This is freaking nuts some people are taking these results
This country will/would survive any person as president. Lets not forget that whole checks and balances thing. Worried about the debt? Write your congress persons since they are the ones that set the budget.

Oh yeah...forgot to mention this.
Want to guess as to which state has logged the most disasters and received the most federal disaster aid since FEMA was founded (in 1978)?
The President is one thing....I think the Lord himself might be trying to convince Texas not to secede.

Mental flexibility, some members here would do well to investigate this concept.
I can listen to someone with an opposing viewpoint without losing sight of the fact that they're also a human being. Some of you do not seem to possess this ability.
For clarity's sake, the above part is not directed at you SteveM.
I disagree with many of his policies, but that doesn't mean I'll completely lose my ability to identify his stance along the political spectrum. He's not even an extreme liberal, although I'm sure one could make a case that he's not a complete moderate liberal either.
I hated President Bush. I thought there was no way the people of Texas would elect a governor who was the lazy son of a Washington insider well known for two things. His bad business decisions (Texas Rangers), and
his preference for cocainehim being a draft dodger.
When he became governor of Texas I couldn't believe it. Here was a man who had done virtually nothing with his life besides take advantage of his daddy's wealth and position, and he was elected governor?
Then he ran for President. Once again, I thought to myself, there's no way he'll ever win the Presidency. Surprise! He did, not once, but twice.
I was firmly convinced he would drive this country down the tubes, and he did. However, never did I entertain the thought of secession.
I know that it would be very difficult for one man to wreck a country in four, or even eight years. So I waited for his terms to end.
I know some of you will automatically label me as a liberal because of this post. Guess what? I'm not, nor did I vote for President Obama.
If you have a hard time understanding this, you lack mental flexibility.Shut the hell up and train.
