    Default Election 2012

    Who are y'all lookin at to support? I think Matt Snyder looks like a good candidate. I'll post more about him later if you don't know who he is, or Nyrisis will, she's really big on him now.

    It hilarious how you guys were pissed about how your state was running things, yet still consider a republican for president. Please, Obama should be the only candidate you care about.

    Obama has failed to live up to my expectations. I hated Barbour because he was a fat cat white collar douche who marginalized education. Have you read ANYTHING at all abotu Snyder except the fact that he's considered a Republican?

    reading more hes not as bad as he looks at first. he surprisingly has decent sentiments economically but his ideas are dumb and would do the opposite of what he claims he wants them to do.

    this is the problem with when 'regular people' decide to run for office, they dont actually know anything and none of their positions make any sense

    A few moderate republicans actually peak my interest from time to time, for example that fat New Jersey senator that should have run. Unfortunately or perhaps fortunately for democrats, they fail to stand out in the literal garbage that makes up most of the republican canidates.

    Obama also started a more comprehensive medicare program, halted the recession (despite what republicans want you to believe, it started in Bush's term), ended the war in Iraq and even has a plan out of Afghanistan in motion. That is a heck of a lot more the what most presidents do in office.

    Yeah a 50% cut in the corporate tax would definately benefit the rich but wouldn't also stimulate job growth and help combat outsourcing to other countries? All the industry where I live has packed up and moved their factories to mexico? With stronger powers to unions I could see that really helping.

    Many corporations move a lot of their production to other countries specifically to avoid high Corporate tax. With the tax in the U.S. lowered down to half of what it would normally be, there isn't as much reason to outsource. In fact, if it's just as cheap to have your factory somewhere you can drive in an hour, I'd say that's usually better than having it halfway around the world, especially if there's some sort of problem.

    corporations dont outsource to avoid taxes, they outsource to pay lower wages

    most corporations who outsource production remain headquartered in the us and pay us taxes no matter what

    It's cheaper to outsource if you are able to get away with paying lower wages.

    I figure Ron Paul needs a pity vote.

    I think Ron Paul, even if you disagree with his views, admirably has principles and beliefs that he doesn't deviate from

    Yeah but that's what's wrong with the U.S. political system. If Hitler was running in a U.S. election then I'd support him just because all of the other candidates would be people without any views other than those that various interest groups pressure them into having, and then other than that it's completely dominated by money. It's a sorry sight for anyone that isn't an American to observe and you should be ASHAMED

    Our political system a) doesn't have any form of codified constitution, b) is based on feudal, outdated, hegemonic political and legal conventions, c) has a monarchy and barely any separation of powers. Cameron during the riots pulled a few strings and suddenly people posting Facebook comments about riots in a jestful satirical way were being handed out twenty year prison sentences. Yet, despite all that, somehow it's better than yours.
