Re: Poll - Obama (D) vs Romney (R) - Vote
Anyway kinda back on topic for the 2nd time (sorry guys), does nobody else find it bizarre that the American political system consists of a choice between centre right and extreme right? Yet they're portrayed as being complete opposites. Any other ideologies are shot down in flames immediately, it just couldn't happen. The Republicans scare people by comparing the Democrats to "European socialists" when they're not even close, they are more conservative than the actual conservative party in the UK! Yet their centre right position is as far to the left as Americans are willing to go. Strange.
And don't even get me started on healthcare. The fact that it's even an issue is fucked up to me, completely and utterly baffling. Perhaps our cultures are more different than they appear...
