You forgot the most important reason we lost. We lost because today's America isn't looking for a candidate who encourages actually changing the entitlement systems. Mitt was right. 47% of the population on welfare, food stamps, social security, medicaid, medicare and all the other entitlements -- those guys and gals aren't looking to have any changes made to their 'entitlements'. Voting for him might have helped make changes. But we would have needed the Senate also. Personally, I am on social security and am paying for medicare and was hoping that we would be able to make serious changes in the entire system because I can see far enough down the road to see a massive problem. But, far too many people are short-sighted.
Just to make things even better, a judge in Wisconsin threw out most of the Wisconsin law regarding unions. The unions are declaring victory even though Gov. Walker said they will appeal the decision.
Today is Empty Chair Monday. Put an empty chair in your front yard. Hang a sign on it that says: '“We own this country . . . Politicians are employees of ours . . . And when somebody does not do the job, we’ve got to let them go.” –Clint Eastwood '
