 I was just told I should respect Obama because he is our President. Does that mean we should respect all leaders? Never question them, or be disgusted with them? What about Hitler? He was a leader. Should the Germans have really respected him or should they have stood up to him more dominantly? Should we just accept it and not do anything about it when our president is doing the wrong thing for OUR country? What about every member of congress? Should we just lay down for them as well, since they have power?

Note: all I said was that I cannot stand seeing him. When I hear him speak, I want to scream (being dramatic, but he makes me cringe)

Also note: I respect the position of POTUS, not who is in office now though.

Part of the reason they wrote the Constitution and Declaration of Independence was so you could disagree and hate everything about a government leader- Enough to legally rally against them and replace them.

I will respect our president as a human and because he is the leader of our country, but as a free american, i also have the right to disagree with things he can say or does.

My husband and i do not have a person that is on track with our beliefs on what this country needs because we are very in the middle. Some very democratic views and some very republican views. i actually voted for Romney, even though i detest that man for many things because it was what i believe our country needs.

 haha! I love how you assume I am a fox viewer. My dh and I actually make fun of fox.....But since I don't like that man you do, you feel the need to try to belittle me. I understand your definition of acceptance, and equality. His race has nothing to do with me not liking him. I do not like his unfulfilled, and insane promises and I do not like how unreasonable HE is.


You know what, you're right. I made some assumptions i shouldn't have. Are you a ron paulian or a typical GOP boehner-type? Or you tell me, is there any political or commentator figure that you agree with and embodies your belief?


 I will say, obviously, that I am defensive of Obama. Its a deep feeling, but I can understand it going both ways.

Wow, I have images of the Westboro Baptist Church going through my mind. 


 twilight zone right? That saddens me as Christian because Jesus was not about politics, he was about our souls.

 

Plus He never said whether he was a republican or a democrat LOL
