    I cannot believe, even after a day, What you have just accomplished.

    Even though it means jack all for foreign policy, this election has released new hope in the world, and new energies around the world. Secretly, most "liberal" nations are feeling slightly ashamed of themselves for not having they're own indigenous leaders. (except Eucador).. Electing Obama could not have come at a sooner time for you. He may not do much, but he's still a sign of progress.

    But, yeah, thanks, now just try not to assassinate him. Yes, I'm a cynic so what?

    You know that Obama is not really African-American in the real sense right? He's Kenyan American.

    I don't know, it seems easy for me to believe ....we've elected a man who has virtually no experience in almost anything, but he can talk a big, happy game.

    What's the man ever actually done? And since he hasn't really done anything, how can people so easily judge what he's going to do?

    Electing Osama was something like us electing a famous rock star ...all talk/singing, but nothing of substance. And yet the people of the world are happy about that?????? Why??

    Didn't Hitler get elected in Germany just because of all of his talk?

    Obama sure looks different, but there isn't a whole lot he's truly going to change.

    hmmm, maybe you mean we should be proud for getting rid of Bush and not putting an old moderate white Washington regular in his place.
    Fine, but to say that BHO is some great prize and the reason we should be proud of our country is quite a stretch. Not surprising, though from the people at sciforums.
    "God damn Ameri-KKK-a", right challenger?
    This guys a gamble and we may not like how the cards fall. I just pray he's as ineffective as you infer and doesn't try anything stupid. Not everyone in America is going back to sleep after this "triumph". We need to make sure BHO's shady past stays in the past.

    He's black. He's out of Chicago.

    Beat the Clintons in a 50 State national political campaign, by being better organized, politically more astute, and more capable.

    The last guy to beat a Clinton, in 1980, hung on to the office for one term before losing the rematch.

    Osama's not black, he's a half-breed. Why do people fail to acknowledge his white heritage? Or the fact that his black father abandoned him? Or that he attended a Muslim school in Indonesia? Or that his grandparents raised him?

    Rock stars regularly bring in more screaming, raving crowds than the Clintons. What's the big deal in that?

    Yes, I am almost once again proud to be an american. But only time will tell. The one thing that I am happy about is that we finally put an end to the oppressive republican dominated war mongering regime.

    I don't understand. Pride in your country is that tied up in who the leader is? I'm proud to be an American in spite of the socialist government just elected.

    I was always proud. But with Bush being elected TWICE! It made me feel like I was embarrased to go out and say I am an American.

    Fuck that. If BO and the dems seize power and stop elections, I'll still be proud to be an American. America is more than it's politics. America is evidence that hope and hard work are of value. America is help for the downtrodden. America is a refuge.

    Sure.

    You produce ?

    Subsidies given to American farmers [many of whom are millionaires] destroy local farmers in Third world countries. Most of these farmers don't even need the subsidies.


    No, for the cream who wants to rise in every place in the world. No one gives a damn about the downtrodden
    Hows the wall down south coming along?

    How many refugees have you taken from Afghanistan? Iraq? You know, those displaced by your troops in the hopes of liberating them from a dictator?

    Sam-I'm sorry. I don't think the US should be more like the lesser nations of the world. Fuck Third World countries. There is more charitable help available for those who need it than anywhere else. Refugees? Don't know, I know that some portion of a group of Iraqis were just resettled in Richmond, VA. I, personally, don't approve of allowing refugees to have the same rights as citizens, but my country has higher values than I. I would be shooting illegals, not deporting them or helping them become naturalized.

    Actually it's more of a symbiotic relationship, we feed off each other.
