Most of these posts completely miss the point. Obama and the democratic party didn't so much win, as Romney and the republican party lost. And the reason the republican party lost is because they nominated a candidate, Mitt Romney, that was virtually indistinguishable from Barack Obama on almost every issue. The republican party had an opportunity to actually be relevant and win back the white house, but they squandered it by actively working against the only candidate running for the nomination that could have won, Dr. Ron Paul, and nominating the banker's choice Mitt Romney instead.
To Obama supporters, I say don't be too smug; and to Romney supporters, do you really think things would be different if he'd won? Why? Both Obama & Romney support the unconstitutional "Patriot Act" that destroys the 4th amendment. Both Obama & Romney support the Federal Reserve & fiat "money". Obama signed, and Romney said he would have signed, the NDAA which allows the arrest and indefinite detention of American citizens without charges or trial. Both Obama & Romney would increase spending (but cut it 'later'... yeah right). Both support the unconstitutional wars for profit we are engaged in and both support starting another one with Iran. Both support the status quo income tax system and the IRS, only differring in details on tax policy.
In reality, we don't really have a "two party" system anymore. We'd need an opposition party for that to be the case. The republican and democratic parties have merged into one "Republi-Crat" party. There was no real choice, only the illusion of choice, in this election. The outcome of Obama's re-election is exactly the same as if Romney had been elected: the next four years are going to bring less freedom, a bigger police state, more war, more inflation, and less prosperity.
I wasn't able to vote for the man who should have been our president-elect by now, because the republican party was afraid of the truth. But I didn't vote for either of the "lesser of two evils" Republi-Crat hacks either; I voted for libertarian Gary Johnson, and my conscience is clear. Is yours?
