Where does everyone stand as far as their vote for the election? I was not planning on voting, but the race is heating up, I'm still undecided. What about you?

There's no real point in voting, seeing as how both parties are slaves to similar corporate interests, contrary to what Hollywood wants to tell you

i'm undecided right now. i don't really follow politics so i don't know what they are going to do.

#12 Posted by Animasta (14672 posts) -

well, considering one's kind of a bad president and the other's Romney...

pick the bad president woo

#13 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

Obama is a failure and Romney is the gay-bashing Christian conservative right?

Neither.

Oh yes. The last four years have been spectacular. More of this, please.

Pretty much a double-edged sword buuuuuuuut between the two it would have to be Obama again. I don't want anything to do with Romney.

#19 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6296 posts) -

If there wasn't a medical marijuana question on the ballot this year I wouldn't vote at all. Seeing as how I am, though, I'm voting Obama by default. It's a drop in the bucket being from the incredibly-liberal Massachusetts, but "lesser of two evils" I guess.

#20 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

Do I think Obama has been a great president? No.

Do I think we should put a hyper-conservative, gay hating president in the white house to replace him? No.

I really wish I could take into consideration things like economic policy, foreign policy, or any number of other issues fundamental to America's infrastructure. But, when it always comes down to social issues for me. Do you dislike gay people think they should be treated differently? Do you think women should stay in the kitchen? Do you think you should get to decide other people's reproductive rights? Well, sorry, but even if your other ideas are interesting, I just can't follow you. American politics are a stagnant cesspool because we can't get past basic notions of equality. Maybe if we could we could actually take a stab at the economy or other important issues.

Same. Sarcastic "Yay electoral college!" Although since I prefer Obama anyways I don't mind so much.

#23 Posted by Hunter5024 (5612 posts) -

I always vote because that increases the likelihood of jury duty (Because they know they can pinpoint your address), but I'm still not sure. They both suck... I kind of liked Ron Paul, because even though I disagreed with a lot of the things he wanted to cut, he at least he seemed like less of a dirt bag than the other two. He didn't seem as corrupt.

#24 Posted by phuzzybunny (172 posts) -

I'd vote for a pile of waste over Obama! Too bad it's not on the ballot.

I really don't care too much for either candidate though I slightly prefer Obama. I may not vote for either. The lesser of two evils is still evil.

Okay, I can understand not agreeing with Romney, but let's drop the hyperbole and be serious for a moment. Mitt Romney was a Governor from Massachusetts for christ sake. Not exactly a state known for producing hard right, rock ribbed conservatives. In fact a state so left of center it gave Ted Kennedy the license to kill women, but back to Romney. I've never seen any rabid wing nuts sign state health care systems into law. And if having the stated position of believing that marriage is between a man and a woman constitutes being a hate monger, that would make President Obama a hate monger, up until about 3 months ago, but oddly enough, that wasn't a problem for the President.

There isn't much reason to think he hates homosexuals; he's just unprincipled. Right now, all Romney is doing is capitalizing on the reactionary last stand of the Christian right of recent years. He's been a strong supporter of gay rights in the past, likely for the same reason: votes.

At any rate, both Romney and Obama want more government interference and don't have any particular respect for personal liberties. The main difference between them is that Obama is (ostensibly) less corrupt and malleable.

Which is inherently silly, not just for the obvious reasons, but because Obama is as white as he is black.

Choose Barrack, but should have choosen not American but would vote Barrack. It is my opinion that Romney would allow free market to be to free and would collapse the entire world economy

I'll be writing in Ron Paul if he doesn't get the nomination at the convention. I don't give a shit if it's splitting a vote or whatever. Obama and Romney are both bad options.

Funny thing about that whole "not voting is a waste of your rights" thing: if someone doesn't vote, they are exercising their right to not take part in the general election. The rights go both ways, good sir.

You can write in candidates on a presidential ballot? That's awesome! I'm only 21 so this is my first presidential election. Now I don't have to vote for a douche bag, or a turd sandwich!

I'm suprised that nobody's mentioned Romney's magic underwear yet. 
 
Anyway, I hate choosing between the lesser of two evils, but I don't want Romney in the white-house, and Obama's actually made life better for me, so I'll definitely be voting for him.

To look at these two candidates and say the outcome would be the same is crazy talk. I feel like people who always say neither every 4 years are just making excuses for being lazy. How convenient that ends up being for them.

This I agree with this a lot, although Obama is an easy choice with Romney as his opponent. Romney is nothing but a Republican tool for the wealthy and the big money corporate agenda imo. That and he has failed to publically stand by any of his true convictions at all(could be giving him too much credit here)...... and he put his dog in a carrier on the top of his car on a vaca trip. :/ Boo.
