Demographics-King of the Policy Hill?

It is likely that the 2012 Presidential election will turn on voter turnout. Specifically will those under 35 vote? If they don’t turn out to vote Obama loses. What is very odd is that Republican turnout in the Primaries so far has been below that of prior years.

So it is not just census data that changes districts because who votes also ends up being important. All must vote IMO who want to live in a democracy or republic.

Demographics are the most recent statistical characteristics of a population. These types of data are used widely in sociology (and especially in the subfield of demography), public policy, and marketing. Commonly examined demographics include gender, race, age, disabilities, mobility, home ownership, employment status, and even location. Demographic trends describe the historical changes in demographics in a population over time (for example, the average age of a population may increase or decrease over time). Both distributions and trends of values within a demographic variable are of interest. Demographics are about the population of a region and the culture of the people there.

    Don’t be too sure the under 35′;s will Vote for Obama this time – outrage on campuses, increased tuitions, soaring gas prices, food expenses skyrocketing and their future budget deficits as well as their personal Rights pointing to a perilous time ahead….by the time election time comes around….guess what, we will be in such despair that Barry Obama has not even a chance even with “Mitt the Unfit” if unfortunately he is chosen to take the reigns..

    It is time for term limits from local, to state to “Sleep Hollow” as our Congressional leadership on both sides of the aisle cannot be found….

    Barry Obama has proven my point when he was selected over Hillary Clinton by the good ‘ol fellas, he is nothing but a narrow minded, prejudice and devisive token as depicted by his all star “Goldman Sachs” WH and his intentional attack at the core values of this Judeo-Christian nation and its soul – the US Constitution, sacred to our beloved Republic and when handed over done with stern caution from those – within – Barry Obama et al.

    We are at peril. WE know it when we go to the gas pump and grocery store. We know it qwhen we have no pennies left as the only “change” we have seen stripped from us by this administration.

    This is Not about Republicans and Democrats…this is about a nation who has sacrificed many to enable us to preserve Liberty and to see ‘ol Glory fly high…

    God Bless America! It is not the Taliban and Hamas many of truly worry abouit…it is about Rev Wright and his Chicago bud and the gang who have hoodwinked many Americans, however as good ‘ol Abe pointed out, ya’ cannot fool all the People..all of the time…

    The budget deficit is soaring…Our Roghts stripped away in a methodical maner and God help America, you who are “Proud to be an American” as the illegal is afforded tuition and electric, hos[ital care and even license and registration, while the government does little to truly to anything other than to dupe many into always blaming the other…never taking responsibility for failures and the ultimate failure is on our steps…

    I truly believe that this President whould be recalled and recall initiatives should be in place from executive to the local school superintendent. Term limits and transparency as promised for ever budget item, line by line, yet the good ‘ol fellas will Not tell you even where the first $750 billion in stimulus monies went and ya know why…cause the banker pals with Hank Paulsen designated just who would benefit with little care for you whatsoever…

    As an elder, if you do not stand forthright and shoulder to shoulder with the Constitution, You, too will find yourself desperate and in despair for the US and all nations will succumb quickly to a global economic collapse leading to World War and a shock and awe never seen before…

    Vote Barry Obama..and this will be the final nail in the coffin as he so eloquently referred to needed more time to the “KGB Putinites” and the “Brutes of Tehran” behind closed doors. Barry Obama does not like the word – treason – however his actions are construed so by many, thus, by election time, his relection efforts despite his coffers of corrupt monies will Not be enough for his mask will be stripped over his face and the reality in his ambitions very much uncovered….

    Eight sitting Presidents and a number of Congresses have come and gone and We still have no US Federal Energy Policy, still dependent on the good ‘ol fellas of the major oil companies and the Middle East, so dysfunctional for generations..Whta a shame that the precious youth of the Middle East must be used as pawns by the wealthy of the Middle east as the Iranian thugs made sure a few years ago that its gold was locked up in Asia….just as the Vatican in WWII helped the SS bandits flee with passports to South America! What a corrupt world whereby so many are abuased by the unlawful, the bankers and others who control the purse strings and care little for the underdog!

    If public schools are so good, then Barry Obama, send your kids to public schools, however from a Chicago community organizer, you and your wife, so devisive in your prejudices have foollowed the monies and now your bank accounts find you on the other side of the track and Black America has become much enlightened to your ways, Barry!

    God Bless America!
