I'm far too apathetic to be upset. People are idiots, and they will never use the vote to elect someone who will actually represent their interests. I don't think Obama and Romney are exactly the same, not at all. I just think they work for the same people. Their policies mirror each other on foreign trade policy, domestic economics, the military industrial pharmaceutical complex, etc. This was the most expensive campaign in history, and who do you think the top contributors to both campaigns were? Goldman Sachs. This campaign cost 2.8 billion dollars. Who do you think financed that shit? The citizens united supreme court decision means we'll never know unless they tell us. That money had to come from somewhere.

 

Until campaigns are payed for equally for all candidates, our presidents are going to represent the interests of the banks. The 4.5 trillion Obama gave to them either for free or in bailouts should be evidence enough.

Just like I thought, your misguided Umaddery is with with Goldman Sachs. Which is fine, but you come off on some cry baby rebel in search of the next fauhawk to strut around in trying to be heard complaining. That might work around other children but around adults it's transparent.

 

Especially your corny Neg remarks. :lol: :lol: :lol:

We could have actually had a businessman as a president, for some reason people view that as a bad thing. Rather, we voted for a black career academic/politician. How many think Obama would have won if he were white? This country teaches liberalism in elementary school and reinforces it through every possible media outlet day in and day out. People don't even know how to think for themselves anymore.

 

 

I'm all for dissenting opinions but that race card is tired as fuck, as is your faggotry surrounding the "liberal conspiracy"...I've been biting my tongue for weeks (and especially since Tuesday) on this and I will go DAO on you.

 

I voted Gary Johnson. Fuck the two party system.

 

Nuanced political insight and inspiring rebelliousness!

 

As per usual.

i agree with the sentiment that it wouldnt be bad having a businessman as a leader. it made me happy that romney had seen a balance sheet before ... not that obama necessarily has no idea about how to manage money, but romney has proven experience doing that.

Whenever people say this, the teensy matter of independent fact checking and financial groups completely discrediting his economic plan comes to mind.

 

Paul Ryan saying that "It's too complex to explain" crops up too. Closing loopholes and snipping taxes will give us trillions in 4 short years, huh?

 

I know I'm wading into a quagmire by entering a political argument (especially outside of Crossfire) and someone will probably call me a misguided fagg0t who isn't "in the political know" like they are, but...

 

Uhp, looks like my liberal is showing.

Paul Ryan is a moron, all bets are off on him ...

 

... and romneys economic plan would not have worked, it hasn't worked before and economic theory/history will back us both up on it. that's clear/obvious/agreed upon.

 

i think the only way to explain his economic plan (while still holding to the idea of him being decent with finances) is to look at who he's running for and who's sponsoring him, big banks and the wealthy would benefit from tax breaks and releasing the capital gains tax and other trickle-down policies.

 

he probably knows that trickle down won't work well. but a lot of people were giving him a lot of money to say otherwise and enact policy that would pay off for them if he won.
