This is just a symptom of who we have become as a country.
We're not a center-right nation anymore, but rather a balkanized collection of special interests, each with their hands out. Conservatism doesn't resonate with people who think prosperity starts with the next government handout, and now this underclass has reached levels where they can simply choose all the national leaders and enslave the rest of us.
We thought we were being compassionate, but instead we handed our country to this angry mob, with Obama and his minions in charge of our "fundamental transformation".
Get over it - the America we knew and loved is a thing of the past, and in the end it's our own fault for not standing up for our principles these past few decades.
