Nice forum gentlemen. Good points stated from both sides, unlike the liberal media. I have joined in the topic pretty late, but from Patriot Act, Bailouts, and the war, for the most part we have been successful. Saddam is out (though another Hussein is president...Barack Hussein Obama), our economey is faltering but the dollar is gaining on the international market, and gas is cheaper than beer (at least in KS for us rednecks).
As far as our president-elect, I will agree with the boys and give him a shot. I won't give up my guns nor my hunting nor my Constitutional rights. When your girlfriend, after hearing about how her close friends were assaulted, looks to you and says we need a new handgun suitable for both of us, something is not right. We must remember that this is OUR country, for the people, BY the people. The unfortunate majority will paint us as extremists, though we are Patriots. Our Marine bloodbrother from part I, even though an Obama supporter, will be thrown in with us.
The bottom line is this: we are Americans. The following is cheesy, but true for us. In the beginning of the movie "Shooter", Mark Wahlberg is approached at his mountain home and asked to help with a project. His response about helping the president is "I don't like him, and I didn't like the one before him either". Danny Glover's response is "You like the IDEA of the president, don't you?" Unfortunately that is where we are now. We have to remember this and not forget our "core values" (another reference from the movie).
No matter who or what runs this country, we have to remember our attitude of "I will not go quietly into the night, I will not fall without a fight" remains. Forget the Libs and their 400% taxes on our lifestyle. We are free, and we will not surrender to their ideas. We have our own thoughts, dreams and aspirations, and that is why this is America: the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
