    I think his dream society is communist (whose isn't, really, but farther in the future for some.)

    I don't think he'll say "Surprise, I'm a communist!" if he gets elected.

    The difference is gigantic.

    If his dream society is communist or if he even has sympathy for communist ideals, and you're not saying he will actually come out as a communist and try to enact communist policy, how is it "dangerous", as you've said?

    If either candidate is dangerous, I'd point to McCain, and the possibility of him sending us into some kind of WWIII armageddon.

    Have any possible specific future scenarios in mind that would illustrate Obama being dangerous?

    Eh, increased socialization, moving toward the northern Europe type state of affairs. Increased government control of everything.

    However small the shift, I would disapprove.

    Northern Europe has the some highest standards-of-living in the world, when I think of "danger" that's not what I have in mind.

    You want to live in the untamed jungle so you can use your mad skillz and get naturally selected, right?


    You two should get married. It would be such an entertaining relationship.

    Good enough for me. XD There's also a rumor Obama dislikes hot cocoa... I can't have a President that doesn't like cocoa running my country.
