Well, you didn't vote for Romney and we have 4 more years of Obama. Feel good?
I feel that I've wasted too many years among a bunch of spoilers.
This should be an epic thread...especially coming from a Class of 99’er.
“a bunch of spoilers. . .”
I don’t think that’s fair. I think the vast majority here voted for Romney.
We’d better all hang together or we’ll all hang separately. Or be beaten into a coma by an 8:1 random attack by unidentied “youths”.
You win! The worst opus ever!
Thank you fellow citizens for reelecting the Freddy Krueger of economics.
How many times did you vote? Only once? Then it was you who elected Obama!
Don’t do it man! Turn back!
I have to say, it’s hard to disagree with your disappointment in the ones who sat home.
They are partly the reason we are where we are. No denying it.
I hope they don’t plan on complaining when the Supreme Court is packed with America-hating leftists, who will destroy America forever.
To add insult to injury, many of them did it with an air of superiority, boasting of how much more conservative and principled they were than the rest of us.
It’s a dark day in America.
Contact Jim - he will stop it for you. I imagine he will also close your account if that’s what you want.
I voted for Romney. Only a fool would allow Obama four more years.
Not sure who sat it out. Most likely the billion in negative ads which weren’t countered early did the trick.
Most people here voted for Romney.
Lashing out like this is pointless. We active conservatives need to come together now and discuss how we go forward. There will be disagreement and we may not agree on one path, but things in this world are likely to go pear shaped and we are going to need each other. Let’s stand together. There are a lot of really good people here to work with going forward.
>>those who voted for obama will be the ones that suffer the most under his rule<<
And the rest of us will have it better than them? Your logic fails.
You know it ain’t the same here rockrr. I feel the guys pain too! Sometimes I feel like this place should be called FreePerot or PerotCountry. It is crazy when we cut our throats like many have done here.
I don’t know who u are talking to. I voted early for Romney here in Tn
I can’t speak to why others did not vote. My motivation to vote was more
A vote against Obama, than a vote for Romney.
Romney trashed other candidates during the primary but treated Obama
with kid gloves. It was clear that Romney’s team went all in for the moderates and
Independents in both parties and ignored conservatives.
The moderates and independents, who he counted on, did not vote in
Large enough numbers. And in some key counties, the Liberterin candidate
Drew votes away.
As to how to cancel your monthly donation, I am unsure, as I am an annual
I’m a spoiler because I refuse to sell my soul so the GOP could win?
What good is winning if in the quest I must compromise every worthwhile virtue I possess?
Forget it. I’m not risking my salvation for anyone or anything.
Too many purists who would reject a half-full glass of conservatism lite even if it means getting an overflowing glass of marxist tyranny.
They couldn’t vote for Romney because he was a MORMON. I have never met a Mormon who wasn’t a patriotic American (except hairy reid of course). Yes they have some strange religious ideas but objectively, what religion doesn’t?
I voted Romney/Ryan. I think most did. I know some said they voted for Johnson. I was furious, but to each their own. however, at the beginning of the primaries, it was obvious Johnson was NO conservative, and his views on many things could be matched with socialist party stuff. There was NO WAY I could pull the lever for Johnson. And, of all the elections to throw away a vote? No, not many of us did, that I can tell.
Leavin’ ? Bye.
So congratulations on that Christian communist that got elected.
Your only principle is STUPIDITY if you did not vote for the Republican in all of those elections.
Mitt Romney is not my kind of conservative, but he is a good man with a good heart who was willing to sacrifice a lot to work hard at bettering our country and giving us all a chance to achieve the best we can. You can't say that for the other guy.
Let’s see. The left needs the parasitic class now in order to enlarge the state, but at the point the state starts to fail the political class will begin to look for scapegoats. The parasitic class will need to be culled, so that the nation state can remain viable. In short, when big government begins to fail certain segments of the parasitic class will be the first to be thrown under the bus. Stalin and the intelligentsia despised poor people. They were only a political tool used by Stalin to gain power.
But, I ain't gonna quit. These next four years are gonna suck, and maybe in two years we have another 2010 and we make big headway in congress. Maybe the 2016 will bring another Gipper, who that is we don't know, but we ain't dead yet, Cheer up! I know finestien wants to confiscate our guns that look like military assault weapons but are not for no other reason that to make it easier to take the rest of our guns later. And Bohner, our bulldog head of the house is already kissing Rieds and Otramas collective asses for no apparent reason other than total surrender. Have a nice day!
Bitter internal fighting within conservative & GOP alliance cost the election.
Damn you Sir! Your conscience and principals have cost me and my progeny a life of servitude.
God’s in control. He’ll take care of Obama.
How about next time, instead of having podunk states like Iowa and New Hampshire determine our candidates, we actually have the one single large population state that’s reliably GOP, Texas, have a say in who the nominee is?
You are correct, these are people who can’t spell either “conscience” or “principle”! And they VOTE!
I do understand. One of the first things I did on Wednesday was to unsubscribe to dick morris, Glenn Beck, and a bunch of the pundits who were so completely wrong in their prognostications.
I’m a patient guy and know that the truth will out about the numbers of “stay at homes” including the anti-mormons and the absolutists and purists.
I hope that hocndoc logs out and listens to some music or does some work in the shop or finds something to take the edge off this pile of crap called election 2012.
There will be no Gipper. Demographics and the free flow of immigration means this country is doomed to trod inexorably down the path that all European socialist countries have taken. High taxes, high unemployment, no social mobility and a diminished sense of nation and mission. Buy another 9mm. Teach your children Mandarin. I am.
I voted Romney / Ryan.
When we lost a few dem friends immediately started calling (I suspect to gloat). I didn’t answer the phone.
They’re still calling. I’m not answering the phone. This election was the most important election for my family, our lives, going forward.
I treasure those who stood by and mourned with me.
“Obama the capitalism-hating, liberty-hating, America-hating Marxist must be destroyed!!
Aug 20, 2012 | Jim Robinson”
Maybe you missed this..
You’re still operating under the assumption that the Washingtonians from either faction (communist/marxist or blue blood country club bankers) give a rats ass about what happened on Tuesday , or about us suckers that they extort money from under penalty of imprisonment.
They are all still living in fat city.
There will be nothing coming out of DC other than higher taxes and less freedom, no matter which faction is in power.
The sooner the geniuses that post to this website realize that the greatest threat to American freedom and prosperity is the political class in DC and Arlington, that there is no difference between the the political parties, and that they perpetrate a scam every 4 years over who gets to redistribute the working mans cash to their friends, the better.
Romney lost because he is a degenerate scumbag coward who is probably insane to boot.
DC is the problem.
Time for a Constitutional Convention and time to rotate the capitol amongst the States.
“Well, you didn’t vote for Romney and we have 4 more years of Obama. Feel good? I feel that I’ve wasted too many years among a bunch of spoilers. No more. How do I cancel the monthly donation?”
I don’t vote for liberals.
Most people on the forum voted for Romney so you should feel right at home. Even Jim Robinson voted for Romney, so it wasn’t his fault you’re not happy, in fact, you should love this place as it’s been a Romney support place for a long time now.
Romney voters have been posting constantly since he lost. These are your people - why leave?
Enoch Powell was Right.

Ah yes, a bunch of Libertarians decided to not vote or to vote for a different party. Sure hate those folks right?
You might as well give up the grievance according to party, to religion, to expectations, etc.
The world is made up of individuals - many that have not idea or understanding of your preferences and that includes voting.
You can complain all you want but until most of the folks agree with you, you are wondering in the wilderness. That means over 50% of the folks and also means that those that do agree with you are also going to vote YOUR way!
So, get over yourself! Everybody is different and most have different opinions than you do. Except it and either try to change their minds or go away... You are either in a minority or you are not.
Nope, just more .357 and 5.56mm.
Coonan Arms got this piece I's like to match up with my S & W 686.
As horrid as it is to have Obama remain another four years, the actual aspect of Romney not winning hasn’t particularly bothered me all that much. Which is unique, because previous GOP defeats usually felt like being knifed in the gut.
When Romney reacted to the Chick-Fil-A hubbub with an embarrassingly noncommital “that’s not a part of my campaign,” and then the way the GOP convention refused to allow the very words “tea party” be uttered... things like that alienated me from Romney entirely. And this was after years of his political minions trashing Palin to their elite liberal buddies in the media. Pretty much through with the GOP entirely, at this point.
I know I did. Sheila too. We had no other choice.
Why is it you are blaming us?
“I didnt vote for romny, didnt vote for mccane, didnt vote for dole.......so, I sleep very well at night knowing that those who voted for obama will be the ones that suffer the most under his rule.....and the fact that I never violated my concious.”
But you will pay for Sandra Fluke’s abortions.
Don’t you just love these vanity posters, who give their opinion, then
Run away from the discussion. There is a word for that. Coward!
I will not be speaking to my democrat family any more. I didn’t talk to them much before.
So far, the worst effects of the election have been the countless two sentence, passing thoughts, idiotic vanities on Free Republic.
