IF YOU HAVE NOT YET VOTED… What the $#@% are you waiting for? Go do it now.
Rolling Updates (newest first):
I am not vouching for or against the accuracy of any links posted here today. We all know what a zoo Election day can be. Read the items and decide for yourself. I will attempt to post updates, corrections and the like as the day progresses.
11:24 PM: FOX and all the MSM are projecting Obama is re-elected. I am beside myself. Apparently, my countrymen can be fooled twice and have blinders on to the last four years of failure, debt, scandal, trampling of the Constitution and assault on our liberty.
In 2014, the Dems have twice as many seats in the Senate to defend and I see another 2010 election coming. We can do this dance for 2 more years. I fully expect the Oversight committee to go for the jugular on Benghazi. I know I will be doing little more than beating on THAT drum in the coming months. This president now has carte blanche to deliver the final death blows to this nation.
On a personal note – I need to step away from the blog and related writings for a little bit. I’ve dedicated the better part of 3 years to this fight, just as many of the friends I have made along this journey have, and I’m a bit more than heartbroken to see the results tonight. I say more than heartbroken, because I do not see things improving in a second term under Obama, but rather worsening. I will be shoring up my family’s position in every possible aspect. I would urge everyone reading this to do the same. Harder times than we see now are coming.
Thank you for patronizing this blog and sharing what you’ve learned here. I will return, but I need to step away for a bit.
God Bless you and your families and God Help this nation survive.
11:16 PM: FOX calls OH for Obama. I am going to drink a lot now. Jehmu Greene can kiss my ass with her Ohio poll analysis.
11:15 PM: FOX has the projected electoral count 263 Obama, 203 Romney.
11:12 PM: Fauxcahontas is going to be Scott Brown in MA. I can’t believe that socialist cow is going to win.
11:10 PM: MO moves to the Romney column.
11:02 PM: NC is 98% counted and Romney is up by 2%. ABC can do what they want, but I’m calling my home state for Romney.

9:21 PM: Republicans projected to retain control of the House.
9:17 PM: ABC is calling PA for Obama with only 7% reporting. I think they called this too early.

9:02 PM: McCrory wins NC governor. Acceptance speech ongoing at this time.
9:01 PM: Ellmers wins in NC. Romney projected to win TX, KS and ABC calls MI for Obama with only 9% reporting. I don’t buy MI yet.
