Here’s an interesting plot twister; Republicans made the assumption, incorrectly as it turns out,
that voters in states with high-unemployment would kick the bums out. That is, that they’d
vote Obama out of office and try to find someone who could solve the jobs problem in this country.
Turns out, the opposite has happened. Voters in high-unemployment states actually like the president,
and the reason is obvious; the Federal Government is paying the jobless, extending unemployment
benefits, food stamps, and even underwriting disability payments from Social Security.
Think we’re different from the Europeans? Think again. The proportion of Greek men in their 30’s that
are working is higher than the proportion of men who work in the United States. That’s what this
election was all about. People voted for free stuff, free money, and free benefits. A chicken and health care in every pot.
