Well, it's oh-so-painfully obvious that a significant number of people were successfully wooed with the promise of government help. Like drones... like zombies... they staggered their way to the voting booths and pressed the shiny, blinking, "get free stuff" button. Clearly, they have no Earthly idea what they are geting us in to... and clearly they have no knowledge of current events, i.e. Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, etc. And it's not entirely their fault. The mainstream media left all that news on their cutting room floors...
If you ever want to know what these people are all about... the young, impressionable, uninformed folks who gathered together to get Obama re-elected... just look at video clips of them being interviewed on the streets. Most of them didn't know who Mitt Romney is, don't know who the Vice President is, what a free-market system is, what individual liberty means, who our founding fathers were or what they intended for us, or the answer to just about any remedial question about our government or state of affairs.
Basically we have a significant number of young, ignorant people in our population who don't care about the future or care much about anything except when the government check is going to hit the mail box.
Hence the result.
