That is, quite simply, magnificent.

I say we've got two to three years left before they start rounding up dissenters and sending us off to Nazi-style concentration camps. I've got a little more time, cause I live in Texas

I disowned them this morning. On Facebook and through an email. But fortunately my parents are diehard Republicans, and a sister. It's only the ######ed up brother in Delaware, piece of ######, scumbag mother ######er who is a Democrat, and another sister in Philly who won't tell me, but I'm almost certain voted for Obama. They are dead to me now. And I will not under any circumstances attend their funerals in 30 or 40 years.

And now another favourites:

Oh-My-God. If I hear one more mother ######er say "it's only an election," I'm gonna ###### scream.

IT IS NOT ONLY AN ELECTION ASSHOLE.

We have a Marxist Muslim Fascist from Hell in the White House of the United States of America.

The country is dead. After 236 years, this mother ######er KILLED THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Can you ###### understand that???? Get it through your pee-sized little Nazi-loving brain of yours?

######, you ###### ###### me off.

Bloody brilliant! What a turn of phrase! I've worked for two big US technology companies and still work with them. Some years ago, I spent a few weeks with colleagues in Huntsville, Alabama, Also met colleagues in San Francisco, Chicago, Washington and have never come across views like that. so fortunately, as the elections have shown, it is very much a minority view.

Hover, I live in Lincolnshire and I know people here who do hold similar views of the UK. :O

The thing about the internet is it often makes extreme views seem more common than they really are!

That said WOW! I've often thought American's need educating in the real definition of the terms communist and socialist. I wonder what would happen if they got a socialist like Gordon Brown in charge!

And John yes Florida went to Obama in the end.

Has Florida made up its mind yet?

The Democrats have declared themselves winners, the Republicans have tacitly conceded but, as of the last article I can find, there is no official result.

A little follow-up - Eric Dondero Q & A.

There are plenty of nutters on both sides of the political divide in the USA.

Check out Michael Moore's video in support of Obama - A Message from the Greatest Generation.

With friends like that, who needs etc...?

That's brilliant. People like that deserve many, many rounds of applause.

Makes me sad that Florida's cluster######ery didn't give the election to Romney as it now means he avoids a cockpunch.

More so than Obama

Well that's not true, but it's also not what you said. You claimed Brown was a socialist. Which isn't true either.

Fair enough. Let me ask you this? Does he consider himself a socialist?

OH, yes. And he should know. In 1975 he advocated “a phased extension of public control under workers’ self-management and the prioritising of social needs by the communities themselves”. He called for “a planned economy” and for “workers’ power”, identifying himself with “Scotland’s socialist pioneers, Hardie, Smillie, Maxton, Maclean, Gallacher, Wheatley and others”—a pantheon that included both revolutionary and reformist socialists. What was needed was “a positive commitment to creating a socialist society”

Yes. Election stealing. Were the Republicans planning to do that again in the event of a close result? Is that what the Florida delay is all about?

There have been some quite devious tactics in place - the Democrats aren't entirely blameless but systematic party-political disenfranchisement seems to have been a Republican speciality this time around.

Florida's delay is because of slow counting and a high number of absentee and armed forces votes.

The things said in 1975 and the things done in office from 1997 - 2010 were so far apart that they might as well have come from different people.

You are right...they might have. They didn't though, unless he sacrificed his political convictions for the rewards of high office. Nah...a politician would never do that, would he? :rolleyes:

oops..here he is in 2007. see

The first meeting of the SI Commission for a Sustainable World Society – the body established to address the global environmental agenda, climate change and the issues of governance required to deal with these common challenges - took place at 10 Downing Street on Monday 19 November, hosted by Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Leader of the British Labour Party, where members of the Commission, the President and Secretary General of the Socialist International, along with Ministers from the British government, took part in an exchange of views.

Keith Joseph did. A minister in the Heath government and the Thatcher government he spent the intervening years attacking the very policies he'd been advocating between 1970 & 1974. For that matter so did Thatcher.

Major pretended to be a loyal Thatcherite until he became PM and then set about dismantling Thatcherism and clearing up the mess left by her and Lawson.

Anyway Romney and Republicans lost basically because they alientated too many women, black and Hispanic voters. According to a report I've just been reading the only black face at their "victory bash" in Boston was in the band.
