IT'S THE GREAT "WHAT MOTIVATED PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR OBAMA?" GAME!!!!
blueunicorn6 | 11/24/12 | blueunicorn6

Posted on 11/24/2012 9:23:03 AM PST by blueunicorn6

What things motivated someone to vote for Obama?

Here are the rules:

1. List each motivator and then show what percentage that motivator was for their total motivation to vote for Obama. 2. Motivators must add up to 100%. 3. Yes, we know they are full of crap, but that's not a motivator. 4. Extra points for creativity.

Good luck!

1. Freebies at someone else’s expense (50%)
2. Race/Gender/Religious hatred (50%)

How else do you explain the large percentage of blacks, Latinos, Muslims and women voting for Obamao?

Jews are more complicated along with Catholics. Not hatred, but life-long preaching of wealth redistribution.

Do you think more than a few folks read the A. C. Doyle book, A STUDY IN SCARLET?

From an Englisman’s point of view it is a very damning view into Mormonism.

The Dhimmis ran a Muslim and won, we ran a Mormon and lost. Lesson learned, start with a better field of primary candidates.

Nah we’ll keep right on Huckabeeing the rep. primaries till our party is as dead as the WHIG PARTY.

Fear of not being able to get health care (a lot of my friends and I were laid off a year and a half ago; all of us in our 50’s, all “uninsurable” at nearly any price -fortunately I landed a with benefits a few months ago-; nothing else (Constitution, flag, tradition) means SQUAT if you can’t get affordable health insurance). Some even here don’t get it- you can do everything right and still find yourself uninsured, and uninsurable at any cost you can pay- at that point the worst portrait anyone on FR could ever paint of “2016” as scary as needing medications or a transplant and not being able to them. And we already have ‘death panels’- they are just run by Insurance Adjusters now.
-65%
Sheer dislike of Romney, “corporations are people” and the entire concept of the kind of finance that Bain does (or any finance at all beyond a local bank loaning to a local business) To be honest, I know of no one except on FR or WSJ who likes Citizen’s United.
-30%.

Dislike of the coded racism displayed by *some* anti Obama protesters, and the antipathy and comments about the First Lady. The Tea Party had best fact up to the fact that there *ARE* people who appear to be racist, or can be made to appear so with minor editing. It only takes one idiot in a crowd, left or right, to give the other side all the “evidence” they need to reaffirm their prejudices. A not to all politicians “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ‘CONTEXT’ ANYMORE’, like it or not, left or right, if you utter a sentence, or string of words that can be construed as stupid, backward, ignorant, etc THEY WILL BE TAKEN THAT WAY. Neither left or right is pure in this respect.
-5%

Apologies if you wanted silly, but the above is a pretty close breakdown of the friends and co workers who voted for Obama and why. Unscientific as hell, but don’t ask if you don’t want the answers.

I have always dislike the two party system. I don’t think it serves the interests of the people well at all. Moderate Republicans and Moderate Democrats have much more in common with each other than they have with the “hard core” wings of their respective parties.

Like Rush has said so well, “You can’t run against Santa Claus” and win.
Socialism is a disease that has infected our culture and it looks like a civil war is inevitable. This was the goal of the Fabians all along. There aren’t any good choices left. Give me liberty or give me death, still is true today.

Thanks.
If the health insurance company you have paid on time for 27 years all of a sudden drops you, and there is simply no health coverage available, then nothing. else. matters. Nothing.

We had a chance to fix healthcare, and our spineless politicians and their associated lobbyists did not. Enter Obama. Free-marketeers saw it coming, screamed about it, and no one gave a damn . . . “conservatives” included.

1. Tax the rich which means the guy in the immediate tax bracket above mine 25%
2. No more rinsing out the old condoms. Obama will make sure my employer provides a fresh one each time 25%
3. Gay undocumented latino SEIU union women wanting free medicaid to have an abortion before they marry their gay lover as well as amnesty with subsidized transport to and from the border. Did I hit all the demographics on that one? 32%
4. He black 13%
5. Other guy is white. The same 13% as above
6. I am getting messages from the fillings in my teeth to
self destruct. Best way of doing that is another Obama term. Too bad we could not vote in a Dem House of Rep to put us on warp speed to oblivion 5%

Many wanted to give Obama a chance to finish what he started. Too bad they’re ignorant about his intentions.
