HERE IS A TYPICAL FEMALE OBAMA SUPPORTER. I saw hundreds of them lined up to vote in South St. Pete, Florida. In my line of work I come in contact with many unwed moms who live in Section Eight housing, private homes with better living conditions than many hard working moms live in who pay their own way! But there is a reason for this madness. Politicians have learned they can keep themselves in power by offering free stuff to voters. The question is, how do we make it distasteful for voters in each State to elect politicians who offer free stuff? Or, are you ok with 51 percent of our population using their vote to enslave the remaing 49 percent?
If we can make 51 percent of America’s population dependent upon an Obama, welfare, food stamp, section 8 housing, college loan check, and now free Obamacare, we can then bribe them for their vote, keep ourselves in power and keep the remaining portion of America’s productive population enslaved to pay the bills ____ Obama’s Marxist game plan, a plan to establish a federal dictatorship and redistribute the incomes which wage earners, business and investors have worked to create.
"Who Gets Food Stamps?
The most recent Department of Agriculture report on the general characteristics of the SNAP program’s beneficiaries says that in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2010:
47 percent of beneficiaries were children under age 18.
8 percent were age 60 or older.
41 percent lived in a household with earnings from a job — the so-called “working poor.”
The average household received a monthly benefit of $287.
36 percent were white (non-Hispanic), 22 percent were African American (non-Hispanic) and 10 percent were Hispanic (Table A.21).
Update, Feb. 5: USDA data understate these figures, however, because participants are not required to state their race or ethnic background. As a result, 18.9 percent are listed as “race unknown.”) A more accurate estimate of the racial and ethnic composition of food-stamp recipients can be drawn from U.S. Census data, based on a sample of households surveyed each year in the American Community Survey. For 2010, Census data show the following for households that reported getting food stamp assistance during the year:
49 percent were white (non-Hispanic); 26 percent were black or African American; and 20 percent were Hispanic (of any race).
"Obama ran a very smart but very small campaign, which he could afford to do because he was running against a very small opponent," this Republican said. "The fundamentals of the election were the same all along, and they were this: When there's an incumbent no one wants to vote for, and a challenger that no one wants to vote for, people will vote for the incumbent. At no point did Romney give people any reason to vote for him, and so they didn't."
Obama won because he won every demographic except the white male vote
Exactly how is Obamacare free? Do you even understand what Obamacare is you dolt?
You know "many" that vote Republican? Please define "many" and may I assume that 15%+ of the "many" are without jobs?
I grew up in Baltimore City and attended BcPS's K-12; the last thing I need is "fear mongering radio" as I have first-hand experience/observations.
The Dems have and will continue to fail the black community. President Obama is nothing more than a palatable Sharpton or Jackson.
Brigham Young (1801-1877) stated: Shall I tell you the Law of God in regards to the African race? If the White man who belongs to the Chosen Seed mixes his blood with the Seed of Cain, the Penalty, under the Law of God, is Death on the spot. This will always be so.
One of the biggest conservative magazines in Black America right now, a good percentage of that magazine's overall subscription base reaches middle and upper class citizens of that group. That group is not in small numbers at all, believe me! We are talking hundreds of thousands nationwide.
Now even though that group has conservative values, there is a big disconnect with the republican party. Funny, in the early 1900's the republican party was the party selected by Black America. My how a century can change things, I'm not saying democrats or republicans or a third party are the best selection for that group. I am saying that there is a large base in Black America that hold conservative values but are disconnected from the current republican party.
Romney was put in a no win situation. He had to placate those tea party psychos just to get the Republican nomination. At that point it became virtually impossible for him to pivot to the center when he was starting at batcrap crazy.
"The revisionist historians have tried to “cover up” God himself by not allowing recent generations to know that America was once a nation of religious people. Now, over half the people in America are not well informed and are willing to believe the spoon fed propaganda from the Democrats and Republicans.
The Democrats and Republicans are notorious for wanting to stay in power. Their worshipers get their education from TV and their friends. In the future, after it becomes obvious that their plan failed, these “useful idiots” will still blame Bush for the economy, overlook Obama as they overlooked Clinton’s mistakes or think their vote counts and they actually have freedom while approving of wars overseas. Such people are the product of America’s decaying society whose reality has been warped by drugs and other selfish pleasures. America has gradually become worse from the drugs, rock and roll of the 60′s and 70′s to the drugs and rap music of today. The communists won while Americans smoked pot."
The stupid party has some work to do with minorities and women if they ever hope to hold office. They need to retrench these next 4 years and focus on a strategy particularly if the economy melts down.
The President won with a coalition of young people, minorities (and so-called minorities will soon be our majority), middle-class workers (maybe not the men, but he got the women) and women of all socio-economic backgrounds. This seems to me to be a pretty broad coalition. Blue-collar white men and a few white women, along with evangelicals, don't comprise a very wide constituency. The Republican base is numerous, but narrow -- and shrinking.
I hope that whoever analyzes the election results will focus, not on peripherals such as Sandy, but rather the central facts: Obama's record of support for the middle-class (symbolized by his rescue of GM); his support for reproductive rights -- and his phenomenal ground strategy. I was one of many, many thousands of volunteers organized by the campaign to canvas and call battleground states. People also could make such calls at home, by logging onto the Obama campaign website. We had our own version of Facebook, with local "pages" for each group. My group had over 200 such members, held two phone banks per week, and sent weekly buses into PA.
Obama did not rely on ads to sway voters; President Obama naturally is a community organizer, and he organized. He had a strategy that focused on holding key battleground states, and he deployed his troops accordingly.
It was a people-to-people campaign. If you want to know why he won, look to the man, and the people. We won it together.
The election was a referendum on two key issues:
1) The ability of Barack Obama to govern as POTUS;
2) The influence that extremism will be allowed to have on our politics.
The American electorate overwhelmingly approved of the first and rejected the second.
I found it interesting to hear Republican pundit after Republican pundit crow last night about how divisive Obama was during this campaign and how it will hurt him when trying to govern. But this is coming from the party that began this campaign by questioning the sitting POTUS's citizenship, religion, and whose leaders met even DURING his inauguration to discuss how they would obstruct his efforts and how they will use this fiscal crisis to assure he was a one term president. It rings hollow.
In spite of that, President Obama passed two signature pieces of legislation that are LAW and will not even need to be defended anymore - ACA and Dodd-Frank - and has assured that the tax issues that are the single largest driver of the current deficit will be dealt with this term. These items are law - and will not be overturned, only implemented. Ezra Klein had a great Twitter post about this
GM is alive and Osama BinLaden is dead is REALITY - not just a slogan. The greatest fiscal crisis since the Great Depression has been navigated. And while we are not where we want to be, we are moving in the right direction.
In other words, the American electorate accepted that Obama is a competent governor, in spite of Republican Obstructionism - that the economic climate has only IMPROVED since his election, and that the problems he inherited were exactly that - inherited.
As for extremism.....The Senate seat that most assuredly would have been HELD BY REPUBLICANS in Indiana, had they not nominated an extremist in Mourdoch, is now a Democratic seat. What should have been an easy Senate pick up in MO is once again held by Democrat Claire McCaskill, thanks to the Republican nomination of nutjob Todd Akin. Allen West is GONE, Joe Walsh is GONE, Bachmann may yet be gone - or she holds on by her fingernails despite being the WINNER of the Republican IOWA Caucases and a former front-runner for the Republican Presidential nomination.
Citizens United allowed unimaginable amounts of untraceable money be poured into the elections - billions and billions spent. But across the country - where BIG MONEY tried to most influence elections, they were repudiated by the electorate at nearly every turn. For example, in Michigan, Ambassador Bridge owner Matty Maroun spent $33 million of his own fortune to try to enshrine his monopoly into the Michigan Constitution - he was rejected 2-1. And American should be proud to see that, despite spending $100 million of her family's fortune, Linda McMahon will now be sent back to carrying placards around the ring at WWE cage matches.
