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.
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.
Good for you my friend. That is very encouraging.
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?
That is GREAT!
God Bless You!
As a Veteran of Katrina and Wilma, I have a little idea of what you must be enduring.
I hope you have Power, Gas, Heat, FOOD, CLEAN WATER, AND ALL THE COMFORTS OF THE AMERICAN DREAM VERY SOON!
Yes. Project Orca
Happy Birthday, Laz.
Did you bring enough cake for everyone?
It was a faux pas de deux! :-)
Wow. Congratulations! Very proud of here indeed.
Yes prayers up for mitt romney today. I humbly ask for the Lord’s blessings to install new leadership in our country. With God all things are possible.
Rahm .... is that you? Love the tutu!! :-)
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.
Not only is she pretty but smart, too!!
Very happy for you and very proud of your wife. Tell her she made a LOT of conservative friends today! I congratulate her on having the eyes to see. Give her a hug from all of us!
I’m proud of her too!
Take her to a nice dinner today in appreciation of her vote for Romney.
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.
Sounds great! I hope that she’ll be part of another Reagan Democrat wave that will sweep in Romney and Ryan.
Thank you all. You all know how to make a newbie feel at home. My new republican family.
I hope you are surprising your wife with a dozen roses and dinner out this evening? :)
welcome to FR. Good news on your wife’s change of heart.
There are some GOOD people on this site..kick back, read, learn, study and enjoy.
God Bless America!
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).
JUDGE ORDERS SEATING OF REPUBLICAN ELECTION OFFICIALS ALLEGEDLY EJECTED BY DEMS IN PHILADELPHIA
I respect that, but it’s like painting the kitchen while the house is still on fire. First things first: Unseat Obama.
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.
I buy her roses on a regular basis. Like once a month because she’s a great wife. So I think esther price chocolate sounds good for her vote. Its her favorite. Lol I’m so glued to the tv already. Fox news is stuck on my tv. Lol
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!!!!
Well, welcome to the FR family! It’s an awesome place.
Traffic on here should slow down soon because we won’t have 10,000 threads/day griping about Obama anymore! :-)
Now look at how that compares to historical values:
And look at Virginia:
While over in Ohio:
Forgot to say, I selected straight GOP, Looked at Mitt Romney for President for a minute or two, said a little prayer and pushed the vote button. What a thrill!!!!
Yeah, we'll just start griping about President Romney. ;)
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.
Yeh, yeh...gotta have SOMEthing to grump about. Hehe.
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.
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.
I just voted in Hudson, NH. I’ve never seen that many people at a polling place! Wow!
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.
We may be a cranky bunch but we’ve got your back.
Thanks. I’ll use that if I reach any undecideds.
I’ve been calling Philly for the past half hour, and I’ve been amazed at the level of enthusiasm I’ve heard from older voters.
Voter Fraud reported on twitter:
@JamesOKeefeIII Talked to friend in Nashua NH this morning whose vote had been stolen by 7:30am by person using name/address/ID.
