Reading this thread scares the holy hell out of me. I have read the entire thread a couple of times over, and honestly cannot believe some of the
comments in here. We elected a man two years ago, yeah he looked different, brought a different message than most, but he has not fulfilled all of
his promises, so he is the anti-christ?
This country is so divided, the fringe have taken control on both sides, and it sometimes makes me sad, that I gave seven years of my life, to defend
your right to spew this crap. What we need is those of us in the middle to stand up and take control, get rid of the fringes on both sides, and
finally do some things in this country that make some sense.
I don't want my government run by evangelical christians who want to legislate morality. I don't want people starving in the streets, I don't want
people to not have access to healthcare, I want people to work, I want them to be able to take pride in there work, no matter what it is. On the
flipside, I want corporations to be able to make profits, but not on the back of low wages, ecological destruction, or safety hazards.
This is not about right/left, democrat/republican, this is about common sense. It is about time that those that still have some left stand up and
shout louder than the fringe. Obama is no more a socialist than Bush was a Nazi, and both have been hollered in this thread.
Yes I am a social liberal, I think you should be able to marry anybody you want to, I think everyone should be treated the same, and I think we are
all human beings with rights. I am also a fiscal conservative, people should work for the money they receive, if I have to drug test for my job, you
should have to drug test for welfare, or food stamps. The budget needs to be balanced, lets start with killing the fraud, waste, and abuse at all
I am scared for our country, but calling people names or making fun of the president is not going to solve anything.
