    socioeconomic policies?

    I'm not qualified to answer this, since I'm Filipino. But I grew up in the States and studied grade school, high school and took my MA there. I think people are really in agreement with his policies. In my case, I don't agree with abortion which he endorses. However, I feel that it is a social and ethical issue that has to be resolved by families and their churches (if they go to church). I agree with Obamacare because in the Philippines, my generation didn't even have access to insurance. Now insurance is available for the younger generation. Many have died quite young because they couldn't afford medicines or hospital bills. America is very lucky.I wouldn't mind having an institutionalized system so that every Filipino has access to true health..If you are poor you line up for days at government hospitals for treatment. and are lucky if you get it. So I think Obamacare is good for people in the US, and I wish it would be instituted here. If my taxes go to abortions, I know my choice is to obey the law and pay taxes. But the decision to abort was somebody else's. In the Philippines abortion is illegal, yet there is a street near a cemetery where you can find dead, aborted fetuses all the time. So that's my answer..

      Well you can kill all the babies you want to in America even after they have a human figure. No one has ObamaCare yet and it will be a nightmare, it is about socialistic government, communist, as Obama was raised. You would want that?

    People are often in general afraid to admit when their wrong.  Sometimes they are also simply just loyal to party affiliation.  Sometimes they just don't understand the issues either and simply support the person because he seems like someone who is charismatic and seems like a good guy.

    As a Conservative I can freely admit I was greatly disappointed in President Bush in numerous ways.  He campaigned as a conservative.  But their was very little outside of some tax policy that was reflective of conservative principals.  In fact he was the single biggest spender and advanced the size of gov't more than any other administration in US history until this current comedy show.   So it's hard to call myself a conservative and support him with that type of loyalty.  Unlike Reagan, who fought the congress on Federal expansion tooth and nail...Bush not only played along, but proposed massive new entitlements himself.  I like to think I am intellectually honest enough to admit his administration did very little of what they campaigned upon.

      I was against Bush too in many things but there has never been the nightmare that Obama is.

      I wasn't against Bush, just disappointed with the lack of follow through.  He went from giving Americans control over their SS, which was never even proposed to a massive national prescription drug entitlement that is impossible to pay for.

      LandmarkWealth, I can not agree with you about Reagan, he was a great compromiser and spent a lot of money - you can say it was congress that spent the money but he had to go along with it for it to happen - not really fighting tooth and nail . . .

      I was against Bush, despite him being conservative and a Texan. He was an incompetent buffoon from before the start. Cheney was the real operator. Bush was the plausible deniability on 9/11

      Reagan cut numerous deals with the congress  based on spending cuts that were promised to be delivered in later legislation.  Unfortunately congress failed to draft any such legislation and backed away from promises. His mistake was believing them.

    The same thing that allowed klutzy Bush to become president. Ego and blindness.

    There are an elite few who know how to play our egos like a symphony. And they're driving us over the cliff -- on purpose.

    It seems they want only 500 million on Earth, but totally under their control. See the movies Elysium and Oblivion. These are blueprints. Fiction? Hypnotic suggestion.

    These guys flaunt their power with disdain. Murder 3000+ on a whim on 9/11 and then blame it on Muslims so they can attack all the oil-rich Muslim nations. Sweet.

    They even planted subtle clues in the Matrix movie (1999). Neo's freedom of movement (passport) was set to expire on 9/11/2001 (the day that has been used as an excuse for more tyranny than any other single event in American history).

    It makes me sad, after all the lies, all these politicians (both Republicrats and Demopublicans) tell, but then people continue to cheer. Sweet words. Sweet lies. And cheering idiots. Sad.
