American Election Quotes from Facebook

Ok-ok. I probably shouldn't get political on this site, but my facebook keeps blowing up with hilarious statuses that I want to share. XDDD

 

"I'm kind of of the opinion that we ought to break off all those red states from the US and do what the south tried to do in the civil war: give government to the states and tell the federal government to stay out of our business because how in the world can somebody from a northern state know anything about how we do it down here? They don't even have Tony Chachere's outside of the south! For that matter, maybe we ought to just break off the states that currently serve Blue-Bell...they know a good thing when they see it..." ^ This one is probably the funniest and dumbest idea.

 

"our country is obviously split down the middle...so let's split! We would beat the Obama side because he is destroying our military...tons more to say but, I just don't have the energy. Sad day..." <- Military spending hasn't decreased...

 

"Well hell, he's back again. Why, America, why? The past four years have been hell on Earth. People, GOOD PEOPLE, have died defending a country that no longer abides by the rules laid down by our founding fathers. I could care less if the president is white, black, asian, man, woman or gay. None of this matters if the president is willing to shed blood, sweat and tears for his country. Mr. Barack Obama has done none of the above. He has kept no promises. He is not worthy of leading our powerful country. There are no words for the sorrow I feel for our country. There will be a civil uprising and our children will be the ones to pay the price for their parent's ignorance. What will be left of the USA once this terrorist is finished with us? We will be the weakest link. This is the death of USA and the birth of socialism. We're screwed!"

 

"Well at least I might finally get to live abroad. Cause there's no way in hell my family is gonna pay for Obama's mistakes." (Clearly, this woman doesn't realize that many of the plans Obama is trying to implement are things other countries, especially European ones, already do. XDD)

 

"well we tried, just remember all of you who put him back in, the next 4 years will be hell..we will be his little marching army, i sure hope no more americans will have to pay the price that our un ambassador did. way to go liberals!!!!"

 

"I mean no disrespect but I lived well under Bush's presidency. Bush made mistakes. We all do. And I know that Obama had one hell of a good mess to clean up. It's been like a mountain of dust swept under a rug accumulating throught decades of presidencies. The problem is that the rug is far to small to cover up the dirt and Obama ain't no Merry MAid." <-Neither is Romney

 

"I can guranntee, beyond the shadow of a doubt that, six days from now, ALL government buildings will be shut down and there WILL be soldiers marching in the streets. Want to put money on my prediction?" I bet 1 million dollars he loses.

 

"Well, we'll be a communist country soon. Wtg America..."

 

"Honestly I couldn't be more pissed off right now. Our country is ruined."

 

"IF YOU HAVIN ELECTION PROBLEMS I FEEL BAD FOR YOU SON I GOT 44 PRESIDENTS BUT MITT AIN’T ONE"

 

"Oh, you're moving to Canada? Funny how you didn't move to Canada during Obama's first term."

 

It just boggles my mind to understand how these people think. Obama is one man who has 4 more years to suggest plans, but he doesn't make the final decisions. Congress does. Shouldn't we be blaming Congress for passing Obama's plans instead of Obama suggesting ideas to fix problems? But it's amusing how much they think we're gonna become socialist and communist XDDDD. And honestly, our problems have been building up for years and some of them aren't Obama's fault at all.

 

Anyone have any funny election statuses/comments on his or her twitter or facebook?

 

You know...I like to think that Americans are classier than starting an uprising just because they don't like the president. We do have something called impeachment where we can force the president to give up his job whenever we want him to--as long as Congress approves it.

From my Facebook about the election:

 

From the Liberal side:

"Thank you so much Minnesota! This horribly stupid marriage amendment has been defeated! I can now sleep!!! Thank you to everyone who went out, voted no, and supported my rights! :)"

 

"I had to check every major news source just to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Gobama :)"

 

"Has spent 40 of the last 48 hours with a computer open and in use and feels quite odd about being separated from it for the past four hours." - She's talking about her constant monitoring the progress of the marriage amendment on internet. The amendment didn't pass and she's celebrating.

 

"One step closer to a Minnesota wedding." - She's gay, and the marriage amendment (which limits definition of marriage to one man and one woman) didn't pass.

 

"The 'women-are-one-group-defined-by-middle-class-white-interests' seems a couple stages behind contemporary feminist thought, yes, but I am extremely proud that a traditionally marginalized group has effected such wide-spread political change, and is now a deciding factor in presidential elections."

 

"We have a long road ahead of us as a country, but I am proud that MN said NO to the marriage amendment law. For those of you that voted yes that is your right and I respect your beliefs, but I'd like to remind you that secular marriage is not religious marriage and that laws like these strip gay partners of the LEGAL benefits and rights that go along with marriage. Imagine if you didn't have the right to make funeral arrangements for your husband or wife or any of the other legal rights awarded to married couples."

 

"Thank you to the Minnesotans who voted no (or left their ballots blank) and the truly amazing and creative work of Minnesotans United for All Families for keeping that hateful, discriminative amendment from being written into our Constitution. Last night was a great night for the LGBT communities and our allies everywhere. I am so proud of who I am and I am so thankful that people support me and my community. Love is love."

 

"Could not be happier to wake up and find out that repeatedly reading NBC every two seconds in aura Mayfair last night made everything worth it... OBAMA. MARRIAGE AMMENDMENT IN MN FAILED. WEED IS LEGAL IS CO. this is a GREAT GREAT DAY PEOPLE"

 

"Sorry, Mitt. You just suck. what did you think Romney was going to do? Magically create jobs? Lower taxes for everyone and still somehow balance the budget? Ehh...no."

 

"SORRY MITTENS BETTER LUCK NEVER!!!!!"

 

"making a shit ton of bacon to celebrate/calm my nerves about mn"

 

From the conservative side:

 

"Why am I on facebook right now?!?! So much anger, so much hate, so much pretention, so much gloating, SOOOO FEW SILLY CAT PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

 

"Cool USA, 4 more years of the same stuff. Now Imma watch Xi Jinping take over my country. Kthxbai."

 

"Kids look like a bunch of fags."

 

"just a terrible terrible day for america...... you have to be stupid to be enjoying the outcome of this election. It's unbelievable how ignorant the American public is... just disturbing."

 

"We have seen what Obama gonna do....Nothing.....except keep spending cuz thats all he knows how to do....plus obamacare which is just gonna raise my taxes to pay for worthless fucks......"

 

"LOL!! If Obama has his way with this health care, children like mine wont make it after im gone..."

 

"if you think for a second obamas not gonna fuck shit up for another 4 years you're gonna have a rude awakening in a couple hours. and i mean 'fuck shit up' literally"

 

"what about a President that has never balanced a budget, ever, how did that even happen? You really believe these current policies are working, HOW???? Have you ever had a poor person give you a job? ask that to all the people still looking for work."

I'll just leave this here. http://whitepeoplemourningromney.tumblr.com/

 

By the way, as a Canadian who sees Americans say 'I'mma move to Canada!' every time the US has an election, I have to say... I can sort of understand it when Republicans win and Democrats say it, but I am totally baffled when I hear it after a Democrat win. You can't stand to see America taking steps towards universal healthcare, legal same sex marriage, and decreased military aggressiveness, and therefore you will move to a country which has had all of these things for a while now? (Also, we totally don't want your crazies - please kindly keep them. XD)

Projects worked on: Suki Kirai Suki, Platinum Garden, Non Non Biyori, Mei chan no Shitsuji, Oyayubi Hime, Namae mo Shiranai, Folk Tail Tonakai, Snow Black Christmas

I'm retired from taking on regular projects, but I still enjoy occasional work without a long term commitment.  Feel free to contact me about odd jobs like JMTLs, TL checking / reTLing, TLing oneshots, or TLing single chapters for projects that are between translators. :)

@Tronny, I totally agree. When you see the Romney campaign headquarter, you can hardly find a non-white person in the entire auditorium of probably several thousand people.

 

The funniest comment I read online was something like "Romney has millions of dollars and could've just retire a comfortable life, but he chose to run for president. It shows that he really wants to help this country."

 

I really doubt any candidate for the past century really wanted to run for president because of the paycheck.

Regardless of what side wins, the "losers" comments usually ends up hilarious. And yes, it baffles me too that people are shouting out "I'm moving to XX!" which is usually a country with gender neutral marriage, female presidents and a social healthcare system. Not to mention low-budgeted military.

 

I sadly have nothing fun to share, we Scandinavians are more or less just going "Phew, mitt didn't win, the world is safe for a bit more"

 

Although I did see a picture with some mayans explaining the 2012 end of the world-thing with: "We thought Mitt Romney would win".

XD I think it's better for international policies that Obama won. Apparently, a lot of other countries besides the US prefer Obama. I keep seeing Obama quotes on non-US people's websites, and it just baffles me because Obama is completely talking about the US and not about international policies at all...

 

the Mayan 2012 prophecy thing - Hahahaha XDDD Explains everything.

 

And no, no,Tronny, we don't want our crazies either. Let's go dump them somewhere where they'll never find their way back to civilization.

 

...I just saw this from the tumblr site Tronny shared: https://petitions.wh...rnment/1wrvtngl

 

I'm moving out of Louisiana if it gets enough signatures. This is just stupid. Besides, 20,000 signatures isn't even a majority of Louisiana. That's unfair. >< I love my state though. T_T We aren't that dumb...

 

THE HECK?!?! People not from Louisiana are submitting signatures. 15.gif Why is that allowed? They don't even live here.

Probably b/c it doesn't matter and probably won't happen. But it does make you wonder... why would out-of-staters even care?

 

 

It's interesting though how Romney lost pretty badly in the state that he served as governor... You'd think the people still moaning over the loss would take the hint...
