I'm devastated, and not because "they" won.

Because we have lost the core of what made this nation great.

I am mourning the loss of a better time, of what once was.

What we have now is a broke country, where kids can't play outside, where there is nothing but garbage on TV, where people on welfare and who are wishing for Santa Claus now dictate this country's future.

It is a sad day.

Yes, you are correct.

You can't beat Santa Claus.

Wow, you sound like the usual Fox News correspondent.

Everything you mentioned was a Bush initiative. He bankrupted your country and effectively forced the recession into motion when he left office.

Besides, most of the things you mentioned were in existence before Obama. Reality TV has been around before even Bush.

Nothing to do with racism more likely the continuous relentless gutting of the Constitution and the

ignorance of the economic principles America was built on.

Here, red means Republican and blue means Democrat. (But I laughed at the cows and buildings comment somebody made!)

Ah... then why would gnosticagnostic have been happy that Obama won, and that there are lots more women coming into politics. If thats a typical republican/conservative veiw, then I am a monkeys uncle.

I didn't get the impression that she was being sarcastic about being happy, so I think she was saying that she was relieved because she is living in an area where she feels surrounded by Republican pride and dogma, and it's easy to get discouraged when everyone around you thinks differently than you do and you worry that maybe the rest of the country is like them instead of like you. Just my guess.

Speaking as a British person, I often wonder how Americans feel when these huge elections, in the most powerful nation in the West, finish. How do you feel about this result? I hear that although Obama won the election, the Republicans did enough to make things hell in the senate, and put stumbling blocks in the way of Obamas plans.

How does it feel to live in America during an election year? How did you find your communities during this process? Were they united or highly divided? I would really love to hear the American ATSers veiw of the process, and of the result, so please...

....Your thoughts?


Awful, simply awful. I'm so ashamed of this country right now.

Another 10,000 rounds of ammo ordered!

We may now be the most divided nation on Earth.
I don't see it changing.
Obama sure inherited one hell of a mess this time.

...and we definitely do not like war. For us Obama's policies are very agreeable with our own ideals,,,

I think if we could have Obama after you, we would almost unanimously vote him in as our Prime Minister, Canadian or not.


Then you could be involved in our wars too.

I cannot see how your nation is the most divided. You ever hear of Syria? Libya? Afghanistan? THESE are divided nations, and you can tell how divided they are, because the bodies pile up in three foot drifts, the tinkle of brass falling to the ground and the slam of bullets flying out of barrels is never far away, nor the deeper detonations of mines, artillery, and aircraft launching missile volleys.

Your nation hasnt had a significant division since your civil war, and it should think itself very lucky about that. If you are really under the impression that your nation has become so sundered, then you need a perspective check something awful!

I am not saying things arent bad for the USA right now, but what I am saying is that sensationalising the rift is neither accurate, nor helpful. If it were that bad, you wouldnt be on the internet right now, you would be on the rifle range instead.

We can see how Wall Street feels today:
The Dow Jones is falling today of the results of this election.
www.reuters.com...

Obama did not win by a landslide. There is a strong force in this nation that knows there is a problem, but Obama's people worked the areas they knew would count and pushed that electoral count creatively.

Another 4 years of what we went through the past 4 is not going to be good for this country. Our country is going to be more in debt, more people will be jobless and homeless, and our quality of life will continue to drop. This country is doomed. We can not survive 4 more years of this.

How I feel is hopeless and discouraged.

4 more wasted years, for a bunch of liberals wanting their interests catered to while the contry goes insolvent.

Social issues are a luxury of a state that can pay its bills.

Terrible. Depressed. You will notice the stock market has dropped several hundred points. I know what I will be doing. Less. I won;t be working as hard. I was set to open up a new restaurant that would have emplyed 50 or so people. Those jobs will now not be created because, frankly, there is no incentive to do so. We will be having another recession here shortly. Plan on it and act accordingly.

For the last 30 days we have been bombed daily with phone calls. They want to know who your voting for. TV adds, radio...bill boards...the newspaper. I am so sick of this crap. Used to be...nobodys damm business who you are voting for, what happened to that. My parents taught me that it was rude to ask and that is personal. If they want you to know, they will tell you. As far as Obama...i feel bad for him. He has NO support from the other side at all. We are not going anywhere as long as this goes on. But ..now he has been elected to a second term, maybe this will make them think. The people know this is going on, yet they bring back the same bunch. The Rep. are screwing up the works. It's pretty much the same mess it was last year. But...nobody got any picture's of the first lady...bare-assed !!!

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...

No it won't. People are too busy being entertained or won't care much when the "Black Friday" sales come and Christmas rolls around.

If some of you feel it's that bad in the U.S. because of one man, there are a bunch of other countries out there you can move to.
