HOLY CRAP!!  It seems like the majority of the planet agrees with me for once.  Can we open this up to the rest of the galaxy?

Thanks for sharing, this really put a smile on my face!

So what's going on down there in Venezuela?  Did they get confused because McCain showed up as red?

I'm sending this link to every Republican I know. Perhaps a blend of enlightenment and embarassment will work.  I have a friend in Denmark who recently sent a wish along in a note that we get Obama as president. It struck me then how much more we are on the radars of other world citizens than others are on ours (as shown by our continually flagging HIV positive travel restrictions legislation). Thank you Ademas for posting this incredible site link.

I've found that surprising too. Even on this board members from countries other than the US seem to know a lot about what is going on here.

It still amazes me that of all those people who seem to have such a bad opinion of the USA and its policies that we have a huge immigration  inflow from all over the world, one of our local colleges has 54 different nationalities in attendance  mostly from Eastern Europe and So.America.
Are these just the escapees????

What's up with Macedonia?  Are they a big Bush-loving country?

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade but as much as I detest the thought, mark my words, McKain will be elected. They;ve stolen the past 2 elections, and these cut throat murderous pirates will stop at nothing to insure their candidsate gets in. The religious far right wingnuts all back McCain, as do a lot of the mega rich, military industrial complex and globalists who are in overdrive to create a one world gummint. I've been researching this for over 40 years and woke up when I was in the military.

And if McCain gets elected, will anyone utter a peep in protest? The police state has been quietly and not so quietly put in place since the the reagan/bush years. If masses rise up, it will be an excuse to use overwhelming force, and don't count on the corporate media to report the true facts.

We are not a country, by, of and for the people, more like a country by, of and for multinational banks, businesses and investor class interests....and lets not forget the religious extremists who wag the dog.

If the world could have voted and the election was insured of not being fixed, bush would have lost by a landslide. I will be voting for Obama, but then I live in the godless northeast. Whatever the outcome, I fear it's going  to be very ugly

I hope if Obama is elected you will consider rethinking your views on Americans.

If I could vote in the American elections I would vote for McCain. I love his forzen french fries. Obama seems too much bla, bla, bla...but not realistic at all.

History has shown that no 2 term president along with party affiliation of that current President (Dems, Republicans) during the majority of the 20th Century.

Having said that no matter if there are a majority of McCain or Obama voters it's more likely you'll see Obama in office for a max of 8 years then whether he stays in the White House 4-8 years chances are
there will be a Republican in the White House following Obama's tenure unless that trend is broken somehow.

Up to Franklin D Roosevelt there obviously 3 term presidents as some of you already know.
