As far as the US presidential election, I'm pulling for Obama or Giuliani.

and he played guitar! i bet he was a bedroom shredder who has a video of himself playing canon rock on youtube.

on a more serious note (albeit only slightly) none of the main perties appeal to me in the slightest at the moment. i'd sooner vote ukip than labour, which is pretty bad really.

TBH UK politics is a shambles at the minute because it's so childish. I might not even vote in the next election, even though I'll be able to, just because they're all a bunch if tossers.
--------
I think that the SNP is stuck up its own collective ar$e about independence, you just can't do it with a country that doesn't have the economy to support it. This is because England and Scotland need each other and it's all about the money (even though they say it isn't).
And whats with Slamond(tosspot) getting in talks about cooperation with NI when he wants to split form the UK? Hypocrite.
--------
Brown won't get in just because he's "Scottish" and the English want an English PM. It could be the money grabbing richboys getting in (tories) because of "Dave" Cameron's way of putting a spin on things.

In Canada, the Opposition thinks that the government can meet the Kyoto targets after the previous Liberal government let emissions increase by 27%. So now there is 33% to get rid of by 2012.

He's black, but he isn't a Muslim.

That's also debatable. Americans seem to call people black when they have like 1/32th of their heritage as African.

Meths, I see where you're coming from. Barack isn't black enough for me either.

You can be black without being African.

Just ask yourself one simple question whenever you incounter this type of statement. Is the person making it trying to make you think, or make you believe?


I'm just saying the libs are pretty effective at pointing at the conservatives and saying "He doesn't care about poor people, he love big business, he is a bigot." , but they seem to love Dr. Paul, even though he is economically libertarian/conservative (which I'm assuming is why they think conservatives hate poor people).

By the way, I'm not drinking at the well of liberal propaganda, I'm just aware of what they say. I'm actually really conservative.

Liberals like ron paul because he is socially libertarian and isolationist.

Don't vote green, they bring rain


(seriously though, do vote green)

I agree to an extent, but as an American, you know the Green Party takes up about 1% of the voters, which is sad, because they have some great ideas.

Me, I consider myself a Libertarian.
