RIP American Republic

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:

This is just the beginning.

In case you missed it, Boeing announced massive layoffs and facilities closures yesterday. More: Small business owners are dropping the axe as they brace for the costs and burdens of Obamacare.

In case you missed it, I reported on Obama’s layoff bomb last week.

Read the entire, depressing account at Michelle’s site.

Speaking of depressing, 67% of single women voted with their Lady Parts this time around:

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.

Happy Restoration of the Republic Day!

Grace Community Church in Boca Raton, site of my vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

Picked up a patriot friend who votes at the same precinct in East Boca Raton around 9 a.m. this morning. Very pleased to report a strong presence of Romney-Ryan supporters (along with other GOP candidates on the ticket) in a line that moved fairly quickly. Yes, I did notice a few Obama voters (as evidenced by their facial expressions and/or Obama swag) but by and large, the energy was definitely on the RR side. On a positive note, no one had an issue with producing valid photo ID and the election workers were courteous and organized.

After we voted, Carole and I hung out for a while on the corner, waving our Romney-Ryan signs at passing cars — most of which honked their approval, along with the occasional finger from the hopelessly devoted to Barack crowd.

Also heard from three family members in suburban Philadelphia who all reported long lines and lots of enthusiasm for our side. To use my mother’s term, the atmosphere in West Chester, PA was “electric” for Romney, with 25 people phone banking to remind people to get out the vote. She noted that in 2008, there were only four people doing that on behalf of John McCain. In Radnor Township, my brother Mark was patiently waiting in a long line, where he happily remarked that in a dramatic turn of events from just four years ago, most voters were there to support Romney. And in Springfield, my sister Carolyn reported that the extremely long lines were setting a record for turnout, according to a good friend of hers who is a committeeman with the local GOP. She also sadly expressed her disappointment that members of her law firm, which exists to defend doctors against malpractice suits, were mostly voting for Obama.

After the vote, sign waving.

“Don’t they understand that if we don’t repeal Obamacare, most doctors are going to retire and we’re going to be out of work?” she asked rhetorically. It’s a sad state of affairs when ostensibly smart, accomplished people can be so woefully uninformed when it comes to making a decision as important as choosing the next President of the United States. I am just praying that all of these anecdotes amount to a huge victory for freedom not only in Pennsylvania but in enough states to elect Mitt Romney in a landslide.

Let’s take the first step to restoring our Republic, patriots — vote Romney/Ryan 2012!

Two Days Away from Fundamental Restoration of the USA

“Lady Smarts” on display in Boca Raton.

I spent the past two days sign waving for Romney Ryan at early voting locations, and at the busy Glades Rd. and St. Andrews Blvd. intersection in Boca Raton on Friday night, with other like-minded patriots. Largely due to the efforts of good friend Starla Munn Brown, who organized Women for Mitt in Palm Beach County, turnout at all three Palm Beach County rallies on Friday night numbered 75+ people.

And in spite of the up-and-down polls (which seem to change every day), judging from the overwhelmingly positive reaction of passing motorists to our presence on all four street corners, the energy and enthusiasm is most definitely on our side. Most laid on their horns, waved, and cheered their solidarity with us as they sped down Glades Rd., clearly excited by our presence and motivated to restore a republic that has been brutally battered by “hope and change”. If these folks have not already taken advantage of early or absentee voting, it’s a sure bet they’ll be casting their vote for Romney-Ryan on Election Day.

With young activist Connor Lanser.

My favorite chant of the night? “Four More Days”! which we broke out into frequently during the 2 1/2 hour rally, prompted by the few Obama supporters who drove by calling out “Four More Years!”

Unlike 2008, when it was obvious we were fighting a losing battle and propping up a weak candidate (although my vote was purely for Sarah Palin), this time around it feels as if we can not only win this thing, but win it BIG. I’m not a professional pollster and I lack the analytical skills of a Michael Barone (who, by the way, predicts a Romney landslide), but I can honestly report from being on the ground that Romney has a tremendous amount of support even in liberal South Florida.

At the early voting site in East Boca Raton on Saturday, many who stood in the 3-4 hour line quietly gave us the thumbs-up as if to say, “Yes, I am on your side. I just have to keep quiet about it.” A Romney volunteer I spoke with noted that her experience in phone banking was marked by many self-described Democrats admitting they were voting Republican but out of fear of incurring the wrath of family and friends, were keeping their decision to themselves. She relayed how these folks would say something to the effect of “Whew! I am so glad you called while I am alone because I don’t want my husband/wife to know I am voting for Romney”.

Hey, whatever it takes.

Romney may not win any of the South Florida counties but if he can make a big enough dent in Obama’s support here, it will be enough, given how the rest of the state is trending.

But until we win, we must keep fighting. Heck, even after we win, we have a TREMENDOUS amount of work cut out for us, and a very scary Lame Duck session ahead.

Last night on #CRFRadio, Steve and I discussed all of these things with guests Stephen K. Bannon and Mike Cutler. Click below to listen.

Seize The Moment America

Here we are in the final stretch in what has felt at times like an endless campaign. Right now, I am experiencing mixed emotions — on the one hand, I am cautiously optimistic and ready for November 6 and yet on the other, persistently apprehensive knowing that we’re days away from finding out if the American people are ready to choose freedom, opportunity and liberty over ever-expanding government and ultimately, socialism. We’ll either choose to restore our nation to greatness or consign it to the annals of history as a former Super Power that squandered its status as the “last, best hope on earth” because its citizens fell away from God and valued “free stuff” and government dependency over self-reliance, private charity, character, integrity, faith and hard work.

This NRCC video is an excellent reminder of what’s at stake on Tuesday — choose wisely America.

Heading to a Women For Mitt sign waving rally in Boca Raton at the corner of Glades and St. Andrews from 4 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. If you’re in the area, join us as we stand in solidarity for Romney-Ryan and all of the pro-freedom candidates on the ticket.

May God bless America with a new president who actually loves his country and will do right by its citizens.
