We’d see an immediate attack on gun rights via Executive Order that makes ‘Fast & Furious’ look like a board game.

Perhaps not much if the Tea Party votes for big Republican control of the House and Senate. He could use the bully pulpit to stomp his feet.

(1) He'll revoke every tax break in the federal code. Cap. gains will be taxed as ordinary income. And his coup de grace will be federalization of all pernisons, IRA's, and 401K's.

(2) He also will create a CCC/WPA type organization that will have police state duties, after rioting starts after No. 1.

Reminds me of the apocryphal question FDR asked of his secretary as he considered Einstein’s letter advising him of the potential of an atom bomb, “If Hitler had a bomb that could destroy entire cities what would he do?” She answered “He’d use it”. If Obama had another four years with no reelection worries? He’d destroy this republic.

And how, exactly, would a GOP-controlled house and senate restrain Obie’s use of Executive Orders, USSC and other judge appointments and nominaitons and foreign treaties to continue with his destruction of the USA? Perhaps by calling for his impeachment. But other than that, we’d still be royally screwed.

If the Lord God lets Obama get reelected then there is no Lord God! There is NOTHING any one can say or write that can convince me other wise.

I’m so tired of all the let downs:

1.) No leardership
2.) No direction
3.) No faith in God
4.) No faith in our country
5.) No hope in our fellow man
6.) No real men
7.) No family unit support
8.) No fighting for our rights
9.) No real reporters
10.) No NOTHING

Please God in heaven help us in real time of need!!

You might want to start with not blaspheming the Deity. We are not God. We don't know his timeline. I certainly hope we rid ourselves of the plague. Pretty weak faith if you deny God over an election no matter how important you think it is.
Second what are you DOING besides whining? Actions speak louder than words. People are sick of me but I will again say that our county has taken over the process here. We choose who gets elected in local and national elections.
We have clout. And the politicians know it. It was not easy and it was hard work and we rubbed many the wrong way.So what??? We achieved some of our goals and are pushing to obtain all of them.
So off the computer and work for what you want. No faith? I teach in my church's CCD class. No direction? We are providing a Tea Party led direction. No leadership. We are leaders. I lecture on the Constitution and the Courts. You have it in your hands to affect all 10 let downs.
Do it. Please. If not you who?

It depends on whether or not Mitt kills the down ticket as well. We lose the House and you and I may wind up in reeducation camps. We keep the house and gain nothing else and look for the US to go full out Euro-Socialist. We keep the house and gain the senate and you will see Bam Bam sending out trial baloons to see if all his shiney new afirmative action generals will support him in a “temporary” suspension of the other branches of government.

The Lord God is Ruler of the Universe. Whether Obama, or anyone else thinks that is irrelevant. He just is, as everyone is about to find out. He IS, and he RULES in the affairs of men and the Universe. - I think Obama is a judgement of God on this country, and the world, Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Clintons and all their minions. We are the things created, and as such, His ways are above our ways and His thoughts above our pitiful thoughts.

My 6 grandkids!! They are what it is about! The Lord God must help me protect them.

I’m a Tea Party member who has been to many an events and donated 100’s of dollars to help get the word out.

I too lecture on the Constitution and have studied it for more 55 years. It will take a true leader to get us out of this mess we are in. That leader will need the Lord God to give him or her the drive to lead and lead us out.

One thing I know he’ll do is what the British Labour party did during the long Blair/Brown years: Remove all immigration restrictions and take in millions of immigrants for no other reason but to give the Democrat Party a permanent electoral majority.

Exactamundo!

YET, we have "Freepers?" such as Waywardson who want all of us to abstain from voting for Mittens and goes so far as to frame his arguments wrapped around "Christianity and Patriotism," as outlined in his INSANE and DELUSIONAL RANT yesterday: " "Why Christians and Patriots CANNOT vote for Mitt Romney

I'm still shaking my head over that one and what you claimed our FASCIST, NARCISSISTIC, NEO-COMMIE, AMERICA-HATING, TERRORIST-SUPPORTING, Dear Leader would do, is only the tip of the iceberg and will no doubt harm our Republic to a point we may not recover for decades....IF EVER.

Sure, stay home and help O'Bummer get re-elected.

Makes sense to me!!!!! /s

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.” ~ Ronald Reagan, from his first inaugural speech as governor of California, January 5, 1967

Ronald Reagan’s warning about losing our freedoms echoes down through a generation of lost momentum and squandered opportunity.

We now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen.

In any case, Americans will get the country it apparently wants and a country it so richly deserves.

I would have voted for Newt.

This is something you need to ask yourselves. I'm not condemning or judging you, as it's your choice alone and one that I'm not qualified to make for you. But you know as well as I do what awaits us if Obama is reelected. If Obama does win a second term and the inevitable happens, you'll have to ask your consciences “Did I do my part to prevent this catastrophe from happening?”

My conscience is clear. I have no intent of facing my maker with excuses about the lesser evil.

Its something I gave a lot of thought to many months ago and I have to put my own soul first because there is no collective salvation and I can’t save America by myself.

If Obama does win a second term and the inevitable happens, you'll have to ask your consciences “Did I do my part to prevent this catastrophe from happening?”

That's the failure of your logic, you state something as both obvious and inevitable that is more than just a little unlikely of occuring.

It's little more than propaganda as our system, this system of checks and balances, and ultimately, the 2nd Amendment is designed specifically to stop or halt what you are so obliquely hinting at.

I'm not willing to trade my conscience, my principles or my morals on the basis of your improbable surmisings.

To restate, it is ABL (Anybody but a Liberal), not ABO (Anybody but Obama).

I don't vote for Progressive Liberals whether they have an 'R' next to their name or a 'D'.

Here’s my dilemma.

If Romney is but Obama lite and he clearly is, and if Romney has the presidency and add to that his GOPE kingmakers behind him to push the very same things they objected to and stopped without a single vote, but will eagerly pass under Romney, then what have I prevented?

The GOPE purposely killed the Republican Party this year. They are expecting us to support that killing, by working us over with another force feed, of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”— certain that we will swallow whatever they dish up. We always have before, and we will again, and we always will, until we STOP.

I stopped.

I’m sure all those who insist that a candidate be a perfect conservative before getting their vote, have spouses that look just like Marilyn Monroe or Cary Grant (or the modern day equivalent of them). Of course, they are themselves perfect in every way. They also have the perfect car, perfect house, perfect children, and the perfect job.

They care for nothing or no one but themselves and their bubble of perfection.

My conscience is clear. I've been warning you, and many others, for a very long time about what was happening in the Republican Party.

But don't kid yourself, the catastrophe is already upon you. And it has little to do with Barack Obama. It's the fruit of the compromise of a whole generation of Americans...including, and perhaps especially, a whole generation of Americans who call themselves "conservative."
