BG, no one seems to care. They just want to blame the Republicans for not being ‘centered’ and ‘on key’.

Let me say this - the man in office is there illegally, and those who know it are ignoring it (or avoiding any discussion about it.)

Joe Arpaio PROVED without a doubt that the birth certificate is a fraud. (And I am not a ‘birther’.)

The voting machines were rigged. That has been proven.

Then, we have pictures of illiterate, illegals, being bussed to the polls, for free pizza, when they vote.

It has also been posted on FB, people bragging about voting in multiple counties.

Felons, illegals, dead people, and mentally incapacitated voted.

And, the Tea Party and GOP says NOTHING????? DOES nothing?????

I am shocked that this has been allowed to happen, in our country. Something is going on that we haven’t seen yet..... count on it.

Yup, and then they started Nationalizing whatever they wanted to, with blessings from RINO Romney, and all of the GOP-e who endorsed him.

A little old blue-haired lady once summed up the preacher's sermon on Peter being called to Christ across the water by simply saying "sinking was not his job."

It's not ours either.

No surrender. No retreat.

Well.....Just exactly what was Romney’s education?

Was it overwhelmingly in godless secular humanist schools? If so, why would anyone be surprised?

Thank you, Yorkie. I had never seen that video. I believe I read (don’t quote me) that the voting terminals were supplied by a country other than the USA, and that union people were responsible for their maintenance. I should have saved the info, but was confident that we’d win. So much for confidence.

Only the GOP-elite were surprised. Well, RINO Romney’s Haaaaaaaaaaaahvud campaign advisors also were surprised.

The Iron Triangle of RINOs, Democrats and CLAM, (Communist Liberal Agenda Media), do their best to ignore us here in wagon-pulling, flyover country. Thus, they have chosen to isolate themselves from those of us who actually pull the wagon - - - .

BTW, looks like a steep decline ahead. We just might, could step aside and allow old Wagon Number 47 find its own level of supply and demand. Beats paying endless tax increases - - - .

Yup. If we don’t it THE MARKET damn sure will!

BTW, did you notice that the CLAM writer of the posted article did not mention the fact that his beloved debt-based “culture” has to borrow 42 cents on every dollar it wastes to keep its Roman Circus “Free” goodies flowing?

He probably thinks the Potomac River is DeNile River!

Yes, the voting machines are made by a company called “DIEBOLD”.

Diebold voting machines can be hacked by remote control

Guess who owns “Diebold”?
George Soros

Make birth control as easily available as candy, and refuse government benefits unless the woman gets fixed would be the most effective way to deal with that problem, but the Romulans on this board don’t want to hear that.

White America is growing increasingly secular, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. That is where the votes are.

Southern whites are a dwindling minority in the US, with ZERO influence outside of the Army.

Urban sprawl = the areas where the majority of the population is. We are an urbanized country, no matter what we tell ourselves to the contrary.

You obviously are laboring under a gross misperception of the South. Do not judge us by the communist states of the North East or West. BTW... whites are still 75% of the population... but many up north and out west hate their skin color. Here is a surprise for you... black and white Conservatives in the South are united against tyranny. I have many good friends that are black... we shoot together, have other hobbies together and some of us worship together. Powerless... watch and see how powerless we are. It will be us in the South that will save this Republic if it can be saved... and we will start over if it dies.

God bless and keep you, dearest LibsRJerks.

Old Hollywood had it right. At least a lot of the screen writers and directors did. I so much enjoy those old movies which reflected the good American values of those days.

You’re right. We’ve lost so much.

When we welcomed June Cleaver and “Leave it to Beaver” into our homes ... little did we realize it was the beginning of a remake of America. There are educational programs on TV., and some worthwhile television programs. TV got our attention. TV dinners became popular. because we wanted to eat our dinner in front of the TV. No longer did we eat at the dining table and discuss the events of the day.

Enough of this. It is my thinking and I’ll leave it at that.

Be blessed and Pray for America.

I love old movies for the same reason. Liberals complain about those awful old censorship codes, but I think they actually resulted in better movies. Back then movie-makers could not rely on violence, language, and nudity, but had to keep viewers’ interest using only plot, dialogue, humor, suspense, acting, etc. I hardly even go to the movies anymore because of the subtle and not-so-subtle preaching about how evil conservatives, whites, Christians, men, gun-owners, Southerners, etc. are.

I wonder if someday old movies and TV shows will be banned because they will show what our country used to be like, and that it wasn’t the evil, bigoted, hateful place everyone will be taught it was.

With early voting(fraud)the election was over long before Nov. 6th.

The dems have a word for REAL free and fair elections...they call that being "disenfranchised".

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing".

Yes, the majority of Americans have conservative values and most don't even know it.
Nobody is telling young Americans and reminding all Americans what conservatives
truly stand for. Dems have their machine and we have none.

The way to do that is to have CONSERVATIVE groups sponsor educational classes in the social studies and history to Re-Educate kids who are put through the anti-western, anti-Judaeo-Christian, anti-American educational system.

They could be offered on weekends. Even the children of conservatives are exposed to this left-wing junk history in the public school systems and we are losing them.

50 posted on Thu Jan 03 2013 15:01:18 GMT-0600 (Central Standard Time) by Brooklyn Attitude: “My daughter recently gave birth in Utica which is a small city in upstate NY. Several nurses came up to her and her husband and asked if they were actually married. It seems that a married couple is now quite a curiosity in the maternity ward.”

That is scary, and rings true from what I've seen as well.

Bottom line — we cannot be defeatists. I've written more on that here:

http://freerepublic.com/focus/news/2975624/posts?page=14#14

A few of my points from that thread:

I am getting sick and tired of listening to defeatism and negativism among conservatives. Just exactly why is it that we are on the defensive? ... Defeatism is a device of the Devil, designed to disarm us."

We read this from the lips of Jesus Christ in Matthew 16:18-19: “...and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

The gates of hell are not offensive weapons, but defensive. We're supposed to be taking the fight to the enemy, not huddling in caves afraid the enemy will find us.

That role of hiding in caves is for the **OTHER SIDE** — read Revelation 6:15-17:

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

______

Some more points relevant here to the culture war:

But we also need to be realists. Ronald Reagan fought liberal efforts to take over the entertainment industry because he knew how much damage Hollywood can do. Well, we lost that battle, and we're reaping the consequences in our broader secular culture.

We need faith, family, and government — all three — to work properly in order to have a functioning nation. A collapse in the first or second area will lead to an eventual collapse in the third.

I think much of the defeatism we see comes from the fact that if a complete incompetant with a horrific record can be re-elected over a highly qualified candidate, what chance do we have? To me it was a shocking indication that we have reached a tipping point where the inmates now run the asylum.
