Barack Obama, our next President

God says do not dwell on the past. Blacks are free, they have for how many years now? Blacks have rights, and are treated very well. They have their black history month, MLK day, and still some hold hate or a grudge againist the white people of today.

I wonder how they would feel if the shoe was on the other foot, and we hated them, held grudges against them for something they had nothing to do with.
I was very surprise that they didn't let him use his own faith Bible too.This is so true!I was thinking that he would also use his Bible the Qur'an, Koran, Al-Coran, Coran, Kuran, and Al-Qur'an, witch is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be the verbatim word of God (Arabic: &#1575;&#1604;&#16 04;&#1607;&#8206;, Allah)!!!!Since i understand that he is a Muslim!

Open your eyes to the live history's told foul, but I'm as wise as the old owl plus the golden child! Lyrics from 1 of raps greatest lyricist that lived Nas. Nobody's holding grudges against you personally, but your thoughts are as institutional on as a person doing life in prison! The blackman just doesn't live in masters plantation anymore, but you tell me, how are things better for the blackman now as opposed to then. We're the lowest % based nationality in America, yet we're the highest rated unemployed of Americas nationalities. That statistic alone doesn't make any sense. How can the lowest percentage of people be the highest unemployed people by far. The numbers are staggering! See Americas problem is we try to act like it never happened and when it's discussed in school they fabricate the truth and turn what's truly a horror story into a fairytale. So, no you didnt personally do anything to me, but don't sit in my face and tell me everything's all good. The oppressors of your race & nationality did'nt slaughter your ancestors & then lie about it in is disguised as school lessons to the living relatives of those that paid the ultimate sacrifice. They did it to the indians too. Almost to the brink of extinction!

in one sense they are right, the Liberals in the classical sense were the Conservatives during Hitler's time where as of today the Modern Liberals are no where close of what it meant to be a Liberal in classical or true sense which all happend because of FDR for his redefining & promoting his version of what it meant to be a liberal which in the classical sense rejects FDR's policies and all big government involvement where as the Modern Liberals of today which are nothing but Bigots that believe in FDR's big government involvement which is considered the normal to todays modern liberals or the New Left what they became known as which want to expand and take this moderen Liberalism of theirs that it has become to be known as to a new level of Government involvement never seen before into the daily private lives here in US Society which is the problem and the Modern Liberals seem to think there is no end of Big Government control which is their goal to place every aspect of US Society under a microscope even more.

Your examples paid their 'slaves' room and board, money, whatever, but it freed up their time. Even though they didn't hold the literal power of life and death over them, the premise is the same.

"great "civilizations" have been exemplified by intelligentsia with time on their hands." So they could execute Socrates, extend their conquests to unsustainable territories (Britain) and visit vomitoriums?

"Even though they didn't hold the literal power of life and death over them, the premise is the same." That would be Steve Jobs, not Edison, Watt, Gates Or Buffet, and, unfortunately, check the Chinese suicide rate and the irreversible birth defects that have resulted over their "not" having literal power.(BTW, are you attempting to show me how effective your social finger is in pulling shit out of any of your orifices?

When asked how the President has spent money when Congress only can spend, the caller yelled some more.
The caller then insisted that the Presidents executive orders usurp Congress and are grounds for impeachment!

Hitler was a chameleon. Like bama, he portrayed himsef as a "moderate", but was nothing more than far leftwing fascist.
Look into the July 20 plot. It might be interesting to see who the people were that died trying to assasinate Hitler. It wasn't the left.
Myth: Hitler was a leftist.

Fact: Nearly all of Hitler's beliefs placed him on the far right.

Argument

To most people, Hitler's beliefs belong to the extreme far right. For example, most conservatives believe in patriotism and a strong military; carry these beliefs far enough, and you arrive at Hitler's warring nationalism. This association has long been something of an embarrassment to the far right. To deflect such criticism, conservatives have recently launched a counter-attack, claiming that Hitler was a socialist, and therefore belongs to the political left, not the right.

The primary basis for this claim is that Hitler was a National Socialist. The word "National" evokes the state, and the word "Socialist" openly identifies itself as such.

However, there is no academic controversy over the status of this term: it was a misnomer. Misnomers are quite common in the history of political labels. Examples include the German Democratic Republic (which was neither) and Vladimir Zhirinovsky's "Liberal Democrat" party (which was also neither). The true question is not whether Hitler called his party "socialist," but whether or not it actually was.

In fact, socialism has never been tried at the national level anywhere in the world. This may surprise some people -- after all, wasn't the Soviet Union socialist? The answer is no. Many nations and political parties have called themselves "socialist," but none have actually tried socialism. To understand why, we should revisit a few basic political terms.

I can understand, but don't hate "all whites". More so, those of today that had nothing what so ever to do with what happen hundreds of years ago. Would you like to be blamed or hated for something you had no part in? Let us not forget. It was a white President that stop salvery. Also, white popele march too to set them free. Oh, and guess what? White people voted for a black President to be in office too, not once but twice. If you want to keep the hate agoing, that is your doing, but how can we all really come together, when people dwell on the past like they do? God even says in the Bible not to dwell on the past. Read that verse, hun, there is more to it. A good lesson learn in that message.

"So Europe got the American president it wanted – the one who would present no threat to its own delusions. The United States is now officially one of us: an Old World country complete with class hatred, ethnic Balkanization, bourgeois guilt and a paternalist ruling elite. And it is locked into the same death spiral of high public spending and self-defeating wealth redistribution as we are. Welcome to the future, and the beginning of what will turn out to be the terminal decline of the West."

It is more than a little disturbing that our European neighbors can see what is happening to America, issue warnings to us, and yet, we have chosen to ignore their sage advice (born of their awful experiences with socialism) and continue our headlong plunge into socialistic oblivion.
But -- that is what America has decided it wants. No amount of warning will make an iota of difference. America is hell-bent on self destruction and, like an addict, nothing will change its course until it hits rock bottom ... and then some.
So, no. I am not celebrating. If anything, I am depressed.
My country is dead and her citizens (the democrats) are dancing on her grave.

Right which is why I dont trust these Modern Liberals because they are deceitful in the way they use and parade around by identifying themselves as Liberals which they are not in the true meaning of what it meant to be a Liberal especially when they use US History to identify themselves with the Classical Liberals of the past.

Classical Liberalism vs. Modern Liberalism and Modern Conservatism

In the history of politics, there is only one fundamental, abiding issue: It is individualism vs. collectivism. Do individuals have the right to pursue their own happiness, as Thomas Jefferson thought and as the Declaration of Independence deemed self-evident? Or do we have an obligation to live our lives for the community or the state, as most societies have claimed throughout most of history?

Yet if this is the paramount political issue, why is it not forthrightly debated in presidential elections and in other contests for public office? The reason is that American political debates tend to be dominated by modern liberalism and modern conservatism — approaches to politics that are properly called “sociologies” rather than “ideologies.”

Modern liberalism is not completely collectivist; nor is it completely individualistic. It has elements of both doctrines. The same is true of conservatism. Neither view provides a coherent approach to politics, built up from first principles. Instead, they both reflect a process that is akin to picking items from a dinner menu. What is chosen is a matter of taste rather than a matter of thought. Just as people with similar tastes in food tend to frequent the same restaurants, people with the same tastes in politics tend to vote for the same candidates.

What that leaves us with are candidates, platforms and political parties whose ideas are inconsistent and often incoherent. The thoughtful voter may sometimes vote for the conservative, sometimes for the liberal and sometimes just abstain.

The classical liberal perspective will not solve this problem, but it will help us better understand it.
