    Obama has also had a profound influence on my thinking. He is one of the reasons I have become so radical. Obama has convinced me that my country is dead. Obama has transformed me into a political nihilist.

    Who said you weren't? I'm stating Reagan didn't LGBT rights and was a radical Christian who supported dictatorships. Not somebody I want running my country.

    He might, but considering he's not a socialist, and isn't making us socialist, he won't deserve it.

    Thankfully in our country a well informed voter can vote him out.

    Well - a stupid voter can vote him in, then, I guess.

    I agree...
    But consider that Bush got the country to hate him through the direction he was taking the country, so in unison the majority of americans jumped into Obama's arms on the promise of 'change'... but that 'change' was to take what Bush was doing and amp it up a few notches.

    SO, while we can vote out Obama... we have to make sure that we are not voting IN someone who is much worse.

    I understand your feelings. You absolutely reject the imposition of someone else's doctrinaire dogma on you. You are right because the imposition of Reagan's views on you violated your rights. The same thing is true for me and Obama. I feel just as strongly as you.

    I would rather there be no America than to have Obama's social justice dogma imposed on me. I don't expect you to compromise with me. And I will not compromise with you. Actually, American political paralysis works for both of us. It prevents either side from imposing its will on the other side.

    This post illustrates your character.

    Not only would one have to believe Barack Obama is socialist, one would also have to believe that after his presidency there is nothing possible for anyone to do after he leaves office. Will anyone here really say that Obama is so powerful, and they are so weak, that regardless of who is elected after him, and after that next President, that they will be unable to change anything?
