What is the voting makup of OWS. What percentage is voting for Obama opposed to those voting GOP?

[-] 3 points by AmericanSailor (3) 2 years ago

I believe in what Ron Paul says. He has been criticising the our government for over 10 years. He wants to cut military spending and go back to the gold standard. You want us to choose between a globalist and a crook? No thanks. Take a look at our constitution and you will see that only congress should have the power to print money. Therefore the federal reserve is unconstitutional. Furthermore, they make the people poorer as they drive inflation by flooding our market with new dollars. A real Republican believes in personal responsibility and accountability, not just for business, but for individuals. Punishing the rich for their success will only serve to destroy jobs or send them overseas, but if their wealth is gained unethically at the expense of others, then they even more to blame for our economic problems than welfare and taxes. Like I said, only Ron Paul seems to take this seriously, and I believe he is the best candidate, Republican or otherwise.

They are both hostile to OWS, along with the rest of the GOP. Neither one cares about the 99%. Obama's not much better either.

Rocky Anderson 2012!

If Rocky Anderson or Jill Stein had a serious chance at winning the election, then I'd throw either of them my vote in a heartbeat over the current slate of candidates. The problem is that most candidates that don't belong to one of the two major parties have zero chance of making it into the White House. If you really want to pressure Obama from the left then get involved in the congressional and state Democratic primaries and give him a slate of people on Capitol Hill that are willing to do what you want them to do- whether Obama likes it or not.

Unite in common cause. Hate the things that are wrong in this world. Support each-other in making things right. This is where the healing will begin.

I never vote for either of those candidates. I support Buddy Roemer. No one knows about him because they won't let him on the debates. Probably because he doesn't have a Super PAC, doesn't take any other PAC money, gives full disclosure of campaign funding only takes from individuals at a 100 dollar limit.

[-] 2 points by Nordic (390) 2 years ago

I've been a yellow-dog Democrat my whole life. But I will never vote Democrat ever again. Obama showed beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are two fingers on the same fist, and that fist is up your ass robbing you blind.

And they've figured out how to count the votes so that our votes don't matter. They can cook up any election result they want now.

So what do we do? We don't take the bait and fall into the trap of thinking this election matters, even in the fact of the massive propaganda onslaught, 24/7 of the "campaigns". Do not take the bait. like Frank Zappa said, if elections could change anything, they would be illegal. The guy had it figured out.

[-] 1 points by wellhungjury (296) 2 years ago

The media picked Romney a long time ago. Even with the SC results, I feel that Romney will still be the Republican candidate. In the last elections, the media picked Obama over Hillary. Hillary probably would have won the nomination otherwise. Now we have Romney vs Obama. My opinion is that the media picked Obama and that is ultimately who will win. Rarely does a voter surge change the propaganda machine of the media. Guess we will see in November.

[-] 1 points by jiradog (92) 2 years ago

Ron Paul or likely Constitution party.

while I'll take Newt any day over Mitt, most people don't realize that Newt can not win the nomination. Both Newt and Rick have failed to register in states ballots TOTALING 564 DELEGATES, remember any candidate needs 1,144 delegates out of 2,286 to win the nominee.

You'll have to wait and ask the guys who cut the hands off my cold dead body and use them to cast the vote...because that's the only way I'll ever vote GOP or Democrat

Unions hurt the economy by placing a price floor on wages. When you demand more income, you force a business to spend more money on equipment in order to make itself more productive, thereby destroying jobs. So while you enjoy a bigger paycheck in your union, the jobs that haven't left the country already are also going away.
By the way, the only president that has EVER balanced the budget since we went off the gold standard was Bill Clinton, and don't think it was because he was a Democrat. You want to vote for the next president? Don't vote based upon whether the candidate is a Democrat or Republican. And don't vote for a pretty face or a smooth talker who dances around the issues. Actually listen to the candidates and their message. And for God's sake don't narrow your vote to the candidates the MEDIA are propping up as the ONLY choices.

So I should hate him for being successful? Or should I hate him for trying to minimize the amount of tax he has to pay to an unbelievably inefficient government?

[-] 2 points by nucleus (3291) 2 years ago

It's people like Romeny that prevent the government from being efficient. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy that started with Reagan:

"Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem"

Not much irony when the head of government says that.

[+] -5 points by shadz66 (17718) 2 years ago

Re. ""Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem", that infamous phrase written for him but voiced by 'The Gipper' is :

a) An inherently anti-democratic statement in a 'Democracy' ;

b) Only True in a situation where The Govt. has been co-opted by The Banksters, Corporations and the 'Military Industrial Complex' &

c) Again only true in circumstances where there prevails "a government OF The People (The 99%) ; BY the people (a 1%) ; FOR the people (The Parasitic 0.01%) !

As such the only conclusion left to draw is that we are living in a demoCRAZY deMOCKERYcy in The U$A, UK and most of Europe !!

If you want Obama to have a chance, vote for Ron PauI. He is completely unelectable and will give Obama a legitimate chance in the general election.

Actually, I have re-evaluated my finances. I'm middle income with plenty of money in saving. I would almost vote a straight ticket for the democrats. The way they have f* America to date, if they had four more years the entire party would be dead and it would republicans for the next 40 years. Unions would be dead, the liberal agenda would be dead. Every poor person would finally say, "I have been voting for THIS and I got NOTHING...." Vote OBAMA,,,, VOTE OBAMA.

I don't think the United States can take another four years of ultra liberalism. It has been the most destructive force this country has ever faced. Another four years is enough time for Obama to finish us off.
