Ummmm... no matter how you slice it, The Teabagger congress has done absolutely nothing but block everything Obama has tried to do.
get your facts straight jack... all you are doing is spouting right wing propaganda.
Just noting that Obama had both houses of congress for half his term and did little with it. The healthcare got passed which is an unrealistic and ill concived solution to a viable problem. His attempts to stimulate the economy was quite a laughable idea and can already be seen as a failure. Yes the economy was already in big trouble when he took office but his policies have had no real success. Outside of that many of his promises have been falsities. His first day in office he promised to close guantanamo bay, that has failed to take place. He resigned the patriot act which violates constitutional rights. He sent more troops overseas, to fight unjust conflicts which are further bankrupting use. yes we were already there fighting but he chose to surge in afghanistan, and the acts to remove all combat troops from Iraq was signed by Bush it just took effect during Obama's term. He has had a tough time to be the president but his performance has been less than adequate, that opinion ive heard from many both conservative and liberal.
That being said im not exactly shitting sunshine about romney. His record in Ma was more moderate than anything else and he definetly is willing to spew some bs to get a vote, but so is Obama as time has shown. the element of social conservativism in the republican party which is often based on biase and ill informed logic is unfortunate, but those are minor issues compared to fiscal matters and policy which right now greatly impact the future of our nation. I dont know if he will be more fiscally responsible than Obama or not, but Obama has proven in office that he has no problem piling on to the debt. The writing is on every wall in the room and he is staring at the floor, my generation and younger will be paying heavily our whole lives for decisions already made over the last 12 years and those which will come to pass. I think they are both lousy fork tongued politicians but one has had a opportunity and failed, maybe it would be better to try someone else.
If you are a truly open minded individual I would recommend you start looking into third party candidates and find someone who you can actually believe in and support them. No vote is wasted, the more third party votes that come in the more viable an option it will be held as in the future by the general public. I think it is more than apparent that the two party system is broken, this thread has plenty of evidence that points to this fact. the candidates both democratic and rebuplican are part of politcal machines fueled by corporate money. It would seem that if all options are considered inaquedate & corrupt that the system is in need of alteration and theres only one direction to go and it still be an election, so more candidates and a general greater openmindedness to divsere forms of policy and thought is needed. the polarity currently in politics is unobjective and we already flirt with peril to much to continue this petty power struggle.
Anyways, thats my piece, im only 21 so what do I know ? I barely wear big boy shoes. I would just say everyone should keep an open mind and educate yourself through other means than the mainstream media.
