Posted on 11/07/2012 7:20:22 PM PST by jacheff
Its as if the twin towers were just blown to hell by the 19 Arab jihads as my eyes stay glassy dropping tears all through the day. I cant shake the feeling that my country is vulnerable and at the mercy of evil as we must try to endure another 4 years.
Its so frightening because the majority of my fellow citizens believe that Obama cares so much for the little guy. Yet as our country destroys the value of the dollar we become more and more vulnerable. It is as if I am the child in the street watching Obama parade by me naked adorning his new clothes. He is wearing nothing. I know he is naked but you insist he is bedecked in golden threads .because he said so.
If only there were one classy Liberal like JFK left in America who knew where the greatness of America came from, the souls who risked it all and operated on a dream. Some made it big - pat them on the back! As JFK noted, A rising tide lifts all boats.
Businesses should pack it up and holler, Where is John Galt? They have been so demonized by the Democratic Party to be used as any high control group uses a bogeyman to gain power. These Alpha men and women are not thanked for all the jobs that they have created for the workers. They are spit upon as if they are some curse to be abused. I fear we will have to lose our country to gain it back if ever.
My country how I mourn for thee...
Well said. Most of my co-workers today and myself are at the pissed off stage. Being angry masks the fear and despair we feel for the loss of our country. Sickened.
Can you imagine a democrat today saying “Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country” ????
I’m with ya’. I put on a good face for the kids this morning when they were disappointed that Romney lost. Told them “God is in charge and on the throne.....and has the ultimate authority.” Picked them up from school and they still had long faces as they talked to friends who can’t stand Obama and voiced their opinions on the election.
I am still heart sick.......because I worry for them.
Tucked them in, again, and reminded them.
If you believe in God, He is in control.
That is the only that has kept my sanity today.
I’m looking forward to the economy crashing and burning under Obama’s reign of terror, to prove to the fools who voted for him how wrong, and stupid, they were. I’ll be smiling if this happens. Just being honest.
I have to tell you that I read your post after vehemently refusing any of the many, many vanities posted here today.
My heart is broken. I can’t stop crying thinking of what will happen to my country now.
after vehemently refusing any = after vehemently refusing to read any
I, too, shed tears today as I poured my heart out to the Lord.
(Not that I thought Romney was the “answer” because Jesus is the only answer, but I had prayed leading up to the election for God’s mercy on our land and thought he would use Romney as the instrument to right our sinking ship.)
I kept reminding myself today, God is still on the throne, He knows where we are, this election didn’t surprise Him, and He still has a plan. I just don’t happen to know the details of His plans.
Prayers for our country again tonight. Prayers for believers to remain faithful to His calling.
Who would have thought that 11 years after 9/11 we would be electing a guy named Barack Hussein Obama to a second term? A guy who has shunned our biggest ally in the Middle East and has been propping up a group called the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the region.
I would’ve sooner thought pigs could fly.
I’ve been crying several times since the first election returns came coming in. I just have been SOBBING. Sobbing in the shower, in the car, all over the place. I just really didn’t want to live the 2nd half of my life struggling through this sort of thing.
I have been proud to be an American since I was 5 years old. I’ve grown up red, white, and blue. I came from a pretty unpretentious background, but took advantage of every opportunity to work hard, get an education, marry well, and hubby and I have worked for every dime. I’ve always been amazed by and so confident in America — we have always been SO powerful, SO giving, so smart, so STRONG ... I had so many dreams for a better future ...I really feel they’ve been trashed and life is going to be one huge struggle from now on.
I’ve been poor — it’s not fun. I do NOT want to go back to it. I’ve seen evil in my lifetime. I’ve seen communism close up, in E. Germany when it was still East and West. I’ve seen this stuff ...and it’s NO FUN. People do NOT get this ...how bad this is going to get. Our crash is going to be sudden, and hard. Look at us during a hurricane ...we’re entirely fragile and weak — one could knock us over with a feather.
I cry for my kids and their kids. I cry for the decent men and women who gave their lives for us to live our lives decently ...and here we go and vote in this evil thing.
I like to think there’s still a lot of hope, as 50% really do reject these liberal principles, it seems, every single time ....our side needs to learn how to get that advantage ..that edge that puts us over the top just once ...so we could rebuild. I’m not sure there are enough of us now to do that ....so, it’s going to TAKE A GENERATION or two of stopping all this contraception and building large families again. I’d like to think there were some kids out there like that ...but they are rare.
Sorry for the long rant ...I’m distraught.
I think many of us are in a flight of fight mode right now.

Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat 1801-1850
Protect yourself, protect your family. Produce, prepare, conserve. Go Galt as much as possible. DEFUND socialism. It's easy. It's fun. You prosper, are prepared AND enjoy life.
For crying out loud. How did we ever win WWII? Some Democrat grifters got elected.....big deal. They didn’t overwhelm us. Obama is not some superman who is going to get everything he wants. The Democrats want you to cry and give up so they can steal more from the public treasury. These Democrats aren’t throat-cutting communists. I’ve been around real communists. They didn’t go golfing or shopping at Nordstroms. Our Democrats are just grifters.....thieves. Look at Obama. Who in their right mind would be scared of him? He’s just a dirty little money-grubbing grifter. Do you think the guys in the black uniforms are coming for us? They’ll come once. Their families live in our neighborhoods. Too much risk for them and I don’t believe that most of them would want to knowingly kill American citizens. We just have a bad case of vermin being elected. Vermin always ruin their habitat and then die off. It will happen to them.
Stop your whining and start preparing.
I know what you mean.. My husband and I slept maybe 3 hours last night trying to digest this tragedy. I received this ‘forward’ from a friend this afternoon. Although I feel like God has forsaken us, I have to believe that there is a reason for everything including this.
After the Election
Tonight, after the election is over, I can predict (and guarantee) the following results:
1. God will still be on His throne
2. Jesus will still be King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
3. The Bible will still have all the answers to every problem.
4. The tomb will still be empty.
5. Jesus will still be the only way to heaven
6. Prayer will still work - it will still make a difference and God will still answer prayer
7. The cross, not the government, will still be our salvation
8. There will still be room at the cross.
9. Jesus will still save anyone who places their faith and trust in Him.
10. God will still be with us always - He will never leave us or forsake us.
I have been mad all day. I went for a long walkand saw changing beautiful leaves, it reminded me of who has control. My God is more powerful than any man or power here on earth..I have been praying asking for His Grace and guiding Hand many times through the day.
Thank you for that. Yes, it is in His Hands and not ours.
Anger is not what I have been feeling, though. My overriding emotion is sadness. It feels just like my experience with losing a loved one. On election night, I actually cried myself to sleep.
All day Wednesday, I was on the verge of tears, but I had to push it all to the background, as I will have to do for the next week because, yesterday, I picked up my 4-year-old grandson for a visit. But is is thinking about him and my other grandsons that makes me so sad for the loss of our sacred liberty and our divine trust.
