Obama Wins Another Term

A Human Rights Reporter's thoughts on Election Night 2012

Obama and Romney
Obama and Romney

(SACRAMENTO, CA) - As children we learn that taking more than your share is a 'bad' thing because it limits others. As adults we discover that many believe it is all about possession and greed, and 'he who dies with the most toys wins'.

We are told lying is wrong and that any form of violence has negative consequences. Then we grow up and discover that our government's leaders lie through their teeth to us in order to start wars and are never taken to task for their crimes.

We are told, 'hands are not for hurting'. But the truth is that the second your child turns 18, or 17 with parental permission, they can enlist in the military, be trained to kill, and go to war and kill people and possibly be killed. The wars overseas are so real and disastrous... they never should have happened.

The U.S. has wars in store for other parts of the world too. The aggression the nation is showing to its primary investor, China, is certainly on the radar. American politicians like to wage war and we need to put an end to their ways.

It is hard when we live in a country that brokers death and is guided by a government that believes it is OK to kill by the million. When it is learned that there was no evidence or justification for the violence, such as in Iraq, there is no remorse.

Barack Obama He sold his people's soul under the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) which allows Americans to be arrested and detained indefinitely without charges. Romney hails from a gay-bashing right-wing religion that didn't allow Black people to serve in higher echelons until the late 1970's; whose founder taught his Mormon followers that African-Americans were Black because they were bad and being punished by God.

Yup, that's America, a place nearing the end of the line it seems, at this moment the results are split down the middle, 163 to 163 electorate votes, it is incredible.

Americans, write to your political reps:

Find Your Representative - U.S. House of Representatives

Contact US Senators - U.S. Senate

FUN FACT: Obama Lost in Every State with a Voter Photo-ID Law, except NH-- Was the election stolen? Remember all those lawsuits by Democrats demanding that any voter identification laws be repealed? Well, now we know why they filed them. They needed to steal the vote in certain key states so that Obama could be reelected. Curiously, Obama lost in every state that requires a photo ID to be produced before voting. A list of closely contested state elections with no voter ID, which narrowly went to Obama include: Minnesota (10), Iowa (6), Wisconsin (10), Nevada (6), Colorado (9), New Mexico (5) and Pennsylvania (20). This amounts to a total of 66 electoral votes. When added to Romney’s total of 205 electoral votes, that would give Romney 271 electoral votes, enough votes to win even without Ohio or Florida. Romney also likely had the states of Florida and Ohio stolen from him, which don’t require photo IDs. Ohio requires a non-photo ID. Would a library card do? Florida “requests” a photo ID, but doesn’t require it. So what happens if they request a photo ID and the illegal alien Haitian doesn’t have one? Do they just count the vote anyway? 99% “turnout” in Philly. And you wonder WHY Dems are against photo ID? Many of these political blue areas in the above states had more voters than there were registered to vote. In Ohio, nearly 20% more new voters in democratic areas than in 2008. We have had a major fraud perpertrated on us by some criminals, absolute anti-American grifters. So you libs think you're going to get a fair shake from criminal grifters? We will see, and enjoy the wait for medical services and enjoy the food lines that are coming very soon. Forget about available fuel...

Anonymous as you wrote your uncle is mentally handicapped, so blaming him for his voting blunder is not really his fault. So if you have the discretionary income, continue the help is what I would do. Who was the democrats' big hero this year, their big gun? Bill Clinton. A woman attacking, lying, corrupt, disgraced disbarred perjurer who never got near 50% of the vote when he ran for president. Yet he was their funny old respected distinguished statesman. And where is George W Bush? No republican would dare go near him. We allow the fantasy that he caused a disaster after Katrina. Look at the far worse scenario in the northeast, and the dems are all backslapping each other for their expertise. My God, look at the real time footage of these poor storm victims. We allow Obama to blame "conservatives" again and again for the economy- and "they" is also George W Bush, not the real culprits, leftist degenerates. AND-the MSM have also allowed Hilary Clinton to be in line for the presidency in 2016. Hilary Clinton, an evil lying woman, corrupt, lying she-witch who is every bit the creep her husband is. Obama does not like most people, and only uses those that looked like his maternal-side folks, whom I believe he hates with the same passion as his late Marxist father also did. Expect some serious blowback, and an impeachment process for the Libya cover-up, a cover-up that is truely felonious. Recall Nixon was gone two years after his re-election, and the Libya criminal incompetence is a far worse cover-up. American heroes were slaughtered. Look at the handful of people who own the majority of the media. The ancients warned us about this evil DNA thousands of years ago. Wake up! Buying into the stereotypes the Marxists have done to Conservatives simply reflects an intellectual laziness, which could prove to be one's demise.

Editor: Blah blah blah....

Anonymous: You ask for suggestions. Here's mine: keep on voting Republican. It may take some time, but eventually they'll form the Administration, your uncle will be cut off altogether, except for a coupon for Ryancare, and that should end your humanitarian problem.

I have an uncle in Wisconsin. He's slightly mentally handicapped and lives in subsidized housing because of his income level. In tribute to my Grandma (who's been gone a number of years and of whom I still miss), I send my uncle a check every month. The check is only $300.00. I believe he uses it for living expenses that aren't covered by assistance. I rarely get an acknowledgement/thank you from him - unless of course, I'm late in mailing it out. My uncle voted for Obama. Normally, I say "Live and let live" and let it go at that. But I am thinking about telling him that effective 1/01/13, that I'm cutting his monthly check from $300.00 to $150.00 because of the impending increase in taxes that I'll be paying as a result of Barack Obama's policies. Given that my uncle is slightly mentally handicapped, I'm wavering about this. I don't wanna appear like a cad but at the same time, I don't wanna be taken for granted and want him to know that actions have consequences. What would you do?


William Annett November 7, 2012 12:00 pm (Pacific time)

Thank you, Anonymous. I love these commentators who have so much confidence in their opinion that they're shit-scared to put their name on it. The trouble with you Libertarians, and your spiritual leader the perennial bridesmaid Ron Paul, is that, like an elderly spinster, you have all the answers, but nobody ever asked you the questions.


Ralph E. Stone November 7, 2012 10:31 am (Pacific time)

Do you really believe a Romney presidency would be better than an Obama second term? I assume that anonymous is on his way to Canada.


William Annett November 7, 2012 6:27 am (Pacific time)

All very true, Tim.Or as Shakespeare said: "'Tis true, 'tis pity, and pity 'tis, 'tis true." But I think there was a huge 'change' delivered yesterday, which is perhaps more important than what you put so accurately: 52 million people delivered it. Obama didn't win; the American people did, and here's how: In 1787, a new nation was founded by, of and for old rich white guys. Yesterday that was changed for the first time. Almost half of us still voted for an arrogant, dominant, omnipotent white society. But thank God, a majority recognized what is happening, what will ultimately happen in a short few decades: America will be - in fact already is - a nation of minorities. Yesterday, we turned that corner. The truth may be that Obama is scarcely better than Romney, as you say. But cut him some slack, because that isn't as important as the fact that he is a more understanding vessel, through which this nation of federated minorities can forge real change. Obama won't educate us, we will educate him - as we did yesterday. (And I do prefer Michelle over Dolley Madison.) Hell, we might even admit native "Americans" to our group of equal minorities.

Tim King: Thanks Bill!

Well, thets the end for our great Nation. Massive immigration and Amnesty. No jobs, taxes up the roof, our Military turning in to Boyscouts. They will fight Social Justice and Global Warming. Welcome to the Third Word Country of the USA. Israel is doomed, radical Islam is on the rise in the US. Including in the White House. Chaplains and priests will go to prison for not marrying homosexuals. Talk radio will be gone, you say anything against the Administration, you will be arrested. And while this will be going on our naked Marxist Chief is going on vacations with your tax dollars. Oh and don't forget all these fancy dinners and parties. Also payed by your tax dollars. I get sick to my stomach just thinking about the Inaguration, swearing on the Bible to protect the Constitution. That's discusting. Thank you Liberals, you just destroyed the greatest Nation on Earth. And your gun owners out there, it won't be long and they will be gone. Read your History, hitler in 1936, that's how it will go down.
