You guys do realize this happens every four years right? 4 years ago everyone was getting wet over obama. And now they want him out. Now everyones getting wet over romney. And I'm sure they'll end up hating him too. It's the same everytime. Nothing ever changes.

If you ask me, we should abolish the presidency. It's a useless job.

And then Give Utter power to the Judiciary System and the Congressional System, which would be just as horrid, if not more horrid than it is now.

America needs more (Or less) Political parties. as a Bipartisan Nation of 300 Million, it's no mystery how Congress is Deadlocked at the moment.

Thing is, Congress already DOES do all the domestic work. All the president is good for basically is making treaties and throwing parties. It's like a popularity contest now. How has any president changed anyone's life anyway? Assuming you didn't join the army of course. That's the biggest thing they offer. Killing 18 year old in war. But for the average American, nothing has changed as a cause from the president. Again, the presidency is largely a popularity contest.

Also yeah.
Voting for Ron paul, Gary Johnson, Romney, or Obama, would not change a thing as it stands, mainly due to congressional cockblocking.

Well yeah.
That's sort of my point.
For the past few Decades, Presidency has been completely unimportant, (Besides the whole Charm and Face of the nation Aspect, ie: Reagan and Gorbichev) But Domestically speaking, Presidency is illegal. Imo, it's pointless to be able to guide the troops without the ability to declare war... though bush did declare war on "Terror"

Honestly. Congress needs to reform to a more Parliamentary Directly Democratic System, instead of Career Representative Politicians who care more about their salary than they do America.

In all fairness I can see what he's saying; the 1% or whatever it is don't pay income tax because a majority of their earnings are capital gains. The Rothchilds family for example has enough money to clear America of their debt completely, and still be rich; yet they pay not a cent of income tax.

Ten or fifteen.

America didn't do **** when it came to National Healthcare. However, Most of our Economic problems come from CEOs Outsourcing Jobs to foreign nations, and America reforming to a Service-State instead of a Manufacturing State.

A Nation with three hundred Million People cannot last long as a Service state.

I ******* love Arguing about Politics, however I do support Mitt Romney.
He does make a point about Welfare, being that its one of the Major Burdens on United States' Tax Payers.

Also Teenagers don't pay Income Tax, being that most of the time they're payed off books, depending on the state.

You Silly kids, you have no idea how good you have it tbh.
Even having a job is good. I'm a ******* Nineteen year old Immigrant from Former Communist Yugoslavia, I work in a Diner as a waiter, and my pay varies depending on how much work I do.

I can tell you bros Four things, first hand.
1. Communism is bad, and always be bad.
2. Wall Street Protesters are absolutely ******* retarded (For the most part)
3. Tax is necessary, I'd willingly pay half my salary if it meant better medical care.
4. Welfare is badly organized at the moment, too many Americans live off it, instead of actively look for jobs.

Honestly, people can say what they will about which politician, but I guess that's the point of a Democracy.
Vote for whom you support the most.

Romney's got my vote, sorry libys.

Instead of forking up so much money in taxes for medicare? Why not get the gov't out and let capitalism actually work for the free market. The gov't throwing money into the free market is what has caused medical fees to reach a ridiculously high and intolerable expense. Using taxes for a means of medicare brings about social healthcare. Social healthcare may work, but it sucks. Ask anyone who lives with it and has had a moderate injury. Yes, the state will pay for your medical fees but you have to it on their terms, see their doctors, and deal with their decided care. In this kind of environment there is no competition to provide better care and a general lack of supply to meet the social needs of a nation to provide sufficient care.

You're also kind of ass backwards in believing that there's too much welfare but not enough healthcare. It's one way or the other. You neo-conservatives tend to grow war and power hungry. Don't even resemble what a true conservative is. Your stance is not that very different from librals. Look at yourselves before you point fingers and call out others.

I, personally, am a true conservative. I believe that war interventionism is a piss-poor means of providing national security and is an abundant expense that cripples our economy. I believe that a gov't that can provide people with root liberties is also a gov't that can control its people. I also believe that the people should not fear their gov't. Right now, in the U.S., people are fearful as to what will happen to our nation, our constitution, and how soon it will be before we bury ourselves so deep in **** we can't pull ourselves out.

I'm not Neo-Conservative, Liberal, or anything really.

I'm more of a Socialist with Some Traditional Values.
Honestly. It depends on how you view Morality, should the Government Support its citizens, or leave them to fend for themselves?

That last Paragraph, I agree with completely, however, it may seem liberal, but I figure it may be too late for America, but it doesn't mean we cannot minimize the Damages.

Also. About Welfare. I support a Temporary System, with Moderation, not how it is now, in the united States.

And Honestly, National Healthcare isn't bad, but a large sum of the United States' Income comes from Health Insurance, and various Medical Research Institutes, so that's sort of where the problem comes in. America was fine way back when, I suppose, honestly it wasn't broken Either. Co-Pay was like. Ten Dollars, insurance covered the rest, and in turn, you paid your monthly/annual insurance. That's not a bad system for the united states.

I was also more so referring to better Medical Care for myself, by paying for it through tax, instead of to insurance companies, not national Healthcare. (Sorry. It's rather hard for me to think at like. Five in the morning.)

Honestly, when it comes to Healthcare, you get what you pay for. People who can afford the best doctors, get the best Doctors. People who can't, get Government Doctors.

You're also sort of misinterpreting my point of view, no offense bro.

Wow... look at all of the american kids bitching... you make $7.25 an hour AS A TEENAGER and still complain? I live in Eastern Europe and my mom makes like $1 an hour. I can't even get a job cos there aren't any. I just have to break my back growing potatoes and cutting fire wood. Most people here shower twice a week, and there's barely anyone under 20 who can afford to have a driver's license. I only got Internet cos I get wi-fi from a school nearby. My IQ is 149, and I get straight A's, btw. Please tell me how your first world life sucks more.

even if that is true, life in any country is compared to life in similar countries. America is first world and, therefore, the poor are expected to have most modern day conveniences. we have such abundant resources that the only thing that can really cause us to not be first world would be a direct result of bad leadership.

Anyway, growing potatoes and chopping wood isn't exactly back breaking, that shower thing and not being able to afford a drivers licence must suck, my school and my home both only recently got wi-fi, and congrats on the IQ. 149 is quite braggable.

The reason those people can't get better jobs is because Obama is so intent on sending jobs overseas to other **** hole countries, and paying **** tons of dollars to countries that don't deserve it. Oh wha wha wha let me call the whambulance, yeah our country bombed them a long time ago, get the **** over it, those countries are in better shape than america is in right now. And spending millions of dollars trying to repay ******* for what white ancestors did to black ancestors. get the **** over it, native americans were slaves here before ******* were, and they had all of their land taken away, only to have to move to a little area on a ******* reservation, thousands of miles away from their native birthplace. i ******* hate americans. if they invent time travel i am going to find christopher columbus and all the other ******* that "discovered" america and rape and murder them before their journey starts. **** you just **** you all.

As much as I love politics (in political debate now), I really dislike that funnyjunk seems to only pick one two of the parties. For so many people who post such large amounts of viable reasons and opinions, there is so little diversity. You hear "I don't belong to either side" a ton, but there are more than two sides. The United States just blindly sees two sides. What about the libertarians? The Green Party? There's a great website to go to, called isidewith dot com. It'll give you some other parties as well, and it will tell you what issues you agree on with who.

The answer: the elections are coming up. These political posts, are fairly recent... After the soon to come election, there will be a short after burn of political posts and comments. By the end of 2012, the posts will be done with and we'll be back to the usual MLP, bender, memes, and other trendy posts just for thumbs.
