Four million Hispanic vote discrepancy
Good Evening Mr. Sorchych,
Well, I'm officially obsessed with figuring out how Romney lost. I did some research and found some interesting numbers. According to 2010 census numbers and the percentage of votes that each candidate received, there were 4 MILLION more Hispanic votes cast than there were Hispanic registered voters. Now I know not everyone answers the census and these are numbers from 2010 but a 4 million person discrepancy is pretty large. This would have definitely changed the outcome of the election.
These are numbers from our government. They can be verified through the U.S. Census Bureau. I Googled election results and how many Hispanic voters are registered. The election results were deemed official and the Huffington Post provided the number of Hispanic registered voters.
I honestly don't understand how our country can survive the next four years.
Thank you for the proposition and candidate summary you published a few weeks ago. It helped to clarify some gray areas for me and several of my friends and family.
At least we have Sheriff Joe to watch our backs over the next few years. He's the only thing saving Arizona from a complete Democratic takeover.
Have a good week!
Achtung, Comrade Don
Celebrating the re-election – How can so many people be so freakin’ stupid?

Election Day 2012 will go down in history as "Black Tuesday."
This is the first time since FDR that Americans have elected a President that has failed every meaningful metric of the office. In the short-term we need to work to control local and state offices. In the long-term we will need to fight harder and smarter going forward.
Dear Obama Supporters: A Letter from an Anarchist
Congratulations. Your preferred candidate won a second term as president. I'm sure y'all are too busy dancing in the streets and smilecrying and stuff to be on the Internet right now, but this will be here when all that is done.
Now that Obama has got himself a second term, you and I need to have a chat. I just have a couple questions I need to ask, and then you can be on your merry Democrat way.
1. Now that this is no longer an "election year," will you now pay attention to the drone strikes, kill lists, allowance of indefinite detention and mass deportation of undocumented immigrants?
2. Now that Obama is safe in the White House until 2016, will you pay attention to the continued incarceration of Private Manning?
3. Now that your dude has won, will you look critically at his connections to the parasitic financial institutions that sent our economy spiraling out of control in 2008?
4. Now that there will never be another Obama campaign, will you protest with us against all of the above?
Or will you stay home, wring your hands and sit there looking worried that your friends won't like you anymore if you speak out against all of these things, things that people in other countries are justifiably mad at? Will you still call people who protest these things impractical, "emotional progressives," or worse?
Will you sit there, pensively waiting for Obama to become the man he promised he would be in 2008?
Here's a hint: he won't.
You don't have to be an anarchist to see that the man you elected, while ostensibly "better" in a couple of arguably important ways than the man he was running against, is still no one to write home about.
The "lesser evil" is still evil.
All we are asking is that you remove your head from your collective behind and, at the very least, help us make sure that his evil doesn't grow.
You don't need Adbusters to tell you to take to the streets. Just do it.

Doing the same thing, expecting different results
If you are despondent that your candidate did not win, let me assure you it matters not a whit. For over a half century, Democrats and Republicans have taken turns at presiding over the economy, guiding and managing our national debt, deficit and social programs to the brink of bankruptcy. We have spent many decades switching seats but changing nothing. Both parties continue to debate how to spend more money we don’t have and matters that are trivial in comparison to the fiscal crisis we face. We have been doing the same thing, that is, voting for one or the other expecting different results, a process Albert Einstein called “insanity.”
Did you think this election would be different? Check your premise. Both parties endorse the core principle of a powerful beneficent government and supported TARP, bailouts for the auto industry, banks, etc. Few politicians speak of solutions and even fewer about our debt crisis, impending bankruptcy of Social Security and Medicare and unsustainable social welfare programs. There’s no way to increase taxes to the degree necessary to cover those benefits without draining capital from the economy and sharply reducing the middle class standard of living. There aren’t enough taxes to raise from the wealthy and businesses to deal with what we face and no one is talking about scaling back the size of government in order to live within our means. Americans owe a sum of money we can never – ever – repay.
The results of this election ensure that the size of government and our debt will continue to grow and we will again be lulled into a false sense of security and apathy. As a nation, we are inexorably moving towards an illusory utopia of social justice and equal outcomes for all … that is until we run out of other people's money.

Pass legislation for the Agent Orange Equity Act
With the elections over, the new Congress and Senate will have their first session in early 2013. They will be faced with many issues, some old, some new. It is time for the new Congress and Senate to put aside politics and become legislators. There are still two major Bills in committee of interest to Vietnam veterans, House Bill HR-3612 and Senate Bill S.1629. These Bills are to restore VA benefits for Agent Orange exposure during the Vietnam War.
The present Congress and Senate still have time to act upon these Bills before January 2013. These Bills must come out of committee and go to the floor of both houses. I ask the American people to urge our legislators to act on these Bills. The Vietnam veterans who are sick from Agent Orange Dioxin exposure need these Bills passed into law by our present legislators before the new legislators take office. With a new legislative assembly, we advocates for Vietnam veterans will have to start over again. This means longer delay for veterans VA approval. Thousands of Vietnam veterans won't be approved by the VA because they did not have boots on ground, even though they were awarded the Vietnam Service Medal. Many Sailors, Airmen and Fleet Marines who served during that war are sick from exposure to the deadly herbicide. With the passage of the aforementioned Bills, these members of the Armed Forces will receive equality for VA benefits.

The unthinkable happened election night – America’s prosperity will suffer through four more years with the same untenable future – uncertainty, unpredictability, and more government interference. And I was counting on consistency to lead the way to a better economic environment, and a stronger free-market enterprise.
We’re not going to see the country come together with this President. He is an extreme liberal ideologist. Unfortunately the American people will see further erosion of our basic principles and core values. There will be many recess appointments and nominations without confirmation. Political battles will be fought over the next four years, with the nomination of U.S. Supreme Court Judges being the most significant one. President Obama will tip the scale of justice to a liberal ideological court, unraveling the moral fiber of the country.
And let us not forget the showdown between Congress and the President last year over whether to raise the debt ceiling or not. Where did that take us? Oh yes, forming the super committee.
These members only deferred the debt crisis. And remember that Congress included a provision in the debt-ceiling legislation that stipulated an automatic series of cuts over nine years that would total $1.2 trillion if the super committee failed. Well it failed, and now we are in the sequester bubble, which will take effect on Jan. 2, 2013 if Congress does not act now. Ten percent cuts across-the-board will be seen next year. With a lame duck, divided Congress and extremely liberal President, we will probably see Act II, and the stock market responding negatively.
The Romney-Ryan ticket was America’s future. Too bad the opposition was so politically effective, successfully framing Romney as the “rich man’s president,” and creating the “class warfare.”
Regarding the U.S. election …
The Republicans did not lose the U.S. election because of constituencies or demographics. Neither is Barack Obama the problem.
We are! Abortion is. Public schools are. A rotting pop culture is. Modernism in the Catholic Church is. Divorce and homosexual "marriage" are. Obama has been reelected simply because America, like any nation, will always only get the leaders she deserves. We told God to go to hell a long time ago, and God is now allowing us to see what life is like without Him.
America is a Christian nation, and our help is in the name of the Lord - not electoral politics. Out of fear and sheer desperation, most Americans threw their hats in the ring for a Mormon, big government-backing, sometimes pro-life, moderately pro-gay rights candidate. Even by John F. Kennedy's standards, Mitt Romney is a rabid liberal who would not have altered the course for America.
We need something more. Much more! 2000 years ago a lone soldier with his metaphorical armor shining beneath the moon, galloped through the land. Where hooves thunder, the ground became alive with sprouts and tendrils, and bare trees started to bud, and grasses to blossom, the power of nature exploding into life. This soldier was able to rally the people to rediscover what is best in men. Today we need that soldier once more to inspire the masses to defend what was, and the dream of what could be once more.

What next? The Santa Claus Party?
Every time the Republicans take a hit on an election, the Liberal operatives come out in droves to tell them that they should morph into the" Democrat" model and lose their brand identity. The problem is two fold. One: why would anyone give up their core beliefs on a whim? Two: "Does Macy's tell Gimbals?" Even if the Republicans stooped to take the bait, don't you think that the "Democrats" would play an ever more generous Santa Claus? Statistically "Republicans" lose when they don't have basic American Apple Pie beliefs. Rhino's, unlike the Tea Party movement are part of the problem.
I voted for Ralph Nader in 2008 because Obama said he was against MANDATORY HEALTH INSURANCE and both McCain and Barack Hussein Obama II voted for the bailouts. They were both part of today's economic disaster! If the Republican's compromise their values they might as well not exist. If America is going to turn into the kind of country our forefathers fled from so be it. But I and millions of others won't be part of a conscious sell out of our God given rights for a bribe or promise of any kind of reward. Too much blood has already been shed to "protect and defend" the US Constitution to allow the likes of Obama or anyone else to marginalize it. If Obama wants us to vote for revenge, then so we will.
