Why do people get so offended when the truth is stated? People voted for him because he will give them things, plain and simple. They are not going to nominate someone that will not provide a boasted welfare system that reinforces people's jobless effort.
The raving woman on the street video is just an idiot who didn't understand she wasn't given preferential treatment by Obama.

on top of that...he wants to provide money for poor people so they can afford food and not end up on the streets?!OHMYGOD HOW DARE HE- WHAT A DEVIL! hes a DEMON!!HE WANTS TO RUIN US
Look, another uneducated republican poster. When will you people realise you are an embarrassment to everyone else including other republicans who happen to have an education and able to tell political systems from one another.While it is true that welfare would still be around if Romney was president, it wouldn't be taken advantage of like it is now. Obama wants everyone to be dependent on his big government, no matter what the cost is. That is the reason that our economy will not improve in the slightest the next 4 years. Democrats put the "social contract" above the economy, while Republicans put the economy above the "social contract". Obama is looking to make as many people as he can dependent on the government with Obamacare, and he is allowing so many people to be on and stay on welfare and other government programs so he will make people even more dependent on the government... this is also known as Communism.
Communism? I'm sorry but the Carter era ended long ago.

And Romney is saying this to his big money campaign donors. Do you honestly think they gave him massive amounts of money and wanted nothing in return? He was offering 'gifts' to the people just as much. It just so happens that Obama was offering things that the majority of the country wanted and Romney was not.
Too bad that Obama is spineless and weak OR bought out and equally as corrupt as every other politician. I doubt he will even try to give half of the things he said he was going to aim for. Presidential Candidate Obama =/= President Obama. They might as well be two totally different people.
Nothing will ever change when money controls both parties of a two party system.
There's a difference between charity and forced charity, wouldn't you agree? When people decide to be charitable, they give to things that are meaningful to them and often get to see where their money goes. Sometimes they even get to see who it goes to. Being able to control how you give your money away is vastly different than having it forced from your pockets and told "THIS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO, SORRY". When it's taxed it goes to nameless, faceless people who may or may not use the funds responsibly. Wanting people to take personal responsibility for their lives is different than refusing to be charitable. I'm not saying Republicans are hypocrisy free, just like I don't think Democrats are hypocrisy free, I'm just saying it's not as black and white as you'd like it to be.
Edit: Wow that was from page 5. I haven't looked in on this in awhile.

This whole situation sounds like democracy won out over corporate greed and removals of freedom - the things your countrymen state is at the core of your people -to me. Romney came across as the guy supporting large corporations and pumping more money in to the minority at the top, whilst removing choice and opportunity, while Obama was more invested in helping out the majority that work, through the healthcare support being improved upon.
I think that you've had a near-miss here in that Romney would've provided more for the wants and needs of people with lots of money and power than everyone else, yet people are only seeing how much Obama's changes is going to cost them. What would happen if Romney took power and his morality during his career was reflected in his presidency? The smaller, less powerful would be consumed so that the bigger and more powerful would profit further, and as president, the vast majority of your jobs and businesses would just be meat for the feast.
It's ironic because over 80% of the republican states actually take more from the government than they provide, whereas, of the states that went to Obama, 55% take more than they give in taxes. The people complaining about people living off of the state from the Republican side are actually taking more than anyone else, in other words.

It's always been Wankershim!
Republicans talk about welfare like its some sort of paradise land. Of course they should know since Red states are welfare states and Blue states are not...with very little exception.
If welfare went away, it would be red states that suffered the most not blue.

I have to laugh every time someone says that they hate paying taxes so that the lazy members of America can exploit the system. Every time someone says that, God kills a kitten. There are some truly lazy people out there, but if these privileged middle class children riding their parents' coat tails would bother to educate themselves and be worldly enough, they'd know there are plenty of hard working people doing 3 jobs just to earn 20k a year. I highly doubt that most of the people on these forums whining about their tax dollars going to the lazy have had to work more than 60 hours a week, and many probably haven't worked more than 40. You worked hard to get where you are? Please tell me how you were brought up in a well off middle class household and had your college education paid for by your parents/government grants and loans and you now work 40 hours a week for your 50-100k salary. I'm sure you had a real hard time getting there.
Didn't you hear? Gay marriage is a sin and is in the bible!"marriage protection"
But let's conveniently forget that pre marital sex is a sin, divorce is a sin, adultery is a sin, beating your wife is OK, and selling your children into slavery is OK according to the bible.
