Quoting The (super kinky) Master:" Its not that ... the main problem I've had in these type of debates is that sure I'm happy to admit ... [snip!] ... take the piss out of me and insult my country ... as if thinking this is going to somehow change my opinion on Americans."
If you're meaning me, I wasn't taking the piss out of you or insulting your country. And if you took my joking about the location of countries as an insult or making fun of you, I deeply apologize. And I certainly did NOT jump on the bandwagon of whatever talk that was about how everyone relies on America when they're in trouble.
I personally hate a lot about the way things are headed in this country, and I would be happy to give you a list. But basically, one of the main reasons that I like Mitt Romney over Obama is that Romney has a plan, laid out, where everyone can see it. He's told everyone of this plan, to start our country on the road to recovery. In a sense, it's like Obama just cut a hole in the side of Santa's gift sack (the sack being the money our government "has" to spend) and all this money just came pouring out all over the place, and now when we need the money in the sack to spend on necessities, there is none. And anytime you put more money in the sack, the gaping hole in the side causes it to just leak out again. Romney has plans to plug up this hole.
People can bash Romney's personal beliefs on abortion all day long, but at the end of the day, Romney isn't anymore powerful than Obama. They'll hold the exact same office, same position, same everything. So if Obama is "just one guy who can't be held responsible for getting jobs bills passed," then what makes anyone think that Romney has the power to come in and just take women's rights away? And people can post quote after quote after quote all day long about what this Republican said versus that Republican and blah blah blah, but honestly, if I'm entitled to my opinion and you're entitled to yours, then why shouldn't they be entitled to theirs? It doesn't suddenly mean that that ONE person's opinion will cause the law to change instantly. There is still a due process that ALL laws have to go through, and I think people would do well to remember that when looking at these candidates and their platforms. They would also do well to look at the things the president HAS done and what he IS capable of doing in the future. We have a checks and balance system in place for a reason. So that no one branch has all the power. Executive included.
