The Real Reason Our Country Is Doomed: We Allow Idiots To Vote!

by Ben Hoffman

Part of why the guy with the truck won In Massachusetts was because Democrats were unenthusiastic about what’s-her-name and didn’t vote, but let’s take a look at reasons why people voted for Brown.

A majority of Obama voters who switched to Brown said that “Democratic policies were doing more to help Wall Street than Main Street.” A full 95 percent said the economy was important or very important when it came to deciding their vote.

The Republicans destroyed our economy and wrote legislation that allowed banks to become high stakes gamblers with our money. So what do the voters expect to accomplish by electing another Republican?

In a somewhat paradoxical finding, a plurality of voters who switched to the Republican — 37 percent — said that Democrats were not being “hard enough” in challenging Republican policies.

So let me get this straight… Democrats aren’t fighting hard enough against Republicans and that’s their reason for voting for a Republican?

The poll also upends the conventional understanding of health care’s role in the election. A plurality of people who switched — 48 — or didn’t vote — 43 — said that they opposed the Senate health care bill. But the poll dug deeper and asked people why they opposed it. Among those Brown voters, 23 percent thought it went “too far” — but 36 percent thought it didn’t go far enough and 41 percent said they weren’t sure why they opposed it.

36% thought health care reform didn’t go far enough, so they voted for the candidate who wants to kill reform all together? And then we have the low information crowd who make up 41% of people who switched. They don’t know why they feel the way they do; they just do. These are probably the “independent” voters who’s opinions change with the prevailing winds.

  1. WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats on Wednesday proposed allowing the federal government to borrow an additional $1.9 trillion to pay its bills, a record increase that would permit the national debt to reach $14.3 trillion.

    But it’s all the Republicans and George W Bush’s fault, remember that. 🙂

    Less than a decade ago, $1.9 trillion would have been enough to finance the operations and programs of the federal government for an entire year. Now, it’s only enough to make sure Democrats can avoid another vote before Election Day.

    • Can you believe this guy? Calling the good people of Massachusetts idiots! What a sore loser. He can’t accept the fact that the people in the most liberal state in the U.S. are fed up with Obama’s antics. Ol’ Ben had better get ready for more disappointment and I think it’s funny as hell.

  2. [Less than a decade ago, $1.9 trillion would have been enough to finance the operations and programs of the federal government for an entire year.]

    Yep, before Bush and the Republicans destroyed the economy, doubled the debt, and started two wars paid for on credit.

    If Obama is responsible, what did he spend the money on?

  3. Mr. Hoffman,

    Even though I’m against everything you stand for, I feel your pain. The poll results you sighted about what Obama voters thought while they voted for Brown, makes no sense. If I were you I’d question the motives of those who conducted it. I’d also question just how many people they sampled. It would not be the first time a poll tried to push an agenda.

  4. Mr. Hoffman,

    ” The questions and data are right there for anyone to look at. It doesn’t look like they’re pushing an agenda. ”

    Then the only conclusion is that you are right. These people on your side really are as stupid as you say. The next point would be then that they were just as stupid when they voted for Obama. Unless 12 months of living under the “One” has caused a massive loss of brain function.

    I believe the opposite. Now that Teddy is out of the picture, IQs have jumped in Massachusetts. The people have reclaimed their Senate seat.

    • [I believe the opposite. Now that Teddy is out of the picture, IQs have jumped in Massachusetts.]

      The data doesn’t support that theory. The people who voted for Obama and then voted for Brown are dimwits (otherwise known as independents).

  5. I still do not buy into the Republicans, or Democrats, destroyed the economy argument. I beleive in the Congress destroyed the economy argument. There is waaaaay to much blaim to go around over the last decade or two in my book. My problem is nobody want’s to blaim “their Congressman” or “their party”. I don’t care. The laws that come out of Congess don’t have a ‘Sponsored by the DNC’ or ‘Sponsored by the RNC’ stamp on them. They are laws that passed Congress. Everyone denies that they’re at falut at all when things go south in D.C. That’s with problem wiht Congress as a body whole. None of them have taken any form of responsibility for years. It’s always the othe parties fault. Parties are not elected, Congressmen are. I do not accept blaim to a single party. That’s like saying it’s that if my Mailman’s staling my Sports Illistrated every week then it is the Post Office’s fault and not his for being a thief.

  6. The Pissed Off Tree Rat,

    ” There is waaaaay to much blaim to go around over the last decade or two in my book. ”

    Well do not expect the blame game to disappear. The pundits for the donkeys have already laid out the next strategy. Though he doesn’t admit it Obama knows the folks are pissed at him. So what has worked in the past?

    Political jujitsu. Redirect the anger away to another target. Democrats have perfected the art of the scapegoat. Since Brown’s election Obama has gone after Wall Street harder than ever. Every body hates the fat cats at the bailed out banks.

    Since then the stock market has fallen hard. Some of this is Chinese tightening their banking. China is where all new demand for raw materials comes from.

    The other part is Wall Street getting another dose of Obama wrath. This populistic crap is what pushed the stock market to it’s March lows. Once the ” One ” shut up the market came back. Now Barry is in trouble and since it’s getting harder and harder to use Bush as villain, Wall Street is so convenient that even though it will further delay a jobs recovery Barry has to go to the well once again.

    Wall Street = Republicans.

      So Wall Street are now the victims? Do you think for a minute that a rising Dow means the economy is getting better or people are getting jobs? Wall Street is not Main Street.

      Wall Street still won’t lend to small business. ANd without credit, they’re going out of business. Go after them today and tomorrow and tomorrow Obama!

  7. Ms. Holland,

    Investors who send their money to Wall Street do not want to hear this populist crap. If you think that Wall Street has no effect on main street, you are wrong. It’s easy to hate big business. Small businessmen and Women would love to have the chance to become big. When your idiot hero bashes the big boys, the small fry also batten down the hatches because they are not stupid. No one knows when they will have a target drawn on their back sides.

    It is as I said before, your hero bashed the hell out of big business last year. From January to March he wouldn’t shut up. The man has to demonize somebody, kinda like your buddy Chavez. Mid March was the time to buy stocks because Obama had driven them down as far as they could go.

    Things have gone up spectacularly since then. A lot of credit has to go to China, which enacted a real stimulus instead of the political Slush Fund that Obama, Inc. passed. Then when the business community thought they caught a break with the Brown election dooming Obama-Care, it got hit with a one two punch in the mouth. China tightened it’s banking requirements and Obama needed to blame someone else again for his own failures. Wall Street bashing is again the order of the day. Stock market down. Same old, same old.

  8. Alan: Won’t even try to pluck something out of that to respond to. just one question – did Obama kill Jon Benet too?
