Mr Karn is obviously disappointed that his candidate did not win. He did not win because a majority of the voters supported the President. In accordance with the Constitution the President received far more than a majority of the electoral votes. This is the way the Founding Fathers decided to elect the president, giving small states and large states a voice. No matter how close the popular vote or electoral votes the majority rules. Most importantly, a majority of the voters rejected Mitt Romney who obviously wanted to return our country to the Gilded Age. His solution was to ultimately give everyone a job and then eliminate all federal support to the citizens. This "pie-in-the-sky" approach was exactly that. Consider the loss of student loans, for example. What families could afford to pay for college? What about the elimination of unemployment insurance? The list goes on and only verifies that Romney was out of touch with the ordinary family. He lacked empathy for those who appropriately rely upon the assistance of the federal government. Where would we be today without the interstate highway system almost totally funded by the federal government? I am grateful that the President was reelected and that Mitt Romney is history. No, Mr Karn, the President is not a socialist. It is only one of the myths that Republicans falsely stated.
