Romney - Red & Obama - Blue
It’s a sad day when the majority of Americans voted for someone to be President and our voices got OVER-RULED.
Maybe after these 4 years y’all will understand that Obama was not the best choice for moving this country, ‘forward.’
It’s all the damn big cities
I wish people in cities couldn’t vote. They don’t understand what it means to be American. They don’t understand our principles, and they don’t understand our Constitution.
The heartland of America will save this nation, mark my words.
You’re wishing that more than half of the population of the country would lose their voting rights and be subject to the whims of a minority. Tell me how that reflects our principles or our Constitution, I would love to know.
Dear people who don’t know how county voting maps work.
Just because the red covers most of the map doesn’t mean that “most of the country voted for Romney”.
This sort of map measures what direction each county in America went.
There could be all of ONE person in that county; if they voted Romney, then it would be a giant red spot on the map.
This is why “most of the map” appears to be red. Because in counties where they were very few people, most of those people voted Romney. Not even all of them. Just most of them, making that county red.
I repeat: If a county has 100 people in it, if 51 people voted Romney, it’s a bright red.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE VOTED FOR ROMNEY.
In fact, the majority of this country DID NOT vote for Romney.
Over 50% of voters voted Obama. Just because those spots seem to be scattered blue points doesn’t mean that it “wasn’t a lot of people”.
It means that those people are concentrated in those counties.
So basically: If 1000 people live in a large county, very spread out, and 1,000,000 people live in a very, very small county, very close together, but the small county voted Obama and the large Romney, it’s not “more people” because of the space the county takes up.
If 501 people voted for Romney, the county is red. It would take 500,001 people to make the eensy weensy crowded county blue.
That’s not “majority”.
Also y’all is dumb as fuck.
