A lot has been said in the general 'The Next American President
' Topic. The discussion in there is fierce, emotional and sometimes very tense. Especially since we don't talk face to face to each other. But, even that's what's democracy is about. In this topic however I am curious how forummembers would vote if they had the opportunity to vote in the US Elections.
We tend to discuss a lot without actually stating our voting preferences or ideology preferences, but I do think we could plant some seeds for a bit more mutual respect if we actually understand what candidate or party we would vote for. Understanding one's political views in my opinion could be the basis for a 'let's agree to disagree' approach.
Again, this is just a poll, and I would appreciate it if we continue the fierce discussions in the general thread about the American President: http://www.mi6community.com/index.php?p=/discussion/14869/the-next-american-president-thread#latest
