I haven't taken the time to read the comments over the various pages leading up to this, yet. This is just my reaction to the election, and to a
ridiculously titled thread on ATS that was cancelled before I could reply to it.
It seems that most Americans realized that Mitt Romney was not "looking out" for them. Romney eliminated an entire 47% of Americans because they
did not mean anything to him. Romney was out to protect his people: the wealthy elite and corporationso (which, in his view, are people). PEOPLE of
the middle class know they are under attack as the wealthy get wealthier and the poor struggle harder and harder. Romney said to President Obama,
"Attacking me is not an agenda." Well, that is precisely what Romney/Ryan did: attack, blame, attack, blame.
People know that the economic disaster was gift-wrapped for President Obama by the previous administration and their eight years of terrible
policy-making which benefitted the rich and big corporations. An analogy is that they caused a major physical wound. President Obama put a bandage
and dressing on that wound. The wound will not stop bleeding magically. It keeps bleeding until a scab is formed. The scab is not painless and it
takes time to heal. The republicans did everything they could to prevent that wound from healing with a highly successful strategy dubbed "I hope
you fail." Several republicans actually said that their primary agenda was to make sure President Obama would not have a second term. They
essentially flipped-off the country, America, and stonewalled everything in a brilliant strategy of non-cooperation. Look what happened, or rather,
what did not happen. The lowest scoring congress: ever. Good job, fellas,thanks for "giving it" to the American people. People know what they
did. That is one reason why President Obama was re-elected.
The average American has no advocate. President Obama has done and is doing his best to look-out for the middle class. The rich don't even see
anyone of "normal means" as people, more like cattle. The rich feel entitled to making 20 million dollar severance packages while average folks
struggle to put meat on their tables and gas in their cars. When the economy had crashed, they threw $7 million dollar birthday parties for their
children. There is a huge gulf of inequity in America. Sure, throw those wealthy parties and gain those huge salaries/bonuses, but when so many
people are suffering below the poverty line in America, something is hugely wrong. America has become a veiled ARISTOCRACY.
People know who is at least doing his best to look-out for them, the average American of average means. Romney gained so much support and money from
people because the rich wanted to keep paying less in taxes than struggling middle/lower class folks. It simply is not fair and cannot work any
longer in America. However, the rich control congress because they pump so much more money into the system than middle/lower class people can.
That removed/blocked thread on ATS was titled: Everyone who voted for Obama is a traitor to the country, --or something like that. Stated or not
stated, there is a huge amount of HATRED towards the guy, --more than just not liking him. Hatred. Venomous hatred. I'll say it: a lot of that
hatred is racism. Only, other reasons are given. The economy. His policies (which are similiar to G.W. Bush, only Bush didn't get that venomous
hatred). What's the main difference? I think it is clear, and people KNOW what the hatred is really about. For people who think that others are
not perceptive to their true nature, just know that WE know what the venomous hatred is really about. Say what you will, deny, deflect and hide.
Know that people KNOW.
