This particular thread did get a little off topic.

But we were trying to tone down the atmosphere of anger that had been getting worse and worse as the election neared.

The one thing that we can always remember about the President is - whoever is in office, will not be there indefinitely. If Obama does not do the job that the American people were hoping for - then he will be gone in 4. Other wise, he will be gone in 8.


The other thing to keep in mind is - we all have Senators and Representatives that we can write to and let know how we feel.

I just got through writing a letter to my State House Representative, because Georgia is getting ready to do away with nurses in the school system as a way of cutting down on funding. I wrote the letter, and copied it to my school's principal - he liked it so much, he turned it into a petition.

So we DO still have a voice, we just have to remember to use it and not get so flustered and frustrated that we give up.

Thanks Michelle, I was getting frustrated. You are a very nice person. I hopefully haven't offended you. I am just really disappointed with the pick for President. Thanks for being kind.

This particular Republican site...political site...is one of the most level headed that I have ever been on. Usually, I do not anwser...why bother? Well sometimes... First, I have lived long enough to see both Democrats and Republicans come and go.... Both parties have had presidents and majorities in Congress, sometimes one party in both.... THIS group does not seem to like the present Republican leadership...I wonder why....LOL... Second, I have always believed that national elections and most but not all state level elections are won by the vote of the moderates. Both party moderates and in between. The wing nuts (right and left) make a lot of noise, BUT they do not win elections. Third, I have also always believed that the U.S. is the strongest AND best when it has a balanced mix of capitalism and socialism (aka social programs). Yes a working free market economy...but with some regulations to control the psychopathic greedy crooks. Yes, keep our "socialistic" (social) programs like food stamps, unemployment insurance, social security, allowing all to use the public hospitals in an emergency even if they can't pay.... Good, patriotic, politicos who put country, not party first, and understand that unbridled capitalism is as bad as too much socialism. One parting shot...the @#$#@ bankers are going to the government for help....do NOT think that the average Democrat wants the government to take over and have a temporary partial ownership of banks.... Temporary nationalization...that has happened when the government takes over failed banks...has happened with both parties in power and is something to avoid if at all possible.
