Pretty silly of you to regurgitate that tired excuse about buying votes considering you voted for Obama in 08.
Heck Vegas, I've explained my truly "silly" vote for Obama in '08 many times. I even apologized in a public letter to my local newspaper. For me, it was about health care; I realized Obama's potential, took a shot in the dark re Wright/Ayers/et al, and figured that Obama would at least do the right thing re healthcare. Never imagined he'd use it to "fundamentally change the nation". A lot of defining water has run under the bridge since then.
And if you deny or can't see that the reason that Obama's electorate votes Dem/Socialist for what they get from Government, is "silly"
then a meaningful dialogue is impossible.
Unions (private and public), single mothers, illegal immigrants, Blacks (ADHD youth 'disability'), and Corporate (Green and Wall St.) government cronyists...all BOUGHT with Treasury money...were enough to tip the scale. Throw in Hollywood, MSM Media and College Socialist Ideologues, misguided Greens, old line Democrats and a sprinkling of well-intentioned but naive fools like I was...and the national election of Statists is a fait accompli.
That is why I predict a rebellion against the expansion of Federal Government power will come in the form of LOCAL entities telling the Fed to shove it. Marijuana laws just the tip of the spear. 51% won't really matter, when it comes to real governing by the POTUS; though the bully pulpit most certainly can affect (unite or divide) a wildly divergent and antipathetic populous. Obama has divided. His tactis will only speed up the dynamic of the rejection of Fed Power. Just takes a whole for the realization to hit home in the street.
I know one thing for sure...I'd hate to be a Muslim Brotherhood construction company waiting on a USA check to start building their mosques over there in Egypt. Much less a MB pilot, waiting for delivery of those F-16s.
Things are fixing to really..."fundamentally change".
