The reason we lost the election is that 100 million Americans did not vote:

Do the math:
US Population US: 315 million
Illegal/under 18: 95 million
Eligible to vote: 220 million
Voted: 120 million
Screwed all of us: 100 million

So, solve the riddle of why these folks did not vote, and getem to the polls in 2014 and 2016.

I see a huge opportunity for a Real Conservative Party (TEA Party?) to capture the imagination and votes of these folks in 2014 and 2016.

We can save America, but it will not be an easy task!

The vote totals are Obama 65,428,715; Romney 60,754,175; total votes 128,402,597. That's a 4.7M deficit. Given demographic trends, we're going to need well over 5M additional votes.

There were 6M white voters who abandoned Obama in 2012. Unfortunately, Romney only picked up an additional million or so whites compared with 2008.

The largest pool of untapped voters are whites who sat it out. That's the only place you're going to find those 5M+ votes.
