This post is for all of the lefties out there, or for anyone who has a favorite lefty friend still convinced that that an Obama re-election will ultimately make them happier than if Romney were to win on Tuesday. There are a lot of issues that are driving your decision to vote for Obama. We know that there's the right to pay for the contraception for future one percenters, hating chicken sandwiches, making our country a welcome home to illegal immigrants, telling us how much salt or sugar we're allowed to consume, or ensuring the right to cast fraudulent votes. Do you know why you care about these issues? Because you can.
That's a bit of an oversimplification, but there is a simple reason why you're able to think that these issues are important. It's because the issues that truly matter aren't things that you've had to worry about in your lifetime. With the exceptions of a few terrorist attacks, both successful and thwarted, we've never faced a serious threat of our country being invaded. We've faced economic downturns, and if we continue on our current path things are going to get a lot worse, but as a country we've not had to endure true economic hardship since the Great Depression. This is why we take these things for granted - we've never lived through these problems, and we've lost our sense of history and take for granted that peace and prosperity are the natural state of society. And that is why you're able to pretend that these trivial issues truly matter in the larger scheme of things.
So why would what I just said make any Democrat want to vote for Romney? Two words: Global Warming. Or Climate Change. Or Global Climate Disruption. Or whatever the newest term for it is. Remember when this was a critical, eminent threat and we had only days left to start responding? Yes, I remember those days too. Something weird happened over the last few years - people stopped caring. Granted, part of this is due to the fact that the sky keeps stubbornly refusing to fall, or all of the scandals that keep blowing apart what the Global Warm Mongers swore was accepted dogma. But there's something bigger than that that happened.
Our economy took a major downturn, and suddenly we're faced with problems that are actually, well, real. High unemployment, low economic growth, and mounting federal debt are very much real. And now matter how much the press tries to rationalize it away, no matter how much leftists like to delude themselves that everything wrong with our economy is George Bush's fault, and no matter how many times you close your eyes and click your heels while chanting hope and change and change and hope the reality is that our economy is not improving, and the president's policies are making things worse. Somehow CGI polar bears dropping dead from the sky over city streets seems kind of trivial when your former job was in the coal industry that our president promised to bankrupt. For some reason blindly clinging to a hockey stick graph based off of worthless data pales when you're a laid off supplier for a pipeline that can't be built because our president has to court the Big Green branch of the anti-prosperity lobby. And oddly enough, when your business that depended on servicing the now banned offshore oil rigs is dying, for some reason that half degree rise in global temperature that may or may not happen over the next century and may or may not be caused by human activity seems trivial.

First time I saw that picture. I like it!
There’s every reason Democrats should vote for Romney.
This is one of the Democrats greatest fears. The poloing is all based on who is voting, Democrat or Republica, and presumes they vote pretty much for their partyy.
I believe most Republicans will...but there is a significant chance, particularly with the isseus of Same Sex Marriage, Beghazi, Immigration, and Health Care, that there will be hemoraging of democrats over to ROmney.
Know one know how big it might be...but it could be larger, much larger than the DNC expects. I have heard many Black curch leaders urging their congregations to not “not vote,” rather, to vote for God’s word and the candidate who espousing the values consistant with it...openly saying not to vote for Obama.
If THAT gains any traction, it will be a landslide for Romney
Yhe Uninstall Barrack Obama App
In NC Obama lost 5 dem votes who voted for him last election. My in laws as well as sister and brother in law as well a his father....andi know of several others...let’s keep it up!!
