Blame game or great job people? or Wow I Feel So Different Today!Submitted by Smudge Pot on Wed, 11/07/2012 - 14:28
Great posts and comments today! I trust the GJ vs. RP supporter rift is utterly irrelevant now.
Sure would be nice if we had or will ever have some clue as to how many RP write ins we garnered. And I'm sure the 1.1 million votes for GJ won't be reported on the MSM either. The numbers on popular vote are rather compelling given as GJ votes
Obama counted 59,725,608 votes, Romney counts 57,098,650. GJ comes in with 1,139,562. Of course it's wrong to assume that GJ votes were stolen from Romney but let's also consider our write-ins. Our write ins are muck more LIKELY to be stolen from Romney. Given these two factors, I think we can safely take credit for Romney losing the popular vote.
Because even if the nation at large doesn't know or care, TPTB who have better numbers than any of us (they build the vote flipping mechanisms) notice. That we're not growing exponentially, this is more of a quantum leap thing. Come on, in 2008 we managed about 42,000 write in votes for Ron Paul.
AND THAT WAS IT. 42,0000. Yeah we got some good candidates in but 42,000 votes was what we got. Now we're counting millions in the "liberty vote" category. This nicely continues our primary trend of DOUBLING OR QUADRUPLING OUR 08 RESULTS. Yes, you can get somebody, a lot of somebodies out there are...changing their diapers on an hourly basis.
See this is going exactly to plan as I see it. The RP thing was about reforming (or destroying) the GOP from the inside out. That was the objective. Not to make Obama lose, to make NEOCONS LOSE. We get them out, we put ourselves in. Confidence in the old-guard, country-club, go along to get along GOP has to die first. We're not in the business of making better liberals, we're in the business of making real conservatives. So congrats to all of us.
Paradoxically the GOP deserves some credit for having got the tight numbers they got. We still have a long way to go. The GOP is still a force, they are still fully enfranchised, they will retrench and attack us with everything they got. In other words,
Hope you enjoyed yesterday's war and welcome to today's war. We had it painted while you were asleep. Big improvement eh?
