RANT ON: I swear, last evening as I rode the DC Metro underground home after a long day, I could not believe the riff-raff crowding the Metro cars and station. Amazing, a bunch of back-pack wearing 20-something year-olds, none in a suit or clean clothes, singing and clapping and chanting and dancing. . .”Obama, Obama, Obama. . .” Bleated over and over again. And these people have the right to vote? I travel quite a lot, and a substantial portion of my travels include Africa (sub_saharan and South Africa).
I truly witnessed African tribal behavior on the Metro, the dancing and chanting, and all that was missing were the AK-47’s and shots being fired into the air.
They are unwashed, obviously weak-minded and swayed by a personality cult. They are NOT thinkers. They are not men. They are unthinking children following the most colorful ribbon and glitter-stone.
It is a sad thing to observe, as these Obama-bots worship the man, not his ideas (what are those?), and they whole-heartedly voted him into office?
This is not good for the US.
When President Regan was elected, the jubilation was not for the man, per se, but for his ideas, ideas that extolled the virtues of this Great Nation and championed the American people and cause.
The Big O, The Messiah, The Chosen One, is worshiped not for his ideas—what are they anyway—but because, well. . . just because.
I am truly for the first time, concerned for the future of the states.
Bu that's just me. . . and today, inauguration day, is a troubling demonstration of the power of personality over ideals.
Basically, I have seen nothing to sway my opinion that Obama-bots are nothing more than simple dirty hippies. RANT OFF

You're right. And what we are witnessing is the fruits of 1960’s-era radical ideals pushed into the public education system (and higher education) combined with the mind-numbing brainwashing that is pumped into the citizenry every day through pop culture.
These two forces, combined with the propaganda of the MSM, necessitate an effort on the part of the citizen to learn what has really happened, what is really happening, and what will likely really happen based upon critical analysis of history and current events. This means that it is hard work and that each citizen who wants to understand what is really happening has to go through multiple rounds of discomfort as each time they learn something new or discover a new perspective, requires them to shake up the ‘knowledge’ they are already comfortable with and, perhaps, dethrone that knowledge and replace it with something closer to the truth.
I can't stand these masses of the young and of youth-worship today. The people you saw on the metro are the same lazy, stupid, brainwashed ‘youth’ that littered the streets of Seattle for 10 years when I was there. You try to engage them in conversation and it is like trying to talk to a sheep.
I prefer the company of conservative youth who are hungry for reasoned knowledge and, more and more these days, just about anyone over 70.

(The people who cheered when OJ was acquitted are the same ones cheering now.)
That’s how I feel. This whole election cycle has gone beyond just “I don’t like that guy” to total fear for the nation. I have never feared for the end of America. Maybe some pains, maybe worried about taxes being too high, but never that the end could be in sight.
I do fear that today. Amongst the chanting, the singing and hand clapping.
He represents a free lunch, an easy job and an apartment or home with little or no effort. If you commit I crime, Obama fights for less punishment. If you do drugs, he approves. If you kill your unborn children, he will pay for it. If you work hard and save, he will tax you to pay for that smelly 20-year old.
The Marxists have infiltrated the media, education, law, government and businesses...only an armed revolution will cut out the cancer.
I fear it may come sooner than imagined.

(In the end, we all are Conservative, some just need their lives jolted to realize that fact.)
