Yes, I am only 16, however I have listened to every speech, I do know what is going on in this country and would not have voted for Obama. I'm going to keep it there because I do not want to get torn apart by you voters.

I say Ralph Nader for president

I also find it funny that Obama couldn't get a job at the FBI or be a presidential body guard because of hes connections to Ayers, but he can run for presidential office and win ?
I agree with both of you, I think America is headed for trouble. I didn't realize that he couldn't become a presidential body guard, and I really can believe he can't do that but he can BE the president

if only you could vote...

i'm having an extremely difficult time finding any info at all on the poll numbers for anybody not republican or democrat. it's pissing me off. i'm worried about where this nation is headed, not because of who got elected, but because of the clear power of the media over public perception. (perhaps why obama got elected?)

I am utterly disgusted.

When this country goes to Hell, I'm not going with it.
QFT <3. if he had come across clean, i wouldnt have a problem with it. i even agree with SOME of his views, but the fact that his whole campaign was a bunch of lies ruined it for me. but that doesnt mean i won't enjoy my Obama-money, unless that whole tax promise was a lie too...

thank you. he may be the leader of our nation, but that doesnt mean we have to listen to him. last time i checked, the only people that HAVE TO respect him is the military, because he's now technically a senior officer and leader. im going to withhold further judgment until he actually does (or fails to do) something during his term.

You have to realize that the majority of the people in the US are sheep. They are waiting to be told what to do. The whole Democratic party platform tells you that. Remember Hillary's "it takes a village"? They want some one to take care of them and some one to blame. It doesn't matter whether or not its right, just that they don't have to think about it. Think about it, people no longer have to take responsibility for their own actions. Its the cigarette manufactures fault they got cancer, its the gun manufacturers fault some one was shot. The media will run the stories that get them circulation. No one wants to read that a person said something was their own fault. They want gossip and hearsay. Anyway, thats just my opinion, love it or hate it, its mine and its my right to express it.


Sniper, While it is true that the military has to respect the position of the people appointed over them, there is nothing that says you have to respect the person. You have to follow their orders and can't make derogatory statements about them, but you don't have to respect them. I met plenty of Officers i had no respect for, but followed their orders.

Default Re: So I guess we have a new president

I'm interested to see how this plays out, now that we're in it neck deep. The "truth squads", the "Civilian Defense Network", the nationwide healthcare, the social programs allowing people to not work, the "it might not happen in one term, but over many" speech last night (could this be the end of the two term president as we know it?) - it's sounding so familiar. You know, like this has been done before. (Check your history, and I mean further back that just WWII...though the business in WWII followed the same pattern.)

All I'm going to say is all you guys with registered firearms might want to be careful - sometimes radical leaders spewing "change" like to "take care" of those that might cause tension...I'm not talking about him taking away your weapons - I'm just saying.

While I'm not so bold as to say it's the end of the world (that's saying that America is the end all, be all to the world or that we're the glue that's held this world together and that's just blind ignorance - I'd rather just say it's the end of America as we've known it to this point. Now, whether that's good or bad, only time will tell. I certainly hope it's for the better, but at the moment, I don't know.)

Yes, I still say that the anti-christ/Obama stuff is still compelling and if it IS true, then I'm saying it's all predetermined and we pretty much screwed the pooch. But, I also don't want to come across as a religious zealot looking fo the end of times, either.

Oh, I also don't think that Americans are sheep. Several are, for sure, but I think that's just a widespread generalization I think for the most part, they're ignorant (not stupid - ignorant. There's a difference) and misguided. The media and entertainment outlets are largely to blame for that. What does it tell you when CELEBRITIES are a power in the politics of a country?

There's no way that anyone will tell me that Spike Lee or Matt Damon (for example) are better men than me because they've been in a couple of movies and directed a few more. Yet they focused more on him last night and this morning on the news, along with the other celebrities. Um, who cares? I find it ridiculous they make 500 times my salary and all they do is repeat words that someone else wrote for them.

Understand, this was NOT a democrat/republican thing for me. This was a moral/doing the right thing/doing the best thing for me and my family thing - and this year was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I literally did not know who I was voting for until I stepped into the booth. Then I found out we didn't have a place to write in a vote - that sucked, though I still didn't know who I would vote for.

Speech over - I had a long, very hard day (my back is killing me - I think it's stress from work this year). At one time, I actually thought of running for an office - not so sure it's a great thing anymore.

mentioning the write-in ballot made me think of something, vike. if you wrote "Otter," they'd probably think you were illiterate and meant "other"
