Posted on 11/15/2012 4:23:11 AM PST by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle
[L]et's be honest. We had little reason to believe that Romney was truly dedicated to improving our social and cultural conditions -- indeed, that all-important thing called the human condition -- because he talked endlessly about his business experience. Most Americans don't like their bosses and have trouble with landlords and creditors. Talking about one's business experience is not usually a good way to win them over.
On election day, it became clear to me that the Republican Party had been led into Purgatory by the Laodicean wing. In case you aren't familiar with Revelation 3:14-17, here is what God says in that text:
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked[.]
Here's the simple version: stand for something important, damn it. Articulate human values. Be about something more than numbers. Be hot. Be cold. Be a flavor. Don't be Mitt Romney: lukewarm, milquetoast, centrist. The Laodiceans were warned -- God will spew thee out of His mouth. So it came to pass.
As an Evangelical values voter, I felt like I was the dirty family secret asked to come into the "big tent" through the side flap. In the end, I voted for Romney, but many people like me [...] decided to stay home and spend the day praying to God for strength. At least God, unlike the Republicans, will never forget us or be ashamed of us.

So? Obama's a lawyer. Maybe we should have hung that around his neck at every opportunity.
Not even “community organizer” sticks to bozo.
At least God, unlike the Republicans, will never forget us or be ashamed of us.
Particularly like this.
Yes, we should hang that around every lawyer's neck. The two most destructive organizations in the US are the public unions and the trial lawyers association.
Values don’t get you anywhere when the economy is in the crapper. Unfortunately, it seems like Americans like the economy the way it is.
I voted for Virgil Goode.
Those who voted for either Romney or Obama were willing to vote in a government who would kill innocent, unborn children...in government controled clinics.
That is who Romney has been ever since I first became aware of him. That is who Obama is.
Anyone who would vote for someone who will do that to the most defenseless among us - the unborn - and then criticizes those who stand against it thouroughly deserves whatever they get.
And they will be reminded of this for the rest of their lives.
When they stand before God, It will be better for them had a millstone been hung around their necks and they were cast into the depths of the sea rather than they had voted in 2012.
Particularly like this.
Co-signed. And then co-signed AGAIN. ;)
In my mind, a lawyer is one who actually practices law.
I'd say 0bama just has an advanced degree in obfuscation.
Actually, you didn’t vote. You pretended to vote for a pretend candidate.
Rather than make a hard decision for one of the two actual candidates, you took the easy, the cowards way out and merely pretended to act.
Lest you forget - Romney also has a law degree from Harvard Law School. He never practiced, but did pass the bar.
I can gulp down iced coffee, I can sip scalding hot coffee, but lukewarm coffee tastes like crap.
Romney should have been something either way, instead he was standing in the middle of the road.
The only thing that bothered me about Romney was that I think he either believes that the human race is responsible for so-called climate change or that he panders to the “demographic” that does.
Thanks for nothing or should I say Zero
Col West has opened the door.
We must fight election fraud.
It falls on We the People.

Excerpt from Mitt Romney's reference:
These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it wont do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states. Until a major group gets involved to do more, here is the plan: Contact the Secretary of State of the state in question. See contact information below...

We can not wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.
We must act NOW.
Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.
We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....
We are FReepers. We must fight!
Those who shrug and accept this atrocity without a fight are not worthy to be called Freepers!

Feel better? That’s what your vote was for wasn’t it?
Pervert, I Don’t really care how much you personally want to sacrifice babies to support your unmerited lifestyle of hedonism.
You personally are a coward.
You have never made a hard decision or deprived yourseld in your whole self centered life.
Whine as much as you like.
In the end, you are left with your emtiness, and all you have spent your life on you will recognize was of no worth.
I voted to give you what you personally deserve.
These kids who are being dismembered in the womb have value.
You, not so much.
What I’m thinking should not be written down for public viewing
“Silence is consent”
I sympathize with you, but there are factors that are in play that have totally undermined our democracy.
The most frightening is the total capitulation of the American press, from a watch dog of government to a mouth piece for the administration. with out a free press, there is no democracy. What we have witnessed was a silent coup perpetrated by the press against freedom. This is not going to change.
The Dems have seen that they can win without the white vote. This will be the future of all upcoming elections+promise people more free stuff.
“Thanks for nothing or should I say Zero”
That goes double for me.
Many will find a way to recover their senses after the moral and political debauchery that was Romney Republicanism, and remember that this is supposed to be a country premised in constitutional, republican, REPRESENTATIVE self-government, but after reading your post I’m doubtful that you will be one of them.
"Republicanism: Now Available In New Clinton, Kerry and McGovern Flavors!!!" ;)
Listen man, the future belongs to any 50 year-old as much as it belongs to a 5 year-old or a fetus. However, 50-somethings are old enough to vote and that’s what makes things happen (or not).
“It is in the personal virtues of conservative thinking — modesty, self-sacrifice, chastity, fear of God, decency — that I find a reason to be on the right side of the dial. Cut ties to the social agenda, and you will cut ties with me.”
I buy this completely, however, I also buy knowing how to budget, run a business successfully and stay in the black.
Purgatory is not Hell. If only we were being led to Purgatory we would be on our way because after our purification we would reach our goal. Instead we are being marched into the bowels of Hell by the marxist.
I believe saying anyone was thinking assumes facts not in evidence...
“People need to stop pointing fingers within the GOP and investigate the Dems’ massive voter fraud and suppression of the military vote.”
She’s absolutely right about that. We know she’s pro-life but she’s wise enough to know that we can’t afford to let go of the prime objective of running that SOB out of town.
Is Jim Jones running American Thinker?
Mincing Romney never looked more stupid than when he conceded---he remained duped and sap-happy til the end......like McDumbo/McCain.
It's becoming crystal clear why Obama seemingly "screwed-up" at the crucial first prez debate---giving Romney a huge opening (or so it seemed).
O's debate screwup was no accident----he said he was "being polite" to Romney---b/c he knew the crooked election was in the bag for him.
Ohaha and his cunning, sinister crew knew then that O would win...... no matter what Romney did or said. B/c the WH orders had already gone out----their massive voter fraud operation was already in place
I recall an odd incident as the campaign got underway----Axelrod took CBS News on a tour of what was being billed as O's campaign war room. But to my eyes---it was completely staged----there were people sitting at computers and at desks---but nothing was going on.
I now believe O had literally no campaign operation b/c they had the whole thing fixed from the get go. Oh sure---they went through the motions--but it was all faked.
O says he had the "first" billion dollar campaign---so did he report to the FEC where he spent all that money?
ANSWERING MY OWN QUESTION---as if his FEC reports (if any) will be scrutinized. Not likely.
REFERENCE Pre-election mark o'malley excerpt: "Every campaign, of course, believes its going to win. Obamas team, however, conveys such a visceral sense of self-confidence that even protestations to the contrary take on air of comically profane absurdity......"
NOW THIS IS EERY---B/C AXEL ADMITS HE KNEW WHO WAS GOING TO WIN---O'MALLEY: Axelrods way of saying that he thinks the election is already over. . . The (Romney camp has) this fantasy that the debates will come and the dam will break like it did in 1980, Axelrod said. I think they are delusional.
Clearly the sinister Axelrod knew the outcome even before the debates began. Axelrod: The (Romney camp) didnt give people anything to grab on to, and they allowed us to define him before he could define himself, Axelrod says of Romney.
SAY WHAT? Early on, O's campaign spent an astounding $300 million to tarnish Bain/Romney-----with little or no effect. Romney kept climbing in the polls----virtually every poll had Romney ahead.
Make no mistake---massive voter fraud took place---the Ohaha connivers were confident of victory b/c they were micromanaging the fraud from Day One.
We've seen some pretty shady characters in the political game---but no campaign has produced the likes of the Chi/Mob con artists running Ohaha's sleazy game.
David Axelrod has shown himself to be The Most Sinister Character ever to surface in politics. Axel, Valerie whatsherface, Rahm Emanuel, m/m Ohaha---are the kingpins of crooked Chi/politics---they are very practiced at fixing elections. They know all the sleazy tricks.
Which is it you’re attempting to identify with Jim Jones-style mania, specifically: a simple belief in mainstream Christianity, or voting for Mitt Romney?
Nothing cowardly about standing your ground while all those around you abandon their principles.
I don’t agree with Lopez’s opening statement which would not apply even to Obama. In his mind he’s changing the US and so he is. For the worst.
The apparatzick MSM morphed the contitutional birth control question forced on almost all religious groups by the demo-coms(because they’re anti-God and this should have been pointed out but wasn’t) into a personal one. MSM never reported on what the Catholic bishops were doing or the legal suits being brought against this regime. That went unchallanged
What the Romney did not do was go after the bread and butter issues that affected every demographic pocket book such as the reasons why those on fixed incomes must go on food stamps and apply for other benefits such as energy assistance etc.
That is the price of ; goods, services ,food, as well as the cost, use, and type of of energy resources, particularly coal, oil, and natural gas have all been driven up by Obama through his endless edicts, use of regulations and prohibitions all designed to change the systems of distribution and use of pleantiful resources to conform to his socialist scheme or ideal. Without any regard to the consequences.
I flooded FR replys with that issue in the hopes that there would be someone in position would pick up on it and bring it up during the campaign. Now after the loss it’s started to be discussed.
Instead we got a simplistic 20 million new jobs
Then there are the new taxes for 2013 and the reasons to dump not only Obama but elect Senators opposed to Obamacare with the warning that it will become a fact if it is not defeated Nov 6th.
Your "rationale" about Romney excludes the salient points - he consistently said that the Constitution should prevail and that States and other entities should be allowed to make their own choices without the Feds intervening. Having an opinion and wanting to force that opinion on others really does set up a true basis for discernment ... for those capable of discerning.
I hate that abercrombie store with its blaring “music” and its bags with nekked heathens on them. Last time I was there, I asked to talk to the manager about the volume of the music and told them it was driving the customers away and I also asked if they didn’t have a bag without a shaved chest on it. I was only there because my then 14 yr old wanted something from there. I cannot stand that place and it is not cool.
Now, that being said about your chosen name, I will respond to your erroneous message. Values is the only thing. Period. In good times and in bad.
This guy’s creds are destroyed by his statement that if the campaigns had been run differently he might have voted for Obama. Anyone who even considered such an action after the last four years and more is either stupid or never went to school.
A “vote” for Virgil Goode was a vote for communism. Congratulations, genius.
Yep. It is true. Mitt showed a glimmer of a hope at the first debate- that he really GOT what this fight was about. But then he lost it. It wasn’t Sandy that blew it for him, it was being mediocre. Still, I don’t think people really understand what is coming at them, as a result of letting Obama win.
Time will tell if we all make it out of this mess intact.
I like the way you think.
Given some of the shrieking and tantruming taking place in this very thread, thus far: you might just have something, there. ;)
you are a complete and total idiot
It isn’t that the majority “like” the economy the way it is,
it’s just that so many of them are not being affected by it because of the “safety net”.
If you stayed home for this election when you had the chance to remove true evil, and prayed to God for strength as this article alleges, I spew you out of my mouth.
For every election of my lifetime, there has never been a perfect candidate. Never.
But when the choice is between a man who at least has led a moral life, and a man who lies, cheats and hates America,the choice is an easy one to make.
If you sat out this election, of all elections, go away. You will never be satisfied.
In the meantime, we have to live with the folly your foolishness has now guaranteed.
I ask you, sir, who made you bert’s judge? Upon what grounds are you so righteous? All of us still reading this thread are pro life, or we would have moved onto the next thread by now. How is it you can spew the worst of your venom against your pro life brothers and sisters and somehow claim yourself above all of us?
Shame on you. When the next two pro death justices get appointed to the Supreme Court in the next three years or so, you ask yourself then what the difference was between Obama and Romney. Ask yourself, then, what the true meaning of Lukewarm is, as the next century of unborn are condemned to death.
Your vote was a vote to refuse to remove clear evil. And guaranteed government funding for the killing of another 4.5 million babies over Zippy’s second term by helping to re-elect him.
That’s right, you will actually be paying for these murders through your taxes.
Good job. Try explaining that to God when you see Him.
I think language goes over the top sometimes. This election was a real conundrum.
I am a “life” voter who did not choose until about the final 2 weeks to vote for Romney.
The reason I did so was because of “life”.
When Benghazi broke I was amazed by the attempts to sell it as the result of a silly video trailer. Then it got much more sinister.
Obama was actually decreeing that our Seals, ever faithful to not leave anyone behind, would be left to die.
He pronounced a death sentence on them. As a career military chaplain, I could not help the bitterness I felt at discovering those brave souls went to their deaths putting a laser on a target, because they just knew that their people would have their backs, that they would be there for them.
But, Obama performed a post-birth abortion on them. He directly decreed death to the living.
That was so heinous, and I was so certain that Romney would never have made that decision — that no other politician would have made that decision — that I had to recognize this was clearly a distinction in the positions held on “life” by the 2 men.
Obama’s death panels says the same thing...post-birth abortion.
His keeping troops in an Afghanistan he is leaving in a few months — only to see many of them needlessly die — says the same thing...post-birth abortion.
His sending guns into Mexico to kill innocent Mexicans says post-birth abortion.
The deaths of our border agents in that same operation says post-birth abortion.
I believe Obama kills in ways I could not conceive Romney of doing. I am convinced he enjoys post-birth abortion.
So, on the basis of that distinction, I put my X next to Romney’s name. Other than that, he would not have gotten my vote.
