I understand the assumption behind presidential candidate Mitt Romney's statement that the 47% of the American population that is receiving federal money is likely to vote for the Democratic candidate. Fortunately, that's not necessarily the case. Think of all the retirees, Social Security and Medicare recipients in the Tea Party - for example, in the crowd in Florida cheering on VP candidate Paul Ryan. In other words, Mitt, not everyone can be bought. Not everyone thinks only of his or her immediate interest. So just keep trucking!
