GONE FOREVER
Self | Nov. 6, 2012 | upcountry horseman

Posted on 11/06/2012 9:14:10 PM PST by upcountryhorseman

The America we knew is lost: self reliance, individualism, The ability to achieve the American Dream is lost! The reason why is very simple, The tipping point has been reached, too many people now depend on the goverment for their well being and will do nothing to stop the gravy train. They will vote democrat (socialist)every time now. If anyone tells me they voted for Obama, I will tell they they have destroyed the Country!

Brit Hume made the point tonight that self-described “moderates” are really liberals.

We are no longer a center-right country. We want the same things Europeans have.

Only Europeans can’t pay for their welfare state and we are rapidly approaching the same fiscal cliff as they are now facing.

Ayn Rand envisioned this possibility. And Ayn Rand envisioned a response to this possibility: Go Galt!

We all need to discuss seriously the various ways we can “Go Galt.”

Agreed. We are now in a forever downward spiral. Illegal and parasite voters have won and will suck us dry. But we still have the governors, House, and state rights, so let’s see where that goes. Perhaps many of the states will simply say, “Eff you libtards, we aint gonna do it!”

I don’t know the average age or race of Freepers. But the Democratic party is now clearly the party of the future. It held onto its under the age of 35 vote and its female vote - in other words the people who are going to have kids, have the jobs, have the income, and drive where this country is going. It also grew its hispanic vote, another group of growth.

So to say that our country is doomed because it’s led by the party of growth is wrong I think. The GOP is simply acting like a dinosaur.

We are all slaves now. What an irony for this great country. The first black president reestablishes slavery. We are all slaves and the gov is our master. We get free food, free drugs, free birth control, free day care, free education, free phones, free free free. All it will cost is your freedom. Sign up now!! Psst— who pays when all the goodies are gone and there is no more pay for the promises?

Pretty much my thinking watching the celebrators. Now that it’s out that our country is up for sale to the candidate who most supports lazy assclowns for a shoe-in... the slide down the scale of world respect accelerates. Shame on those who thought not voting wouldn’t make a difference.

I DISAGREE.

I have largely held it inside this campaign, but now I see no reason to hold it in any more:

We have sold out America. We. You and I and every other American.

To China, and to a lesser extent to every other country.

We have sold out America. Every time another American manufacturing plant was moved to China, more Americans were unemployed.

Now we bring America back.

We re-build America.

America first.

So, Romneycare, allowing a railroading of gays calling themselves married, etc.. This failed to inspire the people? What a fricken shock. Liberal vs liberal, only liberals win. The Five years, Romney campaigned in New Hampshire, and it wasn’t even close.

The ‘ideal’ candidate lost. GOPe promised us it’d be all good, and instead the loss was locked in. Obama, with negatives up the wazo, wins against empty suit. What a shock. After McCain’s example, we do the most liberal thing possible.. We do the same thing again, expecting different results. Insanity.

I put this on my FBook page tonight...

Okay I’m 100% serious here...if you voted for Obozo, I really do not want you as a FB friend. We probably don’t have much in common anyway, so KINDLY UNFRIEND ME! I seriously doubt if we will miss each other.

In case the above isn’t clear, let me clarify: IF YOU VOTED FOR OBAMA, THE COMMUNIST-LEANING MUSLIM MORON WHO OPPOSES OUR FOUNDING PRINCIPLES, PLEASE “UNFRIEND” ME. I have no interest in maintaining our FAKE “friendship”. Best friend, childhood pal, high school classmate, or immediate family, THIS MEANS YOU. Again, if you voted for Obozo, PLEASE UNFRIEND ME NOW, and enjoy the rest of your government-oppressed lives. Make no mistake...lines are being drawn in this country. I’m drawing mine NOW.

I totally expect lose half of my FB friends, however we weren’t really “friends”, and it’s not really a “loss” to me (or you). I’d much rather focus on people I actually have something in common with. I’ve already shrugged off several Obamabots without any regret or so much as a glance over my shoulder.

No hard feelings on my end, in fact I appreciate your honesty.

I remember Election Night four years ago, when the race was called for BO. I heard whoops out in the street, hollering, catcalls, people driving around honking their horns.

Tonight, outside my window, I hear ... silence.

Nope...all those things will return when the federal and state governments collapse under the weight of all that debt. There will be a collapse....it's unavoidable at this point. Best to be prepared and be able to endure it all the way to the other side.

Yep. The Takers “won” this evening. However, as we zoom past $20+ Trillion in debt that short term buzz from receiving even more goodies will come crashing down when we GO BROKE.

Just like the movie 2016 depicts, this nation is going to have to endure the worst economic conditions since the ‘Great’ Depression.

I never liked Mittens and I couldn’t stand his liberal policy positions.

I saw no reason to vote for him. He wouldn’t have done anything substantially different from Obama. When faced with a choice between two liberal candidates, America, not too unreasonably, chose the genuine article.

Americans are not that stupid!

Today was the final act of a country committing suicide with half the people thinking they had voted themselves into heaven.

While conservatives will rail with a thousand different places to put the blame, all ignore the root cause. They deal only with symptoms. And dealing with symptoms will never result in a cure.

As I’ve posted here many times, my mother was a typist with the FBI in WWII, and typed with her fingers the Communist plans for the destruction of the USA - all to be done internally. Everything they have planned is coming to pass.

Major first steps were the take-over of the educational system, resulting in a dumbed-down, catatonic, brain-washed, easy-to-be-led and deceived population.

Add to that the takeover of the media, to continue the brainwashing and promoting the marxist/atheist mindset.

Now we have enough of the electorate who are dupes willing to commit suicide for the nickel of goodies from the state, and protection of their narrow self-interest - like homosexuality.

Half our nation just voted for:
1. Increased unemployment;
2. Financial disaster from unrestrained spending and borrowing;
3. Bowing to Muslim demands and interests;
4. Greatly increased size and control of government;
5. Loss of freedoms, especially religious;
6. Undoing the 2nd Ammendment in totality;
7. Promotion of sexual promiscuity in all forms and the destruction of the traditional family;
8. Inflation and soon skyrocketing prices for fuel, food, and all necessities. Probable hyperinflaion.
9. The continued cult-like following and obeisance to an idol: Barack Obama.
10. The destruction and elimination of small businesses.

I could add more, but time precludes that.

But Reagan nailed it when he said when we are an nation no longer under God, we are a nation gone under.

A thousand Rush Limbaugh’s will not remedy the situation. The Republican Party is not the solution - they are part of the problem. Note the wing of the GOP that hates those against abortion. Perfect example.

Only a deep repentance and turning to God as described in II Chronicles 7:14 will bring a change.

But we are unwilling to repent. We want our goodies, and liberties, not unlike the 47% want their goodies.

In refusing to repent, we sign our own death warrant.

I am not a prophet, but I predict that Obama will continue to destroy our nation and take our liberties for not just 4 more years - but for 12. He will make a way to stay in office for 12 more years - until his task is finished.

Perhaps God will be merciful, and things will get bad enough that we will repent.

Understand that the powers that be don’t want the leeches hanging around picking up free cell phones. The phones and other goodies are just to get them into power. These people are lazy and won’t work. The powers want them exterminated. And the idiots just volunteered to be exterminated. They’ll do it through drugs, abortions, poor healthcare, etc. What the powers want are big strong people willing to dig ditches and work for little or nothing. Like, say, the Mexicans.

Here is what will soon happen. Because slightly more than 1/2 the people have chosen to keep traveling the same path, America will quite quickly fall into a very deep depression with runaway inflation. The unemployment rate will climb into double digits before the end of 2013, due in part to the effects of Obamacare and our government tax policy pushing us over the fiscal cliff. The pain will be unbearable and in 4 years the voters will truly be ready to embrace either conservative leadership again or else we will have war.

You’re right in the long term.
No question about it.
The question for all Americans and their families is how to best manage the inevitable decline that’s sure to follow.
Let Democrat voters whine to their Homocrat politicians and failed government bureaucracies when some misfortune befalls them.
A President Romney would’ve given the whiners more just by crying ‘racism’.
All the Homocrats have left to them now is more lies and hypocrisy.
