Romney is correct on this. Not necessarily about how they vote, but that the 47% are more suseptible to being bought off with big unaffordable programs that will break the back of the 53%.

I also think this is a great opportunity to put some spin on this with a simple retort. Romney wants people in the 47% to get good jobs, pay taxes and make that 47% a smaller number. Obama's only objection with that number is that he wants it bigger. More food stamps, more welfare, more medicaid, more low paying jobs, through policies that bog down the economy.

For Obama it’s all about growing the size of government unions even bigger. More “herders” for the dependent sheep.

So how does a policy based on additional tax cuts address this issue? For example, removal of the capital gains tax would put someone like Romney whose income is based off of investments into the 47%.

When 47% of the population will vote for a communist foreigner no matter how badly the nation is doing, the Republic is lost.

Even if the GOP had a real conservative instead of a degenerate coward, con man and liar as it's nominee, the groups the Founders warned about expanding voting rights to would still support the foreigner.

The sooner the inevitable collapse caused by ignoring the Founders and amending the Constitution to institute Universal Suffrage happens, the better.

The Founders didn't put a right to vote in the Constitution for a reason.

The collapse will be when the SS and welfare checks stop coming.

Then the Republic can be reset.

The franchise must be limited and determined by the states.

Incorporate term limits and rotate the Capitol amongst the States.

"Democracies have been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death." James Madison

Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. John Adams: letter to John Taylor, April 15, 1814

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.:Thomas Jefferson
