Pessimism Ahoy! The future of the US!

So Obama won and while there's thunderous applause from his supporters naturally, many of his critics are feeling that since his re-election he will more than likely continue to further rape this country of ours. So what kind of terrible things can we expect in the next four years?

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.

I bet martial law will be declared and trans-pacific partnership be initiated, severely limiting freedoms of speech and the Internet.

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.

Inflation, high energy prices (Obama himself said his energy policies would cause rates to skyrocket), government control over one's private life, just to name a few.

But hey, as long as some people get their three squares a day, why should they care if other people suffer.

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.

Also, you're posting this on a forum full of Westerners who have a rather western-centric view of politics.

Also, deviantART is like the worst site to come to for Politics.

His executive acts point to it.

He is condensing power, and if he uses it, not much can be done - it's his second term, and here, that's the last and final. So whatever he does, lets hope the U.S doesn't explode from it.

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.

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.

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.

Strong relative to who?

We're still by and large the "strongest" country in the world, with probably at least twice as many nukes as anyone else and at least thirty times more aircraft carriers than the runner up.

Believing YouTube comments was your first mistake ;)

Many news organization spreads misinformation or takes things out of context for their agenda.

I wouldn't say Obama is a great president but I think he's doing an OK job. I wish him luck because his success is America's success too!

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.
