Andrew, I'm also struggling to bite my tongue.
Open your eyes man. This country is ALREADY different than the one you and I experienced growing up. The nice tales of American democracy,
integrity, and free-world leader is long gone.
We have shifted to a nationalistic, socialist economy...backed by a governemnt that has incrementally eroded our civil liberties since September 11.
The powers afforded to the Executive Branch and now the Treasury Department directly violate those provided in the U.S. Constitution. Our government
continues to violate us.
Now, how this country advances under Obama or McCain is not worth arguing. Be scared of Obama if you wish. But be scared of McCain. The Executive
Branch is no longer the "checked and balanced" branch that we read in our little history books.
So enough with the "I fear Obama" crap. Fear our own present government, Congress, Treasury, President, and voting bloc that elects many of these
idiots into office year-in-and-and-year-out.
Please, no personal disrespect to you. I respect your opinions. I'm just a very proud American, and very angry/disappointed at our current state of
This is not the America we used to know.
