    You suffer from ignorance which is too common in our country. A sad belief that the President controls our economy and stock market. Worse yet, its assigning the problems of the day to one man or office, because its too hard to think about what the real answer really is. Pathetic.

    • Fine.

      If it does not matter who the president is, then lets pass a law to make Clinton President for Life.

      Remember - it does not matter.

      YOU IDIOT!

      You eat your own propaganda but don't try to shove that manure down this 50 year old throat - I have lived and seen what it means and how fast things change with Presidents and their initiatives.

      They are the most powerful people on earth and things always change radically within 6 months of a new power in that office.

      Sometimes the change occurs even 3 months before the "figure head" arrives in office like it did the last time, you know when the election rigging was so blatent, it caused a scene.

      I watched the way things unfolded in the past 2+ years and I have concluded its impossible for any republican to win an election in any free society. The only way they get in is when the powers to be decide the people are docile enough to tolerate one of their bought lackies in office.

      Reagan was probably the only exception in the past 100 years.

      In any case - you need to get a grip of reality.

      In that reality you need to realize that for the USA to hold together and not go the way of a Bannana Republic or the Soviet Union we need to be very careful who we allow to be put in office.

      We also need to be very vocal about how pissed off we are, so that those in control don't get too cocky, kind of like NOW.

      It would be nice for the people to gain control, but I am not sure that ever existed. So all we really have is our messages of disenchantment that we send. For the WWII generation, that was a powerful message because those people concured a world and it would have been very easy for them to take up arms and concur those in control.

      Perhaps our current leaders think we are bunch of pussies so that they can do whatever they like and get away with it. Well maybe we are and maybe we are not - BUT there is a hell of a lot more of us than them, so they need to watch out.
