No one is less of a fan of Harper than me. But to be fair it looks like we have another Trudeau prime ministry coming up.(yep I am calling this one early)

What baffles me is that theres a large portion of the United States that look at a guy blatantly lie to them and say "yeah that sounds like a great guy to vote for."

I hate to play this card, and I say it with much reluctance, but even a die-hard conservative has to have problems with the insane platform that Romney/Ryan run under and it brings into play the thoughts of race issues.

Obviously after the Bush debacle the US needed spin doctoring badly. Obama was the great face for that. Now they are getting ready, it seems, to elect someone who has less of a clue than Bush and his Vice-President nominee is even worse.

Here in Canada we voted in Harper again, which although idiotic is completely the fault of the other parties for having extremely weak candidates in the running.( I wasn't one of the "we" that voted him in, I helped out with the NDP campaign)

I've yet to read a good legitimate reason to vote in an extremist like Romney and I am baffled that so many people are just willing to throw there votes away on candidates that have little to no chance. Voting is something a lot of good men fought and died for and to see it wasted like this is disheartening.

There are no legitimate reasons to vote for either Obama or Romney. They're basically the exact same candidate, with the only real difference being that Romney is a Mormon and Obama is a Christian.

I'd rather vote for someone who has little chance of winning than sell my soul to the two party machine by voting for one of their hand-picked candidates.

A vote for a third party isn't being wasted. Hell, the Founding Fathers warned against a two-party system, but yet here we are. They fought for the right to vote for whoever you want; not for the right to vote for only one of the two parties.

EDIT- Plus, Romney isn't an extremist. He represents the norm in modern day American politics, as does Obama. Hardly an extremist.

I completely agree with your thoughts on the two party system but at a time when that is sadly the case and you have the chance that someone like Romney can get in, its hard to take that leap of faith that he won't.

Not saying that Obama is the greatest but he has done a lot for your country and some of the stuff he couldn't do was because it was blocked by the Republican party. here's a party that would rather sabotage your country to get into office than work together to make your nation stronger.

Speaking from outside of the US. I am Canadian and most of my friends are from different countries, Morocco, Portugal, etc the US is no longer seen by outsiders as the super power that it once was. I'm your neighbour over here and I'd love to see the United States come back to its glory days of yesteryear but the decisions being made is shifting you guys farther down.

Just giving an international perspective here not meant as a personal affront in any way :-)

Yes, he's made us more dependent on horribly mismanaged government programs all on the tax payer's dollar (charity isn't reaching into someone else's pocket and giving it to the poor, that's called THEFT), raised healthcare costs, got us into multiple new foreign wars and is considering more, tripled our number of troops in Afghanistan, bailed out big businesses, continues to create more and more foreign enemies via funding civil wars abroad and ordering continuous DRONE STRIKES which kill innocent civilians in other countries. People thought George W Bush made everyone hate us? LOL. Obama does all the same shit and then some. Why do people ignore this fact?

He's done a lot. If only any of it was good for us.

There is beginning to emerge the very real possibility Obama is re-elected based on the Electoral College but loses the poplar vote.

The national polls are for Romney, while the swing state polls are for Obama.

So, Republicans will be infuriated but the worst possible thing they could ever do in a moment of anger is try to repeal the electoral college. They will doom themselves tremendously if they did that.

The Republican party needs to lose this election. They need to see a neo-con version of Obama isn't going to get the job done. They need to get behind the liberty-minded Rand Paul in 2016. If Romney wins then I fear our sharply partisan way of thinking will cause Republicans to think everything is great even though Romney is doing all the same shit Obama did, and the liberty movement's momentum will be slowed.

By the way Jeb Bush said he thinks Texas could be blue by 2016. I think that's a tad too early, but Republicans are really in for an uphill battle if they lose the strangle hold on Texas in future elections.

Default Re: Poll - Obama (D) vs Romney (R) - Vote

I was hoping that Romney would get obliterated in the hopes that the GOP would see that Neo-Conservatism is killing the party, but now it looks like Romney might just win this thing, so that hope is out of the question.

Romney being close isn't due to be people liking Romney tbh. It's due to the fact that Obama is p. awful, and people are realizing that. Damn shame they didn't see the same thing with Romney during the primaries.

The Republican party botched the primaries so hard. So close to getting a guy in there who knows what the fuck is going on and isn't afraid of following the truth. Instead they went with the delusional neo-con. Yay.

In retrospect, Ron never had a chance. The media (especially FOX) ignored him, and was ignored during the debates as well. Luckily, it seems that RAND is getting some love from the GOP establishment, and the NEO-CONS seem to like him as well, and see him as the "sane" Paul family member, yet him and Ron basically have the same views. Just goes to show how many sheep there are, and how much the media really matters in this nation. They'll go with whatever the media tells them.

I've always wondered how people could like Rand but not Ron, but then I realized the GOP establishment doesn't absolutely hate Rand. He has a fighting chance in 2016, especially if all of Ron's support the past two elections go towards him.
