Lots of thoughts on the election tonight. I don't know where to start. Firstly, as a Christian conservative, I am fed up with being portrayed as a racist homophobe who hates poor people! That is NOT who we are. It is not who Mitt Romney is. It is a lie. For those of you who know me, you know I am intelligent, well-informed, compassionate, and hard working. Most conservatives are. There are some bad apples, of course, but they don't represent us. The biggest lie that has been perpetrated through political correctness is that disagreement or disapproval equals hate. That is just not the case, but that is a topic for another post, as is the fact that as a woman I am insulted by the assumption that all my political concerns begin and end with my "lady parts"-also a topic for another post.
As for the election tonight, I am stunned and saddened. How people cannot see through this horrible, petty man, I'll never understand. He has damaged this country and in a second term it will become absolutely unrecognizable. This man is a radical and now that he has no concerns about re-election, all bets are off. He has been divisive, not a uniter. He foments racial and class envy and discord. People are lazy and don't bother to look into the truth of things. Obama has gotten away with blatant lies and not gotten called out. The media has covered up for him and withheld stories more than once. This man is all style and no substance and for the life of me I've never seen this "charm" or likeability" that the fawning media talk about. My wonderful "assessment skills" that people have raved about at work for years tell me that he is a complete narcissist and liar. In 2008 I asked his supporters to tell me what he had accomplished to deserve my vote. They couldn't tell me. Same thing this time. Obamcare is very unpopular and he really hasn't accomplished much else, even when he had 2 years of a democratic majority in Congress to do what he wanted.
I just have this to say: if you voted for this evil, or did nothing to stop it, don't ever complain about what is to come; high energy prices, inflation, stifling government regulations, unemployment or underemployment, loss of freedoms (especially religious and speech), increased taxes, long waits, rationing, or denial of medical care once Obamacare gets into full stride, when a few more anti-gun Supreme Court justices are chosen; don't you dare complain about it to me. You chose this. We tried to warn you but you wouldn't listen. You have robbed our children and grandchildren of a better future.
Do some real research on this man. Stop getting your news spoon fed by the legacy media who have lied and covered up for him. He is not the savior you think he is, and while you're at it, take a look at how economics really works and maybe read our Constitution. He is a wolf in sheep's clothing and his ideas are harmful to our freedom. Of course, its too late, but do it anyway. He is going to govern from the hard left and as a conservative, I fully expect to be marginalized. This is a leader who talks about voting for revenge and punishing his enemies. You can say he's just the president and we can do something in 2016, but I'm afraid it will be too late to un-do it.
You may think I'm crazy, that's fine. I read a lot. I research a lot. I am constantly surrounded by people with opposing beliefs and have mine challenged. I don't live in a conservative bubble. I am not stupid, uneducated, or a sheep. I think time will prove me right. Believe me, I'd rather be wrong. I guess the lesson for me in all this is that while being an involved and informed voter is a good thing, my time would probably be better spent working on my spiritual life, which has been lacking. In the long run, that will get me a lot farther.
