    The campaign years in America are TEDIOUS. Though I could imagine as non-Americans hearing about it almost equally as much is probably just as annoying.

    Maybe you guys can ask your leaders to start having an impact on the world so that we can start caring about who wins your elections too.

    I will start caring as soon as we stop having a two-party system; the people don't really matter. You're either a democrat or a republican; there is not much more to it to me.

    You would think that a more moderate party would win since it would be an average of the extreme opinions on either side of the political spectrum, but no it's either a super conservative or an ultra liberal.

    Both sides will never be happy if there is a two party system, and it shows in society. The only way a society can really be happy is if a single party cares for every individual, regardless of belief.

    People just seem to be predisposed to sensationalism in general; the loudest people are usually the only ones that are heard. I'm a liberal and while I can try to respect republican values at the same time I look at all of the republican candidates and go lolwut.

    Also everyone keeps paying attention to the tea party even though there are many other people who are dissatisfied with the current political climate and are not noticed becuase they are not as batshit insane.

    I am fiscally conservative and socially liberal, however any candidate who would represent my beliefs, most likely a libertarian candidate, would never win. You either get someone who is both fiscally and socially conservatively or both fiscally and conservatively liberal. Maybe if we switched to like a 4 party system and let their be 4 main candidates on the ballot instead of two main candidates and a million smaller parties with only like 10 people representing them each, then we would have a chance of having a president who represents the views of a larger portion of the country than just those with the most extreme of beliefs in the direction of whatever party won that term.

    We probably could get a moderate party in the offices, but the conservative Republicans won't let that happen. They represent the minority in America, so in order to stand a chance, they have to separate voters into two groups, nearly eliminating the middle ground. They do that by raising questions about controversial and complex issues, and creating a panic that forces citizens to choose more radical viewpoints.

    That's what I think.

    Two party system is fine as long as it's between a libertarian and a totalitarianist. Otherwise you get the current system in which two parties take turns to slowly take away any and all freedoms.

    Yeah, it can get annoying. It's amazing how big a stink they make over who could be the next US president in the German media. Like it has any big impact on our lives over here.

    When W. got elected for a second term, the media over here shit their collective pants, they were like "oh god, what's he gonna do now in his second term, Dick Cheney will make him invade Europe if we don't want to send any more troops". Well, guess what: nothing fucking changed in any way that would affect the average Hans and Helga.

    Now it's the same, except with Bachmann or Perry, and this time they are also afraid there will be a gay holocaust come 2012.

    What do you mean?
    are the germans going to be wiped out by a bunch of Queer Eye rejects?
    or are you going to gas all homosexuals?

    Australian TV dedicates a UNHOLY amount of time on American elections, moreso than our own elections.
    its sad, really fucking sad.

    Eh. I'm libertarian. I don't agree with either parties and imo, I think both are shit. However, I disagree more with the Democratic party. I think of it as this, when one side gets more radical, the other side has to too. It's like the opposite magnets, and to stay in the same place each have to be matched. I would say I'm a pretty much moderate, however, I reaaallly dislike the Democratic party. I think the Republican party needs to remove the fuckwits and religion, change their stance on abortion, and gay marriage.

    When Cameron got all angry and threatening with those uppity rioters i almost thought Britain elected a actual heterosexual white male.
    good thing i was wrong, i have money riding on the UK becoming a third world nation before America does.

    No, they are afraid that Bachmann & co. will kill all the gays in the US. Believe me, that is an only slightly hyperbolic summary of the general consensus in the media.

    Back in the day, Aussie premier ministers based their whole campaigns on sucking up to the US - "All the way with LBJ (i.e. Lyndon B. Johnson)"

    lolno, cameron is a rich upper class gayboy like all the other top tories, besides, our politicians are some of the most dishonest unpleasant human turds in politics world wide. and I suspect your money is safe with that bet. I hope europe and america have some refugee camps ready for us.

    TBH, nigbama is less likely to start a war.
