    Yeah it's serious. Seriously awesome.

    And it's true. I didn't see any far-fetched conspiracy theories in the small entry.

    Seriously though, Obama has to be one of the least threatening figures ever in politics.

    I fixed that for you.

    He's threatening because we don't know what he'll do. Even if he only does what he claims he wants to (now, during his campaign), I'd rather not have him in office, but when was the last time that happened?

    Okay, but I'm just mentioning it because its regarding power and who is allowed to have it. I'm just saying by the logic of every person being able to have a gun, every country should be able to have a nuke. I'll discuss that with you later sometime i guess.


    Two words: Viet Nam
    Hm, an okay-point, but our enormous military budget (more than every other country in the world combined) probably isn't going entirely to waste. If the government really, really wanted to hurt some of its own people somewhere in the USA, we couldn't stop them, they could send stealth bombers in and fuck the people up without a warning (just one example).

    Yes, a few people, sure. But if the government gets out of hand and there's a mass armed revolution, you can't really ever crush that. And if you look at the history books, one of the major required steps in totalitarianism is gun control (or weapon control if you go further back). First you require universal registration, then some time later you ban guns. You know who has them, and you send the police/military to get them.

    Yea, and I highly doubt Obama would initiate that kind of "change" (pun). Plus, if he tries, there are checks and balances in our government. Both the legislature and the supreme court could challenge a ban on guns.

    He's a fairly ordinary center-left politician, he's not Dennis Kucinich..

    And they have, thank God. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Washington D.C. handgun ban, which Obama supported, unconstitutional.

    Why desire the situation where the checks and balances are put to the test?

    I do disagree, which you've probably picked up. Again, what he says during his campaign, and what he wants, are not the same things.
