Thanks, Praetorian-Legio.  I think you just described most of the people on the govt. dole.  With over 50% of this nation on some form of govt. assistance, and growing every day, this is the face of the "new majority".  I tell it as I see it.  Socialism, here we come!  The republican party is dead, long live the new society.

Facts aren't nearly as hard to come by as folks would have you believe.

In fact I am always surprised at the ignorance of facts in many discussions. They are easy to get, easier to ignore(especially if they go against prejudices).

God forbid that intelligent people capable of researching things should be allowed to take political positions in a politics forum, of all places.

I expect that people that post in this forum are somewhat knowledgeable on the facts and post heartfelt opinions.  I saw the Obama victory the day I posted this thread.  My main objective was to show the highlights of each party.  It is very true that this election will be a real turning point for our economy and our politics.  This election will dictate which direction this country takes to solve the debt and how to manage the safety nets.  Dems will vote for Obama, Repubs will vote for Romney...it is all a matter of turnout.

I still predict an Obama victory with Hilary Clinton serving 2 terms as President starting in 2017, and will continue the Obama agenda with vigor.  If Romney is elected and reduces the unemployment rate, creates jobs and begins to reduce the deficit, Clinton will not win in 2016.  Just my opinion.

Have you figured me out yet?  I can speak from both sides of my mouth, not just from the left, or just from the right...lol.

Obama has this one locked up, as the title of this thread implies.  I am just very disappointed that Obama brought a Bazooka to a gun fight.  This election season is the worst I have seen, and I am 62 years old.

I have posed positions from both sides of the fence as we debate this election, but now I am tired, really tired of the hard core left, and the hard core right, and mostly from those who are in the middle.  Those people that bash both sides equally and say only major changes will drive both parties to disolve or merge, anything but what we have now...ya, those kind of people.

I am proud to have picked Obama way back in June.  I will not argue either side now and will just make this election into the joke it has become.

I have also come to realize that there are only a handful of people that participate in these political forums, and their overbearing cross accusations are extremely telling how emotional they are in expressing their anger, hate and outright rage of other people directly.

Take a deep breath, enjoy nature a little more and be sure to vote on Nov. 6.

Not going to happen. Even if we are a genius, we are not going to become top leaders of this country because we fail to have money to sustain campaigning. Mostly the rich become our leaders and most of them inherit their fortunes. They have no clue how to actually create jobs or fix the economy.

A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Albert Einstein

The top political donor for both campaigns is Goldman Sachs. Nothing is going to change no matter who wins.

Unless most of us vote for Gary Johnson!! Or write in Ron Paul!! Otherwise we're screwed, again.

I hate to think that is true, but it sort of goes with what George Soros is reputed to have said: that he is happy whoever wins, that it is the same to him whether O or R gets in.

I agree. It is sad, but I haven't lost all hope yet. Of course I've been called an optimist many times. I hope we, the people, wake up before it gets so bad that the Second Amendment is our only option. :unsure2:
I too, and that is why it kinda scares me that they are pushing so hard (some of them anyway) for gun control.

Congrats, President Obama!  I am watching Bill Clinton as I write this post.  He just locked up the vote for Obama.

I really wish the Repubs win, but it is obvious that we are willing to let him have 4 more years to complete his social agenda.  I am retired and this will not affect me...I am just a spectator, so good luck Obama on your second term, hello Hillary!

I think we need to end all this partisan bickering, all this divisiveness. We all need to come together ... as Americans ... and vote Democrat.

8% lead for Obama with 43 days until the election.  If Obama loses, it will be blamed on the pollsters.

Congrats again on your reelection!
