    of Romney voters would have suffered from his policies, many grievously. But between the race-based cultural identification with the white male conservative Republican that they've been indoctrinated into their whole lives, and the voodoo economics they've been indoctrinated into most of their adult lives, I can see how they truly do believe that Obama is going to destroy "their" America.

    Of course, not a one of them can actually explain how and why this will come about, in convincing detail, not knowing the slightest thing about the values and idea that the US was actually founded upon (clue: it's wasn't just "freedom"), or how economies actually work, or the vital and necessary roles that government plays in our lives that no other entity could possibly do. It's easy to believe in things you don't actually understand. (Stevie Wonder sang about that, no?)
