    Libya and Nigeria have a lot of oil. Im sure other african nations also could produce quite a bit.

    Id say the chinaman is getting most of it....or will be getting it.

    We all make mistakes... Especially when we don't thoroughly understand what we are doing in the first place...

    The guy was a virtually unknown political element before he stepped into the ring, and he maximized that fact to his advantage. He was in the right place at the right time, looked right for the part, and told the people exactly what they wanted to hear...

    The only good thing that will come from this presidency is that now maybe more people, on both sides of the isle, will thoroughly vet any potential candidates, and pay much more attention to what they are actually doing while they are in office...

    No they wont.

    As long as it is a republican in office then part of the people will be fine with whatever they do and will find a way to justify that presidents actions just as the democrat voters do when there is a dem in office.

    I agree!
    Neither slime party will ever get my vote again.
    I take that back, Rand Paul may have a shot, that is if he keeps partial to Libertarian values!

    No way. The difference being the loyal Dems like an anti-American commie alien in the office and that is fine with those hard core commie lovers no matter what. Republicans are not even in the same ball park here. Gees. Thank you very much

    Would love to know what the differences between bush/clinton/bush/obama actually where.

    More war, more entitlement, more regulations, more government, more taxes under every one of them.

    Don't ask such hard questions - you have to make it simple for the people to get involved.

    It's the 'R' or the 'D' before their names that makes them good or bad for our country. I couldn't get any simpler than that.

    I can not say if you Boss is right or wrong, but surely he was correct that he made his decision based upon what was important to him, and not the label of the party.
    If you want to be a sheep, then just vote for your party regardless.
    Or take an active role, and balance the good and bad of all, and make an educated choice.
    Hold your Representatives responsible, best start at the local level.

    Funny guess you haven't heard of Korea, Vietnam, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Dominican Republic, Panama or Granada really. Gees I thought most on here were a little smarter than that and your boss is a real dummy. Thank you, thank you very much

    You are beyond hope Efl if you do not see the difference. I hate to even explain the obvious. Gees. The modern day Democrats are pushing for a total socialist statism type government.

    Some Republicans are RINOs and some will bend with the wind to keep the press from calling them extremists if they want to reduce the government. You have some true conservative Republicans who are pushing for less government and control but you have no Democrats who are for a smaller government.

    Now Elf if you or anyone else tries to claim different then all I can say is that you are telling one big falsehood (being nice now) to defend the communist aims of the Democratic Party. Thank you, thank you very much

    I'm beyond hope I guess, because the communist aims of the republican party disgust me as much as those of the democratic party. I'm not talking about what they claim they will do, but what they do. Can you point to a single instance where government has been shrunk when under the control control of republican? The only time republicans are for small government is when they aren't in power, the same way the only time the democrats are anti-war peaceniks is when they aren't in control of the military. Wake up glen, all republicans since before lincoln are RINO's. It's very simple. If you want power you are not for smaller government, all republicans are politicians and want power. To get said power they will tell you what you want to hear in order to get you to give them to you.

    It gets even simpler. All republicans and democrats are liars.
