I know your age, and I'm assuming silverado boy is about your age or slightly younger (but not nearly as smart and educated. If you honestly feel this way I am very concerned about our countries future leaders. I think you are a lot smarter than this statement! Yes, you're correct substantial change isn't coming, but the fact that you agreed with silveradopeboy worries me.

I think that statement reads different than what I intended. Of course it matters who is elected to lead our nation, my point is simply that people are going to expect substantial change over night based solely on a new president and it doesn't work that way.

This part I agree with. I just don't like silveradopeboy's useless attitude of thinking writing in his name is going to change anything.

Change will be small, but if we don't vote in the right direction the change will not ever happen.

Say we vote for Romeny, and he begins to make progress, then we vote for more people in senate and congress who also make some progress, etc. Yeah its gonna take time, but if we just give up and write our own names in we're doomed.

It is better than not voting. Why would I vote for somebody who I do not support? Why would I vote for someone that I do not think will make a difference. Why would I vote for someone that is not right to be president? Just because he is not Obama? Just because he is a republican? I dont vote based on party, Mitt still has a chance to win me over and EARN my vote. Im not going to just vote for him because he is a .

We are in deep do do because of spending. This administration is spending more than it takes in per year. They are giving billions of tax dollars to special interest groups and foreign countries.
Anybody will be better than this extremely liberal president.
By writing in your own name, you may as well put obama's name then, because any other name the Mitt will be giving it to obama.
We cannot afford another 4 years of hope and change.

Change direction is exactly what we need to do. Think of it as a rudder on a ship turning away from socializm which is the way obama has steered this country.
Mitt may not be as conservative as I would like but he is by far better than the direction Obama is taking us.

Mostly out of Iraq.
A plan to get us out of Afghanistan.
Not overly involved in any other countries civil war.
Economy recovering.
Unemployment falling.
American Auto companies still in business and once again profitable.
A health care plan that, while not perfect, addresses some of the issues that the right wishes to ignore.
Less hatred toward American world wide.
Deporting more illegal immigrants that ever before.
Fewer Illegals coming in.

Well your reading comprehension sucks. I didn't say you were uneducated. I said you were not as educated as ajmorell, and I was correct.

Not voting, and writing in your name are the same thing. If you want to waste your vote and you think you've done something with it that's great, but you should at the VERY least consider voting for something that may make a difference. (this includes third party voting, at least if voting for an independant enough people do so then that could cause change as that mindset could slowly gain momentum)

it would seem to me that you have a whole lot to learn, you are a child, who thinks like a spoiled child. your robot that you designed is not impressive, as I assume it was a childs high school project

Unlikely. I'm not saying there won't be any change but it won't happen that fast. People thought the same thing when Bush left office

What was happening to our economy before Bush left office could not recover quickly. We were heading for a ression which usually takes about 18 months to rebound from that. With that being said we should be well on our way to the road of recovery but are not because of the failed economic policies of Obama.
When another(Mitt) president gets in you will see the economy get better rather fast. People will have confidence to invest in the economy and jobs will be more avialable than they are now.

Other than your hatred for Obama, what are your basing this on? I'm not saying mittens can't/won't turn things around but I'm more of a "see it to believe it" type of guy when it comes to politicians

I don't hate Obama. I don't like what he is doing to this country and the direction he is taking us.
As for seeing to believe it you need to open your eyes and watch what is happening to our economy, the debt he has accumilated, his immigration policy as far as securing the border and his inability to lead this country to recovery instead of bringing it to depression.

I'm not saying I don't believe it or that I'm oblivious to what is happening. I don't like him either. I'm saying I'll believe mittens is our "savior" when he undoes all the shit Obama's done.

We need to look at Mitt's past preformance. He is a conservative guy but he will also lean to the left towards the independent voter. He will be going after the conserative voter that voted for Obama last time. We need to hold Mitt to his promises while he is campaining. We the people have been to quiet the past 30, 40 years thinking the people we voted will do the right thing and look were that has gotten us.
So many people don't vote, thinking what will my vote do and so on. I think that is a defeatist attitude. If we want things to change in washington then we all need to make our voices heard.
I'm not saying Mitt is a savior of any kind but he would be better than who is in charge now.

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." Abraham Lincoln.

Interesting how Lincoln saw what would happen and people today can't see it as it's happening.
