Sorry but you sound just as narrow-minded and full of stereotypes as dscldsd ... I am a conservative republican (who happens to live not far from Pasadena) and do not fit any part of your "description".

You actually see the man's real name as name-calling and taunts? What's with all you people that fear the name hussein? Is it fear? racism? hussein is part of his actual name

Since you are so intent on referring to him using his proper name, then you would use Barack Hussein Obama. Anything less would be disrespectful. You're not trying to be disrespectful are you?

I do not support anyone that supports someone h*ll bent on destroying this country. My family lives here and will continue to live here. My sister was so filled with liberal propaganda she, like most of them, would not even open her mind enough to listen to all sides. That is pure stupidity. Thankfully she has learned and thanked me to boot.

I make it a point to listen to the other side even if I rarely agree.


Some people would watch their loved-ones make bad decisions and do nothing, say nothing. I don't follow that brand of shallow love.

That would be more challenging as these stances would make him liberal. My best friend is a conservative democrat and we see eye to eye on most issues even if we don't always agree on the best way to resolve issues. I could not see myself marrying someone who is pro-choice or pro-gay marriage as I believe that the Bible is clear on those issues.

My answer: No. You might as well ask me if I would marry an idiot.

So for clarification here you are using "hussein" with the intention of being disrespectful then?

I did that once. Big mistake. Second time around, married someone with the same values. Amazingly more peaceful marriage! I don't recommend marrying someone who is very different in their outlook, life philosophy, etc.
