Also who the fuck cares if someone wants to own a Prius? My sister owns a Prius and shes a hardcore Republican. It's a nice car, I've driven it.

I imagine to drive like a go cart on rails. Can you be more specific...no one I know will let me drive theirs....probably for good reason. heheheheh

It's actually a smooth little ride and the car gets just amazing mileage. The cabin is a bit noisy on the highway and the pillars are a bit tight but other than it's surprisingly enjoyable for such an underpowered engine unless you're one of those retarded "MY CAR IS MY PENIS!!" people. Given the price of gas these days I'm starting to regret my own car choices for our household.

Anyways the idea that the car you drive dictates your political affiliation is fucking stupid was my point.

Outside of your moronic/distorted view of the world, your first quote doesn't apply to Obama and your second quote doesn't apply to Snowden.

Says the naive fool who is glad he voted for Obama. You have to be completely fucking oblivious to still support this horrible president and be happy that you did.

Obama vs McCain and Obama vs Romney? You have to be completely fucking oblivious to think that either one of those individuals was a better choice. But of course you can't be reasonable about the situation. Instead, because your candidates lost and you are most likely resentful that a black person is leading the nation, you have to spew negative comments about Obama every chance that you get.

You and Cutter both have the typical republican personality and that's really sad.

What you said right there proves you are a racist.

What you said right there proves you can't comprehend what you read.

1. Obama's skin color is one of the few things about him that doesn't bother me. 2. Skin color is ALWAYS the thing liberals like yourself reach for when your back is to a wall. Who is the racist? YOU.

If Romney won the election and all this same shit was going on I'd give him the same shit I gave Bush. I bet you loved criticizing Bush without really knowing why. Where are you now? Deflecting to Mccain and Romney and RACISM to justify your mindless adoration of Obama. Not only are you a racist, but you are a hypocrite.

I'm as white as it gets and I don't mind Obama being in office. Where is the racism here, exactly?

People need to learn to stop with this shit, treat everyone individually. Stop pulling, "This group always acts like this and always does this." It's fucking moronic whoever it's aimed at.

There's no reason to make this jump without some sort of evidence and it's just as bad as claiming people only voted for him based on his race.

As far as Obama, I can't really fault anyone voting for him (unless it was based on his race alone, which is nuts)

I once asked someone if you were a non white, and voted for Obama, only for the reason he is not white, if that was racist....the person called me a racist.

I rest my case, and yes, It probably wouldn't be hard to show that the majority of non whites who voted for him only did so because he was non white. Most definitely those who live in poverty did so. I see it first hand.

If Obama ran the same campaigns with the same rhetoric but was white who do you think "non whites" would vote for?

A lot of them wouldn't have voted.....

I am actually bummed he didn't even try and do what he preached. He has a snake tongue and likes to talk big. I have to admit, he sounds good talking, but there is nothing to back what he says. He is very poorly informed by his staff, has a very hard time talking off the cuff or monitor, and has very little substance to what he says when you break it down. I mostly blame his staff, as he was and is a nobody when it comes to being a leader - they just propped him up nicely. He has zero track record and not a lot of experience. I still believe that anyone of us could have done just as good or better, and probably hired some better staff to better prepare us for the job....

Anyway. I have a lot of the same complaints of other politicians, but since he is the president, he is an easy target.

Still have HOPE that our populous will elect someone that matters....

I don't think revealing the breadth of the Fed's spying on its own citizens was treason, even though it was obviously in violation of the signed oath he took to keep these secrets secret. Now revealing the details about the U.S.'s program of spying on China, that is questionable.

As far as Obama, I can't really fault anyone voting for him (unless it was based on his race alone, which is nuts), since Romney was an unlikeable elitist. I voted for Romney myself, but it was painful. I considered voting for Obama, couldn't bring myself to do it, then settled on abstaining altogether. It wasn't until my wife guilted me into it (all that crap about civic duty and the like) that I ended up going and voting for the schmuck. In the end I was almost glad he didn't win. With the bad choices American's are faced with time and time again at election time, I find it hard to blame anyone for their choice, even if it voting for extremist loons like Pat Buchanan, Rand Paul, or Ralph Nader. We are in a desparate situation as a voting populace and have been for quite some time now. Unless things change drastically I won't be voting in any more presidential elections. I'm through being a part of this hopelessly broken system.

Wonder if, and when, change will come.
I'm certainly not holding my breath. Every 4 years we get a cycle of annoyance, at best.

Voting in this country only gives the illusion of any sort of control over or participation in the system. One need not be a conspiracy nut or extremist to realize this by now. Only one who observes, reasons, and holds accountable.

There is no good candidate, no change, no hope, no chance to turn things around. Only the gradual waning of a once great country's day in the sun. Another country sunk by the ever more brazen corruption of its bureaucrats and elected officials.

Or is this simply the perspective everyone gains as they get older?
