I hate losing

I am writing this post on Nov. 6th as the results of the election are coming in, I will not post it until later.  I am seeing my man Mitt getting beat. He fought a good fight, the election was pretty close for awhile, but it seems we will lose. (now that is HAS LOST)

I am not a sore loser, well not too sore. I do not think our country will go down the drain either way. WE will go further in debt, I have no doubt, but we will survive.  This is a great country. I do not agree with the presidents policies of ‘Share the wealth’. The wealthy people I have known have shared their wealth. I know that Bill Gates pays lawyers to  give millions upon millions away every year. When ‘Share the Wealth’ is used by a politician, they mean forced by the government to share the wealth, that is a horse of a different story. Now I am off my soap box.

America is a great country. Our constitution has held together over 200 years, and it will continue so. We are going to have many tough years if congress does what is right. If they decide to face the music deal with the deficit, and not kick the can on down the road, you can bet on it, but we will survive.

BRboomer said, “TGIO”(Thank God It’s Over). We may go into a depression just because no election money is being spent. These guys (all of the politicians) spent over 6 BILLION to win or lose an office that pays less than $400K a year.

Ken said it well, “Deal with it!”

I hope congress will cooperate where the cooperation is reasonable, but no president needs a group of yes men in congress, and the American people sure do not.

Now that said, I guess we get back to doing what I do best, stay retired.

Thanks for reading this mess.

PS:

Twould be nice if our best and brightest always ran for public office, and won.

I'm with the Boomer. I'm glad it is over. We all need to remember that whoever is President, we have a great country and should end divisions and work together to keep us great. The faint sunshine here today is barely enough to warm us up but at least the frost melted away. We are to warm up for the weekend for a little Indian Summer weather. Then back to cold. Hoping you all have a great Thursday!

I feel sad that we have so many so called American's that continue to choose breaking away from our Constitution. But I recall the Bible verse that we should not put our trust in man ... but to hold on to the Word of God.

Thanks for the shout out. See, people with differences of some opinions can get along civility and be friends. Lets hope that congress can do the same.

Sometimes life tosses us a hard pill to swallow. We will go on; but seriously, I hope that President Obama meant what he said, "that this election was a learning process" for him. I hope he takes heed to what is being said and can truly follow through with all the promises. They are saying by the 2016 election ~ if the spending continues the next president will be facing a 22 TRILLION dollar deficit! How are you suppose to pull yourself up by the boot straps and get out from under that without stepping on some toes?? What are we going to do now when China comes a knocking collecting on it's loan? ANXIOUSLY awaiting to see what happens next! Bring it on Mr. President!

I didn't want either one of them, buuuuttt...I think it is important to move on, & show some respect.

A great mean to measure time and life indeed. Yes, all of a sudden, life seems to have become so much different, than the way I used to know it.

Please have you all a good Friday.

I agree with you. What I don't think people see or care to see - is that the America that we once had - is going to be changed. Sandie

I wasn't for either canidate but I think it is a shame that the respect for the office of President Of The United States Of America has been lost.

I was disappointed, but I was kind of expecting it. I was hoping against all hope that Romney could pull off a win,but that was not to be. I do agree with you, Jack, they all got to start working together to get some good things going for our country and get it moving in the right direction. I just found out today the account I type on is sending a lot of their work global (to India no doubt) thus potentially reducing the work force here. I've said it before and I'll say it again, we need to stop giving our jobs away to other countries. (I think I'm safe, no talk about cuts, but when the work starts going global, not a good sign)

I am depressed over the out come although I had my hopes up. But both my daughter's voted for Obama. Where did I go wrong? I think I shouldn't have brought them up to have minds of their own!!

As you know, «Louis» is stunned by the election results... He just can't believe that the GOP wasn't able to turn out enough voters to defeat the Marxist...
