Because he's black and hates rich white people and liberty, both of which are uncool. It's so much more cool to take your neighbor's stuff, and back it up with paramilitary force. Like in Africa. Yeah, we need more African-style society here. Because it's cool.
Americans don't actually choose, the media does it for them. The result is decided long before anybody ever places a ballot. It's the media's job to implement that choice into solid votes by subjecting Americans to advertisements and coverage of only the top two leading political gangs.
The media teaches the American people phrases like "lesser of two evils" and such. It's hilariously effective.
Romney has the creepiest face ever. D: I wouldn't vote for him even if I was Republican myself, which I'm not, thank god. It doesn't really matter, though, but since I'm the silly dumb optimist, I'm more than willing to give Obama a second chance. Seeing as the previous Republican president was SUUUCH a genius, I doubt anybody that had a working brain would consider Republican again. People might whine about how Obama did "nothing" these past 4 years, but seriously, look at the bloody mess he has to deal with that the "wonderful" Bush left him. Nobody is going to fix that in 4 years, not Obama OR McCain if he had been elected. I doubt any big changes will happen in the next 4 years, but I will foolishly hope for something good to happen anyway. I'd rather keep America in the 21st century, instead of returning to the 1950s like Romney wanted.
The American people are stupid and brainwashed in believing in this rigged system. America has a population of 314 million but Obama only received 60 million votes. The people who didn't vote are the smart ones because Romney would not be any better than Obama just like Bush was terrible. America has not had a real president since JFK. There was a time when Patriotism used to mean Freedom and raising a family. Under Bush/Obama regime Patriotism become about spying on your neighbors and people looking the other way while a NAZI police state arrested and killed people without due process. We have seen nothing but endless illegal war for the last 11 years and Obama is still pushing for WW3. It is time to say enough.
It is time to call a spade a spade. American government is a tyrannical state controlled by a rich elite of NAZI war mongers. The best case scenario is if the country goes over the fiscal cliff and then breaks up like the former USSR did. At the very least that would end the wars and restore some of the power back to the people. I am not an anarchist when I say this but value a just and free state that follows its' own constitution and laws.
The history of human civilization is like an hourglass. The sand at the top represents power to the people while over time the sand slowly falls to bottom of the glass which represents tyranny. When all the sand is at the bottom it is time to flip the hourglass over and begin the process anew. The meek shall inherit the Earth this is ancient wisdom.
Although Reagan was popular in his day a lot of the problems we have today are a result of his policies. He loaded the country up on debt and spent too much on the military. Trickle down theory otherwise known as Reaganomics never worked. All it did was make the rich richer while the middle class stagnated. The 1980s were semi prosperous because of another housing bubble but that collapsed in 1987 when there was a stock market crash over the Savings and Loan scandals. Reagan papered over the Savings and Loan without actually fixing the root problem which is debt.
Iran-Contra was also an act of treason. He sold military hardware to Iran to pay for insurgents in Nicaragua. Reagan was also a bully when it came to Unions by drafting striking air-traffic controllers into the military. Both cases were inappropriate uses of presidential power.
Well, he did succeeded in foreign affairs thanks to those military spending. He destroyed the USSR and the United States became the only world's superpower. That's a huge achievement in my opinion. When it comes to making the rich richer, I have some nice video about it. It's actually Margaret Thatcher and British parliament but she was a strong ally of Reagan and had very similar politics: [link]
No. Stein didn't bomb several countries with drones, extend the Patriot Act, sign the 2012 NDAA, sent 2500 troops to Australia or approve a leg of the harmful Keystone XL pipeline. In the case of the latter, she was helping protesters.
Furthermore, how are elections and leaders in your own country?
