I doubt too much will change. I think the country's situation will improve gradually, economically and socially. Obama is not perfect by any means, but America can build off of early developments in Obama's first erm.
Whatever the government does, they will still be hated, perhaps even more should another civil war erupt. I'm pretty sure even if martial law is declared I don't think every single soldier will go along with such a plan. They are still human after all.
Such as with the FEMA camps and what not. Please they're just asking for resistance and I would absolutely love for those pricks to come up to my house one day and load me onto that bus. If I can't even be allowed to live as a free man then feel free to brand me as a criminal because I just don't care anymore.
Personally I don't like the party system as it is, especially since it seems the only way you can really get into office is declaring yourself a democrat or republican. Why do our beliefs have to be categorized? It seems like even if you do get into office, you are expected to follow the beliefs of your party, and not have your own mind on things.
When Clinton was reelected there were talk about how he'll do whatever he wants because he won't have to worry about another election. It didn't happen. Same thing with GW and the same will be true with Obama. There were plenty of doomsday predictions about the previous four years that were foretold before he took office. They didn't happen. I think in the next four years America will continue in its positive trend.
Still there's a part of me that feels like there's little hope left in this country. Our education is getting worse, our entertainment is getting worse, heck even most of the people are getting worse. I really don't know how to feel about all this.
Terrible things like an improved economy, universal healthcare, more stable foreign relations, more rights for women and gay people, better public schooling, higher minimum wages, lower crime, and less homeless people? Yeah.
I wanna pray that he'll go ahead and make those promises come to fruition because there's a part of me that still believes that this country can recover from the ever piling mess, both economically and I have to make a strike for this, a good chunk of our media. Some of it is quite atrocious.
The only thing that's preventing this from happening so far is the outrageous filibustering in the House of Representatives. Republicans seem determined to either own American politics, or destroy it, in order that their agenda is not contradicted.
No no see that's bad! We have to speak up to help the president and educate the morons that actually believe right-wing finger pointing lies. The fact that the race was close at all, not to mention the still overwhelmingly red house, shows that we have not done this nearly enough.
We have guns and all sorts of weaponry at our disposable. Plus I wanna believe that should a revolution come about in this country that the government won't just start dropping bombs on cities. Just imagine the out lash they would receive from other countries.
I'm just going to hope Obama proves me wrong in regards to what I think of him. If I can't keep a glass-half-full attitude about it, all I'll see is the U.S. spiraling further and further out of control.
If anything this was the general vibe I've gotten from many of the comments on Youtube over Obama's re-election. Honestly I do wish the best for this country. I really want this land to become strong again. However I would probably be a fool for believing in a dream that others would consider to be nothing more than a false hope.
I've stopped watching the news and a majority of television altogether. There is just way too much crap going on. Granted there are a few gems here and there and thank goodness for Youtube for all my entertainment needs, but that's all in a vast sea of filth. Oh well, better off just focusing on the better things in life.
