Laughing h2o_man, just a friendly suggestion, but the comebacks are not your forte.
you might do yourself a great service if you were not trying so hard to be funny or witty or quick.



Thanks for the suggestion Dag, maybe I'll slow it down a bit and make it last :wink:

Let me ask the obvious question: Who cares?

The majority of Americans support socialist programs- from universal health care to affirmative action programs to investments in education.

If we want to democratically elect a "socialist" president (not that Obama exactly fits the bill which is why many real socialists supported other candidates in the primary), what's the big deal?

You people don't understand democracy.

the majority of Americans also oppose illegal immigration and same-sex marriage. You wouldn't have any problems with that either, right? After all, you understand democracy.

You don't understand that this is a republic and not a democracy.
Electing Obama as a "socialist" president is not a smart thing to do.
It's not logical.

Republic only means that the USA doesn't have a monarch as head of state, democracy is the system of government.

Funny that you claim, you don't live in a democracy ...

(But I'm very glad that it was the USA [and allies] who brought it back to us after WWII!)

Well, since you don't have a democracy - that shouldn't be difficult to get.

(You live now in a dictatorship?)

We will elect the president that we choose to lead the country. We had choices in the primaries, and we have choices in the general election.

It appears that we are going to choose Obama.

We can elect anyone we want. Where do you guys get off telling Americans who we should or shouldn't vote for.

Please explain Waterboy,

Why couldn't Americans elect a socialist president if a majority of us wanted to?

A majority of Americans will elect Obama... whether Obama is really a socialist is apparently up for debate (I would prefer a true socialist).

We can't afford socialism. We've spent all our tax money on nation building in Iraq. I hope the Iraqi people enjoy their new roads, schools and hospitals. I assume they will, as soon as the opposition stops blowing them up as fast as we rebuild them.

The majority of Americans will end up dying broke in charity nursing homes when their retirement savings run out and their illnesses demand more care than they can afford. The next generation of American children will inherit nothing but debts. This time in history will be known as The Bush Legacy.

From that website:

Quote:
"I REJECT YOUR REALITY AND SUBSTITUTE MY OWN."


I can't imagine anyone better described by that statement than George W. Bush.

Maybe... but I far prefer Obama's reality to McCain/Bush's.

There is no McCain/Bush's, just McCain or Obama.

McCain has a clue - Obama is a HOAX.
