” We only loose if we,as conservatives,refuse to fight.”
So what, pray tell does that fight look like?
Conservatism needs to go full beast mode.
The GOP compromised conservative principles and ran a flaming liberal and Freerepublic compromised conservative principles and embraced a flaming liberal and today is the result of playing party politics and abandoning principle.
Therefore, you Sir or Ma'am, are the problem here.
No, he didn’t clean Barry’s clock. But do you really think that Santorum or Newt would have done better?
“Romney ran an absolutely awful campaign with 1 spectacular debate that kept him in striking distance.”
Romney ran one of the best organized, best-informed, most micro-targeted campaigns we have ever seen.
Until you begin to understand the true enemy we face, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, you will continue to lose.
Hell, a woman who faked being a minority for government-mandated benefits got elected to the Senate, for chrissakes.
Republicans need to infiltrate the Democrat party, fight fire with fire,
We are now a third world nation, Obama is leveling the playing fields, communist have been infiltrating the Democratic party for decades, now we Have Islam doing the same.
Run for office become a Democrat insider find out what it really going on.
Pretty much what I think too. I would love to see a President Palin(or Perry or Gingrich), but if this electorate was afraid of Mittens because of his milquetoast Pro-Life stance, that pretty much answers how the more militant candidates would have fared. Sad, but true. I pray for the day that this country can be taken back for God, but it’s probably too late.
Our country and it's values of inalienable rights from our Creator, of freedom & liberty & Judeo-Christian founding principles, are now officially dead. Over 50% of the country very stupidly voted for the RAT bastard commie muslim pig 0bama in 2008 and re-affirmed that again yesterday.
We are now officially one nation under government rather than one nation under God. I cannot understand why God would choose to honor & bless the RAT bastart satanic demonic 0bama or the democRAT party, over the millions of Christians & conservatives who voted against 0bama. It is a complete & utter travesty & devastation that was a complete slap in the face to Christians & patriots yesterday.
This is now America's greatest day of Infamy in our history. Our nation will shrivel & die within the next 4 years, and will likely be carved up into 4-5 regional countries, subservient to China, Russia & the Islamic caliphate.
You are using dated figures. The counting is still going on. Currently, it is Obama with 50% (59,666,257 votes) and Romney with 48% (57,045,223 votes).
Obama received 69 million in 2008 and McCain 59 million. I anticipate Obama will finish with around 63 million and Romney with about 60 million. Obama lost far more votes, but I think Romney did well since many conservative voters (WWII era folks) have died since 2008 and we are not replenishing them in the GOP.
That 59 million by McCain was the second largest number ever received by a Presidential candidate topped only by Obama's 69 million. I think the Rep vote is already hitting a high water mark. Demography is destiny.
FYI: Only 68% of the CA vote is in with Obama leading by about 2 million 5.5 million to 3.5 million. In 2008 Obama won CA 8.2 million to 5 million. We should see around another 4 million votes counted in CA, which will add to both totals.
If you are not willing to vote for a Republican candidate unless he is 110% to your liking, perhaps you are the RINO.
This country has lost its moral compass.
Eventually it will regain morality of the Islamic kind, may take decades, but they are patient, ask Obama.
Anybody that did not vote for Romney last night, is my enemy. I will no longer allow them in my life and will hold them responsible for the next four years.
Agreed 100% In TX, we will be blue in 20 years. GOP cannot win without TX’s 38 (will be more in 20 yrs).
If your statement that we are now a center-left country is true (which it probably is), then to hell with this irreconcilable Union. I want a divorce. I hope Secession is in our future.
Obama won because he took 5.1 million more votes in the under 30 demographic.
That’s obviously where we need to focus. The good news that in 2016 they will be 4 years older, paying taxes (if they can find jobs) and see what their health coverage looks like. People tend to become more conservative as they get older.
The Republican Party, the party of The Bushes, Bob Dole, John McCain and The Mittster, the party of indescribably stupid people like Akin and Mourdock, the party of selfish arrogant pricks like Chris Christie, the party that exists only to go along to get along, so long as there's an equity position to be found in any situation, died last night.
Oh it didn't? Well it fewking well deserved to. Not that it matters, but on my list to do today is to go change my registration to Independent, and then to ceremoniously BURN my Republican voter ID, never to change it back, "not never ever".
Then this weekend, discussion at home about how to weather the storm yet to come, or just face it now.
Best of luck to everyone...
I prayed daily but in my heart I knew people would never allow a Mormon president, but they don’t seem to have a problem of a Muslim one.
Obama isn’t for gay marriage, he just lies.
I am literally physically ill and depressed,
I truly think we are witnessing the last days.
The war on Christianity will continue with Obama’s blessing
Thanks for the correction on votes.
“Demography is destiny.”
Only if hispanics are incapable of learning about freedom and personal initiative. I doubt that is true. Texas and Arizona have a lot of hispanics but are not turning into liberal strongholds.
Rather than pandering to hispanics, we need to EDUCATE with intelligent, convincing arguments.
