The ONLY ethnic group where Romney lead was white men. "Republicans have won the white vote in every presidential election since 1964, and that continued Tuesday with Romney beating Obama by 20 points, 59 percent to 39 percent, according to exit polls. Obama won 80 percent of the minority vote, which, besides Latinos, included African Americans, 13 percent of turnout, the same as 2008, and Asian-Americans, who were 3 percent of the vote, up a point from the last election. President Barack Obama on Tuesday won a whopping 71% of the Latino vote, up from 67% in 2008. By contrast, John Kerry only managed to get about 53% of the Latino vote in 2004 when he lost in his bid to unseat President George W. Bush, according to publicly available exit polls. In Colorado, he captured three-quarters of Hispanic voters, up from 61 percent in 2008. He also improved his Hispanic performance in Florida, a result that included dominance of the heavily Puerto Rican swing precincts around Orlando and the election of a Cuban American Democrat to Congress, symbolizing the end of the GOPís decades-long lock on that community. In 2012, the share of the Latino vote rose to a record high 10%, a number thatís doubled in the past 16 years. President Obama won about 8.4 million Latino votes, using a rough calculation based on exit-poll data. Romney captured no more than 3.44 million votes. In Iowa and New Hampshire, states without big minority populations, Obama won by gaining the support of nearly six in 10 women. Obama won 71% of the Asian-American vote. From the exit polls, President Obamaís support from men slipped a few points from 49% four years ago, but women supported the president over Romney by 55% to 44%."

<quoted text>Funny. The only "hate" I've seen diplayed on here,on TV or even on the streets has been from Obama's taxpayer funded voters. Truth? Obama scared the SH!T outta those people with the lies that Romney/GOP was going to end all welfare. THATS the cold hard truth. OBAMA was the fearmonger that rallied his government dependent supporters to vote for him. What are they going to do when they realize America is too BROKE for Obama to give them free sh1t much longer.
Exactly. The way Obama won is the people on welfare voted for him, and the stats are that about 80 percent of blacks have been living on welfare for the last 4 generations and now over 50 percent of Hispanic girls are also having kids out of wedlock in order to go onto welfare. Notice how MSNBC even admits all of the time that most blacks and most Mexicans are on welfare. They call them the poor and the disadvantaged, meaning, they all live on welfare programs, not that they are really poor people. So of course they voted for Obama. So did the gays, and most all gay men have HIV or AIDS and so did the government workers and government retirees who have the states and cities bankrupt with the pension promises. And, all of those people have no clue that Obama borrows $1 trillion every year to hand out welfare and the government pensions. A few of the state retirees know it. They say their pensions may be cut and they say that Obama has to keep running up $1 trillion ever year to prop up the bankrupt states and they say the governor here needs to raise taxes, so they know that their big pensions come from tax money, it's not money they paid into their pensions themselves. Yes, and they have no clue this is all going to end in default of the debt and big huge cuts to all of this stuff. I think most young people who voted for Obama do not follow politics at all. They just think about gay rights or being on the "right" side of made up racism, bla, bla, bla. They have NO clue about the debt or anything that is really going on. And all Obama is doing is taking money from the few who are left who are not on the government to give out their money to those who are on the government. This is a good place to get the hell out of. There's nothing left of it and I do not consider this stuff democracy. It's uninformed, very low IQ people voting for fairytales. Who wants to be a part of this stuff any longer? I don't.

As true as that is, it's best to diversify. In addition to ammo, I invest in actual gold, silver, and copper that is in hand, not on paper. I also invest in bartering items such as alcohol, food, water, seeds, and honey (which never spoils).
got a box in the mail today from a long time Buddy. In it were a few things he had plenty of and I couldn't beg,borrow or steal where I live. 7-30rd AR mags new in plastic,around 100-10 round stripper clips for 5.56mm,a couple chargers for the clips,cardboard sleeves for the clips/ammo,and 4 cloth bandoleers. Merry Christmas to me.....

Around here the thinking now is Obama won. No big deal. Give him what he wants. The sooner he wrecks the country's economy the sooner the entitlements can't be funded and NO ONE will get welfare. Obama will become as popular as a turd in a punch bowl and he will have his legacy of destruction.

Isn't it the Democrats that frown upon being a hater? Hmmm, I guess like all the other things from Democrats, it only applies to the other guy.

So why does it bother you so much? If it is all bull and is a scare tactic, it still is leading to lots of gun sales. Those gun sales are helping the economy. So why are you whining about it?

Who are you to say he's nuts? Do you know what he plans to do with that ammo? Not that its any of your business.
He may use some of that ammo to barter with. That is his right.
