Obama Wins! God Damn America!
American Sentinel ^ | November 4, 2008 | Michael Eden

Posted on 11/04/2008 11:12:37 PM PST by Michael Eden

Well, Democrats have wanted it for some time, and they have convinced enough people to their side that they have their wish: GOD DAMN AMERICA!

The voters apparently asked for it, and they're going to get it.

Bring it on, God! America says you aint got nothin'! We'll keep killing babies in abortion mills. Hell, we'll vote for a president that supports killing babies who've already been born and drawn their first breaths. How dare those little punks selfishly try to survive and force their mommas to "revisit their decision" to kill their babies in the first place. Nothing worse than a kid who doesn't know his or her place - especially when that place is to die. That bother you, God? Tough!

Abortion is killing the Social Security system, but that doesn't mean anything. So what if we've killed off 50,000,000 potential workers, and the ratio of workers to every retiree goes down year by year? We'll just tax those younger workers more! Serve 'em right for being born!

Referring to current worldwide financial crisis, [Dennis] Howard recalled his 1997 report titled, “The Abortion Bomb: America’s Demographic Disaster.” In it he said, “I see little hope that we can avoid an eventual crash on Wall Street that will make the 1930’s look like cashing in your cards after a bad game of Monopoly.”

He also predicted, “It will last longer than the Great Depression, and if it takes a war to get out of it - as happened with World War II - America as we know it may not survive.”

The societal cost of abortion, both economic and moral, has been studied for years, but very little mainstream media attention is given to the findings.

Bring it on, God! We'll figure out a way to keep killing millions upon millions of babies AND build our economy AND provide retirement for every American AND provide socialized medicine for everyone, too! We don't need you OR you God damned sanctity of human life!

When the socialized medicine experiment utterly fails and blows up in our faces, we'll just turn to a policy of forced euthanasia to cut costs. Most of our health care resources are wasted on people who are old and useless. Their contribution to society is behind them. We can kill unwanted seniors just as easily as we can kill unwanted babies, and it'll save us a lot more money, too! The Nazis called it Lebensunwertes Leben - "life unworthy of life" - all that remains is to decide whose life is "worthy" and whose life isn't. So watch out, Grandma and Grandpa! The generation that survived abortion will come after you! Just call it 'poetic justice.'

We can import workers from Mexico. Maybe their loyalty isn't to America. But God damn America, the US of KKK A! And maybe their education and skill level are generally unfit for anything more than manual labor. But liberal elites need their lawns mowed and they need nannies for their kids. And they want it cheap!

Mexican Americans - who overwhelmingly support benefits for the 20 or more million "document-impaired" - voted for Obama 2-1 over McCain. They are going to expect results. And, under a policy of "God damn America," they should get what they want. The damn country aint worth preserving, and being an American doesn't really mean a damn thing anyway (being a citizen of the world sounds ever so much better!), so let 'em come flooding in! We can give them health care! We can give them Social Security! We can educate their kids at our expense! And any claim that this will lead to rationing is just silly! By socializing medicine we can take advantage of government's efficiency. Government has the cost of a toilet seat down to a mere $600. Surely "Efficiency" is Big Government's middle name!

We don't need oil in God damn America. Nobody needs to put gas in their cars as long as they properly inflate their tires. We don't need fossil fuels; windmills. solar cells, and corn ethanol will make up for the 90% of energy that comes from fossil fuels any day now. We don't need our coal industry. And we certainly don't need inexpensive electricity. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says oil and coal and fossil fuels are killing us and ruining the world; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's trying to save the planet. If citizens of God damn America have to freeze in the dark to pay for the realization of that dream, well, don't forget that we voted for it.

God damn America is a land of socialism rather than meritocracy. We don't need to earn for ourselves when we can simply vote ourselves money from someone else! Success is something that should be punished, not encouraged! Everyone should be at the same level!

God damn America is a place where it is better to talk with murderous leaders of rogue terrorist regimes than journalists on the Fox News Channel. It is a place where the idea of a unipolar world with a preeminent United States is discarded for a multi-polar world where the United States is reduced to the status of one nation among many. A powerful foreign policy is exchanged with a policy based on comprimise and endless diplomatic negotiation. Winston Churchill was a political symbol of the determination and robust nationalism of the old America; Neville Chamberlain becomes the symbol of comprimise and reliance upon diplomacy rather than strength of God damn America.

The old America was a nation that would eliminate the threat of a rogue nation if it was believed that that nation was producing WMD that could threaten it. And even the Democrats in that America paid lip service to the need to deal with such enemies with strength and with force if necessary (as you can see here and here and here and here). God damn America is a place where those same Democrats who voted for the war cyncally turn on it the moment it was politically expedient for a cynical nation to do so. God damn America is a place where the leader of the Democrat Senate stated "that this war is lost" even as our troops were fighting to secure victory. And benefitted from having done so. God damn America is a place where a candidate for President can oppose the only strategy that could possibly have turned defeat into victory - and win the White House. God damn America is a place where a Congressman like Jack Murtha can call innocent Marines - whose only crime was fighting for their country - murderers and war criminals and STILL win re-election.

The old America was a place that respected our founding fathers and the Constitution they handed down to us. God damn America is a place where the man we elect as President said that those founding fathers had an "enormous blind spot" and that the Constitution "reflected the fundamental flaw of this country." The old America was a place in which founding father Thomas Jefferson said of the Supreme Court:

“This member of the Government was at first considered as the most harmless and helpless of all its organs. But it has proved that the power of declaring what the law is, ad libitum, by sapping and mining slyly and without alarm the foundations of the Constitution, can do what open force would not dare to attempt.”
God damn America is a place where the man we elected as President said of the Supreme Court:
But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent as radical as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution.
God damn America is a place where the state becomes God. The state is our savior, able to provide for us, and give us things, and take care of us. In Government we trust! Who even needs God anymore? The evolution we force feed our children in school tells us that the very idea of God is simply a form of brain damage. Rick Santorum tried to argue that we shouldn't just teach our kids that we're only soulless meat puppets, with neither purpose nor meaning nor any kind of ultimate destiny, but Democrats got rid of his nonsense in the 2006 slaughter of conservative values! And we have a new messiah now! We don't need that old Jesus Messiah anymore. God damn America is pluralist; Barack Obama is a much better Messiah for a pluralistic and relativistic society, anyway.

Barack Obama wins! God damn America!

Do your worst, God! Empty and hollow platitudes, and meaningless and vacuous rhetoric aside, we don't give a damn!

The American electorate have selected a candidate that accurately reflects themselves. A candidate who has world class bad judgment...just like the people who elected him. America was a good experiment while it lasted.

Tell you one thing. Lots of Christian hospitals will either stop taking federal funds or close their doors. Some will take federal funds and do abortions. Many more won’t and will either scale back or close their doors.

Infanticide and gutting the First and Second Amendments to the Constitution are big Vote getters.

Add in raising taxes, ruining the Military and hanging around with terrorists and bigots and you have a winning team.

Lots of Obama’s plans are similar to FDR’s in the thirties. And yes, a lot of the original ideas of the Founding Fathers WERE lost in the New Deal - and some are still absent. Heck, lots of folks think that the Real America died in 1933.

But - I sincerely believe, that as dark as this night is, America has not died. Not yet. But we will need to continue to fight for it.

Unspeakable grief. America just died. All that was good, and bright, and full of promise... Gone. The gift that previous generations bequeathed to us at such great cost has been thrown away as though it were a used tampon. Our great achievement this evening: We’ve managed to throw the baby out with the bathwater. We have become a nation of stupid sheeple.

Do you really think that BushCo has been good for America?

Do you think Palin being a heartbeat away from the Presidency is a good thing? She is enmeshed in the same corruption as the others you accuse.

http://www.salon.com/opinion/feature/2008/10/07/palins_unamerican/index.html?source=rss&aim=/opinion/feature

Here she is endorsing them again in March of this year:

That is just a taste.

Thank God the Republicans did not win the White House again.
How, exactly, does the Patriot Act protect the Constitution? So many things to undermine our Republic happened on BushCo’s watch.

I can see 1933 as the year that the infection started. When FDR basically packed the Supreme Court with people who would say what he was doing was constitutional, the bacteria was introduced into the system. Tonight was the culmination of the 75 years that the sickness grew.

“But - I sincerely believe, that as dark as this night is, America has not died. Not yet. But we will need to continue to fight for it.”

I can hope with you. If it’s not dead, it’s on life support and the nurse is headed for the plug.

I am reminded of a verse that is simple and true. Hopefully this verse will be read over and over and over again.

“If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

Sorry folks, but I can find no silver lining in any of this. This is the last straw for me. I’ve completely lost my faith in humanity, and in fact I think I’m just headed toward being sociopathic from here on out.

Too many people are now just irredeemable idiots. I really find myself wondering what we’re all doing here. No matter how hard the good people try to maintain what is good and just about America, the sneering, degenerate scumbags just lie, cheat, and steal their way into office. Their iron grip on the education system ensures that they will continue to inject their filth into naive, but fertile minds.

If you think it will get better, you’re just kidding yourself. We now will have full-on amnesty, and will add even more third-world scum to the home-grown human refuse that inhabits the democratic party. Add to that an apparently growing number of previously good people who have allowed political correctness to poison their minds, and it is clear where we are headed.

At this point, only a revolution ala 1776 can restore America, but we know that won’t happen (we long ago lost the spirit that created this once-great country). So I say bring on the asteroid, the genetically-engineered doomsday plague, or the terrorists’ nuclear Pearl Harbor. Who cares any more?

Nope. 1913

1) Amendment 16 personal income tax removed the state as a buffer between the people and national slavery.
2) Amendment 17 direct election of senators took the control of the Senate away from state legislators and undermined issues of federalism they were best equiped to understand.
3) Federal Reserve Act - not a big conspiracy - just an unnecessary bureaucracy doomed to inflate the currency to failure.

All 1913.

After that, prohibition (alcohol by amendment), women voting, New Deal, and prohibition (marijuana and other drugs without constitutional authority - for it or against it, there is no authority intrastate pre-FDR court jurisprudence)

It is good to finally hear some sanity in this endless night of horror. What we have feared has come to pass. But why are some of us sounding so surprised and as though we had nothing to do with it happening?

Why are we surprised that the country wanted no more of the Republican party's policies? The fact that Republican policies had degenerated into a watered down version of liberal policies, was lost on the dumb masses. They need someone to blame and the prefer blaming Republicans rather than their own.

Why are we surprised that the historical "miracle" of Freedom fighters winning against all odds (like in the Revolutionary War, like in WWI and WWII) does not seem to work for us anymore? Even many people here on FreeRepublic refuse to acknowledge God's hand in that miracle, or even to acknowledge God's existence!

Why are we Christians surprised that God's Word is true? He will have His way and His will be done.... even though it may not go the way we want it to. It seems that God has had enough of America's wayward behavior.

As for me, I prefer to think that it is not so much God punishing us in hatred, but rather His admonishing us as a loving Father would his child. Sort of like being sent to "time out" with no dinner and made to stay there till we see our wrongs. I voted for McCain today. How could I have done otherwise? But in my heart I knew that McCain would not be what America needs to cure its woes. Oh, we most certainly would have had a temporary reprieve, but it would have been fleeting, putting off the inevitable.

The American masses have spoken. They want to abandon God, trade their freedom for what they think will be a cushy living with redistribution of wealth, and experiment with the Marxist Utopia we have allowed their school textbooks to speak of. Why does any of that surprise us? Nothing we say will discourage them because they do not hear us. They do not hear us because they have lost all respect for our spokespersons. Can we blame them for that?

So are we doomed? Is this the end of America? I must confess that I was entertaining that idea a few minutes ago. Then I read MissouriConservative's post and it was like a ray of light! God's Word has a way of doing that, bringing blessings and joy to those that hear it. I printed it out and hung it on the wall by my desk where I can read it over and over again. (note to self: need to make a copy to hang in the kitchen as well). It lifts my heart. I would love to see it become a new goal of Free Republic in our ongoing fight to take back our nation.

Yep, I swear when (not if) we get hit again, if it's NYC or Chicago or SF or LA or any one of the cities that overwhelmingly went for the Marxist POS, I don't know that I'll have any feeling for them. Let their Marxist POS president deal with it.

Thank you. Last night, as I sat here after my family went to slumber, that verse was in my head. I have used it often in the past but haven’t thought of it for quite a while. God reminded me, through that verse, that He and only He is in control. Maybe I forgot that from time to time. God has blessed America for so long that I guess I just assumed that He would continue to do so. After that verse ran through my head, I was reminded of all the blessing God bestowed upon Israel...until they turned from Him. He chastised them until they returned, and then the blessings returned.

So I will join your crusade, so to speak, and add that verse to my tagline. I know it all won’t fit but enough will to get people to read it.

As John Adams put it, “Our constitution was made for a moral and religious people; it is wholly inadequate for any other.” The experiment begins. Did Adams know what he was talking about?

We are now living in a propagandized society. Democracy is incompatible with disinformation. Something has got to give.

Too few people cared about the fact that Obama went to a racist, anti-American church for 23 years. Obama is steeped in this kind of radicalism. It will come out in his governing, and damn us for voting for his agenda. By saying “God damn America,” all I’m doing is quoting the man whom Obama called his “spiritual adviser.”

As far as I’m concerned, Barack Obama is the first President of God Damn America.

Due to abortion, we’ve killed so many potential workers that there are now only 3.3 workers for every retiree. And in less than 20 years, it will be only 2 workers per retiree. Our system can’t keep going - and the special interests will not let us fix it the way it needs to be fixed. Like the worst kind of fools, we are killing ourselves. Socialism has failed every time it’s been tried, but here we are, asking for it again.

A vote for Obama was a vote for a nuclear Iran that will be able to conduct global terrorism with impunity. Iranians are gleeful; they know Obama will say whatever, but do nothing.

Israel will almost certainly have to attack Iran themselves, and may do so before Obama’s inauguration so he can’t tell them NOT to attack. That would be a rude awakening for a country that voted for a man who isn’t ready to lead, and who has the wrong vision to lead.

Democrats were all over the financial meltdown. Clinton pushed the Democrat-passed “Community Reinvestment Act” that encouraged the banking industry to make bad loans (by claiming the GSEs Fannie and Freddie would back them), and forced them to do so when they balked. Barack Obama was one of the lawyers that sued Citibank in the landmark case that forced banks to loosen their credit requirements for low income and minority applicants.

Penny Pritzker, Obama’s national finance chair, was at the epicenter of the subprime loan scandal. She paid $460 million of her own money to avoid jail. Franklin Raines, Jim Johnson, Jamie Gorelick collected over $300 million in bonuses while playing with the books. Barney Frank and Democrats refused twice to regulate Fannie and Freddie. They unanimously opposed the bills and threatened a filibuster Republicans didn’t have the numbers to overcome - and then blamed Bush and Republicans for failing to regulate!

And we punished Democrats by putting them in charge of everything!

I believe we have voted for a disaster and quite possibly a Great Depression #2.
