    News2 Florida man kills himself after President Obama was reelected

    A Florida man who warned that he might harm himself if Barack Obama won the presidency was found dead two days after the election of an apparent self-inflicted drug overdose.
    Henry Hamilton, 64, was discovered dead in his home on Nov. 8 alongside two empty bottles of prescription drugs and a living will on which he'd written "Do not revive! F--- Obama!"
    His partner Michael Cossey told the Key West police that Hamilton was "very upset about the election results," The Miami Herald reported.
    Hamilton had reportedly warned Cossey that, "if Barack gets reelected, I'm not going to be around."
    While Hamilton's official cause of death is still pending an autopsy result, a police spokeswoman told the paper that "There's absolutely no evidence of foul play."
    In addition to his anguish over the results of the presidential election, Hamilton was also "very stressed about his business," running a tanning salon, according to Cossey.
    Hamilton's friends were also apparently aware he was struggling, and one had asked the police department to regularly check on his well-being, the Herald reported.
    It was during one of those checks that Hamilton's dead body was discovered.

    Sounds like a poor person with the right mindset. A brave yet stupid soul. I'd do the right thing and donate some money to his family to cover burial costs and all of that jive, but this sounds like Mr. Hamilton had simply had enough of handout nonsense.

    It should say "My own hatred and ignorance put me here" on his grave stone.

    Even more interestingly, it mentions his partner as a male, so he was gay. Why would a gay guy vote for a candidate who was planning in limiting his ability to marry his partner? This guy was clearly not all there. Thoughts go out to his partner and family though. The guy obviously had a mental illness of some sort...

    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    ...as having prescriptions for anti-anxiety and schizophrenia would seem to obviously suggest.

    I didn't read the article itself, just the blurb BAMA posted. I guess if I had, it would have been even more obvious. Although I should clarify that a gay man voting for Romney isn't why I figured he had a mental illness. The brief description of his behavior in BAMA's quoted text made me believe that...

    And finally proof that I have way to many gay acquaintances. Anyone else would assume what you did, but I went straight to the gay couple thing...

    Only reason i assumed they were business partners, is cause the mention of his tanning salon and it would make a slight bit more sense if Romney woulda won and a gay person killed themselves, even though i can think of no real reason to kill ones self.
