Seriously, can the Republic survive?
#11
I am kicking myself. Up until the last month I fully believed that Obama would win without a doubt, I had zero faith in the American people. During the last month I let something cloud my judgement and started to feel like there was a chance. Because of that, today I am left feeling let down by my country, uncertain about anything that lies ahead. I do know one thing for certain, if my healthcare premiums go up as predicted due to Obamacare, I will no longer be able to afford them. Looking out on the horizon I have far more to fear than just the thought of losing my guns, my hobby. I am not sure how I am going to continue making ends meet.

And seriously, Obama won all but one county in PA???? That has me scratching my head something fierce.

I honestly felt that the majority of Americans are still center to center-right and would reject higher taxes, debt and ever-expanding government at the expense of individual rights. It seems I'm wrong and the balance has finally tipped in favor of a European-style high tax, big government model.

In their own words, both major candidates were selling expanding government at the expense of individual rights. I think that was part of the problem.

Amnesty will become a reality....and SOON....that's 10-15 Million more Obamaphoners......That will make an insurmountable Welfare Coalition Majority.
Can't emphasize enough how terminal this election was.....there will be no resurrection.

No, the Repubic is dead.

The national demographic now favors those will vote themselves benefits.

It's over. Just a matter of how long it takes.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

I think in the upcoming 4 years, we'll see the rise of a number of militias. Discovery Channel's "Militia Rising" chronicles The Watchmen. I think the goal of the show is to make everyone with an AR or AK look like a lunatic incompetent wannabe soldier douche. I do like some of their ideas, I just hate everyone involved with it.

I'm not talking about taking on the government. No group on the ground is going to be much of a match for armor, artillery, and air strikes. But if you had 40 guys with guns in a pre-fortified location, you might stand a chance against the first wave of everyone running from the cities and wanting what you've prepared.

Also, you can recruit people with various skill sets, instead of us all going at it alone. If something happens to me, it'd be nice to have a group that could defend my family, or extract them in a SHTF scenario.

Pooling resources and preps would also be valuable. Keep a couple weeks worth of stuff at the house, but you won't have to worry about moving a ton of ammo and prepped food if your plan isn't to bug-in.

I think the Republic can survive, but it's going to get rough.

Thanks. Google's blue/red map is flawed, or I am somehow viewing it wrong. It was the only map that would load on my Kindle so I was keeping an eye on it all night and not checking other sources.

I think our only shot is John Galt, metaphorically speaking. Painful yes, but once amnesty sets in we are screwed.

This election was a key point in my adult life. I had a few experiences after high school where I can literally feel like something just broke in me, made me become more bitter and apathetic in general. Seeing the slight majority vote solid D for another 4 years even in light of their major fuck ups made me experience that heartache again.

I am glad I still live at home and don't have a family of my own as the pain would probably render me useless. What a sad day...
