Well the elections are only a couple weeks away. Who are you going to vote for (If you are American) and why are you voting for them? If you are not American who would you like to see win and why?


I wish I could vote for Obama but I just can't do it. I am voting for Romney simply because Obama is sooooo clueless about the economy. Dude seriously doesn't get it. The solution to all of our economic problems cant be fixed by just continually borrowing from China.

This is probably one of the worst ideas for a threads I've seen in a while. Politics tend to lead towards very heated debates, and the fact that you're voting for Romney on the economic front is crazy in my mind considering his 'plans' don't add up in the least. If he could give us actual math to back up his claims maybe I'd be with you on it. I can only see us much worse off with Romney in charge.

Personally I am voting for Cthulu because why would you choose a lesser evil?! Just kidding, I'm most likely going to vote for Obama for various reasons including the fact that Romney isn't really a trust worthy person at all and I know most politicians lie but Romney makes it way too apparent and throughout all of his ad campaigns, I have yet to see one fully viable fact.

I would make a great president. You should all vote for me.

Good grief!! We get to see political threads on a website for anime?! Any of us that wish to say who we're voting for are going to slammed with hate posts, so why bother bringing it up??

On another note, I'm going to be voting for Romney simply because I can no longer stand the President we have now. I did NOT vote for him in '08 but i knew plenty of people that did simply because he is black. I don't agree with ANYthing this president has done with this country, with his foreign policies, especially, or his economic issues. No President should be going around to the Middle East countries and doing an APOLOGY TOUR and siding with those bastards that want all of us dead AND Israel. Romney is NOT going to be bowing to any "kings" in the Middle East, let alone not NOT saying that Israel is our biggest ally. Romney has an actual plan for making jobs along with cutting and balancing the 16 TRILLION budget we have. "Obummer" has not told us anything of what he plans to do the next four years if he gets back in, God help us if he does. He has spent more in 3 1/2 yrs than Bush did in 8 yrs.

I KNOW I'm going to get hateful posts for this and maybe some that agree with me, but either way, it's not going to change my mind.

heh, maybe, but I'm confident in CR members ability to have a respectful discussion about the election. Kinda sad you don't, but to each his own i guess.

I didn't start this thread to down on anyone for their choice. I was just curious about peoples opinions on the matter. thats all.

I actually voted for Obama in 08 but he just isnt delivering what he said he would.

I agree, at the least put this topic a poll or in extended discussion. This is just asking for ass hats for either candidate to get on their political soap box and spit out whatever nonsense they've heard from everyone else. Truth be told whoever does win, four years from now roughly fifty percent of the population is going to be bitching and griping about how horrible everything has been since "so and so" took office because that's just the way things are. If you have a country who prides itself on the power of the individual, you can't expect the majority of voters to recognize the fact that government ISN'T a one man operation.

I know I said this was a crazy idea for a thread and that statement right there proves it...

I also hate the opinionated side of me because it makes me want to correct people like you.

Can you share with me Romneys plan for the economy? I can. He wants to cut taxes (thus cutting government income), He wants to increase military spending(Thus increasing spending). As long as you've passed basic math you can see that this will create a LARGER debt, not fix the debt. His solution to the change in income/spending? Close tax loopholes. He hasn't specified which ones, in fact he's specified a bunch he won't close. It's been mathematically proven that he can't make up for the difference in income/spending with closing tax loopholes alone. So what is he really planning? Can you tell me that?

Romney has no plan for the economy, at least not an intelligent one. He's making false promises and in 4 years you'll be saying the same thing about him as you're saying about Obama right now.

Part of the "increased spending" comes from stopping the cuts obama is currently doing. And a couple independent studies show that the math isn't that fuzzy. Meanwhile some of our greatest presidents have actually done exactly what Romney wants to do (encourage small business)

Obama promised he'd cut the deficit in half, Instead he doubled it.

During Obama's presidency we've lost or distanced ourself from our allies. And when the Iranian people were trying to rise up Obama said nothing. Compare this to long time ally Egypt (Who is no longer considered an ally, but not an enemy either) We supported him one day, then literally the next day the white house called for him to step down.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/the-last-worship-synagogue-in-egypt-is-closed-at-least-temporarily/ Last synagogue in egypt closes?

Death squads roam the streets pulling coptic christians out of their homes and shooting them. Women's rights once again under fire there.

We are currently worth less then our GDP. That means some banana republics have a better GDP then us.

Obama says no red line for Iran, how do economic sanctions hurt a government that is willing to take more and more from its people to continue its nuclear program?

Our "Russia reset" has been a bust, we bent over backwards downsizing our nuclear arsenal more then Russia said we had to. And in return Russia blocks us on every conflict they can. Not to mention without Britain's consent we revealed things about their tiny arsenal (Wiki leaks is how we found out Obama did that)


The list goes on

I admit that Obama hasn't been the best president we've ever had, but I think it's really ignorant to say that he's the worst. Although economic growth has been slow, and the debt has gone up, it's not ALL his fault. I look at the good that he's done as president despite several missteps over the last four years and I still feel he deserves my support, regardless of his flaws. In regards to Romney, well just think about it; when's the last time you've heard of an honest politician who's also an ethical businessman? Granted, many politicians in Washington are rotten to core, especially in the "do-nothing" Congress. I don't care what Romney did in the past, I only care about what he's said and done over the course of this election that makes even George W. Bush seem appealing in comparison. Considering how much I HATED Bush, for me that's really telling.
