In 2008, I begged people here on TH to vote for McCain, who was not my first, second or third choice. After being called everything except a child of God, they all said they were voting their 'principles' or they were 'going to teach the GOP a lesson'. I simply thought four years of Obama would be disastrous. Now we know what four years of Obama can mean, except he has no constraints now. It appears that he got the votes of every non-taxpaying adult freeloader in this country. To add to it, the last time voter participation was this low was in 1992.
