Reports from the Field

November 4, 1924. Washington, D.C., or vicinity. "In line to vote."

First Election Day Reports from Citizen Journalists

Second Election Reports from Citizen Journalists, As Polls Open

Third Election Reports from Citizen Journalists: GOP Surge

We have been overwhelmed by your response--there are literally hundreds more reports--we are trying to post as many as possible. The overall feeling is that Republicans are turning out in force--and voters feel like they are part of something big, something historic and wonderful.

Drudge: everyone/everything, including a voter who threatened a poll watcher with a gun, a guy in a monkey suit, an Obama mural, an Obama wall poster, an election judge wearing an Obama hat and UN observers were allowed inside voting precincts today - but a girl wearing an MIT t-shirt was not. Updates: the mural was ordered covered by a judge, Detroit 911 refused to respond to the poll watchers emergency call and the UN observers are shocked at America's "trust based" (no voter i.d.) system.

No matter how we pray, sometimes the answer is what we need, occasionally what we deserve. I think that how it ends. Maybe Barnhardt was right in what she said a couple of days ago.

Certainly, to whom much is given, of them much is required -- not in the stupid socialist mangling of that truth, but in the sense that we should be better people than we are. Obama is the poster boy for that. He has been given a smooth path and open doors all his life, and he is an ingrate, as are, apparently, a lot more people than I would have believed earlier today.

I have studiously avoided hyperbole and sensationalism in my life both physically and spiritually, so I say this with much forethought and deep seriousness.

We have finally reached a tipping point. I am not sure that this country will recover in my lifetime. I despair for my children.

God help us.

I hate to say, "I told you so!"

Skorpion, so do I. As I predicted months ago, the GOP has taken Jesusland by a landslide - and lost America. That's what happens when you choose a plutocratic Mormon zealot as your candidate.

No Fletch, it is what happens when your party forsakes its beliefs and stands for nothing more than being reelected. The Republican party will be punished. They may have the House, but I don't see them having much backbone against the Democratic machine, which has the White House, the Senate, the Press, Academia and the Entertainment industry. What do conservatives have? What do the pious have? Mega churches? Good luck with that.

It isn't the Republicans. They are allowed to be what they are... politicians. I'd just prefer they were the moderates they ought to be. Wouldn't they have been considered liberal? or progressives at the time of the Civil War? The problem is not the Republican Party. The problem is the Democrat machine and the idiots who vote them in. The mobs: the union thugs, the bitter blacks, the oh so liberated "sluts", the misguided Earth worshippers, the entitlement junkies... and all the others Jewel named. Mega churches aren't the problem and neither are the Mormons. Or the evangelicals or the conservative Jews. The problem is the Godless Left. The culture of corruption and death. They have always been the problem. They always will be the problem.

Any party more right of the Republicans - or more libertarian - will only take votes from the Republicans because half the voting population (give or take a few dead, multiple, illegal, fictional voters) is stuck on stupid. For a variety of reasons: entitlement greed, mental disorders, REVENGE, Palinoia... Am I the only one here who saw the first debate??? Obama is not "brilliant" off teleprompter.
