Post Obama Win, Tea Party Not Backing Down

What a stupid statement from Jenny Beth Martin. Romney/Ryan was a fantastic ticket. The contrast between R/R and Obama/Biden could not have been more stark. I'm afraid we may just have to accept the fact that the majority of the people in this country no longer understand or respect the Constitution. It's either that, or those that do care about it somehow did not translate that into the need to vote. I hope those that wanted a more "perfect" ticket did not refrain from voting for Romney. If they did, then the four more years of destruction that will be done to this nation is on their heads as much as it is on the heads of those that voted for Obama.

Sorry, but with Obama's record, or lack of one, a ham sandwich should have been able to beat him. Romney was and is an establishment squishy moderate.

godownfighting. Sorry. It was a losing ticket. That is not "fantastic". The Ryan pick was OK but the flagship of the GOP was a squishy moderate. A better man than Ø, no doubt, with some fine accomplishments, but he lost. I can tell you why, but you would ignore it. The same way you will ignore everyone else saying the same thing. It's "stupid".

As long as the GOP wants to keep veering away from a conservative tack, it will continue to be a loser. That should hardly come as a surprise. I voted for Romney despite my deep dislike of the pick because the Ø is thoroughly repulsive and corrupt.

There was every reason to expect Senate gains. There was every reason that Ø should have been defeated. I hate "I told you so".. but I did. Many times.

Did you read my post? I think that my saying "I'm afraid we may just have to accept the fact that the majority of the people in this country no longer understand or respect the Constitution," is my facing the fact that the majority of Americans don't want us anymore. However, what the majority wants does not determine which principles are right or wrong. I'll still keep advocating for the founding principles. If Romney had won, would you have gone away and quit fighting for your beliefs?

You're correct, Shoppin. America also doesn't want freedom and economic prosperity.

It's time that conservatives realize that and make arrangements to protect their wealth from the Looters and the Moochers.

Akin was a weak candidate that was practically handpicked by McCaskell. Luger sank Murdock because of sour grapes, and because he thought that after all these years he was entitled to his seat. Allen West was beaten, because the Republican party carved up his district and made it more pallatible to the Democrats.

Is this what you want for our society?

"Citing state nondiscrimination law, officials at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA are standing by their decision to let a 45-year old [transgender] student with a p_enis use the women's locker room, and walk [naked] in front of girls as young as six."

Liberals have lost their sense of discernment between what is good and not good for society and a civilized world.

godownfighting, of course I read your post.

Absence of a Romney victory means nothing to me with regards to my continuing the fight for Constitutional liberties. I'm not concerned with the "public" leaving the Constitution behind because once they are educated to the principles involved, they don't.

My point is that if the GOP feels they can succeed with elitist squishy moderates then they are destined to fail. Always.

The majority of people will vote for strong, principled leadership. Squish will never produce. Ø-lite will never produce.

But you and I both know that the "wizards" at the GOP will listen to people like libtroll "shoppin" thinking that is where their wisdom lies. The libtrolls aren't trying to help the GOP. Duh.

godownfighting. I hate to say it but Romney/Ryan wasn't a fantastic ticket. They lost. And it is turning out that it wasn't that close. Obama will end up with over 300 electoral votes.
Unfortunately Jenny Beth Martin's comments will sound like sour grapes. And they probably are. IHowever-f the next four years are as bad as the last four- don't put it on the heads of people you don't know voted or not. Lay it where it belongs- the people who re-elected Obama knowing full well who he is, what he has done, and what he intends to do.

Despite a President Obama win last night, the Tea Party Patriots are vowing to keep fighting against big government and out of control spending in Washington D.C. They've also expressed great disappointment in Mitt Romney being what they describe as "handpicked" by the GOP establishment and is holding that establishment responsible for the loss last night.

 “For those of us who believe that America, as founded, is the greatest country in the history of the world – a ‘Shining city upon a hill’ – we wanted someone who would fight for us,” Jenny Beth Martin, National Coordinator of...
