This has been brewing a while. It's probably not a fully formed thought, so I'll just throw that out there first and foremost and apologize.
The situation, as we all know now, is grim.
We have an ineffective, disliked and extremely polarizing incumbent.
We have an allegedly moderate Republican from a very blue state.
We have the GOP wunderkind in Ryan who is supposedly going to help flip another very blue state in Wisconsin.
Yet what do we have? 4 more years of Obama.
This is the end of the GOP and of national conservatism. It's time to face it, the country just isn't buying what we, as conservatives, are selling at this point.
Where do we go from here? I do not know.
The end of a once great nation!
Biden is proof that VP matters nothing to people.
Galt, Costa Rica, The Philippines, Canada, Norway.
I agree. The titanic demographic change has changed America and it is not going away. Each cycle it will become more and more pronounced. I’m wit you, I don’t know where we go, but traditional Conservatism in America is dead. It doesn’t mean we can’t “do something” but be assured, this is a very different America.
I was thinking Canada. They’re more conservative than the US now, and their currency is stronger!
It’s not done yet - wait a few hours
Australia is already overrun with muzzies and Global Warmistas.
The 47% voted as expected, in their own self interest. The die is cast, trillion $$ deficits and 50M+ people on food stamps for at least another 4 years.
I am not sure the country will survive in its present form.
Even if Romney wins it's WAY too close.
The same place we always have to go; get conservatives elected to local offices, push the liberals back, and when liberals flying the Republican flag fail at the polls, call them on their ineffective surrender of conservative values.
We win nothing by trying to not quite out liberal a liberal. We simply lose if we lose, and lose if we win.
I half kiddingly told my wife we will be moving in with her parents. I’m serious this Country is completely toast. We are being judged by God.
I’m feeling your pain.
In spite of the damage done by this evil socialist, so many Americans still voted for him. I am losing my faith in the American people. My husband (and a few others) have said that the American people have become too stupid, too lazy and too greedy to want a president that would expect them to ACT like Americans. I can see that I must- finally- agree with him. Bill OReilly said that “the folks” want “stuff”. I have always felt that most Americans KNEW that gub’mint “stuff” came with a hefty price. I can no longer believe that they know this, at all.
The last 4 years are NOTHING compared to the damage he will do in the next 4. We will never come back.
We’re winning Wisconsin. Calm down.
I think we are going to have to move away for awhile from the social issues of abortion and gay marriage. The young generation wants gay marriage and they want birth control and abortion on demand. The fact Akin and Mourdock got wiped out in Red States is telling,
However, with the debt crisis coming, I think we’ve got to focus on that issue. As the debt crisis takes over, young people might be persuaded that a free market and austerity is better than the full bore socialism that Obama will try to take us down.
Frankly, I can’t worry about the unborn and gays marrying if the economy here has collapsed. Because if he economic system collapses we have no freedom at all.
I think it’s obvious the GOP will go hard after the Mexican vote. The only way they can do that is back the DREAM act, if not something even worse, and they’ll be in favor of more handouts.
Capital C Conservatives will leave the GOP in droves.
One thing I’m sure of....we have the govt we deserve.
I believe it is the mooch factor. It is no longer an embarrassment to be dependent on others paying your way...it is a way of life for too many.
That and the blatant corruption within the entire Democrat organization where the end always justifies the means.
Thanks for bringing some rationality to this discussion. Like him or not, Karl Rove is a very good numbers cruncher and just a few minutes ago on Fox, he outlined a very doable path for an Obama defeat.
If anyone watched the TCU-WVU football game from last Saturday, it looked like a certain loss for the Horn Frogs but they triumphed in double overtime. Expect the same tonight as the Obama regime falls.
By the way, I flipped over to MSNBC for a few minutes during a commercial break on Fox. Suffice it to say that mood of the leftists was, to say the least, subdued. They are very pensive and not at all confident of a victory for Marxism.
