That tells me the questions are not really relevant to what we are voting for, just to what most people would consider right, which are two different kettles of fish.
Some times, you have reasons to hold your nose and vote one or another way you normally would not vote, as there is more to voting than the obvious sound bites, fueled by the character assassination and propaganda on both sides, that survey seems based on.
No, seriously, it was a good post, just a bit over the top when demonizing what others may spend their hard earned money on.
A bit of a first world person's view of what is important or not and why and try to make that an example in a political debate.
Me for example, according to that website, I should be voting for Jill Stein. I would say that's accurate, since politically I'm to the left of Ghandi. But, since she doesn't have a chance, and since there are some policies of hers that I do disagree with, I'm voting for Obama.
They were pretty straightforward questions. I don't see how character assassination or propaganda would have an effect on the answers. Maybe you can choose a couple of questions and explain how.
On one hand, you accuse me of:
---" ... what you THINK Obama stands for is skewed by whatever rhetoric it is that you're listening to ..."---
On the other, you state this:
---" ... I don't see how character assassination or propaganda would have an effect on the answers. ... "---
Which is it?;)
I said everyone does not need a 100" tv and a Hummer and it is offensive to think they deserve them, and everyone is not going to be able to have the be all and end all in horses. We have to make choices and live a more moderate life for the sake of each other and ourselves, like adults.
Then Bluey complained about taking away TV's and Hummers. It had nothing to do with D's being better people than R's
Tell you what. Give me a list of what Obama's policies are that you don't agree with. 1, 2, 3....
Hang on to your TV...they're coming for them. :)
In fact, W received more popular votes in 2004 than Obama did in 2012. 3,000,000 million more in fact.
Obama dominated nothing. The electoral college skews the vote. If you want to look at the electoral college, in 2008 Obama got 363 electoral votes, this election 303.
What saved Obama was that his highly effective negative campaign that demonized Romney to the electorate.
What we are going to get his four more years that look like the past four because Obama is a lame duck president with zero political capital.
Additionally, FL's 29 electoral votes have not yet been assigned, but appear likely to go to Obama as of right now. Once the electoral votes are assigned, the electoral votes will either be: Obama: 332; Romney: 206, OR Obama: 303; Romney 235.
I will note that the two possible electoral vote scenarios identified above are precisely the two most likely electoral vote allocations predicted by the Princeton Election Consortium.
