Accepted. I'll tell you what set me off. It was when you said that he voted out of rage and not on the basis of intellect.

When I hear that, I basically hear yet another person saying, "you think what you think because you're stupid and/or ignorant." Conversely, they're saying "I think what I think because I'm smart and informed."

I think we all need to drop that. That may not have been what you meant, but it came across that way. At least to me.

Hey I have as much angst for Bush as you do but when you say "other liberals" does that mean other "fellow liberals" ?


Are you getting into semantics now? Trying to say that I'd rather say "fellow traveller" than the original intention of the usage of liberal that I typed? I'm no card carrying member of the Communist Party as much as you'd like to believe it, but I'm quite a bit more socialist in tendency than you'd like as well.




Just because you're a dittohead and read the limbaugh letter only tells me you want to know what to expect from those evil haters you refer to calling for Obamas head in a KKK style lynching which is about as much BUNK as anyone can take if you expect me to take you serious about your implied impartiality.


I haven't claimed impartiality here. I'm liberal, you're quite obviously conservative.



You didn't HAVE to listen to jack squat guy, no ones putting a gun to your head and you sound like you tolerated listening to some fringe extremists which exixt in BOTH camps but you listened so you could post up such BUNK just like you are doing here with it.


Before 2008 I had never in my 32 years of existence heard campaign rallies as vitriolic as those from the Republican camp. This is a new era of divisiveness and I'll wallow in it as much as Republicans have started it.


Did you read his favorite books?

I did.

Did read the ones Obama wrote where he exresses his socialist ideals and his socialist mentors all his life and who they are? Did you know he was a member of the Illinois Democrats for socialism and tried to cover it up?
No biggie, it's like he will with everything else we find out about and has so far sealed from public view all the while talking about transparency?


His socalist tendencies don't bother me in the least and I did not include them as a reason for not voting for Obama in my first reply to you. If you truly think Obama is going to turn out to be Castro or Stalin you have another thing coming.



See now I know you are buying the BS because McCain isn't anything like Bush. Not even close.


McCain is clearly on the same field as Bush when it comes to foreign policy. Which is the main problem I have with U.S. politics. Bush, McCain, and Obama all three favored the bailout scheme, so their fiscal policies are about the same. In the past Obama has at least stated he was against some U.S. foreign policy which is more than I can say about John McCain.

You see for many, many years, there has been a massive brainwashing going on, it's what I call the "football team mentality", keep people fighting against each other, get them involved in on the action, keep people fighting so that they can't see what's really going on.

You really nailed it. Everyone has there own little agenda and is to blind to see the larger image at hand. All these labels just split people apart. I like Obama but I don't trust him any more then any other politician.

It is about checks and balances, keep um honest, this is why we have two or more political parties

Keeping one another in check.

hopeless?

However, you might also notice that the only candidate from the past race that is still avidly supported here, and in many other places, is Ron Paul.


Uh... Obama is also supported here.


Well, yes he is. but he won. I'll clarify.
Paul is the only candidate, that despite not winning the election, enjoys a lot of support here, and other places. And the support is growing.

BH, your main point is just silly, when I chose not to vote, it was not about joining a side, I just didn't care to get involved in that stupid little show called "The Presidential Elections", so in fact I did pick a side, the side I picked was "Truth and Wisdom", not "Lies and Ignorance".

You see when I was young, I started to studied people, one thing I gained from my studying of people is that I can tell when someone is trying to manipulate people into believing and going on with whatever they want, it's the reason why I hate sports and most church services, manipulation, manipulation, manipulation, I hate it, even though I've practiced it to get what I want, just like Obama does, I notice his techniques are a lot like what mine used to be.

So I guess I have picked a side, a side that keeps beckoning for you to join, but you never do, simply because you're too caught up in the "game".

P.S., People do litterally worship the guy, like the bald champion, making your children pray to him before bed every night and promising to kill for him if he asks, I think that qualifies as worship.
