Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.

I find voting pointless because we have a choice between a liberal out-of-touch elitist and a conservative out-of-touch elitist.


I don't know if you've noticed this, but normal people only care about their own good as well.

And the rule is, if you don't vote, you can't complain.

And what about criminals? You think there just going to obey these rules?

And no outlawing guns won't make them harder for criminals to obtain since 90% acquire them illegally anyhow.

Its funny...

People are convinced that another civil war is going to happen in the U.S. All the signs are there they say. Then i look at the rest of the world and see how they have it and what drives them to either civil war or a complete turn on there government.Yes, things could be better, but were not even close to what some of these countries are going through. Half of the time i think its the people that just want an excuse to fight.

"Boo hoo :sad: I bought a $50K suburban that gets 10 miles to the gallon which sole purpose is to transport my 1 kid to school. I can't afford to fill it with gas and its that damn Barack Obama fault!! Lets grab our guns, impeach him and start a civil war to get our fine country back on track!! Yee Haw!!"
Or...

" :sad: I went to school and spent $40K on tuition and they won't give me that Vice President job which pays $100K starting pay. Experience? Who needs experience! I went to school and simulated my experience! That's good enough. How dare they want me to prove myself! So instead of accepting that job in the mail room, I'm going to sit outside of city hall and protest for weeks on end while my bills continue to pile on!" Damn you congress! This is all your fault!!"

Yes, these are sound reasons to want to reform our great nation! :BANG_HEAD:

Well, this thread degenerated quickly.

On the topic of OP's suggestion,
I think that's a terrible idea. Regardless of whether someone is an atheist, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or any homosexual variation of those listed, we are all Americans. Will everyone ever get along? no, but capitalizing upon differences will never make this country work together.

That's what I don't like about politicians on both sides: they constantly point out differences and campaign on who they will fight instead of campaigning on what they will do. A reasonable debate between two opposing politicians over the bills they want to pass is fine and good, but one man verbally attacking another man and their family over an election is horrible.

I could list my opinions here, but it would just start an even bigger flame war.

So...the United States splitting into two separate nations based on politics because each side believes it will be happier is going to kill the chances of civil war?
Does anyone remember what happened the last time something not unlike this occurred in the US?

Anyway, like others have said, it's not as bad as people say. People cry bloody hell over how we're going to be blown up by North Korea or invaded by China or we're all going to be forced to speak Spanish or Mexico is going to take back the land they lost and we're all going to die, but if you vote for only (insert political party here) you are voting for the people who truly care about YOU, yes you typical American, so all of these evil things can be avoided and the US will be returned to its former glory, and we'll all live happily ever after. If you're friends disagree tell them they're wrong and Un-American and call them communists.
In reality we're all Americans; United We Stand. But, like the humans we are, we'd like to feel like we're better or more right than the other guy by taking sides. And believe it or not, we are occasionally all for ourselves over everyone else, and ALL of us do it, not just politicians. We're all different and diverse, and that's a good thing.
On politics, I agree with Rodimus Prime. I consider myself moderate. I'll switch between liberal and conservative anytime I want; it doesn't invalidate my opinions. I'll vote for whoever I think is the best candidate without parties as an object. I hate it when people say "No seriously, are you a Democrat or a Republican?" Like it really matters. Let's agree we both love America and keep it a nice place to live.
Please note: If you think I may be joking, I probably am.
