We have lost

We have lost.....

The most productive people, the small business owners, the entrepreneurs and the honest wage earners of America are so demoralized right now I am not sure we will recover as a country. We have lost the most important election of our lifetime and did so after giving our best effort, spent the most money ever and working the hardest we have ever worked. The very people that America needs the most to generate a real recovery now have the least motivation to do so and worse, lack the confidence necessary to even justify the effort.

We opposed a foe that was so obviously incompetent, corrupt and inept in leadership we really expected a landslide victory and a redeeming mandate to return the nation to conservative values. Instead what we got was a harsh slap in the face by an America public telling us it is not like us and it does not any longer believe in what we believe in. As a country we are hopelessly divided by a malignant polarization approaching that similar to the time around the civil war. Our side will not march in the streets, never the less the rebellion, protests and resistance will be just as determined but more subtle. The American can do spirit, our optimism, our traditional dependence on our own ingenuity is now mere kindling on the advancing flame of an insidious yet steadily advancing socialism.

Those of us who create real jobs, invest our capital, our fortunes and take the risks to build America, feel betrayed. The fundamentals of honest effort and hard work rendering the rewards associated with capitalism seem now like a cruel joke. We are now a targeted enemy not to be governed but coerced into submission by a lazy, corrupt, vindictive, arrogant government that is out for revenge, redistribution and to add a final insult, one we find too morally bankrupt to lead. The usual safe guards for a democracy found in a vibrant independent press have lost any semblance of objectivity and instead have joined a side. What used to be principled Independent reporters have morphed into dishonest pundits spewing a disgusting relentless partisan bile that neither informs nor educates. They are shallowly manipulated by the political marketers to the point their words lack meaning. The "fourth branch" of government has become nothing more than an empty cathode ray irradiating a mind numbed audience like a repetitive Beaves n' Butthead rerun.

We have elected a President who not only feels we did not work for what we have but feels we do not deserve either. Had it gone the other way, Obama supporters would have torched America. Instead they will now legitimately consume it by gnawing at the soft underbelly of what was once her prosperity. Our Judeo-Christian culture now having as much meaning as a 3 minute Youtube video. It is however as the Bible had forewarned, ours is a world turning over where good is bad, and bad is good. God help us all. He is our last refuge.

I just received this as a forwarded email from a good conservative and patriotic friend.

What it tells is the withering of the social state of our nation.

Yes we are screwed.

People seem to have forgotten all of the success we had in the 2010 elections.

If you are operating at a loss, stumbling under ever more fees, permits and taxes, don’t see any hope, maybe it is time to stop pulling the wagon for the looters and go Galt.

It was stolen in some states and given away in some others.

It was given away in some states by those good strong conservatives and Christian evangelicals who could not be sullied with voting for someone who was not their perfect candidate. So they gave us Obama again.

yes.. we lost... but we owe it to Abe Lincoln, George Washington, to our boys who died fighting for us, to keep fighting.

we don’t have the right to give up. we must endure and continue.

All is not lost. We have the House, enough Senate seats to prevent super majority, 30 Republican Governors and over half conservative population. We’ve hardly lost just need to regroup on our battles.

#1 to me is to lose Boehner as Speaker and get someone in there who still wants to fight Obamacare.

The decadent and demented have crowned the barbarian Obama. The pigs have won. If you have the unfortunate reality of actually knowing actual Obama voters, never trust them, and have only the most superficial relationship possible. These lowlifes are have ruined a once great country.

Geeeze. Talk about defeatist!

The left had someone to vote FOR. He promised every left wing interest group something for nothing. All the scrounges came running for their goodie.

Romney had a very liberal past. No one trusted him. An equal number of Republicans came out to vote as the parasites, but they just had a few more.

The problem is the Republican in the beltway always think a "moderate" is the way to win an elections, and they're always wrong. The working people, those who slave to pay for the entire Washington empire as well as the entire democrat base have no one to vote FOR. What difference, to them, does it make to vote? No one speaks on their behalf. They'll still get up in the morning and pay, pay, pay. Nothing would change for the slaves no matter who won.

If the Republicans want to take this country back, they're going to have to start freeing the tax slaves. There are millions and millions of us out here just waiting for a Moses(R) to come along.

“Together through ages of the world we have fought the long defeat.”

– The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien

I have joined the long defeat
that falling set in motion
and all my strength and energy
are raindrops in the ocean

so conditioned for the win
to share in victor’s stories
but in the place of ambition’s din
I have heard of other glories

and I pray for an idea
and a way i cannot see
it’s too heavy to carry
and impossible to leave

I can’t just fight when I think I’ll win
that’s the end of all belief
and nothing has provoked it more
than a possible defeat

we walk a while we sit and rest
we lay it on the altar
I won’t pretend to know what’s next
but what I have I’ve offered

and I pray for a vision
and a way I cannot see
it’s too heavy to carry
and impossible to leave

Actually, I am starting to view this as a good thing. A Romney presidency wouldn’t have been our “salvation”; indeed, it would’ve only been a long string of disappointments, I am afraid.

No, as I have believed for some time now, and only feel more confident about now, this is a battle of the states. Arkansas has both of its state houses now controlled by the GOP—this is a first since Reconstruction. Other red states are very red, and their governorships and legislatures are hunkering down for a fight. I don’t see this as a fold-up shop and go home kind of defeat; instead, it is a moment where Americans will start putting energy and focus in their LOCAL level of government and fight against Washington from that perspective.

There is still a lot of fight left.

You are dreaming. Dreams are OK but unrealistic dreams simply set you up for disappointment.
