Posted on 11/06/2012 11:39:37 PM PST by veritas2002
This is the last time I will be voting in a national election. I am in my 60's and have concluded that, if this is the kind of governing Americans want, they should have it...and all its consequences.
Sour grapes you say? Perhaps. But after four years of the most abysmally failed government with consistently high unemployment, 16 trillion dollars in national debt, downgrading of our bonds and monetary system with printing of dollars by the Fed, attacks against freedom of religion, a loss of American leadership in the world, class warfare, homosexuality embedded in our fabric, our nuclear family deconstructed by government policies, gun running to Mexico and lies about it before Congressional hearings, refusal to protect Americans serving in our embassies across the globe, an energy policy that has tripled the price of gasoline at the pump, a Justice Dept that treats people not according to an equal application of the law but according to politics, a politicized press that is derelict in adequately informing the people about its government, attacks against free markets and capitalism, and on and on and on...
If given all this, the American electorate is either too blind to see or thinks that this exemplifies good government, then have at it. Just count me out.
But, some day perhaps people will wake up. My guess is that it will be too late and things most cherished - civic values long held dear - will be gone forever.
In the meantime, this retiree will collect his pension and social security and together with savings watch those younger and smaller in number figure out how they will pay for all the 'government hand-outs' and supportive services the 'baby boomer' generation that is about to retire will require. All the time doing so without the tax revenue on the income they earned while working. They will have to figure out how they, a very much smaller cohort of taxpayers will make up the difference.
They will need to come up with some better ideas than one Barack Obama and his list of accomplishments from 2008 to present. Good luck but you won't be seeing me at the polls ever again. It's been a ride. Adios, Americanos.
I bet he is.
The country was just given to him anyway. Obama wants a socialist country and America just gave him the thumbs up. Nothing we can do now.
That group would run at least 70% stupid class. MOST of the people who don’t vote, you don’t want to vote.
I don’t either. That would take some clarity and backbone.
Boehner lacks both.
“Democracy is a bad form of government, but the rest are worse.”
Democracy is the worse form of Goverment, that is why our founders establish a Constitutional Republic instead.
Of course folk like John Roberts effectly killed that Constitutional republic so what we are left-with is a government that can do anything at the beshst of the majorty of its people. IE: a democracy.
“Sure, it is easy to give up. Thats what Obama wants and why Obama kicked Winston Churchills bust out of the White House.
The last thing he wants are patriots who proclaims We will never surrender even in the darkest days of the republic.”
If you wish to continue this fight, you will do so in the striking minority of people who believe in the increasingly untrue virtue that hardwork, ingenuity, and honesty will get you ahead in life. Untrue because Washington does everything it can to punish the successful and reward the lasy at the behest of the lazy & jealous mob. IE: what democracy’s always do as they progressively murder themselves into extinction.
“A communist may occupy the white house but he is not a deity (despite what he thinks). We control the House, some of the courts, and many statehouses. And most importantly a constitution that provides some protection if one can find a decent judge. Hybris has brought down many egotists since ancient Greece, and it will bring down another.”
The Federal Constitution is as dead as its effective limits on the Federal Government’s power. Seeing as those limits are effectly dead in the eye of the hand picked Federal employees who have presumed the sole say in enforcement the Federal Constitution is dead. Hence our republic became a democracy, and democracy’s do what they have always done murder themselves in precisely the same way our democracy is now murdering itself.
You want to fight, find a way to cut ourselfs off from the cancerous bit of our population and create a new constitution of civil government among those willing to live by it in freedom. That of course will require some form of secession to keep the northern Mob’s greedy government hands off our hard earned money.
The GOP is not going to win any more national elections and will likely go the way of the Whig Party.
Obamacare is coming and with it, the destruction of the economy-and who will be blamed-The GOP.
He cant without money. If the house only passes minimal budgets, no continuing resolutions,etc, then maybe...But I dont see that happening.
I don’t understand. Congress hasn’t passed a budget for 4 years.
Shrugging may be the only viable answer. Starve Leviathan so as to speed collapse, then maybe people will learn. I always thought Galt was a little evil for not only sitting idly but intentionally trying to wreck the US economy. Maybe he was right.
“The country was just given to him anyway. Obama wants a socialist country and America just gave him the thumbs up. Nothing we can do now.”
On the contrary, analyze the situation and deduce a logical resolution.
Most of the population has decided that they criminally want to take the money from those who labor to produce and give it effecively to themselves.
IE most of our population consist of criminals, so how do you protect yourself from criminals? You have to cut off their access to you and your property.
Normaly that involves throwing them in jail, but we can’t built a jail to hold the select majority of certant states so instead we must build the wall around ourselves. That of course means we require some from of secession & Independence.
There problem soved we can do something about this.
As I will not accept the enslavement of myself and my posterity to any man or group of men this is therefore my presumed coarse of action.
TX Chick - Well said.
If we can get some Republicans that can clearly illustrate to blacks that the Democrats are holding their entire race & culture down; only then might things change.
As for Hispanics, my wife is from Peru and came here at about age 21-22 some twenty years ago. She is a die-hard conservative after having to live through Socialism and a dictator, and terrorism. There is a glimmer of hope to capture some Hispanics but the window is closing.
But, as we all know, many government welfare parasites love being lazy and under-achievers.
Yeah, but they were wrong about Bush. He was Big Government through and through. And 04 wasn’t the real test, the really fad Iraq hangover and economic meltdown were later. We know how bad Obama is already. It’s there in black and white. Nothing is yet to be revealed. Not since damnable FDR has the electorate been this bonkers.
Well the house passed Ryan’s budget which died in the Senate. We are able to keep spending because of continuing resolutions from 2008’s budget, I think.
That would have to stop and the government starved of funds.
The GOP doesn’t have the stones.
I do not see good things happening.
They sooner we its bottoms out the sooner it can reset.
I say the GOP also buys votes.
We should offer $500,000 and 1 acre in Manhattan for every vote.
New car for every illegal.
Increase Union government pensions three fold.
I’ll vote straight DNC for the balance of my life.
All Churchill got, aside from defeating the Nazis, was the opposite of what he wanted: no more empire, foreign policy dictated by foreigners, and the Iron Curtain. What crappy inspiration.
It is true that it is difficult to imagine how an entire race of people can be made to vote so unforminly for a particular party. Leads one to suspect there must either be something true in the ideas of eugenics or something about their propaganda campaign that keeps theses people political slaves to their race.
If it is a eugentics question than a change in policy is the only way to compete in theses commuities.
If however it is a propaganda issue then policy changes will at best produce only temporary results and that the real problem is that they are slaves to their racial leaders, and there is nothing we can do about it except sew rebellion which we have been trying to do for decades, or cut them off from our political system to force them into their own system composed entirely of their own race.(apparently the only race they can honestly debate with)
My view on voting is why should those of us in the red states even bother when everything hangs on OH. WI. MI, IND,
PA, VA, NC, FL..did I miss anyone? I mean who needs the rest of us to vote?
Don’t give up; just regroup your thoughts. Conservatism and self reliance was not the problem. We had a candidate that could not show enough people what self reliance and conservatism is(he didn’t connect) is vs. the other side just campaigning much better. It’s a terrible waste and such a hard lesson to endure..thanks to the same insiders running the party. They need to bring in younger people with good ideas. If they don’t, only becomes worse through the years. I always thought Obama would win so I am not shocked though sure do dread seeing him and his wife for 4 more years. His disdain for the constitution is hard to endure. One day, his lies/his administration’s corruption will be judged. Just don’t give up..next time..a stronger candidate vs an anybody but candidate.
Wonder what the Obamanation flag will look like? Still with that O with the farm fields of blue and white? Will we all be issued one now and told to take down our stars and stripe..oooppps....at 9:45 pst mine came down..yep in the dark I pulled her down and the neighbors will notice since I am the only one on our block with such a flag..won’t fly it on Vets Day or any other day until 0bama gone, not by violence against this grifter,,,just something natural like the teleprompter fall on him...
I wont be watching the immaugration...I’ll go to the beach and toss flowers into the waters as a burial for our country.
“But, as we all know, many government welfare parasites love being lazy and under-achievers.”
That is human nature, you can expect it to be the case of most people when given the operunity. Such is the driving downfall of any and all democracy.
“As for Hispanics, my wife is from Peru and came here at about age 21-22 some twenty years ago. She is a die-hard conservative after having to live through Socialism and a dictator, and terrorism. There is a glimmer of hope to capture some Hispanics but the window is closing.”
I’m not sure what we can do, I don’t understand the concept of being a slave to ones race, as most people put into theses groups apparently are.
How is it that they can create such uniformity in political thought among an “ethic group” does that not necessarily require the suppression of their own native thoughts & instincts to comply with the demands & political doctrine of the “group”? If so there must be some kind of overwhelming pressure for members of this group to comply.
How we defeat & destroy that “pressure” will require greater knowledge of it. Knowledge and experience I am quite frankly equipment to get not bing a member of that group.
I can’t blame you. I feel the same way. I am powerless to wake the Sheeple and feel helpless to reverse the national decline. I am overwhelmed with a “why bother, what’s the point” feeling.
Sure it's imaginable.
All is has take is 100 to 150 years of government owned and run, socialist-funded, and single payer K-12 schools!
If children attend socialist and single payer schools, eventually, ( given a few generations) the nation will learn to worship at the altar of government and look toward collectivism as its savior and redeemer.
When will conservatives wake up and stop focused solely on the next election? If we are to save our nation we must shut down government schooling. It can't be reformed because it is never possible to reform socialism.
I hear you, but I’m in OH and sure as heck didn’t vote for zero.
With all due respect, I think we got where we are because good men (and women) did nothing for too long! Now, conservative America has awakened to the fact that the socialists mean business and they laid the groundwork of this victory while we were off enjoying life and ignoring politics.
I am 67, and I know if I quit now my grandchildren will suffer needlessly.
I have just begun to fight. Who is with me?
I know how you feel. I thought about chucking politics myself a long time ago. I discovered I couldn’t. It would have been easier to do if I didn’t care what happens to this country. But I do care and so I’m drawn to politics like a lemming is to the ocean. Keep fighting the “unbeatable” foe. Don’t give up.
He’s lubed up and ready to go..
No! Holding the house will keep the commies partially in check. Let the Senate do nothing and the “POTUS” play dictator. Perhaps even the libs will realize their idiocy.
Yep, or he will cry, so as not to be labeled a racist by the Democrats! The RINOs have allowed for this outcome, our leadership had better start fearing God and His law or leave the Republican party!
I’m done too. I’m 47 with no kids to worry about leaving a crappy world which is coming anyway.
I can’t turn the tide when it’s going out on me.
My plan is now eat drink and be merry and hopefully get enough cash to check out somewhere away from this coming hellhole that was America.
That’s nothing but fool’s gold. Stop wasting our time by telling us what Republicans should do, and then sitting it out or voting third party. If you like a third party, go there and stay there.
I stopped flying my flag when Osama was elected the first time.
what’s done is done. The facts are that there are too many people that have bought into the propaganda. A single vote no longer counts, I quit too. It’s not worth saving,
Fine. Then get the hell out of America. You cowardly loser.
Many years ago I was the only breadwinner in our family, we were deep in debt, and I had 3 young boys to support. I decided to take a leap of faith and start doing business offshore. That was a decision that I've never regretted, and it's allowing me to put those three boys through college today.
In my case it wasn't money I tood offshore, but rather it was business.
Quit!...Hell No! I’m 63...Lets get it on!
I already have give it up.
The ignorant , uneducated , brainwashed asshole of the world now greatly outnumber us. The government control the media .
ITS OVER FOLKS AMERICA ID DONE FOR
I’m giving up listening to Levin , Hannity , Rush ..They are now irrelevant and pointless . I’m embarrassed today to be an American and if I had the means I’d move somewhere else , I swear to God I would.
I’m deleting Drudge and FR after today too. What;s there to read about any more anyway ? I don’t need to see the pointless arguing not do I need to read the gruesome details of the dismantling of this country. People are F-ing stupid beyond words.
Real stupid post man ..Jerk off
But also remeber in revoltionary Russia only a small percentage supported the bolsheviks. They took power by force and by exploiting the weakness and softness of the Czar.
The NEA and Media will assure they never will, now.
In three years, I expect breathless reports, like "Dear Leader made seven holes-in-one today!" "He made the trains" run on time."
Daily reports in the "news" about the latest death tolls from the epidemic of Gun-Owner Typhus".
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”
Come on man, they are just printing money now.
By the Billions every month, soon to be trillions - wonder why everything is more expensive?
The only way to stop this is with impeachment and there is no chance of that ever happening
That’s for sure, saw partial of his speech about what the American people want are politicians to work together blah blah blah.....
I will not stop voting. But,I do think that most of America is stuck on stupid today. We lost several critical races, I’m still in shock.
I am not per se, opposed to vulgarity or profanity. Time and place for everything. This is surely the time.
Myself, on Sept 12, the company I worked for for the past 23 years announced they were closing us down effective Nov 12. This is a direct result of a major portion of the printing we do being sent to Mexico and China.
I was planning on retirement in three years, but now will advance the date and begin to live off fixed income - SS, pension, savings - as long as I am allowed to keep them and as long as funny money holds together some semblance of an economy.
Israel of old was given wicked rulers when they abandoned God and spurned His way for them. It probably cannot be proved, but I doubt that their sins included the slaughter of 50,000,000 of their own children.
There have been two specific times in my life when I had great hope that our rush to destruction could be halted. First was in the late 1980's when thousands heroically were jailed for blockading abortion mills. The church wilted when the gov't came with RICO.
The second was 9/11. I had hope that the shock and horror of the attack on our soil would drive us to an examination of our national spiritual condition. Even Abe Lincoln called for prayer and fasting after his Union army suffered defeat.
That, of course did not happen in 2000.
It's a bad situation - no doubt; but we can't say we have not been warned by history. See tagline. (It's from a Dylan song)
Bamster uses Executive Orders to drive right around gridlock.
This has been a long time coming, watch this if you have the patience. It becomes very clear that we are moving rocket speed into exactly the marxist based society guys like Yuri Bezmenov predicted we would:
