Some people are just plain retarded!
How about the South secede from the North? That way the rednecks can live in the past and wear their cowboy (carnival) outfit everyday, gun down whoever they dislike, ditch their trucks for a horse, start slavery again or segregation, turn the KKK into a new government.
I mean come on? The democrats had to survive 8 years of Republican regime of fear and abuse from the riches, we somehow survived and so will you.
It makes me want to say, it's your turn,  Mu ha ha ha ha ha!!!!
Lord Obama will crush you!!! >:D

Screw you democrat! Obama is the worst president this nation has ever had and He will drive the U.S In the ground. Then those who succeeded will form a republican country.  Also I find all of those remarks Insulting, a horse? Come on. And Denim everything isn't a carnival episode. Fear and Abuse? Ha. that's not true at all.

Here's where I really have to ask...why did you need to add "democrat" to that statement?

Obama is the worst president this nation has ever had

No, there have definitely been worse.

and He will drive the U.S In the ground.

People typically call God as a capital "He" so I'm trying to figure out if you mean God is going to destroy the U.S.A because Obama was elected, or if you think Obama is God.

Then those who succeeded will form a republican country.

Succeeded or seceded? Two different words you know.

Blk, you aren't proving anything by responding to childish posts in a childish way.

Because there is a huge war between Democrats and Republicans (which kinda of follows what Anakin/Darth Vadar said right before attacking Kenobi), since blk is republican, and the poster he responded to attacked republicans, therefore said poster is democrat.

Personally, I agree with the view that all diehard democrats and those that vote for the democratic candidate are idiots, I also think those that are diehard republicans and those that vote for republican candidates are idiots.  My reason is because they are both politicians, and I have little faith in politicians.

This is all dandy and fine until we hit the ad hominem and parochial generalization. I could be a die hard supporter of either side, and be well read up on both, hence my massive support.

Could be. Though I believe that would be a rare species indeed.

Basically what I meant in my previous rant is that people voting for a candidate "because they're a republican/democrat" or the like is one of the major causes of our troubles. We aren't informing ourselves about the issues, instead we're letting people tell us they're something (and let's face it, knowing if someone is a republican or democrat really tells you almost nothing about their political standing) and voting blindly.

Back to the petitions, the people wanting to secede aren't making things better. It's a statement of discomfort in the nation, sure, but it's a childish one. Likewise with the people signing the petition to send off those who signed the other petition. Our problems won't go away until both sides grow up and learn to educate themselves on actual issues instead of "patriotically" following what they think is "American."

Actually, it's a relatively reliable source of having a rough gauge of political stances.

I think they are educated in some form or another. They need to view it from another side. But democracy is always like that; messy. And the fact that ''state competence'' is a notion so faded and jaded doesn't help; people think the state is devilish and the like.

Only on the order of knowing whether one falls into a certain very broad range. You may as well know that they like a number between 1-1500 or 501-2000.

I think they are educated in some form or another.

I'm pretty sure (based on my interactions/conversations with people) that most people think they are educated in some form or another, but really haven't looked into it. They learn some basic information, hear some rumors and...create their own view of the person. So while a few things are right, others are just kind of out there and you may as well be talking about a different candidate with every person you talk to.

They need to view it from another side.

That's a large part of the issue. People don't realize that there's more than one answer to many problems, but instigating a bunch of conflicting methods doesn't gain anything.

But democracy is always like that; messy

Indeed. Democracy isn't such a great system if the people aren't informed/educated. It also doesn't work when everything comes down to one side or the other, we no longer have a moderate faction, it's just republicans vs democrats and each side voting for their own and against the other for no other reason than they belong to one of them.

Because the person is insulting us Republicans.

No, there have definitely been worse.

Like...? (btw don't even THINK about bringing Bush into this.)

People typically call God as a capital "He" so I'm trying to figure out if you mean God is going to destroy the U.S.A because Obama was elected, or if you think Obama is God.

Typo I mean Obama will ruin America. The people who are seceding are the smart ones.

Seceded.

Only on the order of knowing whether one falls into a certain very broad range. You may as well know that they like a number between 1-1500 or 501-2000.

It's more like you get the general idea of there views by which party they're from.

Politics is never about details for most.

I think the advent of social media is helping to solve some of those problems.

Which is another problem.

I think the advent of social media is helping to solve some of those problems.

It solves the problem of people being unable to find out information. It creates another problem of there being too much, especially in the form of speculations and predictions.
