I know the gifs I posted can be confusing, but Obama wasn't our president in the late 70's, when our country began cutting benefits to the lower classes, which has been ongoing.
Welfare benefits in the USA, per recipient, adjusted for inflation
Secondly, you don't know who I voted for, and you have no clue who I campaigned for, because just like your football & political opinions, you rush to judgements without adequate evidence.
For the record, since I live in a non-swing state, I voted for Jill Stein. I campaigned for Elizabeth Warren (she's now doing a ****ing awesome job taking on the banks
) and Alan Grayson
(who did a wonderful job stopping a war on Syria) and they both won. If I lived in a swing state, I'd have held my nose and voted for Obama. Capitalism, imperialism, and environmental destruction with an embarrassed smile was much preferable to the bold-faced, unabashed capitalism & imperialism of Romney/Ryan.
