, ya never know, so can't blame for taking that as a serious consideration.
I don't live there, i'm Canadian. I don't follow the worlds news, but I used to. Obama seems like a good guy then. I don't know this Romney Shomney guy so No for him.
Obama because he's the least worst option.
I am voting for Obamney. Both great candidates, but only one has what it takes, who will be victorious? Who will die... lose? We will find out soon enough.
I dislike both of them. Obama has already proven to be inept in office (though after all the shit Bush left behind I can't blame him too much), and Romny is not going to make anything better. Personally I think Ron would've have gotten some shit done where we need it the most right now. Here, in the USA. Sadly, looking back, I don't think there's been a decent president since Clinton (Clinton wasn't that good either, but whatever). Congress and the Senate both need some fresh blood and young faces to make some decisions and the Judicial system needs a similar workout. So, I don't like either of them and I won't be casting my vote either way since voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.
Everytime I look at Romney I think: 'this guy will wage war against the whole world, and lose'
He's way too outrageous.
You do realize that Obama massively escalated troop levels in Afghanistan and is selectively killing all over the place in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and who knows where else with frequent unmanned drone strikes, right?? Almost 300 drone strikes in Pakistan alone under Obama, over 5 times more than Bush. Plenty of war going on already and you're worried about the other guy because of a feeling you get when you look at him?? Okay.
If you have gone to the store and had to buy a loaf of bread or some milk or had to fill your gas tank or looked for a job I don't see how you could vote for Obama. He's been a complete disaster for the average working person. Basically if you sign your checks on the front you'll vote for Romney and if you sign your checks on the back you'll be for Obama or if your so young that you don't need to buy the staples of life. I thnk Romney will win big. Obama has lost the razzle dazzle, he has no record to run on so he's waging a campaign of silly smears. All the enthusiasm is among Romney supporters so yeah I don't see a path to victory for Obama
I'm not getting into no political opinions.
All I said is what I see Romswhatever doing. For all we know, he could triple all the numbers you just stated.
Politics and Leaders isn't as plain and simple as people think.
Obama, because while he hasn't got much done, he didn't break everything. I'm not sure that would still be true with Romney as president.
I see no discernible difference between either of them as they're both paid off by the same factions.
Honestly the differences between Romney and Obama are very small. They're both are back by rich champaign donors. They don't really care about anyone else besides the people who already have money and the people who run giant corporations.
I mean look at this http://www.politicalcompass.org/uselection2012
There is no significant statistical evidence that Obama and Romney are different.
It would be like choosing between a PS3 and an Xbox 360...but both systems only played Madden.
If I have to pick, Obama because he did bring a closure to 911 (bin Laden).
However, everyone knows that regardless who win the race, there will be no significant difference. Both are backed by political parties; contrary to what George Washington wanted.
