What do they think they’re going to find up there that’s not twice as “socialist” as anything that Obama and a Democratic Congress could hope to accomplish in four years?

And no recount or hanging chad will save the GOP this time (yes, in case you are wondering, Obama did win Florida…AND Ohio).

This election was an indictment of the Republican Party, a mission to “throw Bush out.” The GOP deserved what happened to them, and I enjoyed watching the entire world celebrate this victory for Barack Obama — now known as Barack The President. It feels great to be a true American.

But for those of you right wing Christian Evangelical holier-than-thou fundamentalists who claim to be “true Americans”…move to Canada. After all, the Conservative Party and Stephen Harper won election there. And don’t forget to bring Joe The Plumber with you (considering that he couldn’t help McCain win Ohio).

For all of the neo-con nuts who say we’re headed towards communism, the ignorant people at McCains concession that actually booed, and to all the religious zealots embracing Republicans, you are the folks that lost the Election for McCain.

Not Palin, not his stances, just his fringe fanatic supporters. Your bigoted views and comments were heard by all of us, and it turned us away from the Republican party.

It was a shame to watch you all behave the way you did. I would never want to brand myself a Republican after watching what I watched.

For those still holding on to your ideas that Obama will ruin our country I plead to you, leave before it’s too late. Please!

We can do this without you. We can and we will!

You are a prime example of the ignorant morons that elected Bush twice. We celebrate today because we have taken back control of our country.

You state “The new leadership will, in my opinion, treat the Constitution like it is used toilet paper.”

What an utter joke…..you are kidding right?

No one can even come close to what Bush has done to the constitution over the past eight years.

Take your ignorant, moronic, “joe six pack” views, and get in your pick up truck and go home. You are not the majority anymore!

We have taken back our country!!!

God Bless America!!!!

It seems silly to me when people say that Obama is going to turn America Communist, or that he’ll use the Constitution as toilet paper. I’ve heard Democrats and Republicans both say (before Nov 4) that they’re moving to Canada if their supported candidate doesn’t win the election. This is an entirely ridiculous and disrespectful way to treat two very talented candidates and, I think, this kind of divisive stubbornness is really going to harm our nation.

People (Both Republicans and Democrats) shouldn’t view this election like it was God vs the Devil. The election was between two intelligent politicians who felt that the way they could run the country is the better one.

Rather than moving to Canada, we should let our legislators know our values and beliefs, because, believe it or not, our representatives in Congress and our president, Barack Obama, WANT to make America a better place.

McAmnesty lost his base as did the republican party in general. The republicans have truly lost their way and acted more like dumb-o-crats. Now this country will pay a price that will be immeassureable. We have entered what I call the new era of the CCC(communist controlled country).

On November 4, 2008 the United States of America and its Constitution died. The new leadership will, in my opinion, treat the Constitution like it is used toilet paper.

Unlike some who have written here, I cannot and will not support this newly elected president. He is a disgrace to this country and will do far more harm to our country than Carter. His kool-aid drinking supporters are akin to the Jim Jones cult. Led like sheep to the slaughter of this country.

Luckily for me, I have far far fewer days ahead of me than behind me. I had hoped I would never live to see my once great country pass away before my very eyes. It is a sad day.

For those who think McCain wasn’t conservative enough, you are probably right. The problem is that the nation as a whole is moving to the left. Obama’s populist message has resonated with a majority of the people. While conservative values are invaluable to any society, conservatism as a set of principles has been disparaged by the Bush administration who talked the talk but didn’t walk the walk. This is unfortunate. We can only wait and see if Senator Obama has come to the same conclusion. I for one will support our new President any way I can. The stakes are to high for us to remain divided. The fact remains that we, the United States, Lead the world. It is our example other nations emulate, and at this very moment await our leadership in these perilous times.

All I’ve heard all day is Republicans complain about what going to happen next, everything from the story mentioned about reparation for slavery to turning the U.S in a Communist State.
The Republicans have already started the rocky road to Communism by owning all the Banks and about to take control of the Automobile industry!
Also on reparation for Slavery, you’d only be passing on money to people who are still struggling to get a decent job, own a house and feel equal in a country that doesn’t outlawed all racial bigots of any color….

Already the World is looking up to America as the great country that it is.
Republicans had their chance at absolute power by controlling all three branches of the Government and they screwed up big time. With all the power that they had they did not fix our problems even the ones that they claim Bill Clinton created. Instead they went after flag burners, gays, Mexicans and other minorities. Now they have been defeated and maybe one day they will come back wiser.
