this is how I see it, and you dont have to agree or disagree, but I would like some constructive criticism.
this country can be compared to a large sailing vessel. The KEEL of this ship is the CONSTITUTION of The United States. As long as the keel goes undamaged, the prevailing winds can blow the boat over to the left, or to the right, but the KEEL will always right the ship.
To put this another way, a pendulum will always seek center. If the pendulums input takes it waaay off center, it tries, that much harder to find center.
This is why I am not "worried" about Obama. Even if he should somehow get elected, its not the end of the world as we know it, and the sky will not fall.
He will surround himself with others wiser in the ways of the government and its workings. And, fortunately in this scenario, the President does not really have THAT MUCH POWER. They all say "we are going to A B C", but they KNOW that they alone cannot do squat.
My point here is that as long as the constitution remains intact, we will be OK.
