    On the gay marriage question there was an option asking if it should be a religious issue and not a government one. Why should a private contract between two individuals be an issue to anyone but those concerned?

    Well we know it is between Mitt and Obama.

    Obama economically has proven to be average at best, dominated by neo-classical thinking.
    Unfortunately, Mitt seems to be the same.

    I really can't seperate them. Both are 5/10.

    Agree. Not much point in including the candidates that are no longer in the race.

    I had a look at the quiz (love quizzes) but didn't feel qualified to respond to many of the issues which are domestic in nature, e.g. I don't actually know what Obamacare involves.

    I'd probably vote Democrat for just one reason: Romney seems more bellicose and I hate that.

    Unfortunately I have never taken the time to work out how the American political system works. Same goes for gridiron and baseball.
    I know I am a recalcitrant, not to worry, as long as I'm not a Gillard supporter.:D

    Sprawler: Don't you mean fortunately.
    In the home of the free the voting system is a disaster, remember the drama over the Shards and how they had to get in experts to measure if the hole had been punch cleanly or was a bit of paper still there . Jed bush had hand in making sure most Black could not vote.
    All a joke just like the Australian system.

    Thanks to the US media one would think there are only 2 running and history shows 70% of current Pres. get re-elected.

    With baseball, you use the bat to hit the ball as hard as you can. It also has other uses, such as hitting each other as hard as you can. With gridiron, you just hit each other as hard as you can.

    I lost interest after that.

    He has 25% of the vote now! He could do it. I have to admit that I agree with him that most of the Republican candidates are pitiful (also conflicted and in someone's pocket), he would be better than most of them. He might manage to get things done also. So let's hope he gets up.

    Trump running for President is the epitome of U.S.A. That is a movie type show where it is beyond reality but accepted by the masses. A reality show in reality.
