Ron knew how to attack politically, a skill the GOP desperately needs to relearn.

Ohio is O 49.2 R 49.1 (80% reporting) so how can they call it for Obama?

What do we have to do? What can we do? I have spent so much of my life involved with political issues for the past several decades. All that time wasted, only to see our republic be handed over to the leftists on a silver platter.

I think I’m done now.

“Well, Fox called it for obama, so I guess it’s over even without FL and VA being final. Or were they and I just missed it?

Oh, well, we will do what we have to do.”

This is one of the worst nights of my life.
I am in tears.
I worked so hard to help Mitt win.
(and I know you all did too)


Don’t cry. Our Republic has become a collective and too many view the government as God instead of a necessary evil.

Thanks for your work and God bless you and yours. I thought Romney ran a pretty good race against the media and Obama.

It is time for us to admit that this is not the country we thought it was... it has changed far faster than we ever imagined and it is doubtful that we will ever return to what we were. Is this the new normal?

There will be lots of misplaced hate for Romney on this site. I think the reasons for this loss go far beyond Romney - it goes to the very essence of our soul as a nation. A soul that increasingly appears rotten to me.

I bet a lot of big cities had 100% turnout for Obama. I bet they cast those votes for those people who never even realized they were becoming voters.

It’s over. The country I fought for, the country that I went back into harms way as a civilian for when asked, is gone. Oh, the lights stil turn on, the internet is still there, but the spirit is gone. It will shambe on as a corpse, maybe even for a good portion of my lifetime, but I will see it fall. Many of us will live to see these hordes that voted for Obama picking it’s bones clean.

Americans just clearly said that they expect the government to feed them, clothe them, and house them at the expense of other Americans.

The outlandish expense of gasoline is largely fear driven. If Big Oil thinks it’s about to take a forced financial bath tomorrow, it will charge as much as it possibly can today and nobody will break ranks for fear of becoming the extinct dinosaur of tomorrow.

Cain had zero governing experience. 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”. America was the last, best hope for the world, and is now hopeless.

Ohio is now a .1% gap O 49.2%/R 49.1%
80% of voters responding

Obama has widened the gap in Fla .6% with 96% responding
FLA is looking bleak, but there will be legal challenges.

Even on FreeRepublic, if natural law is discussed most here don’t understand the concept. If natural law is not understood, then no basis exists for understanding our Constitution.

So if here the building blocks of The Constitution are not fully acquired or understood...

I have no solutions. Decades of illegal immigration and liberal public education has destroyed this country. The dream here is dead. Perhaps a long dark age lies before us. But civilization has collapsed before, it will collapse again. The good news is our rotting putrid, stinking corpse will stagger along for a few hundred years more then fade away.

Give me a break. Romney ran a good campaign... probably as good as he could have. This is on the American education system and the people themselves.

Wow--I just thought the very same thing...

Well, it would be better to hand our progeny a robust faith than to hand it a neatly kept economic house. (And better the both together of course.) The Old Testament rules for the Hebrew people made long term debt impossible through its 7 year servanthood terms and 50 year jubilee years. Maybe God was a little more wise in devising such a plan than we would want to give Him credit for.

Difference of 1500 now with 20% still out.

I believe Romney will win Ohio tonight. I also remeber Freepers telling me that Ohio would be a very tough state for voter fraud to occur. I don't recall the reason why they said that.

Anyway the point is, Ohio will probably be the only state that over performs for Romney tonight.

I will also add that Indiana performed well tonight compared to 2008. Don't they have a strict voter ID?

“Now what? Here’s the plan:

1) Stay healthy because if you are over 40/not a government big-whig Obamacare will seek to kill you off.

2) Go Galt. Get layed off/fired without cause. Collect unemployment for almost 2 years. Why pay taxes?

3) Get as much government assistance as you can. AKA collapse the system

4) Be sure you have prepped for #3.

5) Pray. God help us.”
*****************

1)Well, I am a 54 yr old female in relatively good health. My husband is a disabled surgeon with a good insurance policy for the next 9 years (tax free). He is very despondent about the course of our country.

2.)I am self employed...not in my nature to get gov’t assistance as I make a pretty good money although not steady income....Real Estate....Guess a lot of folks may decide to sell now... I have slowed to NOTHING so not having work may happen.
Just turned down a listing as the seller did not want to pay me my fee. I am not a charity and don’t work for free.
So we are planning to be debt free soon. Have plenty of guns and ammo. Next step to begin prepping.

What kind of gov’t assistance?

4.) okay, I can at least pray. After all, God is the one in charge.

I think it is all in the attitude. I voted. I donated to campaigns. I voice my opinions. In the end, the idiots outnumbered us and cheated to get there.
I think we have exhausted a very WEAK field of candidates. Now we have gotten Romney out of our system. We see who we can trust. The GOP really needs to get its SH!T together.

Fortunately for Ron, and unfortunately for us now, Ron had a far different demographic to deal with. The Mark Steyn prophecy is coming true in front of our very eyes. Ted Kennedy set the ball rolling back in 1965 with a radical change in immigration policy. We as a nation have imported a Third World population that has overwhelmed the us to become the masters of our land. The whole Statue of Liberty myth has come back and bit us in the ass.

Fox News just flashed an Ohio Count:

Obama 2,256,785
Romney 2,259,173

With each at 49%!

Romney has MORE votes, but Obama gets the win checkmark?
Is Fox News DRUNK?
