It's better I missed this one. I don't know what most of those people stand for. I don't even know what Obama stands for!

I would be surprised if anyone steps forward to challenge Obama. I think other possibilities are much more likely.

Though I was raised a liberal and a Democrat, I would be inclined to vote for Paul if I got a chance just for the message it would send.

Dear SO, I would very much like to disable my U2U inbox, or remove it altogether.
I do not have any interest in the slew of pointless data gathering polls of yours and because of these my inbox had been rendered useless. It is currently filled with nothing but your poll and result announcements. If not these then it is advertisements for staff authored threads. I'm tired of it, tired of the pointless opinionated polling and tired of the self promotional back-patting.

In all honesty, I can't say I'm at all liking the direction that ATS is being dragged down these last couple years. I can't help but feel the owners/staff of the site have long since lost site of what once made ATS a great site. It wasn't a lack of polls, softball ”interviews”, and a podcast turned ”radio show” that's now more about the hosts stroking each others egos while calling forum posters uninformed idiots than it is about discussing the topics of the week.

I've been reading these boards since early 2002 and finally joined up in 2009. No other forum had held me this long. I would hate to leave it, but with the massive drop in quality and care in the last couple years with no sign of things changing any time soon, it may be time for me to go elsewhere.

No doubt, as is the way these days, I'm likely just shouting at a wall. For what it's worth, there it is.

There are no words to describe my intense disappointment in the fact that Hillary Clinton received so many votes. Don't you people know that she is a cold-hearted corrupt devil in disguise?

She is one VERY VERY scary lady!

Her Hubby, Slick Willy, pretty much single handedly set up the present economic MESS.

It is instructive to read what Carroll Quigley, an influential former history professor at the Foreign Service Schools of Georgetown University, and Bill Clinton's mentor, has to say about an "international network".

At the end of the war of 1914 [World War 1], it became clear that the organization of this [secret] system had to be greatly extended... the task was entrusted to Lionel Curtis who established, in England and each dominion, a front organization to the existing local Round Table Group... In New York it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations....

In other words, this conspiracy was international from the start. And, beginning with the British diamond magnate, Cecil Rhodes, it was grounded in enormous wealth -- riches acquired through capitalism, not through the global socialism it envisions for all but the elite. The key players were power-driven bankers, rich corporations, and tax-free foundations that controlled the resources needed to buy the cooperation of publishers, media moguls, educational institutions, and government leaders across the political spectrum....

"I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records.... [I]n general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown...."

Therefore there can be no doubt that Clinton was a willing and KNOWING player.


Clinton signed into law many of the "new improved" Banking Laws that lead to the Economic meltdown:

Consolidation of Mega Banks, AIG Bailout and Foreclosuregate: Quick list of Banking laws

After the Great Depression, several laws were put in place to prevent another depression. The 1933 and 1934 Security and Exchange laws, The McFadden Act of 1927, The Glass-Steagall Act or Banking Act of 1933. Also the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956.

Clinton signed the following laws Negating the above: Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act of 1994 and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 revoked the above laws that were put in place to PREVENT another Great Depression.

More pro-banking Clinton laws:
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991: Allowed big banks to gobble up smaller banks more easily.

Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 and RTC Completion Act - Housing and business loans to minorities.

Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 - left CDSs unregulated and set up AIG bailout and Foreclosuregate. CDSs were UNFUNDED "insurance" placed on mortgages so ANYONE could gamble on whether or not a loan would go into foreclosure.With multiple CDSs on a loan the bank wins BIG if a loan is foreclosed AND the tax payer is the one who PAYS! A Great article detailing the set up of the AIG bailout and Foreclosuregate.


Clinton was the President who Ratified the North American Free Trade Agreement and the World Trade Organization Treaties (1995) and then got China admitted to the WTO.(2001) This set up the mass exodus of our jobs and a major trade inblance that drained US dollars out of the country.

Gene Sperling (Clinton's head of the National Economic Council) and William Daley (Clinton's Sec of Commerce) worked on China’s entry into the World Trade Organization, an event which caused millions of manufacturing jobs in U.S. to be permanently lost. Currently General Electric CEO Jeffery Immelt has been tapped to lead a newly created Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Obama is appointing this team of three TRAITORS to spearhead his economic policies. LINK

Clinton also set up the 2008 Food Crisis/Riots

Today's global food crisis shows "we all blew it, including me when I was president," by treating food crops as commodities instead of as a vital right of the world's poor, Bill Clinton told a U.N. gathering on Thursday. UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 23, 2008

President Bill Clinton... publicly apologized last month for forcing Haiti to drop tariffs on imported, subsidized US rice during his time in office. The policy wiped out Haitian rice farming and seriously damaged Haiti’s ability to be self-sufficient.


Fund-raising for President Clinton

Huang to Offer Guilty Plea
May 26, 1999
The Justice Department announced that John Huang has agreed to plead guilty to a single felony charge as part of an agreement that legal sources said promises that he will not be prosecuted in connection with his fund-raising for President Clinton.

Trie to Plead Guilty
May 22, 1999
Controversial fund-raiser Yah Lin "Charlie" Trie entered into a plea agreement with the Justice Department, winning leniency in exchange for telling all in an investigation of improper campaign contributions originating in China.

I don't get it why is "apparent inteligence" such a big factor in why you would vote a person in. Stephen Hawking is smart it does not mean he would make a good president.

Happy to see my fave Dem win something for once

He's as electable as RP though, so... well... sigh...

A DK/RP ticket? Even I'd vote for that!

How come my guy wasn't listed (besides the fact that I was more than likely the only one who wrote him in)? Seriously though, I voted for Former New Orleans Mayor Ray "Chocolate City" Nagan.

How many of his ATS supporters actually live in his soon to disappear Congressional District???

I live in it and have seen his failures first hand. Denise like Denise and he will always be a day late and a dollar short when it comes to his constituents. He'll say anything to keep his name in the limelight. Or he'll even visit Syria just to generate some Kuciniwho? buzz... Pack your carpet bag and head off to Seattle Dennis. Don't expect a warm welcome there. ha ha ha

Dennis only existed in Ohio because of organized labor unions and they have mostly lost their jobs forever. Dennis, Big Labor's lap dog.

The majority would STILL vote for Obama because of his "apparent intelligence"??! Isn't that the exact mistake democrats made last election? Yikes...

We should vote in Hillary just so Bill could be the First Lady!

I didn't participate in this poll either, but I just laughed at the other vote being so high, and for, you guessed, Dr. Paul. Haha. We should invent a new party, called something like the Lipubrocrats, just for Ron Paul. As far as Clinton for president, I am not sure at this point how I feel. I would need to do some more digging, but I do not discount her at this point either.

Interesting poll to say the least, but I wish we had more of a breakdown as to demographics, etc, on the people who took the poll. That would give us a better idea as to what these results will mean in the actual primaries imo.

It's an interesting poll, however, as it's very unlikely that the DNC will nominate anyone else but the incumbent, it's assured that Obama will get the nod.

Unfortunately for the GOP/TEA Party, no current candidate stands much of a chance against the President.

Ron Paul seems to be a favorite online and in many circles, however with his history of taking money from white supremacist groups like Stormfront, it's unlikely that he would get the nomination from the GOP.

It's likely that Obama will get a second term afterwards he will be replaced by a GOP contender that will undoubtedly further Prescott Bush's plan for a Fascist Coup in America (which incidentally is the TPM party line) and besides Hillary or Kucinich there are no real strong Democratic leaders.

It's sad times for the United States indeed.

First off (not that I support him) I'm surprised that Matt Damon wasn't included in the others section as there was talk of him running.

Secondly I'm not that surprised that most who voted consider intelligence of a candidate as important. This is true of democrat leaning voters, whereas republican voters tend to believe those who are well educated / too intelligent as elitist and don't trust them as much.

I remember some analyst saying that the average American likes to feel that he is at least as intelligent if not more intelligent than his / her own President, whilst in Europe the opposite is true.

I find it interesting that nearly all the candidates voted for in this straw poll were most rated for their apparent intelligence!! Does that mean that one just has to appear clever to become president?

ETA: If this is the mindset of democrat followers then I am seriously worried about the future of America.

Sure... as opposed to Republicans... who show NEITHER real nor apparent intelligence. Dip#...
