ACORN stole the election

Seeing a poll result like this makes me worry about my country.

Raleigh, N.C. PPP's first post election national poll finds that Republicans are taking the results pretty hard...and also declining in numbers.
49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore.
Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States. 25% of Republicans say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to 56% who want to stay and 19% who aren't sure. 

ACORN, The New Black Panther Party,  Somalians in Ohio,  black people voting in Maine, Zero votes for Romney in Philly and Tinkie Winkie fixed the election for President Obama. Sheesh, you guys lost so get over it.

No, he is not Superman. 

Wake up Republicans. Get out of your echo chamber.

As Ronnie Reagan, the party's patron saint once said, "Facts are stupid things."

The GOP refuses to accept any facts from evolution to arithmetic.

If they keep on this track they will be a minority party within 15 years.

Self-deception is a powerful thing. Kind of like a Heroin addiction. Now self-deception isn't the sole property of the GOP, but man, they have been stockpiling it over the past few years. I do think it reached it zenith (or would that be nadir?) with Mittens, who, for example, truly wanted to believe that millions of illegals would voluntarily self-deport and go back to the hell holes they risked their lives to escape...but so I digress.

Here's to hoping that rational thought in the GOP prevails. Stop the crying like jilted jr high school girls. Stop the pandering to old, angry white guys, stop sucking up to million & billionaires who for the most part don't vote Republican anyway. Start standing up for common sense real, actual tax-reform, and individual rights (not just to own superior firepower, but also how about privacy? And marriage equality?). Stop dictating what women can do with their own bodies. Leave the preaching in Church. Oh, and how about leaving Science to Scientists (and not, for example, noted Climatologist and Oxycontin spokesperson Rush Limbaugh?).

Sometimes you need to hit the bottom before you can reach back up. I truly hope that's the case for the modern Republican Party.

Well I can't speak for all Republicans but I am not that unhappy with the results ....going to be an interesting sociological experiment ....can you continue to reduce the number of employed while increasing the number of deadbeats while increasing the cost of government while continuing to raise taxes while decreasing the ratio of those who pay for it while putting the excess on credit cards. As a sociologist I have a curiosity to see how it all works out. Will the entire nation go the way of other successful democrat experiments in failure such as Detroit ..... Flint .... Gary ..... Washington D.C. ..... Baltimore .... Newark .... Camden ....Wilkes Barre ....Scranton .....Harrisburg .... New Orleans ..... Bell ..... California .... Chicago ..... I mean I could be surprised

Obama's kryptonite "It's the economy, stupid"...Republicans need a James Carille type to play Lex Luthor.

In case you missed it Aggie95: ACORN was found NOT GUILTY of EVERYTHING they were accused of IN COURT, and the "pimp/acorn" video was a proven James O'Keefe HOAX along with Breitbart

Giles Admits O'Keefe, Breitbart ACORN 'Pimp' Story was a Lie: 'That Was B-Roll, Purely B-Roll'
Woman who posed as prostitute confirms repeated misreporting by NYTimes, many others
Why does 'paper of record' still refuse to retract, apologize?...

NOT reported on in the "liberal drive by media", you know, the liberal media that's owned by corporations like GE, AOL/Time Warner, etc...those NOT liberals. That's another HOAX: the mainstream media is "liberal".

TOTAL HOAX, NOT TRUE: THE ACORN/PIMP VIDEO WAS A HOAX, never really reported on, found NOT GUILTY in court, court said: "VIDEO WAS HIGHLY EDITED TO MEET AN AGENDA". Look up the court cases.

Breitbart Confirms He Was Duped by O'Keefe and the ACORN Pimp Hoax

Hardly anybody has reported that O'Keefe's attack on ACORN turned out to be legal gossamer. Despite the lurid video and hysterical charges of ACORN lawbreaking, there were no arrests or indictments, no evidence that any of the nitwits featured on the videos ever completed or filed illegal paperwork.
The only illegal behavior, in fact, may have been O'Keefe's violation of anti-wiretapping laws.
Only a few news outlets have noted that O'Keefe did not wear the outlandish pimp outfit into every ACORN office; in some cases, he spliced footage of himself into the finished product to make it look that way. And of course, neither O'Keefe nor his boss, conservative media entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart of, has ever released the full, unedited videos.
Even the political goal of the ACORN hit job - getting Congress to pass a law stripping the group of federal funding - was struck down as unconstitutional by a federal judge within weeks. Once again, scant coverage.
Don't hold your breath waiting for an apology from those who mistakenly believe O'Keefe's antics to be a genuine search for the truth.
