Just remember....(my one and only comment about the election)

Posted by   + Show Post

 It is not a President that makes a country weak in the eyes of the world, it is that country's lack of support and respect for their President that does.

 Don't make America a joke by fighting amongest ourselves and not sticking by the rules we agreed upon.

You all have the right to be upset, bitter, pissed off, and to moan and to groan, but in the end he is the President ...if you are really that upset about make a real change and run for public office if not take a lesson from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (on PBS) and find something good about the results of the election....set an example for the kids

ooooh I love this too.

Quoting jmetz4:

Can I steal this breakdown of the pledge? People seem to be so focused on God in the pledge, they forgot what the rest of it means.

Quoting crwspringer:

I couldn't agree more. People seem to forget the Pledge Of Allegiance and what it means.

“I pledge allegiance” (I promise to be true)
“to the flag” (to the symbol of our country)
“of the United States of America” (each state that has joined to make our country)
“and to the Republic” (a republic is a country where the people choose others to make laws for them -- the government is “of, by and for” the people)
“for which it stands,” (the flag means the country)
“one nation” (a single country)
“under God,” (the people believe in a supreme being)
“indivisible,” (the country cannot be split into parts)
“with Liberty and Justice” (with freedom and fairness)
“for all.” (for each person in the country...you and me!)


The pledge says you are promising to be true to the United States of America, not to a political party. We should all respect and fight for the fact that we are free to choose our president and once that person has been chosen to ALL stand beside that person and to do our best to support decisions to make us a better country.

 I agree 110%. It's disgusting the way that we fight with each other. Although I disliked Bush, I never made a huge deal of it. I respected him as my president and that's all that we need to do. We look extremely pathetic to other nations right about now.

 Very true!  All of this in-fighting is what's hurting us.  If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

I agree! I am disappointed but I will show respect for the office and the man that holds it

Quoting Teeshann:

 i agree. i'll admit i'm dissapointed but now here's hoping he'll have a better term and can turn some things around.

Well said.
If you are an American, then support America's choice in a president. Over half this country chose Obama. Romney had his chance and he lost.
