Don't know enough about the man to comment on whether it's a good or bad thing for America.

Where do you live Spin ? Not down to city, but country. (because of 'You are used to idiots running your nation')

I doubt it very much ...can't see him beating the appalling Obama , unfortunately.

Obama has been found out - an empty vessel who attended a couple of speech delivery courses and found himself hopelessly out of his depth running a country that should be number one in the world but is in danger of becoming another state-run, European style basket case. Romney is not perfect but if I was betting man, with the campaign barely underway and an economy going backwards, I would give Romney a 50-60% chance of beating Obama in November, albeit after a close and dirty campaign.

So guys, back to the good old Republican days of ripping off the poor, no regulation of financial institutions and more war.

I hope Obama slaughters Romney and screws the smug rich of America into the ground on his second term.

Romney is a hypocrite, telling American News TV audiences that he didn't think Britain could run the Olympics, and the next day telling the BBC how impressed he was with the organisation. The man's a moron (sorry Mormon) and shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the leavers of world power.

Did you read my post Kod? I didn't keep a copy, is it that I called him the son of a Mexican immigrant? This is a statement of fact. Could it be that his sister in law, as a director of a major healthcare company was involved last year in a lawsuit for discriminating against American workers and outsourcing jobs to India?

Could it be that I called him a mormon moron, or that I called his missus a "Stepford Wife"? Could it be that I mentioned the fact that "corporations are people too", and as such seem to have more votes than everyone else? Could it be that Amazon support Mitt Romney and won't have a word said against Corporations, especially those who "evoid" paying their morally due taxes?

I did manage to catch it before it went - I don't know what made the mods delete it though.
No swearing, nothing particularly offensive. Unless they view 'moron Mormon' as deletable ?? o.O
I would've copied it if I had any thought it would be gone lol

edit - that's what I get for taking so long to type, you say it first =D

Actually I used the phrase from Lionel's earlier post. Obama may not be the person we all thought he was going to be, but really, what chance does he have with the REAL power still resting with the Republicans, it always has, and always will........unless ofcourse, Obama is planning great things for his second term. As regards the economy, it's right wing European technocrats that have got us in this never ending spiral of debt, austerity doesn't work, it's clear, it might if everyone contributed, unemployment causes more and more debt. Europe has to stop, and stop now. Hopefully, France's economy will improve with a socialist way forward, and much higher taxes on the rich, then the rest of Europe will, if there is a Europe left, have to follow it's lead, but it might be far too late by then?

This sounds about right.

Most of our politicians in the US are the way you described.
Ron Paul was a notable "tell it like it is" exception, but he wasn't young and pretty enough for mass consumption during this Republican primary season.

Charlieost-

Obama talks out both sides of his mouth. He would have us believe that he was for the regular "everyman"... but it turns out he bows at the feet of the bankers... just like Republicans. What my country needs is a Libertarian president. Ron Paul would have been great. Gary Johnson would be good, but the big political donations go to those in the entrenched mainstream two party duopoly... Republican or Democrat.

Simon, <<spin.....relax....rest.....let calmness prevail....>>

Wise words. And he's a lucky lad, in other circumstances you would have charged him several hundred.

I think your post adds to the discussion.

Timothy,

<<Ron Paul>>

And he's a windbag, he needs a script writer.

'What my country needs is a Libertarian president'

More deregulation of the economy with no accountability on the part of bankers or big business - Just what we need at the moment!

The Libertarian platform in the US is simply "fiscal conservatism in government spending and social tolerance and more civil liberties in the lives of citizens"

Nothing in there about deregulating the evil banks.
- Stop sending troops overseas to fight other people's battles
- Stop unlimited government spending
- Stay out of the lives of citizens who aren't bothering anyone...
- IE... Stop arresting people for smoking marijuana

Mr B Tonks says:
Timothy,

Surely less state intervention will mean the rich grow richer at the expense of the poorest,
Everytime a responsible government steps back from playing a major role in a nations operation and infrastructure a free for all begins with the bankers and financial institutions in the City of London being an extreme example of the accumalation of wealth and greed that results from minimal state control.
I agree with the US not sending troops to invade other countries in order to gain resources and protect strategic interests though as well as wasting resources on banning soft drugs.
