A Conservative Wonderland Gone Bust

Waiting For End Times In The Land Of Obama

One distraught conservative who seemed to be taking Obama's victory hard shared with me her desire for the world to come to an end via - The Rapture.

That's right, this rather sensitive woman, who I both like and respect a great deal is hoping for the end of the world now that Barack Obama has been elected as President.

I wanted to suggest that maybe in the meantime she could move to Idaho or Alaska, two states that are like Heaven right here on Earth, and are in the solid Red category, but I decided not to suggest that, as I fear she might take my advice - and friends aren't so easily replaced.

Waiting For The Great Depression With Determination

This afternoon I spoke with a real live conservative over some Fox News. He was sharing with me his concern that the economy was on the brink of collapse, but that he didn't feel that the Government should prevent it - for philosophical reasons.

Here he was explaining how he himself is on the brink of financial disaster and that the company he works for is just a shadow of what it was when he started with it years ago, yet he was committed to the idea that the entire U.S. economy should crash - based upon his conservative philosophical convictions.

I smiled, and listened, but I knew I was in the presence of a madman - yet, there are tens of millions of Republicans who are just like him in the U.S.

Thank god they lost the election.

This gentleman thought it was perfectly o.k. that the U.S. auto industry completely crash and burn, and be replaced by the Chinese auto industry, etc.

I thought this was ironic as we were at a local auto dealership at the time - watching Fox News, and sipping on complimentary drinks - with absolutely no one buying any cars.

My 2008 Presidential Election Prediction

First of all - vote - if you are an Obama supporter. If you support McCain, or are undecided then it is perfectly o.k. for you to stay home this time around.

Here's my prediction: Election goes to Obama with 311 electoral votes.

I won't review the solid red or blue states here - just the contentious states.

Obama takes: PA, VA, CO, NV, and OH (just taking PA will win it for Obama).

McCain takes: FL, GA, NC, MO, IN, ND, and MT (although I predict these states will be close).

Essentially, McCain will fail to take the states Bush won with, and Obama will have helped to move several Red states in the Blue state category (possibly for years to come).

I based my decision on the following: Using (I find this the best source) I gave 3/4 of undecided votes to McCain which tosses all tossup states back into the Red category. However, in PA, and OH, the small portion of undecideds who chose not to vote on racial lines, and who will vote for Obama are critically important to my scenario working out.

I simply accepted the argument that most undecideds are white, and will vote along racial lines - which is what the McCain camp is hoping for. McCain, however, has failed to take any of Obama's already decided votes away, and his dirty campaign has failed in this regard.

There you have it. McCain's attempt to scare people away from Obama fails, and not all undecideds vote along racial lines - which ends McCain's long nightmarish bid for the presidency.

My prediction for the future

Also, due to the slow and inexorable changes in the demographic makeup of the nation we will see how the states I listed above as tossups will shift Blue over the next decade. The all while Republican party is in grave trouble unless it becomes more inclusive, and less anti good government.

Where I Might Be Wrong

Florida might just go for Obama, and Ohio might go for McCain. These states are very close, although Obama could still lose both, and handily win the election anyway.

Racism - McCain Campaign Depends Upon It

An interesting article in the New York Times illustrates just how critical racism is the the McCain campaign. Promoting, and using racism is critical to John McCain's chance of winning in the 2008 Presidential Election.

Read how a McCain staffer refers to lower class elderly white Catholics who live in all white neighborhoods:

“I’m spending a lot of time in Philadelphia,” said Robert Gleason, the chairman of the state Republican Party.

“We’re working the Northeast,” he said, referring to a largely white part of the city. “We’ve got values voters up there, Catholics. My people up there say they can carry four to six wards this year, and four years ago, they carried none.”

Presumably that would mean that the wealthier whites in Central Philadelphia who back Barack Obama, and the black voters in Philadelphia too - have no values. I doubt that is what is being said. No, the phrase is code for white racist voters.

Again, from the NYT Article:

“Hillary won some of those white wards by 10 to 1,” said Shanin Specter, son of Senator Arlen Specter, Republican of Pennsylvania, and a lawyer who is steeped in local politics. “Obama is likely to significantly underperform Kerry and Gore in those white row-house wards.”

The state Republican Party has begun running advertisements highlighting Mr. Obama’s ties to the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., his former pastor, which could tap into concerns among white voters.

The Obama campaign is fully aware of the challenge.

“This is a tough ward,” said Paul Rossi, 61, a data processor who lives in the neighborhood and is helping out at an Obama office that opened Saturday not far from Marconi Park. “It’s a matter of convincing people culturally that they won’t be harmed by Obama.”

The Movement

Barack Obama - The Movement

Getting kind of nervous. We're up in the polls in all the key states, and even some no one would have imagined. Still I've seen what happened in 2000, and 2004.

Which is why I keep donating.

Go to to donate, and it's not too late to do some volunteering.

The Fate of the World

Fully one in four registered voters, those who will vote for John McCain, and support George W. Bush, are so willfully uninformed, and so corrupt at heart that they hope and pray for things to stay the same as they have these last eight years.

These folk know they are the real Americans, and the rest of us are supporters of a Muslim terrorist socialist.


This is the state of America today, this November 2nd, 2008.

The rest of McCain's supporters, about half, no longer support Bush, and actually believe that McCain is a better alternative than Obama.


This is the state of America today, this November 2nd, 2008.

The fate of the world hangs in the balance, and it depends upon just a little more than half the electorate in the U.S. to stop the other half from ruining the nation, and harming the world any more than they have already.
