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!
“Im surprised you didnt vote for Jesus then!! Youve got NOTHING Reaganesque about you...he had common sense and brains!”
Those who refused to vote for Romney out of religious purity have deliberately contributed to inflicting our country with the political incarnation of Barabbas for another four years (provided he doesn’t simply decide to declare himself president for life). Obamacare, with its taxpayer-funded abortion and death panels, is now impossible to repeal.
No Elsie is just a wee lil ol girl...
You must mean Willard...
Now hes the durnest big ol mean Mormon hater of Christians ya ever did meet...
PINGy to dear little Buttercup Elsie
he didnt hate America and he doesnt love Islam in all its forms
Well theres no proof that Willard doesnt hate America...
He at least has in his lifetime had a lukewarm disregard for our nation at best...
That foul attitude led to his dodging the draft at least 2 times and running off to France the rich man’s son’s Canada...
and While he worships Joseph Smith who did love Islam in most if not all forms, again there is no proof he has ever denounced the religion and thus the teachings of the inventor of Mormonism...
The “American Mohammad” is the accepted icon and possible ‘god’ and ‘savior’ and ‘judge’ of the Mormon religion...
“It will be with us ‘Joseph Smith or the sword’” (Joseph Smith 1838)
What does it matter that people did not know he was a mormon. Romney is a practitioner of mormonISM he makes no moves outside that matrix.
You are nuts. Mitt has a ton of faults from a conservative perspective, but he doesn’t hate America.
Romney claimed he would support the ‘real’ Israel during any military conflicts...
the Mormons claim to be the real Israel...
They claim that Jerusalem where their jesus is going to return is in MISSOURI...
The Mormons are ever expecting miliary attacks and persecution because they are mormons...
They declared war against the US governnment in their early history...
and Joseph Smith threatened Congress with destruction because they wouldnt give in to his bizarre demands..
I dont think they ever had a superseding doctrine on that “divine” prophecy...
You really know nothing about mormonISM do you.
Joseph Smith was clear obey or the sword.
Before you defend mormonISM LEARN about it.
Exactly like that, my dear.
Screw the Evangelicals F em all. Ban me for all i care.
***If you’re so offended by Evangelicals, what are you doing on a site that is evangelical in nature? Look at the founder statement, the very first thing mentioned: “As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God... “
This statement by the founder used to be prominent on the front page of the forum when you load it:
As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc
At the other end of the political spectrum, nearly eight-in-ten white evangelical Protestants voted for Romney (79%), compared with 20% who backed Obama. Romney received as much support from evangelical voters as George W. Bush did in 2004 (79%) and more support from evangelicals than McCain did in 2008 (73%). Mormon voters were also firmly in Romneys corner; nearly eight-in-ten Mormons (78%) voted for Romney, while 21% voted for Obama. Romney received about the same amount of support from Mormons that Bush received in 2004. (Exit poll data on Mormons was unavailable for 2000 and 2008.)
Compared with religiously unaffiliated and Jewish voters on the left and white evangelicals and Mormons on the right, Catholics and white mainline Protestants were more evenly divided. Among white mainline Protestants in the exit poll, 54% voted for Romney, while 44% supported Obama. This is virtually identical to the 2008 election, when 55% of white mainline Protestants voted for McCain and 44% backed Obama.
White Catholics, by contrast, swung strongly in the Republican direction relative to 2008. Nearly six-in-ten white Catholics (59%) voted for Romney, up from 52% who voted for McCain in 2008. Three-quarters of Hispanic Catholics voted for Obama, and Catholics as a whole were evenly divided in 2012 (50% voted for Obama, while 48% backed Romney) - http://www.pewforum.org/Politics-and-Elections/How-the-Faithful-Voted-2012-Preliminary-Exit-Poll-Analysis.aspx
Listen you stupid little shite.
Romney lost repeat lost because he is a LIBERAL and its people like you who butt kissed him to the nomination.....place the blame where it belongs - on so called self proclaimed conservatives who have no spine and caved at the first light.
We the people who knew Romney and what he is said he can not win........yet you cried and screamed him to the nomination “he is the only guy who can win”....well you know what we were right and you stupid fracking self proclaimed conservatives were WRONG!
Trying ti reason with shite is like trying to reason with jello - no point.
He already has - I run a ministry (to those who have left Mormonism) and am self-empolyed as is everyone in my family.
And Romney wasn’t the messiah and wouldn’t have done much either and frankly, I wasn’t in a swing state so my vote didn’t affect the election at all.
That was for sure the reasoning of some.
So, they made the choice to not vote for a Mormon (who, incidentally, have morals and integrity) and allow a socialist (I'll give him the benefit of the doubt regarding being a Muslim) win?
They deserve what they're getting as much as those who voted for 0bama!!!
What? Do you think that same-sex “marriage” doesn’t already exist in given states in this country & certain countries around the world? AND IN MA THANKS TO ROMNEY
Or that Obamacare hasn’t already been imposed? BASED UPON ROMNEYCARE!
Or that taxpayer-funded abortions — including taxpayer-funded abortions via RomneyCare — hasn’t been a reality for quite some time? AGAIN, Back to ROMNEY.
As far as the claims of being morally superior, Dr. S has shown over and over again his attitude of ‘moral superiority’ because he compromised.
Those of us who stood our ground, did so because we are HUMBLED before the ALMIGHTY GOD and not bow to the fear of this world which is fleeting.
You absolutely do NOT despise Obama. I live out in the PA countryside and would have WALKED the 3 miles to the church where I vote, if necessary.
- - - -
Well you can’t read my mind and you only had to go 3 miles?! I live rurally and had to go 32 MILES to vote. THIRTY TWO!!! And I did so.
I couldn’t live in PA, too many compromising RINOS like yourself.
I dispise them both equally because both Romney and Obama are two sides of the same coin. They are BOTH evil incarnate. I’m just smart enough not to have bought into the media lies that Romney could win.
Listen before you defend mormonISM LEARN about it.
Blame the people the so called self proclaimed conservatives that hosted this liberal on the GOPe and stop blaming people who are actually conservatives with standards and morals.
Good lord that nice guy in the lunch room is not and has never been the true face of mormonISM.
Romney lost repeat lost because he is a LIBERAL and its people like you who butt kissed him to the nomination.....
***WTF are you talking about? I was against Romnutz all the way. I even stopped posting on FR when JimRob endorsed him.
place the blame where it belongs - on so called self proclaimed conservatives who have no spine and caved at the first light.
***You mean, like JimRob? Like all those CINOs who started telling me to get off FR because I wasn’t being ‘polite’ to JimRob when I pointed out that he said he would never vote for such a lying, baby-killing, gun-grabbing statist?
We the people who knew Romney and what he is said he can not win........yet you cried and screamed him to the nomination he is the only guy who can win
***Really, honestly, WTF are you talking about?
....well you know what we were right and you stupid fracking self proclaimed conservatives were WRONG!
***I never supported Romnutz. I voted for Tom Hoefling and a straight republican downticket, here in California where it never would have mattered. You seem to need a clue.
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.
- - - - -
You seriously need to take a civics class. First, Mickey Mouse wasn’t on my state’s ballot (we don’t have write ins)but Virgil Goode was. Second, I don’t live in a swing state and popular vote doesn’t matter. Third, I didn’t blow it, you just hate that I didn’t compromise. Fourth, I am NOT a Republican any longer (I left because of Romney) so I voted for my party’s candidate. I am a CHRISTIAN First, a Conservative second and I don’t vote for liberals like Romney.
You are the ones that blew it, because you are the ones who nominated a guy who people have been saying for YEARS COULD NOT WIN.
I stood my ground. Apparently you have no such convictions.
