2: A Retard - A man who belives the earth is 6000 years old. In any other contry (yes even cuba, iran.. bla bla bla) saying shit like that would automaticly make you a non suitable president.

But hey its the land of the free and the home of the brave??? Whatever the f..k that now is, yes americans you are really free and brave....

Even in the midst of the worst economic times since the 1930s.... the US is STILL way better than your boring, inconsequential, suicide-prone little country.

As for you not knowing what problem we have with Muslims... just wait a decade or 2 ---- and you'll get a chance to taste Islam in all its glory.

Hell, Norway's muslim population is tiny, but MOST rapes are committed by Muslims. Just a small preview.

Good luck.

1) Every president since Abraham Lincoln, and Congress, have made such a mess of the U.S., and the Supreme Court has backed them on every move. They have systematically stripped the American Citizen of every right in the Bill of Rights, and have amended it to the point that it is unrecognizable from the document put in place by the Founding Fathers. *sorry for the run on sentence*
2) Yes it is a fucking mess because the American populace are too ignorant to research and vet their candidates, and the ones that do are 90% wackjobs that do not understand that the country they wish to create resembles a theocracy more than the democratic republic we're supposed to be.
3) The only reason that I hold your point valid is because we are a global community. It's more like the countries are neighborhood watchdogs and our economies have become so entangled that what happens in other countries directly effects and affects us. Our society trends are affecting one another and our political trends effect one another.

TBH, Iceland was a great example of what we in America have the right to do, but cannot and choose not to do both out of cynicism and the mother-fucking Patriot Act and NDAA 2012.

Uh... you DO realize that in America we have this thing called Separation of Powers... a Madisonian system of Checks-and-Balances... and other similar institutes.

And then we have this other things called STATES rights.... You see, unlike Russia where KGB oligarch thug like Vladimir Putin can just cancel out laws and constitution and instead come up with his own system of APPOINTING Governors of each respective region.... in the United States, a President is NOT supposed to have a dictatorial power mandate.

Look America has had a couple of amazing, historically unprecedented runs of power & prosperity -- from 1946 to 1970s..... and then again from 1982 to September 2008.

Right now we're working our way out of a Perfect Storm of a Recession. Mind you, historically an AVERAGE recession lasts 5-6 years. And this was no ordinary recession.

So right now it's fashionable for every half-brained monkey to say "America is broken, the system is outdated, blablabla".

Wrong. America is just fine. We just need to wait for the housing market to bottom out.... close to the borders to illegals.... tweak of a few legislative things in both federal and state congress. And watch this economy start growing again -- because when push comes the shove, NOONE can touch the US in the mixture of freedom, dynamism, diversity, Hollywood, fun, excitement, military power, democratic institutionsand long-term stability.

Not China. Not Russia. Not Turkey. Noone.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and the young country called the US of America will emerge all the stronger for it.

Fact.

Romney will lose becasue a lot of dead people will and welfare queens will voe for oabama.

Gallup produced results based on thousands of voter contacts indicating that Mitt Romney is leading in national early voting by roughly six percentage points. Last night, another venerable polling outfit confirmed Gallup's findings:

From Pew Research:
The Pew Research Center survey found that the race is even among all likely voters nationwide (47% Obama, 47% Romney). Unlike the last campaign, the race also is close among voters who say they have already voted. In the poll, conducted Oct. 24-28, 19% of likely voters say they have already voted; that is unchanged from the same week in the 2008 campaign (Oct. 23-26, 2008). Currently, Romney holds a seven-point edge among early voters (50% to 43%); because of the small sample, this lead is not statistically significant. At this point four years ago, Obama led John McCain by 19 points (53% to 34%) among early voters.

[link to www.people-press.org]

The overall sample was roughly 1700 voters, only about half the size of Gallup's pool, but resulting in nearly the exact same early voting outcome. In this case, Romney by seven. Gallup found that Obama led McCain by 15 points in early tallies at this stage in 2008; Pew puts the gap at 19 points, so their 2012 numbers represent a 26-point swing to the GOP ticket.
Townhall:
[link to townhall.com]

And then, we have Democrat Denver Mayor saying this:
Hancock even broke news on that Wisconsin trip, telling voters if the election were to be held right now the president would lose Wisconsin and its coveted 10 electoral votes. ... “We have not turned out the vote early,” Hancock told the newspaper. “The suburbs and rural parts of Wisconsin – the Republican base – are voting. President Obama’s base has yet to go vote. We’ve got to get our people to go vote.”
[link to ace.mu.nu]

MORE from Townhall:
“The Gallup numbers nationally confirm what we think is happening here in Ohio,” says one Romney official. “It’s two things. One, their margin of victory in early voting is greatly diminished — drastically diminished. And two, they are having a very difficult time generating enthusiasm among young people.”

Asked for evidence to support those claims, the official cited a Romney tally showing absentee and early voting is ten percent higher in counties McCain won in 2008 than in counties Obama won. He also pointed to sluggish early voting in the Toledo area, which Obama won in ’08, and particularly energetic early voting in the Cincinnati area, which McCain won. In addition, the official argues that Republicans are “outperforming our share of voter registration in absentee requests and early votes” and that the GOP has “closed the gap on Democrats’ historical absentee and early vote advantage for 20 of the past 21 days.”

When Florida is a landslide, and OH, PA, NH, IA, etc. are called by the networks for Romney early, I expect disheartened and lazy libs on the West Coast to stay home. That will expand the margin of victory in the popular vote beyond what all these polls say.

The lamentations, recriminations, and accusations of the liberal Man-Womyn on MSNBC will be the stuff of the ages to watch. MUST-SEE TV!!

Romney is pretty smart. I've never seen anywhere where Romney mentioned 6000 years reference.

I'd say you're a major libtard douchebag.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

University, France mission, marriage, and children: 1965–75
Romney attended Stanford University during the academic year of 1965–66.[17] He was not part of the counterculture of the 1960s then taking form in the San Francisco Bay Area.[17] In May 1966, he joined a counter-protest against a group staging a sit-in at the university administration building in opposition to draft status tests.[17][27] He continued to enjoy occasional pranks.[nb 2]
In July 1966, he left the U.S. for a thirty-month stay in France as a Mormon missionary,[17][30] a traditional rite of passage in his family.[nb 3] He arrived in Le Havre, where he shared cramped quarters with three others, and conditions were spartan.[10][32] Rules against drinking, smoking, and dating were strictly enforced.[10] Most individual Mormon missionaries do not gain many converts[nb 4] and Romney was no exception:[32] he later estimated ten to twenty for his entire mission.[37][nb 5] He initially became demoralized and later recalled it as the only time when "most of what I was trying to do was rejected."[32] He soon gained recognition within the mission for the many homes he called on and the repeat visits he was granted.[10] He was promoted to zone leader in Bordeaux in early 1968, and soon thereafter became assistant to the mission president in Paris.[10][32][39] Residing at the Mission Home for several months, he enjoyed a mansion far more comfortable than the lodgings he had stayed in elsewhere in the country.[39] When the French expressed opposition to the U.S. role in the Vietnam War, Romney debated them in return, and their hostility on the subject reinforced Romney's support for the U.S. effort.[10][32]

Mitt's father George (pictured here in a 1968 poster) lost the Republican presidential nomination to Richard M. Nixon but later served in Nixon's cabinet.

Mitt's mother Lenore (promoted here on a button) lost a Senate race in 1970, and he worked for her campaign.
In June 1968, an automobile he was driving in southern France was hit by another vehicle, seriously injuring him and killing one of his passengers, the wife of the mission president.[nb 6] Romney was not at fault in the accident.[nb 6] He became co-president of a mission that had become demoralized and disorganized after the May 1968 general strike and student uprisings and the car accident.[40] With Romney rallying the others, the mission met a goal of 200 baptisms for the year, the most for them in a decade.[40] By the end of his stint in December 1968, he was overseeing the work of 175 others.[32][41] As a result of his stay, Romney developed a lifelong affection for France and its people, and has remained fluent in French.[43][44]
At their first meeting following his return, Romney and Ann Davies reconnected and decided to get married.[45] Romney began attending Brigham Young University (BYU), where she had been studying.[46] The couple married on March 21, 1969, in a civil ceremony in Bloomfield Hills.[47][48] The following day, they flew to Utah for a Mormon wedding ceremony at the Salt Lake Temple (Ann had converted to the faith while he was away).[47][48]
Mitt had missed much of the tumultuous American anti-Vietnam War movement while away in France. Upon his return, it surprised him to learn that his father had joined the movement during his unsuccessful 1968 presidential campaign.[32] George was now serving in President Richard Nixon's cabinet as United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. In a June 1970 newspaper profile of children of cabinet members, Mitt said that U.S. involvement in the war had been misguided – "If it wasn't a political blunder to move into Vietnam, I don't know what is" – but supported Nixon's ongoing Cambodian Incursion as a sincere attempt to bring the war to a conclusion.[49] During the U.S. military draft for the Vietnam War, Romney sought and received two 2-S student deferments, then a 4-D ministerial deferment while living in France as a Mormon missionary. He later sought and received two additional student deferments.[27][50] When those ran out, the result of the December 1969 draft lottery ensured he would not be selected.[27][50][51]
At culturally conservative BYU, Romney remained isolated from much of the upheaval of that era.[32][46] He became president of the Cougar Club booster organization and showed a new-found discipline in his studies.[32][46] During his senior year, he took a leave to work as driver and advance man for his mother Lenore Romney's eventually unsuccessful 1970 campaign for U.S. Senator from Michigan;[22][47] together, they visited all 83 Michigan counties.[52][53] He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with highest honors in 1971,[46] giving commencement addresses to both the College of Humanities and to the whole of BYU.[nb 7]
The Romneys' first son, Taggart, was born in 1970[34] while they were undergraduates at BYU and living in a basement apartment.[46] Ann subsequently gave birth to Matthew (1971) and Joshua (1975). Benjamin (1978) and Craig (1981) would arrive later, after Romney began his career.[34]
Mitt Romney wanted to pursue a business career, but his father advised him that a law degree would be valuable to his career even if he did not become a lawyer.[56][57] Thus, he enrolled in the recently created joint Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration four-year program coordinated between Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School.[58] He readily adapted to the business school's pragmatic, data-driven case study method of teaching.[57] Living in a Belmont, Massachusetts house with Ann and their two children, his social experience differed from most of his classmates'.[47][57] He was nonideological and did not involve himself in the political issues of the day.[47][57] He graduated in 1975 cum laude from the law school, in the top third of that class, and was named a Baker Scholar for graduating in the top five percent of his business school class.[54][58]

Re: GALLUP: Mitt Romney Now LEADING In National Early Voting- PEW Confirms That Today!
I'm an economist and worked my way into the middle class. First in my family to college and I've lived the dream. I can tell you without a single doubt in my mind that Romney will liquidate the middle class and give astronomical handouts to the 1%. Voted Bush twice, voted McCain, will NOT vote Romney. Obama isn't much better but is the only option to protect my dream and those of all Americans working hard to achieve a middle class comfortable life.

I wasn't even alive, but I BET that's what you socialist clowns were saying in 1980.

About how Mitt Romney, err I mean, Ronald Raegan was going to bomb Soviet Union!

LOL, dream on you fear-mongering twat. American leadership has saved the world from the scourge of Nazism, Stalinism, Mao-ism and is in the process of holding Islamism in check.

(That, until the darling of Leftists all over the world -- Barack Obama -- came along with his disasterous pro-Muslim Brotherhood policies....)

Jusr wait until right-wingers Stephen Harper and Mitt Romney build a major pipe-line and start making use of North America's huge shale-oil, coal and natural gas reserves to jump start the ailing economy.

Boy will liberals in Canada and US be pissed! They will be rooting for bad things to happen every day -- just like during Bush administration, Liberals were PRAYING for Americans to be killed in Iraq as much as possible to make GOP look bad.

You sick puppies, LOL.

I think your giving his nobel peace prize to much credit.
 Quoting: sonic doom


He stole that from a woman who saved over 2,500 Jewish children from the Nazi's, who was captured and tortured, sentenced to death and escaped the Nazi's, and never once gave up the location of the children, nor the documents pertaining to their whereabouts.

Irena Sendler. She kicked some serious fucking ass.

Yep.

While Obama would gleefully give up all the classified state secrets any time his gay bath-house buddies would "tickle" him!

Oh yes, he would!!!!!!
