Obama Reelection

It is too bad Obama was re-elected for a second term. I strongly hope all business investors decide to pull their money out of companies and future deals that create jobs and thus causing mass unemployment. And there will not be a second surrender signing at the Appomattox Courthouse, next time.

The best segregation is financial segregation.

They are calling the

They are calling the election for Obama. The Republicans only have themselves to blame for not choosing a better candidate. Given Obama's track record this should have been a landslide for the Republican candidate. But the Republicans did a poor job of picking someone to run against Obama.

I hate election years. I

I hate election years. I hate campaign ads on the television and radio. The signs don't bother me except when they are placed in such a way that makes me unable to see oncoming traffic when trying to turn out of my neighborhood.

I hate the media doing everything they can to influence the process. Fox News showed their true colors this year when they joined the mainstream media in trying to silence Ron Paul. Fox News is not "fair and balanced". Contrary to what many may believe, Fox News is not conservative. Fox News is just a mouthpiece for the republican party. I will say this for Fox News--at least they are reporting on the voter intimidation in Philadelphia. At least they are airing the story about the poll worker in High Point, NC "helping" a woman, who was unsure of what to do, by telling her to push the buttons for the democratic candidates.

I hate that people consider the elections to be a two-party vote and that those who vote for third party candidates are throwing away their votes. I voted third party for the fourth straight election. If everyone would vote for the candidate who best reflects their beliefs and opinions, then we would wind up with better people in office. But, everyone is stuck on "I've got to vote for who I think will win" or "I am going with the lesser of two evils". If you vote for the lesser of two evils, then you are still voting for evil.

This year the Republicans cemented my decision to become an unaffiliated voter. Their treatment of Ron Paul at the convention was a downright disgrace. He was a viable candidate and had some of the delegates, but the Republicans were apparently afraid that he could pull an upset, but why should they let their agenda stand in the way of the Constitutional electoral process?

This whole election has been sickening. We are doomed regardless of which idiot wins the presidential election. We are just less doomed if Romney wins.

Election

I am so glad that its over and I wish that the election season could be scaled down to six months tops. I am sick of politics and politicians.

I am sick of religion telling me how to vote and sick of religion pushing their agenda on the public, stay out of politics!

I am sick of the politician using religion to get elected, saying anything and everything as if they actually do anything they profess. I don't care which religion they are and don't even want to know but I would like them to do something for most of the people instead of just doing for those who donates money to them.

Our country is never going to make any real head way until we leave religion in the church and out of the politics.

Political Litter & Robo Calls

I am sick to death of these ego-driven politicians littering our landscapes with their signs and invading our privacy with their robo calls.

Politicians (how I hate them) are getting away with murder. They litter with impunity and they get around the DO-NOT-CALL LIST because they voted that politicians were exempt from the list. Exempt.

Please tell politicians what you think of their litter and robo calls.

Change in Power

It will be going a lot better once the "MUSLIM TERRORIST", lying sack of crap is out of the White House. And yes I am talking about HUSSIEN OBAMA.

Live from the front lines of real democracy!

1SG America

Real democracy?

Say all the hate speak you want. As a citizen of our country you're afforded that right under the first amendment. Don't expect to be respected for it though.

Read some stuff you posted recently to some others. Noticed that you threatened them because they didn't see it your way. A "real" democracy runs on consensus (you may have to look that word up), not violence. Dictatorships run on violence. Sounds to me that you're actually the kind of person who's a threat to a "real" democracy.

To quote what someone posted the other day: "You are an embarrassment". You embarrass both yourself and your democracy.

(Wouldn't be surprised if you prove me right by now posting a threatening reply to me as well)

power

1sg you are some kind of jack@@ssssssssss.Its ok to vote for whomever you chose.Hate and disrepect is something different.Even though the country was built on hate the United States grew into a great country.I guess as long as there are people such as yourself hatred will always be.Its the President of the United States President Barack Obama.Again you are a total Jack@ssssssssss.Sound much like my the 1SG from Germany and he was a jack@SSSSSSSS.

Change of Power

I hope you get what you deserve. Hate brings hate hope you enjoy it.

HATE??

Nowhere did I use HATE. These are pure Facts. All you have to do is open your eyes and ears. It is all around, just put your crack pipe down long enough to see past the haze and return your entitlement check that Hussein gave you and step into the real world.

1SG America

hate

YOU just have to read and the hate jumps out at you .I work eight hours a day five days a week with health insurance,paid vaction,and get a retirement check for my twenty 20 years of service in the United States Army.Entitlmrnt check please.FYI i have been voting since 1976.Never smoked crack before in my life.Cognac yea.Now you have a great day.

You and those who share your

You and those who share your views pretty much represent the total ignorance in this part of North Carolina. You could be a poster child for Planned Parenthood.

Hey 1SG America. We have an

Hey 1SG America. We have an intelligent articulate Black President. Maybe you are on too much crystal meth to comprehend the fact that in order to rise to where the President has risen to takes a huge amount of intellect poise and leadership. The good news is regardless of your aknowledgement or not he is in the history books and you can't control it. So your kids grandkids or whomever your decendents are will read about President Obama and his acomplishments.

Obama is not "black"

Please, seriously, we do not have a "Black" President. Obama is not black or white, he was born of both and is therefore: a "Mulato". He would have earned a lot more respect from Americans (as a whole) if he would not have played the race card.

McFly

Apparently the flux capacitor is working again, because I've been transported back to the 50's when "Mulato" was actually an accepted term. Oh, Wait. They also used the term race card. Whew, I'm back to the present.

Being President of the

Being President of the United States isn't being about being in history books, it's about what the President does for the country and we the people that live in it. There may be some accomplishments that he has made but there are also some disappointments as well. Doesnt matter who wins as long as the people (no matter the rich, middle class or lower income)can come out ahead and not suffer any longer like some of us have. People lose track in what's important these days. I dont want to see my kids suffer like I have had to do and I get out and work and still have a hard time. I want my children to have a good future to look forward too and WHOEVER wins can control that not history books.........

He is by no means intelligent

He is by no means intelligent, If that was the case he would not need a monitor every time he speaks to the public. The only reason he your prez is that ignorant Blacks and more ignorant white people voted for him. And you are right, we will read about an incompetent BLACK President that was the WORST person to ever sit in the white house. Once it is reviled that he was not in fact a US citizen, all you Hussein supports will quietly go back in the closet where you belong. Now you put that in your Meth pipe and smoke it Reta$%.

1SG America

By no means intelligent

" Once it is [reviled] that he was not in fact a US citizen, all you Hussein [supports] will quietly go back in the closet"

Dude, your kidding right? The word is "revealed", not "reviled". The word is "supporters", not "supports". You do know don't you that almost all public speakers, including news anchors, use monitors, don't you?

Amusing that you're calling someone else "by no means intelligent" when you personally can't even spell, put together a proper sentence or even understand how monitors are used by public speakers in the real world.

How could you possibly feel you were qualified to comment on anyone's intelligence when you've proven with your actual words that yours is so obviously flawed?

BLACK PANTHERS NEED TO GO!!!!!

I will tell you what I DON'T enjoy...the Black Panthers at the same voting site they were near my hometown in Philly four years ago! DON'T YOU DARE try to intimidate people again!! Are you afraid your boy won't win on his own merit? You have to commit crime for him to win? This is AMERICA--not some third world country. As long as I draw breath, it will not BECOME a third world county.

need to go

Have you ever heard of the klan, Jim Crow or the many test they wanted black people to take before they would let them vote and when they pass the test they still couldn't vote. If they were there it wasn't to stop you from voting.

Tweety...

Tweety11, Maybe you should take the blinders off. One does not justify the other. Do you think that is acceptable behavior? Do you condone voter intimidation? (And you know that's what it is --they're not having tea.) You also might want to knock that chip off of your shoulder.

We got rid of the Klan. Why

We got rid of the Klan. Why don't you get rid of your Black Panthers? And they ARE THERE to INTIMIDATE.

Why

Got rid of the klan what rock have you been under.You say that because the sheets are gone.You really are at a lost.The klan are alive and well.Just ask them(try google)

Two wrongs don't make a right

So, because there were bad things that happened to black people in the past, it is okay for black people to commit crimes and voter intimidation?

Wake Up People

Ignorance is bliss and there are a lot of blissful people in this world. If people could see past the color of someone's skin they could see who the right person for the job is. If you are a part of the middle class be you African American, Caucasian or otherwise Mitt Romney (regardless of what he says in the public eye) is not for you. Wake up and look past a person race to see what their real intentions are and you would see that President Obama IS the BEST MAN FOR THE JOB
