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!"
Romney on his way out to concede.
Rush has said he’d tell us when it was time to leave.. I wonder what he’ll say tomorrow.
On another note, according to the Daily Caller, the popular vote is currently:
“Never did I realize we could be taken down by one man and in such a short time. And it frightens me to be living in it.”
I am a realist. I researched years ago and came to the conclusion this country was going to collapse. I prep so I can keep my own personal world working and be fairly comfortable if the world, this country, my state, my county, and my town, collapses. In other words, I am responsible for my life and don’t have to depend on others to keep me alive.
Hussein is a pox on this country, but I’m as safe as I can be from whatever evil he plans next. I have to leave Hussein to God since I have no control over this evil man. I can control what I do, but not what he does.
Think of yourself and how you can make your personal world better and safer and leave Hussein to his madness.
Jim, I include you so you won’t stress out over Hussein. Make your world better and safer, too.
In a perfect world Ubama would have gotten beaten to within an inch of his life.
I am sure you were correct about Ohio's polling the whole time, however it is all but insurmountable when you have "Larry Schweikart" voting 23 times as a black man, an old woman and an Iranian cab driver from Cleveland.
THEY had their lawyers ready to act... do the Republicans?
We were head-faked all along by Team Romney and surrogates like Rove and Morris.
They weren’t going into Pa and Wi and Mi because they had OH in the bag. Heck they even failed at FL and VA when their talk was they were running away there.
Silver was right - the MSM was right. It was Obama all along.
We had false hope based on snake oil salesman and our own gullibility
The Republicans currently posses, at least a modicum, of things called "Shame" "Humility" and "Honor".
They know putting the country through endless recounts would LITERALLY tears us apart, so instead they accept it and move on.
While the Democrats would fight for every last vote, fraudulent or not.
This whole election has made me feel like a fool. From the primaries to this. I’m done with politics. I’m disgusted with everything about it. All politicians are scum.
I agree. I notice that Michael Barone did not explain why his prediction was so far off. Just going on like it never happened And he was, along with Rove, on of the gurus
And the fight against liberalism does not end. Tonight was a loss for conservatism. But it was a reminder that America is not a liberal country.
It is a country that is split down the middle. And that gap is growing wider. The only way to rectify the breach is to fight for unification under basic constitutional principles.
We will not heel. We will not stop. The defeat of Barack Obama would have launched the beginning of America coming together. But apparently, liberal America prefers to battle for the soul of the country.
And so we battle.
Democracy works. We still believe in democracy. We still believe in the power of ideas. But the only way to win in the battle of ideas is to fight the bullies, as Andrew did. Democracy is not blood; thats a miracle. But the civil war for the heart and soul of this country is real.
The war begins now.
God bless and protect America and us all. Mercy ...
I am wondering why Indiana is so different this time than in 2008? There was a 11% swing there but only a small bump in other places like Florida where Romney will wind up losing by about a point. What makes Indiana so unique?
Good doesn’t believe in fighting. That’s what gets me... evil doesn’t have to win every time... being nice doesn’t get it in a war. I so dislike the word “compromise”... it means to “surrender”.
That’s why we are the tail instead of the head. We just give in. We don’t march, we don’t get angry, we don’t mob, we don’t do anything but take it.. and the left knows it.
Very wise words Marcella. I agree. Take care.
Welcome to Jimmy Carter's second term!
FWIW the Name Ichabod means "the glory has departed" I've felt that way about America for a while now. We needed better leadership and we collectively voted for more of the same unGodly foolishness.
We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
I also posted this on my Facebook.
"We will continue.
This is not over, not by a long shot. As long as one true American lets his or her voice be known, America still lives no matter who or what party controls its Federal Government."
Well said. You nailed it. This old boy is really hurting right now.
In an odd coincidence I kind of felt the Glory was departing about the same time Michelle Obama was first proud of America.
Unlike RUSH, the overwhelming majority of hard working, conservative Americans are not multimillionaires and do not make 20plus MILLION dollars a year. Multitudes of us are barely making ends meet, if meeting them at all and do not have the financial resources at our disposal, like he does, to leave the country at the drop of a hat and move anywhere in the world we want, to live out the rest of our lives in the safety of multimillion dollar mansion in an exclusive, secure and guarded gated community.
I’m an Indianian by birth... it’s a state that has always been Republican. It doesn’t have those large left cities. It’s made up of farmland/families, basketball, a nice place to live. The schools used to be run by the local communities and those were conservatives...the same people who ran for office and ran the state. Since those years, it just hasn’t strayed as far from those roots as some other states.
Essentially half the country is still with us. Tens of millions of our enemies supporters are useless for anything other than cashing welfare checks. We are in a state of political and social civil war. The country is as divided as it was in 1776 or 1861.
We need to rally our supporters, take a good hard look in the mirror, and do whatever has to be done to save our Republic. Half of a nation can no oppress the other half unless they let them do so.
Plus they’ve been hit hard with unemployment.
Where do we turn ourselves in to the reeducation camp?
The best coverage, by far, was on The Blaze (Glenn Beck’s Network). That’s all I watch. Haven’t watched Fox since Beck started his new network. It’s 10 bucks a month and you can watch everything on demand or live. They’re adding more anchors and will eventually be 24/7. There will be no need for the MSM of any kind.
Roy Moore elected new Alabama Chief Justice
They say the eyes are the windows of the soul. Perhaps he’s afraid that if he looks one of us in the eyes, we might detect that much like the empty chair, there’s no soul there. (just a guess)
“Its harder to lie when looking one in the eye.”
I seem to recall folks saying the same thing about Hillary and that she demanded that her staff not look her in the eyes or something like that. Guess her and Obama have that in common.
Im thinking if you cant beatem, join em. everyone join the DemonRat party, and vote for the most far leftist communist candidates in the primaries. sign up for all the government largesse you can. Give the left what they want, except someone to pay for it all. tip this apple cart over. defeat it from inside. I for one am seriously considering all of the above, including a paper divorce and becoming a single dad to get all I can. my business will go under the table and work for barter, I dont want worthless us dollars anyway (unless its from the treasury). screw the takers, Im one of them now.
I like the way you think, and when the takers are in control the first people we should demand be taken from should be the rich arseholes in the media, every last one of them.
We should eat hollywood and the new york media complexes first!
Valerie Jarrett wants her revenge, vendetta, vendetta on the MsM, eat the MSM first then the limosine liberals next!
Please forward me the AFIRE ping list. I’ll take it over.
True conservative women are a rarity. I am embarrassed for my gender. We should know better.
Like Obama you avoid my quesstion. If you feel so strongly about abortion, how can you live with yourself when your action helped reelect Obama who has said doctors who allow babies from failed abortions to die should not be prosecuted for murder. I guess you are proud of yourself that such babies can be murdered without any consequences.
There will be a temptation to blame fraud but the truth is much worse. Obama apparently won OH by fewer votes than Bush in 04 and once again red areas UNDERPERFORMED. again. Obama got 4 million fewer votes and still won.I think we have to admit this is not a “center right” country or even center left but a full left. The problem is deeper than fraud. We have totally lost the young.
You are right. Rush is correct that the indies are almost always cowardly Ds. He is wrong (as we’re most of us) that this is a “ center right counter.” I think it’s clear now that by a 5-million person margin this is. LEFT WING country, and I choose the term carefully.
I disagree that we are a "Center left" country. Parts of our country are and many parts are not. Here in Kansas we became even more Red, something I did not think was possible.
I will say that, while not a cookie cutter example, the parallels to the Civil War are striking and terrifying.
I believe a new Nullification Crisis (most likely with Ubamacare) will hit during this second term of Ubama, and His inner "Andrew Jackson" of ignoring states rights will be fore front for all to see.
That is what frightens me, is what lengths the takers will go to so they can completely suck dry the producers.
And no offense, but KS is basically irrelevant. How many times did either candidate visit your state?
The nation cannot be saved by making KS redder. It must be saved by somehow regaining control of our big cities and the young.
Well if you can’t win ohio then forget about CA. There is an entrenched block that will always vote dem. It would be extremely difficult if not impossible for a conservative to win some of those states. Too much entrenched socialism and lots of brainwashed people. This would take years of re-education to overcome and liberals control education and the MSM
“Jim, kindly cancel my subscription to Free Republic effective immediately. Also cancel my monthly payment subscription effective immediately. I will not be a part of a site that cant take seriously the enormous problems that face this nation. Its obvious that opinions such as mine are rude when others want to be flippant and self engrossed. So be it.
To my Afire! ping list, I wish you well. Not much has been relevant to the immigration issue lately, so this is a good time to move on. Goodbye, good luck and Godspeed.”
Well ... the emotional tantrums and blame games start. Yeah - blame free republic. That’s the ticket. I don’t know what your beef is with free republic but am glad to see you hit the road. We need warriors not drama queens and cry-babies.
Demographics are destiny
Yep, and anyone who can fog up a hand-held mirror can vote.
We just don’t have the votes, period.
The choice in this election was clear. Romney will wind up with roughly the same vote tally as McCain when all the counting is done, maybe a few more or less.
Obama is going from 69 million votes to probably in the 63 range and still wins pretty handily.
The fired up base may have been true but our base isn’t enough.
” There will be a temptation to blame fraud but the truth is much worse. Obama apparently won OH by fewer votes than Bush in 04 and once again red areas UNDERPERFORMED. again. Obama got 4 million fewer votes and still won.I think we have to admit this is not a center right country or even center left but a full left. The problem is deeper than fraud. We have totally lost the young.”
Now I feel no need to post anything.
I feel the same way - it is very diheartening.
I know now the definition of demoralized. I feel it.
1. ObamaCare is here to stay.
2. Taxes in January will destroy business and personal lives.
3. High unemployment is here to stay.
4. We lose the Supreme Court to the hard left.
5. The media will continue the cover up of this President’s lies, distortions, and incompetence.
6. John Boehner will cave like a cheap suit to whatever this Administration wishes.
Finally, I fear it is the end of American exceptionalism and rugged individualism. Those ideals are what we once embodied while we still fit the framers intentions; not what this nation is becoming.
Yes, I too am very interested in what Rush has to say today.
LS, thank you so much for your valient effort with the data. Unfortunately, due to other weird turnout factors, it didn’t work out for us this time.
I am sorry, I don’t get your complete pessimism though.
As a teacher myself (though at high school), I met lots of angry teens today, though it is Texas.
However, we can win the youth vote back, and as they get older, I see them turning more R. But, we can only do so with something truly different than the stuff we have offered up to now.
They see us as the old people’s party. We must change. Exactly how, I don’t know.
And the same with females and minorities. That is what really lost this for us last night. Even a few points better there and we would have won it.
What we have done up to now has not worked. We need to figure out how to reach them with conservative ideals or it’s over for good.
But, I don’t believe that will happen. Two major parties have always adapted and changed, and we will as well to reflect the modern America.
Trying to run an election like it’s still 1960 and get old white males to vote for us is not enough anymore.
That is why Thomas Jefferson abhorred cities, a vast waste of non-self sufficient people.
Yeah, gotta give him a fist bump for that.
“Well ... the emotional tantrums and blame games start. Yeah - blame free republic. Thats the ticket. I dont know what your beef is with free republic but am glad to see you hit the road. We need warriors not drama queens and cry-babies.”
You obviously haven’t followed all the hard work BCSCO has done over the years here on FR. He IS a warrior, and it gets more than irritating to see Freepers more interested in Dancing with the Stars than the sovereignty of this nation.
Amen, and Amen!
“This is 1000 times worse than Carter..
In my opinion America is over with ..done ..Down the toilet”
I wasn’t referencing Carter, but Clinton. This is *exactly* how I felt in 1996, except 1996 wasn’t even close. I thought “Oh @#$%, the best we can put up is Bob Dole, who talks about himself in the third person. In 2000 we’ll be officially socialist and ready for Al Gore to make gasoline illegal.”
Don’t get me wrong. These next four years are going to suck. We’re going to be taxed, our rights will be under assault, and all sorts of hell will either erupt or fester overseas. The D.C. Pubbies are already falling over themselves to surrender. O may even get a chance to screw up the Supreme Court. And then the next Dim candidate will probably be Hillary.
But that really describes 1992-2000, too. Then we had the ATF burning people in their homes and shooting people. Since you mentioned Carter, that sucked, too; huge inflation, unemployment, odd-even gas lines, not to mention caving to the Soviets and ineffective hand-wringing before Iranian “militants.” But we got past it and by ‘90 the USSR was no more.
The really screwy thing about yesterday is that our guys just didn’t show up again. Romney got fewer votes than McLame. Who are they waiting for before they bother voting? Do we have the courage to nominate someone worth voting for? Do the state parties have the courage to lock the primaries to registered Republicans only so the Dims can’t choose our candidate for us? We’ll see.
Obama’s eyes have always looked ‘cold’ to me, and I agree about Hillary. She also moves her eyes all around when talking, never seems to look directly at people.
