This election cycle did rope me in, but I officially stopped caring last July.

I have always liked Ron Paul...but it was obvious Jesse Benton was destroying his campaign, Ron Paul never called him out for it, or cared to...

I have given up altogether, I didn't even vote today...screw it....


This country is going to crap anyway....

Oh, and you're right. I voted for Romney - but only because I just couldn't stand to see Obama win... but here we are.

The only silver lining I have in this is that those who voted him in will get EXACTLY what they asked for... and those chickens will come home to roost.

I have become apathetic to the extreme. The GOP continues to parade puppets because they're terrified to stand for anything substantive - meanwhile, Paul gets shoved out because he's too "extreme".

For F@ck sakes people, "extreme times give cause for extreme measures"... people would rather this nation die a slow painful death and deal with the uncomfortable truth and fix it.

I dont eat crumpets. I dont like thier consistency. And although I love tea, I have never had the good fortune to be invited to go to Buckingham Palace in order to take tea with Her Majesty. Why do you mention that?

Care to clarify what you are getting at?

How does this election "make you feel"

What, so, you dont care how we Canadians feel after the election, huh?

How does drinking tea and eating crumpets with Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham palace make you feel?


Sounds like some Canadian "Crown Jealousy". LOL

ETA: what does a crumpet taste like? Obviously we are having a crumpet shortage here in Texas. Got plenty of cornbread and yeast rolls. And we could carpet the state in tortillas......

Crumpets are little clumps of dry stale cookie-ish bread, your not missing too much.

I feel that with 4 more years of Obama rule..
It can only get worse for the country.

With his appointed Czars and all the crap he's doing.
It can only go down the drain.

I see NO Hope with that guy at the steering wheel!

How does it make you guys feel to know that there are only two parties with a hope in hell of ever running the nation?


I've moved to USA 10 years ago (from Sweden).
And I says it stinks!

Especailly when they have those Presidential Candidates Debates.
And ONLY TWO of the 12+ candidates (4 all states candidates) are in the debate!

Well sorry to say I was one of the kids who didn't care. My son IS one special kid.

For about 3 years now if you ask him what he wants to be when he grows up he says:
The President of the United States!!

I'm starting to think he's very serious....LOOK OUT!!!


Sounds good..

VOTE For MidnightSunshine-Kid 2020 !!

Better start the campaign fund now..

And according to Election 2012 live .
Washington state still has only counted 51.7% of the votes!

And.. they STILL have given the 12 electoral seats to Obama!
WHAT A FIASCO!

I feel cautiously optimistic. I imagine we will have several justices to replace and I am sure Obama will make a much more measured decision than Romney ever could have. I am glad that " Obama Care" will be allowed to take full effect so the dead weight will finally have to pay their fair share.

I think we will see the house start working across the isle or suffer the same fate Romney did.

One thing I have noticed already..... What happened to Benghazi Gate? It is like the tea bagging bunch suddenly forgot all about it now that the election is over. Anyone else not surprised?

Yes, medicine here is crazy expensive.
Say Cancer medicine..
It can cost you $200 000 or more!
It is not uncommon it cost $500 000 !!!

And going to the Dentist, and get a Denture ..
"Normal" price is $20 000 to $40 000 !!

It is insane...

And those prices.. are like that, because of the RIDICULUS INSURANCE policy's for dentist's and doctors!
And belive you me... it will NOT get any better with Obamacare! IT will be the opposit!

To be frank, the reason our NHS is failing is because our government has spent tens of billions of pounds on poor contracts between itself and private companies. And I am not just talking about medical companies, I am talking loosing thirty plus billion a year on bad contracts between our tax department and the people who own and control the buildings it is run from. I am talking about tens of billions per department, per year.

Thats why the NHS does not get the funding, and staffing required to run it effectively. It would be doable if our government were more careful with our cash, as could benefits, and a whole raft of other social schemes.
However, what happened to your mother in law is a bloody disgrace, and I utterly understand your position regarding the NHS in light of that travesty.


And 18 Billion ( $ 18 000 000 000 ) in Medicare Fraud!
Geeee.. if people for once could stop beeing so ***** selfish!

My positions are.....

Bring the troops home

Quit interfering in the domestic policies of other nations

Shut down bases we subsidize all over the world

Put troops along border states, let them spend money here in US.

Eliminate as much overeas spending/ cut foreign aid

Let states decide how to take care of citizens

No more property tax...I already feel like a serf...

No more lobbyists/bankers/corporations involved in government

No more bailouts....

No more TSA....

Thats just a few, I'm all for dismanteling the power of the federal government and allowing states to have free reign....

I have yet to see a Dem/Rep politician actively pursue any over seas spending, wars...ect.

They love the insignificant pet issues like Gay Marriage and Abortion....that shouldn't be the focus in a crumbling economy.


Sounds good.
When can I vote for You?

I feel like the people in my country do not understand how grave our condition is...


That's the thing.
50.5% of the people (those who voted for Obama), have NO Clue.

Then those who didn't vote.. Geee.. That's stupid.
Romney and Johnson would have needed those votes.

Canadians have a very close tie to America being neighbours and allies. Our television and movie watching is almost exclusively American content (except for Canadian gems like Due South
). We are heavily influenced by the politics that happen south of us but we are also a very progressive country and we definitely do not like war. For us Obama's policies are very agreeable with our own ideals, especially when it comes to equality and human rights.

I think if we could have Obama after you, we would almost unanimously vote him in as our Prime Minister, Canadian or not.


We are happy to give him to you Now.


I (since I am originally from Sweden) dislike all the war-crap my new country involve them self in.

But I like that there are Less Taxes than in Sweden.

I dislike the Health Care System.
It is soooo broken.
And ObamaCare will not fix it either.

I dislike the way Obama spend the country's money.
He have no clue how financing works.
He (and most of the Americans) don't know how to save by ditching expenses.

I hear that although Obama won the election, the Republicans did enough to make things hell in the senate, and put stumbling blocks in the way of Obamas plans.

How does it feel to live in America during an election year? How did you find your communities during this process? Were they united or highly divided? I would really love to hear the American ATSers veiw of the process, and of the result, so please...

....Your thoughts?


It doesn't really 'feel' like anything. I am not happy that Obama is president, but I am happy that Romney is not. I suppose the only real thing I feel is disappointed in all of the nasty behavior. I have seen gloating from the dems and outright name calling and venom spewed from the reps. I notice how a lot of Romney supporters have taken to calling people stupid, traitors, ect... all because someone didn't vote the way they thought they ought to have. I have seen posts from people going on and on about how it's time to come together, be a country together... and essentially trying to not gloat. Most of them sound like "yay my guy won.. now now don't get upset little reps, lets work together now" It seems almost condescending and rude in a way.

All in all I am ambivalent towards it all. So long as people think we have a two party system then nothing will ever change.


But since NONE of the other parties are given any TV-time.
Only a TINY fraction of the American people will vote for anything else than the Big Two!

It is a Scam!

More or less utterly disgusted.

Might as well quit my job, and start feeding of the government. Lose any kind of shame felt for asking for help.

Start saying stuff like "OH HELL YEAH YOU DUMB TAXPAYERS WILL BE BUYIN MY GROCERIES FOR 4 MO YEARS"

I am getting the feeling that it is standard amongst the voters who voted against Obama, that they havent actually paid much attention to the way Obamas plans are being put into action. Is that kind of willful ignorance as rife as it would seem, bearing in mind the amount of it that I have heard over the last few days?
