“The Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those wo are willing to work and give to those who would not.” - Thomas Jefferson
Obama managed to win a second term with a fraction of his 2008 7.3% margin. Voters have inexplicably doubled down on hope over experience. Only a subversive liberal fascist or a moron could vote in favor of “fundamentally transforming America” into a Euro style Socialist State. How is that working out for Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and the rest of Europe?
Single women, the youth who will inherit this record debt, liberals, government and union workers, and especially minorities from gays to Hispanics detrmined the outcome of the election. They now control our beloved country. Obama lost Independents and won less than 40% of white vote, the first Democrat since Walter Mondale to achieve that dubious distinction. How do you think a second Obama term is going to work out?
Obama said little during his campaign about his first term and even less about his plans for a second. Obama owes a debt to a pair of GOP appointees, and RINO Chris Christie, Republican governor of New Jersey. By joining the four liberals on the Supreme Court in upholding Obamacare, Roberts provided a stamp of legitimacy to the unpopular and expensive health care law. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s latest round of quantitative easing was an invaluable contribution to Obama down the stretch.
Obama will now have to govern an America he so relentlessly sought to divide. Good luck with that.
Obama’s victory represents a decline in national virtue and is a tipping point in favor of “takers” over “makers”. The people have chosen the Nanny State over the Constitutional Republic.
There are few permanent victories or defeats in American politics but “we the people” lost the most important election in my lifetime. The battle for liberty beings anew this morning.
Obama likely will end up winning a second term by 126 electoral votes. The Electoral College does tend to inflate leads a bit, since a candidate only needs to win by 0.1% to win all of a state’s votes. Still, Obama’s victory was the largest for an incumbent president since Reagan in 1984.
The popular votes are still coming in, but Obama has a slight lead with 59,621,436 to Romney’s 56,989,709. The Democrats regain control of the senate with 51 seats to the GOP’s 45 and the Republicans regain control of the House with 232 seats to the Dems 191.
