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!
...said Sentinel, as the God-mocking Marxist in the White House won four more years to mock God.
Goode did not change anything.
Johnson lost Romney three states......good grief read the numbers.
I live in NY where my vote for president is always a throw away vote. My vote NEVER counts because the rest of the state put together cannot overcome the momentum of NYC.
I voted third party as well, as did a number of others I know.
I don't know the final numbers, but I don't have a doubt that even if EVERYONE who didn't vote for obama voted for Romney with 0 third party votes, obama would still have won.
You can lose the attitude. I finally voted in a way I wouldn't have to answer to my Maker for. It was a protest vote only, but I could not pull the lever for Romney.
Maybe if the GOP had endorsed a real conservative, things would have been different.
OTOH, this country has rejected God on so many levels, that God has finally given it what it wants. We're just caught in the fallout.
This day was coming when this country was founded and nobody wants to be the ones to see it, but we're here and it's ours to deal with and now what we have to do is decide what's next.
What this has also shown me is that this world is close to the end times. It's ripe to embrace the real antichrist since it's embraces his forerunner.
Since they've voted for obama, they'll welcome the antichrist with open arms.
“Are you telling us that God could use a Mitt Romney, but He absolutely can’t — as in NONE at all — use Barack Obama for His purposes?”
We (Believers) all know what God’s plan is - we just don’t know the time-table.
God IS using Obama - but using him to judge us and not to bring us restoration. America is toast - this was probably our last chance - a Pro-life VP - new Pro-life judges - etc - all gone.
God threw us a life-line and we chose not to hold on - because it wasn’t a “perfect” life-line. We have made our choice - we choose the culture of death - and God will honor that - we will get death - lots and lots of it.
You and I look at the presidency differently.
For you to vote for a candidate, he has to be a Godly leader worthy to be followed.
To me, he simply has to be an honorable employee and a good steward of our American heritage.
Who do you want doing brain surgery on your child? A doctrinally sound born again King James Version only Christian who does not cut his grass on Sundays? Or would you want the best doctor available?
The gravest danger to our constitution was a CULT with a history of trying to squelch dissent and criticism taking over a second third of Government.
If we "Christians" had elected Romney do you think God would have intervened on our behalf when the predictable attacks on the first amendment began ?
We did not, and therefore are entitled to plead for his help against the unGodly communist in the white house. The 6 million you are so angry at right now are THE ONES WHO SAVED YOUR BUTT !
I, sir, am the one who stood my ground. You no-experience-but-KNOW-IT-ALL-about-mormonism-anyway types continue to ignore the warnings of those of us who have been sent to warn you at your own peril.
I didn't vote Obama into office, and I didn't vote a cult leader either. That is the limit of my Godly duty, and I stand firm.
The GOP left Christianity, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
0bama is a cult leader!!!
I guess you forgot the separation of church and state..
Goode (ex-Republican), Johnson (ex Republican)and the stupid people that voted for them have the devastation of our country on their heads.
You are a FRAUD.....Romney could have beaten the MUSLIM Obama if “Evangelicals” would have voted for him.<P.Christians live in the real world and choose from their OPTIONS....others live in a fairyland.
“Do you somehow think that God was not mocked by His very people who treat idolatry lightly???”
We were looking for a competent CEO - not a religeous leader - we already have one of those - Jesus.
I understand your animosity towards Mormonism - I am not assailing that.
Analogy: Would not Egypt be better off with a non-believer like Mubarak who kept the Muzzies at bay and allowed the Christians free worship (and the ability to convert) - or are they better now that the Christians are being killed and expelled - WHO wiil preach the Gospel to those people now?
Maybe you’re right - maybe it will be better now as the persecution of Christians in Amerika heats up and we are forced into home-churches. It will eventually happen anyway - I just didn’t want it to be now.

And if we as a nation repent we will have God's help keeping him in check. Conservatives should be grateful that God's people did not anger God by turning from him out of fear.
Let's just be open here....The bible is clear, the day will come when true Christians will be lined up for execution, and it will be both the Obama types AND the Rove/Romney types swinging the blades.
The enemy will always vote against God.
We did not. Come what may.
I’m beginning to think that Evangelicals are both anti-CAtholic and anti-Mormon.....they don’t think either are CHRISTIAN!! Catholics not Christian....LAUGHABLE!!
My vote would not have mattered, I live in Ill-Annoy, but I voted for Romney anyway.
I disagree with:
- polygamy - physical AND spiritual polygamy - that’s a VALUE
- deceptive messaging - i.e. “milk before meat”
- abortion - whenever it’s convenient is the lds policy
F’m the capitulating so called self proclaimed conservatives who supported Romney “the only guy who can win”.
It is people like you glock that nominated a f’n liberal again.
So fall off your high horse, and go the hell away.
True Christianity preaches the cross of Christ.
Neither Obama nor Romney preached the cross of Christ, although both claimed to be Christian.
Both of them were willing to bend, twist, mask, distort and lie about the Name of Christ.
...I voted for Virgil Goode.
Brother, I think if you consider that Romney has governed TO THE LEFT OF BILL CLINTON on gun control, gay marriage, socialist healthcare etc, you will agree that he is and never was a "good steward of our american heritage".
Romney is a bald faced draft dodging RINO, with a lifetime of CULT liar training !
The race was lost during the primary, and WE WARNED THEM THEM !!
