Obama's 'change' you can believe!

What 'change' do you now believe because of Obama?

As for me, I now believe hope would be a change.

The "change" I believe in now is a change back to conservatism and I "hope" we can achieve it come November ;)

Why?

Because I don't support the direction the country is going in.

Well thats too bad because it's very unlikely that it's going to happen this November.

With a worst case scenario the democrats would still have 53 seats in the senate and about 238 in the house which still both constitute a majority

sorry to kind of burst your bubble there...

Well..., let's just wait and see. I am still "hopeful" for "change" ;)

What?! You mean to tell me that the New York Times is siding with the Democrats?

The Democrats keeping 57 seats(56 depending on what you count Lieberman as) would be a rather generous estimation. With North Dakota being a Republican safe hold[1] that means that the Democrats will only lose one other seat if the 57 estimation is to be accurate. Indiana[2], Colorado[3], Washington[4], Nevada, and Pennsylvania all with Republicans in the lead it looks like the Democrats will have a lot of work to do if they want to have 55+ senators.

The House races will be a lot harder to predict seeing as they tend to be dictated by voter turnout, but right now the Republicans are furious and will be seen come election day while the college students that were active supporters of Obama in 2008 seem to have lost a lot of their excitement.

People who don't understand anything coughsarahpalincough are impressionable.

And "big business" has a lot of money to spend on making those stupid impressionable people support the corporation's rights, and not their own rights.

It's a shame that there are so many ignorant republicans out there, but thank god they are becoming a minority.

I still believe in Obama's abilities and his love for this country and it's people.

Most young people are liberals. Most older folks are conservatives. Which one of those two groups is usually associated with idealism (or being impressionable)? The truth of the matter is that older folks have been around a lot longer and know w a thing or two more than younger folks. Oh sure, you can work an iPod, but is that really important ;)

Yeah. It is.

We are the brilliant generation. I learn more on my ipod from NPR podcasts than you ever could watching Doctor Oz and FOX.

Obama is taking this country from a corporate dominated one and giving some of that power to common-man; which is what this country should have stood for in the first place. Sure his policies have not been perfect but, hardly any politician is perfect. He's revamped student loans, healthcare, both wars, the economy and, has added several consumer protection laws.

Side: Change We Need

It is now 2015 and the big change lies with the nuclear arms deal with Iran.

Jesus was a liberal socialist. It is sad that the Republicans thump the Bible when it comes to things like sex education and evolution, but ignore Jesus' real teachings when it comes to important social values like loving your neighbor, feeding the hungry or "loving money". Although many "liberals" seem to be turning away from God they seem to be following his teachings much better then Republicans. Given the choice between following the teachings and nit-picking about specific passages, I am sure Jesus would want us to follow his teachings. Too bad the Republicans don't think the same way.

I, for one, like the change toward the more socialist society that Jesus preached.

Whether Jesus was a socialist is irrelevant, I live in this century.

Jesus was a liberal socialist.

Jesus is a fictional character. Basing policies on him would be like basing policies off a South Park episode(which would be fucking awesome).

socialism, Communism, anarchism, capitalism, democracy, god, etc are all words which could use less ambiguity. When i heard socialism i immediately think of systems designed to give economic freedom to the common man, not merely to a capital owner. I read to much though, the above words all have their evolutions. I hate it when i hear someone refer to America as a democracy, in my mind we're a democratic federal republic. Representative democracy i don't count as democracy. one is voting on issues, the other is voting on those who will vote on issues; both embody democratic ideals but only one embodies all of them fully. ultimately labels are excellent propaganda tools, especially when their ambiguous and carry a lot of emotional weight. Socialism is nothing but an empty buzz word in this modern age.
