The takers now officially outnumber the givers people. I'm think I'm going to celebrate by quitting my job and living off of government cheese for the rest of my life.
I already know, regardless of my ability to work, that the feds will give me free health care, housing, food stamps, and a cell phone for as long as I want, without a drug test either. Once I tire of this, I will just qualify for some type of long-term disability because I've sat around on my ass watching TV, and eating MacDonalds for half of my life.
I'm getting my "fair share" from those who actually work and contribute to society. Why should I worry about a job when everything I want is handed to me courtesy of the American taxypayer. This is why I voted Obama this last election.
Yes, by all means, the voice of 53,000,000 Americans doesn't mean anything. Don't worry, hope and change will bring us together!
You sound like the typical Southern redneck Republican.

Very ignorant comment. We expect that from the Libs who love it Chicago style!
Imagining that you alone have the keys to the city is pretty hilarious. Anyone who thinks ANY politician "cares" about them is not very bright in my book, either. You seen the GDP or the deficit lately?
Keep drinkin' that Kool Aid!

#1 We've reached a point where the Hispanic vote and Black vote are enough to overrule the White vote - which is split due to liberalism and libertarianism.
A lot of Whites didn't come out to vote for Mitt Romney because they refused to vote for a Mormon - and openly stated it.
Obama won 40% White Americans vs. Romney's 58%
Obama won 93% Blacks vs. Romney's 6%
Obama won 69% Hispanics vs. Romney's 29%
Obama won 74% Asians vs. Romney's 25%
THE ELECTORATE WAS 119,535,345 votes (out of 314,737,000) Hispanics (16.3) are a larger voting bloc than Blacks (12.6%) (and increasingly more than Whites) it's obvious that the Black and Hispanic vote knocked Romney out. The Asian American population is just over 4.8% of all Americans.
Obama won 77% of the *** VOTE vs. Romney's 23%.
More ***s came out for the 2012 election than ever before
and they made up 5% of the electorate (119,535,345 votes).
Obama won 45% of MEN vs. Romney's 52%.
Obama won 55% of WOMEN vs. Romney 43%

The Republican party's problem is that its conservative and neocon interior only represents White Christian males. The Democrat's base is EVERYBODY ELSE. Unfortunately with America becoming increasingly mixed, that's simply not enough.
I am a REGISTERED REPUBLICAN and I believe in Fiscal conservatism. Problem is, as a 31 year old Black male, I feel COMPLETELY unrepresented by the Republican party as it is. Republicanism and "the republican party" aren't the same thing. The only real Republican I see is Ron Paul - but he's been marginalized as a libertarian running on the Republican's platform.

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?
