@Arkasai: Thought a poll would better service this.
Also Ron Paul supporters will you be voting at all. With the RNC pretty much throwing out all the supporters of Ron Paul from their convention while chanting "USA, USA" is probably the lowest low even for the RNC.
@Red: That sucks. America needs the MMP system. So you could vote for 10 different choices instead of 2. This way each party would have a percentage of the vote and then its up to them to band together to get the majority, this way you get alot more voices heard.
@EpicSteve: It is kind of difficult. They're both playing the typical political game. I was disappointed Obama's AMA was a typical PR stunt, and the man seems afraid to commit to anything.
Also, the Romney campaign isn't really interested in giving you a clear picture anyways as you can read in this incredibly depressing article: "We're Not Going to Let Our Campaign Be Dictated By Fact-Checkers"
An outside perspective: to the rest of the world, the Republican party seems like a bunch of kooky old men. I cannot fathom why any rational person would vote those crazy fundamentalists into a position of power. I'd rather unfulfilled but good-willed promises than completely backwards social policies. Obama is far from perfect, but I think it's probably important to choose the one who's going to be less detrimental for America as a whole.
I think getting real information on either is too difficult. Romney kinda seems like a smug asshole and Obama has fucked up a lot of military related things that affect me. So, i just kinda stopped caring.
By that do you mean because of troop withdrawals?
Obama because I don't take offense to gay people being gay, women being women, or minorities being a color other than white. And I laugh out loud when the uninformed say America is a Christian nation when this quote exists:
"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion..." John Adams, Treaty of Tripoli.
I don't want religious laws that deny some people basic rights to exist in my beloved, SECULAR, nation.
