  •  Totally agree, this election was more (0+ / 0-)

    than a mandate, it was a revolution, and by revolution I mean tipping point. Every demographic block that went for Obama is part of that pool of cheap labor that delivers stretched profit margins to 1% of the population. We are over worked, under paid with limited job opportunities and stunted career growth thanks to the "brilliant" powers that be who crashed the economy.

    And instead of showing a bit of humility, or receiving a bit of gratitude, we were told that we are lazy. We were told that our bodies are not ours to control. We were told that immigrants are not welcome in America. We were told that we do not deserve marriage equality. We were told that it was too bad if we got sick. We were told that corporations are people with special rights who can spend unlimited amounts of money on buying politicians instead of contributing to health care benefits. And THEN on top of ALL that, we were told that we cannot vote? We stood up, stood in line and finally put an end to this madness.

    The fact that they thought for one second that they had a chance of winning is an insult not only to us, but to the entire nation as a whole.
