Michelle Obama said on Nov.7th they were going to have the biggest party at the white house...

If I answer the way I really want to I'd be banned.

About the only question left is will Romney lose by a bigger margin than McCain did.

Not a chance. He's already locked up ~200 EVs. McCain got 173. He's also won red states with bigger margins than McCain did, and lost blue states with smaller margins. Much closer race than 2008. Not that it means anything, of course.

The majority of the country is now being populated by low-lifes, and those who don’t give a crap about things (even know they know full well that we’re headed in the wrong direction)! It’s going to get a lot lot worse before it ever gets better.

The only problem is millions of actual PRODUCERS will be the ones losing everything so moochers can keep what they never earned in the first place. And that is even if the muzzie bastard in the white hut doesn't get us into some serious shit first by his inability to act to overseas aggression, INCLUDING the Russians, not of that past meeting, but one of their subs recently 200 miles from our shores.

Great post.

The founders made it crystal clear that America can only work with a Moral, informed electorate. Since we have neither, America has ceased to work.

America was poisoned during the 1960s and is dying a rapid death.

Pray to God and apologize to your offspring.

We will get through this because we are the ones who can take care of ourselves when the bottom drops out. We are the ones who will look out for and protect and provide for our families. We don’t need the government and we won’t be surprised when it fails.

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.

I'm what is commonly referred to as a "fallen-away Catholic." I haven't been to church in years. For me, it was really the child sex-abuse scandal. I had close friends and relatives who were abused by priests. While I wasn't abused, two of the priests I grew up with are doing long prison sentences for abusing pubescent boys. Another was openly gay and preached to the congregation about how homosexual acts weren't sinful.

The tepid response of the Church hierarchy is what finally made me close the door. If the hierarchy were at all sincere about repenting of their horrible crimes against the faithful, all of the higher-ups, from Pope on down, would have resigned, they would have forced all homosexual priests (celibate or not) to be laicized and they would have instituted marriage for all new ordinations (with some exceptions for the monastic orders). But that's not what they did. It means that they're the hierarchy are members of the Lavender Mafia. The current Pope is obviously gay (I'm sure he's celibate, but he's clearly gay, just listen to him.

Anyway, it was really the collapse of pillar institutions like the Catholic Church that caused the current rot. All of us - Catholic or not - were betrayed by the homosexual Catholic clergy. They, perhaps more than any others, are the cause of the current moral rot.

And the laity tolerated it, participated in it.

All Americans, and Catholic Americans in particular, richly deserve the chastisement that is coming.

Could I be justly accused of a lack of Christian charity for indulging in a secret enjoyment of their suffering? I think not. I for one am looking forward to watching my fellow Americans suffer for this decision. This is gonna be fun.

The Consitution is dead. This country is over. Everyone wants to be on the dole and doesn’t care who pays for it. The “middle class” has been bought and sold.

It’s only going to get worse so you might as well cash it all in, move or just blow it and live with it.

Time to collapse the system ala Greece, get on every program you can. Take from the dwindling producers. Ayn Rand was wrong.

And, more importantly, can we finally WRITE OFF THE GOP and take it over, ala Reagan, again. But then, that didn’t turn out well.

Frankly, I’m more not looking forward to Obama as much as another 2-4 years of John Boehner kissing his ass.

I’m moving out of the country as soon as possible.

Bye folks.

We are going to find out, and soon.
People keep saying, “what happens when?”
We are right on top of the answer. Within 4 years we are going to limit out our ability to monetize our own debt without causing hyperinflation.

Why do you think the federal debt rose 6 trillion in 4 years? That’s the money we spent OVER the taxes we took in.

And tax flow to the government is slowing year on year.

It’s already past no return. That’s why we needed Romney. Just to HALT the debt GROWTH we would have to slash federal spending by 50% or MORE. That means a virtual overnight halt to entitlement spending, cutting social security in half, medicare in half and shaving a little off defense.

Cities will burn.

And that’s if we do it voluntarily NOW. 4 years from now, we will have a full currency crisis and almost no one will own a home. Simply feeding yourself will be a feat.

Yes, white females made the difference, but we overestimated the desire of conservatives to crawl over broken glass to get to the polls to vote against Obama. The fact that the Republican primaries attracted such little interest was a sign that we could not win in the fall. Romney was supposed to be competitive in such states as OR, MI, WI, IA, OH, PA, and MD, where voters like “moderates.” Never happened. Only George Romney’s old rival, Nixon, managed to sit on a lead and win in 1968.

“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 doing OK; if you’re successful I’m sure you have no problem with your tax dollars sending less-qualified affirmative action women to college (to the point where they make up 59% of college classes). I’ve been working since I was 12 (I’ve never neen unemployed since), my longest vacation was 2 weeks (my honeymoon; otherwise 1 week), worked full-time while getting my degree full-time, and I’m current on my bills while raising a family in one of the most expensive states in the country.

Nobody knows more than me that nothing is handed to you if you are a white guy; stating facts isn’t “whining”. “Whining” is American women complaining that their marginalized menfolk won’t marry or breed with them, when in fact there is little incentive for them to do so.

Romney has the whole package. Private sector, governing a large important state, solid credentials, spotless record, might have cheated at checkers once. Total boyscout, handsome, well-spoken confident, and America said “no thanks, we’d rather have free stuff”.

Romney also is one of the biggest losers in American political history. You get that title when you have no solid positions to run on. He is as genuine as those golden tablets

I hope to never see or hear from him again.

I was 18 in 1980 and voted for the 1st time for Ronald Reagan. The future was so bright. That light was snuffed out tonight. I knew we were in deep, deep, trouble yesterday when watching Squawk Box on CNBC. Jack Welch was trying to discuss a topic with some young kid... who the other commentator’s asked if he was even born when Reagan was President. The kid was born during the early Reagan years. In this kid’s life experience it has been Clinton/Bush/Obama. Jack Welch was wasting his breath. This generation cannot conceive the country we had.

Yep. And this is happening because the people are immune from the consequences of their bad decisions—there’s a bailout, the Fed engages in Ponzi scheme activity with the Treasury Dept. to obscure our actual insolvency, etc.

The GOP actively sabotaged Herman Cain, they went beyond merely not standing up for him.

Beyond that, the GOP nominees were the weekest bunch of GOP candidates I have ever seen run for president. There wasn’t a single among them that had a chance to win the election besides Romney and he barely had a chance to win.

I’m not saying they would all be bad presidents — I’m just saying not a one of them could possibly beat Obama. I am fairly certain the GOP-e pulled strings to that affect to insure Romney would be the nominee.

OH, and I have stated many times...regardless of how bad Obama was and what he has done, I’ll bet we’ll find out later that the stupid Catholics and stupid Jewish and stupid union workers still voted for him.

All the talk about how Obama was dwindling his vote amongst those interest groups was BS. Pennsylvania and Ohio are toast. What a bunch of retarded unionized voters. Hope they all starve in the next four years.

Well, at least women can get free birth control...just thank god they have abortions. Maybe if we pro-life people just help them, we can abort the idiot vote.
