Obese People are a bloated group of Swing Voters in the United States. Obese People can not be counted on to consistently vote for the same Political Party in Presidential Elections, much the same way this Demo can not be counted on to consistently fit inside a voting booth.

In 2008, Obese People want to see their Presidential Candidates support legislation to limit the production of Ethanol. Ethanol 85 is a bio-fuel that is primarily made from corn. Obese People have joined a coalition that includes Livestock Farmers, Oil Industry Tycoons and People Who Enjoy Eating Affordable Food to denounce Ethanol Initiatives.
Obese People don’t object to the massive pollution that is involved in the production and consumption of Ethanol, nor do they mind the fact that Ethanol has not lowered the price of gas in this country.
Obese People object to Ethanol because higher demand for corn has raised the price of all of the Corn-Syrup based foods that made this Demo into the Obese People they are today.
