Taste their buttery tears, freeper freakout
Saw this spammed on Facebook and it traces back to free republic. Such sweet suffering.
Delusions pasted below...
As the election results pour in tonight, I am confronted with by a period of time in which I must reassess my core values and beliefs, and how they fit into the broader population of the United States.
It is my belief that the Nation is becoming a Humanist Country, where Government is at the Center of Life much as Religion had been in the past. We are becoming more like Sweden or the Nordic countries rather than like the Southern EU nations of Greece, Italy or Spain. The difference between a social democracy and a Humanist Country is at its core one of financial ability to maintain - the Nordic nations have oil, gas and low populations and the South has more people than they can support.
My basis for these thoughts are that I have lived in a state of mind in which I choose to be conservative, religious, and tried to be the best person I could, all the while teaching my children to work hard and be self-reliant.
But as the election results are coming in evidence to the contrary confronts me that many more Americans are not conservative.
The state of American is that just over one-half of the citizens are happy with the Democrats while the conservative half like myself felt he was destruction to the Nation on so many levels.
Tonight I must finally admit that Democrats and liberals have achieved their goals of moving the County into a social democracy like those in Europe; tonight is 1970 in Europe and in 50 years the USA will be in the same dire straights as Europe.
Americans like myself will no longer take the risks or work harder than the laziest in each of our work environments and all seek the same diminishing rewards. Having lived in Europe and experienced the their culture in The Netherlands and Belgium, all incentive to produce has been breed out of the population.
So tonight I must accept that the Country is not going to collapse nor is it going to change much from today for that matter. Tomorrow I will be faced with walking the social plank off the Ship into the water or tread lightly so as not to offend the Humanists, the gays, the anti-Christians, the Latinos, Blacks, women, etc.
Tonight I go to sleep knowing my way of life is in the last generation where a majority once worked hard and individuals were important; tomorrow I embrace the new culture where the intolerant are somehow the norm and to live counter to their culture is being intolerant - I for one do not think I can tolerate this new status quo but will silently accept what our schools and taxes have done to society.

10. Welcome to DU, sweetpea7788!
Glad you're here! These poor saps are suffering some severe indigestion. They've been swallowing kkkarl rove alternate reality bullshit for far too long. They believed it was their night and they were gonna send that annoying, unwanted upstart back to Chicago. Well, they've been had. It's apparently rove who made that statement back a decade ago when the duhbya era was in full "flower" and the statement was made "we create our own reality." And it continued (paraphrasing) "and we act on that reality. And you all watch and take careful note and then we act again. And you are left to study what we do." FUCKER.
He helped make Pox Noise even more of a laughingstock last night than ever before. A new low. Made their little cutie-pie megyn kelly stride over to the company researchers to interrogate them about the numbers they were coming up with - that were showing Obama winning, contrary to the gospel of rove. HAH. Held up the whole works for about an hour or so.

6. I know!
Like how was Romney going to change that? Someone was telling me how Romney had business credentials. He was adept at buying up companies to dismantle. He's like a ship breaker. Does this imply he knows anything about putting them together? Hell, which states are we going to sell off to balance the budget?
Frankly, governing doesn't have much to do with running a business at all. A business' goal is to cut costs and offload as much risk onto everyone else as possible, maximize shareholder wealth. They have no other fiduciary responsibility. Businesses have no financial incentive to be good stewards. Giving back more than they take makes them suckers. Businesses have no greater obligation to anyone beyond the shareholders.
I think that's a terrible example to follow. Government is all about social responsibility and about the greater good. If it isn't then we're talking about some sort of objectivist hellscape. If anything, a government would bear more relation to some sort of non-profit whose expressed goals are not wealth maximization.

8. "the Nordic nations have oil, gas...". No, only Norway does. Sweden, Finland and Denmark do fine
without oil and gas.
"We are becoming more like Sweden or the Nordic countries..." I wish that were true, but that 'reality' only exists in the minds of freepers.
"... as the election results are coming in evidence to the contrary confronts me that many more Americans are not conservative." Agreed. Ahhh, finding some common ground with a freeper.
"... I must finally admit that Democrats and liberals have achieved their goals of moving the County into a social democracy like those in Europe ..." Again, but that it were true. It is a step in the right direction but we have a long, long way to go.

My standard reply to screeching conservatives going on about the librul socialist keyan -- "Please, I wish he were as liberal as you think he is."
Let's get Groucho and John together and have ourselves a Marxist-Lennonist utopia.
