OK. So, Let's Say Our Worst Fears Have Come To Fruition. What Options Do We Have? I Am Frightened.

Posted on 11/06/2012 8:32:34 PM PST by lbryce

I'm watching the polls and it Seems a fait accompli that our worst fears, the nightmare scenario, the anathema our forefathers feared, come to fruition. Our governmental institutions seem powerless to stop this craven, megalomaniac sociopath, who after the election the power granted to him, is the power that corrupts absolutely in the manner in which he will ratchet up the process of dismantling, eviscerating this great beloved country of ours,with a brazen impunity left unchecked where there will be no turning back for anything to be salvaged.

What in God's Name do we have to stop this relentless monster in his tracks, legally,Constitutionally...

What options do we have?

Let's not kid ourselves. This election, the way it's going, will be the death knell of us all. I am frightened by what I imagine will unravel......

I just bought more ammo online. Will be purchasing my 5.56 AR within the month. Seriously considering an out-of-Country job offer I have. Looking at alternative career paths for when the defense/aerospace industry collapses. That’s my plan.

You cannot do ANYTHING for this country. What you can do is move to Texas or Alaska, and join the secessionist movement, which I may do.

I love the Philippines but I have two kids (alright, they’re 40-ish) and they’ll always be my kids. My Mother is 92. I need to be able to get back in one flight. I’m looking in Central America; it’s a shame that Mexico is such a mess.

C’mon now, let’s not be drama queens like the DUmmies.

They’re prolly lurking in here just to watch your heads implode.

Keep your cool.

You’re better than that. You’ll make do, and adversity only serves to bring out the best in those that really are the best.

Besides, it may be God’s way of protecting us from something much worse. Who knows what would have happened to our country if 0bama lost? I submit that his supporters are not as cool-headed as those of a more conservative persuasion.

Let the first communist “Black President” have his eight years. Then he will be gone. The pendulum will swing back. It always does.

Enjoy your life.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Move to Russia, at least there the guy in charge cares about the status of his country.

I am really angry at this point but will not do anything rash. I figure we are in for a rough ride. Being 67 has its benefits, I will not be here to see the final collapse. I have no off springs so nothing to worry about.

BTW, the POS will probably take florida too denying a solid south. I pray for a sessession movement, millions for defense but not one cent for moochers is a good motto.

Drive off the cliff. No more borrowing limit increases. Force President Valerie Jarrett and Traitor Reid explain to the public that they'll have to buy their own cell phones and condoms, get Planned Prenthood to pay for their abortions and extend unemployment benefits to five f*cking years.

Every time some libtard complains from now on I'm telling them to get their answers from the President they re-elected. An bitter, tiny, empty suit who couldn't run a lemonade stand, let alone a government.

It is not Obama so much that concerns me. It is the media that assists him and propagates his lies and deceptions. It is the teachers that fall into the same philosophical mindset that teach most all of our children and young adults. It is the people that are so brainwashed they have no idea that they have fallen for it all hook, line, and sinker. THAT is what bothers me. One man in America can do nothing really. It is clear now the agenda started by the socialists in the 1920's has come to fruition and completely overtaken our once great country.

We now live in a morally corrupt, socialist society folks with evil deception of race bating and class envy. We must do what we can to be great in spite of this very effective take over.

Time for our party to reevaluate.

Hillary will win in 2016, and secessionist movements will grow in both Alaska and Texas, who were already considering such a measure. I am predicting that those two will leave the union shortly after 2016.

I’m not trying to spin this positive, but I’ve talked with several people who think a lot differently than I do (they are in the financial industry) and they saw Romney as a long shot all along, although he would have been a good thing for the economy there would still have been gridlock in Congress. They saw Obama as more of the same as we’ve seen in the last 2 years since the Rs took the House in 2010, i.e. screwy foreign policy, a loss of status as a world power, but life goes on more-less as it is. Good chance of slipping back into recession (no GNP growth) but no chance of more stimulus fiascos.

So not great but not catastrophic. No one knows what the future holds and I see no value in despair and defeatism even though I, like Rush, live in Realville.

We didn’t get the House until 2010 and since 2010, the deficit has dropped 200 billion. As economy recovers, deficit will go down even more.

Well said, Jack. This sucks, but won't be nearly as bad as Obama's first two years when Dems had both the house and senate. Just pray for the health of all the supreme court justices.

If you can seriously believe this, then I feel sorry for you.

When has a Dictator, (which is what was just elected) EVER gone away legally? I’ve heard more than one person (color doesn’t matter for they’ve been both black and white) that ONLY four years won’t be enough to REALLY fix the Country...Obama needs 8, 12, 16! Years to fix things.

What’s going to stop him? The Constitution? HA! That will only be a “paper” that he will get rid of as soon as possible.

I’m a lifelong Texan and have supported secession as the only way to preserve liberty for some time now.
Most Texans I talk to agree with me in private but are afraid to voice it publicly.
I will keep trying and maybe one day people will have taken enough crap and be willing to not give a damn what they are called for taking a bold position.

My take aways from all this is that it is now nearly impossible for either side to unseat an incumbent president and that although it has been tried in the past to varying degrees Obama and his team perfected the “blame your predecessor for everyting wrong” meme. Simply put, it worked. All we have is Congress so we must all our energies into stiffening their backbone in thwarting Obama’s diabolical plot to systematically destroy America (we also retain the majority state houses/governorships).

I said this on another thread, but it bears repeating, and another Freeper first brought this up yesterday. This is biblical. Read Ephesians 6:12:
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

It’s time to pray, prepare and arm yourself while you still can. If we couldn’t win this election, what circumstances do you think we will have by 2016? It’s time to start considering some serious solutions here.

I find it strange this election is a duplicate of Obama’s first election. That smacks of cheating and fraud. Obama has never won anything. The same thing has happened. A house which will do nothing; lost the Senate again and have the same President again. I have never seen this. The only thing that could happen to cause this is cheating and fraud and that is not just voting.

Impeach Obama today or tomorrow and throw him in jail.

What Options Do We Have? I Am Frightened.

It's no time to be frightened or to surrender - the Republicans still hold the House and Obama will sprout lame-duck feathers in less than a year. The GOP must resist Obama's initial second-term legislative push - Boehner needs to do his job and the milk-sops in the GOP need to be kept in line. And the RINOs need to finally pay a price for their pusillanimousness. That includes Gov. Christie - a star-struck, unprincipled fool who helped re-elect Obama tonight in exchange for the opportunity to play groupie to Bruce Springsteen.

The best option conservatives have is to go out, wins hearts and minds to true conservatism and bring this country back to the principles which made it great. Conservatives can't abandon the educational system, the MSM, and the entertainment industry to the liberals and expect no consequences.
