    Fox News Channel: Boehner Offers Millionaire Tax Hike, Fox News Confirms
    Fox News Channel: Domino’s Founder Sues Feds over Health Care Law
    Daily Star: Lebanese banks still view Syria as important market
    Asia Times Online: M.K. Bhadrakumar: Russia changes tack on Syria

    As dramatic changes unfold worldwide, my mind appears to be set. President Barack Obama has a second term – to even his astonishment, if I heard correctly – and other countries across this planet are accelerating whatever timetables they had for their separate agendas in response. Unfortunately, it might only be a matter of time before some random spark turns into a larger conflagration, engulfing even the people who started it. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood appears to have overtaken Iran as my new favorite visible group of Sharia supremacists on the planet, but thus far, I seriously doubt that they have any other options left to them, to say nothing of the Salafis. On a different note, Russia could be up for a political maelstrom of its own, one more probable consequence of modernity’s acceleration worldwide.

    What changes would you like to see brought up under this administration – and Congress, such as House Speaker John Boehner – in the next four years?

    What political developments are most likely to pop up to surprise this country?

    Give WizardTrubbish the credit for inspiring this thread, and feel free to talk about any major trend, from the implosions throughout North Africa and the Middle East to the transition to an information society, from the energy revolution across North America to various cultural shifts – one of which I’m personally tracking and supporting as best I can – centered as they will likely be around the course of the United States of America, including its government, up until Inauguration Day 2017.

    I admit that I voted for Romney and was shocked to see that Obama won but personally I didn't really like either candidate. I agreed with some of what Obama said and with some of what Romney said, so I basically flipped a quarter.

    that being said...

    The economy is the biggest issue I am interested in. I am curious to see what happens with the fiscal cliff and then what happens after that.

    Education is next. I believe I remember hearing something where Obama mentioned that he wanted to help college students in school and the ones leaving to find good jobs. This is interesting to me since the student loan percentage rate doubled recently.

    I wasn't suprised that Obama had won, I watched polls closely for the last month till the ellection.

    Eitherway I hope that that Obama and the house republicans can find a way to avoid the fiscal cliff.

    WizardTrubbish Enough of that

    This WizardTrubbish guy sounds amazing.

    Anyway, I supported Obama in November. I don't think he's the greatest president we've ever had, and he may have his flaws, but I definitely prefer him over Romney.

    So it appears Obama's going to try for new gun control laws, according to his press secretary Jay Carney. Even several pro- Gun rights Senators and Congressmen such as Joe Manchin seem to be open to discussion on restricting gun access. Additionally, there seems to be a growing number of public support for stricter gun control, as a petition for stronger gun control sent to the White House's official site got more signatures than any other petition on that site.

    Obama would be making a mistake if he were not to address guns during this administration. There are just some issues during your administration that occur in which you have no choice but to address.
    I would love to see the issues of cyber security and information security addressed through his administration, since his campaign and subsequent presidency saw an absolute explosion of the way technology is used in communication and everyday life. Especially since the Cyber Security Act recently failed in Congress.

    If we can't use Fox news, than you can't use your news network of choice. Which I am assuming is CNN or some other left wing source.

    and marioguy, I doubt it. he has more important things to worry about than spitting in the face of a religion, he already does that enough anyways. I'd rather him concentrate on the economy and things that actually matter

    Anyway, I support Obama. Seeing Romney's comments about why he lost make me feel like I made the right choice. That man hasn't learned a thing.

    Openly supporting homosexuality for one. I really don't want to get into another argument about this though, so I apologize for even bringing it up. I have already stated my thoughts on the subject.

    Since you don't want to get into another argument about it, what about another option?

    I don't care, I'll get into it.
    Conservatives just have no clue what they want. So they don't want the government to touch their money, their guns or their health insurance, yet when it comes to allowing two HUMAN BEINGS to marry OR when it comes to what a woman decides to do with her body, they are all for government involvement, claiming a higher moral ground as their justification for this viewpoint.
    On my facebook tonight, I saw a poster of Timothy McVeigh as a justification of allowing you to still bear arms, because he killed people without a gun. So a terrorist is your poster child for anti-gun control movement huh?

    You know, there's this cool thing called separation of religion and state.

    And just because your religion is against it, does not mean ALL religions are. You act like Christianity get's to decide for everyone else.

    Not to mention, dealing very specifically with contraceptives, a large number of women use them in religious organizations that state that they take exception to their use. Should they? That's a debate for another time (i.e. the objection or the women using them). However, it is worth noting. It probably won't hurt their religion (as it exists now) as a result, unless there's something written in the holy documents that states that you can accept contraception, but only if it's earned by yourself with no governmental interference. Additionally, contraceptives have medical uses past their, er, obvious uses.

    It also protects against rape-induced pregnancies, which may very well be where this conflicts with the all-knowing, all-powerful, universally-benevolent father figure and His followers' beliefs.

    To be honest, this is how the whole voting process is. Not everyone is a Democratic, but we got Obama.

    The majority decides the whole it seems. I don't disagree with your post though.

    Yeah everyone against Christianity unite!!! <_<

    Posters like you two are why I rarely take part in debates on this forum anymore. Probably should just stay out of here with how everyone scoffs at anything remotely faith based

    Yes there is a thing called separation of church and state meaning the state can not interfere in religious practices of any individual unless there is a needed reason by the Government ( Taxes for example ) or is not available in another way.
