What's the latest feeling int he US? Are they really stupid enough to gift back the White House to the mob which gave them the GFC in the first place?

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
Haha, then it's really just an accident of history that you became a Superpower, isn't it?
Haha. Well the conditions that made us a superpower were very libertarian tbf...not so good for the majority of population but good for industrial development.
In any case, some people think the way to fix the defecits and the debt is to have massive tax cuts (srsly). I don't think there's any reasonable argument you can make to that group.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Haha yea. Though I don't see Obama winning anymore. The economy won't be good enough.
still leads Romney in most of the swing states.
This is going to be a long, nasty, and competitive race. Neither party can feel confident about winning or losing at this stage.
You mean Romney and the religious extremists who make up the current Republican Party are actually a serious prospect?
America is becoming a parody of itself.
The Democrats are already a right wing party though.
The Republicans in the UK, Aus, NZ, Canada etc would get 2% of the vote and a pat on the head.
-France experienced a definite rightward shift in the last decade. Even Sarkozy's UMP is a center-right party.
-The center-right CDU/CSU won in Germany.
-The Torries won the most seats in the 2010 UK general elections.
-The center-right New Democracy party just won the Greece elections.
-Benjamin Neanyahu's right-wing Likud party is in control of Israel.
-The right-wing N-VA won a plurality in Belgium.
-The right-wing People's Party is in control in Spain.
-John Howard was the PM of Australia just 4 years ago.
Those are just a few examples. Again, I'm conceding that "right-wing" in America means something different from right-wing in Europe, Asia, or Australia. However, I think there is no doubt that the right has enjoyed a resurgence in the last decade world-wide.
