im not an american. i do follow american politics, they are basically world politics. been doing some research and it just hasn't become clear to me why america voted for Obama over Ron Paul. Vote for the black guy coz you hope it mite right your wrongs? Instead the American people have voted just as you would expect them to.
I live in Australia and voted in 07 for kevin rudd....(i dont expect americans to know him) but the thing that gets me is how much more influence your elections have on our country as compared to a new PM in our own. I would really like to see international voting systems some how set up because time and time again the american president seems to wander off into foreign habitats using nothing less than heavy footsteps.
