- 47% of Americans are ignored by Romney/the conservative Republicans' - “- don't care -” - however Obama stated he doesn't care about the people that won't vote for him – and this is conveniently ignored. We will probably hear about the evil “rich” infinitely, - and at the same time the point Romney succinctly expressed during the Presidential debate was that the evil “rich” who are conveniently getting scapegoated are also many small-businesses that file individual tax returns – the dems retort this is only around 3% of the business, and again, as usual, ignore this 3% is 50”% of the businesses that employ the working class.
The Koch bros.; Cato institute; ALEC; Americans for prosperity, all seem to support true American values based on a Republic/a country run by the people, rather than a country run by the government – immensely more representative of traditional American values than Progress Ohio; SEIU; ACORN; AARP; Democratic Socialists of America; Reverend Wright; Sherrod Brown; Rham Emmanuel; Eric Holder; and the numerous far left reps. in this administration.
Many choose to support private industry, rather than government “winners”/EPA; AARP; SEIU;Fannie
