It's because you're so closed-minded that you won't even listen to the other side. You and your kind, who claim to be open-minded, engage in some of the most blatant double-standards I have ever witnessed. Apparently, you seem to think that YOU have the right to make your beliefs publicly known, but when the opposition tries to do the same it suddenly becomes "unconstitutional, politically incorrect, and bigotry." Liberals CLAIM to stand for equality, but in reality only those who are in agreement with popular opinion have rights, while those who are not are oppressed.

If you want people to take you seriously you should stop comparing people to Hitler. aaaaand you also said "Obama stands for the murder of innocents".


I would've had a more intelligent response if there was anything else to say.

My 2nd comment in this thread was not directed at you but the "sillyness" of unnessecarily saying than women have vaginas. Regardless, Lucidus had a point. You did not.



EDIT: I have also never in my life referred to anything as "unconstitutional, politically incorrect, and bigotry."
I mean, c'mon.

I'm afraid I just don't see how it accomplished anything other than finding fault with the mistakes of our forefathers. Sorry

I dont think anyone is writting off obama as a president. It would be foolish for anyone to do so. I hope he does a good job and and helps remove the color barriers that are still evident.

I think people are having problems with the way he got elected, that is, the factors that came into play such as race and the desire to make history. Neither of which is a good reason to elect anyone to run our country.

First of all, if you're going to quote me do it properly. Obama does stand for the murder of the innocent, as babies are the most innocent people there are. And I'm not just talking about abortion here. Obama seems to think that babies who are born normally after nine months of growth and development, after surviving their mothers' attempts to abort them, should be killed. He also believes that babies born prematurely are not humans either, and therefore have no rights and should be murdered. The man has no values. Obama wants to make it so having an opinion against homosexuality is a "hate crime," like how it is in Canada where they put pastors in prison for reading certain passages from the Bible. He wants to take away the freedom of speech from millions of Americans. As for your second comment, if you didn't mean for it to be directed at me then you should not have quoted my entry and then written "**** you."

I think that this is the most influential event in the history of blacks in America. It will also have a huge impact on how the world views the US. The US was once seen as a beacon of hope, prosperity and civility. That has been deteriorated over the past number of years and Obama's election shows the world that America can still lead the way.

Consider this quote taken from this very thread.



Now lets change some things up.

Say McCain had won.

I'm glad that there is a white male president(i'm a white male also)

Or Clinton.

I'm glad that there is a female president(i'm female also)

or to put it more ridiculously

I'm glad that there is a president with a vagina (i have a vagina also)

It just seems silly to me.

I'm glad that there is a left-handed president(i'm left-handed also)

I'm glad that there is a skinny president(i'm skinny also)

I'm glad that there is an idiot president(i'm an idiot also)

OK. I don't know if you're trolling or if you're really that dim. How can you not see the significance in the first black president? Do you think that the US was born only 30 years ago? Do you think that we were all conceived in a vacuum? This is something that hasn't been done in any other modern western, industrialized country and its siginificance is larger than any of us can imagine. For a black person to be president within only 40 years of the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act is quite simply astounding.
