Having a hard time caring about anything today.
CS Lewis (I think) said we only truly come to Christ when we are disillusioned - that is, when we see things as they truly are and say, “Lord, I can’t handle this by myself”.
Maybe this will result in some of the sheeple figuring it out.
Please don’t turn into an elitist snob. Then the liberals will have won. The fact is that things aren’t that bad right now, but it will get worse. There is a fiscal cliff that is looming in a few months, and the president inherited his $6T deficit. People need to suffer greatly before true change and revival can happen. The great depression, where people literally starved, was a pivot point which spawned the greatest generation.

I guess my attitude is this... America has a history of ups and downs.
The new message on my phone: “If you voted for Romney, leave a message. If you voted for Obama, drop dead.”
Jesus Christ said forgive them Lord for they know not what they do, but I am not Lord, and I am not in a forgiving mood. If someone push’s this crap at me I am likely to tell them how stupid they are and punch them in their mouth.
Yes I am that pissed.
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.
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.
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 do not believe the exit polls....any of them.
I firmly believe we have just been the victims of the biggest fraud in the history of mankind.
I refuse to believe that the American people were energized to vote for President Obama yesterday.
This election could be a script from a movie, therefore, I am starting to believe it was designed as such.
I think it is far more likely that a plan has been in the works to corrupt this cycle since 2010.
Multiple blue states voted for every Democrat in statewide races by a similar count as what President Obama gained in that state.
States that typically split their statewide vote went 100% Democrat for every statewide race. That can only come from straight party-line voting.
If you wanted to demoralize your opponents, and had the ability, you would arrange the votes in a few safe districts within a few states to overwhelm the other partys safe districts, regardless of turnout.
Then, you would ensure the exit polling contradicted everything your opponents believe, everything they expect and everything they support.
At that point, your opponents would turn on each other, re-think their beliefs and dissolve into irrelevance.
Who would have thought that four years ago, the United States would elect a man who served only 40 months in the US Senate to the White House? Who would have thought his background, his history and his performance would be protected, minimized or dismissed over the course his first term?
If an evil alliance of socialists and islamists really exist in our world, could they have engineered such events?

They got some xplainin' to do!
I was told I didn't know what I was talking about. I tired telling them that in my county alone Republicans went from an over 80% majority to under 60% (not to mention the losses of Repub voters in the surrounding counties.) But no they knew what was going on and Ohio wasn't Staying Blue.
Don't sweat it, being right aint that great.
