      Here’s my take on it -

      Big Bird won and was a poor sport about it…
      …then he punched Romney in the face!!!
      …Romney is a compassionate conservative and only told him that he loved him… This made all
      Republicans very sad.

      Then Jesus and Chris Christie wept…
      …over Bruce Spring-stone, a dinosaur peckerwood that hasn’t had a hit since Bush the Elder was in office.

      …and all the Democrats clapped on, but thought he was the Maytag Dishwasher repair guy!

      America is fun – if you are high.

      As we now know, Obama managed to convince enough voters that socialism is the way forward for our country.

      The House of Represenatives remains in control of the Republicans and that is our only hope to slow down the socialization of our once great country.

      The stock market is down this morning and on the way to a big loss. The job creators in the market place find themselves looking at the 1930′s once again.

      Obama will try to make government the final say in all things in this country. The people will become wards of the state and our great American country will slide towards third world status.

      This makes me sick that we have failed as a nation to teach our young people the real values of the American Dream. Those under 30 will never know the real freedom that was once the great standard of our society.

      Fox News exit poll summary: Obama’s key groups made the difference
      By Dana Blanton
      Published November 07, 2012

      Obama’s key groups made the difference — both in their makeup of the electorate and, for the most part, their strength of support for him.

      Non-whites made up 28 percent of the electorate, up a bit from 27 percent in 2008. This group largely backed Obama: 71 percent of Hispanics (it was 67 percent last time), and 93 percent of blacks (down a touch from 95 percent).

      Obama pandering to Black and Hispanics with Obamacare

      Alexander Fraser Tyler – ‘The Decline and Fall of the Athenian Republic’ 1887

      A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the Public Treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always followed by dictatorship.”

      “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two-hundred years. These nations have progressed throught this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to abundance; from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back again into bondage.”

      Gov. Jan Brewer: President Obama Is ‘Race-Baiting’ And ‘Pandering’ For The Hispanic Vote
      August 28th, 2012

      Arizona’s Republican Governor Jan Brewer told POLITICO this week that President Obama is “race-baiting and pandering” for the Hispanic vote, all while accusing her and other Republicans of being “bigots” for their hard-line stance on illegal immigration. …

      Asked if she thought the president was race-baiting on the issue of immigration, Brewer replied: “Absolutely, I do. There’s no doubt in my mind.”

      ”He panders to them,” Brewer continued, referring to Hispanic voters. “Look what he’s done in Arizona. He doesn’t secure my borders. He’s told the border patrol to look the other way.”

      Black Voter Turnout Key to Obama’s Virginia Hopes

      Black leaders, including pastors at historically black churches and local politicians, spent recent days attempting to gin up the type of enthusiasm here that helped carry Mr. Obama to victory four years ago. They are focusing, above all else, on getting voters to the polls

      Rev. Levy Armwood, pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, a 154-year-old church in Jackson Ward, said some blacks were turned off by the president’s endorsement of same-sex marriage and by the overall weak state of the economy.

      But Rev. Armwood, speaking to a reporter as he greeted members of his church after Sunday’s services, said he believed black voters would ultimately overlook those issues and vote for Mr. Obama because they believed he would be better for them than Republican Mitt Romney.

      So who won?

      Posted November 7, 2012 by Klaasend


      When this current chapter of the American story is considered is considered it appears that Barack Obama has emerged the victor. However … Her ntire story has yet to unfold.

      There were tears among those who were gathered yesterday evening at my son’s inlaw’s home in Lynden, Washington when the writing was on the wall. The election outcome was not as hoped for … not as prayed for but … it was also realized from a position of faith that Barack Obama’s rise once again would not have happened if it was not in God’s ultimate plan.

      People of faith may claim to trust God with all their hearts but when all is said and done patience without answers while waiting on His Will is an ongoing battle for many. We want to read the last chapter of the book NOW!!


      Romans 8:28
      And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.

      Isaiah 55:8-9
      “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

      Philippians 4:7
      And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

      Loving Natalee
      A Mother’s Testament of Hope and Faith
      By Beth Holloway with Sunny Tillman

      Pages 100-103: I rise and make my way up the hillside to the next cross and the next one and the next, repeating my prayers.

      I am looking to the sky, which is growing bluer as dawn breaks, and talking to God. And as I reach the fifth cross, the answer to these prayers comes. Complete peace blankets me, and I am still. It’s a familiar feeling, yet unknown to me like this before now. It comes in total stillness. Silence. And in this instant I know that Natalee is with God.

      I understand that from the moment she got into Deepak Kalpoe’s car her heavenly Father wrapped His loving arms around her and cared for her through whatever ordeal she encountered that night. I don’t know if she is alive or not, but I know that He is with her.

      He entrusted me with her care for eighteen years. Now I must trust Him to care for her. So I never ask Him why. Why Natalee? Why me? I don’t ask. To do that undermines faith. Instead, I form an “acceptance trust” with Him there on the windy hillside. God never questioned me when she was in my care. I must not question Him. I realize that He is as proud of her as I am.

      Thoughts of Natalee’s personal relationship with God comes to me. He knows her very well. And she knows Him.

      Natalee was very active in the Community Ministry for Girls in Mountain Brook all four years throughout high school. The founder and director, Donna Greene, shared a special moment with me just before graduation. Following the very last Bible group meeting about two weeks or so ago Natalee told her friends to go on without her. She was excited and glowing as she told Donna that she knew for certain that she had communicated with God. She knew He had heard her.

      Donna’s first words of support when Natalee went missing were, “She knows how to call on God”. In these thoughts I received the blessed assurance from the Creator that rescues me. And I am at peace.

      The weight is gone. I move to the next cross, making my way on up the hill stopping and praying at all fourteen crosses. The Stations of the Cross. The depiction of the walk Jesus made to His crucifixion.

      The sun is up as I reach the top of the hill to see the Alto Vista chapel. When I step onto the chapel grounds I am free, Liberated from the pain for a precious few moments. The wind is blowing hard, and I feel Natalee. I talk to her. Promise to find her. Get justice for her. AND PLEDGE NEVER TO GIVE UP. NEVER.

      I think about what just happened, pondering the human spirit. Apparently it can withstand a lot more than I every dreamed possible. Mom is right; God is good. All my life I’ve heard people of many faiths talk about “taking it to the cross and turning it over to the Lord” or just simply “turning it over. NOT THE WORK THAT HAS TO BE DONE. JUST THE BURDEN. I cast it upon Him so that I may be sustained. And I am renewed, resilient. Thankful for however long this resurgence in energy will carry me. I will pick up one foot and put it down. Then the other one will follow. I will breathe. THERE IS MUCH TO BE DONE.

      Election 2012: Obama gets his “revenge,” but conservatives must stand tall
      By Michelle Malkin
      November 7, 2012 12:09 AM

      The Romney/Ryan team fought well and hard, inspiring Republicans and conservatives across the country to get out the vote and fight for restoration of our founding principles and free enterprise. …

      Once again, we have our work cut out for us. We lost this election, but we still live in the greatest country on the planet and we still have many ways to fight for and defend it.

      My counsel to you tonight: Please, do not be bitter. Do not fall prey to the Beltway blame game. Do not get mired in small things. Do not become vengeful creatures like our political opponents who voted out of spite instead of love of country.

      We still have boundless blessings to count — and to secure.

      I remain a proud, unrepentant believer in the American Dream. And I know you do, too. Freedom will endure because we will keep fighting for it. We can’t afford not to, friends.

      Earlier this evening, when many conservatives on Twitter started despairing, I quoted from Psalm 46:10. Elections come and go. Faith endures:

      He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
      I will be exalted among the nations,
      I will be exalted in the earth.”

      Chins up. Stand tall. We’ll fight again tomorrow.

      Fordham University has published a ranking of the most accurate pollsters of the 2012 in terms of national trends, and (both) top spots were held by Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, the North Carolina-based firm.

      Director of Fordham’s Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy, Dr. Costas Panagopoulos, based the study on pre-election polling and compared it against the results from election day.

      “For all the ridicule directed towards pre-election polling, the final poll estimates were not far off from the actual nationwide vote shares for the two candidates,” Panagopoulos said in a statement. Here’s the whole list:
