the situation is the northeast NY/NJ is ripe for all heck breaking loose especially when people are all vying for heat,food,water,gas and shelter...wondering where all those FEMA trailers are at, just to give people a roof over their heads
So,, you see,,YOU are ONE of the FEW that some of the past happenings hasnt effected , But in reality it has!!
Down the road it definitely will, because of the debt this nation is accumulating..
Right now,, as far as YOU and YOUR personal situation is concerned its not a problem... BUT,, What about the folks who it has impacted??
I don’t know your situation,, but if you are like MOST of US,, you prolly work for one a them evil RICH guys.
If you look at history of other economies and countries,, if their system of government becomes so oppressive with regulation and taxation that it inhibits entrepreneurialism,, those entrepreneurs go elsewhere,, and YOU my friend are out of a job.,, and your COUNTRY is up the proverbial shit creek,, cause THEY (Entrpreneurs) pay for almost ALL the taxes, that pay for all the entitlements that those who WONT work get..
All of the above is meaningless, UNLESS of course,, you are one of the soulless that works for Government,, and you will sell your soul,, just to protect you cowardly hide, and your cushy job with huge benefits,, AGAIN that the evil RICH guy is payin for..
Mr Stark,, YOU are like the MANY,, that as long as it doesn’t affect YOU directly,, then the rest of US,,, that it HAS effected,,, are having a bad case of tunnel vision and looking through blinders...
YOU are the one that needs to open your eyes and look around..
Its Not about YOU!!! per sea.
Againn... What specifically has happened with the Past election , that has you so optimistic,FOR THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY?
It's not voter suppression. If an individual cannot help support the country and live off those that do, they should not have a say in how the country is run. You and I are stockholders in this country and have a say in how it's run. Those on welfare are employees of this country getting paid a salary in the form of benefits for which they nothing in return and as such should have no say in how the company is run.
Pretty simple really.
To the O.P.
What does Skin color have to do with any of this???
Like you, I too am better off than I was 4 years ago though nothing to do with who is in the White House. It is about taking responsibility for one's own action so, it is pretty funny to read how the far righties are playing the victim card.
The Dems will always use issues of personal freedom against the far righties because they are such easy targets and it is so easy to sidetrack them. And, you know a couple of Repub politicians are always going to say something rediculous that the press will jump all over. Not that them Dems don't say anything stupid, it is just the Repubs are always attacking the wrong isues.
Don't like gay marriage? Then don't have one.
Don't like abortion, then don't get one.
A truely free people should have those choices and whether they are legal or not should be left up to the individual states.
In regards to taxes, all tax payers are paying way too much! Blame it on the Dems and Repubs for spending insanity and poor domestic, foreign, monetary, energy, education, immigration and drug policies.
