Vanity: THE GREAT EXPERIMENT IS OVER.
Self ^ | November 6, 2012 | A Navy Vet

Posted on 11/06/2012 8:36:51 PM PST by A Navy Vet

Bambi has won as I write this as of 8:15pm PST. Romney doesn't have enough Electoral Votes to counter California's 55 EV's. It's a done deal.

The Fedgov bureaucracy will increase; business regulations will increase; joblessness will increase; debt to our children will increase; corruption/secrecy will increase; energy independence will decrease; and on it will go.

We are heading into a 2nd World nation. Let's shake hands with Greece and Spain as we join them into economical oblivion. Maybe Germany can bail us out. Pfft.

What a great ride we had.

This was America's chance to restore us to sanity of Constitutional and rational principles - it is now gone. Good luck to all of you. I'm going Galt.

Costa Rica looks more appealing every day.

I think I will go back to learning Spanish.

This country is becoming Soviet Socialist Obamastan.

I’d like to know how a guy who can’t fill half the seats at his rally with big name entertainment can beat a guy who has twice the number showing up at his rallies with no entertainment.

How can this guy win a copy of his first election. Never seen that. Only House, no Senate no President. This guy cheated. Now is the time to impeach him tomorrow.

One of two things.
The machines were widely pre rigged to translate a small fraction of Romney votes into 0 votes.
Or the taking class is now in charge and we are screwed.
Either way I’m pretty sure we are screwed.

Seriously, if anyone wants to start serious work on a Texas secession movement then I’m in. It’s the only way to preserve liberty.

We need our Republican Congress to assume it’s Constitutional place as a CO-EQUAL branch of government and GROW A SPINE!!!

The people already hate Congress(no political Capital to burn because they have none), now is the time to lose some seats if need be, and be a REAL opposition. Shut the .gov down if 0bama won’t back down on budget fights. Defund entire agencies that do harm to the people. (EPA ...ect...ect)

We have the Congress, and THEY CAN DO IT! I believe new leadership is needed, because nothing I’ve seen out of Boehner or Cantor tells me they’re willing to play for keeps and be serious about all of this.

Sadly we should convince the Libs on each coast that the best thing to do is let the “Heartland” become it’s own country and we should damn well cite The Czech republic split in the 1990’s as the “example” and not the stupid democrat infested south of the 1850’s as the example....

Wookie was never proud of America until her world-socialist hubby was elected? Since it looks like hussein has been re-elected, for the first time in my life I am ashamed to be American. Are we really, really this stupid, self-centered, and easily manipulated? If so, you all richly deserve every single thing you’re going to get over the next four years.

Yes, I really do think this was a last chance lost! Our Education system has finally performed up to their expectations.

I think it just might be time for all major businesses to move into the Red States and give up on those voting Blue States. Yes, you could say going Galt but it could be much better or worse (if you are a Blue State resident).

When you have to work with folks that want to vote themselves benefits from the Government you have to finally decide on a course of action.

It will not get any better after this election! Most actual Conservatives or so-called Republicans will no longer vote in enough numbers to ever bring the Republicans back into power. Another party will finally take hold and it will be very welcome - eventually! Good riddance I’d say!

After all, after this, what else is there to lose?

Take off your tinfoil hat and step away from the bong, dude.

Nobody should be surprised if this country re-elects a jug-eared dope who they already elected four years ago.

If it makes you feel any better, just realize that this election became pretty inconsequential after 2010 once you had the Republican Party campaigning against the massive Medicare cuts in ObamaCare.

Stay safe, and stay armed.

Four more years of the marxist president. With the help of Reid and probably the opportunity to nominate 2 or 3 Supreme court justices and many federal judges this country will be unrecognizable. The federal debt will be 20 or more trillion once they finish looting the treasury.

The Cloward–Piven strategy is stating to look appealing. Let's just all go on federal aid and see how they plan to support everyone.

The political pundits and analysts will dissect rationalize, and they will conclude that the Repubs just didn’t lie enough, commit enough crimes, perpetrate enough fraud, and so enough contempt for the intelligence of their own constituencies. Obama ran a “better” campaign, and he won. America lost.

Democrats have long realized the great resource that is the stupid serfs that our educational system has delivered us. Decline and struggle is the only near term prediction anyone sane can make. Let me hear about compromise, and moderation, and “shifting to the center”!

Obama cannot deliver anything like the results we need or that he has promised UNLESS he completely changes the direction of virtually everything he has so far put in motion. Fat chance of that.

There is so much more to come... and very little of it good.

So now they too, wade in the sewer of Commy-Care, along with the rest.

NEWS FROM THE FRONT

I am an election judge in Michele Bachmann's district in Minnesota (small "c" conservative) and I could not believe what I saw.

Over one in four voters were new registrants (didn't even vote in 2008 for Obama) and they were scum! I didn't know they lived here and many were from out-of-state.

I guess handing out food stamps and removing work requirements for welfare and extending unemployment really swells the Democrat voter rolls.

Dat n***** really know hows to get out da' vote!

" Now is the time to impeach him tomorrow."

Dream on. No one in Congress has the balls anymore to do such. Hell, they won't even fight against his Executive Orders that so often contradicts Congressional legislation/law.

It's over, this great experiment in self-determination is now officially toast. As attributed to Benjamin Franklin, "Once the populace realizes that they can vote themselves the treasury (taxes), the nation is over". Or words to that affect. The "gimmes" now have taken over from the "producers".

My suggestion to all, protect your assets and live your lives like there is no tomorrow. Our plan is to spend every asset we have and die with dignity, integrity, and honor.

If there is depression and hyperinflation, democrats and liberals will suffer the most. In an environment like that, only those who are self-reliant and inventive maintain or thrive. At some point people have to learn the truth either through imagination and open-mindedness or hard experience.

This country has chosen hard experience.

H.L. Mencken: “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”

Obama said, "Vote revenge." Valerie Jarrett said, "There is going to be payback. If you were with us you will be rewarded. If you were against us you will be punished. There is going to be hell to pay."

I wonder if we just turned into that democracy you referenced. It sounds like the Bill or Rights just went out the door, anddear leader will reinstitute the French Revolution redux.

Not enough fraud to make the difference if you include Cali 55 EV.

"Or the taking class is now in charge and we are screwed. Either way I’m pretty sure we are screwed."

Hear's my thinking about protecting what will be the last stance for our liberties: Support Arizona, Texas, and other States that support carry and/or concealed carry. Other than that, move to Costa Rico and hope their political system doesn't go down.

IF you return to Tennessee, there are three areas to avoid, if you can, because they are becoming liberal cesspools: Memphis (really all of West Tennessee), Nashville, Knoxville. Upper East Tennessee is holding the line, but with the liberal East TN Sate U here, it’s only a matter of time until even this region begins to stink.
