I forgot Oregon was on the ballot... yeah for Mass it's "medicinal" but for all intents and purposes it's legalized.

The people have spoken. If the people don't speak for you, then by all means leave. It's your right.



It is over the debt and wars stupid and the continue abuse of the constitution.Has nothing to do with a black president and the gay marriage is being done by states.Has to do with the CIA lying and the Feds lying and Obama and Bush putting this country into massive debt.

We want our Liberty, God, Guns....you know, everything you people hate.


I don't hate liberty, god, or guns. I do hate that you capitalize them though. They are not proper nouns, as much as you might like them to be.


God is a proper noun....

Strange, I thought that Barak had a white mother

You also failed to reiterate that abortion is legal, that the 2nd amendment will continue
to be whittled away, the country is being shoved closer to an economic cliff and the Constitution is under attack.
I'm sure that you are so proud of these accomplishments.


He is black when he wants to be...

I agree that our country is heading in the right direction, especially after we defeated the Republican platform that would have taken this country backwards. This talk of succession is worrisome. Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it.


So what direction is that? Everyone is saying, "let's go back to Clinton taxes...is that not backwards, or because it is a democrat president that's an ok backwards?

Let's move forward right up to 20+ trillion in debt...that will fix us for sure. Yep Obama is going to fix all that....right....

I need to ask you all a question or two...

Do you guys see that the big game is almost over with the deficit, and that taxing just exactly as Obama wants to do accounts for another 100 billion, about 1.5 plus trillion short?

This is what we want to talk about...all that boring, really don't care crap, like abortions, birth control, gays etc are all social issues that really belongs at the state level AND Obama knows this and will not do a damn thing in those directions.

No, most of the people mad over this election are mad because their god, gun, tax cut, and military worshipping cult didn't win.

The real America huh?


Oh yeah the real America where blacks are only counted as 3/5 of a person, where they must sit on the back of the bus.

Where gays are looked down upon because it's wrong according to Jesus! Where the only purpose of Women is to cook and to raise the kids!

Where weed is punishable by up to 30 years in prison!

Oh yeah you're a real American!

Agreed. It seems that as time goes on more and more both sides are getting more radical, dogmatic and begrudging when their camp loses the election. I think it time that the Republicans move off of their archaic social views and the crazy stance on never raising taxes and Democrats need to realize that entitlements will bankrupt our country. The only way to avoid the fiscal cliff or cliff-geddon is for both sides to start slaying some scared cows and move to the middle.

If you're trying to argue we don't have a black president you'll have to do better than that.


He looks black on the outside, the white racist half is hiding on the inside AND HE IS COMING FOR YOU!!!

Seriously
Just wait. The next two years will tell it all. Have fun.

If they do secede who's going to pay your bills?

Please allow me. So, if this was the Deep South in, oh lets say 1932, which water fountain and restroom would the man that is now our president be using in public?

JEEEEEEEEEEEEESUS H. Christ!!! Apparently a whole host of people have no freaking clue how this country was founded!!!


I posted this in another thread and it bears repeating here (To educate the ignorant!):

First of all, the "United States of America" is EXACTLY what it is titled - a UNITED STATES. Each state is a sovereign entity that has entered into agreement with the Federal Government to be a part of these United States. The 10th Amendment speaks specifically to state's rights and GUARANTEES that the power remain the sole discretion of the State, NOT the federal government. In fact, the Constitution of The United States grants very specific powers to the federal government and nothing more than what is stated in the Constitution. In essence, the Constitution is the contract between the sovereign citizens of the several states and the federal government. Currently, the federal government is in horrible breach of contract rendering it null and void.

Given that there are people waking up and taking notice of this, one shouldn't be surprised to see a "Free" people working to ensure that their freedom and liberty are kept intact. The last time this happened, Abraham Lincoln violated the sovereignty of several of the states and imposed the federal government's will on them militarily. I understand that he is celebrated by today's standards, but that is simply a part of the propaganda taught in schools to give the illusion that the federal government is the supra power and not the states. The REAL issue was not slavery, as is the propagandist approach, but rather the secession of several of the states who felt that the federal government was imposing upon their freedom.

Lastly, has anyone looked at an election map??? The only places advocating for the liberalism we presently have in office are in the urban centers - and even those are fairly split. I say give the West coast and New England to the liberals. Let the rest of us enjoy or freedom and liberty in "Flyover Country" free from such intrusion. It would only take a matter of months for those liberal bastions to be bankrupt and, conversely, only a matter of months for the rest of us to have balanced budgets, fair taxation and smaller government. THEN let's see where people want to live!!!

We already have a spot and it is here! If you advocate for Communism, Socialism et al... there are plenty of places on Earth faltering under those systems - go there!!! Don't F**k up a good thing so you can get your handouts.

There is a reason the Founding Father's determined that only property owners could vote and we are seeing evidence of their wisdom today. Ben Franklin so wisely noted, "Once the people realize that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic".

The ignorance regarding this topic simply amazes me!!!!!!!!

Since it appears to be an ongoing troll war... fine I am in ... I should not engage in battles of wit with unarmed people but sometimes I do fish with dynamite to... so...



The talk of succession is foolish on two points...

1) liberals do not control enough weapons on an overall basis to stop anything... thats right how will you enforce your opinions when the people with the weapons realize your unarmed

2) how will your economies survive if you do decide to say fine, here go... every state that is not liberal may leave....

Guess which states the businesses will move to... you gonna force them to stay... force people to work


So how do you have this great Liberal state planned?

People like you slay me. This country was founded by a bunch of white people that came here in boats, murdered the indigenous people then claimed it as their own. Like it was an entitlement. And that feeling of entitlement continues on to this very day among the shallow gene pool crowd.

I have to admit that I would follow the news coming out of the new country of dumbassistan very closely. It would be pure comedy gold and very entertaining. But then again I like tragicomedy.

Oh lookie... An unsuccessful attempt at wit and wisdom.


Hasty Generalization much??? Or only on Mondays?


I'm not one to engage in a battle of wits with one who is unarmed. Have a nice day!

Good points.

Last time we couldn't find any common ground and states got in an uproar I think it led to the Civil War. If I remember history that was a pretty messy affair and one I'm sure neither North or South (or left or right in this case) would want to repeat.

Both sides need to give their respective trees a good shake to dislodge the nuts that occupy the extreme of ends of the branches, tone down the rhetoric because we are all this mess together even if we disagree on a few things, tell our respective loud mouths to shut up and figure out some common ground to get the debt down, the wars ended, the economy turned around and the country back on track..

I have to laugh, cliche much? Of course wing nuts have never been known for originality. And you would do well in this case to not try and match wit or intelligence with me. I am pretty sure we could drop the 1 in front my iq score and I would still be able to hold my ground. Of course if I could dumb myself down enough I might have a chance to understand how the mouth breathers among us think, and I would like that. Because reading posts like yours reminds me of going to the zoo. But it does make me feel dirty to slum at this level. I think I will go wash in my nice clean well regulated water supply.
