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!"
I just voted for VIRGIL GOODE.
Whatever happens, at least I won’t be ashamed of myself, and can still call myself conservative.
I live in California and won’t vote until I get home from work this evening... but I have an interesting observation...
At work, there is a extraordinary amount of RED clothing being worn today. This was not planned in any way, but I’m seeing many men wearing red shirts and ladies wearing red blouses.
I was standing in my closet this morning trying to figure out what to wear, when I decided, “screw it, I’m wearing RED” to support the GOP. Apparently, many others had the same thought.
1992 when the bad economy caused a sitting President to be voted out.
I am SO mad!!! My son told me that he doesn’t get to vote today because “They never sent my voter package”. He is in the Air Force, stationed in Oklahoma, and has been denied his voice in the election! That is WRONG!!
Voted at 7:30 am in a “less democrat, more conservative area in MN”—yes, there are some of those). The line was not terribly long, and I waited about 20 minutes to vote. Count three votes for Romney—mine, my husband’s, and my daughter’s!
Just spent two hours (!) in line in deep-blue NOVA (Fairfax Co.) The line was easily four times longer than 2008. That’s either very, very good or very, very bad.
If those people were voting for change, then Romney will win 45 states today. If Obama got that many more people to come out for him than in 2008, then today’s result will be the least of our worries....
Any thoughts on WTF is up with the huge turnout in NOVA?
I thought there was some sort of online solution for the military in that situation?
Where was the polling place?
Oh look another Nate Silver tweet posted. We’re so lucky.
Florida isn’t going to be close. Romney all the way.
Just voted in Idaho. Local radio says expecting 78% turnout. People are pumped up to CHANGE America. Others are talking about how they’ve heard about the rioting if Obama loses, knowing it probably won’t reach us in the back woods, but a few said they’re ready with a new box of shells! Such a buzz in the air!
Huntington precinct, Fairfax County.
Think about it. Do you believe that Obama has more support now than he did in 08? The huge crowd is not out there to support his failed presidency. I look at your report as very very good news!
I voted for the love of my country and the future of our children!
If you haven't voted yet, please vote. If you have already voted, please continue to pray.
Over the past days and weeks, these songs have comforted me:
May God Bless America!!!
I'll fess up. I will be voting for Mitt on my way home today. He was not my first, second or even third choice. But I did like his performance in the debate (first time I really took a good look at him). And...
Bad box. Big Dem box. McDonnell lost by almost 20 points there in a blowout year. Not surprising. They are going to run it up in Alexandria and Arlington like they always do.
My daughter is very excited about the election, she picked out her outfit to wear today, and asked to stay up to watch the results ( she’s 11) :-)
Yes but IIRC his former Floriduh prediction was an Obama win by over 2 points.
Bottom Line Nate is starting to hedge his bets.
....just woke up from my voting day nap, *smiles*....woke up to Bill Hemmer jumping around like a chip monk on crack, yelling about 2008 numbers...?????....enuff of that..
NWNJ....was out at 5:30 this AM getting coffee and a snack...poll opened at 6am, voting was interesting, had a pretty good crowd 120 or so, considering the cool weather and hour...automatic Odungo voters 2.
I’m in Texas. Trust me I’m not costing Team Romney anything.
Downballot is another matter as I’m in Dogget’s district. Obamabot neighbours have been asking me for a ride but I’m picking anybody up today. ;)
NOW that is something I want!!!!!!
Voted this morning in Sussex County, DE—four votes for Romney/Ryan and down ballot Republicans from this household. Sussex is a red county in DE.
Son and daughter-in-law Sandy ravaged Ocean County, NJ will add two more.
Ocean is a red NJ county.
Amen! I prayed over the machines, and our nations entire voting process, when I voted - straight ticket Republican - last week.
Just voted in SW Boise. I arrived at the polling place (a local elementary school) right as the polls opened, and there were 40 people in line ahead of me. Within a few minutes there were 30 people behind me, too. This is a pretty conservative area, but I didn’t chat anyone up. The crowd was quiet and well-behaved.
I’m in Fairfax (Oakton) too and was there at 6:15am. Waited 1 hour to vote. Was alot longer than I expected but I was out of the country during the last election so can’t compare. I believe in ‘00 and ‘04 I didn’t have to wait at all.
They will never admit it but that's okay. Just so long as they are doing it and helping us rid the White House of this turkey.
That is so sweet!
Thanks for that reminder ;)
That is a good sign (Oakton)
My wife and I just nailed the sucker and I let out my usual 0b00000000z00000 shout at an earshot of many. We never looked back to see the communist reaction in this hotbed of crap!
It’s heavy, though, at this time of the day in our area. Cars streaming in and that bodes well for Righties. We counted one sign for 0b0z0 and local communists among 30-40 along the road for RR/local Repubs.
If there is, he didn’t know about it. :(
That’s cowardly. You are just trying to avoid the pain of disappointment by not taking sides among the real candidates.
I love it!
Same here in Lyndon,KY at 6:45am. Where are you?
I’ve been educating her about what it all means, freedom versus oppression, etc...and she see’s right through zippy, she watched the first debate with me and without me even saying anything she saw what a clueless empty suit Obama is... Her first comment that night was What’s wrong with him?? Lol
Obama wants nuclear disarmament, while Iran (which has said in PUBLIC it wants to nuke Israel) is being allowed to arm.
"Did you have a better job four years ago?"
Eighty billion dollars in losses from Obama's "Green Energy" companies going *BANKRUPT*.
Gas prices almost double what they were when he took office -- why did he block the Keystone pipeline from Canada?
"The war on coal" -- look up the clip about "you can build a coal-fired power plant, but it will bankrupt you".
He ran on "Hope and Change". Did he deliver, or is he making excuses and asking for more time while we've had 43 months of unemployment about 8%...?
Of course, I'd vote for Mark Levin's orange juice can to get rid of the Kenyan.
melancholy, I put up a New Jersey Thread.
Send me a URL, please.
I just came from my precinct. There were about 100 people in line to vote when a young man came in wearing an Obama t-shirt. I asked one of the poll workers about it as I thought it was against the rules. The poll worker, an older gentleman,said he’d check it out. The young man’s physical attitude was one of defiance, he appeared to be one of Omaha’s four, count ‘em four, occupy-ers. The poll worker conferred with another then asked the young man to remove the shirt. He wasn’t happy but did eventually comply. All this in the very red state of Nebraska and in a dark red precinct.
I hope Romney/Ryan win the day.
The DemoRats will probably take an early lead, until the Repbulicans get out of work.
I guess he’s right.
Here’s an article from yesterday’s Washington Times about Obama’s suppressing the military vote, with the Department of Defense claiming lack of funds. (But down to his last campaign speech last night, he was of course somehow claiming the cause of looking out for the treatment of returning vets.)
I guess it won’t permanently change until either the GOP grows some more of those Bachmann spines—or is replaced by a more vigorous and less compromised party.
Good on you! I wanted to do the poll thing but got jury duty instead.
Future wife and I voted this morning at Francis Scott Key Middle School this morning. Waited an hour and a half. The demographics looked much more white and elderly than I am used to going to the super market.
There was a person giving out an Official Democratic Ballet with all the good party member decisions already made for you so you don’t even have to read. Just match it up and go.
From your lips to God's ears.
