I wept tonight...

I wept tonight, not because Romney lost, but because Obama won. I wept for my country. I wept for the Constitution. I wept for our freedoms. I wept for our liberty. I wept for my children who may never know the country I grew up in.

I wept for those who voted for Obama; those who have no concept of what freedom is; those who have never read the Constitution; those who feel entitled; those who vote the color of their skin and not the content of their character; those who's souls are lost.

I wept tonight. I don't know my country anymore. I feel like a stranger in a foreign land. I don't know if I will ever feel like this country is the home I once knew.

I too was crying...

...because I was laughing so hard at that FRAUD Willard, who cheated, lied, and flip-flopped his way to the most embarrassing electoral performance in recent memory.

For all the fraud he committed and all the propaganda about his electability, Willard's campaign will go down as the most poorly-run failure of a presidential campaign in American political history. Not only will he NEVER be President, none of his fellow neocons will either.

Does it suck that we're stuck with Obama for 4 more years? Sure... but it doesn't suck as bad as the alternative, which would have been the American public NOT soundly and thoroughly rejecting neocons and their politics of racism, bigotry, and fearmongering. Now real conservatives can take our party back, and it will be a LOT easier. I've already had several die-hard neocon friends tell me today that I was right all along and that we need more people like Ron Paul.

I don't play, I commission the league.

GOP=.Planned to lose....a new name MITT the weaker,,the way OUT

This is what Ralph Nader meant when he was talking about unsafe at any speed and planned obsolescence. That is the GOP fossil party. There was no energy behind McCain or Romney but millions voted for them. Why? because they did not take the time to study and check out if it was really true that their dear leaders always lie them into war and had covert wars all over the globe and continue to do so. They vote as reactionaries against Obama, the man who will destroy America. So it is all the time. They are whipped into a frenzy against the Blue team. That is the media's job: create a good fight. It is beyond me that with all the web information available that 105 million or so Americans can fall for all this and while we have a police state in our midst. All based on phantoms!! Hysteria over drugs, terror and people with gardens in their front lawn, kids selling lemonade unlicensed etc! This all while the President expanded the drug, wars in Africa and the mideast,moving into asia, the drone wars and all wars except when he was forced to withdraw. There is some kind of mass hypnosis for this to happen! With closed eyes they believe like they are in a bad relationship!! In denial most using the vote defensively. The lesser of two clowns. Mitt was used to be the weaker. Yes Mitt the Weaker! This so Obama can look good man even the arbiter of peace! What a drama... yes lol
We should take a lot of solace in the fact that people are waking up. When things get worse many more will come to our side. There are those even who see finally that there are solutions to America's problems outside of voting. These I see to include the Free State Project, and the moves to make Marijuana legal. I believe there should be more focus on the building actual intentional communities (see ic.org/ and livinginthfuture.org/ and c4ss.org/content/9805 for Communal Property a Libertarian Analysis), building green libertarianism ideologically, and open source technologies. There is some progress. Stephanie Murphy's (rendition of the) audiobook: Markets, not Capitalism is a great triumph. Both the text and the audiobook can be accessed by going c4ss.org/markets-not-capitalism-audiobook.
These are but a few of many resources one can find when searching the web on building a liberty society with real answers.
Further we must work to end the senseless in fighting. The scam left/right split that Rothbard hated can now end.

shisaracyndi

Exactly, I agree with you

One group through history uses the same method of operation over and over again. They cry out as if they have been lied to and cheated, as if they are the victim. This tactic confuses the victim as well as any bystanders.

So by financing 2 puppets rummy and obmomba, DNC and GOP they insure at a critical time (2013 renewal of the illegal Fed bank charter) they cancel out any ligitmate candidate from any direction.

Then the cope de grass they blame the only ligitmite candidate that the people actually wanted (who would have ended the fed) and in the end they blame the RP supporters for destroying the GOP.

Very evil vile uncivilized people. Looks like the same genocide plan they used upon the American Indians and the poor people of Germany and europe.

I laughed last night, not because Obama won. Romney lost!

Ha Ha.

And this FAKE conservative spent like 1/4 of his zillion dollar fortune trying to buy and bully his way to the presidency.

How could Obama possibly be any worse. Nothing would be better under Romney, it would only be the same or even worse.

Better the devil you know than the demon you don't know.

.

Willard would have been ten times worse.

He would have changed the rules to make himself king, just like he changed the RNC rules to make himself the nominee.

Ding Dong The Witch is Dead

You should be jumping for joy. The GOP brand has been destroyed!

Ummmm

Do you have any idea how left this country has become??

People were given two bad

People were given two bad choices in a rigged election, don't take it personallly

Ventura 2012

nah...

just two versions of the same choice...

I understand

I understand why you are sad. But the reality is you should cry if Romney won too. The way I see it, this is actually the best possible outcome in our current reality. Because Obama won, we now have the chance in 2016 to get a real liberty candidate in office! I know some around the DP are not fans of Rand Paul, but forget them. They do not live in reality.

Rand Paul 2016!

"Be a listener only, keep within yourself, and endeavor to establish with yourself the habit of silence, especially on politics." -Thomas Jefferson

With how far left this country has become

we would be lucky to get Rand Paul on the ballot.

@ ecorob...Obama was raised

By a white mother, in a white and "other" home, with white grandparents, and went to white ivy league private schools. PLEASE own him.

How about you BOTH

stop trying to turn it into a race issue?

Whites don't need to "own" Obama, and neither do Blacks. Obama owns himself (even if he is bought off... ;0 ).

ay yi yi

A signature used to be here!

And so it begans

It wasnt so much that Obama won against a weak GOP candidate...it was the socialist senators that also won handily. The exit polls are extremely disturbing. This country has taken a hard turn to the left.

"We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions" -Barack Obama, Acceptance Speech last night.

The communist got his way. God help us.

Those of you that think last night was good for liberty are, sorry to say, delusional. If Romney is a "far right Randian" for wanting to cut 5% of spending.....then what are libertarians? Last night was the worst election outcome I could think of.

The exit polls say it all. This country has swung hard left, certainly not in the direction favorable to a libertarian-conservative.

We would be very lucky to get Rand in 2016. I am very concerned about our country after last night, very concerned.

Yes, like Elizabeth Warren

The so-called native American Indian,(which said group should be very upset to have their heritage hijacked by this white woman to exploit a loophole for personal gain) who, like Obama, believes we "didn't build that" but that all economical prosperity and technological innovation springs from the firm but loving hand of the statist government that watches over us. A bunch of Marxist meddlers seeking to "get it right this time" on creating the perfect state--with special perks for them, of course.

Conscience does not exist if not exercised

"No matter how cynical you get, it's impossible to keep up!
---Lily Tomlin

Oh, you mean "lieawatha"!

She gets called out for her "native" nonsense all the time, but it never seems to stick for some reason.

Oddly enough, a lot of Whites and Blacks can get away with calling themselves 'natives'. Then again, I know of a lot of 'light-skinned' Latinos who try passing themselves off as White so...meh.

ecorob's picture

oBOMBya is the black jfk...

a statist's dream who has the support of the people while, yet, bowing to the elite around the globe

you can't beat this man without a battle along idealogical lines

these two statists were the same hence, NO choice EXCEPT race

put a RON PAUL in there and race goes out the window because, now, its about values

it wasn't about values last night, it was about race (because romnie had NO values any different) what else could it have been about?

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...

Is that seriously real?

Scary, if so.

Very, Very Scary

I thought that I would sleep well last night

I though that I would sleep well last night, but I did not. This nation will not be one that I knew.

2016 we may have a shot again. Had romney won, no doubt the sheep would put another democrat in after him, potentially setting us back until AT LEAST 2020 or beyond. The endless cycle of establishment R, D, R, D must stop.

But I still worry about the next 4 years. obama has stated to Putin that he will have greater freedom this election. It will be up to each and all to fight every step of the way and to help educate others. Utilize power of print, blogs, etc. while we still have it.

It is sorely needed. Thank you.

Keep a stiff upper lip

Its not been your country for hundreds of years now.
Your children will be brought up as you see fit.

sovereign

thank you . . .

for this reminder. While I (white and born to well-educated parents) slept warmly in my bed in post WWII America . . . there were native American children starving in the same region; I didn't know them. There were Japanese American children trying to get their lives back after their families lost everything; there were Japanese children without parents--
There were children dying in the Ukraine--

I have idealized post WWII America, to my shame.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Here's a hanky, dry your eyes.

It is all coming down, this house of cards. Nobody really won or lost anything, and the really important thing is that the message of liberty did not die. You are here.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Man up we should

glad that the scumbag Romney didn`t win as that would have been worse for liberty! Look we have a lot to do this is no time to give up it is time to get your kids involved and train them with a mindset toward LIBERTY. There are some very important things going on everywhere that are going to effect you and your family more then which one of these statist POS won this election! Look around your local community I can assure you that there is an Agenda 21/sustainable/smart growth plan tryng to or already in place this United Nations baxked stuff is bad and something that needs to be stopped at ALL COSTS. God bless you all and stay engaged,and for a little fun go to your local GOP meeting and tell them I told you so!

O is NOT my president!

He NEVER was my president, nor will he EVER be my president!

Ron Paul IS my president!

Then you wept for 99% of the voters.

Then you wept for 99% of the voters. Those who voted for Romney are just as clueless and just as responsible for the leviathan state that the US has become. From the standpoint of our movement's principles, they are all virtually indistinguishable.
