I know it! This amount of snow, this early in the season is shocking to me. Keep warm and dry!

Best of luck!

Exclamation Oh boy...

Okay, I've got to get my two cents in here today.

Here's an easy summary of what voting 'straight democratic ticket' is going to bring you -



"... Once in the White House, an Obama Administration will claim something to the effect, "The economy is much worse than reported in 2008, we are now looking for massive tax increases for the top 40% of wage earners, not top 2% as pitched on the campaign trail". (Historically, Democrats are notorious about doing this)

Meaning, it won't be the $250K/year crowd. It will be everyone above $60K. Just wait, you'll see. They will also seize control over pensions and 401(k) as a measure to "protect worker's investments" over an unstable and volatile stock market. Nationalization of all retirement savings in a Social Security form. This will have the masses in a roil as this was not the panacea they were pitched in 2008. To prevent risk of civil unrest, FEMA will call for a moratorium on on firearms and ammunition transactions. Look to see double digit unemployment. Further foreclosures. With desperate people comes increased crimes, to the point the government mandates curfews and bans public possession of firearms. Emboldened enemies of America will begin testing a weak, pacifist president. With increasingly lower GDP & GNPs driven by environmentalists refusing to exploit coal, gas and oil, America decays into a third world country. Gutted military spending has our forces rotting with aged equipment. America becomes even more vulnerable to economic attacks by long-time enemies. In desperation, Obama further enacts more Draconian and Marxist structured laws to further control the citizens and prevent full scaled civil war. Continue spiral downward, prepare accordingly.

... Other than that, nothing much will happen"

This is one of the most ridiculously fearful things I have ever seen on this forum. What is wrong with San Fran? Unless you are a bigot...

Figure out what Marxist-Socialist is.

A. A philosophy-turned-governmental-ideology, usually mistaken for Stalinist/Leninist-Communist. This philosophy, although greatly misunderstood, is nothing more than the belief that the strong, the capable, and the powerful should support those too weak to support themselves. This philosophy, created by Karl Marx, was meant to be the fundamental building block for a utopian society, but was later taken up by a man named Lenin, who twisted and warped the pure idea of Socialism and turned it into Leninist-Communism. Later adopted by Joseph Stalin who turned it into a cruel cycle of death, hatred, and intolerance.
That said, I do not support a Socialist party or president. I do support open-mindedness, tolerance (not of violence), knowledge & education (they are different), difference, strength, and clear-thinking. The above quote came from a militia in the mountains of _____(insert random, uninhabitable hiding place). Get a clue. Peace.

Yes I am cranky. 4 hours sleep and moving snow most of the day is bound to make a person grouchy.

Wow - as a lurker on this board (from Wyoming) I think Danny DID answer your question. Maybe not in the way you expected, but. . . .
Interesting discussion here - certainly glad both sides are respected and considered.

I don't really want to perpetuate this topic anymore, but how does attacking and blaming Bush answer the question? At that point, Danny wasn't even sure what my question was... I really love this board and have a great respect for all of the regulars here. If I get back to SD and Danny is still there, I'll take him to lunch.

I didn't mean for this to be about attacking Bush or Obama, it was really about the question: What do all of the rogue nations, criminals, and terrorists have to gain (or think they do) by Obama winning and am I the only one that feels that is unnerving.

I watched "Flags Of Our Fathers" tonight. There were more Americans killed in the 40 days of the Iwo Jima battle than in all the years of the Iraq war. I won't defend Bush, I won't defend the war but I won't attack it either. If you compare the scale of those kinds of battles in WWII, to the entire Iraq war, well, there is no comparison. In saying that, I'm saying that painting Bush as such a HUGE warmonger/murder/killer just doesn't add up. i.e. I don't think the twisted terrorists of the world are collectively going "Oh Thank Allah, G.W. is not going to be killing us anymore!!!" There is more to it than that. Dismissing their elation to Obama winning as that is silly.
