Even though the left has tried to eliminate the concept of “outcomes” as important, outcomes are still important. As proven by the sediment of the socialism utilized by OWEbama in the last four years, the left can only make so much reality disappear but that has in no way stopped them from trying..
According to the left, the “outcome” of dodge ball is “bad”, “outcome based education” (grades) are “bad”.. “Outcomes” are therefore “unfair” within the liberal lexicon.. The liberals have tried to numb you to the effects of “outcomes”.. As always with the left, only CERTAIN outcomes are “bad”. No matter how the left tries to spin it, the outcome of the election of 2008 was unquestionably bad.. Can’t spin it, then just ignore it..
The FACTS, the “Inconvenient Truth” that surrounds the facts collected through the current collectivism CANNOT be “debated”. These “facts”, the “results” of all of the numbing numbers that have been carefully assembled by the OWEbama administration’s handiwork of the last four years have been listed here and elsewhere with seemingly little effect.. Because of this “handiwork”, the left wants a completely DIFFERENT set of what they call “facts” to be our nation’s focus.. Barring that, they want you to be completely unconcerned about the “process” and there are several ways they will get to that “outcome”..
“The deluge”.. The deluge of commercials, advertisements and mailers.. The “24 hour news cycle”, sufficiently marinated within the collectivist cauldron of “impartiality”, regurgitates the latest propaganda.. Had enough, here comes more.. People instinctively “tune out” at this point as they reach an individual level of “overload”, whatever that level may be. Mission accomplished.
Those who have “tuned out” have effectively connected with their inner apathy. Apathy causes the “outcome” to be skewed as the apathetic stay home. Those who stay at home have added an uncontested vote to the opponents totals..
As we look at “outcomes” and votes we have to wonder in amazement how the apathetic become apathetic because it certainly isn’t due to an aversion to the concept of voting..
Shall we look at the “voting” for “American Idol” or maybe “Dancing with the Stars”? More “votes” will be cast for some obscure crooner or some cherubic hoofer this year than will be cast in the upcoming Presidential election. The “outcome” of either of those silly television shows has NO EFFECT at all upon your life.. None..
The “show” that is “politics” is “boring”. No singing, no dancing.. (I disagree, politicians “sing and dance” wildly, they just don’t do it in the same manner as the “stars” of these silly television shows..) (I have also previously postulated that politics is show business for ugly people..)
The political process is MEANT to bore you, if it were “exciting”, they couldn’t “get over” on you, as you would be riveted by what was taking place. However, literally EVERYTHING politicians do or do not do DIRECTLY EFFECTS your daily life. Your FREEDOM. Your FINANCES. Yet you are bored.. The OUTCOME of EVERY election, local, state and national, DIRECTLY EFFECTS literally EVERYTHING about you, so I have to ask WHY AREN’T you “riveted”?
For example, in order to get to the proper outcome in 2012, the left wants you to forget what has happened between January of 2009 and today.. There should be NO painful reminders, we should all look “forward”.. If you absolutely HAVE TO “reminisce”, it was ALL “inherited” from George Bush, NOT from BOTH Houses of Congress which have been firmly Democratic since 2006..
In reality, the “idea” of making the “historic accomplishments” of the OWEbama administration DISAPPEAR should be a task that even David Copperfield would fail at.. Therefore, Jim Messina, OWEbama Shampaign manager, is a better magician than David Copperfield.. Messina will succeed with MILLIONS of otherwise cognizant people who will be sufficiently anaesthetized come November proving that “reality” can easily be removed from the VERY REAL world of politics..
As stated within the first paragraph of this article, there is no questioning the fact that the outcome of the 2008 election was bad. In order to “learn from our mistakes” we must look back, exactly where the left DOESN’T want us to look for a variety of reasons, and take note.. Only fools do not learn from their mistakes and it has gotten so bad that there are STILL millions of people who still believe that they didn’t make a mistake in 2008..
In 2008, there were 202,323,000 Americans who were of the eligible age to vote. The election of 2008 managed to bring 63% of eligible age voters to the polls. Therefore, 74,839,310 DID NOT either register or they did not show up to cast a vote.. Nearly 75,000,000 people who could have voted DID NOT vote.
The Democrats spent $10.94 per vote in 2008. They raised $778,647,962 and they tallied 69,498,215 votes. (We CANNOT give an accurate statistic relative to the cost ratio of dead votes, cartoon character votes or other mysterious and historic Democratic voting blocs.. As well, it is IMPOSSIBLE to properly measure the effect of the FREE advertising provided to the liberal Democrats by the “impartial” media..) The Republicans spent $5.78 per vote in 2008. They raised $346,666,422 and they garnered 59,948,240 votes..
There were 131,393,990 votes cast in 2008. 129,391,708 votes were cast for either OWEbama or McCain. There was a “difference” of 2,002,282 votes cast for NO REASON. On a note that HAD BETTER NOT factor in relative to the election of 2012, Ron Paul received 41,905 useless votes in 2008..
So 74,859,510 of those of eligible age in America didn’t vote and 2,002,282 votes were cast for a cast of characters.. Therefore, 76,861,791 directly effected the “outcome” of the election of 2008 which has directly effected the lives of EVERYONE, voter or otherwise..
ALREADY we have heard of “voter irregularities” in Florida.. The Democrats are already chumming for “victims”. Please note that there were NO reported claims of “voter irregularities” in 2008 because the “correct” candidate won.. The SAME voting process that was alleged to be so problematic in both 2000 and 2004 (see, the incorrect candidate won..) wasn’t a problem at all in 2008..
Mind you in 2008, OWEbama “won” North Carolina by 0.32% of the vote tabulated. Indiana was “won” by OWEbama by 1.04%. Most tellingly, Florida went to OWEbama by 2.82% and Ohio went to OWEbama by 4.59%.. If Romney takes these states by these miniscule margins, the “pregnant chad”, “confusing” voter machines, the whole “voter irregularity” nonsense will again be replayed. In 2008, there was NONE of this.. No recounts.. No scandals..
The fact is that the “outcome” of THIS election will also have a direct bearing upon EVERY American, whether they are eligible to vote or not. OWEbama inspired debt and deficits will plague the voters of tomorrow. The possibility of two to three Supreme Court Justices will effect the voters of tomorrow and on and on and on..
There can be no argument that 2008 was a mistake. We have learned from that mistake. If we HAVEN’T learned, then the “outcome” of 2012 will remain the same as 2008 and we can also say based upon four years of “historic accomplishment” by OWEbama, the “outcome” for 2016 will only be worse..
