How we got here

Everyday I ask myself how did this happen, thinking about the current administration who’s policies, which if unchecked, are sure to turn this once great nation into a third world country, or worse. How did we elect a President that insults our allies and kisses up to the enemies of freedom as he rushes headlong to institute policies of a purely socialistic nature? A president who won’t “meddle” in the affairs of Iran or North Korea but forcibly dictates to Israel, who tells Russia that our defenses can’t protect us from attack. Who in his own words from Audacity of Hope: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” he seems to prefers sharia law over democracy.

How did this happen in America?

Total 2008 Voter turnout is estimated at 60.7% – 61.7% of all eligible voters.

Obama garnered approximately 65.97 million votes and McCain 57.77 million, lets see, of all the eligible voters in the United States 33% supported Obama 27.7% supported McCain and 39.3% didn’t vote! Hardly an overwhelming victory.

More math – African Americans comprise 13% of the electorate, 98% of those voted for Obama. If the African American vote mirrored the voting preferences (33% Obama – 27.7% McCain) of the entire country then Obama would have lost to McCain by over 6 million votes.

What does this all mean? Nothing really just that numbers can’t be trusted.

The greatest majority chose not to vote, indicating their happiness with the status quo! Why do we wonder how we got into this mess?
