You Get What You Vote For, Not For What You Really Want!

Many of us proclaim that we are against this or that, but in actuality we vote against what we really want and don’t even know it. Let me explain what I mean.

Most of us wanted to get rid of Obamacare, but we voted to keep it.

Most of us said our debt is too high, but we voted for more debt.

Most of us wanted to be energy independent by drilling for more oil, gas, and coal, but we voted not to drill for more oil, coal, and gas.

Most of us wanted to cut government spending, but we voted to continue spending more.

Most of us want more transparency from our elected officials, but we voted for less transparency.

Most of us say that we should support our ally Israel, but we voted to undermine our ally and their Prime Minister on numerous occasions.

Most of us say we want more bi-partisanship between the President and Congress, but we voted for less bipartisanship between the President and Congress.

Most of us want to keep special interests from influencing our politicians, but we voted for them to exert more influence.

Most of us want the government to adopt a budget and to try to abide by it, but we voted to continue to not have a budget.

As you can gather by now, by voting to re-elect President Obama you voted for the things that you are generally against and you didn‘t realize it.

Wasn’t it humorist, pundit H.L. Mencken, who said, “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public“? Well, you saw the validity of that jest in this past election.

When Obama gets sworn in in January, who is he going to blame for the terrible economy he inherited from the previous president?
