Educated People Voted For Obama

Some right wingers are claiming the reason Obama won is because his supporters wants free stuff and hand-outs.  Fact is, most of the Blue states which voted for Obama / Democrat has the most educated people and the Red states which voted for Romney / Republican has the LEAST educated, as shown in this video and the chart below.

Recent studies show that Conservatives and Liberals think differently and are physiologically different.

According to studies, liberals have more tolerance to uncertainty (bigger anterior cingulate cortex), and conservatives have more sensitivity to fear (bigger right amygdala).

You hear Right Wingers complain about the liberal media. Fact is that most of the people in the media are college educated and it’s their job to find who’s telling the truth and who lying.   They relentlessly went after Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky affair in the 1990’s so claims that they only go after Republicans are false.  I was on the Republicans side in the 1990’s and felt Bill Clinton deserved to be impeached for lying to the American people.

Romney was a HORRIBLE candidate who was constantly lying, flip-flopping on issues, and who did not represent average Americans. It’s hard to understand why anyone voted for him.

The idea that the only people who voted for Obama are “Food Stampers” who wants freebies is absurd.

Romney is one of the biggest LAIRS and flip-floppers ever to run for President –  http://www.politifact.com/personalities/mitt-romney/statements/byruling/false/  During the primaries, fellow Republicans called Romney “Etch a Sketch” due to his constant flip flopping on issues.

This left a lasting impression that he was not to be trusted and made it difficult to know what he realty stood for and what he would do if he were elected.

Romney was not a job creator, he was a Corporate Raider. People were disgusted by how Romney engaged in buying companies, firing workers and shipping jobs overseas to make Millions.

People were turned off by Romney’s “I’m not concerned about the poor”, “Corporations are people” and his comment, “47 percent who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it”.

Most people knew that since Romney was a multimillionaire, he did not understand the difficulties regular people face trying to make ends meet and therefore he would not care about them or represent them.  It was obvious that he would represent the RICH and he would have given the rich tax breaks and increased taxes on the middle class and the poor.

People were disgusted by Republicans voter suppression tactics including reducing days to vote in states like Ohio and Florida to help Romney win.   They were disgusted by Republicans radical agendas, restrictions on women’s rights & abortion, and policies which favors the rich.  They were disgusted by Republicans lies and false claim attack ads against Obama.

Obama delivered on most of the promises he made. He is a kind, humble, decent person who cares about the poor and middle class.  Like Obama, I think taxes should be increased on the 2% Millionaires / Billionaires to help balance the budget, instead of increasing taxes on the middle class and the poor.
