    You are the minority now brother.

    You really think we can afford to go 1 - 1.5 trillion further into debt every year for the next decade? Oh, and lets tax the rich to make up the difference, you can tax them at 100% and it will only pay for 91 days of spending at the current rate.
    Sure you can. There's nothing you can do to prevent that anyway. It's in our monetary system that states build up debt.

    They give whites welfare as well. The problem is, the liberal media and Democrat cronies have brainwashed many African Americans into thinking that if they don't vote for the Democratic Party, then they're an "Uncle Tom" (or worse) and anyone who isn't a Democrat wants nothing more than to re-implement slavery.

    So what he's basically implying is that all black people and Latino people are on welfare. Even after losing the election, Mitt never fails to impress...

    Romney lost the election because of the ignorant views of his own party.

    Romney should have had this election in the bag, but all of this republican cohorts couldn't keep their mouths shut. The entire party started a crusade against women's rights in the middle of an election. It is no wonder the republicans lost so badly this time around (and not just the presidential election)

    As a trans woman, I can only thank my lucky stars the republican party decided they would rather upset the majority group (women) in an election year. There are more women then men currently, and you can't win an election without them.

    Edit: And I live in Massachusetts. We had Romney as a Governor. There is a reason he didn't run for re-election. It is because we would not have re-elected him and he didn't want the loss on his record when he went for the presidency. You may have noticed that Massachusetts went Obama in a landslide. We had him in an executive position and hated it.

    313,847,465 is the estimate of people living in the USA. Take about 70,000,000 off for people under 18. That leaves you with 243,000,000 estimated eligible voters. About 120,000,000 people voted. I'd say about 50% of the country voted.

To see how crazy that was, flip the target: imagine what would have happened if Obama had run on a "white people ought to pay more" platform.

    That's not something Romney, or any other potential presidential candidate, would be able to do much about.

    Why wouldn't he though? Even the rest of the world is still mainly in the slump started by the US crash which then started spreading worldwide. So it's not like other countries have found a way to get out of it faster. I think people still don't realize how big disaster it was, you don't just flip a switch and have your economy start growing fast again.

    when in reality, the white wealthy elite ARE the moocher parasite class that feeds of society, gives as little to nothing back as possible, gets tax break after tax break, lays you off/makes your job obsolete or performed by a machine or a 3rd world worker for 1/50th the pay, and then bitches about people wanting basic necessities in life like food, shelter, and health care, because of course they need their 4th yacht/8th mansion/etc. because they are the mighty JOB CREATOR class, all hail.

    and idiots line up to defend this shit as the famous quote went poor americans see themselves not as poor but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires, so they want to keep things as unequal as possible in hopes they too one day can enjoy this insane advantage over most other human beings.

    it does crack me up when people whoop themselves into a frezy over obama, who is a right-leaning centrist democrat who's only actual fault was trying to work with republicans and reach across the aisle to a party who were united in stonewalling anything he would ever try to do to MAKE the country fail so they could then say "hey look, he didn't magically fix everything wrong with the country in 4 years, lets go back to our policies that caused it all in the first place!".

    i challenge anyone to name actual things obama did that indicate he is a socialist/nazi/muslim/terrorist as i've heard so many wingnuts accuse him of being, without just linking to wingnut right-wing lie factories.
    So there is no rich people that are not white? Take a look at most of the government income, and you will see most of it is from the wealthiest.

    But thats what I am trying to say here...reality is changing - like for everything else. Probably white americans will be a minority at some point in the future. Thats not necessarly a bad thing though. The mix of etnic groups is changing in a lot of countries...so what. Not being white doesnt mean you are not contributing just a much to your country...

    I'm not sure where this notion of Bush causing the economy to crash comes from? Well I do know, it's a construct by the left-wing media. While Bush certainly was no economics expert and did quite a bit of deficit spending, that had absolutely nothing to do with the recession.

    The recession was caused by banks that were "too big to fail," failing, which can be attributed to the housing market. Now why did the housing market crash? Terrible lending practices by the banks under Bill Clinton's Community Reinvestment Act, which made banks give loans to people they knew couldn't pay them back? Okay, but why did the banks get so big? Bill Clinton repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, which separated investment banking from private banking.

    How were they demonizing certain groups just based on their complexion? That is my main point, the only factor would be how different they look, and nothing else. So it would apply to them as well.

    It's brought up because more people of a certain complexion are in poverty than others. But implying that they are given handouts purely because of said complexion is extremely racist. This isn't rocket science.

    yeah unless the republican party changes it's MO of pandering to White Male Christians, they really have no future. The country is changing, soon Caucasians will be a minority.

    the national debt is almost at 16 trillion dollars. You are saying that 13.6 Trillion dollars were added to the debt from 2001 until 2009??? And again congress has more to blame with spending then ANY president. No matter the time frame.

    It is extremely racist, and people still group all of them together, like because they are black, all of them are in poverty or some nonsense.

    It's funny how Republicans market themselfs as the debt fixers when in fact US was rather low debt country until Reagan took over. He then proceeded to explode the debt which makes it extremely funny that he is seen as some kind of conservative icon. After that Clinton stabilized the budget for a while and actually had budget surplus for the last couple years before GW was elected. Bush then of course cut taxes AND increased spending, a policy which Obama has followed leading to fast growing 16-17 trillion dollar debt.
