What the hell happened?

Posted on 11/06/2012 10:15:36 PM PST by Perdogg

What the hell happened? Can someone explain to me what happened? I live in NoVa. I saw no OFA ground game none. Nothing. I do not understand why there was a D+6 turn out. What happened to the Indies?

Exit polls indicated the economy was the top concern. Just 25% said they were better off than 4 years ago. And yet they voted for the status quo.

In summary, more morons turned out than rational voters. They believed The Amateur feels their pain. They deserve every bit of the coming collapse.

That’s a great point. I didn’t even think about that. When the economy suffers people want more government action rather than less and hence the problems we face today.

If election for President is fixed, why not fix it so they also win the House? Why would they not do that, and have complete power, ala 2008-2010?

Don’t buy the fixed mantra. If Republicans had won, I guarantee the left-wing sites would also be claiming “fix”.

I started a business in 2009. For 4 years I have been trying to make it work and I knew I just had to hold on til the election and that the economy would improve and allow for success. I’ve given up tonight. I am going to shutter my doors, and live off my VA... Things are not going to get better in the next 4 years. Call me a moocher, I’ve lost hope. I’m going to stop trying to save my house from foreclosure, and just try to forget I ever had the American Dream

47% are locked-in Dem/Lib voters.

The more that the Left can shackle with government dependency, that number will continue to climb.
When you start out with at least 47% who are not voting for you no matter what, you have a very difficult mountain to climb.

So Gallup, Pew and Rasmussen totally blew their estimates of R+3 party ID? Or perhaps the LV vs. RV distinction was bogus.

Lol, I hadn’t thought of it before either. But it clicked when I was reading your post.

As a conservative, I voted for Mitt Romney here in Tennessee. However, I will not vote for another McCain or Romney.

As I've said to other Freepers before, we are a fringe phenom. According to, freerepublic accounts for 0.025% of web traffic. RINO's will always win red states. The problem they have is winning swing states. Back in the day, Clinton and Gore were considered DINO's. And that's why they won both 1992 and 1996 - because they won some swing states in the South. We need the reverse strategy to win swing states in the North.

The real truth about this election is the ever growing takers beat the Makers. And the takers will only grow in the next 4 years. I will leave it to you moderates to carry the water in the future. Me... I will continue stocking up for the coming collapse. Greece is Coming to America sooner than later.

I'm an extreme conservative who believes that capital punishment should be mandatory for murder so that 100% of homicide perps are executed instead of the current rate of 1%. I also believe capital cases should have a special judicial track so that arrest to trial to conviction to appeals to execution should take no more than 3 years - what they were back before the 1960's.

I'm also realistic. The world around us has changed. Between freebies and their stance on social issues, Democrats have succeeded in locking up close to 50% of the electorate. We need pols who can pry loose a small number of their coalition. We can do it by either adopting big government or loosening our stance on social issues. It wouldn't surprise me if a lot of RINO's are RINO's out of political necessity.

Well Spoken, thank you and Bless you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I don't know just how Matthew 24 fits for this moment, but there is something there to heed, vs 22 says: “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened".

I sense the Lord is working and something is beginning to happen. I mourn for those that are not, will not be ready.

We definitely are in a Spiritual Battle, and it is not going to be pleasant. Time for some to dust off that BIBLE and start reading.

Throw the “social zealots” under the bus and your theoretical gains from the fags, fruits, and nuts will not come close to the loss of Conservative base.

It all depends on what she does next. Right now, the GOP is on the wrong side. We are selling off factories and firing people. Not the way to win elections. We need to be on the side of progress. How Palin goes about that, will make all the difference. After a suitable time, perhaps she can join forces with the most recent VP. The two of them would be a powerful team. IMHO.

There's a good chance we'll see an economic crash before 2016. If that happens, we *might* see some kind of hope for a conservative pairing for the White House. We'll see. In the past 12 years, we've doubled the national debt. We might be reaching the limits of our debt capacity, especially with Obamacare about to go online.

The shallow and unfulfilling end of the pool looks better than the sea of opportunity and challenge.

We are still counting votes, but wasn’t turnout for this election almost 14 million less than 2004?

What are the demographics on those who stayed home?

This also went against anecdotal evidence of huge voter turnout.

“5% of the Latino vote went to Obama. 93+% of the black vote went for Obama. I’m not sure about the female vote, but that went for Obama as well.”

Solution...maybe.....Marco Rubio and Mia Love.

“Start by kicking the bedroom police arm of the GOP to the curb.”

It is bad enough that we have walked away from G-d s much as we have, it will not make things better to further add insult to any injury our nation has inflicted on His blessings to our nation.

Factor in the muzzies, that have come to America to BREED, there in itself is the American Future. Think about it for awhile, let it sink in, they will dominate, and the Politicians and Media will happily usher it in with tolerance speak.

When they multiply and dominate, those 47%er's and the Media will be hollering like stuck pigs, useful idiots will be eliminated first. It will happen and with the blessings of Obama.

We could change things if it were not for the muslim factor, but it is to late now.

I wept, writing those words. It grieves my heart to say these things and to see what has become of our beloved country and to see God remove His hand of protection and blessing from America. The evil, wicked, dictator God has imposed upon us, and the utter shame and degradation which God has allowed to fester and cover the land from the top down, as a direct result of our rejection of Him and His Christ.

America is "Ichabod", ...the Lord has departed. That said, God is in control; all of this was prophesied and we are seeing it fulfilled before our very eyes.

Nevertheless, not my will, but thy will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven. Even so, come Lord Jesus.

Reasons for the apocalypse

White northern liberals

latinos...up 5% for Obama this time over 2008...that is the key turd in the punchbowl

whites up 4% from 2008 but down 4% from 2010

Jews...same old same old...libs..70% this time down only 4 points from last time ..a lost cause..don't get me started

Catholics..same old crap...less than 2008 but still a majority voted for the Kenyan..amazing...he shat on them for 4 damned years

Young folks...better actually...60% this time but 66% last time...hope there I guess

blacks...why waste brain cells even thinking about it...they sure don't

bottom line is that:

Dixie whites and Indiana and Pioneer West cannot do it anymore...this was our Alamo or Dunkirk or Khartoum or Dien Bien Pu...whatever

unless we could miraculously here forward get that 62% of whites to vote GOP we will lose

minorities vote anti white and for redress and entitlement

folks here need to get used to that and pasty white southern baptist Rubio and his gorgeous blonde gringa Colombian wifey ain't gonna fix jack

Mexicans hate Cubans and Colombians too actually

the future no doubt lies in shifting Indian DNA latinos and northern white lefties to our team

i have no idea how to do that without going left ourselves

a real war might help

a worse economy...highly possible with assclown reelected

i cannot believe how all this has collapsed so started with the Immigration reform in 1965

but the real meat came in the 90s after the Reagan amnesty and then the Dems and GOP embraced allowing in all these folks to out vote us

in 1980...if 53% of whites had voted Democrat.. Carter would have won

nothing will ever be the same again....I feel like I took about 1000 mikes of Owsley yesterday and I'm plodding thru the foggy aftermath

a brave new world indeed
