Not trying to start World War III but I am curious as to how people view our new President.

Some folks seem to feel we are on a path of destruction while others look at this as positive change in our thinking.

How do you view it?

I will say I am not jumping up and down but I am not conviced we are going to hell either.

I do believe he is an intelligent man and seems to be crossing party lines to put what he believes are the right people in office.

My beleif is, this is where we are, I was disturbed by the liberals that were constantly negative about Bush and I don't want to be the shoe on the other foot.

How do you feel?

Hmmm, guess it's gotta be kept to Trinity only?

Are we nervous to say what we feel?

I didn't vote for Obama, I didn't vote for McCain either. I was so disenchanted with our possible choices I placed a protest vote by going for Ron Paul.
I knew he wouldn't make it and might have even been frightened if he had.

It just seems to me that our leaders are out of control.
Republicans seem to be courting the welfare voters equally as hard as the democrats. They are all giving the country away.
Illegals immigration is of no concern to anyone but the citizens of this country.

Do I see change with Obama......What can one parties pawn change?
Maybe a little more than McCain would??

Do I truly believe that the President of the United States is the strongest position on earth.....no!
Think of the massive amounts of foreign investment and how easily it is to attract officials with money and power.
There may be some good politicians out there but they are a dimple of sand in the desert.

Yet the sheeple, while looking for the greenest pasture never once think in the end all pastures will be fenced, with no exits.

As we head towards socialism and beyond the people feel overwhelmed and refuse to stand up for what they believe.

We all fear for our kids and grandkids yet few of us write our congressmen and women about issues of concern. We are a nation of Apathy.

When my neighbor says "I'm voting for McCain cause he will take care of us veterans" It is obvious we have become a nation of what can my government do for me.

Personally, I like to be left alone with little government and I hate taxation and re-distribution.
I have businesses with a government that takes more and more of my hard earned dollars every year.
I would truly leave my country for elswhere if I didn't have children.

Can Obama change this 51 year olds feelings on America? Maybe a little ripple of excitement until I look at the situation and realize...he is just another pawn.

I didn't vote for Obama either. This is actually the first year since I've been of age that I did not vote so I suppose I can't complain. I didn't like the idea of Obama for more reasons than one(his race had absolutely nothing to do with it)but our country did. He is our President. It was hard to swallow at first, a President with the name Hussein and Obama while our men and women and their men, women and children are fighting and dying because of men named Hussein and Obama. With times the way they are now you have to question where things are going biblically. That might sound a little stereotypical but it is what it is.

I've excepted it. I pray that he does right by us and leads us in a better direction. I am anxious to see what his first move will be. I might have more of an opinion after wards.

Once elections are over, I usually go on with my life so I'm unsure but do they have this hoopla at every inauguration?

Are you my wife? Just kidding but we have the same last names.

I know what you are saying about the Hussein name. That bothered me for some time. So did Jerimiah Wright, and he still does.

The internet and the media have tremendous control over our thoughts and the majority of Americans wangt to side with a winner.....as soon as the media tells us who they think will win....a great number of people jump over to that side. Primitive competition.

Guess it's me,Man and Lady from Crockett that care to post here !! Oh well ..nice to meet ya both! As far as our latest President is concerned ..Godspeed! However I'm not optimistic. He's been hailed as the 1st Afro-American chief executive.I guess that's fine but I hadnt noticed his skin color and dont care! His socialist tendancies have me worried besides being from Chicago which is the crookedest damn city in the US. If he leads us down the road to a socialist state..then I do not wish him well ... that seems to be the directions his followers want to go. When GWB did sone thing good I was for it when he screwed up I was not for it. And no I didnt watch the inauguration nor do I watch the news much anymore Be safe yall

I have a son that Graduated U.T and went on to Harvard Law school and 2 others that graduated U.T. Texas with another just starting school there.

It bothers me that they came from a middle class working family that has a few businesses. They heard me complaining about our government taking my hard earned dollars, redistibuting them and regulating me to death on top of that.

Yet...they feel more regulation is needed to stop the inequities businesses impose on us citizens? Corporate greed has got to stop!
Why should you have 3 cars and that poor old lady over there doesn't have any.(Cause I damn well worked for it)?

I have tried over and over to explain there is nothing the government does efficiently or effectively.
They see it differently. They have even gone so far as to tell me "Not all forms of socialism are bad".

I even had my daughter explain how a Hispanic women would feel if she had her Doctorate, had a car wreck and the other person called her a "stupid Mexican bitch". Can you imagine how that person would feel?

I told her I am sure it would be very upsetting but send her to Somalia and it won't seem so bad.

We're all soft as puppy shit.

I guess what we learned was all garbage.

I tried to explain how it is bad if you work hard to get a business

Well ... 2 words -U.T. lol I dont mean that -- all universities are like that I guess nowdays .Unfortunately kids have bought that crap and believe it.I think it all started in the 60's with "if it feels good 'do it".Now if it feels good ..it must be good .If it feels good to give other people's $$$ to the less fortunate ...then hey man ..cool ..that's all that matters ! god bless the "unfortunate" but in socialist countrys ..who has and who has not ! The politicians got it --the unfortunate starve ... it's class warfare at it's best or worse ... we're in a world of shit in the future

U.T. might be right? Unfortunately it extends beyond that.
I, like most here will bend over backwards to help a deserving soul.
I reject helping those that are too lazy to help themselves. Unfortunately my government sees it differently.
They always seem to win.

One day the working stiff will give up. It just doesn't pay any more. All the risk, headaches and stress just aren't worth it.

I will wait and see if Obama is worse than his predecessors at sucking the life out of us....the working stiffs.

But, gotta keep the chin up!!

Well I had high hopes for Obama. But his cabinet is full of re-runs, his policies are the same, and its just business as usual. More war, more bailouts. And 'we the sheeple' are being led by slick, charismatic, dishonest and greedy politicians. And what else is new?

I have said it before and I will say it again....we will never see "real change" from either of our two major parties.....well maybe Ron Paul.

I just laugh my ass off when I see Republicans hating the Democrats and vice versa....meanwhile the real culprits (the politicians) skate on through..untouched.

Thats because the two parties are now one and the same......republicrats. Yes Ron Paul was the only chance for real change. Ron Paul is my president.

Nope! I hail from the big city of Houston. Came here looking for the wonderful country life in a town of friendly, caring people. Thought I would find it here. Don't get me wrong, there are some really great people here. But I feel like I will never really get to know them. Perhaps it's just me. I just don't fit in.

Could be. And there may be a hundred other 'us' around here right now. And probably a few hundred more that gave up and moved on.

It is beautiful here. But on those days when nothing works right, and the isolation gets to be too much, Houston with all its smog, traffic, hurricanes, and pollution starts looking real good!
