Let's give change a chance shall we? Have patience there PD. Let the man move into the White House before you knock him off. We just went through the worst eight years in the history of America. I think we can wait a few more weeks and let President Elect Obama move in. Let's give change a chance.

Don't give up PD. Hang in there. It is going to be alright. We can do it. Yes we can. Don't say:

>>Nothing matters? What if what was written is correct?<<

It matters. I know change is scary but it is sometimes needed. We got to change.

>>What if the big O's redistributionist and tax policies continue to drive massive amounts of capital away from the US and cause a long term lack of capital formation and job creation [ the two are inextricably linked] here in the USA. It's actually not a what if? It's a guaranteed.<<

If the system that we have in place right now and the same system that that other one (smile) was going to keep, If it was guaranteed then why is the stock market crashing and why are we in a recession and why are we losing jobs faster than the speed of light and why are we not creating any new capital right now, and why are big businesses going out of business, and etc...???

>>It's actually not a what if? It's a guaranteed.<<

Yes, it is guaranteed. Look at black history in the United States. Hopefully this will alleviate our fears. I believe that President Obama will be good for us because every black first anything has always broken records and been the best at what he/she did in every field. This is a first in politics and the same thing will happen. Why? Because when you tell someone you can't do something then guess what? They will stop at nothing until they prove you wrong. So watch out. President Obama will be the finest President that America ever had. We need a record breaking, trend setting, super star right now. We need a hero. Do I need to list them, the heroes of the past firsts to hammer the point home for you? Just let me know and I will on my next comment but i think you know them already. The same kind of fears from people in every category and that first hero in all of those categories had the same thing in mind. "I will show them who is the best. I can do it!!!" As you can also here from President Obama's historic speech, "Yes we can". What matters is that President Obama will be the best President that America ever had not just because he is black but because, "Yes he can".

Let's give change a chance. It will work. Give it time. Yes, I voted for change because I believe in President Obama and what he can do for us. Trust me, we can only go up from where we are at today.

>>Mate, you vote it, you own it. Don't come whining about it later.<<

Me whine? Not likely.
