The immoral majority won

  • Follow Letters

There are two roads leading to the White House: the high road and the low road. The low road begins where the high road ends.

Mitt Romney was unwilling to travel the low road, and therefore was not elected president. President Barack Obama won because he was more ambitious and willing to travel the low road to earn the votes of the reprobate and baser elements of the American electorate.

The Occupy Wall Streeters, public assistance recipients and those with despicable lifestyles were the difference in this election. The immoral majority won.

Deceived

These right-wing folks are really something. They suppress the vote, speak hatred toward undocumented immigrants, gays and women, they demonize the poor, they think they own a woman's reproductive choices, they are bigoted, greedy and underhanded.

Yet, they define liberals as immoral. What a complete joke.

Don't be sore losers

In every Presidential election it's the same thing. People think the Satan party won. It's been that way since this contry was founded.
The difference is that once the President is elected the gloves are supposed to come off and we all get behind whoever won. That was what made this country different than any on Earth. These days it seems that the losers cannot or will not accept that their party lost and they'll be danged if their going to help the President do his job. Yes my party lost but I'm behind our Commander in Chief. I'm not going to whine and hinder my President. I will support him like all US Citizens should do. If you're just going to complain for 4 years why don't you just move to Canada or better yet Mexico. I don't want to hear it.

(sarcasm) I take issue with

(sarcasm) I take issue with the letter writer. There is no such thing as immoral, except by current standards accepted by the majority. What was immoral decades ago is now acceptable. Much of what is immoral by today’s standards, will be moral in the coming years. Just think of it! There is just no telling what your grandchildren may do while remaining moral within acceptable bounds of their current society. (sarcasm)

Think of the possibilities! Why it's not far-fetched to imagine a time in the not so distant future where the word “moral” will be considered hate speech punishable by law!!!

Shrimp, I agree with you for the most part. We should try to support our duly elected leaders. To a certain extent. Also I believe your take on history is a little off. What made this country different was the lawful ability of the citizenry to disagree, loudly and forcefully, with what they believed to be destructive to our republic.

Specsta, If you actually believe the caricature of “right-wing folks” as painted by pop culture (and pop culture includes most media), then there is no reaching you.

Of course the right wing suppresses the vote, Gee Obama might have won in every district with over 100% of the vote and none for Romney if they hadn't. What can you say about a party that will elect an 8 time felon to public office?

I will not support the

I will not support the President because he is a liar and power hungry with no understanding of what makes America run. Example of Obama’s lies, the death of our Ambassador was due to a demonstration. Then during the debate he said the day after it happened he called it an act of terrorism and had Candy Crowley confirm it. Yet on the Sunday after the attack he had his UN Ambassador running around to all the talk shows calling the killing of our Ambassador a demonstration over a video that got out of hand. When Obama spoke to the UN he referenced the video and the demonstration. Well during one of those statements Obama lied. Then yesterday Obama said the earth is heating up faster than expected. The Best study demonstrates that there has been no warming for over 10 years and you can reference Dr. Judy Curry (co-author of the Best Study) of Georgia tech for that fact. No I won’t support a chronic liar who tries to use his lies and the office of the president to manipulate the public. I want the left who criticized Romney for Lies and flip flops to hold Obama to the same standard. Of course they won’t!

Now this is really strange. I

Now this is really strange. I always thought Republicans were the strong supporters of the Constitution and the founding fathers. Yet, when we follow the constitution and the majority express their opinion, they are critizied. Republicans want their cake and eat it too. The Looney Tooneys caused the republicans to lose. You see them as guest for Hannity and other Fox Commentators. i.e. Plain Palain, Bauchamann, West, Rove, That clown that O'reilly has on that is so boring, Beck, Rush, and the list just goes on and on. If Fox were not there, the results might have been different. Have you noticed that all the states that want to commit treason for the second time and secede are all located in the South. Will the South forever lag behind the rest of the country. South: this is the year 2012. Hello!! The rest of the country is laughing at the South!!

Don't you remember at the Dem

Don't you remember at the Dem convention-when they reluctantly decided to add "God" to the platform it was booed and voted against. See Progressives don't believe in christianity so they don't believe in sin so they don't believe in morality. They can't be immoral if they don't believe in it. A president who lies by default (least transparent president in history), murdering American citizens w/o due process, allowing Ambassadors to be murdered, drone attacks of innocent children, no problem to progressives-they've committed no wrong. Y'all sure can be silly. Only the GOP can be immoral-they are greedy rich people who stole your money, they hate women-but love babies, they are all racist, they don't believe in science. You have to worship the Science God if you're a progressive-so humans are just another animal and human life has no dignity-don't be ridiculous no difference between killing a mouse or man-at least according to science. All those nutty religious types make man a special creation-in the image of a god no less. With special dignity to the life of human-what hogwash eh. You can only be immoral if you have a morality.

You think it's moral to base a whole campaign on lies?

To promise austerity, continued income disparity, war with Iran and other military adventurism? I think you're overdue for some serious soul-searching. I, for one, am glad to see your demographic shrinking, and I hope Republicans don't run the executive branch again for at least another generation.

You have to wonder about a population that elects a President who will throw away over 200 years of legal strides for "rights" by assassinating an american citizen without due rights. It is like electing a dictator and sayin' you have all the power-kill who you like. But we can count on "journalist" exposing any injustices or infringements on our freedoms.

Specta seems to be wrong about a few things. Such as yesterday when he/she indicated that Papa John's was owned by a huge company with billions of dollars....had no idea that they were owned by small business owners.....but then again THAT wouldn't fit the stereotype, would it.

I'm sorry, Specta......did I use some racist code words or something?

As my mother used to tell me

As my mother used to tell me growing up.........."NOT telling ALL of the truth is as good as a lie." The DEMOCRATS, not OBAMA are the "real" culprits here; I invite you to read the OBAMACARE bill; DEMS bad mouthed republicans, charging "the republicans want to deny quality healthcare to American citizens who cannot afford adequate medical insurance." In REALITY, all the conservatives wanted was to trim the fat BEFORE passing the bill................read pages 1131-1133, and look where we are now obligated to provide COMPLETE medical care to Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands; $7B going to Puerto Rico alone. NONE of these entities are required to pay ANY taxes, fees, or penalties back to the US Treasury. WE (republicans AND democrats) now have to foot ALL of the bills for this. THEN go to the section of the new law, that talks about participant eligibility; it states that SS and Homeland Security already know that there will be illegal, ineligible moochers on the program !!! Then in the next subsection of the bill, makes it ILLEGAL to create a federal database to identify and track those who are receiving services illegally.

EVERY DEMOCRAT, that I have shown this too, stated that they did not like it, and these things should be taken out !!!! The real problem, is that when HR3962 was being "pushed" so strongly, the ONLY part democrat voters could or would hear was..........."the republicans want to deny quality healthcare to American citizens who cannot afford adequate medical insurance." In the OFFICIAL title of the bill, the last four words tell all of the story............sure it is a healthcare bill, but the title ends with these words........."and for other purposes."

How do we support our duly elected leaders when they're at odds with each another? In my case, the president wants one thing, but the duly elected senators from my state want something much different. The president was elected to lead us one way, and the senators were elected to stop him.

Still Waiting

I am still waiting for an Obama voter to give me a good solid reason they voted for him. Retired Army tried the other day but I refuted his reasons using facts and never heard from him again. There is no Logical reason for supporting Obama and the price for their "emotional" support for him will be paid by us all. By the way...have you seen the job numbers today ????? This is you hope and change and it hurts minorities the most.

We should vote based on biblical absolutes

    There is no such thing as immoral, except by current standards accepted by the majority. What was immoral decades ago is now acceptable (Young Fred).

Young Fred, you're right about the terms "moral" and "immoral." They're subjective like the terms "right" and "wrong." Mores and norms vary from culture to culture and change over the years.

That's why I prefer biblical terms (e.g., "sin," "righteousness"). They represent absolute standards from an eternal, unchanging God. Sadly, this election was carried by a majority of voters who didn't let biblical principles guide their decisions.

Search the facts

Obamacare has nothing to do with healthcare it is all about making the Federal government larger, more powerful and control more of our lives.(less free) Does anyone disagree with this statement? You could have taken the just amount of money Obama is spending on the "administration and enforcement" of Obamacare and purchased insurance for all Americans who had no insurance.

Raising taxes on the top 1 % will do nothing to reduce the federal debt. Does anyone disagree with this point? You could confiscate "all" of the wealth of the 1 % and only have enough to fund the government for 3 months. In 1916 the richest man in the country was J.D. Rockefeller and his wealth alone could have paid off the entire national debt. Today you could combine the wealth of the 2 wealthiest, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett and only have enough to pay " the interest" on the national debt for 3 months. Is this a taxing problem or a spending problem?

You liberals need to take a careful look at the facts and repent !

Just yesterday Pelosi,

Just yesterday Pelosi, standing with her gaggle of admirers made the statement that the billions taken from Medicare by the Dems were to extend the life (?!) of Medicare -I know..it was to support Obamacare-
anyhow, she said that the Repubs wanted to take that same money to give tax breaks to the wealthy. Vicious, mean..vile...Not all, but way too many Democrats have trashy mouths, to them lies are okay, and an useful way to make fun of those who don't bow to them..

According to folks like Karl Rove the votes must have been suppressed, else how could Romney have lost?

Where in the world did you get that $ number. The CBO projects that in 2014 when full implemented the admin and operational cost will be 144 Billion. Just the 16,500 new IRS agents will be more than your number. In addition, the CBO projects that President Obama’s national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law. All this to cover only 30 million people. More fun facts of history: If he facts below apply to Obama care you can add several zeros to the CBO estimates.

In 1965, the House Ways and Means Committee estimated that the hospital insurance program of Medicare - the federal health care program for the elderly and disabled - would cost $9 billion by 1990. The actual cost that year was $67 billion.
In 1967, the House Ways and Means Committee said the entire Medicare program would cost $12 billion in 1990. The actual cost in 1990 was $98 billion.
In 1987, Congress projected that Medicaid - the joint federal-state health care program for the poor - would make special relief payments to hospitals of less than $1 billion in 1992. Actual cost: $17 billion.

Many times I have read posters who say that Obama has not followed the Constitution, That he has shredded it and trated it like it didn't even exist.

Now I want someone, anyone to name one instance where Mr President Obama has not followed the constitution.
Just name me one instance. I have heard many of you say he hasn't followed the Constitution. It shouldn't be too hard to come up with one instance.
