Barack Obozo or Mitt Donkey?
Watching from an unbiased perspective, and just judging them on their debates…they are both horrendous. However Mitt comes off a lot less trustworthy than O-town.
I feel bad for Obama supporters. Their candidate has, in almost all instances, continued on with the policies of the Bush administration, and has broken almost every campaign promise he made. On the other hand, they’ve got Mitt Romney, who is a Liberal’s worst nightmare.
I’m anti-big-government, so both candidates are reprehensible to me. But, since Bigger Government seems to be direction of the US, I think we’re better off disrupting who has the power.
I am not voting for Obama.
I may vote for Mitt Romney.
I may vote 3rd party.
I imagine it’s hard for presidents to make campaign promises and then actually deliver them all once elected… they inherit a whole clusterfuck and they probably underestimate how difficult it will be to change things. I find it hard to understand this whole republican vs democrat stuff, seems to me like some stupid, arbitrary division that just brings down the productivity of government.
I think the US should bring in our Winston Peters and Hone, shit that would stir the pot.
^^ Haha Winston Peter and Hone would mix shit up for sure.
The US system was designed that way. For good reason.
America votes for a President, yet the President happens to be a lame duck that can’t pass any of his ideas through the house – because it’s run by the opposite party.
Seems like a pretty hopeless position to me. Up the creek without a paddle!
In the UK, I vote conservative.
In America, I would vote for Obama on the basis that the Republican party comes attached to a bunch of social values that belong in the dinosaur age.
It must suck to believe in fiscal conservatism when the party that promotes smaller government also promotes an ideology that is okay with 40 million people having no health coverage, or women not being able to choose what to do with their bodies…
All things considered, it has to be Obama.
The Economist pretty much summed up my views: https://www.economist.com/news/leader…bill-which-one
Agreed, and this is why I try to avoid watching/discussing politics here in the states. There’s no strong party that supports both fiscal conservatism and social liberalism. So lame.
If I was American, I’d vote Gary Johnson (he’s on the ballot in 47 states) is the most libertarian and has a decent platform.
Yep, I think the Republicans will be forced to move towards the center ground on social issues by 2020.
The way the American demographic is changing, it won’t be long until states like Texas turn blue. And when that happens, the only way for the Republicans to stay relevant will be to move towards the center.
It’s messed up. There are economic policies that the Democrats have gotten all wrong, and I think the only reason Obama will stay in power tomorrow is because there is no truly progressive alternative.
So Obama did it. Now time to make some money off the post-election results
Bonus points if you use this image:
I voted Johnson. I identify most with the libertarian party.
Califonia is always a guaranteed democrat win anyway, I just wish he could have gotten his 5% popular vote, which would have secured a federal campaign grant for the libertarian party (and some legitimacy/media attention) for the next election.
