ELECTION: Don’t blame me, I voted Republican

As I write this, they have just called the state of Ohio (the state where I was born) for Obama. I can throw up now.  But, it seems that the American people, at least those who want more of this man’s Socialistic ideas to come to fruition, have spoken.

You can thank the mainstream media. They covered for this man’s ineptitude and incompetence the last four years. Also, major newspapers and the “big three” networks seemed to think that the deaths of a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, by terrorists, deserved little or no coverage.

I will abide by the elections, but I will not celebrate the re-election of Obama. He is not my president, and he made that very clear the last four years. I am not black, Latino or elderly, nor do I need a federally funded abortion or free birth control. Obama made it clear that he only wanted to work for the middle-class. If I were upper class or lower class, I would be offended about his attitude.

I have worked in the health care industry, in many capacities, for over 30 years. That will become increasingly unfulfilling as Obamacare reaches fruition.

When you lose or cannot find a job, your grown kids move back home, the value of the dollar and your home keeps falling, health care becomes like the DMV and prices continue to rise, remember your vote.

But don’t blame me, I voted Republican.
