Last night, November 4th 2008, Obama won the Presidency with both the popular vote (by 6%) and the Electoral College (by a wide margin). This victory was possible because of votes from a record number of African Americans, young voters, and discouraged Republicans. The election was essentially over by the time the polls closed in California.
The defeated Republican candidate, John McCain, showed his frustration with his supporters at his speech. As they groaned, screamed insults, and booed at every mention of Obama, McCain held his hands up and hushed them several times, with obvious frustration as he voiced his support for the future President and urged his supporters to show the same support.
I thought, for a few moments, that maybe America could be healed. Then I signed onto Newsvine....
Fight on conservatives. Our country is under assualt from within. Never give in and never surrender. Fight this Marixst tooth and nail. Fight for your freedom. Fight for liberty. Fight to spread the truth and educate people about who they mistakenly elected. This is the first election bought through a corrupt media. The people were fooled and the truth will be known.
There is no Unity when it means sacraficing your liberty. Resist everything this fraud stands for.
I don't compromise with people who authorize killing live devilered babies, Marxists and people who want to eliminate the 2nd amendment. Sorry, negotiable. That's what people have spilled their blood for in defense of our country and others around the world. Over my deadbody will I give in, and there are 10s of millions just like me out here.
Our love of country is what you hate. You are the haters. You hate life, you hate families, you hate self made success, you hate morals. You love homosexuality, you love oppressing people, you love controlling people, you love immorality, and you love taking other people's money. As is typicaly in your Alice in Wonderlanmd world, up is down and down is up. Sorry, not buying your bullsh*t.
Hitler was the last politician who garnered huge turnouts.
A hugh turnout means nothing other than a lot of people are will to suspend belief regarding reality.
Hitler was charismatic, but he was not a good leader.
Charisma and the ability to draw a crowd, does not equate to a good leader. Just ask all those people in Aushwitz or other prison camps.
So it's the day after the election with over two months until Obama takes office and here's what we have: He's like Hitler, because he won the popular vote; anyone who voted for Obama hates values, families, babies, freedom, and America; We're now a Socialist country because he wants to keep the current tax system in place with a 3% increase for the wealthy; those who voted for Obama love murder, oppression (funny coming from those who oppose gay marriage... whose party also opposed voting for blacks), terrorism, etc etc.
So can the healing begin when the fringe Right believes that this is their country, and only their country? Can we heal as long as the radical Right thinks that America is going to be ruined (ignoring the 8 years their party had control and ran this country into the dust)?
Maybe our problem is not in the leaders, maybe our problem is in the population of radical extremists who are trying to take over this country.
