Ok so who’s up for standing by doing nothing while the GOP brainiacs get together on Thursday to reelect the same exact people who are responsible for this?

Oh joy and how long before David Frum says ‘See we should just accept abortion, banning guns, hating religion it would win us more votes yay’.

My sister cried when Obama won and she’s a democrat. Both my democrat sisters backed McCain. I’ve cried myself and kicked back a few. But I weep for my country, not myself. Hence, in my moment of sadness, I realize the truth, that what defines a liberal is the belief only in what he wants and not in something greater than himself.

Will do. But I think it's important to recognize, that Rush, Sean, Laura, Levin, NRO-- it's not enough.

I hate to say it but they couldn't even stop John McCain in the primaries. And we found out today that Conservative Alternative Media has come far-- but we are no match for the MSM + all their friends on the internet.

Those guys flat out kicked our butts. We are outmanned and (I hate to say this) outgunned. We need to think outside the box. That is something I'm afraid the GOP in DC are not capable of.

definition of insanity: keep doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

How many elections must we lose before we stop pushing others to accept our views on abortion? Do we really want government involved in our lives supervising abortion bans?

What ever happened to smaller government and less intrusion in our private lives?

You are absolutley right. If I want to off my husband then the government shouldnt interfere with the pesky laws that I shouldnt kill. s/ Abortion is MURDER. It isnt government interference in YOUR life. It would be government protection of an innocent life (ie the unborn child). Your post made me madder than the stolen election.

Pssst. It wasn't just ACORN

ACORN I can live with.

It's the millions of my fellow Americans that sold out their country cheaply by accepting promises by an empty suit of getting a check from Uncle Sam.

That's what got me steamed.

The road to serfdom is paved with cheap promises and golden chains made from the neighbor's money.

"For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeteers, musicians and strange animals from conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conquerors rode in a trimphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children robed in white stood with him in the chariot or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting.” - General George S. Patton Jr.

"CPAC 2008 was the most significant conference and gathering of Republicans in 25 years. And, it was not because of the published agenda or the speakers. It was my 13th time to attend." - FlA

Nov. 4, 2008 ......."The groundwork for the "New GOP" started at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February 2008. There is much going on behind the scenes." - FlA

If he got then there must not be enough of them to counterbalance the flood of Mexican and Central America "immigrant". The ones that's suppose to join his campaign cuz he's been so good to them/sar.

Face it McCain, you got abandoned like a campaign bus on fire by "immigrants" who got a better deal from the Liberals.

Always has...Always will.

"they couldn't even stop John McCain in the primaries"

Cross-voting (i.e. "reaching across the aisle", to quote McCain) in the primaries by the ACORN liberals is what go McCain into the race, he was coming in last among Conservatives...Rush, Laura, et al couldn't stop that no matter how hard they tried.

But, even though obama has been lifted up the pole, doesn't mean he'll be able to walk the wire...

Preamble to the U.S. Constitution

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Posterity covers the unborn.

Declaration of Independence

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Do I really need to explain “life” to you?

Obama managed to get 500,000 more votes than Kerry did in Florida, and Senator McCain received about the same as President Bush in 2004, 3.9 million.

Obama also received far more votes than we have seen in any of the gubernatorial races, actually receiving almost twice as many votes as the 2006 Democrat gubernatorial candidate, and 80% of the sum of the two candidates in 2006.

The question has to be where did Obama find these voters? The county numbers should make for interesting reading.

I had a bad feeling yesterday morning. I own a construction company in Monroe County, Fl. The Florida Keys. I have 14 employees currently. I knew one employee, a guy that has a live in relationship with a female doctor, was an Obama fan, he and his live in partner, they are both Jewish. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, a few other employees were now sporting Obama bumper stickers. Yesterday, on the job site, everyone was in a grand mood. They had all voted by 7:30 AM, every last one of them for Obama....unanimous.
I’m feeling slightly ill about this whole thing this morning. Wonder how many will decide they deserve the day off today. While I am considered by them to be an extremely good guy to work for, I’ve got a feeling things are going to go south with my employee/employer relationship.
I’ve got thirty years in this business here. I talk regularly to dozens of other guys that are in business for themselves in some facet of the construction industry. Not a one of them voted Obama and there is a pervasive fear and gloom over the now realized prospect of an Obama presidency. Almost all of us in my circle of business associates/contacts are in my age group, I’m 55 and the majority of us are early 50’s-mid 60’s ages.
Without exception, all are thinking along the same lines....no intention for new hiring...no intention for new capital expenditures in equipment....It’s a hunker down, wait and see, let’s give it 6 months or a year mentality.
My compatriots in business here.......most of us have been in business for the same number of years as I.....30 years for me, 20-35 years for most everyone I know. We’ve been survivors, we’ve lived and worked through good and bad economic times. We are the ones that have always come out stronger on the other side of downturns.we have watched less qualified, marginal people and businesses go by the wayside.
But frankly.....we are worried......we don’t know that we will survive what is coming down the road now.
God help us all.

This is pretty twisted thinking. I wasn’t aware laws aginst killing could be viewed as gov’t intrusion in our lives.

I read on one thread here on FR, a post by a Freeper who owns a business, that they told their employees that any increase in taxes would require layoffs.

Set them straight from the get-go.

Honestly, last spring, I sat around the table with my work colleagues when Bear Stearns went under and stated that my gut told me that we were headed for something that had not been seen in our life time.

Tonight's election has only exacerbated that gut feeling.

There is a principle called "reaping and sowing" straight out of the scriptures.

I think that a lot of the smug 0bamamanics are entitled to that lesson in life.

Take care of your own first and good luck.

Spktr,

The open primary system in NH having all the M@$$holes come across the state line and vote for him, was more of a culprit IMHO. It is time for the GOP to have it's Vince Lombardi moment, "Gentlemen this is a football"......

Uh, this was first Prez loss since 1996. Clinton only got in in 1992 cause of Perot... It was the economy. Once it got so scary bad, there was little hope. The amazing thing is how close it was. Obama by all rights, considering we are on a financial precipice, should have had a landslide. That is small comfort, but some.

“Rush screwed up by not actually throwing his weight behind one of the candidates during the primaries - his “neutrality” netted us McCain, IMHO.”

Funny, said the same thing about Michael Savage.

I got a better one. Where were the PUMA’s.

If you ask me, we sat back and said that Hillary’s voters would turn on Obama. In the end, they voted Democrat BECAUSE THEY ARE DEMOCRATS.

It was a Democrat Operation Chaos. Gotta love Hilldog.

Blacks are 16% of the population of Florida and up until this election only about half of them voted. The Obama campaign was here in Florida for months finding 600,000 of these people, registering them and making arrangements to get them to the polls. Those are the new voters. When the media said last night that McCain was underperforming in Hillsborough, Orange and Duval, that’s why. Those are swing counties that usually go red, but have large black populations.

I’m in that crucial I-4 corridor, the swing part of Florida that swung for Obama last night, the part of Florida that McCain HAD to win to win the state. I tried to tell people that Obama was registering blacks left and right and that the ground game here looked NOTHING like 2004, but was shouted down by Freepers in others states who were sure they knew more than I about what was going on in my state.

At least Amendment 2 (Defense of Marriage) passed. I collected signatures for it and sweated as it survived a court challenge. We’ll see how long it holds before a liberal Supreme Court shuts it down.

Because the unborn cannot speak for or defend themselves. If we can so dismissively murder our progeny, why have any criminal law? ...

Thanks for your effort on Amendment 2. It was the one shining light.

I’m shocked that Jacksonville (Duval Co.) was split 50/49 McCain. Like a reverse Bradley effect. I’m now looking around me wondering who voted for Obama but wouldn’t tell anybody. Bush won here in 2004 by 16%. I’m utterly sick.

Amendments in FL have to get 60% of the vote to pass. Amendment 2 got 62%. That means that a lot of Obama voters voted for Defense of Marriage. This is still a center-right country ideologically, even if scared people who are hurting economically (and FL has been very hard hit by the housing mess) do stupid things at the top of the ticket.

Laura Ingraham is RINO. She jumped on th FOX RINO bandwagon.

Charlie Crist is also a RINO who let felons vote and did not take ACORN seriously.

<<<< You f@cking communist, treasonous pieces of sh!t.
200 years ago, you bastards would all be covered in boiling tar and chicken feathers for what you have done.>>>

Sadly it’s 200 years later ... we all saw how the nuts from ACORN broght the dead back to life to vote, how handicapped people’s votes were taken from them. It was all over the place.

Now 200,000 votes makes the difference! Why are there no investigations into this stuff?

Florida Constitutional Same-Sex Marriage Ban along with Arizona & California
Official Site: Vote Yes for 2 | FR Key Keywords: Florida Gay Marriage Ban | Homosexual Agenda | California: Prop 8 - Proposition 8
11.06.08: States Same-Sex Marriage Detailed Status & History
      U.S. Map: States Same-Sex Marriage Status
      NCSL: Same Sex Marriage, Civil Unions and Domestic Partnerships
      19 States constitutionally ban same-sex marriage and other kinds of same-sex unions
      - 9 States constitutionally ban same-sex marriage
11.05.08: Floridians approve Constitutional Ban on Same-Sex Marriage - 62% Yes to 38% No
      All but 8 of Florida's 67 counties voted to pass Amendment 2 by more than the required 60%. Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward didn't give the amendment the 60% it needed to pass. Neither did voters in Alachua County, home to the University of Florida. Panhandle counties supported the amendment by margins of 70% and 80% or more. Only Monroe County, which includes the Florida Keys, gave the amendment less than 50%. Floridians voted higher constitutional ban approval than in other states, with 62% approving the measure. In Arizona and California, voters passed bans 56% and 52% respectively. Unlike Florida, both states required only a majority for passage. Amendment 2 was passed due to a huge October “Vote Yes” push among conservative Republicans and Florida GOP PAC’s, along with many marriage conservative African-American and Cuban/SA Latino-American Floridians’ turnout for Obama for President. Thanks to everyone that voted Yes. – FlA, SFARI
10.20.08: For this Florida constitutional amendment to pass it must have a minimum of 60% approval. We need a very strong push by all Floridian conservatives to pass Amendment 2. This issue is a Democrats-Soros Shadow Party high priority defeat inititive. They are spreading substantial misinformation in the media to defeat it. Nationally noted financial guru (and gay) Suze Orman has also been spreading the same pack of lies about Amendment 2 in the National media. - FlA

11.19.08: California Supreme Court to hear legal challenges against Prop. 8, that was passed by the voters. (But SC refused to stop voter approved Constitutional ban)
