Who ever figured it was a good idea to separate American by creating both parties at home had an agenda other than America. Just Saying!

Yes I Voted too! :-)
Never will happen as long as your voting republican and democrat. The forefathers predicted the political parties would be the end of America.

I voted today for Gary Johnson.

I wasnt old enough to register during the last election and by the time i went to register for this one the deadline had passed here in SC. So i will vote during the next election if the country makes it till then... that being said South Carolina went my way so i guess my vote wasnt needed this time around lol

The worst part will be going to work for all these lousy Obama voters in the morning. The same people responsible for the hardships we all endure.

I spent 4 years hunting down taliban/terrorists/AQI while with the Marine Corps. Lots on LOOOOONG hours, hard work, sacrifice....etc. First day in office, what does he do? Wants to release them. Close down Gitmo and release the majority. The ones he did release are now back to fighting us again. I have numerous reason for the dislike,but thats the main one.

I didn't vote as i'm in Australia

Looks like you guys are going to have a bumpier 4 years ahead of you...

Obama had a better marketing campaign, you weren't voting for him or his previous 4 years of nothing positive... but instead voting for his family! Thats how i percieved it from the opposite side of the globe - popularity contest!

I have even heard comments that claim she is becoming more influential than Oprah

Well, the majority have voted and the mob have spoke... unfortunately, the majority of people are always wrong (and usually broke too) as they are simply following the rest of the herd and can't comprehend common sense or logic

If Obama picks up the economy and has everyone making money, he will lose the next election... if he runs the country into the ground and slowly influences the market here and there with small improvements before the next campaign, there is a good chance he might get a 3rd term in office.

This is a world wide dilemma and not based or directed to any particular country! The european market is next to make drastic changes followed by developing countries.

In Australia, the mining industry has almost grinded to a halt... what does that mean on a world scale? China, India, Europe and America aren't spending on infrastucture. Iron Ore prices have almost halved in value over the past 6 months!!! Does this mean china's bubble may be about to burst if they have plenty of supply but no demand

Back on topic... Do you get fined if you don't vote?

Simmo.

Gitmo was never closed and Taliban/Alquada is now our ally in Egypt, Syria and Libya. America doesnt care who it deals with as long as it gets what it wants. Thats why they give guns to the same people who was shooting at you.

Presidents dont make policy. If you want a reason not to like Obama its he did what every other president did since Kennedy, he also signed executive orders Agenda 21 and NDAA.

The voting records of both candidates are the same. They both want to back Israel in attacking Iran. War has worked out so well for us why not. There will be no difference since there one in the same. The horse and pony show continues.

When the prez tried to shut down Gitmo, he also got shutdown. His policy was to close it. We don't have allies with taliban/AQI....no clue where you got that from. Do we support rogue milita's/insurgents that AQI may fund? Ya, its possible. And do we give guns to them? YUP! But, whoever says war never sold anything...I beg to differ.

I don't vote though. I never will. Just a bunch of unkept promises if you ask me.

There were 2 not very strong candidates. If people seriously think Romney would do a better job in the next 4 years they are mistaken. he promised 12 million new jobs?? Where are they coming from?? Back from overseas?? I doubt it. Just listening to the sh!t spew out of his mouth would make me want to puke. He is as transparent, fake and out of touch as most Hollywood stars or most people with incredible wealth. So do I think Obama is a stellar President??.... No but at least he is more grounded and in touch. I know Ill get bashed for this because of the famous excerpt from a very long speech about the government built your business and all that. I didnt like that either but listen to Romney talk is like nails on a chalkboard. How much money did he make and hide as to not pay taxes on it?? I know this is what rich people do but not rich people that are running for the presidency and pointing fingers at the other guy saying he spent too much of our money. Hes like Thurston Howell from Gilligans Island (if you guys remember back that far!!) So yeah I voted Obama.

When I was a lot younger, in middle school, we had this thing called student council. Some of you may have it, others may not. It's when a student is voted in to be the class president. Every year, these kids would stand infront of all their peers on a podium, and read their speach to the whole class. For us, it was around 100...i think.

Do you know who always won? The kid who said:

"I will put soda machines in every classroom!"

"Recess for half the day!"

"...and I will put a stop to ALL homework!!!"

It has always stuck to me that every 4 years, these campaigns remind me of student council elections.
