From libertarian jerry on the site Independent.org:
How can President Obama have a mandate to tax the Rich? Over 50% of the adult eligible voters didn’t vote. About 23% of the eligible voters voted for Obama and 22% voted for Romney,with about 1% voting for 3rd Party Candidates. When over 3/4 of the adult eligible voters either didn’t vote or voted for another candidate how does that add up to a mandate?
A very good question indeed. Mr. President?
