Romney, Obama, or other?

The key to getting Politics back to some semblance of order and duty, we must get dark money out…….The very first step we should all make, is to contact every perosn we know, and talk about getting rid of Citizens United……….After that is gone, everyone should work towards a stark limit on money that can be spent……..”The Hope Lies with The Proles”
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.
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.
@v1kingfan, I mispoke. Yes, Romney was not necessarily raised by a poor family. However, his father was a self made man, worked his way up to become the CEO of American Motors and went through many hardships including turning his company around from the brink of bankruptcy. Yes they both became very wealthy and prosperous in the end, but it’s the story and their journey that means the most. You should read into it, their stories are both inspiring and quite extraordinary.
As for Obama and his announcement of his support of gay marriage, that was done completely for political reasons. Why didn’t he announce that in the beginning of his damn presidency? Why didn’t he do anything about it? 1. He’s a coward, and 2. His #1 priority is winning the election; he already knows that he won’t win any new conservative voters so he is now trying to win over as many liberal votes and votes from gay couples as he can
Ron Paul is the choice.
I believe that Romney is more capable than Obama for the position of president, however, I would not vote for him (or Obama) because he does not align closely enough with my values for me to be able to say that he is anything but a lesser of two evils. I would be compromising myself by voting for anyone except Ron Paul.
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.
The differences between the politicians are not as extreme as they would like to make them out to be. The red tape they have to work through to get anything done in a country completely polarized is insane.
I will be voting for the candidate who supports funding the things in the USA that I find to be extremely important, such as education, and money for funding the arts. I will also be voting for the candidate who (at least on paper) supports the rights of gays and lesbians.
The government is not a peachy and uncorrupt thing. But the issues and the differences between the candidates on those issues are important to me. There is such a thing as the lesser of two evils. For instance, an anti art, anti freedom of choice (just 2 examples) future president would be a detriment to society in my opinion. Details make a difference.
@heavydreamz, that’s never ever going to happen in America..ever lol it’d be anarchy. And not that any of our votes really matter because of the E.C anyway, but I’d choose Obama just for the fact that I think if he gets a second term he will legalize/decriminalize marijuana by 2016!
No edit button? Almost deleted my post..
Pick the monkey on the left or the monkey on the right. Either way, same shit is going to go down.. unless we drop this current system and pick up a sustainable one that is within reach, no, it is here, it is now; all we have to do is BE the change want to see.
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
