Yesterday was not a surrender, it was a wake-up call. In today’s show I analyze what happened and assess what we need to do now. As Independent Conservatives the time is to become even more active, doubling-down on our commitment to the future. 2014 is two short years away and in today’s program I lay out the reality of the situation and what we can, and are, going to do about! Thanks everyone :)

    Brava and many thanks, Tammy, for today’s show. Just what we all needed, after last night. And so, a new day/new era begins, to “fight the good fight.”

  2. Maynard says:

    Yes, other than Tammy, I am unplugged today. I barely slept last night; too agitated. Tuning in the media is more than I can bear.

  3. ffigtree says:

    Pretty much unplugged today too. My mind is just spinning. Today’s podcast was very good Tammy ~ sharing! Thank you for having chat open through all this. It has been very therapeutic :)

    I don’t know what is worse — being hime and totally without power for 7 days or going back to work and not having internet access because of SANDY. It’s been frustrating,but glad I am able to get the podcasts. We are the Tammy Army and surrender is not an option. We can lean on each other when times are rough, and then, on to the next battle.
    No one said it would be easy, but we are tough.

    Wow! Thanks Tammy- I NEEDED THAT :) I have been “tuned out” since around 9pm last night. No Newspaper- radio- not even FOX! I had to work today which was a slight distraction. Luckily, every one I was flying with today was a Romney supporter so we licked each others wounds on the way to LA… The best part of my day was listening to this podcast and stuffing an In-N-Out Burger down my depressed pie hole? Excellent show, I feel so much better after hearing it. Thanking God for your safety last night and all you do. Jeffrey

    Hmmm…I read this and am trying to decide whether or not I want to fight this fight or if it is even worth fighting for?

    I have come to realize:

    -That the majority of my gender is comfortable having Sandra Fluke as their spokesperson.
    -That my gender is now comfortable being defined by 2 issues: abortion and now, new to 2012, contraception (had no idea it was ever at risk).
    -That “ladyparts” are more important than “ladysmarts”.
    -That the terms “ladyparts” and “ladysmarts” are now apart of our lexicon.
    -That handouts are more important than hand-ups.
    -That my hard work means nothing except what someone else can purchase with it.
    -That our brethren in Florida prefer to vote into office a complete and utter fool like Grayson while ousting a courageous military hero like West.
    -That ‘fair share’ has more value than ‘fair shake’
    -That lies are more easily perceived and believed than the truth.

    I could go on and on. I stated this earlier – our country is not in the same place it was 10, 20 or more years ago….and I don’t think we are ever going to return to that place – the shining City on the hill or morning in America. The ‘mind-set’ or culture has changed.

    Young folks today, that will be making decisions for us folks as we get older, have no respect for themselves much less anyone else. We are in a throw away society – including our unborn. We don’t view one another as human. I fear this election has solidified this ‘group-think’.

    As I watched over half of the electorate voting for more, more, more of the same…I became very pessimistic for our future. I don’t think a more conservative candidate would have knocked it the other way. I think he (DB) would have won even greater – with a true mandate.

    So I am asked to fight – for who and what? I have been fighting along with a lot of you for the past 4 years. But the majority of our country does not wish to fight – “they” like the new status quo. I’m not sure I want to fight for people that are too damn stupid to fight for themselves – I mean, my God, that would mean we are doing everything for “them” – paying for “their” crap, thinking for “them” plus fighting for “their” future. We are doing everything for “them” except wipe their ass. “They” are fighting against us for a different future – their side has the numbers. Unless you can get the TPTB in congress to either take their stuff away and let them riot, or just let them have all they want and the country melts down from the financial burden – things will never change.

    So you are no longer my fellow citizens – you are now my comrades…Welcome to the new United Socialist States of America. We are all equal. Work hard for the common good so we may all enjoy the fruits of your labor.

      I would just ask, what do you think Breitbart’s reaction to last night would be? Crying in his soup? Quitting? I don’t think so. If there was ever a time meant for our commitment, *this is it.* We all should do what we need to but the bottom line is, if you surrender now all that we’ve done what *and all those who came before us* have done, is for naught. This is exactly the time requiring of our commitment, I hope you come to see that :)

    • Gregger71 says:

      Demfool- I understand and appreciate your honesty. You are not the only who feels this way.

      This has been a tough year that ended with great disappointment. Not only did the majority of American voters choose to slit our country’s throat by electing BO again, but I also lost one of my best friends of 8 years after he accused me of being a self-hating fag for supporting Romney.

      We are worn out now, but I bet you and I will be back soon ready to fight again. I’m giving up politics for awhile to focus on other important things. Perhaps you should do the same. Don’t retreat, but reload. Right?

      Tammy- what would Breitbart be doing? Probably annoying me with retweets of profanity-laced insults from the left. Why do many popular conservatives do this? It accomplishes nothing.

  7. ashleymatt says:

    I don’t blame Romney for this, but the Republican establishment treated this like the Democrats did: just another election, rather than the mortal choice for America.

    I am disgusted about last night, even if Romney had won, why is an election against a Nihilist that close? I am concerned the scales have tipped, that the consumer class who normally wouldn’t even know what day Election Day was have now been reached through Obama’s perfect interface of entertainment, social media, and politics and have realized that they can not only vote for giggles and attention but can also vote themselves benefits at the expense of “the rich.” They’ve “expanded the electorate” alright; it’s not even recognizable.

    I am wondering what the point of all this was. What was the point of our founders leaving Europe to establish the only country in history based on freedom (you know, that American exceptionalism that Obama doesn’t believe in)? What was the point of our ancestors thriving here after escaping from all other continents if we are just going to become like all those other continents?

    Forward into the long, slow decline.

    P.S. To all the members of the voluntarily-state-run media and especially to the members of teacher’s unions, I despise you. I know how much pleasure you’ve taken in the past few decades of poisoning citizens’ minds. I hope you’re happy with yourselves; you’ve won. A contingent of Americans now wants a provider and king. They’ll get one.

    • Sharkbait says:

      Good point. We held a referendum on national bankruptcy. The 51 percent vote means imminent catastrophe, but if “only” 49 percent had voted in favor we would have had a serious problem.

      51 percent of the electorate either want a Greece style economic collapse or didn’t care enough to cast an informed ballot. Either reason means that our fragile experiment in representative self-government is self-destructing.

  8. sandyl says:

    Tammy I just wanted mention that in your discussion of last nights results you didn’t mention that Nebraska replaced democrat Ben Nelson, not with Bob Kerrey, but with Deb Fischer. Sarah Palin endorsed tea party republican. We gave all our 5 electoral votes to Romney unlike 2008 when we had to give DB one. I am sickened about the results, but it is heartening to me to know that Ne did the right thing last nite.

  9. TheGreenHornet says:

    Tammy, after listening to your story about the intruder, you might want to consider a home camera servailance system. They are not too expensive. They have do it yourself systems at Sam’s Club and Costco. There are wireless systems also. Put a camera at each entrance. I have a system of my own, and can view it over my smart phone.

  10. annagreye says:

    Tuesday was a wake up call alright. It should let the GOP establishment know that they are totally out of touch. But I don’t think the answer lies in thinking the GOP should have put forth a more socially conservative message or optics. I think the GOP needs a broader tent socially (on issues like abortion and contraception, for example). You’re screaming, I can hear you, but we have to take abortion and gay rights and contraception off the front burner of what it is to be a Republican and accept these issues for what they are: religious issues, religious dictates. Wasn’t our great country founded on the separation of Church and State? So we can be pro-life and still allow for GOP candidates in national races to have differing views. After all, a true Repub wouldn’t want the federal government to have a say in this issue one way or the other, so why bring it to the forefront of a national platform?
    We need to re-define ourselves on a national level as opposed to a state level, where we’re doing fine (30 GOP governors)

  11. Sharkbait says:

    Simply stunning: According to exit polls, a large majority preferred Obama on the question of “caring about people like me.”

    In 2008 he threw his own grandmother under the bus for political advantage.

    He left Christopher Stevens, who he knew personally, to die in Benghazi.

    And random people standing in a voting line think he cares about them, and vote accordingly. Unbelievable!

  12. jiaconis says:

    In the final analysis, I have come up with who voted for who. Romney got the American vote. O’Bummer got the Racist vote, The Ignorant Vote, The American Hater Vote, The Parasite Vote and the Socialist/Fascist/Communist Vote…

  13. dennisl59 says:

    FYI: McCain received 59,934,814 votes in 2008 and Romney received 58,122,514. A difference of 1,812,300. So my question is: Why?

    I did not know this, to quote Mooch, This is the first time in lifetime I am ashamed of my fellow Americans, they gave this country up for free stuff, lies, and a snake oil salesman. And to those who had a good last four years, it’s not about you, it about the Nation, furthermore if all you are concerned about is yourself, just think how much better you would have done under a Romney Administration, you should all be ashamed of yourself’s, lets see how good you are doing in four years…fools.
