Just want to see who people would vote for if the presidential election where today.
People need to pay more attention in their high school economy and government classes.
Obama is not for the people. He is for winning and for all of the corporations that are throwing money in their face.
Free health care for everyone sounds fantastic, but realize that free healthcare isn’t free and someone has to pay for it.Those people are the ones who work their asses off for a living. People say it’s not fair to have access to health care but how is it any more fair for hard working people to be forced to pay for the ones that can’t? I live in a poor town and I can say that most people that are on healthcare/ receive food stamps and other goodies from the government are just lazy people who smoke a lot of pot, sit on their lazy bums and eat junk food. Yes, there are people out there who really do need healthcare, but isn’t that why people donate to charities all the time? Also, maybe we should start focusing on a healthy. active, lifestyle so we can avoid paying visits to the doctors.
To the people that are voting for Obama solely because he’s “for gays”: C’mon, let’s be serious. He was pretty much forced to state his opinion on gays and it all boils down to how many more votes he can get. He doesn’t care that you care about him caring about gay rights, he only cares about your vote. And he doesn’t even have any power over the issue! Come on people! A president doesn’t have any power regarding his social views! Those are left up to the state, if you truly care about social views then pay attention to who is representing your state. Also, this issue isn’t as big as most people think. Its only a matter of time before more states legalize gay marriage. Its not socially acceptable to be against gays anymore.
Same goes for abortion, state issue. Also, instead of investing so much time in this issue lets focus more on prevention.
Politics nowadays is run by big business. We are no longer United States of America we are the Ignorant States of Big Business. Both Obama and Romney are for the same thing in the end. Money and control. So brush up on your American History and your knowledge of economy and government and all of the bull shit will smack you right in the face. America is no more, the constitution is just a piece of paper. Ron Paul and Gary Johnson are the only true Americans running.
“That’s never ever going to happen in America..ever lol” –@taurean10
Simply false. You cannot say what will or will not happen. What’s more, there are thousands of signs that the times have changed. Not that they are changing, although it’s true, but that they HAVE CHANGED.
If your pessimistic presumption becomes true, it’s because people like you expect it ahead of time and don’t act otherwise. One of the least examples of which: People who say to the effect “I’m voting for the lesser evil because the good guys don’t stand a chance in the race” only confirm it as well as the asinine and nonequivalent predilection our plutocracy’s founder held, which denied that the everyman ought have a say in the running of his own world.
@nightowl, I understand what you’re saying about predicting the future because you’re right, I don’t know. But really?! If you truly believe that in the near future (present-2500 lol) that America, or any big nation for that matter, will decided to go without some type of government then I would LOVE to hear your logic. I just really don’t see anyway that it could happen. In my perfect world the U.S would have no gov’t and the nation would run on peace&love&trust but there’s always gonna be that one person that has to fuck it up for everybody lol
“…but there’s always gonna be that one person that has to fuck it up for everybody lol”
Is there? Another prediction you can’t make.
Dramatic example, but if you woke up to find yourself in a world of Buddhas, would you be that one dude? It wouldn’t be easy, even if you tried.
For those who think human nature isn’t improving: I’ll remind you that had you and your friends lived just a cosmic moment ago, you would have killed each other upon meeting in the woods.
For those who think human nature isn’t improving exponentially quickly: LOOK AND SEE
There is a huge love revolution afoot and it is spreading worldwide faster than could a virus thanks to the new elements of these times that have never been here before – unparalleled connectivity. Love has gained gargantuan momentum & increases exponentially as it becomes the context of more and more people’s lives, and only the wiping-out of the populace could stop it, which is a fear that only the blind or deluded cling to.
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 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”
