Since the forum crash, I have been going into political watching with the GOP candidates instead of debating religion or any bs such as that. I kind of take that back since GOP and religion go hand in hand.
Rick Santorum, reading him, wants us to go into a Catholic Theocracy. Hearing some of what he has done in PA, and what he wants to do, is pretty scary to say the least.
In one of the debates, I remembered one of them stated he wanted to start another war in addition to going back to Iraq. I don’t know why all of our candidates want to be in Iraq so badly, except Ron Paul as He doesn‘t want us in Iraq or any of the other “wars” we are fighting.
Speaking of RP, he and Santorum got into a scuffle at the New Hampshire debate where Paul was calling Santorum corrupt, since Santorum is all about big government, big spending etc. Kind of funny that one of Santorum’s rebuttals was that He was the Head of a Health Care company or something of the sort, was medical related and was a huge business. I also remembered they went on about him being a lobbyist, and made a pretty penny because of it.
For the kicker, find out what Santorum really means. 1st result on Google search should tell you, and it will be pretty sad to have that as our president!
^^^I'm behind him in the Republican primaries for Ohio. That is, to reassure President Obama's re-election I had two options. My initial one was to go with Herman Cain and force the casual independent uninformed voters to vote for Obama in the generals if he were to get the primary. First, though, if Cain were to have made a semi-successful run at the candidacy, I think you would have seen the racist folks come flying out of the wood-works of the bible belt. They would never let a black man get their candidacy, and if they did, the lesser of two options for the same independents and fence line conservatives is who? Obama...by a country fucking mile.
Ah, Herman Cain. With all the bs that the GOP has spouted, I would actually welcome him back. He would have been interesting and entertaining to say the least. Getting the 999 tax plan from the Sims, quoting a Pokemon Movie while leaving, he could have had a few great ideas there. Maybe getting a military strategy from Call of Duty, getting a society like Legend of Zelda going, maybe look to Battlefield as to how to spend our money and on what kind of technology, the possibilities could have been endless!
Now, obviously, I am down to only one option. John Huntsman. When the race card gets taken off of the table; what else do you have to play against your own incompetent party? Competence of course. Well that and religion. He is a Mormon, but the fact that *beautiful southern accent* "he speaks that yellow man language" and "wears his magic underpants", all make him the antonym to the general, stupid, uniformed, registered republican. Ergo he gets my vote. Hopefully in turn causing turmoil amongst the GOP and the re-election of Obama.
I actually agree to an extent with you. I also find it funny on Huntsman taking it to Romney on Chinese foreign policy in the debates. Romney being an idiot, saying Hunstman’s plan with China mimics Obama’s, and with the economy improving despite Romney’s claims, I think Romney helped Huntsman here to be honest.
My personal opinion, I think a Ron Paul presidency with Hunstman as vice president could work the best, based only off the little bit that I know of Hunstman. The rest of the GOP is trash to say the least, and Obama, I’ll support him over anybody else but Paul for presidency (Hunstman, I’ll have to do more research on. Him wanting us to go back to war is a turnoff for me.)
Obama is fixing the country, but at the same time though, I’m not a fan of him extending the Patriot Act, not a fan of NDAA (this bill was a step from going from democracy to dictatorship), and may not vote for him at all if he actually passes SOPA. If he got rid of those 3 bills, He would actually be one of the better presidents we have had in office. That being said, I did pay close attention to the House Republicans during that tax bill Obama demanded to pass, and it was definitely the Republicans who fucked us all up. I notice anything and everything Obama want’s to do that benefit’s the entire middle-class, the Repubs try to take it down. It baffles me that Obama signed that Republican created NDAA bill. At least he was able to remove the worst of it before passing it.
Of course this isn't going to happen. Romney has far too much money. He'll get the nomination and we'll see whether or not the GOP gets behind him. Just hoping we don't take ten steps back after taking only a couple forward.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment!
I agree, this is probably what is going to happen. The Bible Belt will freak. Who are they going to vote for, the black guy or the Mormon?
