ROFL. Laughed so hard when I read this. So much proof in this post that what you watch truly affects how you perceive reality. I can't even imagine what religious beliefs you have.

I have no shame in saying that I didn't vote on the other hand. America is screwed with a 2 party system. One is horrendous, the other is bad. But, not for the reasons as posted above, that just makes you look so incredibly ignorant. That said, of the two choices that were sadly presented, this was the better of the two... by such an incredible margin. (Unless you want to go to war over religion I guess) Me? --> Moving out of USA next year if all goes correct. By the age of 20 I already know I no longer want to live here. It's terrible.

Edit: to the poster above. If you think someone who has ended a war that was started in the last president's term, and is doing his best to avoid nuclear meltdown with Pakistan is somehow magically going to flip a table and send us running to war I have no clue what to tell you. Romney on the other hand has openly said he would take stern action if elected. Not sure what news sources you get your information from but I encourage those who feign knowledge on this very important subject to go read independent news sources such as Raw Story, or The Young Turks where you get real information. Don't stop there though, gather the information and then make your own decision. Listening to places like Fox News, MSNBC, or any other media outlet that is dictated by money has BLATANT bias to one side or another. Don't be fooled. Educate yourself.

and sigh, I guess I'll edit #2:
Furthering what I said about believing what certain media sources tell you about certain ideologies being "wrong"... perhaps you should research them yourself. As a philosophy major I often find myself face palming at the things people say in terms of things such as "socialism is bad" "communism is bad" etc. The ideology itself cannot be bad, but rather, the person who enacts it can corrupt it. Like, do yourself a favor and go research what these things are about. Can you literally tell me what would be wrong with a strong government dictating how centralized, equal distribution of goods would be bad? There isn't anything bad about that, yet, we have North Korea. So what you're really meaning to say about these subjects is "I believe this person will enact this in a terrible way." Not "HOLY SHIT SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM RUUUUUUUUUN" -_- It'd be like saying - If everyone had equal access to free medical care it would be terrible. What world do you live in? Have you seen Canada lately?

I can't say how relieved I am that Obama won. Abortion and gay rights aren't the only issues to vote on folks! You should vote on all the issues and for which president you agree with the most. Conservatives will always say they are against gay rights and abortion but guess what? They haven't done shit about it since abortion became legal. There will always be more important things. Oh and one other thing. Trickle down effect doesn't work. If it did, you would have seen a rise in companies hiring during the Bush years cause he gave major tax cuts but you didn't. Just saying, our grandparents wanted a liberal president when the great depression hit because republicans don't think the government should help out in those situations and it was a liberal who brought us out of the great depression and a republican who took us off the gold standard and put us on credit. Yeah I really want Romney, a 4 faced politician in office. At least Obama stays with his views and doesn't go the exact opposite every other day.


I guess you have not been watching what is going on. He says transparency and says executive privilege about things he does not want people to know. He told us it was not a terrorist attack when all of our intelligence knew it was, and they had live feed of what was going on. He talked to people in New Orleans about how they did not get the funding that they deserved and he would've done better, but he was one of the people who voted to not give them support. He said not a dime of tax increase on the middle class but pushes for Obama Care and it is a tax...who do you think is going to pay for that tax...the list can go on. I can understand venting, but before you go all rampage, look up the facts and stopped being brainwashed by someone who is a politician. So they are all hiding behind a mask. You say there is other things to vote on...but then you went on a banter and did not explain what else is there to vote on?

Impeach the president!

It would not matter who won the presidency because the US can no longer sustain their current course on spending without creating hyperinflation or a severe depression, both very bad news. Both parties are to blame. George Bush seemed to think there was no end to spending and increased the national debt by $5 trillion during his 8 years in office. In less than 4 years in office, Barack Obama managed to add $6 trillion more to our national debt.

Goodbye middle class citizens.. We'll all be lower class or upper class.

For those of you working for low wages you soon wont be working at all...

When Obamacare kicks in there will be no local small businesses left...

If you think gas is expensive now just wait til you see what'll happen in these four years...

4 years has passed, same president, senate, congress. Nothing has changed economy is just going to get worse. Up and coming 3rd world country here we come.

Impeach the god dang president!

"Any existence deprived of freedom is a kind of death." ~Gen Michel Aoun

If you think having the government deciding how the country ran is a good idea then you should go to another country with less freedoms than America I think you will like it there. You can do whatever they tell you to do and you will love it. While your doing that I will enjoy the freedoms of this Country. Also my opinion is if you did not vote then I do not think you should have a say in what goes on in this country. But hey that is why we have these freedoms. And you say you are an intelligent person I think you are a bit ignorant yourself. But again my opinion. Oh and by the way any media outlet is backed up by money and political bs...so please do not act like you found some magical media outlet that is neutral, that is funny. But I have met lots of people from other countries and have told me they liked Communism and Socialism and they said it was great not how it is portrayed in most media. So I can agree with you about people researching. I am going to get off my soap box for now.

To be honest, I'm relieved Obama won, but indifferent to the whole thing. This was the first presidential election I did not vote in in which I was able to do so, and I didn't vote because I felt I was deciding whether I'd like to consume a pile of crap, or a puddle of vomit. I'd really rather not consume either. >_>

There are two problems I have with American politics as it is now. One is that neither candidate ever says anything substantial. They make generic statements and promises without really ever speaking on how they actually plan to accomplish their outlandish claims. They are, in large part, just appealing to the ignorant and undecided. Those who are actually swayed by their baseless statements are sheep. On the other hand, just about everyone else is already set in their ways, and will vote Democrat/Republican even if they disagree with some of what the candidate says. They follow the herd as well. There are very few people out there that take the time to weight the facts and make informed choices about these sorts of things. Which is way things have a tendency of remaining the same even when they change. <_<

The second problem is the flawed and outdated concept of the electoral college. This antiquated systems was established originally because the founding fathers felt the common man was too much of an idiot to really know what he was voting for anyway. And while this may still be the case for a portion of society, that doesn't make it alright. The Electoral College essentially means that your vote actually doesn't count. One person doesn't matter. It's ridiculous, and it needs to be abolished.

IF you dont like the president and the way he is running the country, then go to another country...I think you will like it somewhere else.

I have to agree with him at some point of this. We need to be aggressive with these countries who are arming themselves and say they will nuke us or attack us. I am tired of having a President that will not stand up for his country he so believes in(complete bullshit) but if you want to just sit back and wait for us to get nuked that is your opinion. I want to know how you would deal with this I am sure it will be interesting?

Oh wow...that one took some thought...well I should let you know that just like I stated in that paragraph I wrote we both have the freedom of speech. So I respect your opinion...if that would be considered one...I am not sure what you were trying to do there but I give you applause.
