O.P. Cool  Obama FTW
Since no one else has done this yet :D.

Anyway, thank you USA on restoring my faith in democracy and humanity :).




On a side note, I might be either flying through the UK or Japan during December, on my way to India and I was wondering if people would be interested in a Plus! Meet...

Congrats to Obama? I haven't really followed the election but i've heard he was the better choice, but I think he will be a very high assasination target for "neo-nazi's". But congratulations and i hope a change is ahead in the USA.
...there used to be a signature here :)

.. I hate how people say that. Tbh, if you're saying people shouldn't care about race (I don't, at all), then don't say "thank you for restoring my faith in democracy" because a black person was elected president (Not saying this was your case, but it is in the majority of the cases.)

I also hate how some black people say people shouldn't care about race, and the only reason they voted for Obama was because he's black. That's hypocritical.


So anyways, I preferred McCain (I think the major/only reason he lost is because of Sarah Palin. She's dumb, and people feared she might become president because of McCain's age..). I hope Obama is not really a socialist. And that his tax proposal for the rich doesn't get passed.

I'm glad I'm a citizen of Spain though, just in case ;)

(Yay for three citizenships)

@Rolando, I was not referring to race when I said that... I was referring to not picking someone who was a republican... Not to mention, Sarah Palin in the Oval Office is a scary thought :O...


On a side note, socialism can be a good thing, look at the UK and Canada, but you don't have to worry about USA turning into a socialist country as that would NEVER happen. Overall, I think that a lot of changes are to come and need to come in order for USA to succeed as a nation again, and my country's prosperity also depends greatly on that. I think Obama is more of a progressive thinker in that sense that McCain (see McCain's view on Proposition 8)...

I know, I just said most people I know mean it that way when they say that. And I think Obama meant it that way when he said it tbh.

..and yeah, Sarah Palin as president is a scary thought.

RE: Obama FTW
Woke up at 5 am local time to watch some livefeed from MSNBC and follow the election with all the happy #banana family, now at lecture and I'm slowly starting to regret I didn't wake up later/go to bed sooner. I did support Obama as well, I don't know if McCain would havebeen a bad president, but for me Obamas ideas sounded better. We'll see during the next four years.

RE: Obama FTW
I was looking for a video on youtube for the actual announcement but i can't find anything? Help :P ?

McCain is too old by the time he does anything he'll be dead :P The only reason i wanted barrack to win was he looked like Pr. Palmer of 24 :P haha.

I'm interested in UK politics quite a bit but American politics is one big kufufel :P

Luckily, the USA has never known socialism and most Americans cannot grasp the concept as we Europeans do.
There, Obama is considered a left-wing politician, while in Europe he would be considered moderate right-wing.

He is not a socialist. Not by any means.

Glad he won, he will take the US a step further. It is my belief (and hope) that you continue to lead the Western society. No nation in the world evolved in such few time to such greatness.
I hate the fact that most Europeans go on rambling about urban myths  bashing the USA that make no sense at all. Most of them have never been there (and I do not blame them for that), it is simply bogus to talk about something if you are not capable of making a fair and impartial judgement about it.
