  1. My congratulations to President-Elect Obama and his supporters. I opposed his election because of his politics and mystery on his associates and beliefs. I believe we, as a nation, took a “leap of faith” on an untested and unknown candidate but we did and I can only hope that he will lead the nation properly and be strong. My fear is that he has put himself into a precarious position and his supporters have done the same. I heard black voters remarking that now they won’t have to worry about putting gas in their car and paying their mortgages.I heard the MSM telling Republicans that the country has spoken and there is a mandate to help him succeed because the people want him to succeed… I guess the country didn’t speak in 2004. My point is that they are already starting and I think the “R” word is on the tip of their tongues the minute someone disagrees with Obama. I urge Obama supporters to let the MSM know that the “R” word is done and over, that we have elected a black man to the highest, most powerful position on the face of the planet and that if he did it then anyone else can do it. If they start that crap then I don’t think white voters who supported him will be so eager to support him again and those of us willing to give him a chance will feel like we’ve been slapped in the face. I urge black voters not to expect the impossible from the guy, politics doesn’t work that way. God Bless him and our country and lets pray that he has the strength and courage to lead us in the right direction.

  2. Great comment & post, Dave and CP. I have to admit I personally have extremely low expectations that the always hair-trigger insinuation of racism will subside in any way at all. Recall, this is a party that has been wiling to imply, when it served them, that BILL CLINTON is a racist! I fear it is an indispensible tool for that side, a key to maintaining Blacks as a significant Democrat Party faction. As I’ve commented elsewhere, my suspicion is that the mindset will emerge not as “This is a country that has elected a Black president,” but rather “This is a country which fought tooth and nail to deny the presidency to a Black man.” I could be wrong; hope so.

  3. Yesterday, November 4th 2008, citizens (and some illegal residents) participated in our unique process of the peaceful transfer of power in the government of the United States of America. I am grateful to live (and have defended for the past 21 years) a nation that does this every two and four years. It is one of the main reasons we have been and will remain the greatest nation on earth. The campaign process is a fight out among the candidates. It is supposed to be their primary effort to win the hearts and minds of the people of the United States. Since 1789 we have had this great experiment of a government that is by, for and of The People.

    This election year has saddened me though. It was election for the hearts and not the minds of the people. A majority of Citizens of every race, color, creed voted not based upon rational thought but upon emotions. Whether it was pride in the first African-American candidate, or past slavery guilt for the first major party African-American candidate in our nation’s history, it was most definitely not by logic.

    I was watching the television last night and exit polls showed that 71% of voters believed that President-elect Obama would raise their taxes, and a significantly lower percentage believed that Senator McCain would raise their taxes. That, coupled with the exit poll data that showed the Economy was the number 1 issue on voters’ minds are incongruous. History has proven that raising taxes in an economy such as the one we have today will only worsen matters. The two stances do not go hand in hand. That demonstrates that our President-elect was voted into office based upon pride among those of the same ethnic background and Caucasian guilt over slavery as the major contributing factors. No ifs, ands, or buts’ about it. Most people forget that our nation, our Republic, this great experiment in self-government, almost perished in the war fought to end slavery. Most citizens of this great country do not recognize the fact that Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines serving under the flag of the United States of America died ending slavery over 140 years ago. There is should be no quilt owed to anybody, but maybe there should be a debt of gratitude?

    Another item that hard working, tax paying citizens across the fruited plain should be made aware of. If you look at the county by county electoral map of the 2008 election, something should jump right off the page at you. That is the fact that the President-elect won every major urban center and New England. Data will show that the voting populations in these areas are those that receive the most government aid. Not the self-starters, hard-working, independent minded people that reflect the views and values this great nation was founded upon. Little government, no taxation without representation, self reliance are the values our Founding Fathers held.

    What tax paying citizens of the United States of America should wake up and realize we are facing almost the exact same circumstances we faced at the birth of our nation. There is, by way of apathy mostly, very little representation for the majority of tax payers because those people that actually pay taxes in this country have become a minority whose concerns are not taken seriously by our elected representatives. These elected representatives are using the revenue paid into the U.S. Treasury by tax payers to “purchase” the votes of those people who do not pay taxes. This is a slippery slope down which all Americans should fear treading. That slippery slope is one that ended mankind’s first great experimentation into Democracy, ancient Greece.

    It turns out that in 1776 we traded one tyrant hundreds of miles away for hundreds of tyrants just a few miles away. A peaceful revolution is needed. One that will only be accomplished when tax payers in this country wake up and say “No More!” to our government’s following a course so far away from what made this country great for over 200 years. A course correction (peaceful revolution) is needed before our ship founders in the shoal waters of liberalism and socialism. Too many countries are already there as either rotting and decaying carcasses, or vessels waiting for their citizens to find a way off.

    For now all I can say to all of my fellow citizens, hold on to your wallets for the next four years. If our course correction does not happen soon, out great experiment in a representative republic will crash and founder on the shoals and we can only blame ourselves. The Declaration of Independence and Constitution are the greatest documents every produced by mankind. The apathetic lack of participation by the primary producers, job makers, and income earners of our country will doom us to the ash heap of history.

    Well effin said. I want to believe that Obama won’t be as bad as some people think, but I’m quite sure, that at best, he won’t be as good as most people hope he will be.

    I wish this site had come out earlier, I had some Obamabot friends finding out that they had big differences with Obama’s positions:

    Years ago I was knocked off the voting rolls here in this very Blue City when I was a Republican, today I found out I was knocked off as an Un-Affiliated. Next time I should register as a Democrat, I bet I won’t get knocked off then.

    The biggest dangers come from the Left anyway, my votes in this Blue State’s closed primaries would be more important there.

    Telling Moonbats I’m a Democrat would stop some in their tracks too, maybe making it easier to chip away at the false veneer of so-called ‘progressivism’.

    Let’s hope he does well, at least not too badly, with the least amount of despair possible. May God Bless and help guide President Obama. And may God Bless and save America! Keep the faith!
    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe hates
    history either way

    America WILL survive
    we MUST still fight for freedom

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    ELECT socialism

    let the young people see
    survive the false promises

    creating MORE jobs
    will spread NEW wealth around
    – it is NOT finite

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    give up the search for truth

    stop trying to show people
    how the world really works

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    Bush was worse than Hitler

    and Stalin and Mao
    and Castro combined

    All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. If there is no freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.
