    40% of the electorate are government employees/welfare recipients, so the question is how the other 60% will vote in this election. Unfortunately, if an additional 10% vote to reelect BO on the basis of guilt, we are doomed. Do you think adding medications to their drinking water might help them?

    I would like to see the evidence for this claim that 40% are on welfare or work for the government. This is one of the more ridiculous exagerrations I have seen...today. And that is still saying a lot.

    You assume the 40 percent on welfare or who work for the government will all vote for Obama.

    If by "welfare" you mean people drawing a check from the government of one kind or another, then that includes people drawing Social Security. Do you really believe everyone over 65 is going to vote for Obama?

    If you are including the military as people who "work for the government", do you really think every soldier is going to vote for Obama?

    There is no giant monolithic voting bloc made up of 40 percent of the population.

    As for guilt, there certainly is some out there, as well as envy. Romney has a car elevator and his wife has a show horse, and this is somehow deemed relevant to the issues of the day. But then, so are Obama's golf games and his wife's vacations.

    When I hear whining over golf games and car elevators, it makes me believe the water is already heavily medicated.

    Since you are the only one talking about golf games and car elevators, I assume your prescription has run out...

    Please stop understating the problem:

    'Nearly half (49.1 percent) of the American population lives in households that received some form of government benefit in the first quarter of 2011, the Wall Street Journal reported last month, citing US Census data.'

    Half of Americans in households receiving government aid

    That includes social security for which people have already paid into the system.

    it's so funny watching two morons high fiving each other.

    *shrugs*

    It's too late for the republicans to put up a canidate worth voting for. Either vote for Gary Johnson or take a risk with Obama getting another four years. *shrugs*

    Of course that goes with the assumption, which Willard agree's with BTW, that republicans need the independent votes to win.
