Because the republican party is the party for the rich.
I voted R for the fucking last time.

If these fuckers cared more about people and the earth instead of $$$$$$ then maybe regular people would vote for them.

I voted R because of prolife which is also bullshit.

Oh and BTW....Romney's campaign workers ,though they still have loose ends to wrap up from the campaign,found their campaign issued credit cards cancelled immediately after the concession speech.

Nice. You work your ass off for Romney, go to pay your cab fare after work and are denied.

Once the hamsters are not useful to the elite their feed is cancelled despite yet the elite wheel is expected to keep turning.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27445119


Did Obama ever pay all those restaurants he stiffed along the way?

Romney workers can submit any charges to the campaign to be reimbursed. It was a security measure to safeguard the cards. Doubt Romney even knew it was being done.
 Quoting: Bluebird


Restaurant and other business owners are well aware their profit is in the "free advertising".

Security measure it may have been but done without thought and consideration as to how it may affect their hard working staff.

I don't believe this for one minute. This site is run by Bev Harris whose credentials are impecable.


Forget voting machines, programmed by insiders to do whatever they do. Let's just skip counting the votes altogether and use statistics.

Creepy little way to run an election, if you ask me.

-------------------------------------------------------------​-------------------

The public must be able to see and authenticate these four essential steps for an election to be public, democratic, and valid: (1) Who can vote (voter list); (2) Who did vote (3) The original count; (4) Chain of custody.

Stop being myopic and do some critical thinking.

2008 - Popular Vote
Obama - 69,456,897
McCain - 59,934,814 (46%)
Total - 129,391,711

2012 - Popular Vote
Obama - 61,683,851
Romney - 58,489,000 (48%)
Total - 120,172,851

2012 Voter Difference = -9,219,130
Over 9million fewer voters and a 2% increase over McCain.

The real question..
What was the REAL difference between the 2012 candidates?
Everything Obama campaigned on Romney had done in Massachusetts.

Re: How Could Romney Get Less Votes Than McCain?
IMO Romney probably actually won.

There was a huge push to get O out of office and there is no way O won by that huge margin legitimately.

Areas with 100% turnout ?? and 100% for one opponent ?? does not happen.

Does not surprise me though. I said at least a year ago, it would not surprise me if Obama won re-election because he is not finished bankrupting America.

Re: How Could Romney Get Less Votes Than McCain?
OP,if you only learn one thing from this thread, please learn the difference between "less" and "fewer".


In prescriptive grammar fewer is the prescribed comparative to be used in relation to grammatically plural, discretely quantifiable nouns, i.e., count nouns. The comparative less, it is argued, should be used when speaking of a grammatically singular noun (including mass nouns).

The prescriptivist distinction can be seen in this example: "There is less flour in this canister", but "There are fewer cups (grains, pounds, bags, etc.) of flour in this canister", as flour is a mass noun unless it is measured in a unit (in this case cups). However, in the case of singular but discretely quantifiable nouns as in "one less cup of flour in this canister", the adjective fewer should be used, the prescriptivists argue.

yep, the only thing republicans have going for me are Gun Rights. They cave on immigration every time, and I don't really care passionately about outlawing abortion, and I detest going to fight wars for Israel along with the drug war.

The democrats are crap too, but they are slightly better smelling crap.

The republicans care about the rich, they don't really care about personal freedom, they are stuck in the past with their moral bullshit. They need a dose of libertarian fresh air and need to get off their moral high horse and let people live their lives. Also stop targeting tax breaks towards the very rich and gloating about it in public. People who make 10 million a year don't need lower taxes.

If I was in charge all loopholes, child credits, and other BS would be eliminated, but the first $10000 of everyone's income would be tax free on my 'graduated flat tax' scale. That way hard working people who earn a low wage still get rewarded, while welfare moms who pump out 5 kids do not, they already get enough from the courts.

Romney got less votes than McCain because Romney was not believable.

McCain was a war hero. He got captured, tortured, the whole nine yards. You knew he was screwed up in the head because of all that, but you still believed that he truly had the best interests of the nation at heart.

Romney is a rich man who is not believable as someone who actually has the best interests of the nation at heart. He is not really even believable as a human being. We knew that McCain was human, he suffered, he knew what suffering was, and in that we felt some kinship. Romney, not so much.

John McCain may well be the least intelligent person to have ever run for the White House. And, when he brags about reaching across the aisle, what he leaves out is that when he's done so, it's to give them all a handjob while mooning his own party.

He's the king of the RINOs.

But if there had been some way for Romney to have kept the Ron Paul votes, that would have made the difference. Thank God the Republicans chose the Tea Partiers over the Ron Paul people, or Romney would now be the president-elect.
