Why try and back up a lying war monger and Wall Street man heck he could be a murder and you would still justify his actions. People that have the ability to create solutions in society include engineers, tradesmen, architects, scientists, mathematicians, properly trained teachers & Philosophers, etc. Politics try and keep things archaic and subservient to the ruling monarchy.
Then why don't we elect an engineer, tradesman, architect, scientist, mathematician, properly trained teacher or philosophers?

That's not the point the point is you have a Dictator for a 4 year reign.
Republicans have voted against everything Obama has done or tried to do, moreso than with any other president. You're talking about dictatorship? Why don't you go criticize a president who was given the means to do whatever they wanted to? Namely Bush and his spying on the American people...

First thing he promised to bring troops back home was the first promise he broke, again this is one of the big reasons why our current President shouldn't be re-elected, broken promises bring corruption to one's inner self.
I'm not crazy about Obama myself, but I think singling him out for his lack to fulfill a promise is kind of a lame thing to pin on him. Maybe the fact that he allowed NDAA to pass would be something more solid to use against him, but I can't think of a single president that didn't break a promise.

If you don't vote they don't have a reason to care about you, all they have to do is go after people who will.
That's really bad logic. Someone's going to win the election either way, you might as well pick the lesser of two evils. If you want to protest, do it with words. Inaction won't do shit.

I remember my dad telling me someone I know is a part of the last regiment to be shipped off to Afghanistan but I just can't remember who it was. Try looking at the war on terror in a tactical point of view, backing out isn't as easy as its seem. We can't just turn our back on them and walk away cause they're the kind that will take advantage of that. Tell me how you'd do it, I want to know!
I think it would be irresponsible for us to just pull out of the war right now, given that we've totally screwed up most of the middle east. But if we did, I don't think there would be many consequences as far as terrorists attacking us. We haven't had very many terrorists trying to invade the US, plus the 9/11 attacks were planned. I guess it could fall into debate whether it was an inside job or not, but between the vanishing plane, the third building that went down, the news that reported the attacks before they happened, etc. I would say at the very least our government gave Al Qaeda the green light.

Obama is a gun toting, pro military, religious nut? OK, he does love drone strikes, but he really, really hates what is in my gun cabinet.
Who knows what Obama thinks and wants, and who cares? Mitt Romney was in the middle back in the day, but he has to project a far right ideology to get votes. Similarly, Obama has to say or do whatever liberals will like. What he as a person has a problem with is inconsequential; his personal preferences will never be made clear to the public.
