    Default Why Romney Lost

    Romney said, "When I'm elected, I will put Americans back to work,"
    and 51% said, "The Hell With That!!"

    These are not my words........they belong to the 51%...........

    Romney lost because 51% of the people that live in these United States are too stoopid to live in a free society.

    Mitty is a RINO, that is why he lost. He did not get the Conservative Republican base to vote for him.

    And no other "Conservative" Republican could win for the same reasons. The moderate Republican base would never vote for a Santorum, Gingrich, etc or any "Conservative". If you can't get the two sides to work together to defeat a Communist then the Republican Party should just close up shop and dissolve the party altogether. Maybe split into two or three parties. We already have "conservative" parties like the Constitution Party and the "Libertarian Party". Even had populists like Ross Perot that gave the presidency to Bill Clintoon, not once but twice.

    Romney did hurt himself by swatting away the hands of the Tea Party and Libertarian wings when they extended a proverbial "olive branch". When they should have come together, all sides just squabbled instead of worked to unseat the Communist-in Chief. We really do get the government we deserve in the end. We did this to ourselves and we deserve every fecking ounce of pain that is inflicted upon us as a result.

    Which is why I have been prepping for a long time. I am fortunate enough to go off the radar and go "off grid" if necessary and stop contributing to the tax base - stop "feeding the beast". I am perfectly capable to letting America collapse into chaos and societal collapse. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm just too tired to fight it anymore and I have thrown in the towel. I won't be wasting my time voting in rigged elections rife with voter fraud, with mediocre candidates, turncoats, etc. It's obvious that the Republican Party is effectively finished. We had our "Red Pill - Blue Pill" moment and we collectively chose the "Blue Pill".

    The culture of the "New America" is now swiftly turning sharply to the socialist left and the majority of the people desire a Nanny State. They can have it as I am closing in on my final days anyway and will be beyond caring. Sometimes you just have to call it quits and laugh at the absurdities of life. America had its last chance this last election and they threw it all away for more "free stuff" (love those "Obama Phones").

    We never learn from history and what we are seeing in America is the final stages of "The Fall of Rome" all over again when the people raided and plunder the treasury, taxed the rich into being poor, and were content with "bread and circusses" as the Roman Republic collapsed around them only to be replaced with an authoritarian emperical government.

    neither president would enforce the constitution, and thats alll that matters to myself. personally i believe not awhole lot would have changed if Romney won. All roads lead to Rome. Until a candidate rises up whom pledges his allegiance to the constitution and will actually defend it. I will not care for presidential candidates.

    Unbelievable. over and over you so called patriotic Americans are willing, it seems eager infact, for collapse of the country you supposedly love to occur.

    I don't care how good of a prepper you are, how secure you believe your home base, cabin, bunker, or whatever is, if others want it they will take it away from you. Once the hordes leave the cities and work their way into the rural areas your desire for collapse will take on a different light. Especially if TOTAL collapse occurs and the military collapses right along with it and soon you have roving bands of military troops with their own tanks and helicopters. How many of you preppers can stop one M1A1 Abrams tank coming up to your "Secure Location" let alone 2 or 3 or even 10 being operated by renegade military troops? How many can shoot down an attack helicopter, let alone 2 or 3 as they pound your secure location? Or how many of you could hold off a dozen or so determined attackers? See it is all well and good to believe you are bullet proof when you talk about a handful of ill prepared or ill equipped stragglers attempting to take your stuff, and another completely when you are talking about heavily armed and well trained military personnel, or a mass attack by heavily armed civilians.

    Frankly, as dissatisfied as I am with the state of affairs of the country I DO Love, I would never wish to see collapse of that country to prove a political point.
