How about having a poll sometime near the election Big Mike? It could run like this:

who are you voting for?:

Obama

Romney

Ron Paul (fill in)

Other

would be interesting to see how the votes tally in the futures.io (formerly BMT) community..


another poll could be, who are you voting for your state senator? (local congressman?)

Republican

Democrat

Other

As I said before, and is perfectly evident over the past 2 days...the market and indices are a POOR metric for the health of our economy or the collective prosperity of Americans. A BETTER metric is REAL GDP (indexed for inflation) (even though I think the inflation rates are suspect).

US Real GDP by Month

As I've said, the economy was already on the upswing when Clinton took office and was already stalling/fading when he left.

Indeed. And the markets have even cheered high unemployment and other economic numbers -- up to a point -- when they seemed to point to more QE, which has little to do with creating jobs. As far as Bill, he was in the sweet spot of economic growth and the internet stuff, at the right time, with no seriously bad global stuff happening. Just as Obama caught a very toxic hand-off, Clinton was able to put it on cruise control.

Hope is fleeting, change is scary. The last 4 years is proof of that. Let's hope for our children's sake it goes the other way.

Last night at the DNC all I heard is about how much they cared about me. They understood me. They loved me. This confuses me a little. For the last 3 1/2 years all I have heard from the DNC is how I am racist, terrorist, SOB, and host of other derogatory terms and accusations. So which is it? do they care for me or do they hate me? I am confused.

To be completely honest with all of you, I am not very knowledgable on all the details of politics and don't want to be. I think it would be very difficult to know all the details of every aspect of what goes on in Washington without being part of it. None of us knows what goes on behind closed doors. We don't know what is agreed to, or decided upon. Can we trust what is reported to us? Do we get the entire story? When some legislation is passed do they tell us that it also inludes some favor for someone on page 5000? Sometime yes and sometimes no? I believe for most of us it comes down to a few core issues or beliefs. That's why it's almost impossible to convince someone to change sides. For example, if you are anti-abortion you will probably vote as a republican. If you feel abortion should be legal you vote Dem. If you don't like public assistance type programs you vote Rep, if you are for them you vote Dem. if you feel corporation deserve special benefits or tax breaks etc then I guess you vote Rep. If you feel corporations should pay a fair wage then Dem. ofcourse there are the independents etc. but I think for most it is a few key issues that decides it for most. Then there are topics like the middle East.. How do you deal with Isreal? Well, if you want the Jewish vote you side with Isreal, but many feel that they took the land they walk on and won't co-exist with anyone. I have no idea what is right or wrong regarding that topic. Who does? I think it depends who you ask.

When it comes to the he said she said stuff who do you believe? Does Romney really want tax cuts for the wealthy? I don't know, does he? If its not true then don't say it, but if it is true I would ask why.

Is Social Security an entitlement? Well, they've been taking money out of my checks for 34 years, so I think I'm entitled to that money. I would have preferred they didnt take it and let me use it, but if you're gonna take it for my future you better be prepared to give it back.

Abortion. All arguments aside it comes down to this for me. Nobody or government should be able to tell anyone what they can and cannot do to their body.

When asked about how Romney intends to balance the budget did he really say ...get back to me on that after the election? I don't know, did he? If he did shouldn't he really give an idea of his plan? Doesn't it at least make you say huh? In all fairness is Obama's plan valid? Will it work? Has he given details? Even if he has we don't know if it will work.

So, it comes down to a few core things and how I feel about each person. For me that's O.
