I’m Sorry – So Sorry

My post-election grieving phase – because sometimes my name is more of an adjective than a noun...

I am sorry. To all those I encouraged, sorry I misled you into thinking your efforts would not go unrewarded. And that you could change the course the nation is headed on.

I’m sorry that America spoke loud and clear when they chose welfare over freedom. I’m sorry voter ID was struck down in an effort to sanction voter fraud.

I’m sorry the poor gents in Benghazi had a socialist dictator as their lifeline. May God rest their souls.

I am sorry our children are saddled with an inconceivable debt and sorry that they may never know the America our founding fathers intended. I am sorry our brave men and women of the United States military are nothing more than pawns to our president.

I am sorry we re-elected a community organizer whose first political meeting was held in the living room of the scariest American terrorist of modern times. I am sorry he was re-elected because of voter fraud, entitlements and the color of his skin.

I am sorry that, according to the general under-informed public, celebrity appeal and good public speaking are priority requisites for our commander in chief. I am sorry the Constitution is a worthless document to the leader of the free world.

I am sorry that all of the fears of four more years are now becoming our reality. I am sorry the sound of slamming doors is small businesses across the country closing shop.

I am very sorry that the fate of the ill is at the mercy of Obama’s death panel. I am sorry that the unqualified panel doesn’t hold a medical degree, but rather, are driven by greed and corporate red tape.

I am sorry we won’t be able to afford to drive our cars because of high fuel prices. I am sorry our president doesn’t want us to be self-reliant like we are certainly capable of. I am sorry he is also building a society of citizens that are not self-reliant either. I am sorry the good guy doesn’t always win in the end.

I am sorry that as I pound the keyboard, the anger swells in my gut….

I am sorry my anger is turning into resentment.

And I am sorry to those on the left because that resentment is metastasizing into motivation. And I’m sorry that the motivation is merging with loyalty. Democrats, I am sorry that you think the freedom fighters have been successfully silenced and squandered. I am sorry that you’re foolish enough to think this hushed the silent majority. I am sorry that you’ll soon learn the days of our silence are days gone by.

I am sorry you’ll discover that we’re far from defeated. I am sorry that you’ll learn the sour taste of war at the hands of the patriots ready to die for their country. I am sorry that we will stand shoulder-to-shoulder to defend our rights and preserve our freedoms that our founding father envisioned.

I am sorry you haven’t yet seen the conservative beast unleashed. I am real sorry that you’re about to. I am sorry we will not give up until we are dead and gone. And sorry that, even then, we’ll stand with a God we openly praise, and fight from above.

I am sorry we will not give up the right to defend ourselves, our faith, our family and our freedom, with our lives if necessary. Or that we believe in individual freedoms.

I am sorry that I refuse to be treated like a man. Or that I believe life shouldn’t be seen as a fair game where everyone gets a first-place trophy. I am sorry that as a single mom without child support, I refuse to collect entitlements at the hand of the top 1 percent.

I am sorry that I think women’s liberation movement and feminism screwed it up for freedom-loving females everywhere. I am sorry that I have a problem with my tax dollars going to kill your babies and pay for your whoring. I am sorry that I think government has no place in our home, or that I don’t think the children of undocumented illegals should have the same rights as my American-born daughter. I am sorry that the only issue I am in in agreement with you on this is embryonic stem cell research. I am sorry that you have to murder the unborn – and sorry that I feel we should find triumph in the tragedy by using the pieces to try and save the lives of the terminally ill. I am sorry that I am in agreement with you on just one issue.

I am sorry that a group of people large enough to reelect the scariest president in the nation’s history really exists. I am sorry that there are that many ignorant people in the United States of America. I am sorry that a man that may, or may not, be American-born is the commander in chief of what used to be the free world.

I am sorry the movie 2016 is going to be our autobiography. I am sorry a man named Barrack Hussein Obama is the president of the United States of America. I am terribly sorry he stood at the Tomb of the Unknown on a day meant to honor our fallen heroes without his hand on his heart or so much as a salute.

I am sorry I am angry. What I am not sorry for is the fearless, freedom-fighting friends I have made along the way. Or for the lessons I have learned. I am not sorry that I refuse to be silenced, or that I promise you, on my soul, that the fight has just begun. I am not sorry that we will use the next four horrifying years to get stronger and become a force undefeatable.

I am not apologetic that we are fierce, strong, determined and smart. Or that we will stand shoulder-to-shoulder and walk through the gates of hell defending our freedoms with our life if necessary.

I am sorry you won, but I am not sorry you’re about to learn what it’s like to piss off freedom-loving patriots.

@Sunrocket -- I truly wish I could copy/paste some of the things I've been reading on various message boards since Monday morning -- vile racist stuff and business owners closing down their operations simply because they'd have to give their employees health insurance now (even though they brag of Cadillac plans for themselves). I think it would change your perception that only the liberals are angry.
Bob McBride November 10, 2012 at 11:09 PM
If you're familiar with the history of weblogs, you'd note that this one is truer to the original form than most we find on Patch. I'm not saying that's a good thing....I'm just sayin'.

Anti, ALEC is a special interest-type organization with bi-partisan legislative membership (although there are far more GOP members). I am of the firm belief that the influence of special interest groups, not just ALEC is proving ruinous to our country's financial health and security over the long term. If our nation is to be truly "equal opportunity" that means equal access to legislators, even if the constituent can't offer a book deal or other perks. Obviously that's an idealistic view, but one I believe to be inherently sound.
Sunrocket November 10, 2012 at 11:13 PM
Randy - I'd love to do the same but I'd get banned from commenting. Considering the democrats won I'd think I'd be hearing a little more kumbaya. I honestly know and interact with more liberals than I do conservative's and not one of them has expressed how happy they are he was re-elected. Considering your side presented no other alternative I guess you had not one to vote for. I think the insurance thing will come to rear it's ugly head in just a matter of time. I purchase my own insurance and have for years so I expect a larger premium in time. I'm self employed in an industry that has managed to whether the recession so I am not concerned about losing my job. I know quite a few liberals with some pretty fancy insurance plans themselves so that's not just something on the right. At least conservatives are not hypocrites, practically every liberal I know is. I wish Obama the best in the next 4 years - he is going to need it and so is our country. Maintaining the status quo doesn't help anyone - but isn't that what liberals want to do? Help everyone? Regardless if they are perfectly capable of helping themselves? That's the liberal mantra isn't it - just let people think they need the government and then they'll get the votes. I wonder why none of these people's lives ever get better after voting democrat? Tom Barretts Milwaukee is a perfect example.
Sunrocket November 10, 2012 at 11:17 PM
that would be - no one else to vote for and weather the recession, darn spell check.
Randy1949 November 10, 2012 at 11:24 PM
"At least conservatives are not hypocrites, practically every liberal I know is" Could your statement be any more subjective? It's also more than a little ironic, given the course of this thread. " Considering your side presented no other alternative I guess you had not one to vote for." How often do we see a serious challenger to an incumbent President? As little as i like the status quo, II would prefer the status quo to turning around and heading back to where we were in the fall of 2008.
Bob McBride November 10, 2012 at 11:37 PM
If you're gonna do the 15 second analysis of what ails her, is it asking too much to at least get the spelling of her name right? Unless you were referring to someone else entirely and just misplaced this....Noel Redding....Gallagher....Coward?
Lyle Ruble November 10, 2012 at 11:43 PM
@Bob McBride...Thanks for catching my error.
Bob McBride November 10, 2012 at 11:50 PM
I blame this all on Facebook.
Randy1949 November 10, 2012 at 11:50 PM
@Lyle -- I would have said it was Noelle's behind that got handed to her last time, but you're so much more elegantly-spoken than I am. I'd like to call BS on this entire rant of hers, but one thing I must point out: " I am sorry that as a single mom without child support, I refuse to collect entitlements at the hand of the top 1 percent." As if it's only the top 1 percent who pay for those 'entitlements' that help struggling single mothers. We all pay for those, and we lower bracket types pay more when the 1 percenters get their tax breaks. I really took exception to her remark about paying for other women's 'whoring'.
Mark Sanders November 10, 2012 at 11:51 PM
Well, Noelle started it with "Barrack" ... haha.
Michael McClusky November 10, 2012 at 11:58 PM
I am sorry that Lyle is not so ashamed of his own writings as to never appear on Patch again.
Bob McBride November 11, 2012 at 12:14 AM
All you're doing here, really, is giving Jim Price headaches. Seriously, knock it off already.
Noelle Lorraine November 11, 2012 at 12:19 AM
@ Richard I've never collected a dime of welfare in my life. And yes I smoke. Aside from my maiden name, the rest is lunacy. Of course there's a lot of cases. I used to have rental properties ergo many evictions I had to initiate. As far as AFP that's so far from the truth you're nuts.
David Tatarowicz November 11, 2012 at 12:20 AM
I am so so sorry I wasted any time reading this wacko diatribe
Randy1949 November 11, 2012 at 12:24 AM
So, you didn't work for American For Prosperity?
Noelle Lorraine November 11, 2012 at 12:26 AM
I did work for AFP. I wasn't fired.
Randy1949 November 11, 2012 at 12:30 AM
Congratulations on finding a more lucrative position, then.
Mike in OC November 11, 2012 at 12:39 AM
So nice to see how the "inclusive" Democratic Party uses bully and scare tactics to try and silence those with differing opinions. The left now is begging for cooperation in Washington when they were praising their own Senators who were holed up in Illinois.
Randy1949 November 11, 2012 at 12:43 AM
Those of us who joined the discussion early enough to be getting alerts have had an interesting afternoon..
Joe Peterlin November 11, 2012 at 12:52 AM
Says Randy, after your president divided races, classes and called for revenge. Says Randy, after senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett said, “After we win this election, it's our turn. Payback time!” Now Randy has the sudden bravado to call out "a subtle threat" under the guise of wanting "to bring us all together for the good of a nation." Good luck with that Randy.
Lyle Ruble November 11, 2012 at 12:54 AM
@Michael McClusky...I am sorry to disappoint you, but I'll continue to write.
Joe Peterlin November 11, 2012 at 12:59 AM
Death panels for Medicare and Medicaid patients are already a reality taoist. Doctors, nurses and staff have already coined (and I do mean coined) a p.c. code for it. It's now being called "the pathway", or simply "the path" for short and the number of patients chosen for it has dramatically increased over the past several years. Do your homework before spouting such nonsense tao.
Randy1949 November 11, 2012 at 01:01 AM
@Edward Willing -- Good lord, man, you should proof your posts before you hit submit. Lyle said no such thing. And do you even know what a bastion is?
Mike in OC November 11, 2012 at 01:01 AM
@the Rube... and we will continue to NOT read.
Joe Peterlin November 11, 2012 at 01:03 AM
Nothing comes up for the nom de guerre, Muskego Mom either. Hmm.
James R Hoffa November 11, 2012 at 01:04 AM
Hmm... Hoffa seems to recall that Lyle keeps 'a file' on Mr. Willing! Anyone else remember that?
Randy1949 November 11, 2012 at 01:06 AM
"I did work for AFP. I wasn't fired." That puts an interesting light on your 'grassroots' post of last February.
James R Hoffa November 11, 2012 at 01:06 AM
WOW - Interesting 'conversation' taking place here!
