    And again, the world will be witness tonight to watching a nation split dead center. Maybe I'm naive, maybe I'm not politically well-wrought, but what I've been witnessing the past six months was such a pile of delusional garbage where ignorant people trample all over hard-working people's civil rights and accuse each other of crimes worse than those of the governments of Lybia, Syria and Iran together. Ok, that was a little harsh, but hey, you've got Ken doll vs. Ng'Baba. Put them up on America's Got Talent and people will actually give a **** and are allowed to vote!

    If Romney wins, Europe and the rest of the world will be sitting on the sidelines, patiently waiting to see just how the GOP manages to **** up the country just a little bit more again. Sure, Europe has its own problems but that's because they modeled their economy after the US - I hear Germany is already printing a few million Deutsch Marks "just in case".

    I mean, it's like watching a repeat of a train wreck in slow-motion; you know what's going to happen and you can scream and yell as much as you want, it's still going to happen.

    Obama may not be the best alternative to save the economy, but he's the only American politician I know so far where I believe him to have unbridled interest for anyone who didn't arrive in colonial America on the upper decks of the Mayflower. There was a pattern, it's time to alter it, Betsy Ross.

    No president can turn the economy around in 4 measly years, especially with the opposition blowing off any kind of suggestion. (Here's a thought: combine politics with sports - you have three strikes in congress and then you're out!) But when it comes to the leader of the free world, I think you should go with the guy who supports yours.

    I wonder how many Americans don't see the irony in that...

    Oh, and for those who still believe a bit of socialism is evil, I guess this rules out paying taxes, which pay for schools, roads and civil services. Or do you believe they all are gifts from the money fairy? You don't want to end up like Greece, now do you?

    I apologize for this little rant, I just needed to air my thoughts before the big hoopla ends.

    OBJECTIVE reality
    When the topic of Americans voting for Republicans comes up, I often consider about what Europe must think of us. I dare say you're not all that atypical. And all I can say is, when Reagan and Bush Jr. were elected, and all the times that one chamber or the other went to the GOP, quite a large number of us in America shared your feeling of helpless dread.

    BTW, my favorite part of your rant:

    Europe's debt issues are their own and this isn't a popularity contest. I thought it was proper when Harper told Europe to deal with their own issues when they came around with hat in hand. No one forced Europe on their path.

    I was in Berlin this past September. On a train ride from Berlin to Wolfsburg I was sitting next to this old lady, and we started talking about the US and politics.

    When I mentioned I was leaning for Obama in this election, she was ecstatic. Turns out she is a big fan of the President. :D

    The problem with America is that the political system they inherited from their forefathers does not work in todays world. The most likely result of the election is that Obama will win the Presidency and the Republicans will hold on to the house.

    Nothing will get done for another four years because the Republicans will block every attempt at change, just like they did for the last two years.
