What changes? Two examples...

People with conservative beliefs will be forced into re-education camps and shot if they don't fall in line.

Obama passes an executive order overriding the term limit amendment on Presidents.

Deficit goes to $22T by 2016. Unemployment never below 8% again.

By 2016 - a gallon of gas is $7. 70% on government assistance which officially makes us a Communist country. Remaining elements of the U.S. Constitution that haven't already been rubbed out are. Abortions available at Circle K & 7Eleven paid for by Federal government. GITMO is still open.

Reparations for slavery and amnesty for illegals.

And then pigs fly....

1. smith & wesson profits cintinue to soar as they've done since 2008 because any day now, obama is going door to door adn taking away everyone's guns (and bibles). 

2. people who buy guns because obama is going to persoanlly take them away will continue to be incarcerated at much higher rates for significant prison terms for doing stupid garbage with their guns (and sometimes legitimate garbage the police disagree with)

3. unemployment rate goes to -8%

4. rush and foxnews make record profits

5. obama comes out of the muslim closet

6. santorum comes out of the closet

7. the stock market crashes

8. republicans prepare next unelectable religious freakshow to challenge democrat candidate in 2016 if 6 above comes to fruition

9. nothing significant changes for ClubDirtSports.com Enterprises, LLC

1.  I will not be happy

2.  Probably nothing...we will continue to move towards a socialist/communist society where the government tells us what's best for us and continues to put in place "mandates" when we don't conform.  Jobs will continue to be lost to overseas markets because Obama is going to tax the wealthy who employ his middle class (genius).  The rich will still get richer because they are paying next to nothing for labor costs.  The middle class will disappear completely. 

3.  We will not see another black president for quite a while.

I think that further taxation is a real possibility for everyone that works for a living. 
Mind you the income tax was made for the top 1% at it's inception, but when the power of taxation is directly related to the power to give away money to your cronies, it is hard not to expand it's reach.  I think that this would also happen under Romney, the only difference being that his corporate buddies will have loopholes, but let's be real here.  I would be utterly shocked if Obama does not create loopholes for his cronies. He has already proven that he is not above this, as he granted obamacare waivers for unions and other contributors, and he has already helped GE gain a near monopoly in energy by waiving the draconian EPA regulations that are killing the rest of the industry. 

I also predict some form of gun regulation, be it another assault weapons ban, or a "nudge-like" Cass Sunstein solution, like adding a $100 dollar tax to each bullet bought in the united states.  

I think that Afghanistan continues to be a quagmire.  Even if we reduce troops like we did in Iraq, it is impossible to leave the region now.  IF we do we are ceding control, and our ability to keep Pakistan in check.  I kind of think Obama's hands are tied in this one, because Hillary will not want this failure on her report card when she runs.  

I think QEinfinity is the swan song of our global reserve currency status.  China is already done, Russia hates us, and the emerging countries in the oil rich kingdoms, are not going to be U.S. friendly.  
A basket currency approach is taken sometime around the End of Obama's term.  
Nobody pays attention because American Idol is on. 

Oil being priced in commodity/ currencies other than the USD, makes oil prices skyrocket.  

the layoffs begin,  unemployment never goes bellow 7.5%, but now it sharply rises to 14% almost overnight.  

Banks collapse, and the government attempts to bail them out. 

Hyperinflation.
Bread =$50 a loaf.
Riots, 
Marshall law. 
Death Destruction. 

Foreign governments are called in because our own military is fractured. 

Foreign troops don't leave. 

Change our flag/currency/ way of government. 

by 2020 we live in a colony of some other superpower.

some of you guys really crack me up.  You hang out on a political forum of a gambling messagebaord acting like you have all the answers, but i still havent seen one solution to creating jobs and getting jobs moved back here, except for the right wingers major plan of giving tax cuts back to the rich, which has already been proven many times, that doesnt work.

You guys better go hang out in your doomsday bunkers

That should be a great world you guys will want to live in. If that should happen i expect 90 percent of the posters in this  policital forum to get whacked the first day, due to not being able to defend yourselves with your keyboards

Why not fix the tax code? 
Why add to a flawed situation?It is what we did with health insurance, and it will fail under it's own bureaucratic inefficiency and waste. 

Why are we so afraid to change things meaningfully?

cd329... DO YOU NOTICE THE NEGATIVITY IN THEIR POSTS ?.

 

Doomsday is coming oooouuu !

Hey, they have been saying that since Reagan was campaigning.. I recall the ticking trillion dollars message board above his head in one campaign speech. He actually said...If we stacked all the trillions dollars in debt it would reach around the world.. Or some baloney like that .. What did he do about it  " NADA "

Don, some of these right wingers actually sit and pray for the country to go under, because then everything will be so much better here, with people killing each other in the streets for a piece of bread.

They are under this dream, that the day the country goes under, from that day on everything will be so peachy.

Theres lots of countries that already have chaos everyday, so if thats what their longing for, i dont know why they dont move to those places, then they wont have to waste their time complaining about the govt  every damn day of their lives.

Its sad how easily these right wingers have been brain washed by the talking heads into believing a collapse of the country is the best thing.

I guess some long for going from the 21st century back to the 15th century

 

Don, its nice to know theres guys like you and others on this forum, who actually love their country and dont want to see it go into total chaos

I guess some people are born with the gene to help others, while some people are born with the gene that tells them only to help themselves.  Those types of people are really bad for the type of society we live in

It is true,  I do have a negative view of the future.  
Past generations have not left my generation much but debt, unemployment, diminishing opportunity, and no real hope for better. 

I do not want this to happen (as you mentioned CD). I do not even think that what I posted above will happen, it was a bit of a joke.   I do think that we are in for a long prolonged depression due to bailouts, QE and a refusal to curtail our bloated government spending and borrowing. 
I think losing our reserve currency status is not only possible, but probable.  I think that you guys are seriously underestimating the effects that this would have on our country.

TY cd329.. And it's so true.. Can you just imagine if everyone had an assault weapon ?  This country would be like Afganistan. People killing people for nothing !

About 20 years ago a friend of mine, who was born in Jamaica, invited me to go back home with him to visit his Mother, his Father had passed away. They were very wealthy, his father owned a furniture store. All the wood was hand crafted by the natives.

Anyway, when I arrived at the airport, they had a car and a chaffuer waiting for me.

As we were driving through the countryside. I noticed many poor people living in old chanty type shacks...  His house was on the top of a mountain.

As we turned onto his entrance road to climb the mountian. A guard opened the gate, he was carrying some kind of machine gun.  I'm thinking, whoa now..  I asked my friend.. What's that all about ?  He said,  Don't worry, they are just guarding the house from thieves..  When I arrived in the house it was like a palace.. with a mountain view of half of Jamica, it was awesome. They had servants, ( mostly all black people, and very nice polite people ) waiting on them hand and foot.

One morning I woke up to a knock on my bedroom door.. It was a servant with my coffee in a silver cup set. I thought, dang. these people live like Kings.  But the rest of the country was like Haiti. Dirt Poor.

I'll finished this story later.. Got to go now.

Oh, absolutely no doubt.  But what does it say about the Republican Party that MITT ROMNEY is what they come up with as the answer???

If you don't laugh, you have to cry!!!

Goose- I hear ya my man. I cant explain anything that happens in politics.....it all for power and money and runs contrary to how they are supposed to operate.

Dont know if you listen to Howard Stern but Jesse Ventura was on the other day and I found he actually made a great deal of sense. He said that if people supported him to run on a no party ticket he would do it.

We need a 3rd party in this country. Maybe a 4th and 5th party even! This 2 party system is broken and corrupt.

We desperately need a third party in this country.  The problem is that if a Ron Paul or a Jesse Ventura even got a whiff of the Presidency, they would be blown away like JFK.

its good to see that there are people who grasp the situation instead of being sycophantic partisan lapdogs with nothing to support their failed ideologies
