Posted on 11/06/2012 3:18:47 AM PST by RKBA Democrat
The polls are open on the east coast!!
From this morning's election day prayer thread:
"Heavenly Father may you forgive this nation and its people for the many awful sins that we have commited against you. We do not deserve the wonderful ways we have been blessed and please forgive us for our indifference,neglect and complacency towards you. May you forgive us who are members of your Church who have neglected our calling and commitment to you to be effective witnesses and stewards of the many blessings you have generously bestowed upon us. Many of us have cried out to you for the past few years as never before and we humbly beseech you to bring an overwhelming, crushing defeat on the forces of darkness in our nation. First we pray that you quicken your Church by your spirit and lead us to unity to stand against the onslaught of darkness upon us. May you smash every crooked deed as evil men and women try to hold onto power and may this be so convincing that everyone knows that your hand is in this. Then we may bring the light of your Gospel to our people who do not know you and to the nations of the world.
May you block and undo every policy and piece of legislation they have passed that is harmful to this nation. May you make every policy they make fail and may you turn the hearts of the multitudes against them. May you thwart every evil deed they try to divide this nation with. May you bring their own mischief upon them ten fold. May you punish those in our government who are lawless traitors and enemies of the Constitution by exposing them and deliver them into our hands for justice. However we also pray that through this that you open their eyes to the truth and in your mercy that you bring these people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ to serve as a witness to many. May you also use this to bring revival across our nation and a restoration of a culture that glorifies You. We also pray for those just leaders in our government who are struggling against the lawless. We pray for your protection and that you embolden them to do what is right to triumph in the election and in the arena of ideas. May you also continue to open the hearts and minds of the American people to the the truth and draw them towards yourself to be renewed in repentance and spiritual rebirth.
And this we humbly ask in Jesus name. AMEN!"
Is 5 enough? Hope so.
I’m in! I’m in a thread that will witness the outing of the worst President in the history of our republic.
Massive turnout in MA. Listening to talk radio here. Callers in most towns are reporting 100-200 deep lines at 6:30 AM.
These are the biggest lines I can remember. I’m 50. A caller said that the last time he saw lines this long was Reagan in ‘80. I voted for Reagan in ‘80, but I don’t remember the lines.
I voted at 6:30 in a town of 7000. There was no line, but the parking lot was full. Our town is 2:1 Republican to Communist.
Decided to come into work first (early) and take off early to hit the polling station this afternoon before most folks leave the office. Will update (assuming FR is alive) with observations at that time.
My wife voted about an hour ago in a Dem heavy city here in N.E. Ohio. She reported it was busy, but I don’t think it was as busy as 2008. I’ll be going later to cancel out one of those Obama votes.
Going to vote!
Get exited folks! Pardon the vanity tagline but:
"Shouldn't Vote" Video (with an FR clip)hits 1,000 views
Our Father Who Art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done,
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil
—Deliver us from Obama, his minions, and his coattails—
Good morning, dear FR Patriots! Will be voting Romney/Ryan here in Louisiana!
God Bless America!
Voted last Sunday.
I’m sitting out this election day.
Off to vote for love of country. God Bless America!!!
A lot has changed in the last four years.
At 7:10AM, 130 waited outside to get in to vote.
Never have seen lines, or traffic, like this
on any election day, ever.
A gentlemen in line passed gas and said it was his impersonation of an Obama speech. Then we was warned against electioneering.
Definitely true. I got to say I don’t like it being tighter on the unskewedpolls site, but I think we win.
Got on line at 7AM when polls opened in SC. Got to vote at 7:35. Never had to wait that long before.
Let’s go, Ohio.
Get it done.
Wife texted me and reported long lines. It feels like 1992 again.
What is the makeup of your area??! Without that info, your report is not very meaningful to the rest of us.
Polling place already had a long line snaking out of the school gym and down the sidewalk .... I got there about 20 minutes after the poll opened. Signs everywhere - had to look for the Obama signs interspersed between the R/R signs & locals running for office. I suspect this area voted for Obama last time (enviro-wienie yuppie types) ... let’s hope they have had a change of mind/heart over the last 4 years. Definitely more folks waiting to vote than the last election.
Voter #4 in my precinct (big dem area outside pittsburgh). Straight GOP ticket. Lots of prayers today. Not sure how this country would survive 4 more years of this marxist!
Good news from Pennsylvania! I live in the suburbs around Pittsburgh, and aa friend who went to vote early told me that these are the longest lines she’s ever seen! I’m sure to head out myself after I finish eating breakfast here, so I’ll grab some pictures when I get there.
Do you mean 1994??
For all of you fellow 0bama supporters out there, this message is JUST for us progressives - so all the other patriots and conservatives, STOP reading right here.
My message to the rest of us 0bamists, DON’T forget to switch to Daylight Savings time.... adjust your clocks and calendar... it IS now Monday, November 5th, 8 AM. Make sure YOU go and vote TOMORROW!
Two couples in front of me; all voting Romney. One of them for the first time as a US citizen.
Our efforts today are akin to what the embattled farmers did at Lexington in 1775. Let's pray our votes are enough...
Ronald Reagan carried the People’s Republic Of MA twice in the 80s.
I don’t expect Williard Mitt Romney to accomplish the same feat even though he’s the home state’s former Governor.
Romney would become the first President since Woodrow Wilson to win without carrying his home state.
My college roommate was from Huntington. There are some great people in that town.
Jeff Kuhner on WRKO in Boston is taking calls on turnout and everywhere there are big lines. One voter said the last time he saw a line that big in his precinct was in 1980.
Our 21-year old son—our youngest— will be voting in his very first Presidential election this morning. I remember the first time I went to vote for President of the United States. What an awesome feeling it was - very special. And, to this day, I always get a wonderful feeling, knowing that it is such a privilege to be able to vote (hopefully, that will continue!!)
Standing By to Stand By, this might be a maybe, hoping FR will hold up strong.
Its a very small community in which I live. The kind you read about in magazines. About 10 miles from town. Quiet and pleasant. Weve got one grocery store, one general store, about twenty-two churches, and a liquor store off a back road at which you dare not be seen. (Yeah, I can tell you how to get there.) Im off to vote in about 10 minutes, and am thanking God that we still have such a sacred right.
I have prayed this morning and I was shocked at the tears that flowed. Often in the past four years Ive prayed for our Country, but I have to admit that this morning was a first for weeping for it. May Our Great God have mercy and grant us His blessing today. May it be such an enormous victory that His work in it cannot be denied.
After voting, Im off for a root canal. (Id only worry about today if it were the other they were working on.)
Stay safe, and
God Bless You All,
To all my fellow FReepers:
When Moses stood overlooking the Red Sea, he was wondering what God was going to do next. (God told me to stretch out this staff over the sea...Thy will be done)
His next words apply to us today:
“Stand still and see the salvation of God”
READ MY LIPS.....we will pass over on dry ground.
EPIC TURNOUT IN OHIO!
55WKRC callers all reporting never before seen epic turnout all throughout Southwestern Ohio.
When my polling station opened the guy in front of me yelled, “Let’s go fire us a president!” Everyone in line cheered.
I can only think that this is good for Romney...
You just made my day.
Was vote #120...modest turnout.
I voted by absentee and will be flying to Florida this morning. Long lines reported in this Republican leaning town in CT. We won’t make a difference in the Presidential Race but perhaps we can win a Senate Seat with Linda McMahon.
Your post reminded me that this is a good time to thank Jim R etal for the work they have done for many years—and continue to do.
The MSM continues to breathlessly lie with every word other than “a” and “the”—here we can come to find out what the h is really going on...
Looking now at intrade.com odds that give Obama a 71% (and climbing) chance of winning. WTH is going on there? Is this liberal manipulation? I believe you can’t wager on this site with U.S. bank account, so it could reflect a European spin.
I voted promptly at 6 AM. I live in the very bluest part of NJ (Hudson County). No lines at all. Literally, I was in and out in three minutes. Four years ago the line at 6 AM was 50-60 people long, so many people anxious to vote for Zero. Enthusiasm on the left, at least here in Blue Jersey, isn't close to what it was last time.
There was a poll recently that Obama leading with 90% of the vote—among English citizens!
Hope they put their money on the line as well! :-)
Where is that “Like” button! LOL!
I live in a small old coal mining town,Clymer Pa and will be voting this morning. I will be voting straight republican...Crossing my fingers for Tom Smith.
FOX showing Black Pampers are back at polling station in Philly.
Just voted outside Pittsburgh. This is the first time I have ever had to stand in line to vote and I have lived here 10 years. If you go early you can usually walk right in and out. Go R/R, Go Tom Smith! FWIW this is my Democrat room mates first year voting here and she is going R/R as well. Feeling good this morning!
Ben Domenech : CNBC poll data show unemployed break 50/45 for Obama. If just someone in household was unemployed, it’s 51-48 for Romney
NYTimes Jim Roberts: Nate Silver’s final forecast: Obama, 314.6 EV; Romney, 223.4. Senate: Dem: 52.5, GOP, 47.
TPM: US President ‘12 (Women): Obama (D) 55.0% Romney (R) 44.0% (Nov. 05 - IBD/TIPP)
