Romney, Obama, or other?

The two of them are both shady corperatists. Not that it really matters considering United States currently uses the electoral system, but if RJ Harris, Gary Johnson, or Buddy Roemer count, one of them would get my vote. If I had to choose Obama vs. Romney I guess I’d go with Obama, soley because I think he’s capable of less than Mitt
Sorry to burst your bubbles, but Ron Paul ended his campaign due to lack of funding weeks ago. And Romney is up 950 something to Pauls 130 delegates(you need 1,150 to win). If you are going to vote for him, you might as well vote for Bill Clinton, its just throwing our vote away. I will be voting for Obama, seeing that Romney would probably destroy this country if he wins.
I agree that they are both terrible choices but I will probably vote for Romney just because I feel as though a president wont do as extreme policies when they have a chance of running for another term. If President Obama won again then he doesn’t have to worry about re-election.
i’m probably not going to vote because i havent been working and paying taxes for the last couple years.
lol @ people who think they can tell the government what to do without paying taxes. Would you keep doing what your boss told you if he stopped paying you?
but in seriousness, I’ll probably vote for Romney because I’m of the belief that the democrats fucked up the economy more than it already was with unnecessary bullshit
Romney all the way. He’s a living example of the ‘American dream’: came from a very poor family, went through many hardships, but studied/worked his ass off to get where he is today. If you put in the hard work, you deserve the rewards, as far as I’m concerned.
He knows how modern economy works, unlike Obama, and since our economy is in the shitter, he’s the best man for the job at this point in our history.
@v1kingfan, Obama’s so called pro-gay stance is total B.S. and only used for political leverage against Romney (as are 90% of the things he says). He says he’s pro gay, but then says that it’s okay for each individual state to decide the legalization of gay marriage or not. So likely no changes are going to be made. Basically he just said that he personally thinks gays should be able to marry, but giving them the right to do so is out of his hands. He’s a coward
Other. Obama vs. Romney is nothing more than Bad vs. Worse. Obama will continue to pose like a rock star, keep on apologizing for our situation as if it will eventually work, and do nothing while big corporations and the elite screw the middle class into oblivion, while Romney will actually be an active participant in our screwing. We pretty much have no choice BUT to vote 3rd party, otherwise things will probably continue getting worse either slower or faster, depending on who wins. It should be pretty obvious to everyone who has lived in the past ~12 years that both Democrats and Republicans are both simply representatives of Wall Street.
Its case of the lesser of 2 evils. As Cenk Uygur of TYT puts it “one is 5% in the right direction and the other, Romney, is 30% in the wrong direction.” This site’s mission is about question whats “normal” and conventional, i.e. conservative beliefs and views. I would hope more people would progressively, Green or Ron Paul (I agree with 75% of what he has to say).
@jpete011, Last time i checked I thought Romney was raised by millionaire parents. I think Obama is more of an example as someone who achieved the “American Dream,” the man came out of nowhere and from a poor upbringing. In my opinion it takes a lot of courage to say he supports gay marriage, it will get him some votes but at the same time he will lose some as well.
@sumtinprophetic, Good call on the write in. I think I’m going to vote for him. At first I thought it would be wasting my vote, but then I remembered partisan voting hasn’t necessarily done much for our country recently.
No he didn’t.
Wrong, he is only suspending active campaigning in states that have yet to vote in the primaries.
Ron Paul. Period.
My thoughts is that Ron Paul will campaign as a third party. I believe that was his plan all along. Enough of this two-party monopoly on politics. Democrats and Republicans both need to be kicked out. They no longer represent the values and the changing attitudes of the American majority.
