The GOP, to their own detriment, turned off voters in the 2012 election more than any other time in it's history. Not only counting those who did not vote, count those who quit voting - period!
Blaming 'Green Parties" is not the answer, as they didn't take enough votes to make any difference.
The old media is complicit in the take over of our society, turning would be workers into slaves of their entitlements. The reporters are working hard to keep their million dollar salaries, thus follow the federal government's talking points.
Based not on actual votes, but on projections from a single private entity, the National Election Pool (NEP), we were all told what the election results were going to be. Voting is now a science and counting the actual votes defunct. But is that what your vote really is? A science project, to be viewed only by experts inside a nesting set of black boxes, completely out of public view? They called the states, before results were in, based on science and SELECTED outcomes. It's all smoke and mirrors folks, so what do we do about it?
"What's the use of voting?" "There is nothing we can do to stop [it]". "No difference in either candidate." People who support the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, personal responsibility have been fighting hard, especially over the last four years. Things weren't going well in 2008, however, throwing millions more into welfare instead of creating jobs, secured Obama's second four years.
He now views the win as a 'mandate', but he's still a narcissist and has his own path to follow - Wealth Redistribution. He has a GREAT START! Will he have another four years, eight years? The entitled vote for their entitlement - period, and this year it was Obama and the Democrats.
We MUST raise the leaders we want to lead this country back to it's core principles, core values, moral and personal responsibility. Education is key - SELF education, reading and learning lessons from the classics. Home schooling is the BEST way to overcome the socialists public schools and forget college unless it required for a particular profession or license.

America is over $16 trillion in debt. The â€œofficialâ€ unemployment rate still hovers around 8%.
Our federal government claims the right to spy on American citizens, indefinitely detain them, and even assassinate them without trial.
Domestic drones fly over the country for civilian surveillance.
Twelve million fewer Americans voted in 2012 than in 2008, yet political pundits scratch their heads.
It's not hard to see why, though.
To go along with endorsing a never-ending policy of bailouts, stimulus packages, and foreign military adventurism, the establishment of neither major party questions the assaults on Americans liberties I've named above.
As my campaign showed, the American people are fed up. Many realized heading into Tuesday that regardless of who won the presidential election, the status quo would be the real victor.
GOP leadership is now questioning why they didn't perform better.
They're looking at demographic changes in the United States and implying minorities can only be brought into the party by loudly advocating for abandoning what little remains of their limited government platform and endorsing more statist policies.
My presidential campaign proved that standing for freedom brings people together.
Liberty is popular regardless of race, religion, or creed.
As long as the GOP establishment continues to not only reject the liberty message, but actively drive away the young, diverse coalition that supports those principles, it will see results similar to Tuesday's outcome.
A renewed respect for liberty is the only way forward for the Republican Party and for our country.
I urge all my Republican colleagues to join the liberty movement in fighting for a brighter future.
