In two days our country will begin a 'change'. Just what type of a 'change' do we want? Many names are being thrown around, 'neocons', liberals, conservatives, socialism, democracy, Marxism, and many very unflattering terms toward posters on the many threads here: far right wing nuts, far left idiots, plus many extremely vicious and nasty terms.

Instead of taking our frustrations out on each other perhaps our energies would be better spent in really thinking and researching. Blind following of any one person is never conducive towards a satisfying conclusion to this election nor any situation. We may need, desire, want and/or believe in 'change'. I ask that others please think with your head and not your heart. I also pass this link along to everyone to read and think about prior to November 4th.

You post a link from American Thinker and expect us to take you seriously? American Thinker is an outrageous name for a right wing soapbox.

Don't you think that the US is already socialist? Do you think that our tax system and entitlement programs are socialist? Don't you think that FDR, Truman, Eisenhauer, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Carter, Ford, Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush have supported and enhanced socialism in the US?

Yes, I do want you to take me seriously. Because I am serious. Serious about the future of this country. Never said that you nor anyone else have to agree with me. Just passing along my thoughts. As many others have and do on this forum.

We are entitled to do that here, I believe.

I actually have a printed copy of this article on my desk and have forwarded the link to many. Additionally, here is another link you may find interesting.

American Thinker: The Repugnance of Socialism

I actually posted this already, but as I don't know how to link to a previous post, here is the link again in case you missed it the first time around. Thanks for the post.

We are for now, if Nobama is elected though we might have to walk the plank for questioning him even in the slightest way.
