Smile | :) The facts say otherwise. I can't vote in your election but like much of the world I'm profoundly affected by it and I don't think it would be an exxageration to say that many outside the U.S. probably keep more up to date with the news and the policies of the candidates than a pretty high percentage inside the U.S. so I think an informed rebuttal might not be out of line here.

I am fervently anti socialist but I think you're way off base here. The republicans have treated the cream of corporate america like a socialist state for 8 years and done little for the small business owner and average person that the vast majority of U.S. people here would fall into. I think the U.S. would benefit greatly under a democratic regime for a couple of terms and the republicans (at least the current ones) have shown no fiscal responsibility whatsoever and taxed and spent far more freely than most left leaning politicians would even think is wise.

I can't vote in your election but if I could I'd be looking for a candidate who was fiscally conservative and socially liberal and honestly I think the democrats and Obama fit the bill.

Consider the state of the economy in general under the last Democrat and Republican regimes and it's pretty clear which one is better for business and the average person and the rest of us around the world who, after all, have provided the customers that drive the wealth of the U.S.
