    • Government control of whole industries.

    • Nationalized, overtaxed, underfunded, and highly rationed health care.
    • Debasement of the US Dollar.
    Agreed. And these are only his plans for year one. What is next?

    I, of course, didn't vote for him. I saw him for what he was right off the bat. But the real problem was that there wasn't a good alternative. Even the Libertarian Party ****ed up last election cycle.

    I did not like Palin all that much, but she is not trying to change the way America has worked for the past 200 years.

    Things I liked were.

    * She was republican.
    * Small government.
    * Morales - Even though her family has none.
    * She fights back when talked about but then runs away but at least she gives it a shot.

    Don't see the appeal there. If I'm going to vote for a politician on the basis of moral leadership, then by the gods they had damned well better be leading. There is something inherently disturbing about avidly endorsing a policy that you, yourself, are living breathing proof of its ineffectiveness.

    I didn't vote in 2008. Wasn't anything on the ballot worth voting for, and all I saw were two impending train wrecks so compelling in their capacity for epic failure that I could not in good conscience support one merely to oppose the other. This was an election of the least worst candidate from the two parties, after each party held a primary to select the least worst candidate from their own ranks-- with both parties getting their selection of "least worst" tragically wrong, and the jury still being out on the results of the general election.

    Concern to you and his critics perhaps, but not so much for those of us who supported his agenda before he was elected. Some of the reasons I chose to support him, like federal funding for stem cell research, more resources for Afghanistan, a different approach to foreign policy that included diplomacy with our enemies, health care reform, more funding for our educational institutions, to name a few I felt were important, have met my expectations so far.

    And Obama doesn't have morals?

    "Giving it a shot" won't cut it in politics. She either needs to grow thicker skin, or GTFO.

    Very True

    Change is great.

    Yeah, but the rest of us don't care for Kenya all that much.

    In other words, the 2008 election was no different than the 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2004 elections. We got lucky in 2000 and 2004 and the worst guy didn't win, but that luck ran out again.

    We really need to stop relying on luck and start demanding our politicians actually support our views.

    That ain't gonna happen, not in the foreseeable future.
