I’m British, so of course voting in your election can’t be an option for me … and as in real life, I’m not going to try to add anything to this poll, either. It’s surely not my place to.
But I have an observation to offer.
Just how badly DO those of you on the Right want Obama ousted from power, anyway ?
Whatever might or might not be said here about the merits of the choices on offer, there’s one reality that a poll like this starkly illustrates … the splitting of an effective anti-Obama vote to the point where opposition votes can become too fragmented to have any ultimately worthwhile effect.
For anyone interested … I’ve the utmost sympathy with those who balk at voting for Romney, and I believe, as many of you do, that he’s far from the full-blooded Conservative figure that’s really needed to get the US back on track. But, then … you clearly risk letting Obama in by default.
I’ve a plea to offer. PLEASE don’t allow this ! Getting proper Conservatism back into its rightful place in American life may prove to be a multi-stage affair, where you reach your goal by degrees, over time. Isn’t that better than allowing the fracturing of effective anti-Socialist voting to occur, and thus giving Obama the last laugh ??
Anyway, I’ve had my say, and as a non-American I feel uncomfortable about ‘interfering’ in threads like this. I’m just so passionately driven to NOT want your Left wing to triumph AGAIN !
