    In an attempt to add a little substance to this:

    No one can deny the historic moment this is in terms of electing an African American to office, for that I am proud of America, disagree with Obama as much as a I do there's at leat that credit I can give him.

    For those of us on the right worried about freedoms, Fred Barnes on Fox News asked it best: As President will he be who hesays who is going to be; a uniter, bipartisan, etc. or will he continue to be what is record has shown him to be? Opposing gun rights on every vote he's ever cast, for abortion on demand, for card check voting in union organization.

    In my young life I have yet to be this worried and uncertain about the freedoms I care about being trampled.

    He'll actually return a lot of freedoms to the American such as the Right to a Speedy Trial and No Cruel and Unusual Punishment. Specifically, what rights do you think he'll take away? The only one I can think of off the top of my head is that he'll partially take away the second ammendment. He really isn't as radical a liberal as he's been painted out to be, at least not on spending.

    Look at his actual voting record for the answer. Removing the 2nd amendment on the COnstitution isn't radical enough for you? Ooookaaayy. If his voting record is any indication I would look for overly heavy gun regulation. The freedom to not have someone looking over your shoulder when you cast a union vote. The freedom of a child to be born once he reaches the point of being a human. In short I expect a major expansion of the nanny state. The man could turn out to be a bigger flip flopper than Kerry. Even in his acceptance speech he usef the phrase 'self reliance', which I have preached to the nth on this board. Unfortunately nothing about his past in terms of voting or his plans for the future indicate that is what he's about.
