made that choice for a reason and that ability to choose is at the foundation of democracy.
I like to look at the demographics to the voters too. Over a month ago I said that Obama was going to win because Romney had to overcome huge hurdles
and in a tight race there was no way. One such hurdle was that Obama was guaranteed to get close to 160 electoral votes from 6 states. Those six
states like CA, NY, IL, ME, OH and PA I have zero ideology in common and I don't see those states as what America should be like.
With that said the other demographic of how counties voted is interesting. In FL Obama got 12 out of 67 counties but the few he got were big city
population areas, the same in his home state of IL where he got 22 out of 102 counties, but once again it was basically Chicago and one other big city
that trumped most of the other 100 or so counties, OH is 16 counties out of 88 for Obama and we see one or two big city areas trumping the whole
It is hard to find a state where Obama pulled the most counties even when he won the state, and the demographics that his voting base was basically
one or two big cities in many states. So I really wonder what drives this, is that what America is now with the ideology of just the big cities? I
personally see most big cities as a hell hole I would never want to live in, but that is what drives our elections, and Obama did a masterful job of
cuddling up to the unions, minorities, dense subsistence populations, and people with more radical views that we see in the typical big city.
So basically these big cities were the driving force to his victory and I just have zero in common with the way they live and think.
What did other Americans see that I might not have? See...I disagree with Republicans, but I do not think they are Nazi's...i know they are good
people at heart and voted for what they believed best for the country...what did they see? Where-as Republicans seem wed to this idea that every
Democrat and now over half the country are "Socialists"...How long can one cling to that hateful falsehood and still recognize we are one American
I see Obama wanting to get something from nothing. A big government doesn't mean socialism, but it does mean that we most likely cannot afford it. I
keep wondering where do we get the money to pay for everything, when a large population of America is on some form of subsistence who pays for it?
Obama was great with his class warfare, but it has been shown over and over the numbers just do not add up. We have seen that the tax raises on the
rich can run the country for 10 days and that accounts to nothing...so where do we get the money to pay for a bigger Government? What do we do when we
hit 20 trillion with no way out of that hole?
These are questions that I ask and there is no answer with Obama to fix it. Hopefully his 4 years of on the job training has evolved him into someone
that can actually get something done. I kind of feel that is what most that voted on him feel, and that is a sorry way to think that America had to
suffer for 4 years just so he just might get his act together...lol
