Depends on who he is running against. I'm not going to blindly vote for someone without hearing what his candidate has to offer.

No. I don't know who else will be running so I don't know who I will vote for but I didn't vote for Obama the first time and I won't do it this time.

Ditto with me too!!!!!!

To be honest I don't think we will be allowed to have another election Obama has written some many laws I wouldn't but it pass him that since he is "King" he can't be replace. He has started riots by saying the rise need to pay more who does he think create jobs, and if I made a lot of money it is mine no one elses. No one wants illegals here but he does and he is one.

Default obama yes/no

For me it is a no..... but more importantly, it is Congress that affects us the most.
We have to get rid of those "lifers" in Congress.

10% approval rating of Congress is probably too high, our politicians have wrecked this country and this
economy with their tax and spend socialism.

I will not support any politician that defends, supports, or ignores our illegal immigrant problem
Illegal is illegal is illegal.
Saying they are undocumented immigrants is like saying a drug seller is an unlicensed pharmacist

No more bailouts - Never again. Bailing out big corporations and banks that turn around and screw the
taxpayers with high fees and bloated corporate salaries is a slap in the face of every American

Obama never created a job in his private life - Hasn't done so in his political life.

Okay, as someone who is very involved in politics and dislikes how political myths can lead people to vote contrary to how they would absent those myths, I can't let this post go by without refuting or responding to a few points.

The "Obama is not a natural born citizen" debate has been settled with verified photos of his original birth certificate with a raised seal. Besides, the debate has never been whether he is a legal or illegal citizen, it's been whether he was born in Hawaii or in another country. FactCheck.org : Born in the U.S.A.

Everyone in congress - R and D agrees that we do not want illegals in the country - the disagreement is on what to do with the ones who are already here.

Obama started riots - Occupy Wall Street is not a series of riots, nor was it started by Obama. It's most similar to the tea party rallies except in demographics, and Obama certainly didn't start those rallies.

As far as the money you've made - If you want to live in a place where government does not participate in funding items that serve the common good, such as national defense, then you would be able to keep all that you've earned. Otherwise, there is a cost to the benefits (however dubious) provided by government, and your income is taxed to pay for those things. We have lower taxes than just about every other developed nation.

Finally, to propose that Obama is king and that we will not be allowed to have another election is so ludicrous I am deeply hoping you're just exhibiting a high degree of sarcasm.

-------------------------

To answer the original question, no I will not be voting for Obama. I didn't vote for him in 2008 because I didn't agree with his policies. I was concerned about having Sarah Palin as VP, so while I voted for McCain when he ran against Bush in the primaries I couldn't vote for him in 2008. So I voted for Bob Barr - my first time voting for someone other than the main two candidates in the many elections I've voted in over the years.

I'm more optimistic there will be a Republican candidate that I can vote for this time. If not, I'll vote for someone other than the main two candidates again. I haven't seen anything from Obama that has changed my mind about whether his policies are good for our country.

What I would really love is if we adopted instant runoff voting or preferential voting instead of the current "winner take all" system. That way, if people preferred a third party candidate, they could vote for that person, but still know their vote would be counted for their second choice candidate if their first choice candidate does not get 50%+1 vote.
