    ever?

    It seems that the hate in Amercia is growing by leaps and bounds.

    When we had a short gas shortage there were people fighting at the pumps!

    Do you think that if attacked by another country we could manage to stop fighting with each other and defend ourselves?

    I will. I can't speak for those who consistently take advantage of chaos to steal T.V.s

    Yes, we will defend ourselves. When police are called to a domestic dispute, the family often unites to take their wrath out on the officer. When the officer leaves, they start their infighting again. As a country, we have about the same sophistication.

    By electing Obama, you might be able to reverse some of the opinions of the international community. You can build from there.

    America is cut in half the two extremes are what runs each side and the poor suckers in the middle tend to have to pick sides.

    The only way America will heal is if one half to either die or change their thinking. Its impossible for half to just die so that only leaves change their thinking. and honestly I dont see either side changing thier thinking

    Yes, I have to agree that we are on the path of self destruction. Not just by left-right polarization. We have a national debt of $14 trillion. Our balance of trade deficit is $2 billion per day. We borrow $1.5 trillion a day to prop up the government. We lost 60% of our manufacturing capability in the last 15 years. We are heading toward a banana republic.

    Obama is the reincarnation of a Mayan? They could have sent someone better.

    I can't tell whether your joking or not, but some of your people honestly think that. And its the same people who sit around asking why they are the victim of terrorist attacks; "why does everyone hate America", "what have we done?"

    That Obama is Jesus, and will bring judgement day at the end of his term in office?
