I was examining the Lucas County 2012 Presidential election voting results--and they are amazing. Not only did Obama, who has overseen the longest streak of consecutive months of high unemployment in U.S. history, receive 64% of the total votes in the County--95 precincts had 80+% of the votes going to Obama.
It made me think of the fact that my spouse and I spent about $2,000 on contributions to Conservative candidates and worked countless hours volunteering for various campaigns. I don't feel like it was a waste of time and money--rather it was a learning experience. What I learned is that there is no reversing the opinion of someone who feels that successful people are a threat to them, and that the Democrats have perfected the art of capitalizing on that emotion.
So, why not let the liberals run the federal government and we conservatives can do what the union leaders accuse us of--making and spending lots of money. Why do we play down the fact that we are smart, ambitious, hard working, and successful? I'm done with that. We can manage circles around liberals and shouldn't be ashamed if that results in perks.
Our future will be to own, operate, and/or manage the businesses, which if we so deem, we'll hire the liberals who think that raising our taxes is the "patriotic" thing to do. They'll control the government, but we'll control any hope they have of breaking free of government oversight.
