Race did play a role. Mostly to Obama's benefit though. Black people have been most racist out of them all (even during the primaries leaving Hillary OVERWHELMINGLY). White people have been much more balanced (hence why Obama won much more support than McCain).

Hmm, well the Republicans were doing such a good job I don't understand why Obama became President


Sarcasm aside, OP I think perhaps you are a bit premature. Lets wait and see how this all goes down.

I was saying that race didn't matter to me, I know it was a major issue in the election.

Very clever, my friend.

So you assume, that 2 years of Democrat dominance in the Congress, is much worse than the previous 6 of GOP? They layered the foundation of crisis and the the demise of our Country. We got tired of their sh*t, placed the Dems to fix it up; too bad we were already in too deep.

Good call.

I was expecting to see a massive Dem dominance all over the high offices once again. Righteous judgment showed I was right on my expectations. GOP has eff'd up. Acceptance is a privilege.

November 4th 2008 marks the dawn of a new day. Gone will be the days where hard work actually means something in order to prosper in the world. Gone are the days where family matters. Welcome to the economic enslavement of the entire nation. No longer will you benefit from succeeding in business or work.




Let me give a hard dose of F-OFF!!!!! Your story sounds great, but are you blind???

Gone will be the days .... Ya um how hard to people really physically work make 250,000 a year? I've busted my ass in kitchens all over the US for almost 20 years. I have scars, major burns and 12 dollars an hour at best minus taxes and school loans. leaving me like 150 dollars a month to live off. There is no real value in what I do other than feed people and help sustain life on this rock!

Gone are the days.... Family will always matter... don't be so presumoptious.

Oh and the kicker to your intro.... WE ALREADY ARE ENSLAVED YOU JERK!!! DO YOU DRIVE THE CAR OF YOUR DREAMS???? HAVE THE HOME/S YOU ALWAYS WANTED? ARE YOU IN THE TOP 1% OF INCOME. YOU SOUND LIKE LINCOLN HAS COME BACK TO TAKE YOUR PLANTAION AWAY! Sorry about the caps, but wanted my point to be clear!


You clearly don't know anymore about the world than what you see on tv. Go read a couple law books, and maybe something about the uniform commercial code that governs our financial, and civil world ( I do mean globaly). You seem to fear, fear itself. Not a lot could be worse than the past 8 years. You wanna talk about loss of American value look to overseas labor and George W. Bush, that Cheney guy and Wall St. You have beeen duped from the get go so stow the sob story, get a real hardworking , low paying job, and try to work your way up in the world.

Good luck finding the light when the blindfold finally falls of your hoowinked head!

We will make cuts of the work force at my company when Obama does his tax increases. Two of our employees voted for Obama, so they top the list for layoff. This sanction is perfectly legal in my state; you may terminate an employee for any reason, or for no reason at all. We will give these two gents some change they can believe in.

I hope all small business owners who need to reduce their work force do the same.

The health care sector isn't going to crumble.... I have owned a orthodontic laboratory for 15 years and have seen more damage by insurance companies to the sector than not. Look if we have a government controlled healthcare plan here's what we in the orthodontic field will see and other health fields might see as well. The government is NOT going to cover all cost first. It's just not happening. They will how ever give points to insurance companies to lower rates that they in turn can turn in to tax deductions for thier over-all cost at the end of the year a social trade off for tax cuts which is fair. But companies who take these points will agree to a set cost far lower to companies.( This will drive the other companies who don't choose to take the points to drop their rates as well to compete for business..there's your good ole capital drive and it will force health care cost down as a whole)
That will allow more companies to offer health care which will create more jobs and the trickle up effect of more poeple having health care will fuel the need for workers. And then you add on a government health card that could cover the % that your insurance doesn't cover..."hello"... and you have a very sound plan. If you toss in a choice in your health care then even better. Stop with the doom and gloom...
I deal with Canadian patients all the time. The only time you hear any thing negative is if someone wasn't happy with their clinical visit or some thing. You can't please everyone always it's just not going to happen.

Listen maybe to you it has NOTHING to do with COLOR, but based on all the rallies I've seen to date, it has a LOT to do with it. Get yourself and your judgment straight before swearing one more time.

Ignorant.

Just to mark my statement clear, I did not say Give up your Country. Give it up as in "enough with the doom and gloom, and the GOD please Help us" kind of plea.

It really sounds too self-centered on your part (and the ones who share your thoughts). Never have I heard so much drama during an election in my life.

My dear sweet friend and admirer of Albert E., I will not pledge allegiance to the flag we fly now. We have been flying a war/conflict flag for quite sometime. When we we hang our civil flag once more in this great nation I WILL salute with great vigour, and joy. Do you even know that there is a Civil/peace time flag for the United States of America? Look it up! Why should someone be forced to agree with a war banner if their goal is civility?

Just a thought.... And I agree... May God help us all!

What makes any of you think that he is going to be the first president in history to actually make good on his campaign promises. Everything that has been said thus far has been said TO GET YOUR VOTE. We will soon see what his real agenda is.

You could not be farther offbase if you tried. It was regulation of market that caused problems. It was government intervention and pressure from lobbyist that caused risky loans to be issued. If we had deregulated the market, the market would have stabilized itself. You need economics 101.

Yeah, after he revives immigration policies that John McCain abandoned two years ago. Policies that actually gave illegal immigrants a free pass.

Race did play a role. Mostly to Obama's benefit though. Black people have been most racist out of them all (even during the primaries leaving Hillary OVERWHELMINGLY). White people have been much more balanced (hence why Obama won much more support than McCain).


Black men have been mostly charged with racism in the sense that they voted for Obama not for what he stands for, but because he is african-american.

On the other hand, the White men proved, yet again, they need to rid themselves of the racism of hate, when I heard them say things like:

"I won't vote for Obama because I don't want a black man as my president"

"He is a terrorist"

"Kill the 'n-word'"

"He's the anti-Christ"

"I won't have a 'n-word' be my president"

"Obama means Osama, and his second name is Hussein"

All this hatred, incredibly stupid and full of ignorance, and just because he is black. They do not have any other reason for their expression whatsoever; not one at all.

Prepare for Obama allying himself with his anti-american cohorts. Then he will declare martial law, disband Congress and the House.
If he dares to try, he will be overthrown by the American People he misled.

just about finished the first page of this thread when i couldn't stand reading any longer the people want to blame bush, or blame clinton, or blame the republicans/democrats for the financial situation we are in. the long and short of it is that the whole mess truly started back with carter (possibly before him but that is where i stopped looking into presidents economic policies) and clinton got lucky with the wave of the cycle ending peaking out whilst he was still in office. our type of economy that we have at the moment dictates cyclical returns...and again, started back with carter...so if you truly want someone to blame, blame him...


and actually now that i think about it...if there is one thing that we can blame whole-heartedly, it is the FED...

A little Music to set the mood.



We are not the USSA yet...


But, we are trending that way...



BJ Clinton brought moral socialism
GW Bush brought fiscal socialism


Now, Barrack Huessain-Mohamad Soetoro Obama will bring SOCIAL Socialism





Reguardless of how you feel about Barry, this is going to be an exciting 4 years.

Almost true.

White americans chose mcCain 55% to 43%. Whether that is fair or not may be a valid point of discussion, but white americans did not give obama more support than they did McCain.

My source is the CNN exit polls.

www.cnn.com...

Yes, race was an issue and yes, black americans voted overwhelmingly for obama. But white americans did not support Obama.
