Maybe voters didn’t know their lives really did depend on the outcome

There are a good number of people who don't want to know or just don't want to accept it.

This smacks of bills of attainder, which are prohibited by the Constitution.

Historically, they were passed by legislatures as reflected in the prohibition in Article I Section 9. Since Chairman Obama has assumed dictatorial powers anyway, and only wants Congress to rubber stamp and legitimize what he was going to do, the NDAA authorization just follows the current pattern of executive tyranny.

The Nazi death camps were liberated and the inmates just stood there. Were they having trouble believing they were finally free? I suppose so, but only for a while. Were they too weak to leave? In some cases, but most could walk. Were they waiting for someone to take care of them? To a degree, but combat Soldiers aren’t caregivers. They left to continue fighting. Why didn’t the inmates rush through the gates to freedom? THEY WERE USED TO THEIR DEATH CAMP LIFE AND THEY WERE AFRAID OF WHAT WAS OUTSIDE OF THEIR PRESENT UNDERSTANDING. They were afraid to leave the place where they saw brutality, degrading of people’s humanity, mass murder, the crematoriums. They were used to the hell on earth of the death camps and were afraid to leave. Fear is a tremendous motivator. Look at Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. It doesn’t matter if that lower need is actually met if the person fears it can go away without their control.
The single, black mother of three in government housing in a big city is afraid. The Democrats have made her afraid. Would she take a job as vice-president of a big corporation for a salary of $1.2 million a year. Darn right she would. And she’d work hard to keep that job. The Democrat voters aren’t just terminally lazy. At least not all of them. We just have to drive out the fear the Democrats keep throwing at them.

"All conservatives should register as independents."

I'm planning on doing that.

Who needs a job when you got the “safety net”?

“I believe in God, I also believe God sat this one out. Reason being, God gave man free will and the will of man at least at this time in our life is to eliminate all Godly virtues from our society. I’ve been flamed before for this opinion, still it is my opinion.”

You are absolutely correct. God help us

And now, 300 million people face the possibility of being targeted for death by their own government.

Socialism always fails. Eventually, the socialists run out of other peoples money. In America, the socialist/communist left has run out of other peoples money to support it welfare army. There's not enough to go around anymore. Someone has to die.

Every socialist leader throughout history has killed off thousands of his own people so those who were left, his loyal supporters, could eat.

Welcome to the U.S.S.A.

I think of all the young people who voted for Obama. They may have a change of heart if they are unfortunate enough to have a high risk infant. They will watch helplessly as the baby dies because it was denied admission to a NICU under Obamacare rules. My mother-in-law is 82 and still lived independently. My wife and especially her bleeding heart liberal sister will have a hard time accepting that their mother will likely be denied care under Medicare because of her age and history of cancer and diabetes thanks to Obama’s death panels.

“...just imagine what God thinks about all this evil.”

I believe in God, I also believe God sat this one out.

Blessed are those who read aloud or hear the words of this prophecy and observe the things written in it, for the appointed time is near.
Comfort one another with these words.

“All conservatives should register as independents.”

That is exactly what I am doing next Friday.
