Why are people so hostile towards those who believe differently than they do? I am voting for Obama because I believe that he is a better choice than McCain. However just because I'd like Obama's policies better than McCain's doesn't mean that I have ill will towards those who like McCain best. I think that everyone who takes the time to go out and vote has the country's best interests at heart. I don't understand the hostility and wishing harm on other Americans. Explain it to me please.

Maybe your just reading into things and taking things to personally.

But yet you post non-stop anti-McCain/Palin threads?? Maybe to avoid hostility, stop instigating it.

I suspect is has nothing to do with Obama and everything to do with how those views are expressed.

^^This hostility has nothing to do with how I expressed my views. She is actually wishing bad things on my family and on other people's family since more outsourcing hurt a lot of people. I don't see what that has to do with how views are expressed.

ETA: I was told that I cannot repost Kim's comment. So that's why my arrows are now pointing to a different comment. It was not directed at Bailey.

Perhaps this does have something to do with Obama, it's about understanding your own responsiblity in a situation. Obama has trouble with that too, perhaps why you can relate to him so well.
You constantly bait, bite, and attack and then we truly can't understand why you find it suprising that people aren't nice and sweet to you in return. I think it's all an act to get attention for yourself. You can't truly not understand that your actions invite reactions and you like them or you'd stop doing it. So I figure you enjoy the game and just keep playing.

So have at it.

Huh? Did I miss something? Who is wishing harm on other Americans?

She's hoping you experience the natural consequences of your beloved Obama, not the rest of us, who sadly will. Why shouldn't you be the one and not us?

If you believe in the messaih you have nothing to worry about.

Your comment was personal. I don't know how many people saw it before it was deleted, but there's no doubt that it was personal. And for your amusement here's a bit about my financial situation. Just so you know that you won't get your wish. [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img] It is not a repost.




dh's job can't be outsourced , we have
multiple streams of income and a very low overhead. We also have more
than one skill set and an emergency fund that will last us a good year.
18 months if we cut back. We've planned for the worst as every American should no matter who wins in 08.
