43. Pro Candidate Obama

I happily voted for candidate Obama in '08 and I'm fully aware of the mess he inherited and the gridlock in Congress. I will likely vote for him again if for no other reason than to give him back one of my fellow voter's surpressed votes (inspired by another post).

But I really cannot stomach the things that he's done that have absolutely nothing to do with congressional gridlock such as dropping bombs on women and children in Pakistan. That's a commander-in-chief decision.

Clinton was great. He had us on track to pay the deficit off in 2012 but he also signed the law that repealed Glass-Steagall. He also signed NAFTA without any arm twisting. My understanding is that he's still proud of NAFTA.

We need 99% candidates that gather people who have the smarts to bring peace and economic stability. We ARE already slipping into a fascist state with the appearance of two parties.

If we can get paper ballots back and money out then maybe we can get our party back and start improving it.

Also, Congressional obstructionism didn't make the democratic party cave to adding "god" back into the platform at the convention.
