Demographics isn't the problem, Identity politics is

Welcome to the United States of Detroit.  We have officially become a country where people are elected not based on any tangible results, but simply because of who they are and who they are not.  This election the Democratic coalition voted in larger percentages for Obama than last time.  Blacks, Asians, and Latinos all voted for Obama at the same, or higher, rate than they did last time.  Folks, this is startling and scary.

I don't care what your political persuasion is, common sense dictates that with an economy this bad, you should think twice before voting for the guy in office.  Now, history tells another story.  History tells us that people are stupid, after all, they elected Roosevelt four times while he presided over the worst economic performance in this country's history.  Obama is the new Roosevelt.  He can't lead us to prosperity, or even to recovery, but we'll elect him again and again and again.

I actually thought Obama would lose simply based on the fact that he would get a lower percentage of each category this time around.  I thought that some people would look at the economic picture and say, "hey, let's give someone else a shot."  It didn't happen and that means that unless the world is literally coming to an end, and maybe even then (see Detroit), Blacks, Hispanics, and Asians will vote for the Democrat. 

It's sad to say, but people get the government they deserve.  This country, and it's poor will become poorer.  We can't save the country anymore, the country has made it's choice.  Save yourselves, and watch the stagnation happen.
