Support Group for Conservatives
self | 11/8/12 | self

Posted on 11/08/2012 5:46:41 AM PST by Jerrybob

We need a support group for this post-election period. I'm feeling a cross between a bad dream and like someone died....

Here’s the long term plan: Conservatives move to red States whenever there’s a choice. Two job offers? Take the red State job. Same with retirement. The best way for us to be happy is to move away from Democrats.

We don’t need a support group. We need to get prepped.

It’s understandable because real conservatives on some level understand the tumultuous events that Obama’s re-election will result in. Remember though, it is part of God’s plan. We can’t pretend to think that our will is above His. Although we know this will be hard, we should be glad because we know who wins. We have to pray for Obama, and do what is right.

With Jesus, we understand that God is love, and the hurt comes from sin. Just prior to Obama’s re-election we saw Hurricane Sandy pound the NE, the famine, and an earthquake, get the message? Obama represents everything that opposes God, and that along with the state of affairs of the world, is not a good sign. Many of us sense days of tribulation or “End of Days” as we know it. Look for the end of Israel, attacks on Catholics, poverty, sickness, deception, etc, but remember we are saved. If they don’t see it now, just wait. I suggest we pray, beg for forgiveness, and ask for everything we need from our real King, and He will give it to us with love.

We need to do a better job at evangelizing God’s love, than the “Global Warming” gods do at pretending that humanity is in control. Christians aren’t supposed to accept, we are supposed to love, like He loves us. Pray for Obama.

No time for self indulgence. Now we need to concentrate on surviving.

Here's one:

The Real Mitt Romney

Romney Praised Hezbollah's Healthcare System

You should feel a little better about the loss after those two

Exactly. We need a national leader now to help direct our efforts. Our own president if you will.

I can take care of myself, thanks. It’s one of the benefits of being a conservative. Leave the group-hugs to the liberals.

I’m upset, too, but I’m not going to be like one of those weepy Democrats in 2004 that became so deranged over Bush’s victory that they flooded mental health wards.

Conservatives are, by definition, a strong, self-reliant, resilient bunch. We’ll get through this and so will you.

We need our churches to become the centers of a literal resistance. I ‘d be at church all the time if it involved battle planning.

The 5 Stages of Loss and Grief

1. Denial and Isolation
2. Anger
3. Bargaining
4. Depression
5. Acceptance

This election reminds me of the above.
Each one of us are going through these stages - I have a combination of all of them (except #5!)

I hope we don’t ever get to #5
The Government is counting on us getting to #5
“Their” country can’t work (as they plan) until the “makers” get to #5

Don’t be a #5

Look at who’s up for reelection in the Senate in 2014...could b good for GOP if we play our cards right. Also those up for reelection in very very red states may not go along with Reid’s agenda. Seriously...go look..google it...would post link but not a great poster...especially on smartphone.

Somebody with PASSION and FIRE. Many of the conservatives are terrific, but we need somewith that can CONVINCE. I’m thinking like Rubio. Gov Walker would be great, but he’s quiet and reserved. Maybe I’m wrong.

This family is continuing to live its very fulfilled life, too. What I would like to see, however, is a better ground game by US, the conservatives. No more circular firing squad. For those who actively worked against Romney (and you know who you are), from now on, this conservative is ignoring you. Totally. You’ve done your damage. I’m sure you are happily posting on the liberal websites.

We survived the Carter years, the Clinton years. We’ll survive this.

I never felt good about his nomination, but I was disturbed at Gingrich and Perry attacking him as a “vulture capitalist,” just feeding the image that the Dems wanted.
My opinion of those two won’t be improved, ever.

How I feel about the loss? How should I feel when the difference is only the speed of the handbasket? American took the speedier choice.

Now, the GOP will be encouraged to move to the center and make deals with the Dems, and moving to the center always, always, always, having the government reach evern deeper into our ever shallower pockets.

I feel terrible about the loss. I would have felt less terrible about a victory.

I feel like drinking so much over the next 4 years that I’ll naturally transition to AA! I guess I’ll get to a support group quick enough.

I’m with you on that. I’m done with politics. I don’t think Republicans or any other possible new party will ever be able to turn off the Democrats and their grab for every possible vote under the sun. Too many people eager to grab handouts and get freebies. No way to ever combat that, so “hunker in the bunker” is now my attitude. Get supplies, stay focused on my small community, keep going to church, family-only priorities, and let the world explode/implode around me. Call it what you will, but for my family’s sake I can’t handle the political junk any more. It is what it is, and it will be what it will be. My realistic/pessimistic side has taken over and will be in place now for a long, long time.

I’m trying to enjoy simpler things these days, and getting back into my hobbies. That may sound really ditzy, but at least it’s very calming! :)

Try to have a nice day...

Needs to be repeated often. I spent Tuesday night and Wednesday morning in a stunned state. I'll admit I felt betrayed by the idiots in my country. I still do. But by Wednesday afternoon, I was getting angry again.

No more self pity...that feels defeatist to me. The marxist got re-elected. That sucks. Put on your big boy pants and get back to doing whatever you do. If you want to feel emotions feel determination and anger.

Conservatives ARE the support group. They support everybody else and are tired of it. Maybe what is needed for Conservatives is a way to become the NONsupport Group and let everyone else be surprised when the money dries up, let them hold hands and cry together.They take from you AND they detest you, like an ungrateful insolent teen ager.

Obama cannot get re-elected again...: )

But he's going to preside over the continuing expansion of the welfare state and lay the groundwork for the next Democrat President to "finish the job I've started". And, just like Clinton, we'll see him on the campaign trail Forever!!!

thanks, but gotta go where my husband’s job is, so we get to stay here in the heart of Dixie for a lot longer. That’s ok, tho’ cuz there are really good people around here, both of our families are within 1 day’s drive, and it’s the Bible Belt. Loved driving thru Kansas when we came across country—the folks we met at every stop were always so nice!

So sad that the coastline populations drive the political bus. They depend on the good folks in the interior part of the country (they mock us by calling us dumb rednecks, or in Kansas’s case, “flyover country”) but we have been the hard rock foundation for this country. They are on sandy soil, and nothing can stand on that for long...

"Look at who is up for re-election in the Senate in 2014." I posted a similar thought on another site this morning. In retrospect, we should have focused on the Senate this time. If we had gotten a majority and ousted Harry Evil Reid, then we could impeach Obama. The House starts impeachment proceedings, then the Senate finishes. The Evil one would block every effort in this regard. BUT, 2014 is just two years away. Let us all start NOW working on electing conservatives to replace all Senators up for re-election. I don't know how many there are, but I am going to check right now.

Doesn't matter. There will never be another Republican president -- not with this electorate.....

We need a conservative who has a plan to address the screw that globalism is to Americans and about ending the police state/KGB Bammy and the Rinos have built in the aftermath of 911.

We need to talk about the ever building and hardening police state war on drugs and it’s abuse of innocent citizens.

“Obama cannot get re-elected again...: “

We’ll see about that. I’m sure that “problem” is being worked on at the White Hut even as we speak.

I was in shock until this morning. Paralyzed. Grief striken. Wanted to cry, but couldn’t. Then something weird happened. I was cutting onions for soup and the onions made me cry. Immediately, on the BBN radio network, two songs played — “No More Night” and “Finally Home”. They’re both beautiful, about Heaven, and then the onion crying turned into the other kind. The songs put the whole election thing into perspective. Had a good cry. Now I feel better. Moving on. Ignoring Democrats and Republicans. I feel better since I gave up hope.
