What the Election Has Demonstrated to Me

with 2 comments

Well, we have come to the end of another election.  And I remember four years ago when  I wrote a more conciliatory response when Obama won.  This time, my tone is a little less gracious.

So what did we all see in this election?  Here’s what I’ve been able to see:

1) 60 million Americans do not care about the federal debt or having a federal budget. Sure, they mention it when it’s convenient or makes for good watercooler discussion, but at the end of the day, they could care less that the United States has $16 trillion of debt and over $65 trillion in unfunded liabilities. Instead, they care about all the government freebees that they can manage to wrest away and are not about to bite the hand that feeds them.

In short, Romney was absolutely right about the entire 47% thing.

2) 60 million Americans do not care about the laws of this country. They don’t care about the fact that 12 million people are in this country illegally and getting in-state tuition, sucking off the government for benefits, and working illegally, while not paying taxes. No, they are only interested in letting gays marry, smoking cannabis, and destroying hundreds of thousands babies through the horror of abortion and justifying it as so-called “reproductive rights”, while making the rest of us pay for it.

3) 60 million Americans have basically told us that the government is their savior rather than trusting in God and doing it themselves. They balk at the idea of American exceptionalism, like dissing one’s own high school football team during homecoming.

4) The Democrat and Republican establishments are basically useless and so impotent that a crate of Cialis couldn’t fix their problem. They are a bunch of out-of-touch beltway bozos who, ironically, continue to win even when the rest of us lose. In fact, I am seriously considering registering as an Independent. Political parties are basically useless.

5) The Main Stream Media is basically a threat to this country. They are nothing more now than sounding boards for the establishments. They failed miserably to report on the entire Benghazi situation, which to me, is darn near an impeachable offense for lying outright to the American people and not preventing the death of our diplomats. They have greatly ignored the plights of those affected by Hurricane Sandy and even that tool Chris Mattews said is was glad that we had that storm. He apologized for it later, but let’s face it, he’s basically a moron with bad hair and generally, now, irrelevant (as if he was really that important to me anyway)

So where does this election leave us?

Basically in the same mess that we were in before with little gained and little really lost. We had hoped that 2012 would be the year we shatter through the ceiling, but I guess we have to spend four more years educating the clueless neonates who mindlessly suck on the government’s teat, the socialists who seem bent on turning us into the same European failing model that is causing the EU to tank, and the liberals, potheads and homosexuals who want to basically attempt to redefine morality into something that resembles Sodom and Gomorrah.

“They had a choice, all of them. They could have followed in the footsteps of good men like my father or President Truman. Decent men who believed in a day’s work for a day’s pay. Instead they followed the droppings of lechers and communists and didn’t realize that the trail led over a precipice until it was too late. Don’t tell me they didn’t have a choice. Now the whole world stands on the brink, staring down into bloody Hell, all those liberals and intellectuals and smooth-talkers… and all of a sudden nobody can think of anything to say.”  – – from Rorshach’s Journal

Still, there is half of the country who realize that there is still much to fight for – that America can be saved from the perverts and heathen, from the non-producing takers, from those who would re-write the principles of our founding so they can feed their lusts and make everyone else, the producers and the unborn, pay for their sickness. Romney just didn’t connect with the people very well and didn’t convince that remaining 2% that Obama wasn’t the right choice. Conventionally, it is very difficult to unseat an incumbent, so really, there’s no real surprise here, despite the predictions of Karl Rove and Dick Morris.

I refuse to accept that America is beyond saving. I intend to keep on fighting and, when we reach Rorshach’s precipice, we’ll have hope, because it doesn’t come from the Government, it comes from those of us who believe in individual liberty. And we’ll watch as the liberals bury themselves, because in the end, sin is self defeating.

A Thing More Important

with one comment

As I sit here, like thousands of people tonight, waiting for the election results to come in, I am recollecting a situation that happened just three hours from this writing.

So I have a student of mine, who shall remain nameless, who needed some help with her mail-in ballot. She pulled it out and she was completely perplexed with the amount of data on the paper, as well as the feeling of overwhelming pressure to get a ballot turned it, because “if she doesn’t vote, she could never complain”. So we pull her ballot out and start going though it.

“Okay, select your choice for President.”, I said. And so she did.

Barack Obama

I cringed quietly, knowing that tonight is going to be a close race and every vote counts. But as we went through each question, with her responses almost opposite to what mine were when I filled out the same thing this morning, I started to feel better about what I was doing, because she felt more and more reassured that she was at least having the opportunity to participate in the political process.

So, afterwards, we drove downtown where she was able to get to the city administration building to drop off her ballot. And as I dropped her off and drove away, I felt pretty good about what I was able to do for another American – and the immense amount of trust she placed on me to help her, even after she learned what my political leanings were.

“I had no idea…”, she said. I just smiled.

Tonight isn’t about Romney or Obama or anyone else. And who ever wins tonight, we need to remember that voting, regardless of where we go, what issues are on the table, or what person is going for what office, tonight is about being American and showing the world how freedom is done.
