Welcome to the most anticipated Ldotter Thread since Hanging Chad night in 2000. Feel free to chat in a dignified way. Keep your tempers under control and should the best thing happen, let's celebrate together. It's been a long hard slog. We couldn't have done it without each other.

I turned off the cable TV election results and looked for abnother country to emigrate to. The USA is flushed down the toilet, and it is time to leave.
Buh Bye.

The Republican Party is too damaged to recover from this loss. It has to do what the Whigs did in 1856: Throw in the towel. Dissolve. Form two new parties -- a moderate but progressive party that will attract centrist Democrats who are concerned their party is moving too far to the left, and another party where all the people who consider abortion to be the #1 issue facing America can gather together. The party of Lincoln, which was formed from the remnants of the Whigs, is kaput.

We have lost everyhing we worked 37 years to build together. Our stock,savings and 401K are gone and now our house. 25 years of mortgage payments...all on time, stopped only because the bottom fell out of my husband's business and our income has been reduced to one third of what it once was.

This was our last hope for rebuilding before retirement. Only God knows what's ahead for us. We still have each other, thankfully all of our kids are finished with college (we did that with NO loans too)this was going to be "our time." Insted we live like paupers scared to spend a cent.

What I feel the worst is about the other things that have happened in the past 4 years...Fast & Furious, wild spending on nothing of value, the enslavement of millions of Americans now looking to "Big Brother" for their livelyhood. And finally, the tradgedy of Benghazi. I am haunted by what went through the mind of Tyrone Woods when the realization hit that he was played for a fool...no one was coming to help.

So many prayers offered. Maybe God has a plan that will one day be revealed.

Maybe Barak and Joe will be forced to resign over Benghazi...that will make Boehner president. Not my first choice but it still works.

It's sad that the #1 issue driving voters seems to be abortion. Ironically, the US is way more liberal on abortion than the European socialists that the Democrats apparently revere. Most Euro countries place restrictions on mid and late term abortions and none has declared the right to abortion a Constitutional right. Now with O picking Supreme Court justices and a comfortable majority in the Senate, the right to abortion on demand will live on for generations. And what about Obamacare. Hello, John Roberts? I guess the democratic process doesn't work as well as you thought.

#900 – Ldotter #47’s post may be helpful in responding to your questions. Further, would add that, as an explanation of “why” some “leaders” and not others, it has been said that sometimes God gives us who we deserve rather than who we need. This country has turned away from God; Scripture reveals that time again, when God’s people turned from Him, God’s blessings were taken from them. Lastly, it has been said that this world is in its “last hour.”

“… Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy.” ~ Revelation 22:11

How anyone who watched this campaign could say Romney was a bad candidate is beyond me. We would have been fortunate to have Romney sit in the oval office with Ryan as his veep.

Now we have to watch the President who would not save 4 Americans on American soil in Benghazi try to stop Iran from getting the bomb; we have to watch the President and the Ds deal with all of the inevitable bad things which will result from Obamacare; we get to watch the President, now with no one else to blame, explain why America is faltering; and we get to watch old media die. I will NEVER spend one dime on a newspaper again. I will NEVER watch ABC, CBS, PBS or NBC again - not even sports - nothing.

To #905, and anyone else putting their hopes into the House of Reps staying republican------

Boehner is the speaker. (need I say more?)

This election is showing that 2010 was an aberration.

The reps in the house get elected every two years, not six like the senators.

I recall reading a long time ago, that 2012 was our best chance to regain control of the senate, as more Pubbies then democraps will be up in 2014. (I hope I.m wrong)

(Does anyone have info on who's up for re-election in 2014?)

I do not know why this prayer to be rid of this un-American interloper was not answered tonight. Lord knows that we've prayed for our nation every day since it fell into the hands of this enemy in 2008. And I cannot pretend to know the mind of God, but I do suspect that when he DOES answer our prayer for our nation it will be in a way so outrageous and so surprising that we will declare as the Scriptures say: "This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes."

In the meantime, read the book of Nehemia in the Bible. He appointed himself to help rebuild the city walls of Jerusalem. He had a plan, kept it close to his vest. He had his mockers and God protected him and his task until completion. And so must we now rebuild our own nation: stone on stone; principle on principle. The world will know us by the contrast we create to the debauchery, the filth, the killing, the theivery, the ignorance & stupidity. There is no defense to righteousness and that's why the left hates us; we hold up the mirror to the reality they do not want to see.

I am comforted to see some old names and many new names on this RT. We have cried on one another's shoulders many times before and here is yet another sad time. But it is not the end; not yet. Not for me, anyway; and it should not be for the rest of us. God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. Tomorrow we begin another round of the the good fight. Blessings, LDotters. Gracious Lucianne, thank you for this forum.

It seems the tipping point has been reached. More takers in this former republic than producers. What do I tell my kids, 7, 6, and ,2? Their the ones over in the next room with the surprised look on their faces because they each owe (as of today) over $200,000 in national debt, and have nothing to show for it. We did our job here in Missouri, with the exception of that selfish jerk Akin. The statists who have brought about our demise in other parts of this former republic, I can't find strong enough words for my contempt for you. I don't blame God for forsaking this country, our misery was brought about by our own hands.

Is it too early for me to call out John Hinderaker of Powerline for stumping for Romney over the other GOP candidates? He said we needed to pick Mitt because he was the kind of moderate we needed to win in November.

Sorry, John. I'd rather stick to my principles.

As the little header at Drudge says we are, even more than before, "A Country Divided." Many of us won't sleep well tonight. As in the Recent Unpleasantness, we are going to lose family and friends over this election and new friends will be difficult to make because of trust issues. All I know is we have to keep on keeping on. Our country has been through worse times and we have endured.

Churchill said it best when he spoke to the British government in 1940:

I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering.

You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory. Victory at all costs — Victory in spite of all terror — Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.


This too shall pass.

Our prayers were answered...just not the way we wanted. Prayer is not about telling God what to do, after all. God has a reason for this. We know from the Bible that a nation can only thumb it's nose at God for so long before judgment falls...

I'm really sad tonight. I also fear for our country, but hey, Obama has the national headache now and the blood of Benghazi to answer for. Our country is truly divided and she's listing on the waves of the ocean now like a one-proud ship who has a fool for a captain.

It's painfully obvious that no candidate - not a perfect Conservative or a decent plain old Republican can overcome union thuggery and plain old cheating at the ballot box. When the left can prop up a mentally disabled person to vote for their candidate, you know the process is deeply flawed.

I plan to ''go dark'' with TV news and only check in on the headlines online. The gloating of the MSM is too hard to bear.

How in the hell did all those pundits get it so wrong? I am so ashamed to live in Ohio right now. The fools! Goodnight friends. Chin up and trust in God to see us through.

Unfortunately fiscal catastrophe is now staring us in the face with no hope of a change in tack. Fully half of the country by numbers is not only opposed to the president, but vehemently against him due to the campaign he ran. He will have trouble with support in any future crises and he will be actually hobbled in making important decisions due to that half the country not in support. The victory is shallow. The country will suffer. His narcissism will be insufferable. But good people will continue to do good things. So keep doing good things.

#937 it will not matter. Obama will rule by Executive Order and Senate-ratified UN Treaties. Since when has a split country hindered him for one nanosecond?

Re Benghazi--who will take the fall for that is Hillary (doesn't need her or Bill anymore) and the very quiet Gen. Petraeus (ret.) at CIA.

"As for God, His way is perfect." Psalm 18:30
Without that assurance, I'd be a lot more discouraged than I am now. "Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, 'It is well, it is well with my soul.'" God will have the last word, no matter what is said now. And Psalm 2 is heartily apropos at this time.

God still rules in the affairs of man. His people are exhorted to pray for those in authority that we may lead peaceable lives. And, so we shall, and do.

1 Timothy 2:1-4

1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Some words I've seen that match my thoughts.

We were all duped into believing maybe there was a chance America was still the land of the free and the home of the brave

Unfortunately, we have a lot of dysfunctional, self-loathing liberals, free-loaders and low-lifes concentrated in certain key welfare-oriented states that are forever to hijack our elections

Obama his team brought every street derelict, mental patient and wayward soul they could find to the polls, paying some off with cigarettes or alcohol or cash – and got them to press the lever on his behalf. The lowest of the low are deciding the fate of the whole.

Don't trust any pundit or prognosticator or talking heads. I was gullible enough to believe them. The Conservative Koolade is no better than the Liberal stuff.

We were told to trust GOD? "What Hath God Wrought On Us"?

At the risk of getting yelled at, the absolute truth is that the GOP needs to stop pushing social conservatism in the election cycle--especially those issues that can be construed as intrusive into peoples personal lives. I KNOW that in truth, it is the left who wants to control people. BUT, as I've said before, it is ALL about perception. I don't condone lying, but we would be much better off if we change our public views regarding abortion (maybe saying we are more accepting of choice during the first trimester)--even if we work quietly in the background educating the public and working toward making abortion less common (and perhaps eventually ending it). We'd not only gain more support and wouldn't be seen as unreasonable. AND we'd make late-term and partial birth advocates look like insane extremists. Same with other issues. Most important, Reps need to personally reach out to poor and minority communities. Talk to them & HEAR their concerns. Not pander to them...Just see what we can do to help...

You know...I could understand the seething loathing from Democrats if we were running someone like Reagan on steroids, but in the last two elections our candidates were two of the most middling, almost-a-Democrat, reach-across-the-aisle non-partisans you could hope to find. One was a war hero who had survived capture by the Vietnamese and who Democrats lauded as their favorite Republican until he ran against Obama. The other is this shucky-darn squeaky-clean guy whose biggest "scandal" is that he once had no room in the car for his dog. To hear Democrats tell it, they narrowly escaped being ruled by Master Blaster.

There are some wonderfully wise words on this page. How I appreciate those posters who realize we should always be depending on God rather than politicians. For those who would compromise more with evil in order to ''win,'' you might just as well go on over to evil, but don't think you can take the rest of us with you. God's people will ultimately be the winners. Praise His name.

Thanks to all the LCom staff for this site and to all of you for the conversation. I've been up nearly all night praying and searching for answers; looking at pictures of my grandchildren and weeping for their lost liberty. This defeat (at nearly every level) is more than just poor political tactics and such. I fear it is a tipping point and signals the loss of the Republic in the near future now that Barack has more "flexibility". Who's going to stop him? God, have mercy on our children. Please forgive us for our slothfulness with the precious gift of liberty.

We may be forced to come to the realization that God is all we need, because God is all we have left. Was traveling last night and went to bed at 9. Woke up at 430 and saw Drudge. Very disappointing. The only consolation is that NC went for Romney. So my family's votes were not totally in vain. But this does not bode well for the future.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

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

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
