ELECTION DAY November 6, 2012 ***LIVE THREAD I***
FREE REPUBLIC!!! | 11-6-12 | Free Republic

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!"

Obama is in the process of doing a MASSIVE phone bank.

I created an account on the Barrack Obama website 5 years ago. One of the things you have to do when you create an account is to give them your cell phone number… Anyways, I got a text from 62262 saying "Will you make one call for President Obama? Reply CALL and we’ll send you the name & phone number of one voter in a key state who needs to hear from you." Every time I text CALL I get a text with a person's first name, the swing state they are in, their cell phone number and message thanking me for helping and to call them and ask them to vote on Tuesday and if I want to make another call then text CALL. Is Romney doing this because he should??? Basically anyone who has an account on Barrack Obama including foreigners are being asked to do phone banking for Obama in swing states.

FOX showing Black Pampers are back at polling station in Philly.

The black panthers better have bigger bats, HEE HEE HEE:

Call them “Seal Team November 6.” Special operations veterans, including former Navy Seals, Delta Force will be called back into action on Election Day to make certain there’s no voter intimidation at the polls.

Philadelphia is a prime target.

Former Navy Captain Benjamin Brink is leading the operation. “The nation saw the video of members of the Black Panthers in Philadelphia intimidating people trying to vote in 2008,” Brink told me when I interviewed him during my radio show on IQ 106.9. “We are going to try and make certain that nothing like that happens this year.”

Brink claims to have over a hundred former Army Rangers, Navy Seal, Delta Force, Green Berets and others who have volunteered for duty. The idea of Navy Seals and Black Panthers getting into it at a Philly polling site gives a whole new incentive for casting a ballot. “Our guys aren’t easily intimidated,” adds Brink

Over here in York County I arrived at about 10 after 7 and lined up.

I voted number 54 this time. Two years ago in the 2010 midterms I voted number 7.

It was a longer line but not as long and sustained as in 2008. By the time I left the line was shorter than it was when I left the polling place four years ago.

I would have been worried if the line was longer like 2008 but just maybe the line was the right size this time.

It was a tough vote for me but it was for Romney for president.

Tom Smith was a much easier vote for Senate.

We shall see how it turns out tonight.

This could be the greatest election day for the good people of the USA since 1994 (2010 was good too, but ‘94 was better).

Heading to the polls shortly, where — unless the puupetmasters have “calibrated” the machine to alter, negate or ignore my vote — I get to vote to unseat the following incumbents:

1. A ultra-long term corrupt Rat bastard state legislator,

2. A blithering idiot Rat bastard U.S. Senator,

3. A slimy liberal Rat bastard Congressman,

4. Best of all, I get to vote to attach some duck feathers — LAME DUCK feathers — to that empty monkey suit of a pResident!

Dave Wasserman Tweet (Cook Political Report)

OHIO EARLY VOTE: More troubling #s for Obama than in VA. Turnout down 4.1% vs. ‘08 in Kerry/Obama counties, UP 14.4% in Bush/McCain counties

I live in the City of Richmond. It took me about an hour to vote, but the makeup of the line was much different than in 2008. First, the line overall was shorter. Second, there were more older white voters. African-Americans made up a good chunk of the line, but demographically, that is fairly in line with the precinct. But overall, there were more older white voters and fewer younger voters than in 2008.

By the time I left, the line had dwindled down. If Obama cannot run up the vote tally in the City of Richmond, he is toast.

LOTS of Twitter anecdotals about HUGE turnouts in the Ohio suburbs.

Now lets see how the Dems respond to this. I’m leaving for Ohio now, I’ll try to post from the iPhone later.

GOOD LUCK to AMERICA, folks!

Good news, I voted first thing at 7am in Exeter, NH. Voter ID was REQUIRED! The parking lot was already completely packed when I arrived, exceptional turnout... very long lines to vote for the hour and a half I was there... steady stream of voters, then it trailed off as many voted before going to work. I have a feeling there is going to be a huge voter turnout here in NH. I will be going back to hold signs again at noon and beyond.

Exeter is a very liberal community but there were a lot of people supporting Romney, Ryan, Ovid, Guinta and the other Republican candidates. I talked to a UNH student holding RR signs next to me and he said there is very little support or enthusiasm for Obama on the UNH campus. He told me that most of the students "are not interested in supporting him this time around." Or "they are not voting because they just do not care." On the other hand he said the Republicans on campus are very active, enthusiastic and fired up. So we shall see if there is a lot less Obama mania student support this time around.

I live in NJ in a retirement community (Central NJ), I just voted and while doing so asked the poll worker how the turnout was. She said it was higher then 2010 by a good bit and we all know what happened that year. Keep in mind that older folks who comprise the population of the community (all 55 or over) make this community of 2000+ people decidedly Republican or at least “red” voters.

Anecdotal to be sure but I’ll take good news where I can find it even though I know NJ isn’t going Romney this year.

I’m in. DH and I voted around 7:45 this morning. Heavy turnout in suburban Atlanta (solid Romney county. The polling station had Six Flags type lines, but it moved smoothly.

Daughter voting later this morning before heading back to UGA - that’s 3 votes for R&R.

***...we stood up 4 Mitt Romney for the past 7 years while so many people fought us and put us down...especially around here****

So I went back and read your posting history;)

You are absolutely correct and I, for one, apologize for being so stubborn and/or recalcitrant.

Mitt Romney has truly earned the support and respect of the skeptical, for his stamina, sense of purpose and decency. His candidacy certainly has been more attractive to a wider electorate that some conservative favorites on FR; i.e. Cain, Perry, Bachman, Gingrich et. al. He had more private sector experience and having successfully dealt with Democrats in Mass. he has political capital.

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 won’t admit it, but I’m pleasantly surprised how many have.

I figured once the Obama attack machine cranked up on Romney that people just couldn’t bring themselves to give Obama the satisfaction of winning.

Regardless of what happens, it’s pretty blindingly obvious now that Romney was the best candidate that could have been put forward - if he doesn’t win, nobody would have won.

Thank you, Sodpoodle! Maybe I was one of the lucky ones who got to meet Mitt and Ann in a small gathering about 8 years ago at one of our local GOP events and I was convinced of his sincerity, decency and true love for this country.

In that small, personal setting he convinced me he was the best man for the job....and I never waivered. I just hope and pray he gets that chance to make it all come true today!

I believe this is first election with voter id requirement. The longer lines would be expected especially at the outset.

Just returned from voting. It was pretty much a fiasco with the guy with the ballots arriving late, only one person checking people in, another hand-copying the information to another sheet, and only eight stations. It took awhile, but once I got to my station (as well as the rest of my family), I filled in that straight Republican bubble; flipped it over and filled in three “against” bubbles on bond issues. Said what I was doing out loud so my husband and kids knew what I was doing as they were voting in the other booths. It was a satisfying moment for us.

I live in Virginia and arrived at the polling precint @ 5:15 and was about 15th in line. By the time I finished voting the line was 150+. It was about 75% black, which isn’t abnormal, or county is 45% black and went for obama last election. By the time my husband arrived a little after 7:00 he said the racial makeup was exact opposite, it was 75% white, most dressed for work. He said line was 250 + easy. Not sure what to make of it all, but just praying my hardest!’

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.

I was originally convinced Newt was the only one with the stones to go toe to toe with the rat bastards.

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.

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.
