In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

"The american public want a lot of contradicting things that can not be satisfied simultaneously.

The american public want the government to balance its budget and lower taxes and at the same time want government programs that creates and maintains jobs, social security benefits, military superiority and the list goes on.


But, those aren't all the same people - the elections often show that there is often a ~50/50 split on these things.

Me, I hate both parties, and I usually try to vote for the lesser of the two evils. In this case, I didn't vote Obama, but I have plenty of family/friends who did...
"

thats my point ..saying "this is what the american people want and those politicians dont care about what the american people want because they arent doing A, B or C" is too general to not mean much.

This is what "liberals/conservatives/conservative christians/libertarians/fiscal conservatives/" want is a bit more informative. Generalities are at best meaningless and at worst disingenuous.

dont mean to be political but, anybody who advocate on one thing must also specify how they would compensate for the opposing positions.Any mention of lowering taxes must for example be accompanied with willingness to run a deficit or a proposal to what government program to be cut.

Not if you are a Neo-Con. They just borrow and spend. (See the last 8 years of the US Government)
