  • It has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM BEING 1/2 black!!!!!!  It has to do with the fact that he plans on using our country as his own little social experiment!!!!  Taking from one & giving to another, Fairness Doctrine, etc.....he is trying to stifle our freedom of speech, our freedom of expression, our pursuit of happiness, if it doesn't agree with his beliefs.  He thinks he is the one to decide what is best for us all.  Before we know it we will have 2 classes, rich & poor.  Him & his kind (politicians, CEOs) being rich & the rest of us poor.  We will have no protection, as he will eliminate guns & ammunition.  Ammunition first as that would be easiest to get rid of in the short term. 
    I really don't care to be anyones guinea pig, whether they are white, black, brown, purple or green.

  • Pat..."You just don't want a black man in the highest office in the land.  None of your other arguments hold water, do they?"
    You don't understand.  It's NOT JUST Barack Hussein Obama.  It's the combination of him, Pelosi and what I fear they'll do to the Supreme Court when he gets two or three nominations.  Already there are promises (threats?) of the fairness doctrine being reimposed.  Obama and some of the Democrat congress critters have made no secret of their desire to rid the citizens of their firearms.  They have been promising to make drastic changes -- none for the better -- in the tax code of the country.  They welcome illegal invaders from Mexico into the country and want to give them the vote just like they were citizens.  Barny Frank has said he wants to cut the military budget by 25%.  This will not only force the military to leave Iraq, it will gut the armed forces to the point they will be little more than parade field soldiers.  New ships for the Navy?  Forget it.  New fighters, strike aircraft and tankers for the Air Force?  Ain't gonna happen.  Upgraded tanks and personal weaponary for the Army and Marines?  Not on their lives.  Retention of trained soldiers, sailors and pilots?  Are you kidding?  Not if they can find civilian employment. 
    NONE of this has anything to do with his being black.  That's probably the worst legacy of racism in this country.  People like you think everytime someone like me opposes Obama it's because of his race.  It can't be because his politics scare the $*&@ out of me.   No, it can only be his race that I oppose.  Your profile says a lot.  You admit to being a yellow dog democrat.  As such, you are blinded to honest criticism and opposition to Obama.

  • I, too, agree. Just look what George Bush did in his first 6 years in office! Wow! Spend and borrow like a madman. How come you Republicans weren't "up in arms" about that? Had majorities in both the House and Senate. Had and still have a very conservative Supreme Court. You know, we've had this government  for 230+ years and we've almost every kind of scenario you could possibly have representing the three branches of government. What makes you Republicans think that the whole system is going to implode because of this election? It isn't that at all. You just don't want a black man in the highest office in the land. None of your other arguments hold water, do they?

  • I believe you are right about what is about to happen.  With Barack Hussein Obama in the Oval Office and Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House and two or three SCOTUS appointments, they CAN do pretty much as they please.  I have said often that the Constitution doesn't mean what it says, it means what at least five justices of the Supreme Court SAY it means.  I shudder to think what five or six Barack Hussein Obama friendly justices will say the Constitution means.  Freedoms that we have taken for granted for a couple hundred years can vanish like smoke in the wind.  The recent Supreme Court decision that citizens do have the right to keep firearms for protection of the home was only 5-4.  A new majority on the court can easily reverse that and make felons out of anyone who doesn't turn in his guns.  Fortunately, only two of my guns are covered under the GCA '68 law.  The government computers don't know about the rest.  When the brown shirts come for the guns, they won't even have to pay us for them as the Constitution requires because the stooges on the court can decide that part of the Constitution doesn't apply.  Remember, we would still be British subjects today if the people who fought and won the Revolution hadn't had access to guns.  The FIRST thing any totalitarian government does is take citizen's gun away from them.
