I'm floored by these comments. I thought the majority folks on ATS weren't "sheeple", "denied ignorance", and were of above average intelligence.
Boy was I wrong.
Ron Paul could have been elected, and nothing would have changed. Bush wasn't solely responsible for what went down in 2008, it took many many years,
and many many people all in collusion to build up the bubble that eventually burst, and put the US in pointless wars that ran up the deficit, so let's
quit blaming him too...
I guess people forget about Congress which also has a say, and that lobbyist, blue bloods, and the like really run things in this country anyway.
Give me a break... Instead of crying that your man didn't win, or that Obama is president (which won't personally affect many of you besides shedding
your tears, and whine with your cheese). Get up and do something about improving things. Your local elections affect you much more than the
Presidential election ever could anyway...
OK now that's out of the way. I feel that no matter who is elected President the country is going to go where it's going to go anyway. Congress is
divided again so expect more filibustering, while they twiddle their thumbs, and take more vacations. Expect more pointless conflicts in the near
future. Expect no end to the deficit, and another round or two of QE...
