Since the reelection of President Barack Obama gold prices have begun to rise and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has fallen below 13,000. This reflects the prospects for the country moving forward, at least in the minds of business leaders. So how did President Obama win?
I turned over some research to my friends at GulagBound.com on the Virginia military vote. Look for this article in the days to come. However, I want to mention a more apparent trend in the election.
Conservative men did not show up to vote, at least in California.
reports that Ron Paul supporters refused to vote for Mitt Romney after the Republican Convention.
All these factors led to Ron Paul supporters taking the solemn "I'll never vote for Romney" oath. There was no blood involved, it was more of an internet pinky pledge.But after being maligned as potheads for pointing out that the War on Drugs is leading to a police state that will consume us all, all of liberty voters said, ya know what? Knock yourselves out-without us! CHEATERS NEVER WIN!Additionally, Gov. Gary Johnson received 1.1 million votes, representing the Highest Vote Total Ever for Libertarian for President.
Both libertarians and Ron Paul supporters tend to be male. This may account for some of the lower turn out from conservative men.
