    Well, I must admit I was in total shock as to what happened on Tuesday night--and depressed a couple of days after. But several things have occurred to me--as to how the "revenge voters" won and how the "love of country" voters lost.

    How the revenge voters won:

    1. I know a couple of people--the (99 weeker's of unemployment) who have told me that they are much better off than when they were working for their pay. Getting unemployment checks--food stamps--being able to take their kids to the doctor for a total fee of $3.00 per visit--that really don't want to lose that. They are in fact enjoying this new taxpayer funded life--and really could care less about heading back to work. One them actually told me that they can miss 3 months of a house payment and then qualify for almost a 0% interest refi of their mortgage? I don't know if that's true or not--but they seem to be fairly certain of it--so they have purposefully not paid their home mortgage for the last 3 months. There are MILLIONS of these people that voted on Tuesday.

    2. It's apparent that the other "revenge voters"--comes from General Motors and Crysler who (in the end put Obama over the top in Ohio.) The union auto workers--because their jobs were saved by taxpayer dollars came out in force in Ohio to vote for Obama. Another "buy your vote policy of the democrat party." Now be certain that myself will never buy any car manufactured from General motors or Crysler again--because I am now taking my "revenge." Buy Ford motors--they didn't get a bailout--they didn't need one. I am a small business person and I sure didn't get a government bailout.

    NOW WHAT THE REPUBLICANS DID WRONG: How the 'love of country voters" lost.

    1. During the primary season all candidates-because of the Tea Party--went balls to the wall against Hispanics in this country. Threatening to deport illegals--even ones that have settled into our society for decades. They were going to break down the doors drag them out and send them back. Romney even stated that during the primary season--and Rick Perry lost his bid for the nomination because he stated we needed to have "heart" when it came to Hispanics in this country. Of course Romney after winning the primary moved to the center and called for "self-deportation."

    2. Then they moved into birth control contraceptives speak--with Newt Gingrich's announcement that Catholic institutions should not be forced (through Obamacare) to pay for something that is against their religious beliefs. Then we have Rush Limbaugh calling a woman a "slut"--and that's all we heard about for the next several weeks--and the "WAR ON WOMEN" campaign started. To add to this blunder--we had a couple of very old white senators--who made absurd comments about women who are raped. One stated that their bodies can shut down and they won't get pregnant and another who stated that if they do get pregnant from rape it was "Gods Will." So we have old white men telling women how things work when women get raped--LOL Of course both of these senators LOST their bid for reelection--and they deserved to lose.

    Until the Republican party can get it together and stop focusing on gay marriage--birth control contraceptives--abortion--and focus on issues that are critical to this countries survival--they will continue to lose elections until they no longer exist. They also need to take a much softer stance toward Hispanics in this country--whom have settled into our society and lived here for decades. They must remember that G.W. Bush won the Hispanic vote during both of his terms--and the right wing of the republican party--has chased them to the other side of the isle.

    This is how the worst President with the worst economic record in this nations history got reelected in this country. Barack Obama for another 4 MISERABLE years is what we get.

    This election was over as soon as those morons put Romney on the ticket. Simple as that.

    Republicans didn't focus on it. The media and the Leftist demagoguery did.

    Now, if you are saying that Republicans should abandon social issues while Democrats continue to run 100% on social issues, I would say you really don't get it.

    I am not sure I agree. It seems to me that we have to focus on the moral issues because the degeneration of the culture is one of our biggest challenges.

    But we need to pursuade people to change their lives outside of the government. We can't use government to force change in their lives, because it wont happen.

    First of all, nobody wants to deport Hispanics, we want to deport illegals who just happen to be of all races and ethnicities the same as Americans. I do not believe in rewarding law breakers and that's what "amnesty for illegals" amounts to, rewarding those who broke the law while slapping the faces of those who were stupid enough to follow our laws to get here and worse those who didn't break our laws when they were denied entry and stayed out even when they had family here they would like to visit.

    I don't care about the rest of your post but tell the truth about the illegals...don't try to gloss over it and cry about how people who broke into our country are being treated unfairly. If someone broke into your home and you didn't find them for 10 years, do you think they have a right to stay in your home????

    Calling an illegal alien and undocumented immigrant is like calling a house burglar and uninvited guest.

    I concur. Morality is the sounding board backbone of our nation. We must not surrender our moral equilibrium in appeasement of practitioners of certain behaviors.
