    The 47% doesn't bother me nearly as much as the much greater majority which seems to have agreed to continue to borrow ad infinitum and leave an economic disaster for future generations. We all seem to have "compromised" by accepting big-gov't benefits, small-gov't taxes, and a ton of debt for the future.

    Cheers! To be clear I don't think my rationale is the sole reason the election went the way it did....just a contributor.

    And you're correct the Caucasian demographic in this country is shrinking. That's one of the beautiful things about America is the melting pot effect and it's always changing. Illegal immigration is a whole other topic but if done legally it doesn't bother me a bit that the country is becoming more Latino or whatever...it's a natural progression.

    I won't comment on the morality of welfare.

    However, TANF doesn't come as a check in the mail. It's direct deposited.

    I disagree its all about welfare, some area's such as D.C are majority black, it was expected to be a Obama haven. Southern FL, Southern Texas, the Detroit area, and the city areas of Ohio were a shoe in for Obama aswell for the same reasons [hispanic majorities or black majority]. This election was easy to call if the rural parts of a state were counted but the cities were not [hello Ohio]...Did anyone really think Cincinnati, a majority black/hispanic city would have voted for Romney ? Hah, hell no. That is why Ohio was called for Obama early on to the dismay of Rove...Who apparently is so out of touch that he thinks black people would consider voting for a white person if there was a black candidate to vote for [which is just hahahahahahaahahahah! right!].

    Oh, now we're back to blaming blacks for Romney not winning. I was watching his convention last night, it was hard to spot a non-white face in the crowd. But, that's what he and the GOP wanted anyway.

    Furthermore, DC is worth THREE points. Oh yea, the blacks strike again.

    DC went Obama like 96% to 4%. But I bet nobody mentions race as a factor because that would be racist. So it must be because they are poorer right? So they need more welfare? Fucking what a joke.

    Just drive down Rt 7. You'll see where all the tax dollars are going.

    BTW, I grew up there. The was a relatively high mean income there due to all of the government and military working in the area, but not that much extreme wealth. Then, the corporations (lobbyists) figured out that having a headquarters in the area, made it a lot more convenient to deliver the attache case full of bucks to influence legislation. That's when all the manses started showing up.

    24% of Utah voted for Obama 72.7% for Romney. Let me guess what color those voters were. Its only a problem when the white guy doesn't get the black/latino/non-white vote but NEVER a problem when the white guy gets most of the white votes.

    those 24% in Utah were the only non Mormon voters in the state..
    had nothing to do with color in that state.

    And what about the other states in which Romney won by a landslide, are they voting along color lines? Or....is it just a black thing? White man can't win the election because blacks are allowed to vote. They ruin everything!

    There's a world of a difference between 95% (estimated AA vote) vs. 72.7%. The 95% is definitely racist.

    Vermont is one of the whitest states in the nation - 95% white and less than 2% black. Obama won it in a landslide (67/31).

    Sterilize people?, maybe you can rent a time machine and transport yourself to 1943 Nazi Germany. Some kid stole my bike from my garage which I recovered 2 weeks later, your saying I should have the right to shoot him on the spot for breaking into my garage? think about what your saying before you sound even more epically dumb and racist..

    You seemed pretty determined to find racists everywhere, so there's really nothing the facts can say to dissuade you. In your world, did Romney win?

    You obviously weren't paying attention to who I originally commenting to. Bfdd stated that blacks in DC voted for Obama because he was black (and everywhere else)..but it is racist to say so. Therefore, I asked the question of whether or not a Romney landslide win in a mostly white state can also be attributed to racism. Its only fair.

    Did Romney lose because he wasn't black or did he lose because he was never supposed to? Blaming the election outcome on blacks is stupid. DC would make little to no difference unless the race was neck and neck. It never was.

    You apparently have no problem with Octomom... maybe you should think about what you are saying.

    EDIT: And the only person talking about race is you.

    In order to qualify for welfare they should take a physical test if they pass the physical test they are not qualify for welfare they have to fine other ways of means to get incomes.but if they fail the physical then the state determined Hi needs.

    Gee, that's what Mit said, got called on it, lost the election and then said it again.

    Not the kind of statement to be doubling down on.

    :rolleyes:

    Nobody mentions race? That's what you righties constantly harp on.

    BTW, Washington, DC is 42.4% white http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/11000.html
    but don't allow facts to get in the way of a good ole' GOP false justification.

    I love this 47% crapola, that does not mean Romney should get the support of the other 53%. As Romney policies appeal to only the top 2% of the American people. All else is smoke and mirrors.

    America has only thrived on the basis of a strong middle class, and when all of American wealth concentrates in only the top 2% it leads to only depression and big business finding out its killed the thing it depends on, namely the customer.

    Exactly the thing our business oriented President in Hoover found out. As the GOP expected the American people to place their faith in Hoover hogs, hoovervilles, and Hoover pie in the sky.

    Wasn't that 47% thing debunked back when the video of Mr Romney talking about it was released?

    Does anyone understand the psychology behind people attacking poor people when the groups who really screwed them are the ones who started and sent your kids and relatives to get chewed up in two wars, almost drove the economy off the cliff, sent your jobs offshore, etc.
