    I should have kept my silence until the polling stations close just incase anyone anywhere actually cared about what I said in regards to this election. It's not for us to decide who the Americans elect as their president.

    Who cares? It's an opinion poll...the point of the topic is to find out exactly who those outside america would decide on.

    Also in my opinion that video you posted was scary as fuck!

    Sigh. Check THIS out....

    http://news.yahoo.com/paul-ryan-says...-politics.html


    CASTLE ROCK, Colo. -Paul Ryan squeezed in time on a four-stop, five-state day for a conference call with evangelical voters Sunday evening, issuing a warning about a second Obama term saying the president is putting the country on a "dangerous path" that compromises "Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values."

    ...The GOP vice presidential nominee said in the "critical battleground states" it will make a "big difference" if people "are worried about…whether or not we're going to go down the path the president has put us on."

    "It's a dangerous path," Ryan said on his opening remarks on the call, which has been rescheduled at least once. "It's a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty, and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values that made us such a great an exceptional nation in the first place."

    ...As he does on the stump, he criticized Obama for the administration's mandate that hospitals and other employers affiliated with religious groups provide insurance coverage for contraception.

    "We should not have to sue the federal government to keep our constitutional freedoms," Ryan said, referring to the Catholic Church's lawsuit over the mandate.

    "Imagine what he would do if he actually got reelected. It just puts a chill down my spine," Ryan said....

    I just have trouble believing people can say this kind of stuff with a straight face. Except I know Ryan believes it.

    Is Obama really the antichrist? The guy just happens to belong to a different denomination of Christianity than Ryan does, which makes it negligible to Ryan. I don't think either side is advocating the butchering and eating of children, or putting porn in the public schools, or whatever other crazy stuff would be truly bad for people. No one is out to undermine "western values." It's just so stupid.

    See, this, on top of the past experiences with republican international politics, is why people outside the US generally consider republicans to be nuts. No offense.

    I'm surprised that something like this hasn't been posted yet:




    Romney, Pakistan supports you. Not, like, all the way, but maybe about 60%-ish out of those who actually care?

    ^ I was going to, but I'd already posted it in the "who is voting for Romney" thread.

    Yeah, for all his faults Romney played no part in the assassination of their honoured guest Bin Laden. Faux pas, Obama. Faux pas!

    But the point about the truth here is that it comes back to the informed citizenry in democracy. The more civic literacy there is, the harder it is for a politician to push a policy on the basis of falsehoods, therefore you have a lot less scenarios where the voters reject obviously superior options like national health care.

    I couldn't tell you what denomination the current PM is, it's just understood that it's not cool to drag that into the political arena (in an obvious way). If our politicians ended every speech with "God bless Britain", we'd probably have them committed.
    Thank you, Oliver Cromwell / Alastair Campbell.
    I have no doubt our devout Christians would insinuate or just explicitly declare that those men are charlatans and not people of real faith. For the devout religion is all encompassing, and religion is the most important thing to live up to, and a person who picks and chooses when to push religious values must be someone who doesn't believe religion is all encompassing, meaning he or she has failed to do the most important thing by living up to the religion.
