Some jackass Romney whiner is saying that people with <30K income voted for Obama

greater than 60%. Which may be true but it pisses me off that he is saying this. He also said he might become a Democrat next time so he can get a free ride and a free meal on election day.

What do I say to this guy. He has already announced that he is a 1%'er. He is a pompous ass. Now they are doing everything they can to try an make Obama's win seem not such a big thing.

And does anyone know what % of the population voted this year? Because this guy and another one are trying to say that Obama was voted in with less than 25% of the population which means that less than 50% must have voted.

What cry babies they are.

4. Ask him if the poor should be allowed to vote or not.


Usually behind all this bashing is a false sense of superiority, and a total rejection of the founding principle of America, that "all men are created equal."

5. Ask him where he is getting this information.

The *original* numbers, not something he heard second hand on TV or radio. Where did the numbers come from?

12. Well even with 1% ignorance is bliss. Don't play into his hand. He is trying to rile you up.

 

Just tell him Obama won, get over it. Then don't answer him anymore. That will piss him off more.

14. I would rather be in the Romney handout line.

We have had to contribute $44 M to find am underfunded pension Romney escaped with. Plus he can not show Amy taxes for 10 years, a scumbag.

15. Hubby and I both voted for Obama

We make nearly three times that much money in a year. We voted on social issues (as did nearly every other Obama voter we know - nobody gives a rat's ass about free "stuff" in our social circle). These people saying that freeloaders gave Obama a 2nd term are seriously so full of shit. They have no idea what the voters out there were actually thinking.

16. Does he REALLY want to be poor?

Does he REALLY want to make <30k a year?

Well, no one else does, either. But sometimes that's all that some people can get because the "job creators" won't pay them what they're worth in order to make more $$$ themselves. So that they can sneer at those making less.

17. We had an election. We had an accountability moment.

If he does not like the way he is running the country, if he does not love America, then he should leave.

19. I'm not even sure what they are whining about. The 1% did quite well under

Obama's first administration but they got even greedier and wanted even more so they ran a jackass that wanted to completely decimate the rest of us. Hopefully, Obama can really make them pay for all of it this time around.

20. Yeah? So?

They're voting in their own best interests. That's what you tell that whiny little jackass. On edit: Oh, and I make over six figures and I voted for President Obama.

21. I know some people who work 12-14 hours a day and have 3 jobs and still don't clear 30k a year

Are you calling them lazy? I'd say more like obscenely underpaid...

22. All he has to do is say he's an "Obama voter who is disappointed with him", and he

not only gets a cushy job appearing in a commercial, but a big fat paycheck for doing so.

Now, if he tried to cash that back-dated check, he'd probably find that it won't pay him anything because the account it was written on was closed 11/5 ... nsf ...

23. These people think only wealthy landowners should have the right to vote.

They must be so unhappy that we ever declared independence from Britain.

25. So what if it is true? People making under $30K have a right to vote for whomever they want.

And the more people who are pushed into jobs making less than $14.50/hour, the more people will vote for candidates the jackass doesn't like.

26. I make about 20k/yr. What is this "free" stuff?

I still pay a significant portion of my income taxes, along with the rest of the payroll taxes. I have no dependents, so I get very little back from either the state or federal government, but assholes like this think every low wage earner is a "lucky ducky" that pays no taxes and gets "free stuff"--whatever the fuck that is in his reality-challenged mind. I'm certainly not receiving anything like that from the government, nor do I expect to.

28. He probably didn't vote...he has "people" to do that for him........

 

It is truly disgusting for someone who has had the fortune to become wealthy (inherited, privilege, earned, who cares) to attack those that are at the lowest end of the income scale.

Sure, there are some in the lower income group that are lazy and try to milk the system for what it is worth. But I suggest that is a very, very small percentage of people in that income group.

But, we have decided as a nation, that some people deserve assistance. We have decided that families shouldn't go hungry (although the current "food stamp" program hardly provides for a bounteous or necessarily healthy diet), have adequate money for the essentials of life ("welfare"), etc.

I'm sure this 1% claims to be a Christian but hasn't learned anything from the Bible about charity and Jesus' charge to his followers.
