Its a interesting toon. Obama did not get 48.9% of the vote in 2012. That means there is for all intents 1/2 the population of the country who are not in agreement with his policies. Jefferson warned future elected officials they needed to pay attention to what the 49% wanted and not just the 51%. I believe this to be the reasons for the major polarization of our country. The 49% are not our enemy. The last time we disagreed this strongly on issues wasn’t a pretty sight.
Personally I feel trapped in the mob rule Jefferson warned us about.
