What are we going to be saying is the reason he got re-elected?
Why did the Republicans put Mitt Romney in as the "man to beat Obama"? He is not well liked by the middle-class, He seems to be uncomfortable with his wealth, He shows no empathy for those less fortunate than himself, and he has alienated himself from every ethnic group in the country. He has "plans" to get the country going again but won't talk about the particulars of it - if it even exists. The Republican party put him in as the nominee knowing that he has little chance of winning so they could be sure of a winner after four more years of Obama.
by then the public will be ready for another republican but the sad thing is that there may be no way to get the country back. when they fail in the first four years it will be the Libertarians that get elected. Too little too late. The national debt will be so large that we won't be able to pay the interest any longer and we will default on all that debt. The government will collapse and it will be left to us, the people, to institute a new government. I just hope it will be a real republic and not another "representative republic" like we have proved doesn't work.
Shoot! nobody even uses the term Republic anymore. They call the USA a democracy - when the constitution states plainly that it is the governments job to maintain a republic form of government to each of the many states.
Hasn't been done - the constitution is just a rag of paper without meaning to anyone in politics. It has little meaning to most of the citizens of the USA. The few it does have meaning to are branded as Extreme right wingers or crackpots.
I am looking forward to 2020 - 2024 - it will be an interesting time.
