Hey, maybe you could build a couple of bunk houses for those of us who wish to escape the democRATs. Charge rent.

Well, rent is pretty cheap in Texas.....for now.

I know just how your wife feels. the night of the election I felt so sick at my stomach it was like a member of my family had died. It felt like the death of our beloved country. The helplessness was sickening.

... sigh ... Don't I know it.

I didn't know what to think, and went into a state of shock and numbness over the election results. But I didn't have a lot of time to wallow in my own disappointment, because I had a whole family to console. I had to stay tough for them, and give them the correct sense of resolve and fortitude to fight on.

I tell you, that was tough, because I felt just like they did that night.

Thing is, though, I've got a certain attitude that never admits defeat, and that affects the attitudes of my wife and kids. It didn't take but a couple of days before they were back to having their jaws set firmly in resistance to the Obamanation.

And that's just how we're gonna stay.

While I generally agree, I don’t think nearly enough people have felt true pain yet. The majority will keep making excuses for the reality we live in and keep supporting the very people who cave in to the Lib crap.

Not to dish out an overly large dish of tough love here, Normy, but maybe you ought to spend more time with red state families with young children and small Mom & Pop businesses. We've felt pain like you would not f***ing believe these last six years.

I told you my wife and kids cried the night Obama 'won' the election, and I'm not kidding. I had a houseful of weeping people to handle.

You want to talk about pain? Talk to my wife and kids. I'll tell you what - I know a ton of families that have been hit just as hard by the trickle down effects of our left-wing government, as my own. And a lot of them have been living a whole lot better than mine over the last six years.

Maybe I'm just pissed, and talking from my own small perspective, but I think the majority of people in this country feel quite a bit like I do. No, they didn't all come out to the polls to rid themselves of the Obamanation, but what the f**k kind of alternative did the malignant GOP offer them?

Man, I need to quit talking before I get in hot water with the management or Homeland Security.

You misunderstood me Windy. I know many have indeed. Same in this neck of the woods. My point that ‘the majority’ have yet to do so.

As proof I submit that if they had, we would not had a lib running as a GOP candidate and most definitely not be going 4 more with Obama as Prez.

Hey, Texas don't care what kind of firearms you own! Gotta love it.

Normy, I don't blame the final 'choice' of our nominee on the good people of this country. I blame it on the GOP-e, who pulled every possible string, and provided every possible means of support to their preferred candidate's success.

The MSM helped by throwing every bit of dirt they could dig up, on the more conservative candidates, thereby softening support (and campaign dollars) for them. It was a 'team' effort to push Romney to the top, and the axis was victorious in eliminating all contenders from his path to ultimate defeat.

Sure, there are millions in this country who wholeheartedly worked (and cheated) to ensure the Marxist's re-election, but I don't believe for a moment that they outnumber the better number of Americans. We were simply out-snookered. Again.

I've now become convinced that we can't win another election, because the left has seized control over every single lever of control over our electoral process. At least as far as national politics is concerned.

So how the hell do we fight that? I posit that there's no way to fight it, except with gunpowder and lead, or secession.

I don’t disagree.

Were I to offer a suggestion I’d say to split from the GOP first. Most Dems, former dems, indys and youth refuse to get over the mental association of “Republican”. And considering what the GOP now is, I don’t totally blame the,...though for different reasons than they have been programmed to believe.

Libs can only retain their power with enough public support. They can try going full dictator but that triggers a non PC response in a chunk of their ‘marginal’ supporters and most of us. Plus I can’t see most of the military supporting them in that extreme scenario. Flag officers sure, but not grunts.

And if we cannot convince enough of our own people to wake the F up to do it (flee the GOP and reorg), then there is my second suggestion.

We all “sit back and watch the world burn”. Because if the above fails, then it’s obvious that if people can’t remove their heads from their dark places long enough to peacefully resist communism, they sure as hell don’t have what it takes to do it in any more forceful way.

I don’t like it. You don’t like it. But I do not logically see any other alternatives. People thinking the GOP can be anything but what it is are willfully ignorant at best. It will not be changed, saved or altered in any direction but further Left.

We can try going around them with a new party or just accept that we are done. Because it will be demonstrated beyond arguement that not enough people either feel the pain, or care about the pain to change their circumstance.

And I believe in my heart that this is the case.

I think Teddy R. should not be in that picture. The more I read about him, the more I think he was the first RINO.

When it comes right down to it, I've got serious disagreements with every one of those men, including Reagan, but what are we gonna do? We're all imperfect humans.
