Last Night I Cried

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 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" 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 all lost, as I think it is?

Rush spent much of his show yesterday deconstructing these polls. They are using 2008 turnout stats to weight this year's polls. If they used 2010 turnout, the polls would be more accurate. But they are not going to do that. Go to Rush's website and read the transcripts. Also, the Media Research Center has a good take down that should at least cheer you up a bit.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that’s where I stopped reading.

Dont have time for people that watch left-wing news outlets and then come to FR to emote and look for therapy.

If you are for real, get a grip and act like an actual conservative.


I’ll try to be nice. No, I won’t. You are a jerk. You never bump a prayer thread? You never offer a word of compassion or concern to a FReeper? I’d like to think you are operating in a tough love style of “help” here.

But I doubt it.

Thank you for that.

Everytime I turn on Glenn Beck or Rush and hear them hold forth on the current state of things, my tendency to give in to despair is very great.

God is bigger than this. That is where we all must turn. ‘Pod.

You might want to check early voting statistics that LS, LDSentinal, many others and I have been posting to see what’s going on underneath the surface. Also check today’s rasmussen too - I see you last commented on a Ras poll from 9/20 - today’s numbers might cheer you up.

If the electoral process was open, honest, fair and trustworthy - there is no way in hell Obama wins.

But we no longer have such a thing. CookCounty has gone national and never in all history has a Marxist regime EVER stepped down from power willingly.

Put your faith in what truly counts. Seek God now while He may be found.

A lukewarm people may be required to endure a chastisement from Dad. And of course, it is our own consequences we will reap. None of what you see in this country today would have happened if this people had been stalwart in the exercise and defense of our Christian faith and principles, instead of buying lies of a constructed Jesus to fit their comfort zones and sitting on their hands when the culture was being assaulted by secular hedonists.

Repentance and reconciliation is always available to us - if we would only do II Chronicles 7:14

This is exactly what Obama and his minions in the MSM want you to feel, hopeless. As others have posted back to you in this thread, this is calculated psyops warfare by both the Obama administration and the MSM to discourage us. They are pulling out all the stops in order to keep "Dear Leader" in power. Chin up, we will show Obama the door on 11/6/2012!

I know exactly how you feel. Here's my advice. One, stop watching, reading, listening to the news. Stop. Make a donation to Romney — even if you can afford to give only $20. Pray every day and every night for a Romney win. Finally, go to the polls early on Election Day and vote for Romney/Ryan.

You just have to do the best YOU can to help Romney win (see above); beyond that, we have to trust that God hears our prayers. If Obama should win — God forbid — the Lord will be counting on us to be stalwart and to trust in Him as events unfold. This world is not our final destination. I love the USA and I will fight for her, but I am keeping my eyes on eternity.

Stay hopeful about the election and put your faith in God.

If you wish to feel better, look at the same polls corrected for reality.

Say Sandy, can I ask you a question? You got a moment?
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?


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.

LOL! One of my favorite movies of all time..thanks for giving me a laugh..I needed one! I am as right as one can be. I am on my local Republican Central Committee, and do what I can to help elect our candidates. After awhile, it’s so tough to ignore the media..and I don’t even watch any left-wing channels!

You sound like a disrupter trying to depress the vote on the right.

I didn't get that from her post. In fact, I have heard this type of sentiment from several that are not as politically engaged as most FReepers. For those that are part time political followers, and only catch the nightly news and newspaper headlines, I understand their dispair.

I watched Krissy last night on MSNBC for a segment. His added rhetoric on every single subject detail was off the reservation. The segment I watched was about voter ID laws in 17 states of 41 states that tried to pass ID laws (Racism was the soup of the day throught correspondent dialogue). I paused/rewound it and called my wife in to dissect the BS and point to the malfeasance and ignorance of his sory and target audience. My wife is pretty smart. Even she asked, "How could he say that on national TV? That doesn't even make sense."

The point is, we (FReepers) take our knowledge for granted. Others have to be spoonfed some simple logic that contradicts or highlights the nature of the MSM liberal agenda.

The trajectory's in our direction.

First, there was the Tea Party.

Then, there were the November 2010 elections. The dress rehearsal, so to speak.

Next, The Great Heave-Ho.

Don't get sad, get even.

“I’ll try to be nice. No, I won’t. You are a jerk.”

In a war like this, you’re damn right I’m a jerk. When you sit and watch BS on networks you know are full of BS and fall for it, I DONT have sympathy for you, PERIOD.

You want to cry? Cry in a private message. Too many people here are already too darn wobbly to have a textual breakdown show up, it causes other nervous-Nellies to lose focus, and just gives spies from the other side encouragement to ramp up the BS further.

So sorry if it seems “mean”.

Sandy, I've been on earth over 75 years and have followed politics as a voter for the last 54 years. In a predominantly Democrat state I registered as a Republican. The register of voters gave me a very disapproving glare.

I was sad when Goldwater lost and very disappointed with Nixon's indiscretions. However at the present, I think the greater disaster will be Obama’s reelection!! It is not looking good — Republican and independent turn out seems our only hope. Some of us promote and pass the word as much as possible — I'm looking for ways to do more!!

Express your concerns and plead for your family and friends’ help in electing Romney!! He is a gentleman and competent by several orders of magnitude relative to Obama!! God bless!

The thing about self described rugged individualists is that they have an annoying habit of folding at early signs of adversity.

Keep the faith.
