About Tuesday’s Loss: If The Archangel Michael Were On The Ballot, Beelzebub Would Still Have Won
RedState ^ | November 7, 2012

Posted on 11/08/2012 9:39:23 AM PST by NCjim

For a few brief moments over these last few weeks, I almost let wishful thinking overcome common sense and reason and almost believed right would overcome wrong, good overcome evil, and liberty overcome statism. In hindsight, however, it truly was wishful thinking and it was brief, that momentary lapse of reason, that fool’s folly of letting myself even ponder for a minute that Mitt Romney had a snowball’s chance in hell to actually pull it off.

Last night’s loss was destined to happen regardless whether Mitt Romney or the Archangel Michael were on the ballot. Beelzebub would still have still won.

Perhaps, at some point, after all the finger pointing and circular firing squads have stopped pointing fingers and shooting at each other, and after the talking heads have stopped hypothesizing about why Mitt Romney is not the 45th President of the United States, someone will dig a little deeper and realize that, what the Left accomplished on Tuesday was not an accident. Barack Obama’s victory certainly wasn’t based on merit, nor was it based on a lack of enthusiasm for Mitt Romney, or his being a bad candidate (though there is an argument to be had there).

Tuesday’s loss boiled down to two simple things that the Right still doesn’t quite get:

It came down to boots on the ground, and leaving egos at the door.

If it was “boots” on the ground that won this for obama, why did he get 9,000,000 less votes than he got in 2008? No, it wasn’t “boots” on the ground. It was “thugs and cheats” on the ground. And if the republicans, or any other party, doesn’t figure this out the democrats will be in control until this country ends up in the history books.

False premise. Obama got 10 million less votes than in 2008. The enthusiasm was not there and yet a RINO, once again, stole defeat from the jaws of victory.

And paper-trail free electronic voting bolstered by Spain based, Soros owned Scytl counting the votes, and massive repeat voting by democrat operatives.

Most people know the Stalin quote:

The people who cast the votes decide nothing.
The people who count the votes decide everything.
Most people have never heard the first line of that quote, the line that defines this election:
It is enough that the people know there was an election.

Absolute truth posted there.

It is enough that Americans knew there was an election.

Americans who cast the votes decide nothing.

Marxists who count the votes, decided everything.

Spare me. Mitt couldn't even match McCain's vote totals from 2008. Ten million voters did not pull the lever for Obama this time. Romney failed to win just about all of them to his side, they just didn't vote.

When the final results are all in, that 9mm gap will close to something more like a 6mm gap.

That gap represents lots of non-machine voters who went to the polls out of excitement in 2008.

Those votes were hard to recapture. But the Democrats did get every voter known to the machine out to vote.

They were extremely well-organized in real time.

Every time someone they had on their list voted early, they removed the name and focused more closely on the remaining ones who had not voted yet.

They were ruthlessly efficient.

And, of course, there was plenty of fraud as well.

I thought it was Beelzebub vs Beelzebub. If the Archangel was represented, he was on a third party ticket.

Most of those 9,000,000 voters were still around come 2012. Mitt failed to draw the vast majority of them in, they just didn't vote. I agree there was more than usual Dem cheating, but that doesn't explain the failure of Mitt to even reach the level that McCain reached in a bad year for Republicans. And after the banner year for the GOP in 2010.

The answer is clear as day. The GOP-e would rather lose than embrace that answer (hint - hot beverage popular over in Britain). As they showed in losing a very winnable election.

Well, I'll tell you what. I figure Barry has some assistance from Beelzebub whether he's aware of it or not because I don't see how millions of conservatives stayed home unless they were spiritually encouraged to give in to their pride and selfishness the same way the greedy were spiritually encouraged to give in to their greed and selfishness.

If that's not enough, then when you get right down to it, you have to figure that the good Lord has had it with us. Sixty million dead infants murdered by abortion and at a bare minimum that many more murdered in the womb by contraceptives has to be a stench the Lord can't ignore. He may not yet have decided to punish us but it's a sure thing He won't be saving us from ourselves as I feel He has in the past. I also don't expect any special blessings or protections from the Lord that history shows we've had in the past.

People who think their personal purity is based on how they vote but ignore a chance to at the very least slow down the mass murder of infants are either blind or delusional.

Mitt was correct when he spoke of the 47% on entitlement programs who wouldn’t vote for him. Add in the remainder of blacks (not on welfare) and die-hard liberals who will always vote for the democrat, and there’s no way any republican will get elected again. Wonder how the # of people in entitlement programs has changed since Bush was elected in 2004.

That still fails to explain how Romney, in a bad year for Democrats, failed to reach the number of votes McCain got in 2008, a very bad year for Republicans.

I think Mitt and the GOP-E need to look in the mirror for that one.

The election is a direct sign of the soon coming of our Lord Jesus. The election of a baby killing, communist, dictorial president along with states approving homosexual marriages and recreational drug use all point to end of the age. Three of the things God hates most have become law of the land. God will not be mocked forever and I believe we are already feeling the judgement of God.

I don't anticipate things to ever improve politically or economically. Jesus told us that before His return it would be like the days of Noah and we are there. Come quickly Lord Jesus!

I will say it again, it was all about who was willing to give away more “freebies”.
This is a freebie nation and that is not going to change with the demographics the way it is. Free phones, free housing, free transportation, free food, free healthcare, etc.
The Hispanic population isn't growing over here because we have lots of work, it is growing because they get lots of freebies. They are also increasing their citizenship ratings because they get more freebies that is not available to us who “make too much money”. They work under the table to make sure they don't show too much income.
A lot of blacks already accomplished the goals of the freebie nation and now the Hispanic population is catching on fast.
Single female moms are also jumping a ride on the gravy train. They stay unmarried and keep the sidekick dads off the rolls and all for that cushy single mommy cash.

Which is why I think the dumping of blame on Chris Christie is a bit over the top. Look at the internals and our problems run way, way deeper than an ill-advised photo op.

The Lord is 'punishing' 'us' as a nation? Individuals choose hell by how they live their lives. I'm happy living in my state -- who is in the White House doesn't affect me that much.

I don’t know about beelzebub, but “Barrak”bus certainly did.

If Christ had run, “Barrak”bus would have been chosen instead!

How many votes did he get? I’m asking because I can only use free web search engines and they don’t return results that minucule.

"How many votes did he (Virgil Goode) get?

Apparently not that many. Gary Johnson the Libertarian candidate got 1.1 million. Jill Stein of the Green party got 378 thousand. And apparently Virgil Goode got less than those two. I'm disappointed in that showing, but I don't think he was seriously campaigning.

I'm with you, Rash. For this country to elect Nobama with all his failures, I believe there is a huge spiritual war going on over the US. The enemy has placed a veil over those who will not see. And God has washed his hands of the US of A because of our sin. HE, in his permissive or perfect will, gave us Nobama, not once, but twice, just as he gave the Israelites bad leaders when they were disobedient, to the point of destroying Israel and sending the Jews to all points in the world. The only thing that keeps me sane is knowing that God is in control and He has a plan that will come to fruition very soon. For those of you who know about that plan, check out the Dispensation topic on FR. Back in 2007, Pastor JD (you can find him on youtube) stated (and I heard) that he believed the next President of the US would be against Israel.

I agree. Mitt, like McCain, was forced on us. Neither were a choice of conservatives. My sister, a flaming liberal (one of four), kept posting talking points about Mitt being a liar. She doesn’t have a clue what Nobama has lied about. She refuses to listen, yet she would continue to post about Mitt lying and changing his position on issues. We need someone who has never waivered—hard to find. And we need to get better control of the process. It would be great if the RNC would do some caucusing before the primaries, so that there’s not 12 candidates with the convention delegates spread between them. Something has to change.

Like Barabas, Barackas almost did major fed time.

Rezko was pressured by feds to flip on Barackas along with Rod Blagojevich.

Also like Barabas, Barackas is a maniac who the people preferred over—I can’t even say it.
