    Sadly I guess those ads work on some people. You could just look at the numbers and decide if 4 more years is a good idea.

    Isn’t the Loon the Canadian National Bird? I know it used to be on their money. The commercials in Virginia almost make me feel like the man in the cartoon. The incessant polling phone calls and their leading questions put me the rest of the way there. I am SOOO looking forward to the end of this election.

    Maybe he needs to shut the TV off and lift his fat @$$ out of the chair to go do something constructive

    Fair point! I don’t see a guy with a gun to his head forcing him to watch. Some of the people who complain about it the loudest are the ones who rush home so they can catch it all live- or at least as “live” as these pre-scripted, regurgitated piles of dreck get.
    This particular zombie invasion can’t get inside your house unless you let it!

    Are we really so stupid as a society that we can be swayed by continuous lying? Are we really so unwilling to do our homework? Are we really so willing to let others think for us?

    Now, if the answers to those questions is “no”, then there is no need for those ads. Consider how many bridges we could fix, how many people we could heal, with the money spent on these ads?

    Maybe you can clear this up for us “Yankees” (“Rednecks” as you so often eloquently put it.). You emigrated (reasons don’t matter), you consider yourself a Canadian (I presume from the entirety of your posts), so why is it again that you vote in American elections? Do you hold some sort of dual Canadian/American citizenship? Are you considered a temporary Canadian citizen? Are US laws so lax that the they allow ex-patiots to have a say in our elections? Have you given up residence in the US? Please be specific.

    Leaving your disagreement with the ‘Dr’ aside, Our electoral system is being ‘infiltrated’ by pregnant foreign nationals who come here legally and stay until they give birth to the bouncing baby US citizen. Then they take the child back to China, Korea, or Eastern Europe…probably other continents/countries as well…where the child grows up knowing nothing about their birthplace but what they are allowed to see and learn. Then, upon reaching 18, they can just fill out that absentee ballot.
    While I feel, as an American, their citizenship shouldn’t be revoked, I also feel, as an American, the lack of cultural, educational, and social familiarity turns those votes into possible weapons to be used against us at the ballot box.
    I am conflicted and concerned and wish my elected officials would send even a form letter back to me with their thoughts on the issue. I think we have more in common with Canadian expatriates than we do with those overseas.
    Respectfully,

    C DOWNS: No disrespect, but as someone who seems to lean to the left, and supports Obama, I find your comment confusing.

    1) It contradicts several tenets of the left. Any time the issue of “anchor babies” is brought up, the left claims this is an overblown problem. They then make the counter-claim that more affluent foreign nationals come into the country on visas to have their babies due to America’s advanced medical care, and then leave. See this Politifact article for an example.

    Of course some on the far left (think La Raza) think there should be open borders, and citizenship shouldn’t even be a factor for voting in American elections.

    2) Any time the issue of illegal immigrant’s voting comes up (and I realize you are making the distinction between an illegal immigrant and a citizen by virtue of place of birth), the left demand statistics, claiming this is another non-issue. Liberals are against Voter ID. Meanwhile, Liberals in California last week passed a law giving illegal immigrants Photo ID Drivers Licenses.

    So while I would agree with you that Foreign Nationals with US Citizenship have the potential to be a problem re: voting, I would need to see some statistics to back this up. After all, how many affluent foreigners come to this Country to have their baby’s and then go home? Thousands? And how many of those are going to vote in our elections? Several hundred, tops? It would have to be an extremely close election for them to have any effect. Meanwhile there a literally millions of illegal immigrants with the potential to vote illegally and sway elections, and the Left sees no problem.

    3) As an Obama supporter, I’m not sure what your problem would be, anyway. For better or worse (in my opinion, worse) we’ve got a 2 party system in this Country. There aren’t enough “foreign US Citizens” to affect the nominating process. So they, along with us, are stuck with either Democrats or Republicans. Are European Socialists going to vote for a Republican or Democrat? (I’m biting my tongue hard not to call Obama a European Socialist.) Even Chavez and Castro endorse Obama.

    4) In my experience, Americans who emigrate to Canada do so because they appreciate a more Socialist political system. (CANUCK being a fine example.) Europeans (and others) who immigrate to the US do so to escape Socialism or Communism. They tend to be the loudest when they see our Country headed down that path.

    5) “Then they take the child back to China, Korea, or Eastern Europe…probably other continents/countries as well…where the child grows up knowing nothing about their birthplace but what they are allowed to see and learn. Then, upon reaching 18, they can just fill out that absentee ballot.”

    Believe me, I’m not a birther, but you do realize you’re describing the guy you’re voting for, right? Born in the US, spent much of his childhood in “other continents/countries”, mentored by anti-Americans and Communists. Catch my drift?
