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!
Obama thanks you...
Stupid is as stupid does...but I’m being redundant.
Were early votes for Republicans disposed of? Were machines front-loaded with thousands of democrat votes?
Run a RINO and conservatives stayed home...
Gee, who coulda foreseen that one?
Also—look at the races further down the ticket.
One example—the NC governor R candidate ran four points ahead of Romney. Why?
Aside from the fraudsters, they are the reason Obama won the first time, they are the reason last night came out the way it did, and will be the first to wail and demand other people pay for their stupidity.
Blaming anyone else is ridiculous, unless you thing the circular firing squad needs to be called out yet again to further fractionate the Conservatives who endure.
“And Obama is a believer?”br>
No - but he is obviously being used as a tool by Satan - not that anyone is ever out of the reach of God - unless they want to be - and Obama has sold his soul - witness his unashamed embrace of the slaughter of babies.br>
THAT is what the Roney-haters have given us.
I would never stay home. There are too many important local elections.
Get a grip...Goode voters had no effect on the election. Had they voted for Romney; Mitt still would have lost.
I voted for Romney even though I think he would have gone moderate on social issues after the election but it was because I thought it was critical to get Obama out because he was fiscally bankrupting the country and moving us toward Socialism. Romney clearly is a Capitalist and would have reversed that. And Romney is a good “turn around specialist” who could have applied his knowledge to the government.
However, Evangelicals are not necessary small government, Tea Party conservatives. We do have some “one issue” voters out there who will not vote for someone who they view as soft on abortion. I’m not going to fault Evangelicals for not voting for Romney if their issue is abortion and they don’t care as much about limiting government. I disagree with the decision but I’m not going to “scape goat” them. The Dems just have a larger voting block than Republicans, period. That’s the way it is. We have to address that.
Well, I didn’t! I actually got off of my sick bed (I have a terminal illness) and drove myself to vote. I’m asking God to take away any bitterness than I have regarding the Liberals and stay at home Evangelicals.
I happened to be lurking on a board frequented by evangelical young people (20-somethings, a few 30’s) discussing the election, and was stunned to see the overwhelming apathy and fatalism. “Why vote - it makes no difference - they’re both the same” was the prevailing opinion.
Well congratulation ! You made the Perfect the enemy of the Good.
In return those who stayed home get the responsibility for the next4 years and have no right to bitch. So when Obamacare is fully implemented, gay marriage is the norm, and Obama names 2 or 3 more judges to SCOTUS and Israel is nuked, it’s all on those who stayed home.
I didn’t vote for Obama either. Have you forgotten we have an Electoral College? My state wasn’t a swing state, I could vote my conscience and didn’t cave to pressure, especially in a state where it didn’t matter (I live in a solid red state).
Stupidity is caving religious beliefs for political gain.
Good for you. I have never stayed home for any election or primary and I never would.
Glad to hear you didn’t stay home. I never encourage anyone to do that.
My mother is terminally ill and I drove her to vote and voted as well.
I will keep you in my prayers CWC.
Are there stats to support this thesis?
Ummmm...No, you actually voted for Obama. Virgil Goode had absolutely NO chance, and you were in a critical state, so don’t come on here all holier than thou.

Ummm...No I wasn’t in a critical state, not sure where you got that idea. I am NOT in a swing state. I know VG didn’t have a chance of winning but he does reflect my views and worships the same God.
It’s America’s youth and their ignorance that won the election for Obama. They have no concept or understanding of traditional families, communism, Reaganomics, and even basic Christian values.
If Republican’s want to win in the future the message needs to be modified to appeal to them. Taking a stronger state’s rights stance on the social issues is the only way I can see fiscons and socons achieving some kind of coalition needed to defeat Democrats. It’s a numbers game now and the traditional conservative doesn’t have the needed votes without recruiting new voters.
