From where I'm sitting at 8:22 in Cal. Fox has Obama at 275 when only 270 Electoral votes are needed. There are a lot of swing states, though, where the vote is 50-49% like Wisconsin so it's a matter of the exit polls being right or wrong that may hang things up.
Still, no matter which way this goes (and it looks like it's going Obama's way because we all know, if it's close the Dems will steal it), I'm asking myself how I could have misjudged the white American people so badly.
I really thought it wouldn't be close with such a creep in charge, an economy self-destructing, and a future bleaker than now if there was no change.
Apparently, in four years Obama was able to enslave that many more people to the Govt largess, and consolidate the media and Corporations onto his side. The Plutocrats, of course, hate competition and love rent seeking.
Then there was Romney. Mr. Nice Guy without any principles or conservative values he cared to fight for.
Could Reagan have won under the present circumstances? I think he could have because he was able to communicate a great and powerful message of what liberty means. Romney never could. Romney said, "I'm a good businessman and administrator, so elect me because I'm more competent than that failure over there."
He is a good businessman and administrator, but he doesn't believe in anything except in wanting to be president because it would be a real final feather in his cap. He was a beta male like so many Republicans (moderates).
Another triumph of Conservative Inc. the Republican establishment. I think (I hope) this loss (if so) will be the end of the Elephants. Its failure is so immense and gross that the only answer is a third party, a new party.
No more people telling us we need everything, but the white vote to win. (But even then, it's probably too late. Whites are sucking the Federal teat in massive numbers and don't care about liberty. They won't consolidate in ethnic identity and protection for survival. Except for the South and a few Ice States, whites do not care to survive or even compete for dominance.
I guess the Dems have started loving the Electoral College if the popular vote with Romney strongly ahead holds up.
If you have a job and will likely be able to keep it, thank God. If you have some gold and silver squirreled away (or real estate), thank God.
If not Romney, who should have been the candidate? None of the people on stage during the primary debates. Paul Ryan should have run. Mitch Daniels? I don't know. Chris Christie? Not a chance. Not then. Not ever. Sarah Palin? Probably not. The Media did their job and poisoned too many people's minds against her for this cycle.
Reagan was such an affable, glad handing, back slapping, story telling fellow that's it's difficult to pin point what made him extraordinary. Bill Clinton has all the above qualities in spades, too.
Reagan had steel. He had a fierce love of the good and the true. He was much smarter than given credit for, but since he relied on original ideas for his thinking and arguments rather than lazy ideas and clever distortions of reality, he was criticized as unoriginal. Original ideas are those that are always true, wise, intellectually honest, and derived from the Originator of all ideas.
