Romney Loss - Evangelicals "Again" Stayed Home
IFB ^ | 11/7/12

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 Obama’s 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 “diss’d” 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.

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.

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 Nature’s 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 nation’s 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!

Read my posting history if you're interested in what I believe.

The one hint I'll give is that you are far, far off-base.

Enjoy your president. You gave him to us.

I have never denied that Romney was not the best nominee. But after the primary was over, it was our duty to support him to prevent Obama from being reelected.

I just love (sarcasm) the self anointed finger pointers.

For the record, I voted yesterday for Ryan/Romney and Todd Akin. I am NOT a one legged conservative. I do not play this brutish game of claiming I can be fiscally conservative and socially liberal. It was beyond stupid to let Romney be our nominee. Obama’s media crew along with his rented anarchists that poisoned the national waters on Romney by playing class warfare in OccupyWallStreet street theater.

At the same time ‘big’ business is portrayed as the devil's workshop, while Obama and his crew sup with the Warren Buffets of the world.

Liberalism is our enemy and the majority of Americans suffer varying degrees of that mindset. How about the over representation of Catholics that wrote Barry's agenda? Why they penned his social justice agenda and probably are on the road to sainthood.

Strange isn't it that Harry Reid a Mormon keeps his power and Mitt Romney would may live his personal life like a conservative but speaks with a forked tongue promoting liberal ideology lost big time. And you have the nerve to jut out your jaw and accuse people for so called actions that you have not demonstrated any proof exist.

I think you picked the perfect FR name.

I’m just basing it on your posts here and I doubt I’m that far off, if I were you wouldn’t use the language you do, nor would you attack a sweet Christian lady like you have.

Our duty is to GOD not man. It wasn’t our duty to support a lying, liberal, evil cultist.

It is the GOPe fault we got Romney and you helped get Obama re-elected.

Oh, bull pies.
It is people like you that put a liberal called Romney as the nominee.
Take responsibility for what you did, and then get off the phone.

Oh, of course you do.
It would have been better if you had just been honest with your mormonISM, (psst that’s not one of their values - honesty)

Goode had no chance. You might as well have voted for Mickey Mouse. The ONLY two candidates with any kind of chance were Obama or Romney. You blew it, you punted, and because of people like you, Romney missed out on a viable vote which would have given him the edge.

So your ten people 40% voted, that’s about how many people voted overall.......so no big deal, your friends are just average.

There were only two viable candidates with any chance of winning. Obama or Romney. You either support a Marxist, or you don’t. Any other vote is a wasted vote. No other candidate got their message out to convince others of their platform. Because of anti-Mormon bigots, now we get Obama to decide all kinds of things like the Supreme Court nominees, etc.

As Drudge’s numbers stand now, Obama’s vote was down 13.5% and the Republican ticket down 4.2%. Overall votes were down 9.2%.

That’s 9.5 million Obama voters staying home and 2.5 million McCain voters.

It does seem like whoever stayed home in 2008 did it again this time, plus a lot more. Out of the new batch of stay-at-home voters, 80% of them were disgruntled Obama voters. So Romney won the turnout depression contest by a landslide, but it wasn’t enough.

F’off. What a moronic reply.
Because of people like you the GOPe nominated a guy worse than McCain - received fewer votes.
Stop blaming people who are real conservatives and start putting the blame where it belongs the idiot self proclaimed conservatives who screamed “Romney is the only guy who can win”.
So f’off and next time listen to the people who know what the hell is going on.

We were looking for a competent CEO - not a religeous leader - we already have one of those - Jesus.

#1...I didn't know that those who portend to be "gods" do so only on Sundays...as if you could compartmentalize that...

#2...I didn't know that you could compartmentalize character -- as if the arrogance & hubris contained in the personal identity disorder of thinking you are divine had NOTHING whatsoever to do with leadership. Totally ludicrous.

#3... I didn't know that being THE leader of the free world apparently had NOTHING to do with discernment -- or lack of it...gullibility to deception & vulnerability to deception is apparently a useless quality when determining the leader of the free world, eh???

Look at the numbers. The evangelicals sat it out. I didn't vote for Romney in the primary, but once he won, it was him or obama.

Many evangelicals seemed content to let it be obama. So you F' off.

Nope, Romney lost because the GOPE and people like you pushed him on the conservative Republicans.
Take the blame - it’s on you.
