Vanity: Time to stop being down in the dumps and start planning for 2014 and 2016

OK...so Obama has won reelection. It will be bad, of that there is NO doubt. However, good can come from this.

“Seriously? What’s the point? Conservatism is dead. We had our last chance today, and blew it.”

That is defeatist nonsense and just isn’t so. “Conservatism” is not dead....Romney WAS NOT CONSERVATIVE....so it didn’t die with his loss or Obama’s win. This is an opportunity to reenergize conservatism, not its funeral. IF Romney had to be elected in order for “conservatism” to continue....then it had already died.

Also, Obama DOES NOT HAVE A MANDATE. It lookd like he may barely win or outright lose the popular vote....he is the lamest of lame ducks. The GOP House should treat him as such.

Thanks.

Palin is still here, Jim Robinson, the tea party, the new conservatives that have been put into office over the last 4 years are all still here.

2010 was an HISTORIC election victory for conservatives and the republican party, not just a good year, 2014 is something worth fighting for and definitely winnable.

I agree with everything you've posted here. I was as enthusiastic about Romney as any true conservative could be (i.e., not very, but willing to support him), but I also go back to the first prognostication I made to the senior management of my company several months ago when I suggested that this was largely a meaningless election. Think of it as a case of re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

One interesting consideration for the next four years is that the Democrats will go into 2016 without a "natural" frontrunner for the White House. Joe Biden sure isn't going to be their candidate, to the point where he may even be pressured to step down in favor of a younger replacement.

I'll continue my process of "going Galt" to the extent that I can. I've fuly divested myself of my ownership stake in my old company, I've rejected an offer to become a partner in my new company, and I plan to spend the next four years pretty much doing the same thing I've been doing for the last four: be fair but absolutely mercenary in my business dealings, don't take any sh!t from anyone, and always keep my options open even if it means relocating to another state -- or another country -- for better business prospects.

Things are bad, but IT IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD PEOPLE! We haved survived worse. Somethings to make things better, they have to get worse first.


Yes, I believe this very conversation was taking place in Jewish communities in Germany in 1935.

Things can get worse, but if you plan for a future that works like the past, you could be in for a rude awakening.

You’re absolutely right. We’re done. We’ll be in a shooting Civil War, or be a Muslim Caliphate within 4 years.
We just had our country taken away from us. He gets atleast 2 more SC judges. Everything you remember about America is done. It’s gone.
They’ll be lining people like Sarah Palin, and Allen West against a wall before 4 years. All of us too. Remember what Valerie Jarrett said? We all have it coming.
The only thing “good” that’s coming from this is that I now see I have wasted 30 years of my life fighting for a country that doesn’t exist, and believing in a god that doesn’t exist. I guess I can stop wasting my time, find me a hole in the woods out here in KY, and watch the rest of it burn.

The problem is there are not enough conservatives and libertarians to win an election. Your kidding yourself if you tyhink there are.

Also we have to change our tactics if we want to win. The Dems won on a negitive campaign. When some of us said to fight fire with fire many people on FR said they didn’t want to fight like that because Americans didn’t like dirty politics well evidently they do because we just got our butts kicked.

We relied too much on independents helping us win and they are nothing but a bunch of fence sitters and cannot be relied on.

There are not enough blacks or Hispanics to win an election Obama won twice because of the liiberal white votes. The same people voted for him that he and his called racist and disrespect I hope they get everything he gives them.

I am tired, old, depressed and broke. I did all I could do to get this guy defeated. Well, we came closer than with McLame but when you lose two in a row, you are out of step with the will of the majority....it is time to fold the tent.

I am taking a break from politics, probably for good. Fag Marriage amendent passed in Washington State. I am out of step on that front too. We now have a nation where abortion, contraceptives and fag marriage are more important to the electorate than a balanced budget, a decent business climate and a sound social security system.

I fear based on how we have turned our back on religion and ethics, Oturd is just the first of many plagues headed for this once great nation. Too bad but the electorate is like a ball lost in the high weeds....money for nothing anc chicks for free is more than a song now, it is a way of life.

It is over dude... secession maybe... but the marxists won the last election we will ever have. Three Scotus picks... obamacare... no more coal or nuclear. $10.00 a gallon gas... 70% tax rates... another 10 trillion in debt... a final surrender to mexico and then iran... social security going broke... medicare ending... single payer health policy... and you want to talk about 2014 and 2016? What the hell are we going to use for money to fight a battle against a black, hispanic and minority white coalition that we cannot outnumber? Just like the lies that the gop spoon fed us all day... 2014 and 2016 are nothing but bullshit.

Now, the democrats will expand their attacks on our Christian churches...homosexual marriage will be a reality...the issue was never really about gay rights people...it is about the destruction of our Christian churches.

They will take over by regulatory and taxation power our private sector.

They will create an atmosphere where it is even more difficult for opposition...look at how the media helped the democrat party this election cycle...it is insane to think that it will get better later...they are going to consolidate power even more than during the first term.

No, if we want to change things we will have to bring down this government by other means...legal means. In Poland they boycotted and walked off their jobs and defeated the Communists...but, in this country we still live in a relative lap of luxury...most will not risk their precious livelihoods to save the nation...hell, I remember how many could not go to the Tea Party event just before the obamacare vote because of familiy or friend get togethers...these people will not be put out by restoring freedom.

So, we can live here watching this country decline and our children’s opportunities die more every year or we can choose to move to better more free nations...now there are plenty.

Don’t know what I will do yet but I am leaning towards moving to another nation.

People here are in denial. It’s sad to see.
When Reagan was President 84 percent of Americans were working.
16 percent were takers.

Now, 47 percent of Americans are takers. And with 4 more years
Of Obama, that number will grow. More food stamps, more welfare, more
Illegals
More Obama Phones. U get the picture. The Takers have overrun
The country. Unfortunately, the numbers are just not there nationally.

Bush wasn't a conservative. Dole wasn't a conservative. Bush the younger wasn't a conservative. McCain wasn't a conservative. Willard wasn't a f*cking conservative.

What makes you think anything will change4 in the GOP over the next four years?

The GOP is out of excuses and we will not likely survive this election as a Unified Nation.

It is about to.get worse. I am done. Making plans to.regroup and get off the grid some how. It is very clear that these idiots want the govt to run things. I am seriously thinking about costa rica.

You have seen what this man has done. I have never in all my years of elections have seen someone get reelected in the state this country is in. There is nothing to stop him now.

For once in my life I am truly frightened. More people are going to lose their jobs more take over of businesses and industry through regulatios. You/we are going to be witnesses to the total collapse of our capital
sysem and in its place a socialist government much like Venezuela.

Most of us knew that this election was for all the marbles and we lost and by losing we lost what was left of the republic. Elections in 4 more years? Don’t thing so. America is goone. The only satifaction is that these people who voted for Obama will suffer too.

As for Romney he was not my first choice. But as I watched him he had gained my.respect and trust. He would have made a fine president. He should have won tonight. Something is terribly wrong here.

If the GOP wants to win national and other key elections...they will need to:

- Dump the Liberal PhonyCon RINO candidates and agenda. It does not work. If you still think it works...maybe you should talk to President Dole, President McCain, and ask George HW Bush how his second term went?

- Dump the “we need Hispanic voters” nonsense. All that is doing is pushing Illegal Alien Amnesty...which turns off a large segment of the base. And, Illegal Aliens and their supporters are never going to vote GOP anyway

- Dump the Free Trade/Globalism nonsense. Why emulate the EU? And, you cannot win conservative-to-moderate working-class voters who vote Democrat because you want to ship their job to Communist China. Like the “Hispanic Voters/Amnesty” nonsense....Free Trade/Globalism is a sure loser in the Rust Belt states. and, Free Trade is a Liberal idea...look at all the Dems and European Socialists who support it?

- Realize that Fox News, GOP Talk Radio, and most of GOP Media is not conservative. They used to be conservative, but now they attack people who bring up Obama Eligibility! These are the same people that were willing to impeach Clinton for soiling an interns dress....and now they are chickening out on a wholly Constitutional regarding w Obama?

- Emphasize sites like FR and others that support and promote real conservative values. Get the word out to others. Alluding to my previous point....I cannot believe there are those in the GOP Media who attack FreeRepublic, WND, Drudge, and some other sites. Hint: A GOP Talker or Media person is not a conservative if they are attacking this site or other conservative sites

It has NEVER been this bad, not even under Roosevelt, at least he wanted the US to survive, this guy does not and those who support him are interested in one thing....keeping their bennies coming.

Best case, dollar collapses, which it would were Europe not a basket case too, and we start over. Such a calamity most would not be able to deal with and rapid change would come.

I just e-mailed my Army father (Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, Air Medals) and issued a similar apology for being a `Pollyanna’ about the mental acuity and character of my fellow Americans. He saw this coming, I didn’t.

I believed, surely America wouldn’t punch this Zero’s ticket again after the last four years! I thought it was a lock. (I know. Don’t call you Shirley.)

So ... `Turn those frowns upside down’? `The sun’ll come up tomorrow’? America just re-elected a huge pile of stable-leavings, knowing what he is ... And there ain’t no pony in there, anywhere.

I’m dropping out, too, oldplayer and doing more prepping. I won’t make a nickle more than I want to be taxed—Why should I work more for less? So that I can turn it over to Zero so he can give it away?—and I’m gaming the system as much as I can. I have a cousin in Alaska and may look into that.

There’s no working to patch something as badly flawed as half this country has proven itself to be tonight. It is what it is.

Off to bed now, it’s a brand new day in Amerika tomorrow.

1) No conservative to FR liking is never going to be president again. Romney was the gops best hope; Santorum,
Bachman, Hunstman, Gingrich, Paul would not have done better.

3) How do you square “conservatives can stop devouring each other and develop consensus” with “NO MORE RINOs”? The gops shrinking tent is a real liability and to keep throwing out RINOs (libertairians, and Reagan democrats, etc.) just is not good strategy for winning elections.

5) Doomsday is on Dec 21. ;)

I mean, pray for guidance on what to do *now*.

Secondly -- was it God's answer, or man's fraud?

There were reportedly 100,000 more votes for Obama in Philadelphia than there were registered Dems; and Dade County was allowed to have approx. 1/4 of their precincts continue voting *three hours* after the polls closed.

GOP turnout was very large; it may be that voter fraud was larger.

*IF* that was the case, was it God's will or our not being vigilant (even long term, to allow the buildup and conditions for the fraud to be put in place and considered "normal")?

What you say is true and far too many here are in denial. Rush had better be prepared for what he will face tomorrow. This is no longer a center right nation. We as Conservatives are a hated commodity. The dim party tonight has stated that Conservatives are the problem. They hate us and they want us gone... they want us out of the gop... no problem there... I am gone from the gop forever. It is just a matter of time before we either are forced to swear allegiance to the new world order and deny all that we know to be true... or face the Gulags... I will never turn my back on what I know that America was meant to be... any more than I would turn my back on CHRIST my savior. I will die with my boots on regardless.

Right. I look forward to all the good Boner can do from his high chair, crying and bawling his eyes out. The Repub House is just as powerless as it was before the election. ObamaCare is alive and well, and will be shoved down our throats, thanks to our so-called conservative Chief Justice. Don't be so damned delusional. We are supposed to be the rational ones. Accept what has happened, and plan accordingly. I for one will be buying LOTS of ammo and trying to find a nice plot of land off the grid. Good luck to you all...

We need to educate the dumbed-down masses about the real principles of liberty that the country was founded on.

Just as the left did during the long march, but in reverse.

Good point about younger voters. Obama did surprisingly poorly among the 18-29 age group that was so solidly behind him in 2008. I think I saw an exit poll saying he got only 56% of the vote in that age group. Romney won handily among older voters, too -- despite all the Democratic "Medi-scare" nonsense.

I'll tell you what's happening here, folks. This country is basically waging demographic warfare, where people in age cohorts and socio-economic groups with low unemployment rates are voting for Democrats simply to ensure that they stay employed -- regardless of the implications for the rest of America.

This is exactly what we're seeing in Europe, where people in their 40s and 50s live comfortably in protected jobs even as the unemployment rate exceeds 30% or 40% for younger people who simply can't break into "the system."

It’s past time to WHIG the GOP & start over. It’s DEAD. It’s LIBERAL. It’s as Corrupt as the DEMs Now. It’s FINISHED. Conservatives need to form a onstitutional Conservative party and defund the GOP starting now. There has to be a 180 degree difference. DEMLITE will not change anything.

Best case, dollar collapses,


Which helps my buried junk silver.

Anyone who is a student of world history and bible prophesy can easily see what’s going down now. I had my suspicions in 2008, but the veil is fully removed. No, I do not think Obama is the beast. But I suspect we will know who it is soon enough.
