Although I am Canadian, if I could vote I would vote for Obama. Seems like a pretty cool dude. And what happens in the U.S.A normally takes an affect on us Northern folk.... wish we could vote for a president to sometimes... lol

Gary Johnson. He's the only candidate that really lines up with my views. And I honestly think he could do a better job than the options the lovely two party system has offered up.

Yeah, it's pretty terrible.
The video freaked me out even more then I already was. I am not a fan lol...
You know though, I like Romney because every day he keeps reminding me how lucky we are to have Obama instead lol. I only hope it stays that way. :]



We will have to see. I just can't wait until this election is over though D: I have never been into politics this much in my life. It's stressful keeping up XD

I WISH TO! I don't think America would be in the current mess it is in. I would love to have universal healthcare, free college and awesome government aid ect(I would not even mind the extra taxes! :D)... I really prefer the way Canada and also France are ran over this country.



I mean, I feel blessed to not be in a third world country but... the two party system and stuff is irritating the poo out of me...plus the electoral college is so frustrating. So many more people would vote if it wasn't for that. I guess when it comes down to it...we citizens over here don't have much more of a say in who our president is then you honestly. Electoral college!? no thanks. I am done with it lol.

I f**king hate the electoral college shit. Just do popular vote. We already tally the popular vote... use that to elect the President. It gives voters an actual say in who the President will be. When I lived in Kentucky, it didn't matter who I voted for... our electoral college points went to the Republican nominee. So it was pointless.

:[ I know, it's really bothering me. My fiance refused to vote until this election because of it. It SUCKS! I guess Al Gore is trying to abolish it though so hopefully he does! I don't even know why the electoral college even started in the first place D:

If anyone is curious about this. It's Al Gore being against the electoral college:

I think it would be cool to have happen. The popular vote should be what dictates in my opinion :]

Well, let's see....
Hmmmm....
In nearly 4 years :
- average middle income has fallen ~$4,0000
- fewer people are working than ever
- our President hasn't submitted a budget that has gotten even 1 vote from his own party
- we are spending ~$1 trillion more per year than we take in
- there are more people in poverty than we have had in decades
- our national debt hit $16 trillion
- we are borrowing ~60% of every dollar we spend
- a major entitlement was passed that does not reflect the consent of the people
- our president missed more than 40% of his daily defense briefings
- our president ignored his own debt commission
- our president hasn't met with his own Jobs Council in 7 months
- the stock market is up 60%
- unemployment among women and minorities and people under 24 higher than it has been in decades
- gas prices have gone from $1.83/g to $3.80/g
- the middle -east is erupting against the US due to the Obama Doctrine



Given e above this, our current president does not deserve to his position for another 4 years. His policies have made a bad situation worse.
I am fearful for what the next 4 years would look like if he is given any more time.



I'm choosing Romney. I can overlook his lack of "coolness" as he knows the key to improving our dire situation is to boost the middle class via jobs and tax cuts for the middle class. He has an excellent track record and is a solid leader.

The Electoral College gives a voice to less powerful/smaller states. Without it, California, New York, Illinois, Florida, Texas....all of those big, densely populated states would cancel out the votes of states like Montana and Idaho.



JJ has, throughout his presidency, poured fuel on the fire.



He's made things tons worse....which is exactly why he isn't running on his record.

I will be voting for Obama. He is the lesser of 2 evils. Every time Romney speaks, he reminds me more and more of Bush. It irritates me how stupid he is and wants to run the country.

What is irritating about how he wants to run the country?

I'm voting for Romney. His knowledge of how to run a business will certainly help our economy. Having a cool personality will not.

Gary Johnson. He's the only one that line up with most of my views.
