I think another reason that the world is so tuned into American politics is that it is a 2 YEAR process every time there is an election. In Canada, the entire election process takes 6 weeks.
It seems that too much time and money is wasted on electing a new President. How can any President be blamed for not meeting all of their objectives when 2 out of 4 years of their term is spent campaigning and focusing on the next election?
Seems crazy to me…but I would be interested in hearing from American bees as to whether they support the process in general or not.

I also agree that far too much time and money is invested in our presidential election every 4 years. I would love to see the majority of the donations go towards charities each side chooses to support. Can you imagine hundreds of thousands being given away like that, every 4 years?

@lia22: what are his plans to do with all these unwanted babies? No offense to any americans but your country seems to be having a hard enough time feeding the ones they have in this recession. Is HE adopting them, is HE paying for them
Nope. he’s gonna tell them “ok, well, sucks for you!” and then get pissed when they apply for govt assistance. LOVE your comment. I always wonder this. Folks don’t want abortion, but get pissed when the women apply for assiatance. Can’t have it both ways!
Loving this thread! I live in the south…so you know how that is. Basically the vote I cast on Thursday doesn’t count because the state’s gonna turn red anyway. If it turns blue in my lifetime I’ll be surprised.
