PRELUDE -THE ELECTION
Now that the election is a few weeks behind us and emotions have calmed, it is time to examine what really happened.
We have been assaulted by the media, all the talking heads and all the political parties trying to analyze what the Republicans Party, the Tea Party and the Right in general did wrong. What caused them to lose the election? Why is much of the nation angry as hell over the election results? Why are Petitions to secede jamming the White House website?
The answer to all these questions is really quite simple. All you have to do is look closer at the Election Map to discover the answer – Nothing! Absolutely Nothing!
For the sake of brevity, let us examine the results from just 5 large, pivotal states:
Ohio – 18 Electoral Votes
Ohio has 88 counties and only 17 of them voted for Obama but ONE of them gave Obama a large enough margin to overcome Romney’s lead in the rest of the state. Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) gave Obama an unbelievable 38 point and 235,000 vote margin to give the state to Obama by 103,000 votes. No other county in the state came close to that kind of margin.
Pennsylvania – 20 Electoral Votes
Pennsylvania has 66 counties and 51 voted for Romney but ONE returned an incredible, unbelievable 85+% for Obama and swung the total state vote to his column. Philadelphia county and city – brotherly love or…….?
Florida – 29 Electoral Votes
With 66 counties, Florida had 53 (80%) vote for Mitt Romney. ONE, however, went for Obama in such incredible numbers that it moved the whole state into the Democratic column. Miami-Dade County – that bastion of governmental ethics – voted 62%-38% for Obama.

Illinois – 20 Electoral Votes
Illinois has over 100 counties and ONE changed the election. That’s right. Cook County (Chicago) had more of a margin then the rest of the state of Illinois combined. The acknowledged most politically corrupt and Democratic organized county in the nation decided the election. Obama’s home town - with a mayor who used to be his chief of staff and a Democratic machine as famous for its fixed elections as it organization - gave Obama enough votes to overcome Romney’s advantage in the rest of Michigan.
Nevada – 6 Electoral Votes
Out of 17 counties only two counties in Nevada voted for Obama but ONE of those (Clark – the home of virtuous Las Vegas) went to the Democrat by a margin large enough o swing the whole state to Obama.
So, what do we take from this little study besides that FIVE counties (in five states with a total of 328 counties) moved 93 electoral votes and the Presidency from Romney to Obama?
The next steps we must take are to determine what (if anything) can be done to recreate a nation like the one we had for the first 200+ years of our existence. A nation that rewards hard work, supports private enterprise, has fiscal policies that ensure the existence and freedom of our nation, protects the rights of its Citizens as guaranteed in the Constitution and enforces all laws equally regardless of race, gender or religion. A nation that welcomes immigrants who want to join the country as new Citizens and who believe in the old American values. A nation where freedom of religion is guaranteed but freedom from exposure to the principals of our founding fathers is not.
