What has happened to America?
Defrauded. Vote fraud and campaign finance fraud and media fraud and Obama the fraud.
Sorry, any close election in Missouri will be stolen by the crooks in StLouis.
I warned people early on about Indiana, we lost here in 2006. Once again they used the jobs going overseas argument.
Also, the leftist education of the youth is coming home to roost. Those kids are now voting age and are moving back into Indiana.
I imagine if you add in some vote fraud in urban areas here too, you have a cocktail perfectly mixed for a loss.
Did we all really sit here and think that the indoctrination our kids have gotten at school was never going to play a part in this?
Do you have a tent city down there for some of us so we can join in the succession? LOL
Let’s see how proud they are when O-B implements the DRAFT necessary to maintain troop levels when all those currently on active duty decline to re-enlist. They may reap very quickly what they sowed. O-B’s only hope is the economy is so bad, they can’t afford to get out.
Hey, I’ll start one....
Actually, according to their SOS’s web site, McCain has 49.8% and Obama has 49.2%. Talk about close. Who knows what it will be in the end because they have to count provisional and absentee ballots now.
Does anyone else think the large exodus from the coasts has influenced the electoral college?
I’ve seen about a million Californian license plates out here in the past years. That’s got to leave a mark. I’m not Californian-bashing, since I moved out here from CA 6 years ago, too. My family followed me.
Still, there are a lot of people who move from a coastal blue state because conditions there have become intolerable. Then they come to a red state and start electing people who will do the same messed up stuff to their new state.
I wouldn’t go that far. We will be in the woodshed for awhile, but it only took the Dems six years to take back everything.
Back in 2002, we thought the Dems wouldn’t be back in power for ages to come.
Politics changes a lot, and despite demographic changes, most voters are fickle.
We will be back.
You’re absolutely right.
Mitch Daniels (incumbent Gov) ran monstrously ahead of McCain here in Indiana. And while somewhat of a RINO, the first thing he did after getting elected in 04 was to de-certify all the unions representing state employees.
So they unions were really pushing to get him out.
I live in the Jefferson city area and BOY are you are telling the truth!
Or in some other cases, Reps down ticket outperformed McCain substantially. For example, in 2004 Bush easily won Indiana by 21 points. In 2008 Mitch Daniel won reelection with 58% of the vote or 1,542,371 votes. McCain won 1,329,370 votes or over 200,000 less. As a result, Obama won the state.
I'm glad that you enjoyed my turn of phrase. Americans have made their choice, and the weight of Obama's win seems large enough to preclude it having been caused solely by the voter fraud (which ultimately is probably just as well). My state has decided that doctor assisted suicide is "dignified". Once we have government run medical it won't be long before, in order to control skyrocketing costs, that the government will begin to say they will not cover some expensive procedure but they will cover the cost of suicide. Incrementally the liberals are removing any respect for the value of human life. Couple that with the shift away from private property ownership and we're proving Khrushchev prophetic.
On August 24, 1963, Khrushchev himself remarked in his speech in Yugoslavia, "I once said, 'We will bury you,' and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you,"a reference to the Marxist saying, "The proletariat is the undertaker of capitalism"; a popular articulation of the materialist conception of history as the inevitable progression of class struggle towards communism.
Yeah if you prefer two Ginsburgs to Roberts and Alito on the bench for the next 3 decades.
Phones and TVs? Not good enough. I want a new car. So, when can I pick up my new taxpayer-funded Mercedes, Barack?
I also believe this test that Joe Biden so aptly warned us of will come within days (or even before) his innauguration.
I fully expect a terrorist attack the day after B.O. is sworn in.
With all the college educated people--few have been taught the difference between capitalism, socialism, communism and the growth of each and history of all. This ignorance allows the American people to be sold a bill of goods that is ripe with tyranny and poison. It is time to move forward in a positive and effective fashion to fight this. We can do it--knowledge is power and power is not made clear unless fulfilled in action (including active inaction). It is time to act though. Thank you for your post and thoughtful, intelligent, and at time poetic contribution. :-)
Yep. I turned on the tv this morning and saw footage of the crowd celebrating in Chicago. Blacks and a LOT of young, college-age kids. Kids that pay no taxes and few bills, mommy and daddy probably still take care of things for them. Ugh.
“to maintain troop levels “
What makes you think Obama is interested in maintaining troop levels?
It's been a pleasure touching on this topic with you. I hope out paths cross again. I read a post earlier today, although forget the author who wrote that conservatives can no longer abdicate the institutions of society that have become instrumental in undermining the nation. Institutions such as education, media and entertainment, for instance have been abused by liberals to produce a society ill equipped to analyze and respond to the lies and ploys that have lead us into socialism.
I’ve been reading all your comments, and you seem a little fishy to me. This was one of the least religious campaigns I can remember, plus most of the lost seats were moderates. The gay marriage votes passed even in Liberal California.
I’m not a bible thumper, but the evidence seems to show the opposite of what you are saying.
Dat - there are Republicans in this country that don’t espouse half of the far right agenda that is often cast on the board. As a long time registered member and as an American, I don’t have to agree with everyone on the board. To summarize, I am proud of my McCain-Palin vote. I do think that a lot of center-right Republicans did not vote this year because some of their concerns with Sarah. Still the economy factor would have prevented nearly any Republican from winning). Our party is in a state of shock right now and it’s the paranoia and the infighting that will only divide this party further.
I’m so damned glad I escaped the USA under the Clinton years.
Unless AP knows something about absentee or early voting (if they even have it in MO).....
Missouri has absentee voting only, no early voting.
Missouri did not fall to Obama. McCain by nearly 6,000 votes. Absentee ballots not yet counted that I know of.
Missouri, the bellwether, backed the loser. What happened?
That’s good news :) I know it won’t change anything, but it makes me feel better. I believe Sarah delivered Missouri.
(I really wonder just how honest this election was.) :-(
We showed up early (Oct 25th) at the Pettis (MO) county court house and voted absentee for McCain, because we were afraid we might be trapped out of town on November 4th. We weren’t , but we wanted to be sure....Our ballots were filled in by hand, placed in a sealed envelope, and given to the clerk-presumably, they were counted after the 11/04 votes were cast.
I thought we are on pace to win MO?
I posted this election night after AP called MO for Obama.
Mo won by McCain’t.
Unfortunately I live in Jackson County (Kansas City area) so I knew how my county was going to go.
Yesterday at work one woman was so happy Obama won and she had voted for him. I asked her why she voted for him and her answer was right out of the Kool-Aide Drinkers Handbook.
He’s so handsome (gag), he speaks well, he’s different, he has good ideas, we need change, McCain would be more of Bush. Pure vomit material.
Told her I’d check back with her in six months and see if she feels the same. Can’t afford to get fired so couldn’t tell her what I really felt.
I always thought it strange that counties in Mo go Johnson Co., Mo...Jackson Co, MO...Johnson Co, KS. I asked a Hi Po once if that caused confusion and he said that yes, they would sometimes have transmission overlap and not be sure just *WHICH* county was being referred to.
My mother voted absentee also because she is getting very frail. Was afraid she wouldn’t be able to go in person.
Didn’t discuss this election with much of my family because they’re almost all libs. They all loved Clinton.
How did a nice person like me end up in a family of libs? :-)
That was probably wise :-D.(it’s at least a little comfort to live in a town that voted overwhelmingly for McPalin, AND to have a family that’s overwhelmingly conservative. I don’t think anyone voted for the fraud, and if they did, they did so surreptitiously.
My father saw McCain on CSPAN in 2002 and wrote him a letter saying he would never vote for him.
My father also grew to dislike Bush before it was fashionable to dislike Bush, because he thought Bush as “kiss ass”.
I miss my father dearly.
it took me a couple days to recover from the BIG dissappointment I have in some of my fellow Americans who voted in a marxist.
