Here's what devastates me more than anything else: I spent 22 1/2 years as a U. S. Army officer to help protect our freedoms. One of our most treasured (or used to be) is the freedom to vote. Ten million fewer voters turned out for Obama this time than in 2008. This should have been a HUGE opportunity for him to be thrown out along with his Marxist friends. But, voter apathy, ignorance on issues, failure to understand the dire nature of Socialism on this once great nation, and the tipping point that we may reach that will kill our freedoms, was the poison that killed our opportunity Far too many Americans feel their votes don't count, so they simply don't go. I fear for our nation's future. God help us.
