You people amaze me. I've looked through this thread and there are only a couple of actually intelligent posts (see above).
The original poster needs to learn to seperate "Socialism" and "Communism". They are not one in the same. I could explain, but obviously, you
have the internets too.
It seems that the majority of people on this board are either children with no life experience to draw their opinion from, or extremely uneducated,
unintelligent, bigoted adults with plenty of experience to draw from, thus leaving you no excuse.
Face it, you're afraid. We have the first black president. A lot of you probably don't see a whole lot of black people where you live. You're
also afraid of something different, which Obama is, very much so. But Christ, do you really think we can go on beating the same dead horse? Do we
need more of the same for what, 8 more years? Something drastic needs to change and it needs to change now. The last 8 years have dragged the
United States through the mud on the world stage. Old allies have distanced themselves and old enemies have found ways to get closer to us. We've
had the first, large scale "terrorist" attack on American soil. Our DOW has fallen to the lowest level since 2003, and our economy has slowed more
than any time in the last 15-20 years.
Is this the course we want to stay?
It is a shame that someone would cast their vote simply because the candidate shares their skin color. It's dispicable. All this talk about
"taking a huge step forward" regarding race relations in this country is BS. It would have been a huge step if we voted based on the man, not the
ethnicity. It would have been a huge step if we didn't beat "race" into the ground after the election. It would have been a huge step if we just
did it and didn't pat ourselves on the back for doing so after the fact. Yes we've come a long way. Yes, it's a great thing. Leave it at that.
You people just look for a reason to be afraid. It's really unfortunate that you can't be happy unless you're unhappy. You folks really need to
get out and enjoy life...Get off the internet, stop the video games, get outside and go for a walk...or god forbid...a run.
Try to expand your narrow little minds.
Give it a chance. If in two years all of our incomes are taxed 10% to spread the wealth for the "greater good", our economy has crashed and the
soup lines are wrapped around the block longer than the election lines 2 years prior, I'll be wrong, but I'll also be on my way to becoming a
Canadian citizen. But I don't think so. I think you're about to see something great...
