I personally wanted Romney to pull through, and I didn't like on how Obama was handling things. Granted, The President had some good ideas, but the bad overshadowed the good (I.e 6 trillion spneding in first year, him "ending" the war in Iraq was a date set before he took the Oval office, and last time I checked, Obama didn't go take out Osama Bin Laden, SEAL Team 6 did.)

I live in Australia, but I was hoping Obama would win it.

Romney seems like a nutcase from what I've heard >_>
"Women can't fall pregnant due to rape as the body has ways of shutting it down" - What the seriously fuck ?
Also the whole contraceptives/abortion issue he's had. They should be available choices for individuals.
Not all people use contraceptives for "that" reason, it's also used for other medical things hell even acne.
I have endometriosis, without the pill I'd be fucked.

Basically first one-two days of a period, you have excess "tissue" build up outside of the actual uterus, may eventually lead to infertility.
Also, it makes you feel as though your spine will snap in half, you end up in bed with a hot-cold fever, the slightest though, sight or scent of food will make you throw up, it's fucking awful :[
Gets worse every time too due to remenant tissue staying around. Basically, staying on the pill means this doesn't happen as it keeps the hormonal imbalance that causes it in cheque.

For President, I voted for Mitt Romney.

We have had Obama in office for four years, and I hear democrats and liberals saying, 'oh, four years isn't enough for him to fix America'. Not only has he not helped America, but numbers, unemployment numbers (actual numbers are closer to 14-15 % unemployed Americans), (more people on food stamps), ($6 trillion to the debt), are worse off than when Obama took office. I have grown up in a middle class family, and these past four years, have not been good for us. I am sick and tired of his policies, sick and tired of his condescension and sneering, sick of democrats who attack you when you're debating them about Obama, rather then answering the real argument. I'm sick of the way Obama treats women and his arrogant attitude. I'm furious at Obama and Hilary Clinton for the lies and deception concerning Benghazi. I am sick of hearing Obama's campaign. His plan seems to be attacking Romney instead of talking about a real plan for the future. I am sick of the mainstream Press covering up and withholding information from the public to help Obama. I am sick of Obama, because every year when I drive past the unemployment lines, and the Food bank lines, they have grown longer and longer. I am sick of these high gas prices, as Obama tries to intervene in America's production of oil on Federal lands. I am disgusted how Obama is trying to destroy the coal industry. Obama never did, and never will have my support or vote. And I am so sick of democrats that I've talked to in person, and to whom I voice my dislike of Obama, calling me a racist bigot. Race has nothing to do with this.

Mitt Romney was Obama's running mate and now VP.

You should be thankful since both of them share the same overall policies with slight differences.

A lot of people bitch that Obama hasn't changed the country in four years. Which is crazy.

Meant to include the obvious fact that I can't actually vote, Canadian. It pisses me off. The States are kings of the world right now, and especially as their next door neighbor, this election impacts me so much and yet I have absolutely no control of it's outcome. Ah well.

Obama, because as much as I hate America's two-party system it's obviously not ready for actually making the other parties matter, and I'd do anything it takes to secure a future free of Romney's rule. This is largely based on the fact that four years is barely enough time for anyone to be a leader, Romney's disgusting statements about women, and my gay rights and abortion beliefs.

I would very much like to tell you, but I'm not comfortable doing so, at least in this venue. :(

It's not you, don't worry- it's the general culture of dA that puts me off of explaining myself and my beliefs in public, because they are formed off of specific religious beliefs (which are Really Not Okay in a lot of circles of the Internet), and they are considered by many to be asinine and backwards.

In addition, I am also not currently in a fit emotional state to deal with the messages I will almost surely get if I explain my political stances. :)

I am sorry that I can't be more helpful, but I just can't handle getting into lengthy political arguments on the internet at this time. :)

I prefer Romney, but I won't undermine our president, unlike some Democrats, most notably the corrupt Harry Reid, corrupt is not really a strong enough word by itself to describe him. Additional ones might include immoral, unethical, dishonest, crooked, shady, fraudulent, debased, degraded, tainted, perverted, warped, contaminated, and rotten. One might also add uncooperative, intransigent, inflexible, obdurate, obstinate, obstructionist, extremist, and intractable. And these are his good points. When it comes to serving the interests of America and her citizens, rather than those of himself and those willing to bribe him, Reid hits the absolute bottom of the political septic tank.

Why bring up Harry Reid? Because he has pledged himself to Democrat obstruction in the Senate should Mitt Romney win the White House. There are many despicable Liberals just like him. Rather than work for the common good of all Americans, he pledges to obstruct.

And that's why I prefer Romney. The Democrats do not want to move forward as proven by the words and actions of their Majority Leader.

You can't possibly say that. That's literally exactly like calling Obama a flip-flopper because he changed his views on gay marriage for the better. You're ignoring the other side of the coin. Except this coin is both tails, no heads. To be fair, you would have to bring up the fact that Republicans have been doing the same thing and that Republicans have people just as bad, if not worse than Harry Reid. But you didn't. Bias strikes again.

Hmmm... I like how you bring up obstructionism.

As I'm aware, it's a lot easier in other countries to throw bums like that out
by way of having a vote of no confidence in carrying out their legistlative duty.

It goes both ways truly, and those who wrap themselves in either party's colours
should be made an example of, in my humble opinion.
We need people in congress on both sides of the isle,
who will carry out their job without the bullshit.

You get the abuse from the Liberals. After all, they consider themselves to be the most tolerant and understanding among us, don't they? They're better people, just ask them. For instance refer to the idiot who butted in to our conversation (above). I said nothing about Obama or flip-flopping, yet he will try to convince me that I did. Further more, if he's so concerned about Republicans being just as bad as Harry Reid, why doesn't he name them, instead of trying to invalidate my comments with such a stupid argument. It was Harry Reid who announced just the other day that he was going to obstruct Romney. How can someone argue with that? Before I'm asked to prove what Reid said. here are a few links:

I get so tired from either side tearing at eachothers throats.

But always... the liberal space cadets take the cake.
I'd laugh at them if they didn't present such a subversive threat to this country.

That troll butted in yesterday. I don't know what his issue is.
He claims to not take a side but he's a self-deluding "Obamabot" as any.

For President, I'm voting for Obama because I support his policies on healthcare as well as his Keynesian economic views. Plus, I think that gay people should have all of the rights of straight people, and that women should have a say over their own bodies.

For the Senate, I'm voting for Elizabeth Warren. She seems more liberal to Obama and in my opinion may be someone to look out for in 2016 or 2020. However, Scott Brown seems like a moderate and I won't be too heartbroken if he won.

For the House, I'm not sure who, since I've only been in Massachusetts for about two months (going to college in Boston and all). As terrible as it sounds (and it is terrible), I'll probably just vote for whoever has a [D] next to their name.
