Sorry that I didn't point that out [I tend to sometimes not explain everything and just type or speak without thinking about what I'm saying].

    Could have done without the 'retarded' insult, though, there are other ways of telling someone something they said doesn't make sense..
    I understood you. To state that it's closed-minded to not accept socialism (or a socialist) is retarded.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    *shrugs* That's your own opinion and you're entitled to it. I see the benefits that can come from both capitalism and socialism-- and US citizens are entitled to their opinions to not want one or the other. We won't turn into a socialist nation, however, there's no way that Obama could do such a thing on his own...therefore, fearing him for having Socialist ideas is a moot point, isn't it?

    No. He has a Democratic majority in both houses of congress.

    well thats what those two guys wanted to do.

    they were going to drive their truck straight into the crowd where obama was, running over everyone necessary, with their guns blazing, hoping to hit him before they get taken down.

    they were planning like a red dawn movie with thelma and louise sprinkled in.

    and I think the poll option should include "its possible"

    :rolli: Ah well, alright, so maybe they have a little something to fear, but I still don't really think it's much to worry about...just my opinion, though. So I'll just retract the 'socialist' bit, but I'm standing by firmly the rest of my statement.

    This echoes my thoughts. Random racists pose little realistic threat to Obama. Unless Obama starts making genuine change in Washington and upsets those in power, he has little to fear.

    First of all, I totally support your right to say that, but if you do, I hope you don't call youself a supporter of democracy or equality.

    Second, Obama has NOTHING to do with socialism. He has no intentions of tearing down the tyrannical structures of america. It's saddening to see how distorted your view of the world is. I only say distorted because this is not a question of opinion; this is about facts.

    Third, I really hope he's not assassinated. The persona that his empty populist campaign has created and that most of america has swallowed is already sickening. I would absolutely hate it if he became a false martyr.

    I voted no, but I won't deny it'the possibility. I guess part of me strongly hopes he wont be assassinated... mostly because I think of his two little girls and how awful that would be for them.

    McCain recently admitted that he did not think Obama was a socialist. I understand that this might not be the cause of some people's reasoning (since I have faith in people using their own independent thought to make such decisions), so I thought it might also be interesting to point out that American socialists do not claim Obama as one of their own: Socialists say Barack Obama is not -- chicagotribune.com
