Obama being replaced by a moderate would be nice indeed. It'd be good to have someone to the left of the alternating far-right and center-right presidents of the last 30 years as a change. The rest of your post is just sillyness. Thank you for the laughs.

I know where it's from. It's just that it has nothing to do with what I said. That quote isn't a reference to the awakening of the Old Ones. It's about their slumber.

Depends on where you're looking at it from. If you're considering his positions from the far-right position of the GOP, then he his being center-right looks moderate. But if you look at the whole picture, center would be moderate, and he's to the right of the center.

Nothing. The first sentence is about their eternal slumber, and the second is insane jibber-jabber, or if it does have a meaning, it's some sort of higher truth that our pitiful three dimensional minds can't comprehend. "... Even death may die?" If it weren't from the Necronomicon, I'd call it pseudo-philosophical bullshit that means nothing. However, since it is, I'll, instead, call it an insane rambling that means nothing. After all, that is what happens when you have an utter lunatic try and write a book. He is called "The Mad Arab" for a reason.

Death may die is referring to a metaphorical death of death, rather than death literally dying.
No book had ever really hinted of it, though the deathless Chinamen said that there were double meanings in the Necronomicon of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred which the initiated might read as they chose, especially the much-discussed couplet


Furthermore, his madness was most manifest in his worship of the Old Ones during the height of the Islamic conquests of the 8th Century.

It's poetic reference to the destruction or removal of death, 'waking up' from death.

Although I'm not convinced that you don't realize this, I think you're just too stubborn to admit that you're wrong.

2012...

Has anyone watched the news lately? What about WWIII... or the whole world sink into chaos? Reading about the things that happen all over the world in just a few months i get the creeps... When did it happen the last time, that there were half a dozen Revolutions in 3 months?
