Actually I see it as more of a problem with our country.

I really don't know why social issues like gay marriage and abortion are huge hot topics. I feel they should be chosen by states.

Anyways what percentage of America is gay? 2% what percentage gets abortions? 3% so 5% of the country affects a large amount of votes and affected the outcome of the election. Don't worry both sides are affected by this.


I just wish people realize more government is not good(name a government agency everyone.e agrees operates effectively and efficiently with money) also that right now our number 1 concern is economy and future development of our country to compete with the rest of the work catching up to us.

As long as we remain. A wealthy and leader nation, we will have money and time where we can sit around and bicker about social issues.

Funny, to you it seems as if obama being reelected is no more than a sporting event. MY GUY WON.. YAHOO!!!
Reality is when you realize you're going to be paying the same high taxes as everyone else weather they voted for obama or not. Great thread deep thinker!!

Again, that is a ignorant statement. It is not a party who loses, when America fails, it is all Americans, don't you know that.

On Thursday just 3 days after Obozo's reelection, two younger men i know, were laid off at their jobs of 10 years. Ten mind you, not kidding, here this is serious. There employer brought up the health care issue, with some other issues, and they had to let some people go, well actually all together, they let 20 people go.

Starting already, and for those of you who did vote him in once again, if you also lose your job, i don't care. You bought into the garbage once again, my investor, says we are going down big time, he is smart, he is swaive, he is intelligent, and he can already see where we are headed.

He has been spot on.

If they talk about Companies hiring, they also better figure in, those employers, and there have been many, who are letting good employees go.

Is your job safe, really think it is easy to find another one. Take a look at our high unemployment and it is growing once again.

It isn't one party who loses, actually it is all of us, because the economy is once again going down, unemployment will remain high, and housing sorry, still has a long long way to go. We lose together as a whole. We win as a whole. Right now we are between a rock and a hard place.
I sincerely hope this is a better 4 years then the last 4 years of hell.

I don't know where you work ~ but my job hasn't been 'safe' for the past ten years. It's been survival of the fittest out here for a LONG time.

Layoffs are news? You do realize that jobs were hemorraging before W left, right?

Exactly. It's that type of mentality that is destroying the GOP in the first place. This idea that only they represent the real America and everyone else is less than worthy. People find that insulting and have roundly rejected that kind of divisive ideology. Republicans are digging their own graves. Their southern strategy won't work anymore. They will have to change their tone or be banished to minority party status for years to come.

I find it insulting that you think that there are white Republicans that even begin to think this way. Frankly, I think most of the white establishment is sick and tired of being told that they ARE more entitled because they are white and therefore should "step aside" for those of color.

A person's "worth" should never be determined by the color of their skin. This is why I have always been opposed to Affirmative Action. A person's worth should be determined by how hard they work and the content of their character.

I think you will find there are more than a few of us............most union members vote Democratic. The republicans have yet to figure out that them wanting to abolish unions altogether,and calling us overpaid and lazy,will not garner our vote either.

not an R.

but it didnt hurt at all, it was a forgone conclusion that pbo would win when the liberal media was stating that pbo would win even before the polls were closed. sort of a put up election if you were.
