Red or Blue?

Red or Blue?

We have had a number of purchaser polls asking about our age, our demographics, our location, etc. I have been quite curious about our politics, but I worried that a controversial subject like politics (or religion?) might be unwelcome. However, a couple of threads have now broken the ice by discussing the presidential debates and government tax policies. And we are, after all, entering the Silly Season. So I thought I'd ask: are you a tree-hugging liberal, a fat-cat conservative, or a wishy-washy independent? Do you favor Obama, Romney, or someone else? Please keep the commentary and argument to a minimum. I'm really just trying to get an idea of how we compare to the population at large. Non-US purchasers are welcome to vote.

I'll start:

I'm a Democrat favoring Obama.

Every embassy in a danger zone has Marine guards. Except Libya. The men who were killed were there by accident, on other business, and went in to the rescue against orders.

The stench will not wash off, this time.

ak-tually55 nice link! I was wondering about that one

I'm violating my own rule, but the Benghazi attack was on a consulate, not an embassy. I don't know what the security policy is for consulates in a danger zone.

If you want to see that EV electric infrastructure, And get off the oil company's tread-mill, you better vote for the blue guy that brung you this far. Remember that Romney braggs that the Energy loan to Tesla was a waste.

Ironically, Tesla applied for the loan during the Bush Administration.

Let's say that the candidate you are supporting belongs to the other party ... So, let's assume that Obama is a Rep and Romney is a Dem. Assume that this is a Rep presidency and a Dem is challenging it.

No, really, really, really picture it.

Would you still be holding the same views about the person, the state of the country, the consulate attack? Would your support for/arguments against Pres. Obama be the same or would they waver?

Be honest in your answer. If you are honest and can see beyond red or blue, then that's a good thing.

The anti-science, anti-education, anti-women, pro-superstition stance that the one party is taking is enough to prevent me from ever voting that way. I really don't believe that humanity can survive a new dark age. (The world will be just fine). What we need are more visionaries like Elon Musk and fewer hucksters.
