    No, he earned his votes by aligning to policies of government that fulfill, promote and enhance the purpose of the US Constitution.

    YES he did ! The mass majority of Americans that voted for him voted for THEMSELVES and their personal needs only.. NOT a one of them thought of their Country and fellow citizens..... It was the addiction to the Government PIG TROUGH mentality that put him back in office.....Its not what YOU can do for your country its NOW "WHAT CAN MY COUNTRY DO FOR ME" ???

    Hard to nail down, so just my opinion. Most people I've known over the years who have used welfare programs used them as intended. That is, only to help get back on their feet, which is what I think about a third of the "47%" are doing now.

    The other 2/3rds are more or less perminant takers, I believe. No idea how to prove or disprove either.

    I was taught that the only honorable way to live is to give honest work for my pay. Feed & shelter my family and take no debt I can't repay.

    Don't reject help, but don't expect it either. Help anyone I can after my obligations are met. Avoid the company of lazy layabouts who wont hit a lick at a snake.

    I see what you mean. Though with more taxes the price of everything will be passed on in several ways. The dollar continues to drop in value. And the credit rating for the country and the lowered value of everything makes everything worse and worse.

    I said that many times here, 0bama wants to transform America into a large Zimbabwe. Over there Mugabe showers gifts on his supporters and by now stole all farms and money from white farmers who were producers, redistributed the land to his people and they produce little or nothing.

    Are you people still stuck on this? The election is over, the President won, you lost. The majority of the voters in the United States did not buy the lies that austerity and more tax cuts for the wealthy would solve all our problems.



    The President won reelection based on his record and his policies. Get over it.

    No taxes on anyone making less than $55K? I woulda voted for Obama if that were the case! Also, I'd like to see where "entitlements" account for more than 50% of Federal Spending. Last I checked, 54% of our spending went entirely to defense.

    I'll say it once more, and I'll say it again. You can blame entitlements for people voting for Obama, but the reason he got back into office is because GOPers were trying to get everyone to vote against Obama than they were trying to get people to vote for Romney (the Libs did the same thing in 2004 and look where it got them.) Frankly, I think it's fair to distrust a political establishment that says entitlements, education, and health care are bankrupting our country but make absolutely no mention of our military expenditures. If this past election indicated anything to me, America is not moving in a more liberal direction; America is moving in a more libertarian direction. If you want the GOP to take over again, modify the platform in the following areas:

    - Get off the "school of choice" tangent and work to reform teachers' unions.
    - Stop with the "rape or incest" position for abortions and say "nothing after the first trimester unless it's in the case of fetal defect or danger for the mother's life."
    - Work to reform immi...

    - Work to reform immigration instead of supporting anti-immigration bills that only expand the prison population.
    - Quit trying to get a Federal Marriage Amendment passed and instead (at the very least) say that same-sex marriage should be a states' rights issue.
    - Embrace the regulation of cannabis the way the party embraces the regulation of tobacco.

    Please note, none of that focuses on expanding the welfare state. Rather, it treats personal liberty the same way that the GOP wants to treat fiscal liberty and allows citizens their own right to self-determination.

    No. The so-called Obama phones were available long before he took office. Food stamps...hey, if the recipients have risen...well, I receive SSDI and I can't qualify - God love those who do! If they can qualify, trust me...they need them. And with cost of living these days, under 55K a year is NOT an inappropriate cutoff point. Housing subsidies aren't anything new eighter. Don't know when Sec. 8 housing began, but it's older than a decade. And disability claims go up as the Boomers age and begin (like me) to fall apart. Don't worry, us old folks will die nd you'll get everything we have....what's left that is.
