Truly amazing. Hope and change, the messiah, then all the failiures and unkept promises. We bring in a competent candidate that won the debates and the net gain... North Carolina and Indiana. Something stinks.

My last bit of optimism just left the building. We are now Greece. I’m beyond trying to figure out what goes through the minds of moochers. There are now family members that I will NEVER speak to again. Maybe tomorrow I’ll fight back, somehow but for now I’m so very sad.

I would say get an EBT card and use it to build up your food stocks, hasten the collapse, use Cloward and Piven AGAINST THEM!

Neil Peart is influenced by "the genious of Ayan Rand" and wrote the lyrics to Half the World.

This song just made me feel better. It's only half of us (plus dead voters, mickey mouse, and illegal alien multiple voter fraud):

It is beginning to look like Gore again, except writ over several states, not one. This will NOT be officially resolved by dawn. Commentators are continuing to apply “conventional political wisdom” to calculate the outcome of a situation that is anything but normal.

“THIS IS THE END OF THE UNITES STATES”

It certainly is the end of the Catholic Church in the Us, as Obama carries the “Catholic” states again. Here in NJ the Dems had already shut down many of our schools & hospitals with property tax policies and shrinking government reimbursements for legally mandated services, respectively; ObamaCare will remove the Church as competition in any remaining areas.

The hierarchy of the US Church needs to be replaced ASAP (should have happened years ago); in the meantime they won’t see much in the way of contributions from me.

“So people apparently want Government healthcare and higher taxes. Dumb asses. Also it’s apparent some of the R’s in OH went to Obama not Romney.”

Most of the people who voted for Obama don’t pay taxes so if taxes are raised they don’t care. The same people want Government healthcare because they believe it will work as well as their free phones, food stamp debit cards, and Section 8 housing vouchers. When you are on the receiving end of the government handout, every new program looks great.

47% of the population lives off the other 53%. Enough of the 53% allow their emotions to overcome their better judgement so that we are now past the tipping point.

Less than a .4% gap in Ohio—R has closed to within 28 thousand with a quarter of the vote out. The thing looks scripted to me.

It's not over until the votes are counted. Anyone ever hear what happened with the military's absentee ballots??

To: Crimson Elephant

Well, that’s it. The country decided to vote for the status quo.

This is just my two cents, but it seems to me that we have a couple of things that we need to contend with.

1. There are a lot of wishy-washy people who don’t appear to believe in anything. It’s my opinion that people like that tend to stay that way until they experience some sort of jarring epiphany of a negative sort. If we haven’t yet nudged them in that direction (to hijack a leftie term), we have a duty to do so.

2. 95%, give or take, of the black population will vote for a black Dem NO MATTER WHAT. Of course, those of us who have to live next to hellholes like Philly have known that for decades (when Wilson Goode got 99% of the black vote even after running the city into the ground that pretty much proved it). It’s right and proper to try to reach out to those among them who are still religious (and not in a “false prophet” Reverend Wright sort of way), but understand that there is a large segment who will never see reason. They’ve been brainwashed over generations by racial animosity and it’s become self-reinforcing. They are literally at “war” in their minds.

3. There is no small amount of people in this country who want “free stuff”, no matter who has to pay for it. You could say that they’re susceptible to silver-tongued people preaching the “virtue of envy”.

4. There is a segment of the white population, on the coasts but also along the Great Lakes, whose primary belief system is in feeling good about themselves and not in any abstract principles of what government is for and what it is not for.

5. We have a real problem with insular groups—ethnic, gender, whatever, that demand to have their asses kissed. What Sandra Fluke taught me is it’s not that women can’t pay for contraception, it’s that they want the rest of the country to kneel and kiss the proverbial ring. The same goes for every other “bloc”—everyone seems to want to have their “special identity” acknowledged so they can feel that they are being respected. Is it a sick twist of “respect”? Of course, but it is what it is.

6. And lastly, there are a lot of really ignorant (read: uneducated) people in this country who believe whatever mushy pablum they see on the tube. They love what they’re told to love and hate what they’re told to hate.

I don’t claim to have answers to all of these issues, but here are my thoughts:

I’m generally a tightwad, but I’ve gotten somewhat lax in going as Galt as I should be. It’s time to redouble my efforts with a newfound intensity. Before I buy something, I’m first going to see if I can do without it or craft it myself. I will especially ask myself, “is this going toward a service as opposed to a physical item?” If the answer is “yes”, then I will find a way to do without it.

I’ve been saying privately that I don’t have a problem with people having and using birth control, because the people who seem to need them the most tend to vote for socialism and tend to produce offspring like them. My opinion is that we should ship birth control into the cities by the truckload. If the 95% I mentioned above are determined to be at war with me, then anything that they do that limits their population growth is just fine with me. If I am forced into a war of attrition, then I intend to win it. As General Patton said, “no poor bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won a war by making the other poor bastard die for his.”

In 1980 the suffering became so bad that people had a momentary epiphany, but it was not one of principle—it was utilitarian. The people in this country are capable of principled governance, they are just too uneducated or unwilling to do so. I’m willing to accept that and its conclusion—they will only respond to such a painful epiphany, and only momentarily, but that is better than nothing.

I don’t feel depressed, nor do I feel angry. I feel determined, in a very cold, hard way.

The white conservatives are the dinosaurs, the minority. Latinos, Asians, Middle Easterners, blacks combined are the majority? It is a country of dark skinned immigrants, who have recently come to America, to escape tyranny and socialism only to support what they fled. It is now a country that celebrates mixed race, homosexuality, and death of unborn children.

The foreigners who reside among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower. They will lend to you, but you will not lend to them. They will be the head, but you will be the tail. 45All these curses will come on you. They will pursue you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the Lord your God and observe the commands and decrees he gave you. - Deuteronomy 28:43-44

I Recommend reading ALL of Deuteronomy 28 and recognize why America was blessed, and what our future holds from verse 15 to the end of the chapter because we forsook the Lord Our God.

My grandparents fled Russia and the Ukraine to escape tyranny and DIDN’T support what they fled. They would never believe this is what America has become. They felt they OWED it to THIS country to leave it better than they found it. How low so many have sunk and they don’t know it....or maybe they do and don’t give a rip.

I’m with both of you. Although I thought Romney would win as I am a realist, it is now time to list the house and consider a move to Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Thailand, or anywhere there is a solid ExPat community.

Am still young but if I liquidate everything and become a freeloader before I leave, I might just have enough to live out my years somewhere outside the USA. It will be sad to leave, but the Republicans will never learn to take off the gloves and fight dirty; nor will they ever master the cheating expertise the liberals have perfected.

Go off the grid if you can and let the system collapse - it is the only way to a brighter future. Would rather rise from the ashes than keep giving and pretending.

I for one won’t flame you. Romney is a very good man. He would have been an awesome friend to Israel. But it’s too late. G-d has given America over to it’s vile idol-worshipping evil. It scares me to think of the verse “I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you...” But G-d is merciful and will forgive and heal America if she repents.

You can’t realistically expect a better mix of circumstances to create a GOP landslide, and look what happened instead.

I said that after 2004. It should have been a landslide. Pinning it on anything, obviously it is whites becoming a minority, and the welfare state expanding out of control. Two things have caused this demographics shift; no border wall (enforcement), and anchor babies. In 15 years from now when the latest wave of anchor babies can vote, we will everything in a landslide.

While this is not a precisely transferable prophecy, it does outline a pattern of human events. If God blesses you but then you forsake your faith in the One who blessed you, then you will also lose the blessing. America let itself get bullied from within and without into becoming lukewarm about its biblical faith.

The access to higher education is very limited for white boys, as is any work related to the gubmint (not just gubmint jobs, but in companies which have contracts with the gubmint - the number of them grows every day as gubmint takes over the private sector).

It's whining like this, that makes conservatives look weak and ineffective. Don't blame anyone but yourself, if you don't succeed.

I'm a successful white man; but then I never expected anyone to hand me it.
