Obama vs. Romney info
My mother wishes me to post my many polictical freak outs "somewhere else" on the internet because my older family members are feeling attacked by all the TRUTH I am posting on Facebook, so I suppose a political forum would be the right meduim.
I have no one to debate with. No one is ANSWERING ME. What the Hell is wrong with people that Romney is even getting the TINEST bit of consideration?!
I know this is just a small part of a very lovely life, but Jesus H. Christ, I don't understand how we are not banging our heads on the brick walls!!!
Please, someone...I implore sense and goodness and...honor! Is this totally gone in our government?

From my point of view I can happily say I don't care who wins the US presidency all I cared about was that Bush went away and Palin stayed away as they were in my opinion huge threats to world security (read they were dangerous nuts).
You need to understand from a foreign point of view US politics really is of no interest we have our own issues to deal with, I guess from the little I know of Romney I would probably prefer Obama because despite being a real politician he is at least intelligent and can string a sentence together where as Romney comes across as a bit of an idiot but not a dangerous idiot.
Now in a more general sense I suspect most people have just become so disenchanted with politics in general that neither candidate is believed or liked (as it is around the world) so even though people will invariably turn out and vote for someone (mostly because of party affiliations) no one really has any faith in either of them to achieve anything they promise and as I have already said in this economic climate people are really more interested in putting food on the table than arguing about two people that are not going to do anything anyway.

I do see what you are saying though, disenchanted, certainly. I just wish people would give into this mindset that nothing the population does will matter. Why aren't we holding our leader TO do something?
Disenchanted. Disheartened. But hopeful....

George...I will not comment on McCain/Palin, nor do I very much care for Obama/Biden. However, the fear in my heart for our nation if Romney/Ryan get in the White House is unbearable. The fear I have for my own body and the body of my fellow women is unbearable.
Maybe you don't give a **** because you are a man and you don't have to worry about the government probing your penis or making you bear the fruit of another's man's rape, but it is a very real and tangible fear that should be in every woman's heart here in the USA if Romney/Ryan get the presidency.

Sadly democracy has failed, it has been purchased by special interest groups and short of revolution there is no way to fix it.

I have been pondering deeply on the election for quite some time, I have to vote being as it would be a crime to our ideals of "fair" election not to.
However to be honest I feel that for both canidates voting for this election is more or less damage control than the path to prosperity. My analytical method behind this is finding which of these canidates is going to cause the LEAST amount of harm to our ailing system.
I really hate saying this, I really do being as the knee jerk reaction I'm bound to get, but after observing the trends of what our society places value on , and who exactly obtains the lion's share of said value.
Then looking at the Presidency for change is like turning on a water facet to put out the lights.
It just defies common logic.
Money talks, it just doesn't talk names. People know politicians, so they blame them.
That's why I don't really touch much on who people are going to vote for, just a mass of frustrated individuals all vying towards the first thing they can vent on , IE: The president.
Because they know him by name, they don't the names of lobyist's and foreign interest dignitaries. The same ones who set up the overseas undercutting manufacturing, the same one's who persuade Closed doors Congressional meetings to sending weapon's to their country which spurrs anti America hatred.
The same Corporate sponsors who basically buy out the next presidential candidate by finacing their overpriced and inflated campgains and pull the IOU card everytime they need policy passed to bypass evnviromental regulations to have foreign companies buy our gas and run trucks through your front yard.
(This is business as usual folks, and stop saying "why can't an average Joe run for President?" This is why , under these conditions it ain't happening so stop asking.)
Case in point all of the self righteous Obama hater's, people who under the same exact circumstances didn't say a word about certain policies under the previous administration.
We need names people, and you know they are so hard to find?, because if as a nation, meaning citizens thought this through and got a list of names of those responsible for siphoning federal funding and creating of policy that benfits a very very select few, of which many are abroad. Then the country would be on the verge of a nationwide riot. They know this and as long we are pacified by "it's all on government" then by the time we collectivly wake up as a nation everything is cut, packaged and sold, and these morons have high tailed off to their summer homes.
Bring out the bread lines ladies and gents, if we continue to march towards this so and so obiviously ignore the problem by only treating the symptoms than this cancer will kill our country right out from under our feet.
Awareness is a dangerous thing, and we today as a society need it more than ever. Another reason I don't talk much on the side show of the election.
It's funny to think that close to 200 years ago a man who walked out of the Senate won election and popular vote and took a nation gripped in debt and did something that only happened once in one mandate, turned it into a surplus.
Accomplished by removing outside influences and abuses of Federal monetary allocation.
Now men today in the same capacity work with other men outside of government who are hard at work selling it.
We just need to figure out a way to get people to turn off the TV and stop playing the blame game.
If that's all we are capable of then I suppose naturally we are destined for second place on the world stage until the end of time.

Initially people were elected because they were known in a region for doing good now you are given a politician to vote for by which ever party you now follow blindly whose only difference from the other guy is party logo or tie colour.
(This is not just a US thing this is a world wide thing, your choice is politician clone 1 or 2 from the presidential cloning facility on Wall Street just as mine is prime minister clone 1 or 2).
I really do not like Obama but the one thing I will give him is that he managed to convince people that he could make a difference which meant at some point he understood that people want a change in the way politics works sadly he has not shown any sign of delivering on his promises but by comparison it seems to me that Romney is doing the mandatory I oppose all Obama stands for (as required by a challenger) which means your choice is a guy that knows change is needed but cant deliver or someone that actively opposes change out of preference to a system that has clearly failed.

To become President of the USA all you need is loads of money to plug your message any where you can and especially on TV. From what I have seen of Romney he is a legend in his own mind [when he can find it] still it is all about the cash you splash around on the campaign trail and all the favours you can promise your rich self interest groups that invest in the campaign and lets face it they call the tune and not the people when that person is elected.
