I was SO wrong! (Welcome to AmeriKa)
Vanity ^ | worst day | myself

Posted on 11/07/2012 12:17:09 PM PST by RavenLooneyToon

I feel so stupid. I have an accredited IQ of over 160, and it seems I am an idiot. I have been put in my place. If given 99 more times to vote against socialism and Obama I would because because logic would dictate no other action. But I was truly wrong and stupid to over estimate the intelligence of the common person. I was wrong and stupid to under estimate the selfishness and immorality of the self entitled cursed with the inability to reason. I hold no anger or contempt for the unwashed masses that have sentenced us all to mediocrity followed by abject failure. The only humane reaction is to pity those that lack the ability to reason, lack the confidence and perseverance to trust in ones self ability to be productive and to survive. For they will be robbed of the feeling of achievement which is what separates the human being from the poop throwing primates. Today we bid farewell to the world's last good hope of freedom. The once shining light of productive spirit and moral fortitude has been quenched. We will all bear the price of the immoral self entitled electorate. We will all pay the invoice levied by the uninspired. To Ben Franklin, John Adams,Thomas Jefferson, and the other founders... Thank you. It was a good run. Your experiment worked for two hundred years and produced the greatest of all in history. Thanks for the memories.

CS Lewis (I think) said we only truly come to Christ when we are disillusioned - that is, when we see things as they truly are and say, “Lord, I can’t handle this by myself”.

Maybe this will result in some of the sheeple figuring it out.

Please don’t turn into an elitist snob. Then the liberals will have won. The fact is that things aren’t that bad right now, but it will get worse. There is a fiscal cliff that is looming in a few months, and the president inherited his $6T deficit. People need to suffer greatly before true change and revival can happen. The great depression, where people literally starved, was a pivot point which spawned the greatest generation.

I feel the same way. I see people bustling about their status quo and just shake my head...I've been accosted by triumphant liberals and I don't have the energy to even try and argue. Whats the point.

At first I blamed the envangelicals fot not turning out. But the real problem is that 51% of Americans have abandoned American values. They don't care about deficits, or foreign policy. They just want free stuff like the kid who wants a pony for Christmas and refuses to see why that is untenable.

Jesus Christ said forgive them Lord for they know not what they do, but I am not Lord, and I am not in a forgiving mood. If someone push’s this crap at me I am likely to tell them how stupid they are and punch them in their mouth.

Being IQ smart is no guarantee that you will never do or say stupid things.
The other measure of smartness how well you can avoid doing the same mistake again.
Unfortunately, yesterday half of America repeated the same mistake they did four years ago. On purpose.
That's not too smart.

Your experiment worked for two hundred years and produced the greatest of all in history. We are yet again at a turning point, but those of us who share in the vision you all had know full well what is at stake and we will see this great nation rise again.

It was a narrow defeat, not a huge one. Let’s mope for a little while, and then dust ourselves off and try again.

Let’s have a long term project of bringing the wisdom of conservatism to the general public. That must underlay a change of the tide. We must do the hard work of growing the American culture, the American Way of Life.

I’m going to make sure my children completely understand America’s founders and guiding principles. They are at the age where they can turn around and talk about it with their friends.

What will you and others be doing? No need for a quick answer. It’s worth pondering carefully, after the moping stops.

Critical thinking is a lost art and not well taught.

People are very busy. An informed voter depends on a disinterested press accurately reporting. It's not really there.

That wasn't what happened here. Obama ran on fear, ran against Bush, and the 'historical nature' of his presidency bought him a second chance.

ObamaCare is coercing larger service industry businesses to move their workforces to part time and capping the part time under 30 hours. This will push more people to work two jobs or become dependent.

With SCOTUS having green lighted the ObamaCare mandate and no GOP sweep, it's here to stay. But it's unworkable. The part time economy will stretch more people across jobs to make ends meet; more might find jobs so the fake unemployment rate may drop. But at what cost? These won't be career building jobs that keep yourself fed and housed.

Expect single-payer to be positioned as the "fix" for the failed Republican plan of ObamaCare.

IQ (and intelligence, generally-speaking) is a meaningless metric. In one sense it allows a person to claim to possess some special clairvoyant insight (which he typically does not) while also depriving him of the humility to acknowledge that he cannot recognize reality through either experience or simple observation.

I know several "brilliant" people who voted twice for Obama. Idiots.

Ted Bundy was by all accounts brilliant. Sociopathic serial killer.

No offense intended, but you are not special. We will all suffer.

I realize The Big Bang Theory is a sit-com, but I am reminded of the episode of Dr. Sheldon Cooper indicating his noted brilliance followed by the question, "Does anyone know how to open the toolbox?"

“An[d] when Obama gives amnesty to 30 million illegal immigrants soon then what ? You can’t come back from that.”

Bingo. Ditto with forcing everyone onto government-subsidized health care. In four years, a vote for a Republican will mean cutting your health care benefits. Not going to happen.

Please understand that I wasnt addressing you, per se, so much as a general belief among people with whom I have had quite heated discussions in which they reject my presented evidence and arguments simply by stating how smart they are. "Don't insult my intelligence" is often the rejoinder.

We'll all be wondering for a long time just what the hell happened last night. Let's keep our wits about us (pun intended) and figure out how to survive this coming tsunami.

Best regards, FRiend.

It could be that they actually were smarter than you're thinking: consider Romney's past, he's really liberal -- how can you get socialism out of the office by electing a socialist? You were betrayed, not by your fellows, but by the GOP leadership who had anointed Romney from before the primaries. (It's said far better here.)

Agreed, if twenty to thirty percent of qualified voters don't bother voting then what is the cause?
I believe that infiltrated communists redefined the median between the right and the left. For instance, if the Tea Party who are pro constituionalist meaning they believe in the “law of the land” are labeled as extremists, then certainly the people who don't vote see no distinguishing difference between the candidates. By moving the median point declaring law abiding citizens are extreme then the disinterested voters have no one to vote for.

I do not believe the exit polls....any of them.

I firmly believe we have just been the victims of the biggest fraud in the history of mankind.

I refuse to believe that the American people were energized to vote for President Obama yesterday.

This election could be a script from a movie, therefore, I am starting to believe it was designed as such.

I think it is far more likely that a plan has been in the works to corrupt this cycle since 2010.

Multiple blue states voted for every Democrat in statewide races by a similar count as what President Obama gained in that state.

States that typically split their statewide vote went 100% Democrat for every statewide race. That can only come from straight party-line voting.

If you wanted to demoralize your opponents, and had the ability, you would arrange the votes in a few safe districts within a few states to overwhelm the other party’s safe districts, regardless of turnout.

Then, you would ensure the exit polling contradicted everything your opponents believe, everything they expect and everything they support.

At that point, your opponents would turn on each other, re-think their beliefs and dissolve into irrelevance.

Who would have thought that four years ago, the United States would elect a man who served only 40 months in the US Senate to the White House? Who would have thought his background, his history and his performance would be protected, minimized or dismissed over the course his first term?

If an evil alliance of socialists and islamists really exist in our world, could they have engineered such events?
