Yes, you better, because we will most definitely be tested if Obama wins. Actually, I shouldn't say "tested", I should call it what it will be: attacked.

There's one thing I don't get. Young voters are supposed to love Obama. But young people are the most selfish, self centered, spoiled people in the country. So they're used to being indulged and doing as they please and not caring about anybody but themselves.
So they don't like the government, hate the draft, and want money for doing little work. Why are they voting for Obama? Liberals tell you what to think, how you should act, how the government knows best and how we should all share the wealth and not pursue money or material possessions. Is that what they want?
I know these kids have zero political insights, no understanding of history, and react impulsively and think that they somehow know everything. They are going to be in for a rude awakening when the guy they voted for turns out to be just another guy who suckered them and promised alot and then gave them nothing. Talk about being frustrated and disillusioned. I can't wait for them to turn hippy and go after the hard core Obama supporters. Or they'll swing far right and demand a Reagan step up and take charge. Either way, we're in for a show.

Because Obama promised them free college, free checks, and great jobs.. 3 things a president can not/should not be providing..

As you said, its all about themself, and who would vote against a free check, unless your smart enough to understand that nothing is free..

Can you show me one instance where Obama promised anyone free college or a free check, whatever that is?

From what the two of you are saying here, you sound so in-touch with "young" people. I'm sure therefore that you're the final authorities on their motives.

You must have VERY different "young people" than we have here. Some "young people" are spoiled, sure; and so are some older people who "step in it" (inheriting money or property, etc.) But the majority "young people" in my neck of the woods (and no...I'm not one) are bright, nearly all work at least part-time (including students), and have exactly the same concerns for the present and the future that anyone else has.

I feel bad for you, apparently living in an area where young people aren't raised to be responsible. But then who's to blame for that?

Barack Obama and Joe Biden: The Change We Need | Education

This universal and fully refundable credit will ensure that the first $4,000 of a college education is completely free for most Americans, and will cover two-thirds the cost of tuition at the average public college or university and make community college tuition completely free for most students.

Default I propose one more option

Be a proud republican and choose a nominee next time who you run a positive fight.

By now, I think most republicans understand all silly issues and attacks does not work. We are in a global economy and adopt to the changes.
