    i wish there was a candidate that i thought had a decent chance of addressing these issues, but i don't see one on the ticket. the US primary/nomination process, toxic campaign ads, dirt digging squads, and pretty much unfettered political donations means that it's not exactly a merit selection process. $$
    From this I'm assuming that you're hoping as a non-American that Romney gets in. Is that right? If so, would you still vote Romney if you were American?

    Non-American here.

    I'm/we're more concerned about how us non-Americans are affected than how Americans are affected by the elections. So foreign policy is my/our main concern. But then again it is muddy waters isn't it?

    Bush/Republicans started two massive wars during their period in power whereas when the Democrats obtained power not a single country was invaded but the Arab Spring happened. Was the US government influential in it? It pobably was.

    It did overthrow quite a few dictatorships so.......... hmmm.. Democracy I guess. I hope it doesn't backfire / radicals would take over.

    When I said that we are more concerned about the foreign policy I completely ignored the US's economic policy which has a massive affect on the rest on the world. So God Bless America!

    no, that's not right. i wouldn't vote romney and i don't hope that. my concern about the economy doesn't equate to me thinking romney is a good candidate. i'm just hoping america starts to drag itself out of its hole pretty soon, but i'm not convinced either guy can do it...which isn't just about the candidates. it's about the culture of washington and also the size of the problem.

    Why everyone's for Obama? What did Romney said to cause that?

    Non-American living in a crazy US state for career building purposes . . .

    Definitely, I'd vote for Obama. Health care here is a joke. And Romney just doesn't get what it's like to not have a kijillion dollars in your backup bank account--why would any non-gazillionaire vote for that kind of guy to run their country? He's going to screw you over and expect you to adapt and be just fine.

    Plus, the women's issues that should have been closed down in the 1950s. Those affect me, as a woman living in this country.

    Well, for one thing, Romney lies. Lots. I mean, every politician lies, but from what I can see Romney takes the biscuit. If he manages to win this election it sets up one hell of a precedent. I dont want to live in a world where the most powerful country is run by the biggest liar, the man with the least integrity.
    I hope I'm wrong, but I believe that he is a fraud, and I think despite all of his rhetoric about being a champion of the working class, it will turn out to be hollow -- Bernie Sanders on Trump

    Mitt Romney's a joke.

    He came to London during the 2012 Olympic games, annouced that the UK is small and builds small cars that no one wants to buy then fucked off to Poland for a week.

    He also said something like this, this week;
    'We don't want an economic down turn like in Europe, and in Spain and in Italy."

    Like what the Hell America? That's just retarded. He must think everyone speaks french there, in Europe.
