Mitt was correct. We are at 47 percent parasites. When a being hits 51 percent parasites, I think it is game over. Even the Democrats will not like that.

As a senior, I don't agree with the 47% number. Those who have worked all their lives and collect social security now, aren't parasites. Seniors make up a huge chuck of that 47% as do retired military. Not sure what the number is. . .certainly it's too big. . .but I don't believe it's 47%. It is true that 47% are not paying taxes. I'm a self-employed senior, I still pay social security while I receive it, sort of a break even. Perhaps we need to reduce the bloated number of early government retirees pulling down huge pensions. If companies started recruiting again, that number would drop. Each worker who goes from unemployment to becoming a taxpayer has a huge impact on the government deficit.

Eighteen states have voted Democratic in six straight elections. Among the six are four of our most populous: New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California. And Obama has now won two of the three remaining mega-states, Ohio and Florida, twice.

Only Texas remains secure -- for now.

At the presidential level, the Republican Party is at death's door.

Yet one already...
