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

This morning on "This Week," New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie brushed off criticism reported in the new book "Double Down" from a member of Mitt Romney´s 2012 vice presidential vetting team, saying his advice was not something he should "give a darn about." "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

Republicans Must Use Social Issues

Everyone knows why the GOP lost in 2012. Social issues distracted voters from the winning Republican economic message – at least that’s what most people believe. A new report released by American Principles in Action, a 501c4 organization based in Washington, D.C., states that this theory, while widely held, is incorrect. The problem with this belief is two-fold. First, the social issues, if played on offense, actually help Republicans win elections. And secondly, the GOP economic message failed to connect with middle class voters immediate economic concerns.

An Iraq War veteran´s towering SpongeBob SquarePants headstone has been removed from her final resting place because officials at the historic Cincinnati cemetery deemed it inappropriate for their traditional grounds. The headstone of Kimberly Walker, 28, was made in the likeness of her favorite cartoon character and erected at Spring Grove Cemetery on Oct. 10, almost eight months after she was found slain in a Colorado hotel room. Despite getting the cemetery´s prior approval of the headstone´s design — a smiling SpongeBob in an Army uniform, with Walker´s name and rank — her family said Monday that cemetery staff called them the

Egypt: Islamists hit Christian churches

CAIRO — After torching a Franciscan school, Islamists paraded three nuns on the streets like "prisoners of war" before a Muslim woman offered them refuge. Two other women working at the school were sexually harassed and abused as they fought their way through a mob. In the four days since security forces cleared two sit-in camps by supporters of Egypt´s ousted president, Islamists have attacked dozens of Coptic churches along with homes and businesses owned by the Christian minority. The campaign of intimidation appears to be a warning to Christians outside Cairo to stand down from political activism. Christians have long

President Obama took his case for ending the sequester to hundreds of disabled veterans Saturday, saying he protected their benefits from the “reckless” cuts to the federal budget but suggesting next year might be different. “It’s hurting our military. I made it clear that your veteran’s benefits are exempt from this year’s sequester,” the president said to the applause of hundreds at the Disabled American Veterans´ convention in Orlando, Fla. “But I want to tell you going forward the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether.”

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
