a future where America is less dependent on foreign oil, more reliant on clean energy produced by workers like you.

Care to elaborate? How is it we as Americans are spoiled? This I gotta hear?
Is it because we have pride, in our homes, cars etc? You define pride as spoiled children? Is that a correct synopsis?edit on 7-4-2011 by Whereweheaded because: (no reason given)

And don't worry about the media saying "Oh, so-and-so can't win". When they say that, that's exactly what they're TRYING to accomplish. If everyone votes their conscience for the best candidate out there, regardless of what they're told, you'd be surprised who can win.

If it makes you fell any better, which i doubt, I dont believe that it matters who is in office. I believe that the President of the US and most other foreign Presidents, answer to a higher authority.
Call it Illuminati, Bohemian Club, Bilderbergers or the Masons, I dont know, who it is and it doesnt really matter because there is nothing that can be done about it.
I believe that this was happening slowly (frog in boiling water) up until the beginning of the the decade but then they got impatient and decided to put it in the "fast trac"
No, i have no proof, yes it is all speculation but it is what I believe, so take it for what its worth.

The same election system process is the same in eupore and elsewhere basically you can vote but your vote is meaningless.
The elites already know who to choice.

Did you actually expect him to fix all of our problems in one 4yr term? How naive are you, it took way longer than that to get us into this mess.
And *gasp* he actually said you don't have a right to complain about gas when you drive a gas guzzling behemoth? The man calls for accountability and you get offended?
Obama didn't drive this country into the ground, we did, through inaction, complacency, and only looking out for our own self interest instead of looking at the big picture. Nothing in this world happens in a vacuum, yet everyone wants to pretend that it does. Before obama we had bush, who managed to turn the entire world against us after we had all of their support following 9/11...say what you will about bush, that takes serious talent. Before bush was clinton, who spent practically his entire 2 terms in scandal. And before clinton you had bush sr.and reagan who basically gave this country to the corporations.
But in the end you know who's fault it really is?
OURS, the american people are to blame because we let it all happen right in front of our faces with no more protest than the slightest of whimpers.
Man up, take responsibility for your actions, or at least quit placing the blame on others. Now take your hummer home tonight, pick up some mcdonalds slop(with the free apple pie), park the sob in your mcmansion driveway, take your viagra, screw your plastic surgery wife after she takes her painpill/cocktail combo, watch your"reality" shows, and then wake up in the morning to go find someone else to blame for your problems.
