"Yes we did!" It's finally over!

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to say congratulations to President Elect Barack Obabma! It's been a long campaign, and it's great to finally have an outcome.

Senator John McCain should be commended as well for being a great American, and gracious in defeat.

This is the non-car related section. This thread is a general topic that's totally legitimate.

Grow up.

Guys don't get too crazy on this thread. Political discussions are always hot on any forum and hard to control.

While I'm not excited about anything related to politics, I am glad it's finally over and hopefully the economy will get better. We can all use that !!

Yes Jon you are correct and I am sorry for snapping like I did. I just pray that God has his hand on our nation thru the next four years.

Stopped in to say hello to Z-Point. Greetings Guus! Yes, the world was watching what was for me the most interesting presidential campaign I have seen.

Interesting indeed. Have you ever seen so many candidates to vote for? We must have had 10 or 12 here!! I voted for the guy at the bottom of the list.... I thought he deserved to get at least one vote for all his trouble.

FWIW,

At least you blokes have a CHOICE as to whether to vote or not. Down here in the Land of Oz, voting is COMPULSORY for anyone over the age of 18.

Doesn't matter if it's a national, state or local election, we MUST get our names checked off the electoral roll. There have been times during a local election that, (because I didn't favour ANYONE on the ticket), I've just walked out after having my name checked off. That's one aspect of what we call a Donkey vote.

They did a poll here in Canada of which Presidential candidates we would vote for if we could vote in the US of A - results were similar to the outcome of your election.

Congratulations.

I'm glad it's over as well. I am a registered Independent and I voted for McCain because we need to have checks and balances in our government. With a Democratic majority in both the house and the senate and now a Democrat president, I have concerns that it's going to be like the Carter Administration. But we'll see, it's going to be interesting.

If anything else there is a great feeling to have been around when history is being made. I voted for him with the hope of change to come and for something to be around for my kids. Will things change? I hope so but at least I felt there was a chance with him as opposed to McCain. Time will tell.

Whatever....I am here to get away from this kind of crap. I don't think this is the place for it.

Then don't click on the thread, if you put the mouse over the title you get a preview and you could have just moved on

Therefore, Montezuma's response was equally legit.

p.s. Include me in the "glad it's over" list!

Add me as well - I agree with Stephen! Plenty of polical forums out there for these kind of topics...

No more annoying phone calls, no more stuffed-to-the-gills mailbox with one flyer accusing the guy on another flyer of some trivial thing not even related to the job, no more wondering what B.S. they're going to come up with next. No more listening to what some dim-bulb celebrity has to say about the candidates. Who the hell cares what Paris or P-Diddy thinks? I'm George71Z, and I approve this message. Aauuuugh, I've been brainwashed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's try to face reality.Have you ever witnessed 2 lawyers argee?

Now think about hundreds of lawyers controlling our future.

Either way if our President elect is for the working man ,let's all pray he comes through because I cant work any harder,FWIW.

God Bless America!

I'm just glad that I don't have to worry about paying my mortgage or putting gas in my car anymore. Other than that, nothing historic in my opinion because skin color is truly irrelevant in my opinion. Too bad not everyone in society shares my view.

Phone calls and whatnot? God, it must suck to live in a battleground state LOL I've never had a single piece of campaign material directed at me personally, in CA I only saw a handful of ads in the first place (all for Obama, actually). Then again I'm not big on TV, then again I only watch cable when I do...

Anyway, I'm glad to see that no one seems to be taking the bait for controversy in this thread, I'm sure most people on this board supported McCain, which means that a great many people who have the potential to whine about this are in fact being honorable and, like all of us, watching to see what Obama can do.

I'm sure that I'll likely regret asking this but how did you arrive a that conclusion?
