Since the current Administration has been in office in the United States, do you feel comfortable with how you voted in the last Presidential election?

I am a very political person, but am very respectful of the political beliefs of others. Many, many Americans were once gung-ho about the current Administration, but now that time has gone by, many feel let down and lied to, while others stand behind the belief that America is going to come out of things better than ever. I live in an area where it's extremely conservative, and all about God and guns, so I am wondering about the rest of the country. What is your opinion? How does the rest of America feel? Voting is private.

When it comes to prosecuting the war on terrorism - Obama has been fairly aggressive - I think much to the disappointment of many that voted for him. Other than that - like his predecessor he's done nothing more than spend more than we have. 1st we got the Bush prescription drug benefit - then the Obama care debacle.

Don't get me wrong benefits are great - we just don't have the income to pay for them - and I'm disinclined to pay more taxes. So we continue to play watch the rising deficits!

I vote on social issues only. I do not have a career in economy so I don't feel qualified to vote based on those issues - I think people like to PRETEND they understand business and economical issues better than they really do - so I just vote on the issues I understand best.

Basically, when I vote, I ask myself "How many people will this man's policies hurt?" And I mean ACTUALLY HURT - not minor inconvenience. How many people will die or become disabled or disowned or have their lives significantly altered for the worst based on these policies. That is how I determine who to vote for.

I have never been confident in politicians to begin with, and I know that no matter who I vote for, they're going to disappoint me on some fronts. But if their decisions would harm minorities and maintain the power dynamics that are already in place, it puts me off to say the absolute least.

"Basically, when I vote, I ask myself "How many people will this man's policies hurt?" - You know, that is a really good way of looking at things. Thanks for your perspective.

My foreign languages are limited to those of Arabic and Hispanic cultures. Perhaps a crash course of Mandarin is in order? LOL!

It's not voting for who you want. Our two party system doesn't let you vote for who you want. It forces you to vote against the other person. I did not want to vote for either of the two main candidates, but I felt one was worse than the other. I am not happy. But until we fix out voting infrastructure, we're screwed.

I did not vote for either on of those goons during the election.

As a woman I felt like there was and still is only one option for me regardless of how I feel about either's war policy or other concerns. With how big reproductive health is right now, I couldn't take a chance that Obama would not be there to veto all that crap.

I voted for Obama, and while he is not a perfect president, he is a whole hell of a lot better than Romney. That's my opinion.

It doesn't matter to me. I don't follow any of that.

I voted for Jill Stein because I was absolutely certain that Obama was going to win Massachusetts. I'm still happy about my decision. If I'd lived in a state where the outcome was more unlikely, I would have voted for Obama, I think, and felt okay with that.

I wish Obama had been more aggressive on health care, but I know politics is about lobbyists, so while I am disappointed, I am not surprised.

Whatever you might think of Obama, at least we don't have Bush or Palin in the hot seat.

try, this is the first time I've felt the need to disagree with you:


Palin... well, I'm glad she has no political power these days. Bush, on the other hand... Never lied to us/used the IRS to persecute opposition, or ignored MAJOR conflicts that directly affected American citizens abroad.


He catches a lot of flack for things going down in his last term, but I feel it should be noted that the second half of his last term was almost entirely controlled by a democratic Congress.

I don't feel either party is specifically to blame, but I don't think that it should all be dumped on single individuals either. They make decisions based on the information they are provided... and both have made/will make plenty more mistakes.

I don't believe we have much control of how things are being run.

i'm happy that obama won purely because the alternative would have been a grotesque mess. i don't support obama or this two party system or practically anything to do with u.s. government, it's a wreck.
there will likely never be a candidate who is "left-leaning" enough for me to wholly support because of how conservative the u.s. is as a nation.
and that aside, i'm not convinced a presidency is even close to what would be the best system either way.
