Here's the lesson from the election, folks
National Catholic Register ^ | 11/7/12 | Matthew Warner

If you're discouraged or think the world is upside down, I have something for you. Guess what, regardless of who won the election, today we still have millions of babies being aborted every year. We still have 50% of marriages ending in divorce. We still have a supposedly Christian culture that has separated sex from marriage from procreation. We still have many Americans who are more likely to vote based upon peer pressure, or how nice somebody is, or their own self-interest, or by what the media told them, or by what's socially easy than they are to vote based on their own moral or religious convictions (or any economic sense). We still have lonely and suffering people in our communities who need to be loved.

And Catholics voted in large numbers for more abortion, gay marriage and moral decline.

This says it all;

“And if you’re waiting for a politician to fix that, you’re wasting your time. Sadly, most politicians are not leaders. And that’s because politics has become less about leadership than it is about marketing.”

So we buckle down and fight harder. Infiltrate the media, the schools, everywhere they’ve taken to destroy our culture. Elect the right people to office and make sure they stay on the right track, so the government doesn’t interfere with rebuilding the culture. But most of all, take your children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews and expose them to higher-quality arts and other expressions of higher culture.

There is nothing in this incredibly trite article that will make any difference. Countries have life-cycles. Ours is dying. The restoration of a society that is committing suicide is unheard-of in all of history. The only way a healthy society comes into being is on the ashes of one that has collapsed into war and barbarism. Praying a little more, shutting off the TV, and listening to more classical music will not change the course of our society. Only a period of war and barbarism that utterly smashes the baby-killing regime known as the U.S. Government will result in the emergence of a healthy society on this continent.

The lesson from the election?
Massive voter fraud, just as we knew there would be- and we did/will do nothing about it?

From the website:

Barack Obama voter fraud 2012

From Lynn Victory on Facebook:

“Thanks for what you are doing. My son is friends with a guy in the Romney campaign who has actually been on since 2008. He is not high up, but said that the O campaign bought high tech equipment to target county by county where the votes were needed in battle-ground states, so that they could “bus in the needed votes”. The guy would not say fraud, but that is fraud.”

“But…these Obama boys…they took it to a whole other level. Votes, donations…deals…it’s a lot more Putin than it is Clinton. Pay to play…Big Labor…this country never seen it at this level.”

Video: Diebold Whistleblower Speaks Out on Voter Fraud



BREAKING: St. Lucie County, Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County

Between St. Lucie and Broward Counties, we have a pretty good idea what happened in Florida. Normal voting is what, 50% turnout? It doesn’t take many counties like this to affect an entire state by multiple percentage points.

All of these numbers between 99% (Pennsylvania) and 141.1% (Florida) turnout in dozens of counties in swing states makes me think Team Obama was panicking a lot just before the election, with Mitt up by 7% in certain early voting polls.
They overcompensated so much the fraud is impossible to hide. I think they know it, which may be one reason Axelrod is stepping down. (Sound familiar Petraeus and Benghazi?)

As I told someone earlier today, this is who Obama is. This is who Chicago (the machine) is.
Do we really want this to be who America is?
Is this how we will define our elections from 2008 on? As Mitt says, “America can do better.”
We must do better. We can’t let the message be out there that America will let this fraud go.

Want to do something about all of this? Tiffany Banks and Darin Southam forwarded me a list of people you can contact who are in the November 9, 2012 3:12 PM comment below.

Did you know voters can request a recount in certain states? (Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin!) Take a look at the comment by @RightonMainSt dated November 9, 2012 11:45 PM below for instructions! Mitt will have to ask in Colorado himself. (Yes, you Mitt!)

It has also been suggested that we ask Republican Secretaries of State NOT to certify the election until all questions about voter fraud are abated.
Some people think this may provoke a crisis, but it can’t be worse than the one we are looking at for the next four years and the impact on generations to come!
America NEEDS Mitt, and Mitt won fair and square. This was not a ballot stuffing competition but an election. Let’s make sure it’s counted that way!

Thank you all. Over 7,500 people have visited this page in the first 24 hours and I hope millions will see it eventually. Please pass it on! We can do this! (Yes we can!)

The Catholic church is in the middle of things in this case, if not the cause. But it can act to be part of the solution.

To start with, the church must realize that if a hundred people call themselves Catholic, but only 50 of them are truly Catholic, the church cannot claim a hundred. The other 50 might someday seek redemption, but until they do, they are not an asset to the church, but dead weight.

There is no pride in numbers if half the number are forfeit.

For this reason, the church must divine some means to let those who are not Catholic, know that they are not Catholic, and that they should go their separate way from the church, that they neither call themselves Catholic, think of themselves as Catholics, nor burden the church and the faithful with their presence.

At the same time, the church must reclaim its sacraments as being part of its faith, not a function of government.

Imagine if the government decreed that Baptism was not Baptism unless it was done under government auspices? That children had to have a government issued certificate of Baptism, or the government would not recognize them as having been Baptized?

It sounds ludicrous, but for government to authorize marriage is just as ludicrous. So how does the church (and other religions) take back marriage? They do so by doing so.

The Catholic church could join with other orthodox churches and those churches willing to abide by mutual rules, to only accept marriages that are sacramental in character.

And these rules would be strict: that none of the churches in the agreement would recognize marriages performed outside of the agreement. The state would still recognize them, and the people involved might say they were married, but in the eyes of the churches involved, they would not be married, nor would they be said to be married, nor called husband and wife, Mr. and Mrs.

Likewise the churches would lay claim to divorce, that if allowed in that faith, it was a religious function and not a creature of the state, as it was a conclusion to a religious sacrament, not a civil law dispute.

Thus if the state wanted to say that a man and a goat could be married, that is for the state to say; but that does not make them so in the eyes of all of these churches. That this joining is not recognized nor respected, and the people involved are in no way righteous or respectable.

We can't 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....

if boycotting elections were a virtue, the 3 stooges would be called venerable.

What this author lacks? An awareness that 10000 state legislators were elected on TUES. And these are the races that Catholics should be focused on. There was no reason to boycott them and no Mormon issue and no RINO issue. Etc. The obsession with the Prezidenshall soap opera is destructive to the right.

No need to boycott the elections just the states that went Obama.
