Hi Bill,

Romney does seem to have a need to hide things that would be important to the public in evaluating him for the presidency. Fortunately it’s looking more and more like his chances of becoming president are fading the closer we get to the election. The guys a toad and hopefully the coming debates will show just what kind of toad he is.

Romney/Ryan = Losers!! :icon13:

unfortunately, that's not sure. It's a long way to go to the election and a lot of things can happen.

Its over for the GOP Gunther, the only way they can possibly win is to steal the election and they are giving it a hard try in doing just that. For example here in PA unless the PA court overturns it you are required to have a photo ID before you will be permitted to vote. This will disenfranchise up to 500,000 perhaps more PA citizens. These are mostly the elderly and city citizens that do not have a need for a driver’s license or other form of photo ID. You must get a photo ID from PENNDOT and reports so far indicate that only some 10,000 of the up to 500,000 voters have been able to get one of these required photo ID’s. This requirement has become a lightning rod for supporters of President Barack Obama when a top state Republican lawmaker said in June that the ID requirement is going to allow Mitt Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.

Pa. Supreme Court weighs voter ID arguments


I get sick to my stomach at the GOP’s continuing attempt to turn the word "entitlement" into a bad word. Entitlement means for most in this country "earned benefits", those of us who have worked hard our entire lives and have paid our share into the system. This sick minded son-of-a-bitch Mitt Romney insults every retired American, all those who are poor do to no fault of their own and every single child who goes to bed each night hungry. Mitt Romney, his side-kick Ryan and the GOP mindset can all drop dead!

I can't get over the fact that you USAians don't have compulsory voting. Last election only 57% voted. Why?

Over here you get a fine for not voting, but all you have to do is get your name crossed off the list.
Once they give you your ballot papers it's up to you to fill them out or 'donkey vote', just put them in the boxes.

Hi sinsi,

Depends on the state. Some states have mail in voter forms available, most do not so if you have no means to get to a voting location you’re shit out of luck. This can be a real problem for the elderly and none driving citizens. Add to that the need to have a photo ID and you're screwed!

I agree with the Aussie system, voting should be compulsory.

>Some states have mail in voter forms available
If you're out of your voting area on election day you can get a postal vote over here but you have to prove that you can't make it to a local polling booth e.g. out of state.

>I agree with the Aussie system, voting should be compulsory.
When I was younger it was a pain, now I'm older (and hopefully wiser) it makes sense. Proper democracy, one citizen one vote.
You can't complain about the government unless you voted. For or against doesn't matter, take the time to vote.

hard words, in fact. But don't forget: It is meaningless to fight against persons; we've to change the institutions for a system change.

Hm, a few Obama fans here...
I don't know if Mr. Romney is a good candidate, and I also don't bother what he's talking all the day long - I'm no American.

However, in a democracy it's very important that an incapable government isn't rewarded with reelection. In fact, that's virtually the only benefit of a democracy at all. So THE question should be - was Mr. Obama a capable president?

Looking at the economical and financial figures I'd say: No. The only strategy that they had and have, was: cheap money and more cheap money.

I'm not an Obama fan. There's just no freaking way I'm voting for the alternatives available...

Like I said before I don't think Romney/Ryan will be getting the senior vote. :biggrin:

Gunther,

The funny thing about the bible belt or red states is they are the biggest portion of Romney's 47% who he claims are moochers.  :biggrin:

You know even though I'm getting real close to turning 62 I still enjoy the animated cartoon "The Simpsons". At times it makes me laugh out loud!!

that information shows the question in a new light for me.

that's a bit tricky. We can watch "The Simpsons" in the German TV, too. But that's synchronised (with German audio). This is the reason why sometimes the pun is getting loss.

....or, WERE his voters capable voters.  :biggrin:

When you speak of "the only benefit of a democracy", we can only be speaking of relatively to other forms of governing, and when we do that democracy does not only have one benefit, I think the whole middle east is a good example of that.  :biggrin:
