THE ELECTION of 2012 - THE MORNING AFTER. THE COUNTRY MIGHT NEED A PILL!

I don't cover politics much on this blog because others of you do that very well and my own gift set is pretty narrow.  I thought that Romney would be elected, but I also thought that O.J. Simpson was very obviously guilty of murdering his wife and her friend and any jury in the land would see this and find him guilty.  Thirty years ago I was very fond of Ralph Nadar and thought he would someday be elected president and I also liked and voted for Ross Perot as I liked Ron Paul.  At heart I'm an independent, but a registered republican because I want to vote in the primary and there are some break issues like abortion that  will never have my vote.   
 
This is what I, no expert, think. 
 
The republican party that gave us milk toast McCain and gave us Romney is, is, is...  well there is something wrong there.  I want to know why Chris Christie turned against Romney at the 11th hour because I don't care what he says, he is too much of an astute politician not to have calculated his over the top actions.  I personally think he should have run.   I also liked Mike Huckabee.  And much bullied and maligned by the media I preferred Sarah Palin to Romney.  In her sleep with one hand tied behind her back she would be preferable to Obama on his best day.  It also briefly occurred to me that Romney might be in trouble when he chose Ryan as his running mate. Ryan might have been the best choice, but I felt it showed an over confidence on the part of Romney and for a stronger ticket he needed Rubio.  For whatever reasons... by default we had Romney and Obama and the choice and differences were not enough to give us change.   

Not enough attention was paid to the Hispanic base by either candidate.  These families are rightly worried about how they will be harmed in immigration reform and this wasn't addressed.  With the dwindling black population and the rising Hispanic population we have a very different landscape.  Both these populations were not properly or legitimately heard or reached.  As third generation Irish I'm of the opinion that this country has been strengthened by the floods of immigrant populations looking for a better life.  It takes a generation for them to settle in, a generation for them to rise, and then they have always been a force to be reckoned with changing the United States for the better, dislodging the status-quot, and revitalizing the debate with fresh ideas. 
 
Personal thoughts from a person often wrong about politics.  We need a new field of play because it's too much to expect the Republican party to change.  There is nothing wrong with our system.  There is lots wrong with two parties that look too much like one.  There is lots wrong with the Republican Party and the last two moderates they've backed.  We are about to face a decisive and dangerous assault on religious liberty and I'm not sure people will respond as they should.  Once again they failed to give their base a clear and compelling choice.   
 
Everyone should know that we are now in serious trouble with Obama in office.  Romney appeared too much like more of the same; too much like Bush who stood by as our financial system was corrupted by greedy overseas interests, who embroiled us in an unnecessary war, and wall street mafia-like fat cats who partnered with dumbed down elected officials to criminally undermine the middle class via the war waged on property owners, which continues.  The Republican Party, just as they've done in the last three elections, lost vision and misread the symptoms of the times.  If they'd been paying attention they might have listened more to Ron Paul who defined the issues far better than any other candidate.  The Republican Party, once more gave us a player  rather than the reformer and constitutionalist we so needed!   
 
And the thought controlled liberal media; corrupt and having sold out a noble calling.  Don't get me started. 
 
I've been watching for the world political figure who is an empty vessel, already ambulatory possessed, who will suffer a serious head trauma and then miraculously recovers after a huge disaster to shine on the world stage.   My guess is I'll be gone along with countless others of my brothers and sisters, but my friend Ryan McCrillis does not agree.  He's convinced that Christians will go through much of the events described in Revelation.  http://www.alexandraclair.com/2010/03/anti-christ.html
 
Often wrong about politics and signing off...  Maranatha.
