Good job we're both in a different country then, not the either of our statements could be viewed as intimidation in any way!

Whatever we did it must've worked though, well done America!

What's also a good sign other than Mitt being defeated, the legitimate rape, some woman rape so easy, pregnancy from rape is like having a child out of wedlock, pregnancy from rape is gods plan guys were all defeated. Bunch of F**ktards.

For a country and a population that is better than the rest of the world in so many ways, I cannot understand why your political situation is so weak and backwards. If a political campaign such as Romneys ran in Europe it would be a laughing stock. He'd be like Nick Griffin, get eggs thrown at him and humiliated on national television. Please sort it.

When you have a country that someting like 47% believes that the earth is 6/10 thousand years old its actually kind of easy to see. Hard to believe, but easier to see.

Come on, women get pregnant because it is pre-ordained by God.
Besides, children have a right to be born, just not healthcare and nutrition.

Earth is flat and the universe revolves around it. And the moon landing was filmed in a secret studio on Earth.

And how much did Romney spend on not getting elected? Something like 18 million dollars, wasn't it? Surely that money could have been spent on something better. Democracy in action. I vote for scraping democracy in the top levels of government and replacing it with meritocracy, not just in America, but everywhere.

We need direct democracy like that of the MAS in Bolivia. Get rid of the political party system, it's a bunch of bull poop.

* Leap, I don't have time to find and compare for the most accurate amount including all the super pac money so the totals are differing to each candidate but one helluva lot more than 18m.

I've heard about $6 billions were spent overall.
I don't think all countries are much better as far as candidates go (think Putin, Berlusconi even goddamn Sarkozy).
The reason for everything fucked in the US is quite simple: lobbying is legal.

I read total expenditure on both campaigns was $3 billion but who really knows??

Although I also read over $2 billion of that was from Romney's side and of that amount over $800 million was Sheldon Adelson, it's nice to know that it wasn't just the guy with the biggest finances that won but even so it's more than a bit fucked that they can waste so much money on crappy campaign ads and slandering each other!

I agree with frenchy on the lobbying, it's too fucked up to even go into! One of those situations that is pretty much too broken to fix at this stage!

Looked like a rock and a hard place to me. You're gridlocked for another four years because of congress. Vote one side in to lead and one to stop them?

Obama didn't get to do he wanted for four years as he had other people's mess to sort out. Now he's in his legacy period who knows what he'll do but he will probably attempt to repay those who voted him in.

We had a despot do that for 15 years in the biggest con trick of all. That nearly brought our country to our knees but no one saw it coming or more likely didn't want to admit to being fooled. The biggest Emperors new clothes story ever.

I think either way America was going to suffer for the next four years but Obama is probably the lesser of two evils. Good luck to you.
