Everything makes more sense when you realize that half the people are below average.

The numbers were down because the old, white electorate is dying off.
While Obama certainly won the black vote, so did every white Democrat candidate. I think you have to look beyond racism for your answer.
There were fewer white voters than in 2008 because they are dying off.

Capital Gains Taxes

Not so. You're only taxed on the gain, not on your original investment. Double taxation comes in when a company pays taxes on it's income and then the investor is taxed again either on dividends subsequently paid out or on capital gains when the investment is sold. Often on both.

Poverty hasn't been eliminated because we don't count the value of all of all of the poverty programs as income to the people receiving the largesse.
If border security had been tighter we would have had a net outflow of over one million and a lot less drain on our social services, plus more job for Americans to fill.

Why Tax Capital Gains?

If there were no capital gains tax then corporations would minimize dividend payments so that stockholders would pay less in taxes (Buffet does this already). And why should a stock flipper be able to avoid taxation on gains? Or are you proposing a new set of rules to decide who is and who isn't a "trader"?
What if I stop reading all these questions?
