Obama victory comes with no mandate. “‘The mandate is a myth,’ said John Altman, associate professor of political science at York College of Pennsylvania. He pointed to Obama’s small margin of victory and the fact that U.S. voters are divided deeply by race, gender, spirituality, and party affiliation. You can’t claim to be carrying out the will of the people when the populous has little shared will.” Maybe it’s the mother of all Pyrrhic victories.

Try and tell that to those about to tax me into oblivion.

The only mandate I saw last night was that the Conservatives have to be prepared and ready to confront each and every false claim coming from the left. The first place to start is with what in the hell went on in Benghazi. This nation deserves and wants answers.

Oh, we will start getting answers. I saw CNN at the Doc office this morning, and they had the NERVE to be talking about Benghazi, and that neither candidate showed a difference in the handling of the story. They appeared gravely concerned that there are some unanswered questions. It was all I could do to not throw something at the TV.

Now that O is safely reelected and there is no Senate to impeach him, ALL the dirt is free to flow. I just could not believe they were flipping us off by starting it first thing this morning.

This story will die a quick death. The media will flush this away asap. And of course, there will be no consequences for the political crooks or the media crooks. (Pardon those redundancies.)

Does anyone think that the dems give a CRAP about a mandate? They will steamroll over what is left of our shredded constitution, with executive orders and sequestration.

We need to accept it – they OWN us now. And unless we fight back hard, we will never get ourselves back.

Marco Rubio, if You Can…
Sorry, that was a personal inside joke, but how I’m already looking at it in my head while licking my wounds. One thing I learned from Sun Tzu and years of reading everything I could find about Navy SeALs is there is no dishonor in running away when you’re getting your ass kicked; it allows you to regroup, rethink and go back and finish the job.

I am feeling very negative right now. Thank you for your positive thoughts.

Not that that was supposed to be sexist(oh, roses & Godiva, everythings all better), it was just faster than Pshopping a pic of Rubio behind a podium w/ the Presidential Seal. Was fishing for a smile.

Make sure you thank all the effing idiots who wrote in Ron Paul or voted for Gary Johnson. I hope they enjoy the giant ass-reaming they’re about to get. They essentially gave votes to Obama.

No mandate? Are you sure? Interesting, since the Speaker of the House, ol’ “too-tanned with no-nuts” Boehner has seen a mandate for “common ground.” Y’all better get ready to hold on to what wallet you have remaining.

Who gives a rats behind about whether there is a “mandate” or not? I don’t. Parasites have taken over the country and it is finished. This country has finished its course and it is only a matter of time.

I now fervently oppose the Federal Government and encourage other patriots to do so. Trump is right – we need a revolution and the South needs to secede again – and mean it.

I would rather die in the middle of Interstate 20 in Texarkana than live in a country ruled by hapless, incompetent, dangerous, lying sorry, greedy walking pieces of excrement.

What would Thomas Jefferson do? Sam Adams? John Adams? “The tree of liberty must be nourished from time to time with the blood of tyrants.”

THE TIME HAS COME. I HATE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

You are right. But right now, the hatred I feel for those that are taking the greatest nation the world has ever known and turning it into a vessel of redistribution, I am disgusted beyond words.
SO disgusted that I actually thought I might become pro-abortion because killing babies in the womb must be preferable to watching them grow up in a country like the one we have today.
All I know is that this nation has 60 million traitors that deserve the wrath of the ghosts of Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln.

There are winds blowing in the direction of secession. This one will be over the fact that those of us who believe in a small none intrusive redistributing government are not going to take it any more. For those that wish to sit on their collective asses and beg for the crumbs from the table, good luck. When there are no more crumbs and no one to go begging from in your area dont come to mine. The reception won’t be friendly. As Hank Jr sang “A Country Boy will survive” and all you lazy none contributing bastards can go beg from barry and KMA.

This country is indeed divided deeply by race, gender, spirituality, and party affiliation. Just the way Obama orchestrated it.

The Liberals learned how to buy votes using our tax dollars, we all know this isn’t going to end well. I plan on being far away from the urban hell holes when the free shit runs out, and I’m taking what little money I have with me.
Buy food, gold, and ammo, before the dollar becomes totally worthless.
