Ray - get a grip! It didn't matter who was elected. We would still have to deal with the deficit. Do you think electing Romney would have magically solved all those problems?
Ray, can you think of any where on this earth you would rather live?You must remember....this IS a democracy. Not every one gets to have their way....Hey, but then again, you can wait 4 more years. I hate to see you so bitter. You poor soul!N&B
"You must remember....this IS a democracy. Not every one gets to have their way...."No, it is a Constitutional Republic. Otherwise,the majority could decide to:Deport any and all 'undesirables', or jail them without cause, prevent any 'bad press' from ever occurring......confiscate your guns......YOu live in a country where you have Constitutional Rights and freedoms guaranteed. The rights of minorities are protected. You can't be 'voted off the island' by the majority. Let's hope it stays that way...but if you want ever bigger Nanny State, it won't for long. THe more power you cede to government, the less you have, until you are merely a serf serving the Government Master.You realize you already work about 40% of your entire year just 'for the man'? You get up, go to work, work all day, bust your chops - whether digging ditches, serving up meals, designing bridges or web browsers. YOu work work work all the way through january...through February....through March.....through April into May...and all the efforts of your work go to "Big Government". That, of course, assumes you are not one of the leeching 47% that pays no income taxes at all. We're talking about the other half that pays all the freight for the welfare weenies and queenies. Then, after you have worked all of January, February, March and April, will all the fruits of your labor confiscated...and redistributed....you get to keep what you earn for the rest of the year. IN Denmark, you got to work about six months before the government stops taking 100% of your paycheck and lets you actually keep it. Half a year to serve the Master.....who redistributes it.....to the weenies and queenies....---So how much bigger do you want government to get? YOu want the Obama socialist Marxist model? WHere the government takes ALL your money, then decides what your 'needs' are and gives you back a teeny portion of it. Obviously, the 'needs' of that welfare mother with 8 kids is a lot higher than yours. She needs that five bedroom house and food for 9. You only need a teeny teeny apartment and you can buy your own food. They'll give you $600 a month to live on and $6000 a month for the queenie and kids. You really didn't need that $100,000 a year salary, right? It's only 'fair' ....Remember...to Obama.....you produce 'according to your abilities'...and the state gets the fruits of your labor....and you receive back 'according to your needs'.......That's socialism folks and that's Obama's goal. Just like Chavez. Just like Castro. His heroes....t.
I hate to see you so bitter. You poor soul!it makes me chuckle....and this is just the board for that.
Ray, can you think of any where on this earth you would rather live?You must remember....this IS a democracy. Not every one gets to have their way....Hey, but then again, you can wait 4 more years.I hate to see you so bitter. You poor soul!N&BI'll stick with our Constitutional Republic, you should deport yourself to a democracy or even Cuba if you don't want the hear other opinions.In a Republic, the sovereignty resides with the people themselves. In a Republic, one may act on his own or through his representatives when he chooses to solve a problem. The people have no obligation to the government; instead, the government is a servant of the people, and obliged to its owner, We the People.
You must remember....this IS a democracy. Not every one gets to have their way....The principals of the US Constitution were to err on the side of freedom.In the case that democrats wish to have publicly funded health insurance, but republicans do not wish to participate: it would err on the side of allowing people to opt out. Current legislation forces participation on everyone. Is this erring on the side of freedom?In the case of social security, some wish to participate, others wish to opt out. Our government has dictated that everyone must participate. Is this erring on the side of freedom?In the case of gun ownership, some wish to restrict weapons others wish to own and use weapons. Our government dictates rather stringent requirements upon citizens in order that they might possess firearms. Is this erring on the side of freedom?Democrats do not like conservative radio, so democrats are trying to pass legislation to reduce or eliminate conservative talk radio. Is this erring on the side of freedom?Some religious organizations do not wish to pay for abortion services since it is contrary to their religious freedoms. The government has dictated that all such organizations must pay for abortions. Is this erring on the side of freedom?A large swath of the US electorate is over-eagerly sacrificing their liberty in the name of getting "free stuff" (security).They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.--Benjamin Franklin"If we give the government the power to give us everything we want, we'll have also given it the power to take everything that we have."
