And they, or should I say we since we 'all' have to live w/ the results (Living under Bush's Rule wasn't fun for half the Country, remember?) and 'we' wanted and elected Obama twice despite a 57% eligible voter turn out which 'should have' preferred the Republicans.
So you math wizards, what percentage actually decided the election? I'm coming up w/ a big 27-or 28%, which means something like 76-78% of the total electorate didn't want Obama as Pres, and even less wanted Romney. We must pay attention to all citizens, not just those willing to go to the polls.
Like it or not, divided or not, we really are all in this together.
Perhaps while sleeping during the campaign some have awoken to the tune of "the times they are (finally) a-changin" (sorry, couldn't help myself after holding my tongue so long ;)) and have hopefully realized that ticking off half the Country doesn't serve the interests of the elite any longer.
Like Mike Tyson getting his butt whipped the first time, their cover/scam on the American people has been exposed (at least to those with their eyes open and changing the channels...often).
This election says much more than the first time around. To deny its meaning simply allows for the continuation of denial that convinced the Republicans they were going to win in a landslide (because Gingrich said so :roll:) and going down that road w/out some 'honest' soul searching will finally result in their own downfall.
Now, if they could only take the Dems down along with them 'we the people' may be able to do some real damage repair.
Its always been about we the people, less than half of whom don't even bother to vote and the majority that do vote on BOTH sides are pretty much misinformed and/or misled, not the knucklehead politicians wanting our $ and telling us whatever we want to hear in order to get it. Hopefully this fact is finally beginning to sink in w/ a majority, time can only tell.
And despite all the denial rhetoric; Its 'always' been about class, the 'have it alls' and the rest of us. Its been this way for thousands of years and again...., to deny this reality subjects us all to continued slavery.
There is a major push taking place right now that I urge all citizens to participate in; Regularly contacting your Congressmen/women and demanding they relinquish the authority/benefits they've 'self-appropriated' for themselves, such as pay raises, pensions, health care and special rules/privileges that only apply to them, whether serving or retired.
Congress should operate under the same laws they make for the rest of us and 'we the people' should at a minimum, be asking (no, demanding) why they are not. To do any less IMO is un-American. Simply voting in Presidential Elections should not be the 'minimum' expected from an informed 'democratic' citizenry. Active participation MUST be in order to keep it that way.
Sorry to be so long but its been awhile (you've all been awfully and wonderfully entertaining during the campaign, thanks :-D until next time.
