no matter who wins we lose. They are a both puppets on the same persons hands. Rockafeller, morgan, and all the other rich people of the world control our government. THEY ARE THE TERRORISTS. They keep us under control with our own complacency.
So cash, u have no control over the ads on here? I see alot of sites advertising on here about one click iphone unlocks for $30, ringtones for $.99, and now politics! Whats up?
Also, the iphone version of mmi, search function still doesnt work.

I usually dont post a whole lot on these forums, but i am here almost everyday finding out new ways to make my phone act as a mini computer, and its great...but this post is just ridiculous.
aside from the obvious "you didnt have to download it" bs, youre complaining about the fact that the election is everywhere...so why post a huge thread on the front page of you IPHONE site talking about what a lot of people are sick of seeing everywhere else? I also understand and agree with the fact that there are a lot of bs apps on the appstore, but as we all know, the iphone isnt our baby and along with that, neither is the appstore and neither is the choice to let certain apps through while sending a big fat rejection letter for others.
when it comes down to it there are a lot of things that make the iphone an EXTREMELY useful technology, so try to look at it this way...
i am an audio engineering student, therefore proRemote is a pretty badass app to have on my iphone seeing how most of my time is spent in protools. now, what if most of my time was spent working with/on the election, this app would help out a lot dont you think?
no disrespect to cash or anyone else for that matter, im not trying to bash anyone...i just felt compelled to say something.

The app store is a platform for getting lots of ideas across.
None of them force you to purchase or download any of the apps.
Looking at the Obama app for the iphone I view it just like I view the audi test drive app that was free. It's just another medium of advertising/getting the message out.
They don't point a gun at your head to download it.

What you Obama supporters need to understand is that small businesses make up over 72% of all American jobs. And 97% of those small business fall above Obamas 250k a year mark. Obama will raise taxes on these small businesses. Do you think these businesses will just eat the higher cost of doing business? No, they will pass it on to their consumers or they will cut jobs to make up for it. So what good is it if you will get lower taxes but have to pay more for products or services? What good is it if you lose your job because a small business can't afford new taxes? I own a small business that employees 25 people. If my taxes go up I can only afford to raise my sales price so much before I lose sales. What will happen is I will have to make a decision on where I can cut cost. I don't want to lose anyone but I may be forced to. If I cut 2-3 (10-12%) jobs to make up for it and all small business cut jobs along the same percentage of their work force, unemployment will sky rocket.

Seriously, do your damn research before you start throwing out numbers that are flat out WRONG.
One more thing. That increase in taxes you're talking about if you make over 250k? You are 100% right. From 250k-600k Obama will INCREASE YOUR TAXES!
...by about $12 total.

How about deleting this entire thread and the front page post that made it possible.
It's embarrassing to see this iPhone venue turn into a front page endorsement and thinly veiled bash of a candidate.
Take this **** to the off topic forms where it belongs.
And while you are at it either decide if this website endorses a candidate so we can all decide if it's focused on politics or supporting iPhone users.

Furthermore significant number of Americans own stock, especially current retirees and baby boomers who are about to retire. Also, many retirees and those contemplating retirement who own homes will downsize: (1) because they can no longer afford the upkeep on a large home and their ability to keep paying high real estate taxes is severely impacted with a reduced retirement income; so if they get hit with a capital gains tax upon downsizing their homes, this further impacts their future retirement income; (2) those who own stocks are counting on the capital gains to sustain a certain standard of living; and now that dream is shattered because of the significant increase in the capital gains tax.
Obama's economics will hurt a large portion of small businesses. Small businesses are the backbone of this country. We employ people who live in the US and do not outsource to other countries. However, who is going to hire you if small business is crushed? Is this really what our country needs?
Obama wants to add a trillion+ dollars worth of spending, how do you think he will pay for this? All you Obama supporters keep looking at your “proposed” income tax break.

So take a chill pill and realize that even though someone might not like something does not mean they think it was a bad idea or one that was poorly executed. Next time you read something, read it correctly before you slap your fingers against your keyboard.
Also, for anyone who thinks that Obama is going to be worse for the economy or the working class than any Republican I suggest you do some serious re-thinking. When was the last time a Republican focused on helping the average Joe. Now, I could be wrong I suppose because I do not know that much about politics, but I feel I know enough to make that statement.

I believe we're screwed no matter who we choose, so I refuse to even waste my time voting, I think what really got him mad is that we're seeing a bunch of the same useless apps over and over again in the app store, and this is just going to be the start of an overflow of annoying political apps that will get accepted into the app store, while many good and unique apps will get rejected, if a politician promises some good apps for the app store, only then will I get up to vote on election day
