Barack Obama, our next President

Can anyone imagine the Repub outrage and DBs post had this came from Obama? The Repubs would have been typing as fast as possible talking about Freedom and Rights and Communist and every other "ism" they could have come up with.

WTH we doing in Libya? Maybe we should be voting FOR Keystone, rather than against it, and then we wouldn't have to be concerned with oil getting through the Straights of Hormuz.

Why do you lie?

If people break the laws as presented in the Patriot Act, then they are law breakers... the Patriot Act is FULL of requirements.

Do NOT expect us to feel sorry for "lone wolf terrorists" (or any other breed of inhumanaity hell bound on hurting others, resembling the same) however. Aint gonna happen.

Big chunks of my family were killed by liberals, I mean socialists, while quite a few of the rest are in SIberia and most of current living family never knew or met them. I doubt we will never find the rest of our family there. Only thing I know is many of them were located in same areas as the German POW's from WW2. I know several people from pour historical village supposedly languished in the lead mines in Tobolsk. My homeland has been occupied since 1944 and continues to be so. However, now the Russian government is seriously trying to reach out and reconcile the past, including talking to the neighbor country the main chunk of living family is. It was an exceptional time all the way up to the 90's. Because of all this journey, I have learned to adapt and adjust. I don't hunt, but refuse to be weaponless. I can get around as well and have one other passport as well.
Yes, history and knowledge makes one wise and experiencing horrors makes you both hard, soft and full of will to live and be free. Those in the community that stayed on after occupation had to run in all guns. Bolt-action, Sami knives, pistols you name it. And THEN they came for their lands and THEN moved in their own nationals AFTER killing us off, shipping us to Siberia or simply failing to get us, which obviously pertains to the live part of the family. Liberals are ignorant. Many of them probably just think this is funny and has no more clue than many of the "republicans"> They are sooo disrespectful of anything that they feel they can knock upon. I have no count of how many time some smirky liberal has tried to be condescending telling me something about my part o the world or, even better HISTORY!! They know nothing, they are so crude and empty. I speak at least 12 languages fluently and another 10 so so. Maybe English is not my best one, but I can beat up any liberal verbally at his/her worst moment when my linguistic skills, knowledge of medicine and engineering background (demolitions) whenever they try to dupe. I don't dislike liberals because they tend to be dumb and ignorant. I detest them because they know they are both, yet still pretend to be the all-knowing sage.
Don't worry, I am VERY strong and will never bend over. However, my kids or wife don't deserve to experience another nightmare like my family did in the past. I have many many goo American friends and if I left with my family, I would do everything I could to help as many as possible later on as needed.
Let's hope it doesn't get to this. I know ONE thing, that my dad keeps harping upon me: The liberals in the US are just like communists under Stalin. They are not allowed to draw blood (yet), but are hungering for death and suffering of their political opponents. They are like a pack of wild dogs that have been starved and kept in a cage. Waiting for the moment when their masters will let them out and they can start stalking the prey their master has marked for them. THAT there is no doubt about. To be unarmed against such thugs will never do anything but ensure you die fast enough not to experience the horrid decay that follows their foot steps.
You actually responded to debil, but this was a very good post. His antics backfired this time.

Your description of liberals hit very close to home. Bull's eye, in fact.

Not the response he anticipated or hoped to elicit.

FBI: More people killed with hammers, clubs, fists than with rifles, shotguns

"According to FBI crime statistics, more people were killed with hammers, knives, clubs and fists than with rifles between 2005 and 2011, Breitbart.com reported Thursday.

"This is an interesting fact, particularly amid the Democrats' feverish push to ban many different rifles, ostensibly to keep us safe of course," Awr Hawkins wrote.

In 2005, for example, 445 murders involved rifles while 608 were committed with clubs or hammers. 905 murders were committed with "personal weapons" like hands and feet. Knives were used in 1,920 murders that year and shotguns were involved in 522 murders. Handguns, however, accounted for 7,565 murders that year.

In 2011, rifles were used in 323 murders, while personal weapons accounted for 726. Blunt objects were used in 496 murders while knives accounted for 1,694. Handguns accounted for 6,220 murders.

Looking at the FBI statistics, one also notices a downward trend in all of the numbers, from the total murders reported, to the number of murders involving firearms.

"While the FBI makes it clear that some of the 'murder by rifle' numbers could be adjusted up slightly, when you take into account murders with non-categorized types of guns, it does not change the fact that their annual reports consistently show more lives are taken each year with these blunt objects than are taken with Feinstein's dreaded rifle," Hawkins added.

"The bottom line," Hawkins added, is that a ban on "assault" rifles "is as illogical as it is unconstitutional. We face far greater danger from individuals armed with carpenters' tools and a caveman's stick."

Perhaps Feinstein and her allies would be better off demanding that kitchen knives and bare hands be registered, requiring everyone to undergo training in their proper use.

Let's ban all hammers, clubs, baseball bats, knives, fists, rocks, tire irons and don't forget cars because some people run others over with them on purpose. Then we'll all be safe and everyone will play nice.

As a strict constitutionalist, I also recognize the fact that the Constitution was written so the average person can easily read anad understand it.
I also know that if the Supreme Court rules that the sky is green, the sky doesn't change color tomorrow.
It is only the confidence of the people that the government is being conducted in accordance with the Constitution that maintains order in society. Without that confidence, order dissipates.
The government, all branches, to include the Supreme Court, has a critical need to restore that confidence. To restore that confidence, all that is necessary is to conduct government business in accordance with the Constitution.
The constitution that you use as a foundation for virtually all your arguments created the Supreme Court. So if the Supreme Court is as flawed as you say it is then it follows that your logic is also flawed. You still haven't answered whether or not you admit to the hypocrisy in attacking part of the U.S. Constitution while waving it at us here.

First of all, what do you mean by "church friends"? Where the heck did I say a word about "church"? Then voting.. For who?? Romney? A guy that has said everything Obama has in the past and then just had to change position (sssssss) on it all. A wall street operative that probably would keep up 99% of Obamas stuff.
Nope, don't think so.. After the Republicans sabotaged RP's chances so deliberately and gave him a cold and condescending shoulder, why should I even spit at Republicans? Liberals are honestly disgusting , but so many "republicans" are just pretending something to get the same power they now envy the libs for. Many of them are probably going to agree with most big lines in Obama's policy.
Yes, praying is MORE effective to preserve the freedom of America than voting for another empty suit whether or not he has an R or a D behind his name.
Republicans aren't perfect. Never claimed to be. Even if they don't have all the answers and there may be some truth in what you said - the ugly side of politics has to take a back seat when it comes down to the only two choices we have.

Otherwise, you become like Tenzing - wanting something that simply doesn't exist and then picking and choosing which side to root for. In his case, the worst of the two.

At least you aren't going in that direction.
