I've voted Democratic for a while.
However, I did vote for Ross Perot instead of Clinton twice.
I have NOT been disappointed by Obama -- even though I voted for him -- because I KNEW there was no way voting for one President was going to change
this system when it's been 4 decades in the planning to bring it down. I just can't tell if he is naive or has a gun to his head when conceding on
every issue. He passes a Tea-Party budget bill which of course will be blamed on Democratic principles and Socialism -- God help us but there are too
many who would believe that because Obama cut spending -- it's somehow a socialist plan.
>> I would DEFINITELY be interested in Democratic opponent for Obama -- seeing how someone needs to remind him of what Democrats stand for.
I'd go for Dennis Kucinich, Howard Dean, or someone else who has been bucking the establishment (as much as they are able). Kucinich proposed
impeachment of George Bush -- which was proper because lying us into a war is about the worst crime there is. He also proposed impeachment of Obama
for his "extra" involvement in Libya -- which I thought might be the right thing on principle, but not very practical nor a wise move; we've
forgotten principles -- why push it now?
Maybe some of the Green Party or good old Jerry Brown -- we used to worry about "diluting" the chance of Dems to win and getting another Fascist on
the Supreme Court -- but the damage has been done. There is nothing in the system that seems designed to solve the problems. So we might as well VOTE
for someone good, rather than someone practical -- PRACTICAL is not going to pull us out of the death spiral we are in.
>> I'm pretty sure, however, that VOTING won't accomplish much -- other than replace a very corrupt Republican with a slightly less corrupt Democrat
who has no spine. But I'm in a state with electronic voting machines and they probably wouldn't allow too much change.
We also have no justice system that can find ANY criminals who make more than $1 Million a year -- so it's a no-go on following up all the PROVEN
hacking going on of the elections, and it's a no-go on stopping election shenanigans as if the Tea Party were popular -- it's just a bunch of people
raising a stink and getting TV time, because it's used as an excuse for the Politicians to do what their sponsors want them to do.
So it's going to be Obama or "Rick Perry" -- because he seems to be the most controllable and "bible thumper acceptable" of the lot. I know that
"Mitt" seems like a shoe-in for the Republicans, but just being an outsourcing, leveraged buy-out king without the "Baby Jesus" stamp of approval
from the Armageddon lobby -- means he won't be helping to keep the "useful fools" doing useful things.
Since Obama is going to win that match-up, it will be even MORE proof that he is the spawn of satan -- and THAT is what will pass for debate.
>> If Norway would accept me as a citizen and I could find a good job -- I'd move the family instead of vote.
