    I will still hope that DU is just a tiny fraction of idiots and vacuous people with issues when it comes to the party that just won the electon. Or else, our country is in serious trouble.

    I really can't find the words to describe the disater that I feel Americans have unleashed upon themselves. I won't riot or wail or rent my clothes and throw ashes on my head. I will just work and go on. But I will not participate. I am working as an independent contractor with the potential to make a lot of money, but it is my money and I will not pay for the benefit of anyone other than me and mine. Should it come to that, I will quit and have the government bestow unto me the labor of other like it does for everyone else instead of taking from my labor for them.

    I'm not going to riot or make a stink over it, either. I'm just going to keep on keeping on, I'll keep trying to find a part time job (The economic crisis caused me to lose the one I had a few months ago at a small hardware store, but they said they'd definitely consider taking me back if their business improves), and keep working hard in my classes at seminary, so when I graduate I'll hopefully be able to enter the ministry and provide some real hope for people in need of it when Obama flushes our country into the sewers.

    No. There are at least 62 million idiots in this country.
    They all took stupid pills and voted for Obama.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    Well, my reaction will be different. I live off my investment portfolio. If they cahnge the taxes to add more burden to me, I will reinvest in all tax free returns even if it means less overall income to me. I refuse to be a part of the socialist utopia imagined by the idiots who voted this congress and president into office.

    I will wait and watch the tide sweep them away in 2-4 years.

    It is what it is. I congratulate President-elect Obama on his win and I pray that God will move him in a direction that is beneficial for the U.S. The question is, did we get the President we need or did we get the President we desire?

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    Maybe both. Obviously we got the one that people desired, maybe seeing his administration fail horrifically is what we need to convince people liberals have no business in politics.
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    20. My main point is that he doesn't matter anymore.
    He is now irrelevant, and I can afford to no longer hate him. Under the circumstances, I'm feeling in a generous mood.
    Is this what it is? Democrats feel they are obligated to hate conservatives because they don't believe in the things that liberals do?

    How warped is that? What happened to simply having a difference of opinion and let the voters decide which a majority prefers? By this comment it seems that HATE is second nature to them.

    No wonder they are miserable so much of the time.

    I hate to say it but - it's Bush's fault. Without the rather poor job Bush has done (being a social conservative but not a fiscal one) McCain, as represetnative of the Republican party had a Bush albatross around his neck.

    Had Bush don'e a better job of presidentin' McCain stood a much better chance of beating The Chosen One.

    For those who see a liberal disaster ahead, I offer you this prediction: Obama will govern towards the center. He is now running for proesident in 2012. Going far left will only alientate a country that is still, at it's core, conservative in many ways. He will put himself above his ideology. ( Not that I think he really has one.)
