And perhaps those of you in favor of Romney could reconcile this.

Good job being jingoistic America. And so worried when the defense budget far outstrips China.

Good job also makin bipartisanship sound like witchcraft.

Also, anyone who thinks tax cuts alone will solve the system has got to relearn arithmetic. And last in this series of simple sentences, Obama already has reduced taxes for the vast majority of people.

Who cares for a few jobs when your country is going down the gutter?

Don't war time economies usually bring a country's economic status out of the gutter? ...or at least historically speaking isn't that what has brought the US out of the gutter several times before?

@_@ war is the answer to all of the world's problems! which of the possible presidents are most likely to start a war?

that was a joke

Here's a stupid scenario:
China demands the US to pay everything back now or they start a war. Meanwhile they ally with Russia, North Korea, Japan, Germany and Iran.
Then China expel the business ******** who moved their factories there, confiscate all their material and use all their technologies that they've already copied. Then they disable the Canadians and Americans infrastructures. And BTW, Romney is the new president.
:O

The question is What do we do now?

Well...I need to put on a true American mindset here...

Guess it is time we test out how well our nukes are

(this is not my true belief...in case anyone would hope to make a debate with me on it or something of that effect)

Historically maybe.. but hasn't the latest wars definitely harmed the US economy? And I also thought they don't have the economic capacity to start another full-on war. Well maybe the US could turn it to their advantage if they were able to mobilize the population again as they did in the world wars, though with the current comfort-habituated society I don't see that happening.

Though don't they say that a successful war will get you reelected? XD

Japan has an alliance treaty with America. Germany is part of NATO. Iran is dealing with a massive economic problem and sanctions. North Korea is starving and will be reined in by China.

China requires foreign investment and capital and expertise. Rubbish the nonsensical notion that China can run it's plants without foreign aid. Large numbers of it's SOEs and companies are foreign owned or managed. If China demands all it's money back now, it would be a) Silly, since bonds have return dates and b) economic suicide since America has no money now. Terminating such a symbiotic relationship now will plunge China's economy which is still largely export driven into a quagmire.

Yes, I would say it's a pretty **** stupid an impossible scenario. Seriously America? You guys need China, yet paint it in such a fashion? Let me show this to my Chinese friends. We all need a laugh anyway.

I'm not going to pretend i'm a knowledge wizard in terms of American politics or the presidential campaign, however i did have an interesting conversation with my American aunt the other night.

She asked if I was an American citizen who would i vote for. My answer was Obama and when challenged the only response i could come up with is because he's likeable and Romneys an idiot. She said she supporting Romney for various reasons. We then watched the news here in Ireland together and she said "Even this is making me want to change my vote". You see apparently our news is showing Obama in the perfect light and making a fool out of Romney.

Maybe because they tend to be that way? I just heard today that unemployment in America is at it's lowest point since Obama got elected. Still republicans think that Obama is killing jobs and only Romney can help. Romney on the other side is as malleable as needed to get votes and hasn't really presented any plans on how to actually solve the things he is criticising Obama for.

Though there's also surely a certain bias towards Obama in Europe, not only the European citizens would vote Obama but the governments, I'm pretty sure, would be more favorable to Obama, to their own advantage. So, yes, let's keep alert, but I still think that Obama is rightfully depicted as the better candidate.
