Single Women ♥ Obama

November 7, 2012


ALL their “WE LOVE YOU, WOMEN” slobbering did almost nothing for the GOP yesterday. The party lost female voters once again by a large margin. According to Politico:

After all the discussion of Obama’s play for women — and his effort to make Romney appear extreme on women’s issues — the president won among female voters by 12 points. He took 55 percent of the demographic, compared with 43 percent for Romney — not far off from 2008, when he won women by 13 points.

In particular, the president won big among unmarried women, who backed the president by a whopping 38 points, 68 percent to 30 percent.

That’s at least partly because in the modern world, a significant minority of single woman are married to the state.

The End of European America

November 7, 2012


JOURDAN at the Conservative Kitchen Table writes:

Election Night was intensely painful for me.  It is one thing to know in advance what will happen, it is another thing altogether to watch it unfold.  As I received confirmation after confirmation that the long-awaited demographic turn in the road had definitively arrived, I found myself fighting against realizing exactly what that means, in all its likely effects.

Solzhenitsyn on America’s Decline

November 7, 2012


IN his well-known address at Harvard in 1978, Alexander Solzhenitsyn made a number of observations relevant to today. He ended his speech with these words:

I am not examining here the case of a world war disaster and the changes which it would produce in society. As long as we wake up every morning under a peaceful sun, we have to lead an everyday life. There is a disaster, however, which has already been under way for quite some time. I am referring to the calamity of a despiritualized and irreligious humanistic consciousness.

To such consciousness, man is the touchstone in judging and evaluating everything on earth. Imperfect man, who is never free of pride, self-interest, envy, vanity, and dozens of other defects. We are now experiencing the consequences of mistakes which had not been noticed at the beginning of the journey. Read More »


Nullification Victories

November 7, 2012


HERE’S some good news. Three states, Wyoming, Montana and Alabama, approved measures to nullify Obamacare. According to the Tenth Amendment Center:

Wyoming voters passed a health care freedom amendment to the Declaration of Rights in the state constitution.

The Wyoming Constitution now guarantees citizens of the state the right to make their own healthcare decisions with minimal governmental interference.

Article 1, Section 38 – Right of Health Care Access

(a) Each competent adult shall have the right to make his or her own health care decisions. The parent, guardian or legal representative of any other natural person shall have the right to make health care decisions for that person. Read More »


Same Sex “Marriage” Comes to Maryland and Maine

November 7, 2012


HERE’S the Wall Street Journal’s report on the approval of same sex union measures by narrow majorities in two states. These represent the first successful ballot initiatives for homosexual “marriage” in the country. Results for Washington are still not in. Minnesota voters declined to approve a constitutional amendment for traditional marriage.

Brian Brown, of the National Organization for Marriage, said, “The only thing this says is that in deep blue states, gay-marriage advocates can win—barely.”

The largest base of support in Maryland was among voters under the age of 29 — in other words, among the self-centered young who have not raised children and are relatively indifferent to their needs.


A Lamentation

November 7, 2012


N.W. writes:

My country where is she?
Buried by diversity, bled dry by thieves.
Our fathers would have cried,
To see the day she died,
As I flee to the mountains high,
I weep for thee.
