Apathy; the greatest danger to our freedom

Updated on June 27, 2010


Here’s a few vital statistics you might just find interesting the next time you decide to give in and watch Queen Oprah or the View or say I’m tired of politics, I just want to relax. Let’s examine the 2008 election; you remember the one that gave America its first King.

The number of states won by Obama 20; McCain won 30. Of the 20 states won by Obama they comprised only 580,000 square miles while McCain’s 30 states comprised 2,427,000 square miles. I know you’re thinking about here Obama claimed he visited all 57 states, what happened to the other 7. Well those 7 states didn’t exist anymore than all those empty promises Obama would make during the campaign.

Now let’s look at the population of the respective states in question. Obama controlled 127 million people while McCain won 143 million people over to his side. What the hell happened? That’s our electoral system folks, plain and simple.

Switching gears for a moment let’s dissect those states and look at some critical data. The murder rate per 100,000 residents in the states won by Obama is a staggering 13.2% while the murder rate in the states won by McCain is just 2.1%. Getting the picture by now?

Here’s another goodie for you; the aggregate territory won by McCain was comprised mostly of land owners, taxpaying citizens. As expected the territory won by Obama encompassed mostly citizens living in low income tenements living off various forms of welfare!

Wake up America; we as a country are somewhere between complacency and apathy. It has been estimated some 40% of our population has already reached the government dependency stage. That still leaves us in the majority but time is indeed running out!

I leave you with a quote from a wise man from the Chez Republic. “The real danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president!”

      Pop, Sherry and pamela you are all right on with your comments; shelia b sorry to have to disagree with you. Sure Republicans are somewhat to blame but I contend if we don't get rid of Democrats we will be stuck with Healthcare, Crap and Tax, Card Check and any other Liberal idea that comes down the pike. Democrats will vote in lock step with Pelosi and Reid!

      I'm not going to defend any democrats, but I am going to suggest the republicans are as much to blame for the financial mess we're in. My wish is that we get rid of all of the politicians in Washington and begin anew. They've all been on the same 'progressive' track.

      Patriot, Very well put! You're right, the problem is the people that voted for him.

      Great work my friend. I guess all of us on the right should be whining and crying about the unfairness of the electoral system like Gore and his followers did in 2000. Again, liberals are like children, conservatives are the grown ups and as such we understand that things sometimes don't go our way. You live with it, and move on!

      Excellent hub Patriot. The last quote says it all doesn't it. Having said this I feel a change coming. People are starting to wake up and it can't happen fast enough.
