This election scares me

I've always felt that even if my candidate didn't win we would be fine and life would go on as usual. I don't feel that way this time. We are either going to go back to being a capitalist nation that rewards hard work or we are going to move farther towards the failed Europeon socialist welfare state model. We are either going to work for a living or vote for a living. This is the most important election of our lifetime so please get out and vote. Unless, of course, you are voting for what will be four years worse than the last four.

Oh no! I learned 4 years ago not to talk about politics, religion or dog food on a dog forum!

My lips are sealed this time around.

Oh goodness, can we have a politics free zone. This is the only safe haven I know of.

Politics on the forum rates up there with advertising puppy mill dogs for sale. Too much passion and heat.

i agree. No politics on the forum. One thing is for certain, life will go on no matter what an election brings! Life and our pups. YAY for that.

I agree, although I didn't learn it from the forum - but just from life in general. Just got back from spending a few days with my dad, and he started in - our views are pretty much polar opposite. I finally had to tell him that it was better that we didn't go there - I didn't want to end up on his $#@* list! I guess I did learn about dog food on the forum though, and pretty much just keep my mouth shut about that these days too!

Sorry. I figured anything goes in this section but if politics is a no no that's ok.

Actually Cawboy, I love talking politics. Even a heated debate. In fact I started a thread last time around... But it got very heated. I didn't mean to put the kabosh on this thread.
