"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

A Vote for Emotion

More from Fox News' exit poll:

Romney wins big on leadership, vision and values.   Obama wins huge on the amorphous post-modern emotional attribute of "caring."   This despite Romney's lifetime of service and charitable giving, and Obama's demonstrated life history of cold narcissim.  

We are a foolish nation.
