Vanity: Is Anyone Else Exhausted?

Posted on 08/05/2013 11:58:49 AM PDT by ConservativeMan55

I know we'll never get to a point where we've "won" but is anyone else just feeling DRAINED lately??

We're having to fight tooth and nail every day, calling Senators, calling Congressman, protesting, signing petitions, yelling at Senators and Congressman.

Obama is trying every which way to screw this country.. either through illegal immigration, the health care law, weakening the military, or shoving gays in our faces.

As Rush said.. the point isn't to compromise. It is to DEFEAT them.

But don't despair.. If we can take the Senate in 2014.. we can make Obummer a lame duck President.. and maybe even impeach his sorry ass.

And on top of all this.. we Conservatives have our own lives aside from our political activity.

We have JOBS that require our attention at leaast 40 to 50 hours a week.

Meanwhile Obamabots are getting free food, rent and cell phones, and can devote all of their time and attention to Rent-a-Mob action. At least when Judge Judy is not on.

Exactly my point.

They don’t have to work.

Too bad our politicians are too spineless to defund all entitlement programs.

Just talked to my new Postmistress. She got transferred down here because where she was is going part time. She is full time and only getting 6 hours a day, She said some Post offices are working 8 to 10 , and then 3 to 5 in the afternoon.

Unless you live right on top of the Post office it will cost them money to come to work.

Oh please, who are you trying to kid? Who cares if it was called Obamacare VS RomneyCare?....Obamnesty or Romnesty?....Obamarriage or Romniage ? With republicans like McCain and Rubio, who needs Democrats ? The fix was in just like it will be next time.

The days of fixing America through peaceful elections are long gone. We have difficult decisions of historic import to make very soon.

I know. He’s almost as annoying as regular liberal bowling pins, Lesbionic Sally Cohn, skanky Tamara Holder, and the black guy who shouts a lot on Hannity.

Isn’t Megyn Kelly supposed to be replacing him at 6?

I do despair. I have always been an optimistic person. But I have to say, I am not raising my kids to pursue the traditional "work hard and be honest" formula for happiness and success. The college education route? Owning your own business? Wealth and retirement? Big family?

I am teaching them to be good Christians, then good family leaders, then be greedy about your own family, then get what you can, then help others as you are able. Hide your goodies and figure out how to reconcile that with our Christian Faith....

It's still a work in progress. But I know my kids have to get into the military at some point so they can put Government worker on their resumes.

I really want to believe otherwise. But I fear we have already lost and from this point forward, it's just a numbers game. The laws are different for the working class and ruling class. Common sense was apparently a passing fad. There are more victims these days than there have ever been crimes committed. There are few honorable folks left and there is little pride left or knowledge of our founding charter.

I look forward to someone convincing me there is hope yet and that our best days may yet be ahead of us.... at least for my children's sake.

He deserves a spot beside al not so sharpton. And yes, I do feel drained. A lot. But keep plugging away since this is another of God’s tests to see if we’re strong enough to deal with the mess we’ve been saddled with. The future of freedom is at stake. Looking pretty grim right now and I sure don’t see the Lone Ranger anywhere in sight. Someone needs to be saddling up NOW for the 2016 fiasco. Otherwise, unless the truth about Benghazi actually comes out, the hildebeast will be riding in AF-1 come 1/20/2017.

I pray that it is not just a numbers game at this point.

I hear businessmen.. such as the founder of Sonic or other huge Corporations say they could not have started out under these regulations.

And I wonder.. what all opportunities are we missing because pols like Obummer are holding the business man down?

If that’s the case and she does get elected.. we might as well close up shop here.

America wouldn’t survive two terms of Obama and then Hillary as the next POTUS.

But fortunately we’re not there yet. And there’s still a lot of fight left.

The weariness you feel is triggered by GOP betrayal. Now, in addition to the enemies in front of us, we have to divide our energy and forces to deal with the attack from the rear.

“May It Be”

May it be an evening star
shines down upon you.
May it be when darkness falls
your heart will be true.
You walk a lonely road;
Oh! How far you are from home.

(Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way.
(Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now.

May it be the shadow’s call
will fly away.
May it be you journey on
to light the day.
When the night is overcome
you may rise to find the sun.

(Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way.
(Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now.

A promise lives within you now.

I think you are exactly right.

I counted on Tom Coburn to be on our side. I helped get him elected. Donated, planted 100’s of signs, went to fundraisers.

And now he’s betrayed us in the worst way. In the beginning.. considered one of the most Conservative Senators.

Now.. he’s just a has been.

Same in Arkansas. A Republican is about to take a seat away from a Dem. But I fear the Repub, Tom Cotton.. will become or is just a GOP-e.

You’re smart. It’s obvious the West is collapsing. The USA, UK, France, all the Western nations are dying. What the future holds....who knows. But it won’t be anything like 1950s America.

Pretty much everything he’s done since he took office and before has been impeachable IMO.

They could have thrown him out long ago.

Called my Senator today to ask about Town Halls upcoming. The aide was abrupt and rude.

“He doesn’t have any scheduled”

“Why not?”

“Well it’s too early”

“That’s not normal”

“That’s perfectly normal”

“Well he’s been ignoring the people”

“Oh really” said with a sarcastic tone..

I still hold out hope that we can over come this tyranny and change direction. It won’t happen fast, of course, but I still feel that the house of cards they have built, on a sinking foundation (i.e., scandals and lies) is going to collapse at some point. It has to. And with every new revelation that comes out on all the scandals and lies, more people are awakened, I think, to how despicable this administration is.

I realize many think it’s going to take a forceful action, to get this country back on track. And while I sometimes think that too, I also think about the other side of the coin. If things resort to a violent civil war, who is most prepared to set up shop? What has history taught us? What has Egypt just taught us?

Those who have the biggest foundation, who have been pushing for civil unrest, for discourse and divide between us...they want that to happen, so chaos will ensue and they can tear down what currently exists, and lay out the foundation they’ve been building. They have been ahead of us at every step...ready, waiting....to set up shop for their Socialist, Tyrannical Utopia.

I just think we need to keep doing what we’re doing. The more we speak out and speak up, the more their agenda is stopped. We just have to hang in there. They want us to give up...they want us to feel tired and like nothing is making a difference, but they are wrong. Now is the time we have to continue...because they know their days are numbered. Otherwise, why would they put up such distractions? Why would they continue to push things that divide us? We’re on to them, and they know it. And they are scared.

That’s just my $.02. And besides all that, we have God on our side. And He always wins.

Try this one.
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: In God is our trust.
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
