My Spine Has Stiffened
Big Hollywood, by David Bossie

Original Article

Posted By:Jakester2344, 11/10/2012 9:32:50 AM

The conservative movement took it pretty good on the chin earlier this week. President Obama and his liberal allies mobilized their vote and got it out very effectively in the key states. On Tuesday night, as I went to bed, I was extremely down and out. But on Wednesday, as the sun rose, my spine stiffened and it was a brand new day. Our conservative cause has taken hits again and again, and each time we come back stronger.

But what changes? We get Rino Bush, McCain and Romney. The person who energized the right for McCain was Palin and the TEA Party. The TEA Party was shut out of this election by Romney. The problem for the Republicans was turn out. The TEA Party and Ron Paul conservatives just weren´t there.

Thanks, OP. We need more optimism and less of the articles about how we must accept defeat and sell out our principles. Liberalism didn´t win, lies did.

David Bossie seems to be worried only about the ´conservative cause´ and the ´conservative movement´. Let me tell you something Mr. Bossie, we should be more concerned with the survival of our country under the dictator government we have . I´m talking about the government that Americans chose to renew for another four years. You say your spine ´stiffened´. The American people who chose to keep this loser for another term gave our country a ´stiff´ one last week and it wasn´t your spine!!

My observation, the dems vote party, they don´t care if their guy is the devil, they vote party. The republicans on the other hand, if they don´t like the guy they stay home. We might never win again.

Those of us who read this site can ´strenghten our spines´ all we want, but where does this get us if our weaker brethern just stay home and pout? Answer: nowhere and a lot poorer financially.
We need to find out what happened those 3 million and I´m pretty sure it wasn´t the Rapture. If they´re just dolts, we need to move along to find people who are, you know, helpful.

I keep being told by the media that we must ´change´ to attract more voters. Well, sorry. I can´t help what I believe and don´t plan to change. I believe abortion for convenience is murder. I cannot change my belief just to satisfy the left that wants to shut us up. Same sex marriage is wrong, period. For the gay lobby to try to force a change on traditional marriage between a man and woman is simply wrong. To deny those beliefs in order to ´appeal´ to more voters is immoral.

It´s also a fool´s errand. Being a version of Democrat Lite won´t work. We can never outspend the Dems and shouldn´t even try.

I´m all for stiffened spines and brand new days--to a point. But I don´t think the problem is the ´pouters´ among us, the problem is the Republican Party.

This election has shown us the GOP serves no earthly purpose. This election was handed to the right on a silver platter, and the party of buffoons we call Republicans lost it. Obama didn´t win. The GOP lost. Again.

I´m sure I´ll get nowhere calling for the tarring and feathering of most of the Grand Old Party. But it needs to be abandoned and replaced with a real conservative party.

In the meantime, the Democrats own this country, lock, stock and barrel.

When 99% of a community votes Obama, that is database voting, not human. We must repair our elections or we are no longer free.

I believe SEIU rigged all machines to reflect a vote for Obama, whether a human
showed up or not.In heavily red areas, they let us keep our votes... but in swing states, they were all pre-programmed.

And just in case there was a hiccup, good ole Palm Beach County pocketed 35,000 ballets to hand enter.

Even the UN watchers were shocked at how we can vote without ID.

It´s time to vote like Iraq... purple thumb prints on each ballet.

Reading article after article on election fraud and malfunctioning screens and doing further reading how the machines can show who you voted for on the screen but then record on the flash drive the opposite of what the screen had shown, makes me believe more and more there was massive voter fraud in 2012. Can anyone with a straight face tell others that internal polling of a campaign could be so far off? Why have wenot heard of voter fraud in the Blue Dem states or in the for certain Red Republican states------only in the swing states have reports come out. Makes one go Hmmmmmm!

Conservatives, or Republicans, or Tea Party members, pick your name. #5 is right on the money, plus they never give up.

Ever since the left began promoting their views - be it anti-tobacco, anti-Christianity, pro-gay legislation to same sex marriage, free this and free that, they never let up. And they always support their candidate. They would have reelected Anthony Weiner had he not dropped out.

But the big change needed for our side is to pick a candidate and stick with him. Ross Perot gave us 8 years of Clinton. Apparently our Tea Party buddies decided 4 more years of Obama would teach a lesson to the Republican/conservatives. You guys are really just like Obama - it´s your way or else. Thanks for the "or else" jerks. We have to suffer because you are not willing to go a step at a time. All or nothing and we got nothing.

The GOP primary process was particularly brutal this time around. I suspect many ABRs never finished licking their wounds. Sadly, if any of the other contenders had gotten the nomination the blow out would have been of landslide proportions - and Barry would have gotten his ´´mandate´´.

#5 is spot on. The R´s demand so much issue purity that they pout and stay at home if anything at all offends their tender sensibilities. #13 is dead right, also. Fraud on a massive level has been perpetrated. I´m glad to see that Allen West won´t take his quietly. And every Catholic that voted for a D should be told in unequivocal terms that they committed a mortal sin.

I am not a defeatist, but:

1) The first thing we need to do is stop with the liberal-created con-job that Romney lost because conservatives stayed home. I can´t believe there are people on here stupid enough to believe that.

2) I keep hearing about "key states" and the "swing states". Getting them on our side isn´t the solution, it´s the problem. When the Electoral College was designed, it was never thought that there would be solid, non-changing liberal entrenchments in high-electoral areas. Even when I was a kid, for the most part you didn´t know what most states would vote. California, where I live now, will never, ever be anything but a blue state. Liberals in SF, LA and "Latinos" will see to that. So as long as the liberals bribe the swing states, we WILL NOT SEE A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT.

Do you guys get that? No, "we have to get a better message" or we "need a real conservative" is going to change that.

Hate to say it, but the country just changed. Look out for your families and friends the best you can, and look for ways to skirt around government regulation. That is what we are facing, deal with it.

WE have to do what Breitbart did. Talk to the liberals that run from us or attack us. How?

One-on-one is what we should do a little of every week this country miraculously stays afloat. For heaven´s sake, folks, he went to dinner with Ayers & Dorn!! He invited the conversation, he didn´t treat them like "us vs. them".

He asked the question: "Why do you hate me?" Then he shredded their programmed rhetoric with facts.

Then he used the internet & cell phones, then lectures -- later came the MSM & FOX once he gained notoriety.

We need to join the Party that he & Palin caused to explode -- the Tea Party. We have to push back with knowledge & information. The Baby Boomers are aging now & we can find more time to do what we did when we were young: PROTEST! Make the media listen! I´m through expecting the Old Guard GOP to do this. I am sending them a letter telling them why I am resigning.

We need to buy air time & produce programs that address the media lies -- even going back to what SNL did to Palin & then comparing her to Biden. If the networks won´t sell us airtime, sue & demand the FCC take their licenses for not allowing equal time! Our own Sixty Minutes type show on an alphabet channel every Sunday night. Fight fire with fire! Take our country back!

I.Am.Breitbart.

On the contrary, that was a major reason for the EC, to prevent mob rule from the populous cities. In fact our Constitutional Republic was set up to prevent the ´´tyranny of the majority´´. And the urban mobs look like they are heading for majority status. The main reason that they do not control the house is that so much of the mob are concentrated in geographically small urban districts where even damaged-goods Congressman like Jesse Jackson Jr can get 80% of the vote when they campaign, and 71% when they don´t.

To paraphrase Talleyrand, this election was ´far, far worse that a crushing defeat; it was a blunder´. Principled conservatives warned incessantly about Romney, your quintessential grinning goober type and Dewey/Rockefeller/Scranton/Weld clone, losers all. But we were told to sit down and shut up, as he was the Man. The reality is cold and hard. Willard Romney stood for anything, everything and nothing, all in the same sentence; a fact the voters clearly understood. His elitist pretentions of good breeding, schooling and nice manners never connected w/working class voters. Never. The GOP replaced the Whigs. Who will replace, the long dead fossilized carcass called the GOP?

I am consoled by the fact that the House of Representatives is still in Republican hands, many of whom are conservative, and by the fact that 33 Republican governors can do plenty to slow, attack, and thwart Obama´s socialism. There are 49% of us who will be resisting. That will impede the socialists and the communist-mentored president. Meanwhile, I will be indoctrinating my children and grandchildren (and their friends when possible).

#22, in talking to people who voted for Obama, I´ve heard exactly those sentiments. I´ve heard that he was a rich boy who would say anything to get what he wants and who doesn´t care about anyone but himself, that he had no plan and no vision. This was the Obama strategy: portray Romney in just this way, and run against him rather than running on Obama´s record. It worked. But what is puzzling is that people fell for it rather than holding Obama to account. The Republican party either has to start listening to conservatives or die because they are going to lost us. If anyone says, "Where will you go?" we´ll say, "We don´t have anything to lose. The Republicans don´t represent us any more than the Democrats would."

#15, I don´t know where you get your information. Our Tea Party pays for office space. We have held weekly meetings and have had roadside rallies almost every weekend for the last four years. We interview, and vet any candidate that asks for our help. We all differed on who we supported within the GOP until the last man was standing. We paid for a phone bank and called registered republicans all over the country to get out and vote for Romney. WE the Tea Party did not stay home, the blame does not lay with us.

#26. For the record, I´m certainly not into martyrdom and have no idea what your talking about. In simple English, Willard Romney was a terrible candidate; which principled conservatives warned about repeatedly. He was a trendy leftist running as leader of a center-right party, hence Talleyrand´s ´blunder´. The voters knew in their bones he had no core and so chose the incompetent devil they knew. Suggest you reflect on reality and park the abuse.

Bangui (Central African Republic) (AFP) - A mob lynched a Muslim on Friday after he fell off a crowded lorry driving thousands of frightened civilians out of the strife-torn capital of the Central African Republic. A large convoy of lorries and taxis packed with Muslims fleeing Christian vigilantes headed north from Bangui under a slew of insults from angry residents, locals said. The mob set on the victim after he fell off one of the lorries and hacked to pieces his body, which still lay by the side of the road by late morning, an AFP photographer saw.

The 41 employees of Extreme Dodge in Jackson, Mich., are very familiar with trade-ins, but this year they’re learning about trade-offs as they come face to face with the new realities of health care. A few workers say they’re getting a great deal, but most have a severe case of sticker shock. “I feel like I’ve been taken to the cleaners,” said Neal Campbell, a salesman. The news was presented at the company’s annual benefits meeting earlier this month, when employees were told that the health insurance plan that the auto dealership had provided its workers was canceled because it doesn’t comply

One driver who emailed News 4 said a deputy and others dressed in safety vests directed drivers to take part and answer questions about alcohol and driving.

"First off, political advice from people who ran the Romney campaign is probably something nobody should really give a darn about, so let´s start with that," Christie told ABC´s George Stephanopoulos. "But secondly, all these issues have been vetted and if I ever run for anything again, they´ll be vetted again." Christie was responding to comments from Ted

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
