ELECTION DAY November 6, 2012 ***LIVE THREAD I***
FREE REPUBLIC!!! | 11-6-12 | Free Republic

Posted on 11/06/2012 3:18:47 AM PST by RKBA Democrat

The polls are open on the east coast!!

From this morning's election day prayer thread:

"Heavenly Father may you forgive this nation and its people for the many awful sins that we have commited against you. We do not deserve the wonderful ways we have been blessed and please forgive us for our indifference,neglect and complacency towards you. May you forgive us who are members of your Church who have neglected our calling and commitment to you to be effective witnesses and stewards of the many blessings you have generously bestowed upon us. Many of us have cried out to you for the past few years as never before and we humbly beseech you to bring an overwhelming, crushing defeat on the forces of darkness in our nation. First we pray that you quicken your Church by your spirit and lead us to unity to stand against the onslaught of darkness upon us. May you smash every crooked deed as evil men and women try to hold onto power and may this be so convincing that everyone knows that your hand is in this. Then we may bring the light of your Gospel to our people who do not know you and to the nations of the world.

May you block and undo every policy and piece of legislation they have passed that is harmful to this nation. May you make every policy they make fail and may you turn the hearts of the multitudes against them. May you thwart every evil deed they try to divide this nation with. May you bring their own mischief upon them ten fold. May you punish those in our government who are lawless traitors and enemies of the Constitution by exposing them and deliver them into our hands for justice. However we also pray that through this that you open their eyes to the truth and in your mercy that you bring these people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ to serve as a witness to many. May you also use this to bring revival across our nation and a restoration of a culture that glorifies You. We also pray for those just leaders in our government who are struggling against the lawless. We pray for your protection and that you embolden them to do what is right to triumph in the election and in the arena of ideas. May you also continue to open the hearts and minds of the American people to the the truth and draw them towards yourself to be renewed in repentance and spiritual rebirth.

And this we humbly ask in Jesus name. AMEN!"

Just voted in blue county in Iowa (Story county, home of Iowa State U).

Very few people in line (less than 10). But then again, these blue folks don’t tend to get up till later in the morning.

I supported Santorum and Cain before that. Resources are important, but principles are more important. If the ship is well outfitted, it doesn’t much help us if they aren’t sailing in the right direction.

I’m a big republican my wife is a big democrat her whole family is. One rule in my house no politics ever. We went to vote together today when she got off work at 7am. After we voted and got back in the car she looked at me and said I just want to talk politics real quick and let you know I voted for mitt romney. I almost fainted. And she voted for josh mandell the republican running for senate against sherrod brown. I couldn’t freaking believe it. She’s a huge democrat and we don’t talk politics because it leads to fights. She said obama and brown had their chance and they just made things worse so its time for something new. I’m very proud of my wife today.

We are also at war w the MSM remember?

Absolutely! Can't win the war in one huge battle. It may take many small ones.

The MSM is just as responsible as the marxists for dumbing down and attempting to destroy this country. I will take any opportunity I can to deliver them a kick to the face.

The MSM is exposing about 12 inches of neck laying straight across a chopping block with their outright campaigning, support, and covering up, for BO. The time is now to take a big whack at it.

We would be stupid not to.

The script for Romney’s GOTV callers isn’t very good - it doesn’t have any real specifics to help convince people who don’t support Romney to vote for him.

Can any of you help me find a short list of talking points I can use in my calls? I’m going to start looking on my own.

Thank you for being a friend to me back in 2007 when I was still thinking about Mr. Romney but supporting another candidate. Today is a big day, and I hope all will go well.

Reporting in from the Upper East Side of Manhattan...we now have paper ballots instead of the old lever machines so this created lots of confusion. I was also sent to another polling site a few blocks away by a poll worker with 5-inch purple sparkle nails shoving pastry in her mouth...where I was then told to go back to that site OR just fill out an affidavit. What??? I want to vote at the proper place—screamed I. So I raced back in the cold to my original polling site of ten years and found my district. The woman behind me was chatting with her husband about Barry and the Boss, the Christie call and how she couldn’t imagine our country with that scary VP—what’s his name?

I haven’t voted (Massachusetts) yet, but as I was traveling in to work, the radio host was listing reports from around the area... most saying lines were in the hundreds, and 45 mins waits or longer.

I had to wait in line to vote today. I’m 41. I’ve never waited in line to vote my whole voting life. I heard most republicans wait till election day to vote like I always do and if that’s the case then republicans are out in big numbers I’ve never seen in my area. Hope that’s great news for romney today. God obama needs to go so badly for this countrys sake. I’m very new here but loving it.

Just FYI...if any of my fellow Freepers have time to make GOTV calls on behalf of Romney/Ryan, you can go here: http://mi.tt/VvV2dZ

Even a couple of calls could be enough to make a difference.

Just voted here in the People’s Democratic Socialist Republic of Illinois. Actually this is a rural county in central IL. Turnout brisk, not overwhelming. Romney will carry this county big (shoot, even McCain carried it in 08).

Amen:) you would not believe the trolls on Akin’s facebook site today. I believe most live out of state, out of this country and the rest are on the govt dole.
Praying that he wins and if he does it is because of people like you and me that know his record and know how clear the choice is between Akin and McCaskill. A full blown leftist liberal vs a christian conservative.

My husband and I just voted in Bucks County, PA. There were only 4 people in line ahead of us—we were lucky. I asked the poll worker how the turnout was. She said between 7 and 9 people were standing outside in the cold; the turnout since 7 has been higher than she has ever seen!!!!

Just voted this morning around 9 AM in SW Pennsylvania (Washington County) The wife voted earlier on her way to work. I was number 108 which is about double from previous years. Ladies at the polls stated they were very busy this morning. This is a heavy Rat Union Zombie area.

I have been focusing on R&R’S energy plan:

1. North American energy Independence within 10 years
2. Lower energy prices stimulates the economy
3. Creates millions of jobs
4. Invigorates American manufacturing because we can be more competitive with lower energy prices.
5. The value of our dollar will rebound worldwide.

I agree. I remember reading a lot of this anecdotal evidence in 2008...and about the polls being oversampling dems...and we see where THAT got us...

They actually did, but what really happened was scads of conservatives sitting out because of McCain (McCain/Feingold, "You don't need to fear this man as your President", abandoning the campaign for the financial meltdown, etc).

The conservatives are back with a vengeance this time: picking Ryan as a VP was the signal they needed.

Cheers!

Maybe I’m wrong, but I think there will likely be lots of blacks voting for Romney. Obama really stepped in it with his support of gay marriage.
