Why We Lost the Republic
American Thinker, by Timothy C. Daughtry

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 11/7/2012 5:00:51 AM

With reports of voting irregularities in several battleground states, we might never know who actually won the 2012 election, but we do know for sure that it is Barack Obama who will occupy the White House for the next four years. And now we will find out if countless patriots at Tea Party rallies around the country were on to something when they voiced the fear that America will not survive four more years of Barack Obama. For those mainstream Americans who were alarmed enough at the radicalism of the Obama agenda to get involved in politics for the first time in their lives,

I worked as an election judge in a predominately liberal-black neighborhood. The turnout was HUGE. I am not exaggerating to say turnout was over 85% at this location. The vote was over 92% for Obama. What do socialist/Democrats offer them? Promises of everything and anything? What do conservatives offer them? The possibility of success after hard work and risk.

They voted for socialist promises. Indeed, the Republic is lost. Welcome socialism.

I think blacks voting for Obama is true; however I believe Obama really never won an election without cheating, fraud, lying, smearing and stealing.

The Republic was not lost, it was - misplaced.

Or rather our faith in the innate good sense of the voting public was misplaced. Because they take baths with some regularity and drive to work each day (those who still work, anyway), it was also assumed that most still possessed critical thinking.

But alas, critical thinking is no longer a basic requirement to vote, if it ever was. Glaring malfeasance of office by those in high positions, bad public policy followed for ideological reasons, and sheer incompetence are no longer regarded as any restriction or impediment to retention of elective or appointive office.

Like Samson, we can only strive mightily to bring down the Temple of Dagon upon the Philistines' heads.

Eventually the promises of socialism won't be kept. We'll run out of money soon and the austerity measures will begin. Frankly, it will be better if Obama is around when they do.

When students can't find jobs and can't afford college they'll wake up. Same with minorities.

I was hoping enough people will have awakened by now, but no. There's still a lot more pain to come. The best we can do is prepare for it.

This was Obama's mantra in the last debate.. send in the teachers as the solution to every problem! Sadly the stupid brainwashed outnumber the patriots and producers who love freedom. I didn't want to believe those final polls but they were correct. Too many drones who will never understand why things are so bad and getting worse every year. They are the ones who trade freedom for security and get neither.

Republicans have a strategy of attracting voters at election time.

Democrats have a strategy of creating voters all the time.

Whether as Republican or Tea-Party, we Constitution-oriented citizens will have to educate, convince, convert, and create our own voting majority.

All we have going for us is the truth. But the problem with today's moderates is, we'll also have to convince them that the truth is relevant!

It's gonna take a miracle, but miracles are possible.

#1, they turned out to keep the free phones coming. And the fact that 70% of black children are raised by a single parent, they got off their butts the one day they had to, to keep their baby daddy's (GOVERNMENT) check coming on the first of the month. Race relations in this country are irretrievably broken, because blacks vote for free money for themselves.Taken from us.

#5 is right--- but can the pain ahead re-educate 50 years of socialistic thinking imbedded in the minds of our children?

Can pain overcome the lack of understanding that grips this country about the horrors of socialism?

Or will they, and Obama, still blame Bush when inflation hits 40% and 50% are out of work?

All I can say is, I am very depressed. I will cling to the Cross and to the promise of Jesus that the Gates of Hell will not prevail. There may be bad times ahead, and I fear deeply that there's a spiritual rot in America that will come back to haunt us.

As for me, I will hold to His promise and "be not afraid"

Today, I had hoped to change my user name to “Heal America”. That will neither be necessary nor possible. I believe this great nation has been sold to the worst elements in our society; those who will continue their willful destruction of our culture. What can we do? Show faith and determination, and resolve to expose the Socialist/Democrats who now rule our once-great republic for who and what they are. And, yes, to continue our fight to Take Back America.

Obama says "vote for me and get your free stuff"!

But you see, NOTHING is free not even FREEEDOM!

Asking Washington and Wall Street for complete transparancy (as required by Main Street) will be the only way that corruption and wasteful spending will be reduced.

We need to keep the faith and continue to hold our leaders responsible for their actions.

The left's maro brainwashing has been going on for 50 years. What kept them in check was older more conservative voters. Those voters are dying off and being replaced by the handout society voters,who couldn't care less about tomorrow,much less next year or 5 years from now. It's about instant gratification.

I mean how many people are virtually retired in their 20,s never having contributed anything to this country. Meanwhile you have other fools driving to work everyday,putting up with moronic bosses and traffic jams to have a marginally better life than the bloodsuckers.

It's going to get a lot worse. Obama is going for revenge against whites more than ever now.He'll find your assets and steal them to keep the freebies coming to the worthless underclass.

Obama is only one man, there is no way he could have pulled this off without the total and complete corruption of the MSM. They are the ones that have my contempt and hatred. They are the ones that sold their souls and abused their credibility for money and glory. They are the ones that gave away our birthright. Yes, there are other bad actors in this Greek tragedy, but theirs was the responsibility to inform, not to conform. Treasonous, cowardly and corrupt. When the enemy takes over, they will be the first to go, and good riddance.

Remember the media. Cancel any subscriptions to any media. Why would you want to support their nefarious activities? You'll need that subscription money anyway. Do not register online with any media--the more who register, the more advertising dollars they make. Never mind how much you like the publication, unless it's National Review or Washington Times, it doesn't like you. If you really can't stand to lose a magazine, go read it at Barnes & Noble or the library.

Obama's ad expenses were in the region of $265 million; Romney's around $110 million. You cannot counter lies about the candidate if you spend less than half of the amount he spent.

Obama had the services of an unmatchable data-mining operation. Those whose phone numbers were in it knew They knew who they were. Conservatives need to found their own operation, no other way to counter this. (And not as a private company, make it a political foundation--the data-mining company used by the Democrats gobbles up every competitor.)

And, yes, the takers had much to do with Obama's win. Shun those who take--they obviously did not listen to you and are not your friends. They are receiving and spending YOUR money.

Any other ideas?

This has been coming for years, but I thought with a defeat of the current regime, we would get another 10 years or so.
Not only have they got demographics on their side, they count the votes.

I am embarrassed that so many Americans would throw away their heritage so easily. Four years from now they will again ask "are you better off today". What do you think the answer will be? I am not saying America is done with (I do have my doubts about a good future for most of us) but it sure will be a long four years.

I recall that in my lifetime, a democrat president remarked: "Ask not what your country could do for you, ask what you can do for your country". At the time, it was the popular soundbite of his inaugural address.

So totally out of place today, as America has become divided among a slight majority of takers, and an ever shrinking minority of producers. Atlas has shrugged.

This is a really, really stupid comment:

..it leaves unanswered a more fundamental question: why would the electorate tolerate such partisan bias from the news media, let alone allow it to influence their votes?

Because they behemently deny that bias exists. How the heck are they supposed to know about the bias when all they pay attention to is CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC and so on?

I have a friend who is a liberal whose main sources of info are the NYT, the LA Times, CNN and the Boston Globe. She claims to read "the other side" all the time and thinks THEY are biased.

The rest of the populace who don't pay attention to politics except at election time, vote strictly on aesthetics and the mood of our pop culture.

Let's not forget that the Greatest Generation is almost died out and that America long since became secularist, which means that crudeness, coarseness, substance-lessness and emotions rule -- Obama and his generation provide them in abundance.

We conservatives lost because of exactly what I feared: They misread the value of morality and truth among Americans, and they
failed to recognize the effectiveness of public school indoctrination that has been quietly perking for decades.

We lost because people want what Obama is selling: Soak the rich and give me their stuff. Then burn the Constitution, take away everybody's guns and Hush Rush.

We Tea Partiers placed our trust in the GOP as the vehicle to preserve the Constitution. They had all the issues and the worst pResident in history to run against. It was their election to lose. They lost it. They are losers.

It is time to go to plans B, C, and D. Those plans do not include the GOP. Those plans do not include "Charlie" Chris Christ-ie. Fu-getta-bout-it.

All the snarky remarks sure to come from the Romneybots and the Establishment Pubs will not change the fact: You are Losers. You were wrong - again. Yet another one of your RINO candidates - lost.

In sports you fire the coaches in a situation like this. The political equivalent is to fire the RNC. Reince Priebus is a Loser. The McCain advisers who hung on to steer the Romney campaign are - Losers.

We're down to a new political party of, by, and for the middle-class. Country-clubbers and Wall-Streeters need not apply. We're down to possible civil war, or at least civil disobedience. We're down to desperate measures.

The Dictator has consolidated his power.

This should be the last time we hear the argument to let the Dems win so the population will learn a lesson from the disaster they cause. The dems have brought disaster and enough of the population does not know the reason why and re-elect the cause of the disaster. It is an immense task to re-educate a drone electorate. Just try to teach one drone let alone half the population to see reality! Freedom depends on the moral fibre of the electorate. This is much easier to loose than to regain. Reagan estimated the time frame on this at a thousand years. Seems about right to me.

Countries come and countries go, but God alone endures.

I am very sad that America, as a whole, has chosen to destroy itself. However, God may be planning to let the evil play itself out to its inevitable end. Then, when the culture of death has finally burned itself out, a new and glorious culture of life will arise on the ashes. It may be closer than we think.

We are very possibly witnessing the death of our Republic. Time will tell. The chances of everything going wrong just increased exponentially, and there will be tens of millions wondering why when it does. The only question we have to ponder is, when will it all come tumbling down? It is now way past time to batten down the hatches.

#16 you are right as usual but I'm guessing 60+ years of brainwashing. So many Americans have never heard of Patrick Henry or even understand "give me liberty or give me death" - they have never been withour freedom. #32 you said what I am thinking - countries come & go. God will either destroy us completely or bring us back from the ashes. I told my son last night "the sooner the cliff appears the better" so that the Tea Party & patriots can begin the repair of our Republic.

No the problem is not the Republican party. Mitt was, and still is, a decent man, who, like McCain was fairly centrist. Look at the vote totals and you will find the problem. There are too many voters who have an insatiable appetite for government money and benefits, and those who are too afraid to vote for a change when things are bad. Cannibalism and fear are a lethal weapon to truth and fact.

Essentially, the producers now have visible targets on their backs, lit up the takers in society.

When Truth is rejected by a majority of the electorate, and irrational and emotional appeals are the only thing that sway voters, then it is imperative that the Republicans adopt a similar platform. Unfortunately, feelings are what drive today's voters, not facts. Until we are ready to fight on an emotional level, we will continue to lose.

Transparency in our Spiritual Life...

It isn't over, by a long shot.

Pert near 50% of the voters voted against Obamunism.

The commys cheated and stole at every turn, and the marxist media aided and abetted the scum everywhere. The crooked mafioso unions and their goons and the 47% parasites were picked up and hauled to the polls all day long to vote early and vote often. Not to mention all the dead minorities in every ghetto and reservation. Voter fraud rules us now.

You cannot tell me Sarah would have done worse. Being too scared to alienate idiots is not the way to go.

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it. But to the airheads on the left and their JournoList spinmasters -- the

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Apart from me, there is only one other non-Democrat I know of in my immediate D.C. neighborhood. Let´s call him John Doe, because he´s petrified that he´ll be the next target of this extra-constitutional gang from Chicago and wouldn´t want to see his name made public. I hadn´t seen him around for a while, but yesterday afternoon there was a knock on the back door. No one ever uses it so I figured it was the gas meter reader, but no, it was John who scurried in, using the cover of the large fig tree branches out of fear he might

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the
