    EDIT: I took the liberty of fixing your poll, it was a big ol' mess, hope you don't mind. Split Hillary & Obama votes down the middle, and took into account hanging chads. So scientific! -mthrnite

    I'm not in the US, but you guys really do need to vote for someone who will give you a universal healthcare system. American healthcare sucks balls.


    I would probably be dead now if I lived in the US. God bless the National Health Service [​IMG]

    Doesn't matter who you vote for, they will all change their agenda as soon as they get in office anyway. What they "say" they're going to do and what they actually do are two completely different things.

    You know how America gets razzed for being a bunch of idiots in other countries? It's the government's fault for that perception.

    I'm not voting for any of those con artists.

    We tried that for kids, but oh wait who Vetoed it? Bush...
    Millions of $$ spent in Iraq a day. Say we wouldnt be at war? Would he still be willing to spend the money if were were not at war? All those billions (if not trillions!) of dollars spent... Universal health care anyone?

    Well considering in all likelihood it would be Clinton vs Guiliani I went with the Republican (if you can call em that considering things...which is good.)

    I find Clinton, what she stands for, and how she wants to transform this nation a frightening thing. I have zero interest in a eastern european socialist democracy type nation what so ever. Oh and by the way if you look at her actions, not listen to her spin Clinton there has a very similar train of thought, record, and stance on things as old GW. So really, if you do want more of the same as far as outside of social programs go...have fun. She's like a homeland socialist version of GW on the national/int'l level. And I for one hope we don't get universal healthcare as it's not my goddamn job to pay more out of my biweekly paychecks to someone who can't afford it...I'm very against handouts except for the temporary kind when someone in true need really needs it (ie: unemployment which dries up in 6mo.) The reason our healthcare system sucks ass is not to be solved by having the gov't pay for it (ie: US) the issue at hand is greed of the doctors, hospitals, and equipment makers/suppliers. There truly is no need to have a hospital charge someone for a weekend stay around $30000 or more depending how f'd up you are. An ambulence drive to the emergency room shouldn't cost a $1000 either. The problem is greed across the board, and solving it should not be the gov't just making everyone pay those greedy fucks what they want. I hate gov't regulation and all that, but they need to clamp down on the source of the problem, not the taxpayer to feed into it. This is exactly why those who really can afford it (much like that news piece this week of dentistry in Britain) will fly to a place like India or Egypt to get superior care for a 1/4 the cost as they don't fucking rip you off with jacked up prices...you pay what it is really costing!

    I would like to see Obama win.

    I mean voting for Hilary Clinton is just ASKING for more terrorism acts in the US.
    All the other countries would consider us weak and vulnerable.

    If you'd ever took the time read The Sun, you would know that MRSA and CDIF were brought into our country by immigrants! Gay immigrants! Gay, drug dealing, terrorist, immigrant, paedophiles who steal our jobs and exploit the benefits system! [​IMG]


    Seriously though, I still prefer the NHS to the capitalist madness that the American government have put in place. It's so "un-American".

    Maybe the idea of "universal healthcare" scares some people...
    But do we not pay taxes that allegedly fund our schools? What about social security that pays someone else? I see alot of money begin used in many places that IMO seem to have no use... It would be wonderful if it could be used in places that are more important.

    Perhaps universal healthcare is not the solution at this moment. But I still think its too damn hard to pay for medical emergencies. A weekend stay in the hospital to be $10,000's of dollars and as mentioned a ambulance trip over $1000. (Long story short my friend broke 3 teeth. A 10 minute ride to the hospital cost him $1500. Even charged him $50 for the neck brace that he could "keep as a souvenir") I would like to see some help for those less fortunate though.

    Isn't Christopher Walken attempting to stand?

    I'd go for Clinton as it'll upset some of those who'd hate to see a woman in the Whitehouse. Whoever wins will probably be bought off anyway.

    I'd pick obama from what I've seen of him. I'm not american though so can't vote. I doubt many people from the south would vote obama (from my limited knowledge of america)

    god damn republicans piss me off

    Its sad that "the racist south" still exists in a time like today. Havent we changed?


    I wouldnt say all republicans are bad people. They are gaining a bad reputation and image due to leaders whom happen to be very conservative and unwilling to compromise.

    I voted for an empty spot, and my empty spot disappeared. I want my vote back!

    Edit: I don't have much faith in my fellow Americans these days. If the Democratic choices are a woman or a black man, I think we'll have another Republican in office.
