At the end of the day, I really don't give a ♥♥♥♥ who is president because the presidents power is limited. My focus will be, as I've done the last couple of elections, to vote against anybody who is currently in right now. We don't need a new president so much as we need a new congress. If you want CHANGE, then you need to vote these people out.
That is so true! How many people pay attention to Congress, and even more importantly local politics (state level and below), where they have the most power to influence change. We (myself included) spend so much time on who's to become the next president, but how many people know who their House of Representatives are, or even easier their senators?
I think people (once again myself included) need to start paying attention to the things that are going on in their own communities and at the state level because if we can't even clean up our own communities/states, how are we suppose to "fix" the entire US?
