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!"
Apparently the GOP observers have been expelled from polling places in Philly... will the OSCE monitors notice?
Well, one issue is that, with most people working in DC, and the polls closing at 6PM, you have to vote before work. I've only lived here for a year so I don't know what the lines usually are at this polling location. It's a densely populated area with many hirise apartments.
Fortunately I don't work in DC, but about 15 minutes away, so I can just drive back this afternoon and vote an come back to work.
Voted early outside Charlotte. Longest lines I’ve ever seen. I’m going to ride by my polling place today to see how active it is.
Keep the faith!
Ballet questions? Like what kind of shoes are needed if you go "on point"?!?
Man, I'm in the SF Bay Area, and even OUR ballots don't ask "ballet questions"!
But Romney has definitely impressed me since the primaries, and I agree with y'all's estimation that he was the best of the field when all factors were taken into account.
And any eavesdropping flamers can just bite me
Now the trick'll be to keep his feet to a conservative fire and check OUR wallet anytime there's any of that 'reaching across the aisle' hogwash.
I believe Fox news just reported that the GOP has just been granted a court order to immediately return to those precincts.
We cannot expect the Americans to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.

BTW, may I borrow this quote from your flag page today?
Already cast my vote in Early Voting, but I rose early this morning and walked a mile to the polls to stand outside and pray for a half hour.
At 7:00AM, the line was already snaking around the outside of the building.
I prayed every psalm I knew by heart, several passages from Isaiah, The Lord’s Prayer, several hymns, and then just used my own words.
Linda-The-Dog sat at my side on the leash without moving a muscle. She must have known something very important was going on.
I will check in from time to time, but I have to work till 9:00PM tonight.
Hopefully I will get in for the CELEBRATION of a RR Victory before I go to bed.
“I always assumed that about 99% of all the people here ranting they could never vote for Romney would end up doing so - most of them probably wont admit it”
Please. If I wanted condescension - I’d be going to Democrat Underground. Anyways, going to be heading out here in a bit to go vote for Virgil Goode.
“he doesnt win, nobody would have won.”
“Romney was the best candidate”
Also not true. Romney actually has negative coattails - people are more willing to support the republicans downballot than him. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Republicans increase their congressional representation, win the Senate and Romney loses.
“Theyll be trying to bus them from Illinois into Wisconsin instead of Indiana this year.
They are already here and have been for about two weeks. Busloads of vans with Illinois plates and Obama signs on them.
I LOVE that song!
I LOVE South Pacific...Great Show.
Oh heroic Goode-vote-waster, please enlighten me what Republican candidate would have done better in your hallucinatory universe?
Went to vote at the West Chester Library in Boehner’s district (across from the site of the Friday night Romney rally)at 6:30am. Long lines in a very Republican district, (Boehner is running unopposed this year) are a good sign.
Did not vote, because I had to be at work at 7. Will vote right after work, before the evening rush.
I’d rather complain about Romney, than suffer under Obama.
“....of all the people here ranting they could never vote for Romney would end up doing so - most of them probably wont admit it, but Im pleasantly surprised how many have....”
I’m one of those folks. When Romney started out, I vowed to never vote for Mittens. I have to eat those words today because I did. Not because I fully agreed with his past performance, but because it was the right thing to do for our country. I think the “game changer” point for me was when he picked Paul Ryan for his VP, and then his performance in the first debate really cinched it. On the other side of the coin, the GOP could have run a south Texas Havilina hog against odongo and I probably would have voted for the hog.
