...don't think they'd let me have a go at voting :(
whole thing's a public sideshow
admittedly obama is attempting something that resembles a near-ethical healthcare system, but his powers are severely limited. increasingly the american presidency is a position not unlike the current british monarchy
I don't want anyone on either side to win, but if Obama gets it, there's at least a chance, however slim. that gays, blacks, Muslims, deserters, single parents and other deserving groups won't get shat on every day of the year. If he doesn't, they've no chance. I'd rather Obama try and fail than Romney try and succeed.
Obama will have his hand forced by the Republicans anyway, so it's a moot point I suppose.
I'm confused — wouldn't the outcome be the same either way?
Or do you mean that you want to see Romney win without him even having to try?
I don't think he's great but he's hardly the cataclysm that Gringrich would be
