Posted on 10/29/2012 4:50:59 AM PDT by LD Jackson
The expert opinions on who will win the election on November 6 and become our next President vary widely. Some believe Mitt Romney has the momentum and will win going away. Other opinions are not so favorable and believe Barack Obama will win. I wish I could answer the question, but my crystal ball is fogged up and I can't tell which direction our country will be taking after next Tuesday. But if Obama does win a second term, who will we have to thank for that blessing? Personally, I have someone in mind and they have promised to be back to rub our faces in it after the election.
Those of you who have read Political Realities know I have no problem publishing comments who dissent from my opinion.I enjoy a good discussion and debate, especially when both sides are respectful in their disagreements. On that note, I received a comment on last Friday's post that I wanted to share with you. I approved it and you can see my direct reply to the commenter at the link. Please note the user name the commenter used to make his/her comment; non racist - for a change.
ok so I am just browsing these one sided hypocritical bunch of lies while wondering how I could be living in a nation so divided by lies. I am not sure if some of you sniffed too much glue as a child or your parents where too misled by a west Virginian or east Appalachian group of infested farmers . either way I will be back in 10 days to rub the fact that we will have a re-elect of the same president and this phony jerk that says one thing while doing another scurries back into the crevice of slimy millionaires where he belongs. I feel sorry for the one sided losers that monopolize their time reading garbage like this and then allowing their emotions to run rampant. Country was founded and runs better bottom up -not top down. Execs have too much power and need to be stripped of their corrupt lies Romney is just another Wall Street thief.As you can see by reading the comment, it didn't take non racist long to get into the personal insults to anyone who is supporting Mitt Romney. Beyond that, he/she is merely repeating the talking points of the Obama campaign. In other words, class warfare, the rich are evil, etc. He also made sure everyone knows what they read on Political Realities is pure garbage and a waste of the time it takes to read it.
I am past getting upset when I receive a comment like this. Obviously, I will never agree with the sentiment declared by non racist. Having said that, I do take exception to the implication that anyone not supporting Barack Obama is a racist. As I told him/her in my direct reply, my disagreements with our current President have nothing to do with the color of his skin and everything to do with his policies and his lack of leadership.
Until recently, this election has been about the economy. Even though that is still the overwhelming concern for many, if not most, Americans, foreign policy has entered into the equation. Every day, it seems we are learning more and more of how the Obama administration failed, in regards to Libya and the attacks that took the lives of four Americans. The information we now have tells us Barack Obama knew the attack was taking place and from the beginning, knew it had nothing to do with the video that took so much of the blame, early on. We know Obama and his administration has been lying about what they knew and when they knew it, and that they are in the process of trying to bury that information. That means we may very well reelect a President that has been lying to us for several weeks. If he will lie about what happened in Libya, what else has he been less than truthful on?
I often wonder if there is hope left for America. In my way of thinking, recent events should automatically disqualify Obama from winning a second term. How anyone could trust him enough to cast another vote for him is beyond my comprehension. If Obama wins a second term, what little hope we have left will be gone. The America we love and hold dear may very well not recover from another four years of Barack Obama in the White House. For that, we will have people like non racist to thank. You'll have to forgive me if I sound less than thankful for their gift of reelecting a man who can not be trusted to serve another four years in the highest office in our country. If that happens, this will no longer be the America I grew up in. Thanks, non racist!
Sandy? The “Kool Aid” pitcher?
Obama support is only from government dependent ignorant poor or anti-American liberals. That’s who to blame.
That there is not really a valid opposing political point of view, but is probably all one can expect from Obama supporters.
That's where your critic runs off the track ~ but everybody knows about those things anyway.
There are 25 foot waves on Lake Michigan this morning and that is important ~ I remember what a 30 footer did to the South Shore communities.
So, when's the last time you saw a hurricane reach from Baltimore to Chicago?
Too soon. But... Obama is the result of years of Ds transforming, with some R help, of election from civic duty to football game, and the strategy that goes with it. It sounds counter-intuitive and elitist but the fact is low voting population was a phony issue.
Thanks to Motor-Voter, crazy early voting, and relaxed absentee voting rules we now have a higher voting population but also a vastly more uniformed one. Of course that was the end-game for the D’s & unfortunately the R’s played along. Take a look at Piven & Cloward’s book on the subject... yes THAT Piven & Cloward. It’s why every election since 2000 has been nip & tuck & will continue to be for years to come.
Frankly I have no idea where you guys picked up that idea. Bizarrre ~ like saying 'peeps who use federal reserve money will vote Democrat' ~
So all the Republicans who spent month after month bad mouthing Romney, even after he had the primaries wrapped up, are now blame free?
He does not win a second term.
Just wow! 25 foot waves on Lake Michigan. We visit Mt. Baldy about once a year and love the lake, sand, and good time.
Ignorance and Want.
“And they cling to me, appealing from their fathers. This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased...”
it's the nature of politics in a a single member district to rapidly devolve from the patrician ideal to two roughly equal parties made up of barely compatible coalition partners ~ who seek to get at least 50% + 1 vote! ~ 'cause that's how you win.
This country is made up of thousands of single member districts ~ counties, townships, cities, towns, congressional, state legislative, the states themselves, and finally the entire country!
This is America.
In Europe the democracies generally use voting schemes that reserve coalition building for the day after the election ~ we are not Europe.
So all the Republicans who spent month after month bad mouthing Romney, even after he had the primaries wrapped up, are now blame free?
Yes, just like the cheating GOP elites will also be blame free. Romney didn’t win without a lot of unethical moves being pulled on his behalf.
Asking Romney to step down to let a real Republican run is hardly bad-mouthing him. He is what he is and can't help it. Alas, we already have one of those guys so it's four more years of a negative experience no matter which one of them wins.
Which means it's very important to make sure he knows ~ whoever it is ~ that there's a serious opposition out there who are not going to accept this leftwingtard pablum as constituting real life. The true believers and party fanatics might put up with it, but not real Americans.
Thank you so much for making my case.
how utterly stupid of you.
obamugabe has his own owning block to do that.
the real problem in any election for the last century has been leftwingtardism ~ under a wide variety of names. sometimes it comes from people who some claim to be republicans. when it does it must still be opposed to the bitter end. there are those who think if the guy parts his gray hair just so he can be trusted ~ but if he's a leftwingtard that simply isn't so. same thing for his running dog lackeys and smiling sycophants ~ they too must be opposed.
ABC, CBS & NBC.

Government Oversight: There is no federal agency that has regulatory authority over the elections industry according to Brian Hancock, spokesperson for the Federal Election Commission (FEC), and Jorge Martinez, spokesperson for the Department of Justice (DOJ). No agency or organization even has a complete list of voting machine companies. Using a rough estimate, there are about 70 voting machine companies worldwide, with at least 48 based in the U.S.. The FEC lists only 19, the Texas-based National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) lists 16 that are 'industry certified' (which are outmoded and voluntary guidelines), while the IFES Buyers Guide lists about 64 companies worldwide that appear to be engaged in electronic voting. Meanwhile there is one company that is 'flying under the radar' of both the FEC and NASED, that is the Bermuda-based Accenture (formally Andersen Consulting) that has the contract for the online military vote in 2004

The media for acting as lap dogs instead of watch dogs
Those who fell into the entitlement mentality, begging for free stuff, failing to realize they are now slaves to the state
Illegal immigrants, felons and others who should not be voting
Those who organize vote fraud
Second worst ~ the Worst was Buchanan ~ you can’t get worse than leaving office after having set the stage for the Civil War.
The answer is simple....
Low information voters, and the corrupt media.
Democracy rewards the lowest common denominator...
The people are happy to vote themselves largess from the government they perceive as responsible for providing that largess.
The spirit of the American revolution, and the American experiment in self governance has dwindled in the large population centers.
This country is at the extreme end of duration for minimal governments providing liberty to a self reliant populace.
God save the republic.
The American voters deserve the blame. Large percentages don’t have the remotest clue about any issue beyond what puts more of someone else’s money in their pocket.
That would have been my answer.
Individuals who voted for Obama; that is the who, lol.
Blacks, Illegals, and voter fraud would get him a Second Term.....no other way.
Yet I see these as symptoms of a deeper illness, an illness with which the population at large has been infected, the false idea that 'the world owes you a living'. And that idea has been spread mostly by two things I see in the U.S.: the media and your federal education department.
The collectivists in the U.S. have had a firm control of most of these for almost half a century now.
“how utterly stupid of you.” Really? Anyone who disagrees with you is stupid? Or Un-American as you said in your first reply? You argue just like a Democrat—name calling and personal attacks instead of valid, well reasoned arguements. Democrats also build strawmen and attack them as you just did with your “evil Mormon haters” comment.
Sadly way too many so called Conservatives take an attitude of rooting against this country just so they can claim to have been right all along. They would rather stand on the ash heap of America after four more years of Obama, pound their chest, and declare “See? I was right all along. They never should have nominated Romney.” Of course when they themselves cast a vote for the incumbent by not voting for Romney they become Obama’s “running dog lackeys and smiling sycophants”.
Such people are to be pitied. They are intractable and refuse to listen to reason. Arguing with them is a pointless waste of effort. Please show that you are not such a person by ending your senseless diatribe now.
If Zero wins a Second Term, it'll be time for the Grand Old Party to give way to the TEA Party. A coalition of smaller government conservatives and right-leaning libertarians whose #1 job would be to drive a stake through the vampiric heart of bigger Two-party duopoly government.
First rule to observe is that others are entitled to their own vote and the fact they disagree with or criticize Romney does not make them evil. Actually, it's the other way around ~
2.Slackers & Freeloaders
If Mitt doesn’t win the only ones we have to blame are the idiots who stay home and don’t vote.
Uh, I recall quite a few landslides in U.S Presidential Elections, most recently 1996, where Clinton won by 16m votes. Reagan has similar popular vote in ‘84 along with electoral landslide to go with it. It’s ludicrous to say every election since 1791 has been nip and tuck.
I’d say the author might be interested in seeing Romney supporters get into an early shouting match with ABO’s.
I don’t know the author, but I do know dissension in the ranks would injure the effort to defeat Obama.
Surely, my fellow Americans understand that they have only ONE chance to remove a communist cabal from power peacefully. That chance is November 6, 2012 Who can afford to focus on anything else?
No true Patriot will be sitting out the election at home this time. No decent American will sit on the sidelines in some futile 3rd party fantasy or protest. There is simply too much at stake.
We currently have a known enemy of our nation residing in the peoples White House. The people didnt have the good sense to stop it in 2008. The courts didnt have the courage to stop it or rectify the disaster after the 2008 election. Congress hasnt had the backbone to correct the fraud and hold all accountable, even after the 2010 cycle that swept so-called Tea Party candidates into political power. Not even state governments have the honor and courage to block a known fraud from appearing on the ballot again in 2012.
That means that righting the greatest wrong ever perpetrated in American politics is left to the American people alone. They will get ONE CHANCE to end this charade, peacefully, on November 6th. If they fail to end it peacefully, they will be left with only a Second Amendment solution. There is no other solution at that point.
When did communism become an American Dream for some? A long time ago When the American people allowed it.
When did the communist dream become acceptable to the rest of America? Only YOU can answer this one, on November 6th, 2012.
No American can afford to sit this one out or play childish games with fantasy candidates. Removing this criminal communist cabal from power is the ONLY relevant issue of the 2012 election. Only a traitor, a coward or a fool would tell you any different!
Child Sacrificing Feminists
Communists and Fascists
Unhinged Liberal Media
Militant Atheists and God Haters
Sadly, the same group of people who put him there in the first place: My fellow-Catholics, I daresay in name only because they ignore the church’s teachings on the sanctity of life, procreation, and the institution of marriage.
“I often wonder if there is hope left for America.”
In the end? No.
In the Beginning God stacked the deck against Good in this world. He expects us to carry the fight to the enemy in His name none the less until we die or He returns. Where we are in the vast timeline only God knows. So... carry on...
I spend a LOT of time on Facebook. What am I doing? blogging about my dinner or my kids? Nope. Sending out articles that the MSM is ignoring. Close friends think I've gone off the deep end into crazy land because I am obsessive.
They obviously don't understand the implications of what is happening to us as a country...at our very core. They don't get the implications of $100 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities. They don't know what's coming.
They are happy to remain blissfully ignorant...and don't like anyone pulling them back into reality.
If O wins...it will be because MSM didn't come close to doing their job. If he loses...it won't be any thanks to them...but places like FR and FB...where people tell others about what's really going on. I challenge ALL here to get on Facebook...and use it as a tool to counter lies. I recently had my 25 year reunion and had soooo many people come up and say thanks. They would have never known what was really happening if I hadn't been posting about it. Of course...I've ticked off a few of my liberal friends in the process...but I am almost to the point where I cannot associate with anyone that is so blind as to vote for the dem party.
I would say Conservatives, Christians, or legal gun owners who either stay home or vote third party. I heard Glenn Beck say that in 2008 in Ohio if the number of Christians that did not vote had voted for Mc Cain,that would have more than offset the number of votes obama won Ohio by.Factor that in every State that obama won and that would have given Mc Cain the win. But they did not and obama won. Will 2012 have the same result? Will will know by November 7, 2012.
Quite simply, The Republican Party. They did not keep to the “Its the Economy, Stupid” and economic agenda. Fiscal policy should have been the only message. It was the winning strategy.
But, the Republicans did not keep the party in line, and allowed the social conservatives to try and jump on the coattails of a fiscal win to promote their agenda. The gaffes by Akin, Limbaugh and the other idiot who uttered “A child conceived by rape is a gift from God” (paraphrased) took the message away from fiscal policy. And it hurt the overall efforts. It should not even be close.
There you go calling people names again. Are you sure you aren’t really a Democrat? You sure argue like one.
