I missed an opportunity with respect to the Mourdock Senate race to remind listeners that the RINO Lugar machine — angry, bitter and entitled after being defeated by Mourdock in the primary — also sabotaged his chances of winning in the general election. Other than that, Steve and I pretty much covered the full range of underlying causes, assisted by two great callers who offered their well-informed opinions.
Keep fighting, keep the faith and keep strengthening your local communities. And keep praying.
For a variety of reasons including but not limited to now-resolved computer issues, it has taken me two days to publish my post-Election Day thoughts, although I let loose in a series of Facebook status updates in real-time the other night:
Our once great Republic has crumbled. I am especially ashamed of my gender and its obsession with abortion. God help us all, this country cannot survive its fools.
Thanks to the uninformed and others obsessed with Roe v Wade, we will all find out what Comrade Obama meant when he told the Russian President he will have more “flexibility” after the election.
Connecticut has forfeited the right to call itself the Constitution State since it has fallen so far from Constitutional principles. 92% for Obama??
Add Pennsylvania to the list of states that has completed abandoned its proud history in the fight for independence
If you voted for Obama, shame on you! You have aided and abetted the destruction if our once great Republic. Just wait til you find out how expensive “free” healthcare is, and how bad the forthcoming sequestration will be for our economy. Thanks for nothing freeloaders.
Although I’ve had 48 hours to allow the horror to sink in, it has only increased with hindsight, exacerbated by the exit polls, demographic breakdown and news like this from Michelle Malkin, which was entirely expected:
Two-thirds of single women voted for President Barack Obama on Tuesday – showing that unattached women are a powerful Democratic voting bloc.
These women were galvanized not only by traditional “women’s” issues such as birth control and abortion rights, but also by Obama’s jobs message and health reform, analysts say.
NBC News national exit polling shows that 67 percent of unmarried women said they voted for Obama. That’s in line with the 2008 election, when 70 percent of single women helped usher the president into office. This proves it wasn’t a single-election phenomenon: unmarried women have solidified into a powerful voting force, experts say.
Seriously ladies (and I use the term loosely), “liberation” now means total dependency on Daddy Government? And are you really that gullible to believe the propaganda that Mitt Romney was going to take away your birth control and reverse Roe v. Wade (even though no President has the power to overturn a Supreme Court decision)?
These are of course, rhetorical questions. Because the cold, hard data proves these ill-informed and easily led Julia’s know nothing about the Obamacare bill and its deleterious effects on our economy (already happening as small biz owners being laying off employees to stay under the 50 employee threshold) and our healthcare (IPAB, excess taxes on medical device manufacturers, etc). But hey, reading is hard. Informing yourself is square. Voting on facts is passe. Just ingest the propaganda the left spews out and live the life of government-dependent Julia, whose cradle-to-grave existence is funded by people who do get off their butts and work for a living.
To say I am ashamed of my gender would be a HUGE understatement. You haven’t come a long way, baby. In fact, you’ve regressed pathetically far from the era of the American pioneer women and the European immigrants of yesteryear who came to this country in search of OPPORTUNITY, not government largesse. Once upon a time, it was considered shameful, or at the very least, a temporary if necessary evil to accept food stamps, welfare and other government goodies. Back in the day, private citizens, private charities and religious institutions bore the responsibility of helping others back onto their feet after a major setback or unforeseen circumstance.
But now, instead of “I am woman, hear me roar”, apparently the motto is “I am woman, hear me whine” — oh and, give me lots of free birth control and abortion on demand, even if it violates the religious liberties of my employer (should I actually work for a paycheck).
For shame. And just one stark example of the inherent connection between morality and economic prosperity. In a society that deems generational welfare an acceptable career choice while simultaneously demonizing those who do produce, i.e. business owners (as evidenced in movies, TV, music, etc), it’s no wonder half of the electorate — including single women — voted for more dependency at the expense of national security and prosperity.
Our once proud Republic, founded by courageous patriots like Patrick Henry, whose motto was “Give me liberty or give me death” has been destroyed by fools whose motto has transformed into “Give me free stuff”. Sad, pathetic, depressing.
I weep for my country as I realize we have selfishly squandered the beacon of liberty our Founders risked their very lives to secure. Yes, I will keep fighting but I fear that the battle may not be won when only half of us actually understand that the United States of America and its watershed document, the US Constitution, cannot be upheld and preserved by a nation of freeloaders but only by a moral and religious people as noted by Founding Father John Adams.
If I didn’t believe their souls were enjoying the blessings of the afterlife in the presence of God, I’d be inclined to think our Founders were turning over in their graves. Shame on my fellow countrymen — and fellow members of my sex — for destroying everything they worked so hard to secure, the greatest nation the world has ever known.
Worth reading today: From Us, the Bitterati by Jay Nordlinger. It’s a little long but Nordlinger eloquently speaks for all of us who love our freedom and anxiously await the forthcoming pain of a second Obama term.
And ladies, believe me, there will be pain — lots of it. I hope the “free” birth control was worth it. Thanks for nothing.
After voting, sign waving and hanging out for a bit at a friend’s house, I decided to set up at a local Dunkin Donuts in Boca Raton to do some blogging and catch up on social media. Proudly wearing my Romney-Ryan button, I didn’t care who might turn up their nose (or worse) upon noticing, but I never expected what just happened a few minutes ago.
As I sat reading and typing, a lovely young woman approached me and in an excited voice asked if I had another Romney button. Although I didn’t have another to give her, I offered to go out to my car to retrieve a bunch of Romney-Ryan signs, a gesture she gratefully accepted, thrilled to bring them back to her office, boss and co-workers. People around us definitely noticed, though no one else — save for two of her co-workers (one of whom took the photos) seemed to pay us any mind.
No matter. It might be anecdotal, like the reports of extremely high voter turnout all around suburban Philadelphia but when you add everything up, you can’t help but feel the groundswell for freedom. God willing, we’ll all be celebrating an early victory tonight.
