Posted on 09/27/2012 8:32:28 AM PDT by SandyLynn
Last night, I gave in and cried. As the Mom of 3 kids, I feel hopeless. The polls show that Obama is winning, whether we try to deny it or not. I keep asking myself "Who are these so-called Americans who will re-elect this disaster we've had in office for almost 4 years?" I am scared. Scared for the lives my children will have to live, thanks to the resident currently occupying the White House. No, I will never call him my president..in my opinion, you have to EARN that title. And the man who currently occupies the White House is much more concerned about being popular with the "in" crowd..you know, the Hollywood Liberals. Who cares that gas prices have tripled since he took office? That food prices have skyrocketed? That most of us who work for a living are struggling from paycheck to paycheck while the lazy people live off of our hard work? Hopeless. I keep going back to that word..because I feel as though we have nowhere to go. And shock. Because I cannot believe we have so many stupid Americans in our country! Don't get me wrong. I will vote, and cast my vote for Romney. But really, is it enough? I don't think so. Fellow FReepers..is all lost, as I think it is?
Which team do you play for? Because I was just wonderin ... You live in the most important state in the most important election ... and you're crying?
Are you crying? THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL.
Now, I want you to go back to right field, and when it's your turn to vote, vote so hard you almost break the machine.
Think how conservatives must have felt when FDR was elected a third and a fourth time. Would they have believed that someday Reagan would be president?
Take the long view. The bad guys win some battles. The good guys ultimately win the war. God said so.
Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, neverin nothing, great or small, large or pettynever give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
We stood all alone a year ago, and to many countries it seemed that our account was closed, we were finished. All this tradition of ours, our songs, our School history, this part of the history of this country, were gone and finished and liquidated.
Very different is the mood today. Britain, other nations thought, had drawn a sponge across her slate. But instead our country stood in the gap. There was no flinching and no thought of giving in; and by what seemed almost a miracle to those outside these Islands, though we ourselves never doubted it, we now find ourselves in a position where I say that we can be sure that we have only to persevere to conquer.
Do not let us speak of darker days: let us speak rather of sterner days. These are not dark days; these are great daysthe greatest days our country has ever lived; and we must all thank God that we have been allowed, each of us according to our stations, to play a part in making these days memorable in the history of our race.
Winston Churchill, 1941
AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN!
That’s correct. Anytime you put your trust or faith in man or man run things (America, government, the GOP, the media, etc.) you are going to get let down. Put your trust in God and set your sights on eternal things and all these other things going on are put into perspective.
Stop focusing on our Country and the hopeless political and financial future we face. Stop focusing on which loser (Romney or Obama) will win.
Just stop it.
Instead you and your family must focus on the greater hope that God has promised for His children. You can’t change the whole world, as its going to hell. But you can change your focus, your direction, your priorities and values.
And that starts with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Once you have that, all this other stuff is not worth crying about.

The odds that Romney will lose are very, very low. The MSM is leading you by the nose like a sucker. If we lose it will be because people like you agreed to lose. Grow a spine. Can you say president Romney?
Somebody on Fox and Friends this morning explained that the polls are skewed based on voter turnout in the last presidential election. Obama’s old news to his base.
This poll news is getting much heavier rotation than it would because it is trying to discourage anti-Obama voters from showing up. If you feel like you say you do, it might be working.
Yeah, what he said...Your hope cannot be in institutions - even good ones - that rely on man. Proverbs 3:5-6
This was posted by me in another thread about polls:
Well, Hamilton, the polls have been driving me crazy.
They have literally been making me hate my country and the people in it.
I think to myself, why is this happening? What is the cause?
Does the media report news, does the media shape opinion, or is it engaged in outright mind control operations?
If it is engaged in opinion shaping and mind control, how does it do that?
It does it by a number of methods, such as lying, non-reporting of things that should be reported, the strategic lifting of an eyebrow or other physical gestures, and of course by the non stop reporting of polls.
What do the polls do? Well, if you are not an Obama supporter, they tell you that you are in the minority. They tell you a majority of Americans do not think as you do, and they do not agree with you.
Humans are social animals. No one wants to be in a minority. No one wants to be in the out crowd, people want to be in the in crowd. Certainly there are some people who arent like this, but most people are weaker willed in this regard, and they can easily be pushed into going along with the crowd.
This is psycholigical warfare being
The left hates good/conservatives/christians/constitutionalists more than they love their country.. they are shallow thinkers and are not able to go any deeper than their hatred. Remember Carter’s polls showed him ahead of Reagan and the media said Reagan could not win. He won in a landslide. Wisconsin voters proved the polls to be wrong also.
Don’t give up... there are still more of us than there are of them.
Well I try to use common sense; His star has faded, of that there is no doubt, and all those who voted for him last time are going to turn out less. Whether it will be much less or a little less, who knows. But I cannot possibly fathom there being the same amount of people who will vote for him as last time.
While on the other hand, he’s been such an incredible F up that I would imagine MORE people than usual are going to turn up just to vote him out. If that is not the case, then this country is already screwed whether he is voted in or not because it tells me there are more socialists, commies, anarchists, radical muslims, and general wackos than there are sane people.
Please, if you are not a Christian, give yourself to Jesus. He will fill you with Himself, who is our living hope. (1 Peter 1:3) By turning from your sins, say a prayer, asking Jesus to forgive you, and asking Him to save you and come into your life. He has promised to be with those who have no hope. Your joy will transcend all these things that are happening on earth. Give your attention all to Jesus and obey Him in what He would want you to do.
If you have questions, I will try to answer them.
It is not uncommon to have days where we feel down or feel despair. But when that happens to me, I turn to my spouse, a friend or to my pastor. Sometimes I just tune into my own thoughts and ‘shake’ myself out of the funk.I try to push past the hopeless thoughts and remind myself to be thankful for what I DO have. Take care of what I CAN control.
I have no idea what is going to happen on Nov 7. But to me, it seems self-defeating to let the other guys think they have the upper hand. Whatever happen on Nov 7...I will still be standing up for what I believe in and work to create a better future for my family.
I hope you feel less despair soon....for your sake and for your family’s sake.
Please don’t say despair is a sin. It’s a feeling. It’s what we do with the feeling that counts.
You are right to trust in God. The advice I would give to the Lady who cried last night is to pray for the best and prepare her life for the worst.
The hole is too deep and we are too close to the cliff.
So it will be crying time for a long while. It's too late for "which politician" to make a difference.
