Yeah, I've heard, for example, people saying they think he'll get rid of the patriot act. He actually voted for its renewal. Many didn't know a thing about his actual record on guns. This election will in fact be looked upon as a very low point in our history, if in fact it survives as one.

Grow up. And wake up. It's a brand new day. Okay, so your candidate didn't win. Is this how you're teaching your kids to take "defeat" too? (If so, then the future of this country really IS doomed.) If you have any love at all for this country, even a speck of it, you'll stop trying to stir the pot with RIDICULOUS accusations, and start really addressing real issues. Or at least not getting in the way of them being solved.

Pull up your big-girl panties or big-boy pants and carry on. It's a new day. Take a deep breath. Get on with it.

Interesting. person wants gun control laws thrown out the window, but is probably ok with the stripping of an American's right to privacy through the patriot act. talk about stripping an American's rights? go figure.
well, if they know someone has lots of guns and weapons, they'll know where to find them by eavesdropping in on phone conversations anyway, pretty soon, we won't have any privacy, not even when we go to the toilet. go figure.

Bush bashers take a seat and let us show you how its done
You all have been wrong during this whole election (right down to the October surprise) so if the trend persists, we're on our way to better times. It's just too bad, Bush nearly single-handledly brought this country down and we will need a few years to recover.

You read me wrong. I was talking about obomination's positions not mine. I consider the patriot act a total abomination. But the obomination supported it, and many of his followers thought otherwise. He's anti-freedom all the way around.

LOL. Republicans are far from mad. We are strong believers in reaping what you sow. Time to sit back and watch your messiah change your life for the better!... ahhh. .. where's my popcorn? This should be fun.

It's the blame game. The republicans need to blame and we're it. One of the guys at work said this morning that "Now we'll be at war with Pakistan". I shot right back at him with a number of other Bu**** wars we'd be in if McCain won.

They are sore losers. It surprises me with the concession speech that McCain gave that they are still acting like a bunch of babies. Maybe it shouldn't, that's what they've acted like all along.

It wasn't Bush who brought the country down. It was the democratic congress. ...but if you did your homework, you would know that. You'll see. After a few years of Obama, the whole country will be crying

how do you make that assumption when the first 10 topics in the election forum are STILL bashing Palin, even though the damn race is over?

Well, if you're so concern, get the hell out of the country before you go down in flames with it. PM me, maybe I can help donate some funds to help you relocate provided you sign a contract to truly leave this country. Anyway, as I said, when you're wrong again, whatever will you do. I know some of you are already forming a secret society to bomb the U.S. You'd rather see the world come to an end than have a black man as President.
