    I know that. However, I know what I know, and I know what these people say. Even if I tell everyone here quote for quote, and text for text all the information out there, there will always be a great number who will not hear it because it conflicts with their own reality, and would be too negative for them to accept it as truth. The other portion would get past that and look at the information and analyze it for themselves without their own fears obstructing their judgement. Suffice to say, I will never post such things on here, not until/unless it becomes more obvious to more people.

Aside from the most extreme expressed wishes of the "shadow government", Obama's Marxist philosophy and belief in socialism will be the perfect way for them to enact their agendas, *rapido.
    Marxist? Hahaha...

    obama wins, jesse jackson cries... probably because he's out of a job now

    i give it 6-8 months before the "new president smell" wears off, maybe a year or two more until this one becomes another scapegoat for one of the country's problems.

    People toss around labels and loaded terms so casually, it defies belief.

    Number one, most people lack a nuanced view of what 'socialism' or 'marxism' even means. To level such a charge at someone is a form of intellectual laziness at best and dishonesty at worst. I certainly don't feel confident enough to define these terms in a rigorous enough way to append them to a particular person.

    Number two, the extremity of description found in political discourse here belies such moist feeling and overweening sentiment that it is difficult to even imagine a productive debate. This leaves us in the masturbatory world of polemics, which you find here in abundance.

    Jesse Jackson was rather amusing in his expression when you consider his comment of some months ago when he talked about cutting Barack's testicles off.

    I estimated a grace period of 18-24 months. By that time, the issues between Obama and the Congress and between Obama and the DNC should be readily apparent.
