    BE HONEST, SENIORS! How many of you were SECRET Obama voters

    Be Honest. I have talked to a lot of Seniors since the election and many of them voted for Obama secretly. Although most wanted tp vote more conservatively, they just kept their mouth shut and as Romney burned his bridges with seniors, they finally voted for Obama. Most did not trust the Repubs to leave their income alone was the most voiced reason that I heard. So, who did you, my fellow Seniors, end up voting for?

    I voted against Obama and proud of it - those seniors you mention must not have children or grandchildren whose future they care about or Obama, being the politophile that he is, not only got the naive uninformed voter with promises of freebees, he also snagged the senile vote with fear mongering. Not a surprise.

      tsadjatko- Wow! Sorry  ]if my question offended you, but I was just trying to get a small dialogue going about this strange election process that we just went through.
      Perhaps I should put this online as a forum?

      Not offended just telling it like it is. UnderObamaevery citizen now owes $60,000 in America's debt and it wll only get worse - seniors who voted for Obama voted to leave their heirs worse off than the previous generation for the first timeinhistory.

    I voted for President Obama and yes, I have children and grandchildren! Health care was my most motivating factor. Everyone, and I mean everyone should be able to acquire healthcare and not "ever" worry about meeting the plans lifetime limits. The last thing I would want is for one of my kids or grandkids to need medical care and find out the insuror dropped them for pre-existing conditions or they exceeded the lifetime benefits. The fear of Republicans doing away with Obamacare was my deciding factor!

      The majority of the nation disagrees according to the polls and all the indications so far are that it will cost three times orignal estimates, won't cover hardly any more than already covered, will increase insurance rates, taxes, and the deficit.

      This is the same reason I voted for Obama.  Many people fear the price will be more than they can pay, but I feel the price will be less because of it.  At least people will not be turned down left with nothing but doctor bills.

    Yes, I voted for him and wasn't at all secret about it. The 'conservative' party should be renamed to the 'capitalist control' party. That's all they're driving for, power and money, either through religion or business. To hell with the people that helped them to get there, once they've got theirs the rest of us can live in squalor or die.

    So, yes, I voted for Obama and I didn't care who knew it.

    I supported Obama in 2008, but that was based only upon his rhetoric. Yep, I was lazy.

    In 2012, I knew better. Living in the Philippines, I was saved the burden of Corporate Party media propaganda. I knew, for instance, that Obama had betrayed his Oath of Office more than a thousand times -- each one treason, to a greater or lesser degree. He swore to defend the Constitution, but ended up shredding it at nearly every turn.

    Now, it's a felony to protest what the government is doing. Yes, in America. Now, you can be detained indefinitely without charges, an attorney, a trial or a phone call. Now, the president can murder you by executive order. Bye bye, habeas corpus and posse comitatus. The law is now what Obama says it is, or what his Corporate Party handlers tell him it is.

    After seeing how the GOP fraudulently conducted their presidential primaries, it became clear that voting meant little any more in America. Votes were ignored, changed, and ballots were stuffed. Chairpersons were arrested on at least 2 occasions on false charges, all to disrupt the competition. Delegates were removed by whim, and one committee member was kidnapped by his bus driver for 2 hours while a critical vote was held. Kind of takes your breath away.

    And when the presidential conventions of both halves of the Corporate Party were held, voting was essential declared dead. Roberts Rules of Order were used only as a sham without meaning. A pretense.

    DNC Scripted:

    Me? I supported a Third Party candidate, someone who has proved their love of the Constitution.

    But with so many YouTube videos showing evidence of electronic voting machine tampering going back to 2000 election, I'm not going to vote.

    I'm boycotting corporations and the government. Self-reliance is the only patriotic thing to do.

    They all were, unless, of course, the Hitlerian way of voting was instituted without my knowledge; which would not surprise me, given the state of things...
