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.

Well said volunbeer. Find solace in God, and in those you love. Know that you are not alone, and that with God, and with each other, we will persevere, somewhere, somehow.

May God keep watch, FRiends.

Ditto to everything you said. Obama is only a symptom of the disease that permeates this once-great nation.

Well said vBEER.
Other than us, individualism is dead and collectivism rules (as you pointed out).

Between public education and the young generation glued to a smartphone OR the Kardashians on television, you are correct that our nation will never return to what it once was.
