The 2012 US elections

Updated on December 10, 2012

Obama Re- election causes stirs among the Who is Who of America.

The Re- election of incumbent President Barrack Obama as the President of the United States is causing more rifts and stirs as many notable Americans of high personalities and great stature in society are come out and openly criticize the decision of the people who took the initiative and went to the polls and with great care decided to re-elect Mr. Obama. I am not saying that it is bad to air your opinion but at times we have to look at the effects our opinions are going to have out there, especially if our status in the society is highly regarded.

US elections.

Elections 2012

The latest among those who have openly shown their emotions towards the Re-election of president Barrack Obama is Donald Trump, the multi-billionare American investor and businessman who is the founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts and the current chairman and president of the Trump organization. Trump has called on a revolution in America to counter the re-election of Barrack Obama terming the whole election process as flawed and untrustworthy. The question is, why do we let a few individuals spoil the party? Is it because we are helpless or because we do not have courage to face them? I would also like to make it very clear that I am not intending to fight any personality through this lens,please do not judge me wrongly. I am just airing my views. Lets embrace change and work towards making the world a better place to be and enjoy the fruits of peace and tranquility that are otherwise not enjoyed by many other Nations, a good example being the Nation of Somalia where there has been no Government for the past 20 years. There is no need for calling for a revolution or mass demonstration just because of having your preferred candidate lose a General election.

EMBRACE PEACE

There is no need for revolution

A History of the Republican Party (Classic Reprint)
A History of the Republican Party (Classic Reprint)

Early in February, L900, the writer delivered an address before the Stamina Republican League of Cincinnati on The Origin and Rise of the Republican Party. The interest in the subject shown by the audience and the many words of approbation led to a deeper consideration of the history of the Party, and the address was repeated on a more elaborate plan before many other organizations in Cincinnati and vicinity. it soon became apparent that the great majority of every audience had very vague recollections of the tragic events which led to the organization of the Party, and of its early history, owing perhaps i i the fact that they belonged to a generation thai had followed the enactment of those events.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.

The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got S hafted
The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got S hafted

The New York Times bestselling exposé of what passes for business as usual in Washington today There was a time, not so very long ago, when perfectly rational people ran the Republican Party. So how did the party of Lincoln become the party of lunatics? That is what this book aims to answer. Fear not, the Dems come in for their share of tough talkâ they are zombies, a party of the living dead. Mike Lofgren came to Washington in the early eightiesâthose halcyon, postâNixonian glory daysâfor what he imagined would be a short stint on Capitol Hill. He has witnessed quite a few low points in his twenty-eight years on the Hillâbut none quite so pitiful as the antics of the current crop of legislators whom we appear to have elected. Based on the explosive article Lofgren wrote when he resigned in disgust after the debt ceiling crisis, The Party Is Over is a funny and impassioned exposé of everything that is wrong with Washington. Obama and his tired cohorts are no angels but they have nothing on the Republicans, whose wily strategists are bankrupting the country one craven vote at a time. Be prepared for some fireworks.

Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement that Shattered the Party
Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement that Shattered the Party

Republican Gomorrah is a bestiary of dysfunction from the dark heart of the Republican party. An instant bestseller, it exposes the extreme right wing forcesthe so-called teabaggersthat have taken over the party and spearheaded grassroots protests against the Obama administration. It shows how these forces are the ones that establishment Republicanslike John McCain and Mitt Romneymust bow to if they have any hope of running for President. It reveals why Sarah Palin was the logical choice of a party in the control of theocrats. Award-winning journalist Max Blumenthal explains how a culture of personal crisis and scandal has defined the radical right, transforming the character of the Republican Party for the next generation and setting the stage for the future of American politics.

I Can't Believe I'm Sitting Next to a Republican: A Survival Guide for Conservatives Marooned Among the Angry, Smug, and Terminally Self-Righteous

With biting wit and amusing personal anecdotes, Harry Steinâs I Canât Believe Iâm Sitting Next to a Republican chronicles the everyday travails and triumphs of the plucky conservatives marooned in the liberal bastions that loathe them, from Manhattan to Hollywood, to all the noxious places in between. Surrounded by the insufferably smug and self righteous -- from the angry old lady with the anti-war sign affixed to her walker to the random jerk at a dinner party quoting George Soros â these intrepid souls live in a hostile world; knowing that anytime a neighbor chances to learn their views on affirmative action, big government, feminism, the environment, abortion, multi-culturalism, sex education, the reliability of The New York Times, the scariness of evangelicals or (fill in the blank), his/her face will register stunned surprise and deep confusion. Or worse.Stein gives special attention to those conservatives working in professions dominated by the liberal eliteâjournalism, publishing, entertainment, and academiaâcelebrating their guts and sharing in their disdain for the dogmatism of the self-appointed creative and intellectual class. The result is a conservativeâs guide to love, work, friendship, dinner party mischief, and staying happy and un-smeared in liberal America.  

 

I do not know what you think but surely you cannot afford not to vote in the up coming US Elections.

      Trump is not someone I'd listen to. It's important to vote and to act peacefully.

      Democracy is system where only number of votes, not money, power, intellect or anything else behind this number, counts. It is not a perfect system, but it is still the best we have.

      @spider11235813: I think voting for the person you think is going to benefit the country the most is great but you should associate yourself with a given party in order to feel the wonderful atmosphere brought by every election

      I find it interesting that many people do not vote by Party. Parties are a good thing in that you can read what they stand for (platform) and decide which (we do have more than two!) that agrees with YOU. Then you can vote for any politician who is also a member of your party because you have a good idea of where they stand.

      Of course you can vote however you please but political parties do serve a useful purpose.

      I don't associate with a party either. They all have good and bad about them. Just vote for the person who you think is going to benefit the country the most.

      Being a naturalized citizen, I take voting as a very important part of my life...I personally believe we should NOT vote for a party, but for whoever is the best qualified person for the seat of Presidency. I don't think there is one person out there that could have fixed all this in the last 4 years, this has been going on long before the President took office.

      Whoever wins, I hope they take a good look at our national debt. We can't keep going like we are going, no matter who is in charge. We are headed towards a cliff, no matter who is behind the wheel.

      I'm voting for Romney. As a Christian and conservative woman, I find the DNC's pro-abortion stance very disturbing. I don't want my tax dollars going (against my will) towards something I find reprehensible. And there's more than just the abortion issue I take issue with. Too many cover-ups with this administration. I'll say this for him: Obama does have the the whole "spend, borrow, and tax" thing down really well.

      This election is going to be a decisive path for Americans. Personally, I think Obama has done a good job and I plan to vote for him for four more years. Romney and the Republican party have gotten too far to the right and become a bastion of ideologues. We all need to become more independent when we vote. We also need to vote based on more than one issue. Finally, we need to recognize that platitudes are not policy. You can't buy a sack of potatoes with one.

      I believe regardless of who wins the election, our nation's problems will not be solved overnight. If we don't come together as a whole, things will only get worse! All the mudslinging in the world is not going to fix our economy.

      In the U.S. voting is not compulsory but you had better to donate to campaigns if you are wealthy and want to stay in business.

      @johnsja: Compulsory! wow thats great, but I think giving people a choice whether to or not to elect leaders would be much better... In the US, making voting compulsory would complicate matters.

      I think in order to solve the our nation's problem,-we must put aside our political differences and come together as ONE. Just think of how much money has already been spent towards promoting ALL the political campaigns and NONE actually going towards solving the real problem(s).

      The real problem(s) cannot be solved b one party alone- and thatâs a fact.

      OUR INJURED VETERANS REALLY NEED OUR HELP. Thanks for listening.

      This is a huge election. The country needs to change the way it thinks. I'm just still not sure Romney is the answer though.

      The direction the US is headed under Democrat and some Republican leaders will certainly end in national bankrupcy as it has in Greece and elsewhere. We are borrowing huge sums of money and spending far more than we borrow. It's not possible to tax or print your way to prosperity. Private enterprse must be encouraged and government must shrink.
