    Here it goes.. This is not a public poll, so your vote is secret, but you are welcome to comment and share your opinion on this matter if you like.. :smile:

    My vote will go to anybody but Obama. Just my opinion, I hold no malice toward those who think differently.

    No less of two evils between these two – I hope there is a third choice. :frown:

    Only my personal opinion, I don't expect anybody to share it , but I think Obama is a disaster. I wouldn't hit a dog in the A** with him..

    Our daily magazine said that its now certain that it will be Romney against Obama, so thats why I didn´t make "other" option available.. But you can name your own candidate on your comment if you wish!

    In North Carolina, it’s hard to get a third candidate on the ballot so maybe I’ll just show my contempt and write in Daffy Duck.

    They are basically the same, but if Romeny won we would have rename Obamacare to Romneycare....

    Vote for Ron Paul - he is for secession.

    Well, Michelle O. said this week:

    Michelle Obama: 'This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light'

    Michelle Obama made a remarkable claim when talking up her husband, President Barack Obama, at a campaign event earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.
    [​IMG]
    "I am so in," Michelle Obama said toward the end of her remarks. "I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light."
    The crowd of nearly 450 folks applauded as the first lady likened her husband to a Jesus-like figure.
    In the book of Matthew, we read, "the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up." (Matthew 4:16) The phrase is used to describe the words Jesus preached.
    In Micah, light, however, is a reference to God's words. "Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me," it says in Micah 7:8.
    Either way, in religious terms, light is used to denote the true path, presented either by God or a savior. Or by Barack Obama.


    She is a Princeton-Harvard grad after all so she must be right. I'll vote later after much thought.

    I think we should keep contemporary politics to a minimum, no need to add blood to our already muddied Civil War debates waters.
