I think many people are on the fence about this one. It’s easier to tell the differences between the presidential candidates as you can watch 3 debates and can make a decision based on that. As for the local candidates, it is much harder to know what their policies are.
With regard to Obama, he hasn’t been able to deliver what he promised but then again that was probably impossible given the state of the global economy and the ongoing war.
Romney has the magical 5 point plan which any candidate can easily crush with a 6 point plan:-) I think they probably came up with a 5 point plan because it’s easier to sell than a 4 point or 7 point plan…
After the Bush disasters, I’m surprised there are any Republicans left in the US.
I belong to the upper middle class and I carry the US on my shoulders. “Hey, you need a $1,000 check – come here, take 2, heck take 5″, ” Oh Apple paid 2% on $38 billion in foreign income – don’t worry here’s a $2,000 donation (aka tax increase) to take care of that! It’s on me Tim – spend it wisely”
The situation is very frustrating for the middle class in the US and strangely there is an incredible amount of poverty in the States that foreigners don’t know about and never see in the movies where the average policeman lives in a $3 million apartment. Go to any low income ghetto and you’ll think you’re in Beirut…
@Slr – you’re right, most people do just vote for the party they are loyal to. Makes no sense, really but it’s how it works here. It might lead to a spiraling decline of the US in the long run but that’s neither here nor there:-)
