Not that I'm saying anything...

...but Bill O'Reilly sounded exactly like my ex-husband when he said "they voted for Obama because they want stuff".

I imagine so.  Stuff like respect, consideration, the chance not to starve on the streets as the Plutocrats make fun of them for being so stupid as to be poor.  You know, stuff.

Also, government with a modicum of responsibility towards those governed, rather than one of a size to be conveniently drowned in a bathtub.

Stuff like rights?

One of the major roles of government should be to expand rights, not take them away.

Too many politicians forget they represent *ALL* of their constituents, not just those who voted for them. Nor does every vote mean those constituents agree with the entire agenda of the Party.

Yeah, I want stuff like roads, schools, police and fire departments, clean water, safe food. I don't think that's asking for too much? Especially not when I'm *gasp* actually willing to pay taxes for it. Unlike some corporations and rich white guys I could name...

I've been hearing so much of this- those who voted for Obama are takers. Ummm...no. I know how much my husband and I give to charity, I know exactly how much time I spend doing my best to help those around me. I'm a giver, in the truest sense of the word, and that's why I voted for Obama.

...because absolutely *nobody* with a 6-figure income voted for Obama...
...because 3/4s of Hollywood and 80% of the music world can't get medical care without ACA...
...because it's INCONCEIVABLE that anyone who isn't hungry thinks that no one else in our incredibly rich country should be...

*scratches head* They didn't? Oops, I'd better go check our last tax return...maybe we really *didn't* make as much as I told the government we did...

Speaking as a European (ish, I live in France but just went to the UK to see my mother) you can't imagine how relieved we all are that Barack Obama was re-elected. :)
