11-6-2012: The Day America Changed

November 6, 2012 is the day America changed.
8 to 9 percent unemployment is the new normal. It’s good enough. 46 million people on food stamps is OK. It shows we care. Debt spending is good. It will get paid off some day and if not, our kids can worry about it. Trillion dollar deficits make sense.

Socialized medicine is good. It will cost more, but did you honestly believe it wouldn’t? It doesn’t matter what you were told. Catholics should pay for abortions. Sandra Fluke is a prophet. Abortions and birth control should be free. We should fund abortions overseas, too.

The First Lady should be allowed to blow millions on lavish vacations. The White House parties should cost millions, too. The president should play as much golf and basketball as he pleases. They deserve it. They work hard.  They’re Democrats.

Greedy Americans should pay more taxes and millions of Americans who pay no taxes should receive more free money. It’s only fair. Businesses can afford to pay more taxes too. That’s what they teach you in school, right? We all know the Bush tax cuts that brought the deficit from $450 billion to $175 billion in four years and created millions of jobs didn’t work. Obama said so. And did you know Obama created 5 million jobs? Who cares how he came up with that number. In September he even created 600,000 part-time jobs somewhere. And, don’t you dare question his math.

Benghazi was a protest, or a terrorist attack. Obama said so from the beginning. Who cares anyway. Things like that happen all the time. And the media never covered anything up to help the president either. Right, 60 Minutes?

Al-Qaeda is dead or on the run.

We pushed the restart button with Russia. Putin is a democrat. He can be trusted. What do you mean there are Russian subs in the Gulf and off the east coast?

It’s not racist that 97% of blacks vote Democrat. It’s racist if you are white and vote Republican.

The media is your friend. The mainstream media is not biased. They would never hide anything from you.

Katrina was a national embarrassment.  It was Bush’s fault.  Sandy was not so bad.  And Obama did a great job focusing on it from between campaign stops.  The people are not suffering so much or we would have heard about it in the news.

America was once the land of the free. Now we want to be told what to do. More government is good. We want stuff.
On Tuesday America changed.

But the fight is not over.

God help us in the days ahead.

    Here in Vermont we not only saw the coming of the Unites Socialist States of America, we have all with just one election and no public referendum been shoved into a single payer health system, no matter what insurance you may or may not have through your employer, AND have instituted a “sales tax” on EVERYTHING – your hair cut, your attorney’s fees, everything will be taxed in Vermont shortly after the first of the year.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Romney got 3.5 million fewer votes than McCain.

    There are 23 million missing voters if you accept 7% election over election growth.

    Something stinks.

    There are millions of missing Republican votes.

    THINK ABOUT THIS: The vote totals this year are actually lower than 2004!

    Mitt is correct 47% wants free stuff and they think they are entitled to it. We will just be ruled by mob who wants free stuff from gov.

    Obama ‘s vote total is down about 10% from 2012. Despite everything, Republicans simply did not show up to vote on ED.

    The Untied States of America has voted; the monied elites and their know-nothing sycophants have carried the day. The closeted Socialist/Communist/Muslim occupying the renamed Offal Office sits like some vulture waiting for a carcass to age.

    President Valerie Jarrett, through her wholly-owned mouthpiece, Barack Obama, indicates Israel is own her own. Any attempt at assistance will be considered an act of treason. The Treasury department will re-locate to Bejing while the Pentagon will be holding bake sales to generate funds to pay what remains of a once powerful military force.

    An evil, Godless administration has been put in charge again by Godless people. They have sown to the wind and will reap the whirlwind. To bad we all get caught up in their malfeasance.

  • theBuckWheat

    Be prepared for lawless granting of favor and preference, where the Leviathan government can print enough of the money it spends that it doesn’t have to ask the voters for permission. We rightly complain about crony capitalism, but know that there must always be a crony politician or a crony bureaucrat to make that possible. So, we had cronyism under the cover of “stimulus”, which gave us Solyndra and many failed green energy companies. But now we will also have crony ideologues where agitators and community organizers will find common cause with those inside government so they will become one in the same for the sake of public policy.

    The agenda of the Obama Administration’s second term can was written by F.A. Hayek in the Road to Serfdom, especially Chapter Ten, Why the Worst Get on Top.

  • squeaky

    “…employer, AND have instituted a “sales tax” on EVERYTHING – your hair cut, your attorney’s fees, everything will be taxed in Vermont shortly after the first of the year.” hopefully reality will bite them as a massive hangover. a bad decision can take a nano-second to make but a bad result will follow you thru life like a dark cloud [minus the silver lining]. i don’t have a filter between what i think and what i say so it should be interesting. especially as all those empty promises come up empty. i’m practicing my surprised look now.

  • MN Jim

    There was no wait at my polling place at 4 pm or 6:30 pm. Other elections had lines out the door and down the sidewalk. I don’t know where everyone went, but have to believe the reports that less Republicans showed up.

    My feeling is that if we cannot win agains the most inept, corrupt administration in our lifetime, we might asd well give up.

  • Tom

    Can we now stop putting “reasonable, Harvard” types up against MMA fighters? For once I would like to see a conservative pound the crap out of the other guy in debates, on TV, and door to door. The liberal nastiness works. Lies work. Can we quit with the moral high ground and “Christian” tactics during the race and put that hat on after we win? The American Idol crowd is easily fooled and quickly forgets the lies told. Blame the Republican Party. I tend to think the US is still more conservative than liberal.

  • Hard pill to swallow i know………my guess is all those idiots who voted for more doom and gloom will be begging for someone to help save them in another year or two, cause HELL is coming that’s for sure.

  • The Elector of Saxony

    This day was a long time coming, and the long march that began in the 1930’s is finally finished. To be fair, the Men of the South tried to save the USA from Communism. They warned that your kids minds were being polluted by race music and hippie ideals. They warned you about Martin Luther Con-Job, but you wanted to sing KumBaya and not fight for your Culture for fear of being called “the R-word”. The Civil Rights Act put the nail in the coffin. The anti-White immigration bills of the 1960’s hammered it home. The nation is becoming browner and blacker and there is simply no way to overcome that trend. In a few years, Texas will be lost forever as a Red State due to unfettered Hispanic immigration, and if Obama has his way it will be next year. There may never be another Republican President after that happens. Now, we’ll get 20 million new American Citizens with shiny voting cards, most of whom are illiterate in every language, but no matter. A few years of public schooling and generous EBT cards, Sec. 8 free housing, and free health care on the taxpayer and they’ll all turn into little Issac Newtons, little Thomas Paine’s. Because there’s no difference in people, we’re all just the same. Perhaps they’ll vote for fiscal responsibility, hard work, delayed gratification, and lower taxes on businesses, just like all the black voters do. What? They just vote for more free stuff? Why, I never!

    It’s the electorate, stupid. Unemployment, our allies, National Security, none of these things matter one whit to the Obama voter. It’s a “gibs me dat” society we’re living in and there’s no going back. Once a people have lost their moral fiber, it rarely returns. Ask the late Julio-Claudian Emperors. Look at Europe. Moribund societies continue to decline and decay. We’ll be like Europe for a the next 50 years or so, then more like Mexico or Brazil for 50, and then the electrical grid is going to stop working because no one will remember how to fix it. Then, we’ll be Zimbabwe. Enjoy your diverse, multicultural future, America. Liberty is dead, Western Civilization is dead. The last, best hope of Mankind is dead.

    We as a country are f#####!

  • Time

    I am convinced, without hesitation believe that this election was long decided. That we as a nation are no longer controlled by us, the people. Our votes last night mean nothing. Our voices mean nothing. The votes were rigged. The system was rigged, machines and everything flowing from Washington was rigged, to set up a win for Obama. Even with the senate , seats that were kept, lost and not taken it is remarkable. They made sure that the Dems kept the senate. This was their intent. To block everything. The numbers they kept so close to make it appear that this race true, but, every where you went in this nation people were not dancing in the streets for the One, their numbers were not there. Look at his not so rock concerts, they were more then half empty. Yes something was very, very wrong last night when those numbers started coming in. The machines, software were per- determined and that you can count on. Say goodbye America and hello to Amika..

    This whole election was about killing the Tea Party.

    Wendell Wilkie who lost to FDR

    ” I would rather lose in a cause that I know some day
    will triumph than to triumph in a cause that I know some day will fail.”

    The history of republican progressive elites intentionally losing goes waaay back.

    In this case for Romney…” I would rather lose in a cause to make the first black President an historical triumph than triumph and cause affirmative action communism to become an historical failure. ”

    Romney has ALWAYS been in tight with the very people who gave us Barak Obama. His re-election was won in the primary. The election was a sham to weaken the conservative movement.

  • Objective Analysis

    Guys we should have known that they were going to re-elect Obama (by fraud if need be). Soros told us that he like Romney because Romney is a liberal version of Obama. The Progressives in both parties (Democrats and Republicans) took our country away from us. They perfected the ultimate Coup on us.

    Now we are all Wards of the State and if we don’t abide by the New World Order, we will be exterminated. God help us.

    Total voters down over 10% from 2008. Has that ever happened before?

  • Sam Stone

    I said early on in this race that at my age and place in life, if Obama wins I will work to become one of the 47%.

    The battle is no longer at the political level. We must retake the logistical outputs of the socialist ideology.

    The GOP is dead to me.
    The DNC has long been dead to me.

    It is the citizen that must now overcome this tyranny. I fear it is too late, and I have very little strength left to fight.

  • squeaky

    “I’m firing 30 people today and lockin…” and never having created a job themselves and not knowing the cost, labor, time intensity etc of making that business viable will be lost on them as they search for more neferious reasons [expecting you to man up and work for nothing so that they can keep their jobs, benefits, etc.] for you to close. sacred cows all of them.

    If you own a small business and are thinking about selling or closing, better do it before the increased taxes take effect on Jan 1. The trouble is, finding a buyer who is stupid enough to invest in a business now.

    What I’d like to see are union members trying to organize the fired workers that resulted from this administration’s policies.

    As to the wonderment as to why there were record lines to vote but voting was down, if they were all Dems, it would have been a landslide. I’m thinking some technical companies should take a large sampling of electronic voting machines and reverse engineer and debug the software to see if your unverifiable electonic vote actually did what you the voter expected it to.

    The great American experiment ….failed, but why would I think it would be otherwise?

    If you are a believer or not the Bible gives us a good insight into groups of people and their willfulness to choose what is the worst for them.

    God walks with Adam and Eve….Adam and Eve choose to walk alone.

    Israel is led by God Himself for years, but the Israelites clamor and beg for a king….they get Saul.

    Further, I have often wondered what it was like in Germany as the people embraced Hitler and National Socialism, and Russia as the people embraced Communism. I must believe it is much like it is in America today.

  • Changed ? is to mild of a word to use, died is more like it….The American voters have proved to me that they want to be baby-sat by Big Government and are willing to trade in freedom & liberty for free stuff and a chance to be lazy and unproductive.
    Now that we can not trust anyone in government , and our own population (over 51% of it anyway) it is time to only worry about what matters the most our families. I still love my country and would do anything for her, but as long as this commie in chief is our president and there are idiots out there who cannot think for themselves and believe in all the lies, I will do the only thing I can do while this disaster is in office for 4 more years, that is to take care of my family by any means possible….We are so screwed..God help us…..

  • averagemelon

    At 1:00 A.M., my child returned home from working at a FOX affiliate sobbing at the news. I warned her what would probably happen and I was not wrong. The vote has been wrestled from this nation, I am certain.

    The blame is placed upon all the adults. Look what we have done to this nation. We have turned our backs on the very things we hold so dear for a long, long time. We thought it wouldn’t matter too much. We did not wake up in time and the penalty is going to be severe.

    We are going to be asked to endure. It will be VERY hard on us. The world is going to be immersed in evil and we are its fodder. Turn back to your God or perish.

Millions of dead Russians under Stalin spoke to you, but you refused to listen. Many of the living who escaped communism and emigrated to the US tried to warn you, but you refused to listen. Now, when you find yourself shackled under a totalitarian regime, and you will, remember it is what you voted for; what you wished for; what you got.

  • Daisy

    More than a third of the ballots cast at the precinct where I worked were new or address changes (WI allows same day registration).

    States need to 1) clean up their voter rolls so the dead cannot vote.
    2) Double check all “same day” registrations to make sure they didn’t double vote.
    3) Use the voter rolls to check on tax forms filed. AFter all, if you “live” here, you need to file your taxes.

  • BurmaShave

    In response to someone nattering on another site about how the election — and the nation — was lost I offered this:

    The election was lost decades ago when the media stopped watching out for the nation, and sided essentially en masse for the Democratic Party.

    America, as an exceptional nation standing for individual freedom, is over.

    Congress has become more and more impotent. I would say we are at a point approximately corresponding to when Caesar Augustus “relieved” the Roman Senate of its responsibilities. Don’t expect Obama to pay much attention to Congress from here on out. Better get used to executive orders being the order of the day, along with ObamaCare cum death panels.

    Hoping for a Republican Party and an election to fix this mess? Good luck with that.

    It was nice while it lasted.

    (It is pretty ridiculous to expect the electorate to get the story straight with about a four hour window of sort of unfiltered Presidential debates, especially after the media has bulked up the nation with misleading disinformation for the past four years.)

  • CommieJuice

    This is over! We all prayed, God answered and he said NO! It’s that simple. This country has cancer and now it’s terminal.

    Everyone talks about this is the end, well this is the beginning of the end. There is nothing anyone alive can do to turn this around after the next 4 years!

    Supreme Court will be lost even more than it already is for the next generation.

    15 trillion in debt is going to be nothing compared to what the tally will be in 2016 not to mention the interest being paid to our enemies.

    Governing by fiat through executive orders will be just fine with the disgusting, vile, pathetic, paid for so-called media. Just like the last 4 years, 0bama will get a pass along with his regime. No accountability whatsoever.

    My only hopes is that every liberal haven and ghetto gets “free” abortions, free birth control for the women not the men, condoms prevent stds which is going to be needed in this scenario, free legal drugs and they lower the age for alcohol and legal drugs to 17.

    Also the in the ghettos and liberal havens I think all academic, physical and IQ requirements should be lowered for doctors, police, firefighters, lawyers and any position where life hinges on the success.

    They live in sin, they want everything free, they want to kill their own babies, they want to have all the sex they can without paying for their own contraception, they want and need test scores lowered so this trash can be considered equal. I say give it all to them, give them what they want and let them hang themselves!

    Party trumps the good of the country. The Democratic party is (and has been for some time) solely concerned with buying votes and being in power. I don’t believe that they are really stupid enough to believe that giving everyone handouts is good in the long run. But it gives them votes today. It’s all about what’ll keep them in power for the moment.

    As far as the proof? I don’t need a spreadsheet to know that driving off a cliff is harmful to my health. Only a party hack will argue with that, and there sure seems to be a lot of them. As that lefty Bob Dylan said “You don’t need a weatherman to tell which way the wind blows”.

    Braking The War Menatlity

    March 10, 1983
    by Barack Obama

    [Mark Bigelow, a graduate intern from Union Theological Seminary who works with Don to keep ARA running smoothly, agrees. “It seems that students here are fairly aware of the nuclear problem, and it makes for an underlying frustration. We try to talk to that frustration.” Consequently. the thrust of ARA is towards generating dialogue which will give people a rational handle on this controversial subject. this includes bringing speakers like Daniel ElIsberg to campus, publishing fact sheets compiled by interested faculty, and investigating the possible development of an interdisciplinary program in the Columbia curriculum dealing with peace, disarmament, and ‘world order. Tied in with such a thrust is the absence of what Don calls “a party line.”By taking an almost apolitical approach to the problem, ARA hopes to get the university to take nuclear arms issues seriously. “People don’t like having their intelligence insulted,” says Don, “so we try to disseminate infonnation and allow the individual to make his or her own decision.”]

    Regardless of the current circumstances, now is NOT a time for weak knees or a rubber spine. The path ahead is going to be very difficult. Do not go quietly into this dark night but resolve to work relentlessly to right this great wrong we have inflicted upon ourselves. The wolves will continue to nip at our heels – that is the way of the world. If you are not strong, then by all that is Holy, get to it! If you do not understand how your country was designed to work, then get to it! If your relationship with God is broken, get to it! Mother Teresa had it right and this will be my mantra for the next 48 months. ‘One day we shall all have eternity to rest.’ Now is not the time. May God bless the USA and its people and in turn may we bless this messed up world in which we live.

    Nazism is Socialism*

    by Friedrich August von Hayek
    Published in the spring of 1933

    [But the dominant feature is a fierce hatred of anything capitalistic-
    individualistic profit seeking, large scale enterprise, banks, joint-stock
    companies, department stores, “international finance and loan capital,”
    the system of “interest slavery” in general; the abolition of these is
    described as the “basis of the programme, around which everything else
    turns.” It was to this programme that the masses of the German people,
    who were already completely under the influence of collectivist ideas,
    responded so enthusiastically.

    That this violent anti-capitalistic attack is genuine, and not a mere
    piece of propaganda, becomes as clear from the personal history of
    the intellectual leaders of the movement as from the general milieu
    from which it springs. It is not even denied that many of the young
    men who today play a prominent part in it have previously been
    communists or socialists.]

  • I started my life in America back in 1925. I had a brother and a sister, both now deceased. During the Great depression we were cowboys and cowgirls on my folks ranch in Julian, California.

    At 17 I volunteered to join the Navy Air Corps in 1943 (WWII), but shortly thereafter changed that direction to pursue a medical course. I was a Navy corpsman and later a Navy Midshipman in a college training program. When the Korean War began the Navy called me back to serve with the Marines as a surgeon.

    In 1952 I left the Navy to begin a private surgical practice in Pasadena California. My older brother had served in the Army at the Battle of the Bulge. My classmates were killed in Europe and the Pacific, never complaining about what they were asked to do. Yes, this truly was the Greatest Generation.

    I later developed and held U.S. Patents on five original zsurgical implants for use in the human body. My most famous one was for the replacement of the temporomandibular joint, a technique which Mayo Clinic says corrects 95% of the osteoarthritis of that joint. I have taught this surgery around the world and innovated it and the other new and predicate devices always at my own expense. I later founded two medical device companies to carry forth the production of a couple of the devices I had innovated. I pursued approvals through tghe FDA and received such approvals, at millions of dollars of expense.
    But finally, I found our Federal Government, through the FDA regulatory body, very corrupt.

    So at age 87 I have just had my book, FDA, You Were WRONG! published and released on Amazon. It tells the story of a corrupt and overburdening regulatory body, and its effect on innovation. Stopping Innovation Stops America.

    I truly worry about what I see happening in our country and the effect it will likely have on our children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. Wake up America. We are heading down the road of other socialist states. We are losing our freedoms and complaining very little. Read my book. It will be an eye opener. May God bless America. I saw it in it’s better days.

    No more racist than a minority that votes for one of their own no matter what. Oh damn, I forgot that Blacks can’t be racist no matter how racist their actions appear. I guess having Blacks on tape saying they vote for Obama because he’s Black, while not being able to find any footage of a White saying he’s voting for Romney because he’s White, proves that it is the Whites that are racist.

    That, my friend, is why the liberals and Democrats are so full of sh#t. Unfortunately, you Democrats have brainwashed minorities into thinking that getting a handout is more important than actually succeeding in life. Give em lip service and a sandwich and they give you a vote. Of course you have to keep calling us racist in case the Blacks might start thinking that their sh***y life is the fault of the Democrats and your patronizing policies.

Conservatives will look back and likely be thankful that black hitler won a second term and went full on black hitler. History will see it as a turning point where people will say once again “never again”. Only through the blood spilled through socialism can the conservatives(aka worthless centrists) and other centrists learn the true horrors of socialism. Then and only then can we move to capitalism, freedom and peace.

    The only conservative theory that makes sense is Libertarianism. The conservative movement today says that is is for smaller government, but promotes the government telling women what they can and cannot do with their bodies. That they must have additional medical procedures prior to having their desired procedure. The conservative movement says it is for liberty, but read the comment section for plenty of examples of conservatives who want to take freedom and rights away from those who they do not like, be it for race, xenophobia, or even that part of Europe citizens ancestors come from. I could go on and on. But the reality is modern day conservatives want big government as much as liberals, they just want it to reinforce their biases instead of liberal biases. The reason that Romney lost is comments from conservative darlings like Akin and Murdock, anti women laws passed in states like VA, and xenophobic trends found in red states and on comment boards like this one. When you start by chasing away 50% of the population (female) and then create well founded fear in the 25-30% minority population, a winning strategy is not in your future.
    FYI, I consider myself liberal libertarian, an oxymoron for sure but works for me. While I was for Obama, I started out not being overly concerned if Romney won. But as the race for the Republican nomination wore on along with actions in many states directed against US citizens, I became concerned about where the Republican party was headed. And my concerns became real with comments from various pundits and candidates. I watched Romney slowly get painted into a box he could not emerge from to get closer to the center. Maybe y’all consider that selling out, but it is how one party or the other gets elected. I am concerned for gay and lesbian friends, women I know who are frightened by personhood legislation and what that means for contraceptives, for conservatives who have decided that they know what makes an American and what does not, for those who refuse to accept the results of the election (and seem to lose sight of the fact that in 4 years, Obama will be gone but the USA will still be here), and that rhetoric on both sides has begun to border on dangerous. In the words of Pogo written by a conservative political cartoonist, Walt Kelly, “we have met the enemy, and he is us”. While that addressed pollution, it applies to many different subjects. And that is where conservatives should be today.

    Obama was not far enough to the left for me. Too moderate. Obamacare was cool, but it should have been single payer. Oh well, what we got is better than nothing. I voted for Obama anyway, even if he was a little bit too far to the right for my liking.

  • The Republicans killed the Tea Partiers and the true conservatives. They Cheated Ron Paul big time in 2008 and 2012. they cheated in so many primaries. they didn’t allow RP deleghates to attend in some states and RP wasn’t allowed to speak. they met in thier own reneted space out side the convention.

    The republican elite spat on the libertarians and the RP movement. You could have won had they not stayed at home. the dems didn’t kill the Tea Party the republicans did.

    These guys know now that there is no party that will allow them a voice. Yet the Republicans actually thought they would show up and hand Romney a win?

    All the civil liberties of AMERICANS violated during the Bush years and greatly expanded upon by the current president.

    they screamed about the Bush Spending and The republicans scoffed. The Dems maybe Socialists yes, but the Republicans are the Socialism “light” Party. Don’t tell us it was congress when republicans owned it for quite some time during Bush.

    The house could have stop the debt limit raise and didn’t and now with the changes Obama put in a majority can no longer stop the debt limit increases even. romney is a globalist just like Bush senior and Bush junior and Clinton and Obama.

    CFR members are dedicated to setting up socialism in America and many Bush cabnet and Dick Cheney are CFR.

    So why should the true conservative bother to show up again knowing that once again they would be lied to? Romeny was a non starter from DAY 1. In natinal polls take pitting Ron Paul against Obama RP won everytime easily.

    So Ron Paul retired not because he wanted to but because he got tired and knows theres no poinnt to it anymore. He got kicked in the teeth time and again by Republicans. Ron Paul supporters were treated with utter distain. Then Republicans cry like banshees when they election did turn out for them.

    Further there is even more upset because these conservatives did come out to vote on ED. Well maybe they thought it would be good to let the Republican Party in on how it feels. America is dead no matter if it was Romney or Obama

  • Gravelyvoice Jim

    Sorry Jim, but this happened WELL before then and went virtually UNREPORTED on this site:

    http://www.24thstate.com/2012/07/the-day-the-republic-died.html

    The iron was hot WHITE HOT right after the big 2010 victory for conservatism but instead of pressuring the newly empowered Republican congress to tow the line, many “alternative/new media” site owners, grass-roots activists, as well as local talk show hosts went mainstream and lined up to curry favor and have their pictures taken and plastered all over the internet with local establishment Republican politicians. The movement lost its focus and diffused into the history books. Local establishment Republicans were allowed to gerrymander great up-and-coming conservative leaders like Jane Cunningham here in MO and Allen West in FL out of congressional seats as “leaders” of the new conservative media whistled past the graveyard. The white-hot iron cooled into a cold chunk of worthless metal as the newly elected Republican led U.S. House passed multiple CRs throughout 2011 that ran up our debt and funded and entrenched Obama Care as the law of the land while supposedly “conservative” Republican Representatives were being held to a different standard on their funding votes than Democrats through the cover of the local “right-wing” media (sound familiar visa-via the libs and the national media?).

    Not blaming any one individual here because it happened everywhere. Some were better at it others. In the end the cult-of-personality became more important than standing on conservative principles, and in some cases the pursuit of careers and the almighty dollar trumped principled political activism for our leaders. The frenzied conservative energy that was so prevalent in 2010 was reduced to a whimper.

    Leaders of the energetic 2010 conservative movement went mainstream or establishment, as the case may be, and attempted to play politics for profit with those much more seasoned and experienced than they were. The movement died as the establishment Republicans knew it was only a matter of time before those pesky “tea party” leaders would hang themselves with their own ropes. They did and we have now allowed our free republic to be transformed into a western European state and eventually worse. The course is now irreversible and the transformation will be complete within two years – as John Boehner attempts to cut a deal.

    I was a poll worker on Tuesday, and let me add that with my Republican co-worker, we helped three elderly mark their ballots. I voted for Obama, proudly, but helped these frail folks vote for Mitt Romney, and took joy in helping them to do so because they were so blind they couldn’t see the ballots even with the magnifying glass. Every person gets the right to vote, even if I don’t agree with them.

    Just to let you know, for over eighteen years I worked two jobs, an average of 50-60 hours a week to keep a roof over my two children’s heads because the man I was separated from told me he would kill me if I served him with papers. I decided it was better to be alive and poor. In the mean time he drove new cars and bought a house and travelled. I worked very, very hard, and have nothing to show for it. Nothing. Now I am on food stamps, and it keeps me alive. It is the first time I have ever accepted anything from my government and I am grateful for it, not ashamed. In three years I will be eligible for Medicare and I will accept that, too. I am eligible for Medicaid now, but choose not to take it.

    There are millions of people who are working poor. I myself am one. While the balance of money has shifted into increasingly fewer hands, those of us who are supposed to benefit from their largesse and investments in our society are growing ever weaker and poorer. There is a middle path here, folks, and we need to take it, because if the current trend destroys the middle class, there will be nothing to sustain the very wealthy. Henry Ford had it right, pay your hard working employees enough so that they can be comfortable, and buy your products, made proudly in the US, and not cheaply in China because you don’t have enough money to buy the ones made here.

    My question is, if Mr Romney wanted to de-fund Fema, do we abandon those tempest-tossed people on the New Jersey shore and not help them, even if they make ten times what I did in a good year? That would still be under the proposed tax increase for those making over $250,000 a year.

    Sometimes folks need help from their government. It is not a sign of weakness to do so. We need decent roads and safe trains and a river that does not run toxic with poison. That American Bald Eagle would still be endangered if someone wasn’t able to see the correlation between DDT and the broken eggs in their nests. Now there are almost ten thousand breeding pairs in the lower 48 when there were less than 500 and that insecticide was banned and the Federal Act protecting them was enforced. My heart soars every time I see one. There is a breeding pair not far from my house. I saw a mother and her young born this year in a tree last week.

    I am an American, too.

    No such correlation has ever existed… outside of propaganda…

    ” There is a middle path here, folks, and we need to take it, ”

    A middle path? You mean fascism? I think most people will pass on the 3rd way. The 3rd way has always been fun until it runs out of money like other socialists programs. Take what you can now because don’t expect those food stamps and medicare to be around for long. Those of us that a young are tired of being exploited by the older generation. Not that it matters since regardless things like social security will end… its just a matter of years maybe a few decades tops at this rate.

    Its the attitude behind your misguided words that pushed away the voters. We are all americans and each problem facing this country should be analyzed accurately so that the best decisions can be made. Quickly dismissing another point of view with offensive labels is no way to have a discussion. Birth control coverage IS health care to young women. They are otherwise healthy. Smart, educated foreigners should be encouraged to apply for citizenship. Deporting a human being that has lived here all their lives simply because their parents brought them here as children is cruel and wrong. Bring down the tone a little and start having conversations with people of apposing points of view. You may actually change their minds.

    The end is not near. We will move forward. Bush reduced the deficit? Really?

    I am not a liberal but a well educated american that has voted for presidents of both parties. Lets have debates and stop the crazy name calling and bizarre abstractions.

    Wow you mean just like you do?

    The rest of your post isn’t even worth commenting on since you simply don’t care about anyone’s views expect or for that matter any argument based in facts, logic or reasoning.

    You people are ALL I-N-S-A-N-E!!!! Wake up! The world is changing and you need to adapt if you want conservatism to survive. Constant talk of conspiracy theories and only “takers” and “moochers” voting for Obama makes you lose all credibility.

    Posting to a site attributed to the Stupidest Man on the Internet is, of course, like shooting fish in a barrel. But I just can’t stand it. With so much raw intelligence assembled here for a discussion, how could you possibly be wrong?
    Of course, Obama is a Socialist! Of course, the election was rigged! The New Black Panther party was at every polling place, not only bullying little old white ladies but actually ALTERING THEIR VOTES! Freedom is dead! God has abandoned America to abortion-loving whores and their queer allies! Negroes seeking handouts now outnumber real Americans!
    What you folks need to do–and I can see that at least one or two of you actually know how to read–is to cut the Fox News umbilical cord and start looking at alternate sources for your information. You’re all just talking to each other, an incestuous and, I’m sorry, ignorant little group. You don’t have to read the New York Times (heaven forfend!) etc. But mix it up a little. The Republicans got their clocks cleaned this time. If their issues mean anything to you, get informed about how you can help promote them. But, newsflash: yammering on the site of that famous asshat Jim Hoft isn’t going to help one bit.
