and how 'bout that election!

Are you happy or pissed at the results???

personally I think we're all screwed over now. >.<

Obama's not going to make it four years. It's so obvious, I'm glad.

Re: and how 'bout that election!

obama, is the first man in a long time whose given me faith that our goverment has a chance. naysayers can gripe and groan all they want but the fact of the matter is he's here for four years(hopefully eight) and even mccain in his concession speech asked his followers to put aside differences and support the new president elect.

Who knows what will happen?
This is the first time in...well almost a decade that we've had a democratic president, so let's see what happens. Obama appears to be a good leader and some things he has said in speeches really gace me hope. Gas prices are going down..it's a start smile :dance:

Re: and how 'bout that election!

I'm unhappy still about it. My husband is a US Marine, and Democrats usually screw the military over, and without them you girlies wouln't be able to say what you say on here or anywhere else for that matter. I'm not being snotty about it, but it's true.

Re: and how 'bout that election!

that's stupid, a true soldier wants to serve their country, not whatever administration is in office at the time.  it shouldn't matter if that's republican or democrat.

Re: and how 'bout that election!

Yes, but a true soldier also wants to serve his country under someone who knows what he's doing with the military.

Re: and how 'bout that election!

I agree and I TOTALLY hate it when people say something is stupid or wrong just because it's different than what they think. Especially if they don't know anything about it.

Re: and how 'bout that election!

ummm, actually i do know something about it. i may be a democrat but my older brother is a staunch republican who is just as proud be a ranger now as he was before the election. he serves his country, not whatever president gives him a pay raise. so yeah when i say it's stupid i mean it's stupid. that's my opinion. you can call it rude if you want.

Re: and how 'bout that election!

oh i'm sorry. i didn't realize that i don't understand the situation because i'm related to a soldier instead of married to one(or marine).

and by the way obama wants to cut the military budget by slowly pulling out of iraq, so that he can focus more resources and forces on afganistan, you know, where the actual terrorists are. he doesn't want any cut in military budgets. in fact with the amount that most in the military make, they'll actually benefit from Obama's tax cuts, tax cuts they didn't recieve under the bush admin.

Re: and how 'bout that election!

Military pay will be cut as well. It will more than likely happen in 2010, or by the end of the fiscal year, which is usually October for the military.

Iraq was a justified war, and there are terrorists there, ask someone who served there, more than likely a Marine, they're on the front lines.

And also by cuts that means equipment not quite up to par. I'm happy my husband already has his 2 tours knocked out, I don't want him there with cheaper gear.

And with that, I'm done on this thread. Seriously, I'd rather argue with people who are aware of current situations.

Re: and how 'bout that election!

ratrodgirl4life,

It seems the military cuts are ALL you want to discuss.  What else do you have to say about Obama being president?

Of course there will be good & bad changes & not everyone can be happy with the changes being made.  Was Mccain actually a better choice in your mind???  Your husband chose to join the military (& god bless him!) BUT where would we be with a president who wanted to reinact the draft & who is against abortion???   What freedoms would people have with a man like this in office?

I don't know about you but I would rather choose to join the military then be force to go (plus I'd like to end the war & not spend gazillions of dollars to stay in Irag) & I would NEVER vote for a MAN telling women what they can do with their bodies.  When a man can get pregnant & have to experience an unplanned pregnancy then they should be able to have control over abortion laws. 

I lived by a military base for a LONG time & I do have to say I was absolutely AMAZED at the perks on base.  The neighboring towns were in financial ruin but on base there was EVERYTHING!  I am not saying this is right or wrong, I am saying there are many, many more perks then the pay.  Lower taxes on cigarettes, food, alcohol, etc.  Bars, pools, & practically anything else wanted or needed is right on base. 

On the whole "Socialist Russia" comment, geez, do some research!  America is HATED by other countries, Americans are fed propaganda every second of the day about how good we have it & how bad every other country is.  If someone questions it people come out & accuse you of being unAmerican.  Socialized MEDICINE does not mean American will become "Socialist Russia".  Hilary Clinton was all for socialized medicine, that is until she was paid off to back down from her position on it.  I could say so much more but I really don't have the time.
