    In '08 I voted for McCain. In '12 I didn't vote. I almost voted Romney, but I just couldn't force myself to do so.

    I've voted for the Republican candidate in every Presidential election except my first (voted Perot) and the last (didn't vote).

    Four million white voters didn't vote in 2012 who voted in 2008.

    It was Perot voters who put Clinton in the White House back in 92. I remember those Perot voters back then, they were young first time voters who were highly motivated. What a let down, you were able to hear that sucking sound that Perot was always referring to in reference to NAFTA as soon as Clinton moved in to the White House. You still can hear that sucking sound.

    Remember Obama's lie in 2008 that he was going to revisit NAFTA if he became POTUS ? A week later he was caught telling the PM of Canada that he was lying to the American voters to pick up a few million votes.

    The main reason I voted for Perot was that "large sucking sound to the South" argument he made. He was absolutely right. I think many who were well versed in economics at the time (I wasn't there yet, I was just starting my post-HS education) saw that he was obviously correct.

    Of course, Clinton ended up being a damn good president anyway, even if I disagreed with NAFTA at the time. After all, I'm a huge Reagan fan, and I can't exactly bitch about protectionism since Reagan was probably the godfather of protectionism.

    If you weren't a mature and knowledgeable adult by the late 60's or the early 70's it may sound like sci-fi to you.

    In 1960 many of European newspapers and governments called JFK a "reactionary." Nixon was viewed being politically left of JFK. JFK's political ideology was more aligned with the liberal Democrats who became part of the neoconservative movement during the 1970's. It was the radical left known as the "New Left" who infiltrated the Democrat Party in the early 70's and hid behind the label of calling themselves "liberals." while they took the Democrat Party way over to the left.

    Kennedy was probably the last respectable Democrat this country had. LBJ wasn't too bad (at least by today's standards), but you're right that the Democratic party was mostly hijacked by baked losers around the early 70s.

    I think the tipping point was Carter's election success in '76. It gave a sense of legitimacy for the crackpots for decades to come.

    I was politically involved in 1976, and this country has moved FAR to the right since that time, both Democrats and Republicans.

    I could list pages of evidence, but simply put, people who used to be considered right are now considered leftists by the party of the right, and our center right President is called a Communist when his actions are less left that Ronald Reagan.

    It is truly amazing when people suggest America has moved left in any way, shape, or form.

    It's obvious that you have moved further to the left over the years.

    If the GOP has moved further to the right, why isn't the GOP full of reactionaries ? Reactionaries are extreme right wing.

    What I find interesting, I've only been participating on the DP for less than six months and I only seen a few who have used the term "reactionary" and properly used the term. Basically there aren't that many reactionaries around in America today.

    As for Obama, he in his own words have said he was an internationalst and inside every internationalist there's a socialist who wants to get out. Deep down, Obama is an internationalist socialist.

    Obama an "internationalist socialist?" Really? Wow, you guys are scary ... I picture you in a poorly lit basement somewhere in the middle of nowhere, typing away, talking to yourself ... am I close?

    Re: Your voting record: 2008 and 2012

    2010 was the first election I ever voted in and was also our polling location election judge for the Demo primary (not a presidential year of course).
    In 2012 I voted for Romney. While I am totally dissatisfied with Obama, I am glad he won because of the far religious rightwing and Catholic takeover of the Republican Party in many Republican states now pursuing extreme anti-legal abortion legislation, plus I'd like to see more push for gay civil rights equality from the Democrats - thus it is Democrats are the less of two great evils to pick from.
