If I was old enough to vote, it would be for Obama, he basically got handed one of the worst states economically america has ever been in and he has managed to make some decent headway on getting the country on the right track. I am not sure how people expected him to magically make the USA a superpower again in just four years.

Plus the GOP seems to be wishy washy so far, going from candidate to candidate trying to find someone that could really win the election, and so far, I really dont see any impressive candidates. Just happy Sarah Palin is out of there.

I should do the same thing with Vermin Supreme.

I have added two third party candidates: Gary Johnson, who was the Governor of New Mexico and Vermin Supreme who looks like some politcal hobo.

I voted for Obama in '08 but I won't vote for him this time.  He's a liar and a turd.  But all these candidates are except for Ron Paul.  I don't believe that it matters who you vote for.  I believe that the politicians are just actors, making the people think that their opinions matter.  The political campaigns are just stage shows to keep the commoners divided and fighting amongst themselves.

Politician ;)

It's a fact all politician's are actor's, otherwise who in their sane mind would vote for any of these shysters?

"One of the common failings among honorable people is a failure to appreciate how throughly dishonorable some other people can be, and dangerous it is to trust them." - Thomas Sowell

"The only purpose of a government is to protect a man's rights, which means: To protect him from physical violence. A proper government is only a policeman, an agent of man's self-defense, and, as such, may resort to force only against those who start the use of force. The only proper functions of a guvernment are: The police, to protect you from criminals; the army, to protect you from foreign invaders; and the courts, to protect your property and contracts from breach or fraud from others, to settle disputs by rational rules, according to objective laws." -John Galt in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged [1957]
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence;it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."  -George Washington

I voted for Ron Paul and have given money (not enough) to his campaign, but the media has nothing but derision for him and so the masses who get their political news from snl and the daily show have dismissed him. To most people in the US, anything pre-JFK is like dinosaur days, so any mention of the Constitution is confusing for them. Plus, he would upset both parties' gravy trains. Instead, the weak field is led by this cycle's McCain, Mitt Romney, a finger-in-the-wind empty suit. If the media seems curiously unwilling to attack Romney before he's nominated rest assured that he is the chosen lamb. They had it made last time, McCain shot himself in the foot any time he threatened to move ahead. Well now I've bummed myself out!  :'( Sometimes I miss the days when I kept up with sports every day, rather than politics.  :o

Paul is the only reasonable one out of the bunch. He's the only one I'd even consider voting for.

The silence around Ron Paul has been ear deafening almost from the start. Only of late is he drawing some exposure in the media and probably just because they can't keep ignoring him. If he would have had the same spotlights that some lightweights like Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry unjustly were given, the story might be a little different now.

The South voted for a fossile (Gingrich) that could be a character straight out of a novel by Dickens. Sad to say that's hardly a surprise. What did this guy ever say to make you believe for a second that he sticks up for the common guy? Are there that many people who think it's an appealing idea to lift up the prohibition on child labor? Or do they just vote for anyone that their local pastor advices them to vote for?

Terribly frightening all this.

I can't believe they voted Gingrich. There is no one on earth that looks or sounds less presidential. I burst into laughter any time I see him, but that might be Stephen Colbert's fault :D
