    What 5 things will happen under an Obama presidency?

    What do you think would be his five top accomplishments? Seriously? I mean he is going to win. I hope I'm wrong but McCain is a dud as a candidate.

    So, name your FIVE!

    i say that as a foreigner who could really care less about all the nonsense of US inner politics and party lines.

    to the rest of the world, McCain is just 4 more years of Bush. to the rest of the world, Hillary is a joke.

    #1 Taxes will be raised on just about everything and just about everywhere possible. He will claim that it is an attempt to help offest the current economic slowdown (which I think he actually believes will help); but will in turn depress our economy even further.

    #2 While he says that he wants to keep jobs in America and avoid "outsourcing", and jobs moving overseas; again his tax hikes to pay for the nanny state will create an even worse situation. By raising the capital gains tax on corporations (he has stated that doubling it to around 25-30% would suffice) he would effectively ship even more jobs overseas by providing no incentive for companies to operate here in the U.S.

    #3 An Obama presidency will weaken us on the global stage since he subscribes to the ideology that we can "talk" and negotiate with everyone. I would like to see him give one of his pirated speeches in Tehran when facing a nuclear showdown in the region.

    #4 An Obama designed nanny state that provides healthcare to all will destroy the medical community and profession as we know it. It will also degrade the quality of heathcare in the States to a point that we no longer lead the world in medical technology and research.

    #5 Obama would effectivley unite conservative and modetely conservative Americans to a point after witnessing the degredation of America under his Presidency and a Democratic Controlled Congress in an effort to throw the liberal / socialist / communist filth back into the sea where it belongs.

    ps. He may actually give a good speech or two, until you realize that they really werent his.

    It is the reason the fed is printing up cash like it is toilet paper.

    It is reason why George W Bush has broken into the top 5 worst Presidents of all time list.

    It is the reason why [B]all Americans [/B]need to stop being selfish, man up and pay it down.

    Funny, I was talking to a Brit at one of the bars and he asked me what the **** were the demos thinking? They have an unqualified lying *****y woman and a unqualified half black white hating Jew hating Muslim. Did they really think they could win? He went on to say that he wouldn't vote for any of them but if he had to he would take McCain in a heart beat because he thinks the rest of the world will have a lot more respect for him as well as him being more qualified, he also said either way it is going to be better then Bush, who he think is a huge joke.

    I agree with him.

    Obama recently said that he needed to read an economics textbook.

    His tinkering with the economy will be analogous to Herm managing the game clock.

    1, 2, 3, 4, 5) Nothing. It'll still be the same DC quagmire for the next 4 years (next 8 years, next 12 years, and so on and so on....)

    if that's true then Bush has been like an angry monkey throwing feces here and there.

    Obama maybe not your guy's dream candidate but at least He'll be competant. At least he'll work hard for the people. Bush didn't work hard and when he did it was for corporations not citizens.

    Let me add to your list...

    1.) St. Louis Arch will be replaced with this:

    [IMG]http://www.marinaroy.ca/images/victory-arch.jpg[/IMG]

    2.) People will pay 2,500,000,350% of their income in taxes. All tax revenue will be handed to MD 20/20 drinking hobos.

    3.) Texas will be sold to Mexico (actually not a bad idea)

    4.) White people will be put on slave ships and sent to Africa to mine diamonds.

    5.) George Bush will still be an idiot.

    1. Taxes will go up . Nobody can argue this one

    2. Borders will remain unsecure

    3. Nothing will be done about social security

    4. Schools will still suck

    5. Healthcare debates will rage and nothing of substance will pass (I hope)

    6. Interest rates will go up

    [b]It is the reason why all Americans need to stop being selfish, man up and pay it down.[/b][/quote]



    I think we need to focus first on getting our politicians to stop pissing away the taxpayer money they're given and spending more than they have. I'd imagine trying to work towards a balanced budget would be a logical first step towards bringing the national debt down.

    Because I honestly don't think people such as myself who makes $30,000 a year and works two jobs have been selfishly driving up the national debt.

    So other than #1, it will be like having Bush another 4 years.
