If Obama is reelected, this country will fall.
I'm 27 years old and have nothing going for me. More companies will go out of business, and more jobs will be lost and shipped overseas. I'm going to be fined because I won't be able to find a job to buy worthless government healthcare.
I came home from voting upbeat and confident. Now I feel useless and I'm at a crossroads in my life that I fear and don't want to face.
I'm almost 30, and I have nothing. What the hell am I going to do?
“Youre thinking like a liberal, guy. Your success depends solely on you. You make your own opportunities.”
Many years ago, when I was 19, I felt lost, not knowing which way was up. I joined the Navy. They fixed my head in three months of boot camp. That was the best decision I made in my life. It changed everything for me, for the better. I recommend the military to anyone who is lost.
> but you have obviously not experienced Divorce/”Family”
> Court as a white, Western male.
LOL! Oh, but I have!
Been there, done that.
Got the shirt, got the hat.
Yeah, it was a long time ago, but I lost everything: wife, house, kids. I was lucky to keep my old beater VW.
Been re-married to my current wife now for over 30 years. Got 11 kids, got a nice hobby farm, got a nice job, got cars, trucks, and a big van.
No matter what you go through, you’ll come out of it.
Don’t let an election throw you.
America and the American Dream are bigger than 0bama.
And God is bigger than all of it.
This country is in the process of being greatly humbled by God for its wickedness. Our prosperity will be taken away because we made an idol out of wealth, our freedom will be taken away because we preferred licentiousness to the real liberty of obedience to God, we will suffer defeat, even our unity as a nation may come to an end. God's chastisement always consists of giving the sinner what he prefers to God, until it either destroys him or he sickens of it and repents. Obama is God's instrument of punishment precisely because so many Americans prefer his snake oil to honest work and moral living.
Through everything that must come to pass, keep your faith in God, not in America or any other nation. There will come a time to pick up the pieces, and there will be pieces left to pick up. And maybe then we can rebuild that shining city on a hill of which President Reagan once spoke so eloquently.
Cool, it sounds intense, I bet you never forget that dream, I don’t know what dreams like that (more accurately, of that level of detail and intensity) mean, but they stay on our minds for years.
I’m still trying to figure out how dreams of decades ago, could raise such lingering thoughts and feelings and such a strong desire to know where it came from, what caused it, it’s purpose or meaning, the why of it.
The first blow to medical care will come shortly. ObamaCare stipulates that for anyone who is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days for any reason, whether it's related to their first visit's problems or not, Medicare will not reimburse the hospital for the costs of the second admission.
This isn't piecemeal socialized medicine, i.e., convert all healthcare workers to government pay, but an actual loss of healthcare resources once whole hospitals start going out of business.
They will be responsible for the fall of this country.
I got shafted pretty bad by the NYC public education system they so vehemently support. Even had one teacher that probably gave me most of the social problems I have today.
For the a-holes at DU reading this, you can all go screw yourselves. What will you all do when Daddy Barack runs out of money and can’t support you anymore?
A friend of mine taught me a valuable lesson years ago. He was maybe the poorest person I knew but he was also the happiest. No matter what his situation he always looked at the bright side of life. He always made me feel good when i seen him and that is so important.
Tell us which threads that you approve of based on DU and post the links, then we can join you on those and abandon this one.
That’s pretty disgusting. They claim to be liberal and tolerant, but they get pleasure from the suffering of a fellow human person. It wasn’t so long ago that many of them were despondent when a President they didn’t like was relected. They should remember that, and realize that one day it will probably happen again for them.
I’m very sorry wastedyears. I’m sorry you feel so depressed. I do, too. I’d like to be able to give you a pep talk, but it’s hard. I was so hopeful today, too. Before Obama even got it, my 10 year old told me tonight he wished he could go back in time and stop his parents from ever meeting. He said he wished he hadn’t been born in this time. I’m going to definitely need to give him a pep talk. Now my seven year old is crying...she just heard Obama was re-elected. I told her we will be okay—we will survive. She said she’s going to put up a lemonade stand every day:) Then she realized it was winter and she said “warm lemonade”, then she changed it to hot cocoa. Steely Tom has some positive words on this thread. I like that. We need to support each other. You are lucky to have your parents and they are lucky to have you. If you need moral support or commiseration, don’t be afraid to ask for it here and in your personal life. You can gain strength from people like Steely Tom and others who have been there and done that. Be well FRiend. I wish that for you and me and all good FReepers. I’m so thankful for this forum.
I feel your pain...I feel like the humility my ancestry felt enduring Reconstruction
but just the title of your thread made me chuckle
trust me..there is somewhere off the grid on this big old planet without all this crap..i was happy as an expat once...now i will likely do like most like us...self segregate to our places...rural mostly
but our country is lost to the weak and bitter for now and it hurts
thanks though ...I laughed out loud...but i know you weren’t trying to be funny
I’m 55 with 5 children and struggling business etc...and I’m scared too...but not at risk about what to do with my life
but i will never give up and you can’t either
we are outnumbered by demographics...we are going to have to find some way to turn either some Mexicans or White Northern liberals
those are the only two options
I will be curious to see how the white vote compares to 2008 and 2010
I had figured if we replicated 2010 we’d win...62%
you’re too young but we used to win nationals with 52-54% white vote totals
this ain’t 1980 anymore
we opened the door and let them in
the GOP committed suicide and we warned em...big fights over it here...and nobody listened...called us bigots...banned us even
but the primary culprit here is the latino vote and that implication in Florida, California, New Mexico and Colorado and Nevada
and guess what....Texas will be at risk soon enough...imagine that?
now we are stuck with them..if most Mexican women were prettier we could just marry em up...for the cause..but whew
Your post 47 is why I’m afraid to date. For something so much as someone not liking me anymore, my life can be ruined. It’s also why I’m so conflicted with remaining single for that very reason, and wanting to tell a special someone in my life how I feel about them.
I don’t personally know how bad it is, but the prospect of my life being ruined because someone doesn’t care about me anymore scares the life out of me.
Excellent post Westbrook. Brought tears to my eyes!
But have you SEEN today’s matriarchy, errrr, I mean “child” support obligations? I had my children back in the eighties and never receive a dime of child support. My husband pays his ex-shrew $1,000 a month making only 36K a year; she makes much more than he does and has remarried a just shy of six figure dude. I had hoped that CS reform would be on the agenda but now, not bloody likely. Here it goes till 21 and beyond. So we have “children” voting in NYS ages 18-21.
Another good post. I wish we could all do a big FReeper group hug right now. :)
Hey, I’m depressed too, but hang in there-Things will get better despite the morons in this country. God Bless!
I could say so much, I could relate so much. I wrote a song called Greek Columns In Ruins that I would like to see performed by an act able to spread it to a wider audience. I don’t see strangling people with bigger bureaucracies as a solution to our problems, nor can I say that my situation in life has improved over the past four years.
I work at Best Buy, been doing that for four years. I’ve watched the cutting of hours and removal of fulltime positions, and I think that it has something to do with Obama. I see many of my co-workers bragging about voting for Obama on their Facebook pages without any discussion about Libya. I think that anybody who gets laid off because of Obamacare coming in, should tell their co-workers(before they leave) about what they’ve done. I may not, but I feel an urge that if the effects continue I will speak up to the Obamaphiles at work.
I’ve been trying to go to school to become a Radio DJ. I get indoctrinated by a professor who repeats every Left-Wing talking point and shows us Left-Wing videos. I’ve been trying to get my songs published in a world where what I write is too dated, too “old” for the people that I submit the songs to and I just don’t give up. Even my newest one may sound too dated. Don’t give up.
In the end, even if Obama wins it is not like the Obamaphiles won’t feel the effects of what voting for their idol did for them. He may even get impeached because of Benghazi. I haven’t talked a lot, here, as I don’t feel like I can always say something effectively enough or good enough to sound like I am contributing something useful. Whether I wanted to or not, I had to do this.
