We all know that a politician is a politician. Whether you vote Republican or Democrat, just remember how virtually all politicians voted for the war regardless of the party or didn't vote at all to protect their images.

The news spends all the time on issues which don't matter to Americans. Foreign wars, gay marriage, financial bailout for bankers.

Has anyone dared thought what it would be like to live without all this bullshit?

Most of my friends are passionately into politics whereas I really don't give a rats ass. I'm convinced that it really doesn't matter who gets elected.

I care about politics. A lot. But I’m a libertarian, so Obama and McCain are the same person to me. I really could not care less who wins.

BINGO!! That's a direct hit.

Now, I'm going back to my Ardbeg and pipe.

I am registered but chose not to vote for either major party.

The entire political system needs an upheaval. The system is corrupt at all levels. Neither of the current puppets will do a thing different than what they're going to be told to do.

While it is rabidly blatant that the system is broken and corrupt most people, it seems, do not care. We need a revolution but without any one to fight for one, it will always be business as usual. Their should be riots, dissent and acts of treason instead of people sitting idly by hoping that a talking head will fix their money problems.

Stupendousman doesn't seem to care that much one way or the other.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

I'm not even from the states and I care, haha. I'm just curious to see what will happen come November next year. A year into Presidency in this turmoil and I'd be interested in seeing what will have changed. I genuinely believe the world would be a 'cleaner' place with a Gore President, and I think we need enthusiasm right now and on that front Obama has the edge..

I was on the motorway a while back (Northern Ireland ... corrupt fun) and actually saw a car bumper sticker: "Obama '08"
