    Nov 2 2012: none of them ın my opinion you should ask this question what changes? OBAMA was indicated as a hero but we see realities there is not change ... only actors changing problem is very deep ... people are unconscious it is sure sign of corruption firstly american society should be recognize around them ...life is not only breathing
    • Nov 2 2012: Obama has made a very small dent inside American society, don't forget he was handed a terrible economy by Bush

        Nov 2 2012: Four years at the helm of the Executive branch of the country and no visible improvement? In fact, there is continuing deterioration. Obama has more power than any person on Earth and he has done what with it?. . ."not much" except socialized medicine, which will probably not survive, and failed stimulus programs. At what point do we stop blaming the previous administration and pull the country out of the supposed "dive" it was in when he took over? If it takes four years for him to accomplish "not much", what will he do for the next four years. . . completely reverse his own failed policies? Vote for Romney!
        • Nov 2 2012: I refuse to vote for Romney due to his lack of thought given to medicare dependents and disabled citizens, as I am one myself.

        Nov 2 2012: "He has made a very small dent. . . " You are a treasure trove of campaign slogans for Obama. This one is almost as good as " He hasn't done much for the country." Keep them coming Mr. Johnson you are winning people over in droves.

          Nov 2 2012: You seem to be twisting another person's statements to try to support your argument again Edward.

          Nov 2 2012: I don't think anyone could turn it around in 4 years but i think there is the open source movement on the horizon as well as the Slow movement to counteract the instant answer system prevalent in this online centric world. In the next ten years we might be faced with a entirely new system that might leave us old types off to the left.

        Nov 2 2012: I do not know what Romney has said about Medicare and the disabled. If you will share that information upon which you are making your decision I will be grateful. Perhaps you can provide a link, and please, I beg you, don't tell me I should have watched the debates. Seriously, no heated argument intended, upon what cited basis are you doing all this name calling? Be specific please. Let's cool-off and act grown up.

          Nov 2 2012: Yes...excellent idea!
        • Nov 2 2012: Here:
          It states that Romney would have higher deductibles in medical insurance plans. People like me who have many health issues cannot afford high deductibles. The deductible I have now is high enough as it is. Luckily under Obamacare I am covered under my parent's BCBS insurance until I am 26 being disabled and unemployed, Obamacare is a Godsend and I would be a fool to vote for Romney, Also if you're up for a bit of light reading read this: http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml It is a set of laws set forth by the UN which are to be followed otherwise punishable by international law. I'm sure Romney breaks a few. Especially Art. 19 when it comes to Abortion. breaking Art. 19 also breaks Art. 30
