    Of course it did...do you think 47 million ppl on food stamps wanna give it up? those on disability wanna give it up? Nope...freebies, the undoing of the America we love...ron paul said it best..."We're so far gone. We're over the cliff," the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop" program. "We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things."

    No question about it. obama bought off the ignorant "entitled" with the free stuff that comes out of tax-payer money. He sold any lie he had to to every group he had to sell it to. He essentially made chumps out of all of them. The kicker: Most are still too ignorant to realize this.

    Romney said 47% of the ppl would not vote for him and he was completely correct. Ppl wanting hand outs, ppl already sucking on the govs teat, stupid ppl, minorities that think BO is a minority, women who want their sex life paid by tax payers and muslims and commies. No one of any intelligence would possibly have voted for him in 08 but to reelect him is pure insanity..

    WE HAVE BECOME A WELFARE COUNTRY. 50% of Americans don't even pay any taxes. You think that you know this country now. You just wait in the next 4 years. We won't even have a Constitution. The U.N. will be calling all the shots from the W.H.

    When Obama wants to give students below market loans, it's giving away "free stuff".
    When Romney wants to give students below market loans, it isn't.

    This is a false narrative. There may be a small handful of people who voted for Obama because of their entitlement mentality, but they're the minority. Most people voted for Obama because they think he's the right person for the job. I know that's why I voted for him.

    Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon

    "The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president."

    They're entitled to their opinion, of course. I disagree with them.

    This past election has proven the fact that the Dems have been working at creating an entitlement mindset in America for a long time....and its reached the point that between the "Obamaphone" crowd and the leftwing brainwashed, we are truly outnumbered. Its next to impossible for people who have stuff just handed to them to vote that away...and the others? They have no idea what America is supposed to be about.

    Apparently we have reached a place where about half of Americans are willing to destroy the country and steal from their neighbors and even their own children for minuscule hand outs like birth control. The labor participation rate is only 63%. That meant about 40% of working age adults literally live off the backs of the other 63%. That is clearly unsustainable. Obama promises free stuff stolen from American citizens to his thief supporters and the republicans simply expect able bodies people to take some personal responsibility am somehow the republicans are the ones painted as irrational. It makes no damn sense. It is a sad day in this country.
  • Don 2012/11/10 12:07:04
    We're past the tipping point.
    Too many leaners and not enough lifters.
    Until entitlements are reformed so that democraps can't buy votes, we are doomed.
  • Todd~AFCL 2012/11/10 08:24:33
    Too many listened to the lies from the left, claiming Mitt was going to cut off all of their "entitlements."

    Absolutely. They sold their souls for a few trinkets. I can't be bought at any price.

    nope, the moderates rejected the hate, fear, and white supremacist actions of the republicans. They were in fact, their own worst enemies. If they don't change, they'll continue to lose. I wonder how many more elections it will take before the light goes on.
  • nononse... Crank_I... 2012/11/10 08:12:46
    Romney is a moderate. Certainly no conservative. "white supremacist actions of the republicans"? Expand on that....I remember the blaclk supremacists actions of new blacks panther members holding billy clubs at a voting place in 2008. I would have called law enforcement.
  • RhinoRT Crank_I... 2012/11/10 14:43:45
    Oh you mean elections like the one America just had november 6th?... Where the US House not only maintained House control but gained seats? republicans may not have took Senate control but did gain seats. 2014 is just around the corner and I know of "at least" two more that will be gained and quite likely more.

    Elections where the majority of the states elected or already had Republican Governors?

    Or how about the election were in Arkansas, a state that has had a majority democrat house and senate since its inception, but just elected a REPUBLICAN MAJORITY House and Senate for the first time in 138 years... that light? And in 2010 replaced 2 liberal State Representatives with Conservatives, and this time around replaced the other 2 liberal representatives with Conservatives. in 2010 it replaced one of two of its liberal US Senators with a Conservative. And the other ones job approval is hovering around 15% and will most certainly be replaced with a Conservative in 2014.
    Is that the light you are talking about?
    b. hussein obama may have won reelection but Republicans absolutely did not lose.

    Moderates had little or no bearing on this election. And and thanks for bringing up racism...how many examples would you like me to post of hate, fear, and racism from the left?

    It is time to look for strong candidates from the right...Romney was smart, but not strong..I'm looking at Ted Cruz Pres. and Marco Rubio VP (he needs to get a little older...I believe he will eventually make an excellent Pres.) With all the nasty, corrupt things the left did to win...you will need to "fire to fight with fire."..not weak pansies...seriously we need some really tough candidates and backers!

  • StarWarsBob 2012/11/10 05:37:22
    Funny how Romney's 47% live mostly in red states. Of the top ten states that have the most people that paid no taxes, Romney won eight of them. The only two states of the top ten that Romney didn't win was New Mexico and Florida.

    GALLIPOLIS — Food stamps in Gallia County is a slow-growing business, but a substantial business nonetheless.

  • StarWar... gizamondo 2012/11/10 06:21:10
    23 percent of all residents in Gallia County are currently receiving food assistance? Or 7,200 individuals? That seems pretty high. The overall number of food stamps recipients in Ohio is about 16%, or 1,842,240 out of a population if 11,584,414.

    Ohio is 34th on the list of the 50 states with the most people that pay no taxes.

    Your statement is? Mine was "Food stamps in Gallia County is a slow-growing business, but a substantial business nonetheless."
  • StarWar... gizamondo 2012/11/10 06:42:11
    My statement is that many of Romney's 47% are working Americans, or senior citizens that voted for him, including 162,000 that are in the top 10% of money earners in this country, just like himself.
  • gizamondo StarWar... 2012/11/10 06:46:41

  • StarWar... gizamondo 2012/11/10 13:38:53
    Can you read? I said "many of Romney's 47% are working Americans, or senior citizens that voted for him .....".

    If you read the article that I linked to, you will find that the majority (over half - 54%) are working and pay income tax, it's just that they have deductions and credits that make their federal tax liability at zero, qualifying for the 47%. Here's the breakdown:
    income tax deductions credits federal tax liability qualifying 47 breakdown

    This idea that President Obama won because there were "more takers than there were makers" is an absurd Republican myth, probably started by Frank Luntz.
