    Where were you for the last 4 years? Neither of them should be allowed into office. >.

    Obama is still not as bad as Mitt. I was born and raised in Massachusetts and saw just how fast we lost all our jobs.
    If Mitt plans on doing what he did to Massachusetts, then there is no hope for America.

    Agreed, but Obama is still pretty bad. Both are going to destroy the USA if given the slightest chance. It's a lose lose situation.

    No, but the class interests they serve are quite obvious, even if they aren't simple. The Democrats and Republicans are essentially two sides of the same coin: That is, they both lie in the pocketbook of the rich and powerful. Obama has basically continued most or all of Bush's policies, and has even intensified them to boot. He also has not carried out a single one of his election promises--the failed closing of Guantanamo Bay and the Wall Street bailout being the tip of the iceberg. There is no basis for thinking that Obama will carry out a qualitatively different policy than Romney. The process of social degeneration (that is, the gutting of social programs and living and working conditions) may appear more benign or act slower under a Democratic presidency, but it won't end up much different than what Romney has in store. When placed alongside his actual political record, Obama's positive and personal qualities, whatever they may be, appear largely irrelevant. In the end, it is only workers and youth--the majority of the American populace--who will suffer in the end.

    In this context Obama represents his party and himself quite accurately. He is a two-faced bourgeois politician, a warmonger, and a scoundrel.

    Both sides are already well underway in destroying the US. Our credit score was tanked while two sides were fighting instead of helping.

    George Washington once said in his Farewell address that political parties will do nothing but to seek more power and revenge in opposing parties, that political parties are enemies to the government.

    Obama actually knows what he's doing. The Republican ads are calling him out for the stimulus and Obamacare, but those are great things, and they either worked or will work.

    Neither of those things you mentioned will work. I'm all for a socialized healthcare plan, but Obamacare is bastardized and inefficient (I'd prefer something like what the Canadians or the British have). The stimulus is also a placebo that doesn't work well either.

    Honestly? I can't say it much matters. Romney is playing a dirty as all hell campaign. Then you have Obama.. Who is just.. A nuisance we put as our face. Either way we go, we have a hypocrite who can't stick to one thing... And we have some intellectually inept figure head who doesn't care for the people so much as his morals.

    You wouldn't get me out to the polls this year if you paid me. Don't citizen votes not matter anyways during presidential elections? Its all up to state electoral reps IIRC.


    Queue tinfoil hat crowd. :rolleyes:

    You have that a little backwards. The states tally up votes separate from other states, and the majority vote in the state decides which party the Electoral College votes go to. The number of EC votes depends on the state's population, so you were probably thinking of the fact that a few states basically control the election.

    No, the electoral college has total control over the votes. They can vote however they want regardless of state votes. Not that they necessarily do that sort of thing all the time, but it happens.

    Don't know who will win, but I'm pretty certain about who will lose: The American people.
