The difference between Romney and Obama is like the difference between pest and cholera. Obama has multiplied the drone war, and 2009, he received the largest campaign contribution from Goldman Sachs - The U.S. Election Commission FEC stated that the investment bank Goldman Sachs has donated (up to April 2008) $ 523,478 for Obama, JPMorgan Chase until then $ 317,142 , Lehman Brothers $ 302,697, 301,146 U.S. dollars Citigroup, Morgan Stanley $ 225,976. I don't think, it is better now.

ich bekam darauf folgende Antwort:
„Rainald, tell that to the people who will lose their healthcare if Romney is elected and the Republicans repeal Obamacare, or the people who will never even get access to healthcare at all if the US puts off universal health insurance for another couple of decades. Tell that to the women who will have their reproductive rights restricted under a GOP regime. Tell it to gays and lesbians whose right to marry who they choose will be further delayed. Tell it to the people who will suffer in the US and around the world who will suffer if Romney wins and guarantees a reactionary Supreme Court for decades. Don't even think about doing anything about global warming. An even more conservative US Supreme Court would turn it down.
The drone war is absolutely evil, and arguably a violation of international law, but Obama didn't start it and both candidates endorse it. For the sake of ourselves and our children, it's important that Obama be reelected. The day he is, we need to start actively and effectively pressuring him to end the drone campaign.
But for now the drone war is a distraction. The only presidential candidate who proposes ending it is Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate, and that's a whole other kettle of worms. One could sit out the election altogether, on the grounds that all the candidates are imperfect. But that would simply help elect a very rich and sinister plutocrat and help give him a seeming mandate, without actually taking the personal responsibility of voting for him.
Sorry about the long rant but this is important. Here in the US, the idea that the two candidates are no different from each other is exactly what Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers want people to believe.“
Peter, I understand, that this makes you angry, but the rest of the world suffers from 18 000 000 000 000 $ debts of the USA, and even as our government is not really better, we want to get rid of that, and Obama does not show a sign, that he will manage that.
