I feel so stupid. I have an accredited IQ of over 160, and it seems I am an idiot. I have been put in my place. If given 99 more times to vote against socialism and Obama I would because because logic would dictate no other action. But I was truly wrong and stupid to over estimate the intelligence of the common person. I was wrong and stupid to under estimate the selfishness and immorality of the self entitled cursed with the inability to reason. I hold no anger or contempt for the unwashed masses that have sentenced us all to mediocrity followed by abject failure. The only humane reaction is to pity those that lack the ability to reason, lack the confidence and perseverance to trust in ones self ability to be productive and to survive. For they will be robbed of the feeling of achievement which is what separates the human being from the poop throwing primates. Today we bid farewell to the world's last good hope of freedom. The once shining light of productive spirit and moral fortitude has been quenched. We will all bear the price of the immoral self entitled electorate. We will all pay the invoice levied by the uninspired. To Ben Franklin, John Adams,Thomas Jefferson, and the other founders... Thank you. It was a good run. Your experiment worked for two hundred years and produced the greatest of all in history. Thanks for the memories.
To Ben Franklin, John Adams,Thomas Jefferson, and the other founders... Thank you for making it very clear to us the sacrifices and hardships you all went through to give us this fine nation.
Your experiment worked for two hundred years and produced the greatest of all in history. We are yet again at a turning point, but those of us who share in the vision you all had know full well what is at stake and we will see this great nation rise again.
That’s a cheerful start...mind if I borrow that for about four years?
Agree, agree, agree! Anyone that I encounter that voted for 0bama is persona non grata with me. I’m mad enough to ask them, grocery checker, waiter, whatever, I’ll walk away.
Me too. Keep trying to pep talk myself but to no avail.
Great idea Enjoy I am going to St Pete Beach for the weekend
Me too...I cant focus, cant get anything done...weeping at practically everything. This sucks (and I never use that word.)
Same Here, i am weeping for my country and my liberties and my freedom...
I have never before mentioned anything about myself.
Today, I am having problems with the rationalization of yesterday’s events.
How could I have been so wrong? I mean, I had so much misplaced faith and trust in my neighbors.
I did not want to appear as a snob. I am sorry if it appeared that way.
I’m with you. To top it off it’s cold, windy, cloudy and a light rain here in middle TN. Don’t care to go outside at all.
It was a narrow defeat, not a huge one. Let’s mope for a little while, and then dust ourselves off and try again.
Let’s have a long term project of bringing the wisdom of conservatism to the general public. That must underlay a change of the tide. We must do the hard work of growing the American culture, the American Way of Life.
I’m going to make sure my children completely understand America’s founders and guiding principles. They are at the age where they can turn around and talk about it with their friends.
What will you and others be doing? No need for a quick answer. It’s worth pondering carefully, after the moping stops.
People are very busy. An informed voter depends on a disinterested press accurately reporting. It's not really there.
That wasn't what happened here. Obama ran on fear, ran against Bush, and the 'historical nature' of his presidency bought him a second chance.
ObamaCare is coercing larger service industry businesses to move their workforces to part time and capping the part time under 30 hours. This will push more people to work two jobs or become dependent.
With SCOTUS having green lighted the ObamaCare mandate and no GOP sweep, it's here to stay. But it's unworkable. The part time economy will stretch more people across jobs to make ends meet; more might find jobs so the fake unemployment rate may drop. But at what cost? These won't be career building jobs that keep yourself fed and housed.
Expect single-payer to be positioned as the "fix" for the failed Republican plan of ObamaCare.
An when Obama gives amnesty to 30 million illegal immigrants soon then what ? You can’t come back from that.
I know several "brilliant" people who voted twice for Obama. Idiots.
Ted Bundy was by all accounts brilliant. Sociopathic serial killer.
No offense intended, but you are not special. We will all suffer.
I realize The Big Bang Theory is a sit-com, but I am reminded of the episode of Dr. Sheldon Cooper indicating his noted brilliance followed by the question, "Does anyone know how to open the toolbox?"
I like it.
On the bright side...if you go out in Tennessee; you'll run into good and decent Americans. I'm in Red Hampshire, so I stay in even if the sun is out.
“An[d] when Obama gives amnesty to 30 million illegal immigrants soon then what ? You cant come back from that.”
Bingo. Ditto with forcing everyone onto government-subsidized health care. In four years, a vote for a Republican will mean cutting your health care benefits. Not going to happen.
We'll all be wondering for a long time just what the hell happened last night. Let's keep our wits about us (pun intended) and figure out how to survive this coming tsunami.
Best regards, FRiend.
