LMFAO........

I hate the way the system works, you cna only vote for a select few who are all rubbish. You don't truly have any big effect on the goverment.

Cool Video. I saw the other day that the percentage of US citizens living under the Poverty Line has not changed by even a fraction of a percentage point since 2008. People keep claiming things are better and that Obama is due to accolades, but who exactly is better off? The Poor (No change), the Middle Class (No Change) or the Rich (Richer?). Why do the poor and the minorities and anyone with a brain think to vote for this guy? He's done next to nothing for them in 2012 practical terms. Savings 4, 8, or 20 years down the Road? How does that help starving Joe now? Why does Joe keep voting for this guy? The only reason I see is that Obama pulls out the Celebrity Factor everywhere he goes. People love celebrites and take their uneducated opinons WAY to seriously then they deserve.

As an English girl I don't know much about US politics, nor am I that interested. However given a choice based on the little I know, I would choose Obama over Mitt the Twit, as Obama is not a religious nut and seems like a good guy.

Obama. Admittedly, I have been known to be a terrible judge of character though. It's purely based on that video leak of Romney's. I don't know enough about both sides.

Savvy?

that's unfair, they also ask others to help them invade and bomb.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

In this election I'd throw my vote in with Obama.

it's ironic that in certain circles of the Republican party, that's one of the things that people hold against him: that he's not an ovetly Bible bashing God fearing Biblical literalist, so obviously he must be a Muslim .... :no:

Obama leads at 'nearly foolproof' vote in iconic Paris bar

PARIS - President Barack Obama is leading against challenger Mitt Romney in a straw poll at Harry's Bar, an iconic Paris watering hole which has held a vote ahead of US elections since 1924 and only got the results wrong twice.

The birthplace of the Bloody Mary and the haunt of the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Francis Scott Fitzgerald, Harry's New York Bar -- a small corner of Manhattan in the heart of Paris -- is the best election soothsayer, its owner said.

"We are the most dependable opinion poll," said Isabelle MacElhone with a wink, speaking of the more that 100-year-old institution.

The only two failed results were the 1976 election won by Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush's 2004 victory.

My vote would go on Ron Paul.

He's not perfect but as I've said before he's a Man surrounded by Demons. metaphorical of course)

He understands what the US needs in terms of Military action, the truth about the Middle East and has better ideas to fix the econemy. I don't un derstand why the US public doesn't vote for him, he'd stop the impending war on Iran and pull all the troops home.

I honestly do not care much. I am sure our countries will always have a strong bond, and both have to be very careful about their presidentship. It's rough times for a US president.

How so?
The election is a farse because in reality americans have been given so few choices that you'd may-as-well not have an election.
Obama and Romney have been brought & payed for by big banks and buisiness, and by law they don't even have to declare their "owners"?
Sure there are third party candidates, but they are so largely ignored by the media that I would wager that most americans wont even know their names until they see them on the ballots and go "Dang? who's them?"

Also, when a-holes like romney own the companies that conduct some of the balot counting your just asking for trouble. & the fact the through a stupid electrol collage system that allows for senarios whereby the candidate with the most votes might still loose the race you have the question "Why bother?" imo, America the free is no longer.. There is no such thing as democracy anymore.

Why am I not surprised by the results here?  I may have missed one, but it seems that Obama is big overseas.  That is why I voted for someone else.  And this proves that people of like kind are attracted to each other.

Obama is big over seas because he's black... at least partially anyhow.  His mother is whiter than mine,
