Iím ashamed of my country!
Vanity | 7 November 2012 | areukiddingme1

Posted on 11/07/2012 5:38:16 AM PST by areukiddingme1

For the first time in my adult life I am ashamed of my country – Last night on display for the entire world to see, half of the nation elected the “king of the takers.”

Makers, be on notice!

So what does this mean going forward for America? No one can argue that it does not mean; 1) Higher taxes, 2) Increased debt, 3) Attacks on the 2nd amendment and 4) Weaker US power projection around the world.

The grown-ups simply didn’t outnumber the children last night and the children threw a temper tantrum and got their way – Let’s see how bad it is when it is time for them to pay taxes.

For those of us still alive in 20 years, we must remind these spoiled children that they voted for “redistribution of wealth” and when they are only seeing 50% of their take home pay, they will only have themselves to blame.

I am so thoroughly disgusted with this country this morning.

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” ~ Unknown

“A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Last night defined who I’ll be going forward. My vote was outnumbered by an ill-informed voter. I shall NEVER again waste my time and vote. We are outnumbered...we have made the ‘turn’ and there is no going back. Minorities are breeding at an alarming rate...we can never outnumber the left. I am officially tuning out...no pride in America...it’s gone.

Don't be so critical of America. It is not Her fault it is our fault..

I remember.

The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.

They hijacked the now defunct Democratic Party in the 1970s. The fault is ours. Abe will explain from "the other side."

You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

You sound like Manchelle now.

I realize you’re disappointed, but you don’t have to be ashamed of our country.

And let’s stop calling everyone who get government assistance “takers”. What’s the GOP know about these people who live in the inner cities and our barrios? Virtually nothing. How many Romney campaign offices were there? Virtually none. What’s the Republican platform for them? Nada.

A lot of people went to the polls in 2008 and did not vote for a presidential candidate, 5.7 million actually (obama beat mccain by 7.4 million). I wonder how many people did the same this year? How is the GOP reaching out to Democratic voters and these voters who have given up? It’s not.

Be ashamed of the GOP but not our country. The GOP gave up on a changing America, settling instead on a stale repeat of a tired old platform.

I’m proud of my country. Proud that it changing, that a new generation and demographic is rising up and being heard. I just wish my party would listen, because I don’t like giving it all to the Dems.

My son had dreams of becoming a Navy Seal, not that he talked much about it, as he is the strong, silent type as much as one can be at almost 16.

This morning I told him to forget about that path as long as 0bama is CinC. I refuse to sacrifice him for that bastard! 0bama does not love this country and I guess half the people don’t love America either. No way, no how the armed forces. To defend, what?!

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

Translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010

Since Romney received fewer votes than the much hated McCain,especially in key states, then I can only conclude that it was conservatives and republicans that re-elected Obama by sitting it out.

America didn't do it. We did it to ourselves.

I was filling up my tank last night, and some 20-something looking kid came up to me and said he lost his wallet, could I give him some money. I asked him who he voted for. He looked puzzled, but said Obama. I told him wrong answer, and to go bother someone else.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

This morning I realized for the first time that this America is not the one I grew up in and loved. Women voted obama because of contraceptives and choice to kill their babies, unions voted because of their precious auto bail out, blacks voted because of the obvious, everyone voted selvishly and ignorantly not for what was good for America as a whole. Liberals play the fools like a fiddle. A decent, educated, capable, moral man was defeated by buffoons last night and we ALL will have to suffer for their stupidity. He has already set up Congress to blame last night in his victory speech when he said he would work across the isle. Now, every time Congress objects he has them to blame. What kind of morons could have put this loser back in office. I am astounded. But, of course, that is my venting and my opinion, of course.

sadly, this president and his administration have shown they will not support the American military either at home (the Ft Hood “workplace violence”) or abroad (Benghazi).

And, at the other end of the spectrum, the retirees and vets who will quickly see massive changes to their healthcare benefits (first), then their retirement/benefit checks (consecutively w/ the first), and then fewer commissaries, BXs, etc. as the military continues to shrink to a trickle of strength. Add to that the weakening of the military thru the social policies being enforced, and it is not an optimistic future.

Our banker/enemy,China and our “frenemy”, Russia, along with our real enemies (radical Islamists and Iran) are circling like vultures. Don’t expect them to stay at bay either—the country just re-elected the president most likely to help China/Russia/the others succeed. (Along with the folks who voted for O again!)

We are a nation gone under, and Lady Liberty is crying her heart out...

You are a troll. I suppose you think we should try to compete with the demonrats to see who can promise the most free sh*t? So our party can 'win'?

That article is correct if and only if Obama is not what I fear he could be, what I've been calling the "Islamic Candidate."

Look at his total support of the Muslim Brotherhood as well as his (and Hillary's) commitment to destruction of our 2nd Amendment -- and for that matter, all of the Bill of Rights -- to disarm us.

That Amendment was based on the Swiss model, ensuring our ability to contribute heavily toward the defense of this country. But what will happen once the Muslim Brotherhood has the entire Middle East united in their utmost goal of a world-wide Islamic caliphate?

Someone please tell me I'm wrong.

“For the first time in my adult life I am ashamed of my country” Last night 50.3% of American voted to turn their backs on the unemployed and underemployed. Last night 50.3% of Americans voted to bury their own children and grandchildren in debt. The selfish ‘Me Generation’ won last night.

Oh, I probably haven’t crushed his dream, because he was brought up with the principles of the guys that defended our ambassador in Libya.

He is a patriot.

“Go Tribe”?

I should want to belong to a party that panders to the shifting “tribes” that inhabit the land, rather than the self-evident truths on which this nation was founded?

The “new generation and demographic” are not interested in the principles on which this country was founded. We were a nation founded on such principles, and our freedoms and strength derived from them.

The motley collection of tribes will never even know what they’ve lost. I’m old enough and wise enough know what we’ve lost, and why. I’m proud and fortunate to have been a part of its greatness, even in the twilite of its history. I lived in the shining city on the hill. It’s now been overrun by barbarians, who - not understanding its true value - are tearing it down for mere loot and plunder. It will never come again.

Family. Boy.

My aunt and her dying of cancer husband are libs. I don’t know if my mom will want to talk to her now.

My lovely cousin, is tweeting PROBAMA bullshite.

What can you do? Some people don’t get it. That’s what happens when the other side controls the media and the schools. And when good men marry liberal women and let them raise the kids. My tweeting cousin’s pa is our side. His wife is not.

Don’t let them take your family. Just agree not to discuss politics.

And if you have kids, you gotta TCOB and make SURE they know what is up. If they say something liberal, spank them hard. And I say that as someone who is strongly against spanking.

I don’t know why I found that statement funny, but I had to laugh at this. It’s true that we really need to work hard to teach our children conservative values (or, how else will they carry these forward?). If I wasn’t laughing at your statement, I’d definitely be crying.

My biggest disappointment today is that Romney would have been a good president. Far better than what we have. Imminently qualified, decent and smart economically.

My other huge disappointment is the full realization of what the majority of voters in this country think and want.

Yes he would have. My biggest failure of judgment was in thinking that the American public would see the value of having somebody in charge who was smart economically, organized, high-functioning and a thoroughly decent person.

Instead they chose a moron clown whose only talents are handouts to his followers and looking smug. And his designated replacement is a senile old loser who doesn’t even know where he is.

And, remember that we have four more years of Obama packing the federal courts with liberals.

Pray more than ever for the continuing service and good health of Supreme Court justices such as Scalia and Thomas and Alito. The Supreme Court could tip with Obama having another four years to fill any vacancies there too.

Yeah. A few times I told left-leaning people that’s why I was voting for Romney. They’d always come back with something like “oh he is for the rich” or if a woman “he wants to mess with my uterus”.

I guess we just didn’t figure there were 60 plus million people that stupid.

“My lovely cousin, is tweeting PROBAMA bullshite. What can you do?”

Sometimes, it’s best to break bones with a soft tongue. It took me ten years to nudge my father into conservatism. And I think of myself as a persuasive guy.

My personal belief.

Step One: Be entertaining, pleasant to listen to.

Step Two: Undermine their ‘information’ source.

The rest usually falls in place.
