Posted on 11/07/2012 4:18:54 AM PST by The Ignorant Fisherman
Many of us could not imagine that Romney could lose this election, especially after four years of Obamas radical Marxism and its social and fiscal consequences that America will NEVER recover from. All the hype and all the Romney rallies; it indeed looked like a sure victory for Romney except for one equation, the Evangelical vote. We here at the IFB have talked back and forth among ourselves since the RNC convention and with others also in the know; that if the Evangelical vote did not show up on Nov. 6th the jig would be up and Romney would lose big and indeed he has.
Remember, the GOP and Romney gave NO place to the Evangelical vote at the RNC convention. They outright snubbed us and that act rubbed Evangelicals the wrong way.
Remember, the GOP and Romney gave NO place to the Evangelical vote at the RNC convention. They outright snubbed us and that act rubbed Evangelicals the wrong way. The Evangelical vote consists of the TRUE social and moral conservatives of the party (i.e., the Right). Romney and the GOP also gave very little time to the Tea Party who is the heart of the grass root movement and the engine of the Party! The viewer ratings for the 2012 RNC convention were way down, some 40% and many of us- including myself - did not watch one lick of it. Why should we have? We knew what we were getting and many of us felt dissd being left out as we were. That in its self should have set off warning bells to the RNC but in all honesty many of us who are Evangelicals were still going to vote for Romney holding our nose. It is our duty as Believers and an Americans to be salt and light (Matt. 5:13-16) and even though Romney was who he was; he was the better choice still and the lesser of the two evils for our nation. We were not going to trust in a Romney win but that a Romney win would slow down the final deterioration of our nation.
Many Evangelicals who voted for Bush in 2000 and in 2004 felt betrayed by his agreeing with and passing many of the Marxist policies of the progressive Left. To this day it still has left a bad taste in our mouth and many have NOT forgotten it. Evangelicals felt betrayed and many did not vote for McCain in 2008 which gave Marxist Obama the victory. When you add the convention snub of Romney and the GOP that was the straw that broke the elephants back.

Now we come to today, the day after the election and we once more again see that the Evangelical vote has stayed home; and in doing so have given Obama another four years to finish the job of transforming our nation and fundamentally changing our culture and way of life which includes the elimination of sound biblical Christianity. I know I am going to get a ton of hate mail for this statement, but SHAME ON YOU for sitting home and not choosing to be light and exercising your God given right to vote (Matt. 5:13-16)! I know all sides of this argument and there is still absolutely NO excuse (Matt. 5:13-16). Your self righteous pride, biblical ignorance and foolishness has open wide the door now for Christian persecution in our nation and the end of the freedoms we have for the furtherance of the Gospel. My friends, indeed the Day of the Lord is at hand, but WOE to any who seek to bring it about who call on the Name of Jesus Christ by being idol and slothful.This is NOT a sanctification matter and God will hold you accountable for hiding your light and voice.
In the end, this 2012 election has revealed without a shadow of a doubt that the Evangelical element has lost its salt and light and that America has absolutely no problem in FULL LIGHT re-electing a radical progressive secular Marxists to reign over us.

I think of Samuel when all of Israel wanted a king and not the Lord (1 Sam. 8). It broke his heart and rightly so! He knew what was coming. Thus America in this election has said quite loudly that we DO NOT want the God given freedom to exercise what our Founding Fathers envisioned, which was based on the Laws of Nature and of Natures God. In doing so we have REJECTED the Judeo/ Christian values and ideals which once made this country great. We have now as a nation fully taken on the mantle of Lawlessness and the spirit of Anti Christ as our nations ideology and culture.
Indeed, we as Evangelicals will now see what we must surely endure under lawless administration of Barack H. Obama and many Evangelicasl will be sifted and found wanting. That there... you can take to the bank!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
Mitt Romney was the guy, who lost to the last guy, who lost to Obama.
Thank the RNC, they are the idiots once again.
Most of you people have no voice, none! You are sheep for the RNC. You would vote for Lassie for President if he was the nominee. You are exactly the “Black vote” for the RNC. And you do not have the resources to ever realize it.
Can wait to see the next garbage that will get your support in 2016.
I have noticed anomalies as well. Looking at the results for North Dakota, it seems odd that 55+% Republican votes, from the presidential race down ticket only departed from that trend in the Senate race. How many voters were likely to cross party lines in the Senate Race, yet vote Republican in all else?
“God used pagans to break Isreal and get them to repent. Why cant God use Obama the same way?” br>
Because our time is running out - we will not make it to 2016 - meanwhile babies will continue to be slaughtered. br>
“Your comment that this was the last chance to turn this nation around shows a lack of faith in God on your part.”br>
There also is a time to be a realist - God will not continue to allow us to mock Him - we will be judged - and that time is near. His judgements on Israel were severe - and that is waht we are bringing on ourselves.br>
Meanwhile we allow Satan to slaughter our innocent children as we ogle our 401Ks and our fine cars and toys.
But the first cup of the day is nice
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
so basically you helped a Muslim that worships the false demon god,
- - - - - -
I KNOW the ‘fruits’ of Mormonism and I know their motivations. I also know their false gods. I USED TO BE ONE OF THEM.
They are just as lost as any other non-Christian regardless of what the world perceives as their ‘good works’ which are done for their OWN exaltation rather than the glory of God. Mormonism is MUCH MUCH MUCH closer to Islam than it is Christianity.
BTW, that verse is speaking about FALSE PROPHETS (like Joseph Smith), not the works of believers. If you are going to quote the Bible, check the context.
Finally, Glen Beck supports Mitt in part because they are both Mormon. I wouldn’t trust a thing Beck says because I know and can filter through his words and the Mormon meanings and doctrines.
I feel just fine. I didn’t help EITHER of them get elected, and I didn’t further EITHER of their false gods and my conscience is perfectly clear before my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you did not vote for Romney, you voted for the Kenyan dumba$$!
And you would be wrong
And you would be wrong
Romney was not my first choice (or second, third, or forth). And my initial lack of support for him had nothing to do with his religion.
But once it became clear he was going to be the nominee, I was behind him 100 percent.
To be honest, I was more turned off by “Christians” who spent all their time bashing him because of his religion... the “magic underpants”..... the multiple wives..... the planet (whatever its name was)......etc. It was nauseating.
Number one, they helped to re elect Obama by their constant bashing of Romney and his religion. Secondly, they probably scared more people away from Jesus than they attracted.
Yeah, yeah, just as I posted. Only the right kind of Christian, like you, is chosen and worthy. Are you sure you want to associate with those of us who are deceived by Satan?
voted - why? ready to point fingers and affix blame?
yes Romney was shoved down our throats - but he ran a classy campaign with honor and dignity befitting the office.
- - - - -
No, because I wanted to point out that the Evangelicals here didn’t stay home.
He didn’t fight, he had opportunity to counter Obama and didn’t, it wasn’t a classy campaign it was a weak one.
You may well be right.
So the Evangelicals are pro abortion and gay marriage? Who knew?
Im surprised you didnt vote for Jesus then!! Youve got NOTHING Reaganesque about you...he had common sense and brains!
- - - - -
Jesus wasn’t on my ballot.
And Reagan also stood for his beliefs and didn’t cave. Exactly what I did. I also have common sense and brains which is why I warned ALL of you that Mitt COULD not WIN long before the RNC convention.
I’m not the one that fell for the media and GOPe lies about Mitt who said he was ‘electable’.
If you did not vote for Romney, you voted for the Kenyan dumba$$!
- - - - - -
Wrong. As I have had to point out repeatedly to all of you who failed Civics class, we have an ELECTORAL COLLEGE, not a popular democracy. My state is not a swing state and we do have more than one party on our ballot. I didn’t vote for Obama any more than I voted for Mitt, or Mickey Mouse, or Gary Johnson.
We also had this one lady come in with a florida ID with a Virginia address and a smudged hologram....lol..she didn't get to vote, but maybe in chicago they would have let her vote.
Thank God for coffee, eh? I haven’t been to bed yet, too wound up to sleep. I’ll crash in a couple of hours.
Yeah, this is why Willard lost the heavily evangelical Northeast and West coast, only prevailing in the heavily secular, Catholic and Jewish Bible Belt.
If you need a sarc tag you are pretty damned stupid, but so is the premise.
And getting flamed for standing on my principles isn’t helping with the sleep factor either.
I hope all those who chose not to vote for Mitt Romney, whoever you are, will enjoy the new Amerika under Obama. You will probably be receiving thank you letters for giving him the opportunity to change the Supreme Court. As my many Ukrainian neighbors have said, we fled the old Soviet Union for the Heaven that is America—why would Americans choose to follow that path? As our society begins to crumble under us, I hope the struggles your children and grandchildren will endure won’t upset you too much. They’ll be living in a very different America.
