    Saw it as I was turning off the tv, thought it was a repeat from an old one. Cant be arsed to go back downstairs :dunno:. Mccain looks like a Thunderbird puppet when hes sitting at a desk :laugh:.

    poor bastard. well, did he bury Obama? I'll bet :biggrin:

    hey, you Brits know politicians as well as us 'Murikans do. I never said Obama
    was der Saviour or anything, and neither did he really. but, what could be
    so bad about a different bunch of secret handshake society buggars than
    the same ole ones for another 4, possibly 8 years? on that note, even
    McCain/Palin would be refreshing if only for entertainment value after
    Bush/Cheney. I still hope the repubs don't win. they still could. egad.
    I confess I don't get the "Thunderbird Puppet" reference. sounds good :)

    Ugh. I don't like Obama, I REALLY don't like McCain. Yet another decision between a giant douche and a turd sandwich (to quote South Park).

    Bottom line, right now I'm leaning toward Obama. The country is in crisis, other countries think we suck. Obama will most likely do absolutely nothing, but he will help our image re: the international community.

    Normally, I would vote for the person who was a pro-life Constitutionalist, but I don't have that luxury right now. Unfortunately, I think Obama might do a better job of not totally fucking up the country right now.

    Awesome.

    Apathy FTW.

    Americans seems to take a very simplistic approach, almost like the movies. Instead of having multiple parties with different candidates it HAS to be 1 or the other. Because Obama is one of the only 2 candidates, he is automatically assumed as the "hero," but if there were multiple candidates he would most likley be on the bottom of the poll along with mccain. Americans should be able to vote for more than 2 people imo.

    Could always vote for Nader or Bob Barr if you really want to. It's not like it would help much since the two main parties dominate the field.

    whatever. it is what it is. I was born here. if there was anyplace else to go,
    I'd have gone. what country on this festering planet would be a better
    place to live the USA? it's like the election. the least shitty :biggrin:
    only difference is there are a lot more countries on the ballot than there
    are scumbag pollytishuns. fuck em all :dry:

    I get what anonymous is saying. we HAVE multiple parties, but what's the
    point of them exsisting? as you said, the main 2 swine parties always
    dominate the playing field. has there ever been a president in our lifetimes
    that wasn't either a dumbasscrat or a repugnantkin? I don't think so.
    just the way it is. it are what it are.

    anyway, it's not like the brits have a dozen candidates or anything. what?
    three instead of two? none of it matters anyway :wink:

    There's a Green Party here too, UKIP might still be around, the racist BNP and the Monster Raving Loony Party.
    As far as who will win though, it's Conservative or Labour. Our third party, The Liberal Democrats, never gets many votes because no one thinks they'll win.:huh:

    Theres also the socialist party, and a few other less known ones. But the main difference between americans and british politics is that in British pariliament the Prime minister has no real power, all parties who have seats in parliament are heard so its usually irrelevant what party the prime minister is affiliated to. And also more importantly, if the british public dont want their current leader in power, they can decide if they want him to step down, which is what will soon happen to gordon brown. Americas elections are more like an ultimatum than a democratic decision.

    I see what ya mean. just aint a damn thing I can do about it. I have
    never been in Britain, so I have not watched the political process first
    hand. the problem in America is the idiots outnumber the people with
    the sense God gave a Billygoat. so, no mattter who the president is,
    it's important for the Congress to actually DO something other than vote
    pay raises for themselves. and people cling to their elected state
    representatives and senators for reasons that thus far elude me utterly.
    we need to hose all the buggars out and start anew. People keep voting
    for John McCain, and Ted kennedy, and all the rest of the scumbag
    congress. it's amazing.

    The only realy thing you can do if you live in America is to be rich. If your a rich person then america is the best country on the planet, it is epitome of capitalism. If you are working class theres not much point in living in america these days unless you still believe in the "american dream" :rolleyes:. Britain is by no means the best place either, Canada or Scandinavia have by far the best rates of education, welfare, health and well most things really. Thats why ive always dreamed of living in canada.

    well, we all do the best we can. being rich is always good. I aint quite
    rich, but I'm alright. for now........we'll see what we see when we see it.

    Scandanavia has its appeal, no doubt. you said you wanna live in Canada.
    it's close to me. a hop skip and a jump :biggrin: kinda cold, after bein
    born in the Arizona desert. eh...I could buy a coat I guess. don't need
    one here. it were a hunnert degrees Farenheight today in Phoenix.
    these next couple of weeks is why we all stay here. the rest of the time?
    mass insanity would be my best guess.

    anyway, I just mailed my early mail in ballot. hopefully, whoever wins
    will do something semi intelligent. as I said, we shall see.
     

  20. I totally agree with you in regards to your post. America is a rich person's playground, basically.
