    Turn your monitor off, go get some sleep. It was a long day, we're all dissapointed with the outcome.

    But we need to remember something. The sun will rise in the morning. Your life will still be moving along. The Founding Fathers gave us a tool to exact change in our country. We just used it. In two years we will use it again, and two years following that again. Sometimes the tool will work for us, sometimes it will not. Whatever happens because of it, we cannot control. We can just live with it as best we can.

    So everyone should take a deep breath, let it out, and just go on remembering that life is not all about what happens in Washington DC. Sure, things may change for the worse, but you did what you could, now it's best to just accept it and continue on with life, and wait for that next chance to get those tools out again.

    Or you can continue to be angry, hate the world, wail impotently, and gnash your teeth.

    Do what you want, but I for one am just going to accept the situation we're in and continue on with my life. I feel I'll be much happier that way.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    No. This election showed me that there is no hope for the future. What was America is now a footnote in history. America, like the rest of the world, is now going to be a neo-socialist country where the moochers get to vote how the producers' income gets to be divided. All is lost. We might as well get used to it. If you're a producer, your taxes are about to go up to about 50% at best. Then higher. Welcome to England, American style.

    That may be, but what's the alternative? Violence?

    Whatever man has made, man can unmake. Not saying its called for now but the civil war was something different then what is needed now.

    The military will feel it worse than some...we're looking at paltry .5% raises...increases in tricare rates and reductions in readiness and training...on top of it...overseas we're paying almost a $1 more than the states per gallon for gas...in addition to all of the tax increases coming our way on 1 January.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Well I hope a few days will allow people to calm down. I'd really hate to see this place become an actual mirror of DU.
