Wrong again fellas, check you facts. Government is already bigger didn't you hear the news that Obama authorized the hiring of 2,000 more IRS agents? Ask your employers (if you are working) about the tax hikes which are coming for them and if you think it won't be passed to you well guess again. Gas tax heck they are even passing legislation to tax your employer provided blackberry or phone at a 25% tax rate.

Sarah, my guess is that you are lying. When you write, "I'd just like to know from you", you don't really mean it. You just want to rant and call people names and incite argument rather than invite debate.
True, -phile means: "one that loves, likes, or is attracted to" and I imagine that if you vote for someone that means they like them. Still, your "Obamaphile" terms sounds a little derogatory even if accurate. Plus, I imagine that there are a few people who voted for Obama who don't qualify as "Obamaphiles" - i.e. they were simply voting for what they perceived as the "lesser of two evils".
The next term, Liberals. Has a political meaning but at this site it's bandied around more as an insult.

The “Obama-Is-A-Boogie-Man” concept gets boring. Obama is one man in the context of a huge American political system. The Obama-haters have made him a star. Here’s a thought: What made Southern prejudice obscene to the point that the American mindset could not tolerate it any longer? That’s right, the indiscriminate hate, fear and derision! My point is simple, if the Haters continue to Hate, then they are fueling the system (person) they hate. Believe me I know what I’m talking about I just got my Ph.d. in Chemistry.
