A victory for the facts
Republicans called Obama a liar and Romney had a different face for every audience. Truth was stretched farther than Plastic Man, but in the end victory was a matter of facts. Medicare is the best healthcare system Americans have ever had. Rape is not a gift from God, sex is genetic not orientation, and the rich must pay their fair share of taxes. Obama defined Romney early in 2012 and Mitt soon became a poster boy for outsourcing jobs and a vulture capitalist who believed rules were for losers. Republicans do not have to accept abortion, but they do have to accept a woman’s right to control her own body. 47% of Americans are the hardest workers in the world and that accounts for both 47%s. The rich are really not smarter than the average Joe. Most businesses fail and only a tiny fraction luck out to become wealthy. No one builds a business alone; without workers and customers, public services, government loans, and tax breaks, business dies. Corporate CEOs are the fat cats not labor leaders. Billionaires spend billions to buy candidates, but they don’t beat boots on the ground to get out the vote. America voted to move forward not turn back the clock. White Anglo/Saxon Protestant Males are no longer the Establishment and, therefore, no more important than women, blacks, latinos, and gays. Progress is inevitable. Learn to live with it.
