And just because Barack Obama
Won the presidential election
Does not mean that half the country
Doesn't feel the same way I do

from Macklemore – American Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This two party system is fucked. people defining who they are by who they vote on.

Continuing his satire of uneducated, racist rednecks, Macklemore pulls a line directly out of the Tea Party and other far right’s rhetoric. “Aberdeen”, despite being a ‘patriotic American’ will not support his President.
