Electing Obama was about...

Making history. Not necissarily about making a better future. We are S.O.L.(shit out of luck) now aren't we?

What was it about to you? Your opinions? And yes I'm going anonymous because I don't want hate mail for speaking my opinion on the subject.

  • Many voted for Obama because they hated Bush. They did not realize Obama would simply expand what Bush had started and make things worse. Things will look better for a while and actually improve but at some point we will have to pay the piper on all this money Obama and Bush have spent. Obama especially he spent in three months what Bush did in 8 years. Obama kept the Patriot Act he has added to bailouts and created new ones. We are all

  • I don't think we have four years before everything crumbles. Even if we do make it who ever comes next is going to have one massive mess to fix. If things do get worse and things my DH says is true we are moving to move to Canada. I just hope he is very wrong!
