Let’s have a little perspective
on the election, please

Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 11/9/2012 10:59:47 AM

Woe is us. But next time, the woe will be for the other guys. Keeping that in mind is the secret of surviving the morning after. Losing an election always hurts; winning hurts the other guys, which is why winning is so sweet. This one hurts conservatives a lot, and it’s particularly painful for those with unrealistic great expectations. Pessimists abound. Rep. Ron Paul, who holds the North American franchise for pessimism, says we no longer have to worry about the “fiscal cliff” because we already lie in the rocks and weeds at the bottom of Gruesome Gulch.

Gosh Mr. Pruden, the Dems and Repubs kicked the Conservatives butts again, and likely will now finish the destruction they started - cause they are going to go full bore to get in place what they want, so they can close the door fully on us.

This has nothing to do with changing demographics, and everything with stacking the deck, with complicity from the other side.

Sorry, Wes, but this one was different. We're not going to recognize the place by 2016.

He makes some good points. Obama's victory parade will eventually fade and voters will look for an alternative.

I clearly remember people insisting that there would be no election in 2000. Clinton would declare martial law and it would be over.

For those from the beltway, politics is everything, so when one side loses, it is always catastrophic to that side.

Don't get me wrong, I was devastated to see the results Tuesday night. I truly hope the Republicans just stand aside and let Obama get what he wants. It is going to take our economy and culture getting much worse before it gets better, just like it takes the alchoholic hitting rock bottom before they change.

I am just thankful that I live in Nebraska. I truly think the flyover country will weather the storm much better than the coasts. I believe that America will once again prosper, I just don't know how low we will have to go before that happens.

Buck-up conservatives. God Bless America!

The next 4 years are plenty of time for the progressive/socialists to "improve" on their previous efforts to make America into Socialist Europe. I don't think it is enough time for those young, stary-eyed, Obama worshippers to finally wake up to the reality that thier current standard of living, quality of life, and all the "goodies" they currently take for granted, are simply not going to be there. Graduate from college after incurring a huge debit to cover tuition, then what? Get a job? Just exactly where are you going to find employment at a level to permit you to pay off that debt you incurred? Corporations and small businesses, where in the past you may have found employment, will no longer be an option for as we speak, they are closing doors and laying off employees in preparation for ObamaCare. .

And ObamaCare is only one nail in the coffin of your avaiable opportunities. The Progressive/Socialist, which you aligned yourself with, have even more intentions of further bringing down the "Capitalist System" which has provide you with all you find so grand. And I haven't even mentioned your share of the National Debt you've inherited and will come due and payable just when you think things can't get any worse. Might want to start honing your Chinese language skills in preparation for that day.

Sorry, but there won't be ''another time'' ever again.

Within the next year, at least two conservative justices on the Supreme Court will either ''unexpectedly retire'' or have ''accidents'' that force them to step down. NØbama gets to replace them with lie-beral activist justices. That is the end.

NØbama then immediately announces amensty and instant citizenship for all illegal alliens who have been here more than 6 months. Boom, millions of new Demon-RAT voters that turn every red state blue over night. In a shocking announcement, the Supreme Court rules his actions constitutional. They make the rules and can do what they want, thanks to the Contitution that they are destroying.

Come November of 2014, the Demon-RATS gain a super majority in the Senate and a large majority in the House. Game over. The Republican Party is as dead as our republic. The Demon-RATS have the single party socialist rulership that they always fantasized about.

No, we are never going back. There will be no ''make up elections'' in 2014, 2016, or ever.

Forward to a socialist dictatorship. That is what NØbama promised, and he will deliver.

I know, I know. You think there will certainly be some place you can find a job and make a living. Just remember that when they pass "Amnesty" you will be competing against millions of here-to-fore "illegals" who will fill those job positions for far, far less than you can work for and still make ends meet.Plus they will be given "minority bonus points" to put them in line ahead of you. Oh! Wait, those people won't have the college degree that you have, so you'll get one of those high paying corporate jobs not available to them. Good luck with that. Most large corporations have in the past decades been crying for lossening up the visa requirements for highly skilled and educated folks from India and others places as the quality of those peoples skills and work ethic are far, far superior to yours. Oops! Foiled again. Do prepair your nieve little brain cells (both of them)for the severe degradation of your personal standard of living that is surely coming. Just remember the age old adage " Be careful what you wish ffor!" You asked for it. You got it! So please,spare us the tears and sniveling. You'll get no sympathy here

I greatly respect Pruden's perspectives, but imo he's off key this time. The election was not about liberal v conservative, or Democrat v Republican; it was primarily about morality v immorality. Hollywood et al have now bred a substantial majority of immoral citizens in this dying country. One day Mitt Romney will be thankful that he is not responsible for a country that could not be resuscitated.

If it is not over, the list of available options is getting short. Those commies have stacked the deck with crooked voting officials, bought and paid for news media, useful idiot academia, and multi generational sedentary parasites to make sure they stay in power. Those who dare produce must produce for them. The rinos have done nothing to get back our freedoms, and in some cases take it away themselves. (Can you say Patriot Act?). They run candidate after candidate who do not inspire, but are sure willing to play ball with the insiders.
We have few if any politicians on our side. The hour becomes late.

If they push it too far,we'll have to do what our Declaration of Independence requires us to do: alter and/or abolish the government. By force if necessary. And rebuild it with attention to the mistakes made by our founders. They never envisioned career politicians, for example. They never envisioned a judicial theocracy. Even the idea of a public school system (a socialist idea) was not theirs. We need to rebuild from the ground up. Obama and his cronies may give us the opportunity. God can turn anything into good. Remember that.

Even though I admit to overindulging on Tuesday night, Pruden has some points. The quality of life in the US was worse in 2010 than it was in 2008. We cleaned their clock. It was even worse in 2012 and it was not unreasonable to expect that the trend will continue. 2014 almost assuredly promises to be worse than 2012. Lets not blow it this time. With full control of Congress in Republican hands, Zippy will be a true lame duck. Beyond that who can tell in politics? The Constitutional Republic of the Founding Fathers is not dead but has taken a severe beating. But it has before. Think of 1861.

Pruden is a dolt. No wonder the establishment Republicans keep losing to a nobody, overrated narcisist like 0bama.

I mean really, how do you lose twice to someone like 0bama? Does anyone think that Reagan would lose to 0bama? And, the establishment Republicans hated Reagan; they wanted Bush Sr. to win.

The republican party does not deserve the continued support of the Tea Party.

My apology to Bighorn for "mis-reading" his tongue-in-cheek humor. Animal House was not my type of fare so I must claim ignorance to the reference. Besides, there are much more serious issues before us than my stupid error.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.” “I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd. Paul’s address at the Berkeley Forum on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone metadata and the debate over privacy.

A man was arrested after Las Vegas police said he pulled a gun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night. The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued.

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - The FBI is helping Malaysian authorities investigate deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday, wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty. The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur´s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of "hiding the truth" were removed from the room.

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image. At the Newspaper Association of America´s mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in

The seasonally adjusted price index for uncooked ground beef jumped 3.8 percent from January to February, as the average price for a pound of 100-percent ground chuck rose from approximately $3.59 in January to a new record high of $3.73 in February, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS’s seasonally adjusted price index measures the relative change in the price of product from a baseline of 100. From January to February, the price index for uncooked ground beef rose from 248.864 to 258.323, its highest level ever. The 258.323 price index also indicates that the

"Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work," President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress. With this in mind, he is now planning a "White House Summit on Working Families" to take place this summer. Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration. Since Obama has been in office, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management, the percentage of women in the civilian federal work force

Have you had enough of the testing tyranny? Join the club. To be clear: I´m not against all standardized academic tests. My kids excel on tests.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing
