Discouraged Voter?

As a Romney voter, this woman may get skinned alive in Marin County!

As I sit here finishing up my latest painting, off work with a knee injury for weeks, waiting for surgery, I am discouraged about VOTER DAY.

I have done my homework, checking things out with my sis in Colorado — her husband was a state legislator for several years and keeps up on the political front like no other in our family. Well here goes, they went to SEE Rick Santorum, Obama and Ryan so far. Rick was my first choice after Bachmann ... Oh, I hear the groans coming from all my liberal "fans" in Marin now.

After much study online, with sis, and with the movie at the Northgate mall, Obama's America 2016, I KNOW I am not voting for him again. I did last time and even bought his buttons, donated from my low income, and thought a man of color was the "ticket." OMG, is that how they say it?

OMG, Obama is the one NOT to vote for this time. Yes, he is cute at times. He is a good father ... well, that depends on his girls, he listened to about gay marriage?? What father takes the PRESIDENT lead over what his kids told him was right at the dinner table?

I'm an old radical, and yes, a rascal too — I went to ACLU meetings, political meetings, marches and the like. I went to money raise for Kathleen Brown in my distant past. But this time around, I am wearing a Republican coat!  

If you hate Romney because he is rich well, Obama is a multimillionaire, also!

It has been said that Obama is gutting America, ending our prayers, and for gay marriage as well as abortions. I have too much knowledge about all of those to say yes to them, or any person who runs for office with those issues in their "yes" column. I will at this point vote for most anyone other than Obama.

Enough said, I am sure my car tires will be flat before morning, my back will have a knife in it, and my American flag may get burned before Nov. 5. 

Just please remember: This is our FREEDOM to vote who we believe in.

Desiree, First who are you?You certainly like to throw around labels for those you do not even really know.A church is the people,did you know that?Not a building,nor a chapel,or an old barn.It is the people who are the church of God.I keep some things private-I wont have my denonmination attacked because you don't like me,but trust me,I am a member of a good bible Church,that helps people all over the world.My brother is also a minister and teen leader in another area.I have taught children,teens and also adults in my life.I took in a group of children that were being sent home as brats,and walked and taught at the park across the street.I also led a large group of women,and later had a prison ministry in several states continured ---
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 07:31 PM
Continued....I've met people who are also ministers of the lost,lonely and forgotten.I worked with the homeless in Marin Co.helping them paint a mural,and praying with them-just support meetings for them.I chose to do Gods will when I am out and about,and I use my computer for God too.I love people, all people,but I also call a sin a sin.God was not always "tolerant",He set down laws of His own,He loves all people,but we are the ones who must turn from sin-daily. Your definition of Sin may not align with God's.Incidentally,I am against the"church"that pickets military funerals and am in no way aligned with some religious cult that screams at people on the streets.But again,I will not come on here and say white is pink,or red is black.I ask the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me.If you do not like what I write,you can always not read it. (its always amazing how people who are not Christian interpret things about us:-)some people find the truth offensive. Sincerely, jane
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 07:49 PM
And Dave,,,,,,,,I see your back to calmly attack my motives? Please, I told you, I am not on here for you to attack. This is a blog to discuss what we may find right or wrong with our system, govt. or president. I am not for Obombanation, lol, I believe he is up to changing our whole country, laws and has the backing of radical Democrats, and others. He's shown me his choices in his background and even today. He fraternised with Communists, it is known his grandparents who raised him were Communists also. He took up friendships with people like Bill Ayers,a man who believed in bombs and radical moves. I don't have to "prove" Obama's history, it speaks for itself. This is why many many people in America are unsettled with this election ,it was bolstered up by Liberal media, always gloating over O, and ranting negatives about R. I know what I am seeing. Many are not, like thousands, or even millions, do not like what they see. We don't want a Socialist nation period. Our nation was founded on Christian/faith principals,,, even Billy Graham, a multi multi year leader, councilor to many presidents said to vote Biblical,,,,,,,so now what is the enemy doing? Trying to find some way to even silence Billy. We can see it, and if you can't, we hope you will before it is too late. And if it comes to pass, God is still in control. We may get this New World Order, and it is not what some would think it is. Or , we may meet our maker sooner than we think.(end times?). Sincerely, jane
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 08:12 PM
Steve: Thank you,,,,,,, I think you have misinterpreted me in many ways here. I believe that the main stream Liberal Media helped O to get back into office. He is not my leader. I voted for him the first time around and have admitted I did like so many,and voted for him primarily due to his being of color.I thought it would be good to have a president of color to work with leaders of color all over the world.I was wrong,he is dealing with them unlike I had ever imagined.He was even caught talking about "wait until after I am elected"to one leader- under his breath on TV.I saw it with my eyes.I also have seen that he flip flopped on important issues he ran on,and now changed his mind. Some- due to his kids at the dinner table (his admission on news) his girls changed his mind.This is not the kind of leader I want .He is an eloquent speaker, although I see it different now, he is about radical change, not hope and change. He has an AGENDA, and now it shows, why do you think the other near half of Americans voted against him? Are all of them wrong in what they see? Did you go see the documentary Steve, Obama's America 2016? I did,as soon as I heard about it. He is one scary dude!He came from desfunction and was raised all over the place,who wouldn't be mixed up being raised a Muslim in part and then have communist grands raise you too? He dabbled - smoking Pot a drug,,he is about lots of things that we never knew before electing him the first time around.I regret it. jane
Steve November 14, 2012 at 08:54 PM
Jane, you haven't articulated a single verifiable basis for your opposition to Obama beyond claiming he has flip-floped on issues (name them please). What new information do you have about him that was not used against him in his first election? As for people who voted for Romney, I'd say a fair proportion of them believe what they hear on Fox News and are completely detached from reality. I have to admit that I did not see the propaganda movie you so clearly grasp as the truth. Nor do I intend to do so. Accusations based on innuendo and character assassination have no place in rational debate. It says more about the accuser than the accused. You still did not answer my question about what rights you are currently being deprived of by the Obama administration? How are we living in a dictatorship? Please cite something beyond your feelings. If you'd like to have a real impact on society, you need to be able to debate based on factual evidence, not your inchoate fears. Also, you do yourself no favors by referring to the president as " Obombanation" It just displays thoughtlessness.
Steve November 14, 2012 at 09:04 PM
Of course Obama has an agenda. He just ran a very expensive re-election campaign. We're you not listening? His stated goal is to enlarge the middle class and to tackle the deficit by a balanced approach of letting the tax cut on the wealthiest expire and to reduce government spending, including military spending. He will end our involvement in Afghanistan (which even Romney decided was the right policy despite his earlier criticism of it). He also favors investing in technologies that will lessen our reliance on oil. There is no hidden agenda, he laid it all out there. He also won the votes of a majority of voters, twice! So despite your belief that the sky is falling (as was incorrectly claimed by the GOP when Clinton pushed through tax increases on the top earners), if Obama is successful you may actually have something to cheer you up.
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 09:49 PM
Okay, this time,ONE: he flipped flopped on marriage. TWO: he is kinoodling with our enemy's and ignoring our alli's. THREE: He is not a dictator yet,just close to it: he makes decisions on his own without consulting who he should be consulting. FOUR: He has a hidden agenda that you cannot see, go looking. FIVE: You bury your head in the sand, saying a good factual documentary (in Obama's own words from his own writings)it is just propaganda, yet you did not go see it??? enough said on that one,,,,,your narrow? SIX: I faver Military and spending , I want the strongest Mil we can get. SEVEN: I don't watch Fox News! I don't have to. Read. EIGHT: It is not his place to expand the Middle Class, it should not be done by his "redistribution" tactics. Dictators do this. NINE: He will not drill for oil,and only talks NOW about coal,,after Romney stated it over and over. Obomination is just a copy cat if it gets him favor. TEN:If you are the kind of person to "judge"a book by its cover, and not go see a proven documentary, we should part ways, I go, I went to M.Moore"documentary"and did not judge it without seeing it.You didn't. Are you a Christian?and do not realize end times seem to be upon us.O does not cheer me up.Good govt. does.(are u on bosses time?). jane
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 09:57 PM
If you cannot SEE your being bamboozeled, try some of our other comment folks on here, I am not God you know? You are not either Steve. I created OBOMBANATION,,,,, sounds rather catchy Steve, I tend to like it. And besides, Obama likes his list of enemy's and uses his "drone power" to bomb people he hates,,,, oh but that's okay as long as your not on his personal "LIST". Go figure. jane
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 09:58 PM
It's called FREE SPEECH. We all have it>>> for now<<<???, use it. jane said it and sticks by it.
Steve November 14, 2012 at 10:47 PM
1. Obama did not support gay marriage, but did support civil unions. Yes, he then changed his position and came out in favor of gay marriage. I salute him for it. 2. "kinoodling" is not a word I recognize. Did you mean "coddling?" Which enemies are you referring to? Iran, where we have imposed such severe economic sanctions that their currency has been devalued by more than 50%? You would prefer we start another war with a nation that has the ability to retaliate against our economic interests (Straits of Hormuz?) to a much greater extent than Iraq? What other countries do you believe are our enemies? Which ally is he ignoring? 3. What aspect of checks and balances do you believe are not capable of functioning in our democracy? If the president were to exercise powers outside his constitutional authority, you might expect the GOP would make an issue of it. Who has he not consulted that he has a legal obligation to consult? The Senate has the power of "advise and consent" to his appointment of a variety of officials and judges, except when they are out of session. Are you disturbed at the few times the president has actually made recess appointments? 4. I guess he has done a great job of hiding his hidden agenda, since only you seem to be aware of it, though you haven't disclosed the specifics with anyone yet.
Steve November 14, 2012 at 10:55 PM
5. I checked wikipedia about your favorite movie. Here are some telling reviews: Joe Leydon of Variety said "The deft editing and overall technical polish -- as well as a generous travel budget -- go a long way toward making the pic an attention-grabber" but that "the pic comes off as a cavalcade of conspiracy theories, psycho-politico conjectures and incendiary labeling" making it "highly unlikely that anyone predisposed to championing Obama would be won over". He also stated, "there's no gainsaying the value of '2016' as a sort of Cliffs Notes precis of the conservative case against the re-election of our current U.S. president." Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly called the film, "A nonsensically unsubstantiated act of character assassination". Ben Mankiewicz stated, "I think [the film] is another reminder of how many people in this country find Obama so shockingly unlikesome that they are seemingly ready to believe the most nonsensical theories about him." continued . . .
Steve November 14, 2012 at 10:56 PM
5. In the New York Times, Andy Webster labeled the film "strident" and said "D’Souza stumbles when interviewing George Obama, the president’s half-brother, an activist who voluntarily lives amid squalor in Nairobi, Kenya" by trying to suggest that Barack Obama has not provided any help for his brother. Beth Fouhy of the Associated Press questioned some of the film's points and said its central thesis that Obama's presidency is an expression of his father's political beliefs, "is almost entirely subjective and a logical stretch at best". In the Washington Post, Michael O’Sullivan described the movie as a "slick infomercial...destined to irritate the president’s supporters while mobilizing his detractors, even as it is doomed to win precious few converts", while also criticizing D'Souza for "fear-mongering of the worst kind". Bill Goodykoontz of The Arizona Republic said it was "preaching to the choir" in a style similar to Michael Moore's films, but without the humor, straw men, and views from the other side.
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 11:08 PM
Oh my, more poor Govt. spending,,,,,,,,,,,,,where does Hillary come off doing things like this? U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that the U.S. will provide an additional $30 million in humanitarian aid to Syria, bringing the total U.S aid to the war-torn nation to $200 million. Enough said Steve, You rely on what others put up about the documentary, I went to see for myself......I don't agree with the critics and am sure many , and I read of some who saw it as truth. I believe it. Steve, if I ever saw a flip flop answer your number one is,,,,,we have to disagree here also,,,,,,,HE supports marriages(not real ones according to God's word) that he said he did not,,,,,,you can frame it however, HE FLIP FLOPPED, changed his mind due to his children? Man, I hope he does not make policy with them! If you read people who love Obama, and there are plenty who do, you will come to diff. conclusions than I do Steve. Enough of this. You want to argue with me,,,, I find you to be biased , and so am I. Have to agree to disagree. jane
Steve November 14, 2012 at 11:09 PM
6. I don't exclude the need for a strong military, but I don't "faver" spending money for the sake of enriching military contractors. The military leadership is not complaining about Obama's budget cuts. 7. Okay, so you don't watch Fox News. Where do you get your information? 8. It is his place to expand the middle class. 70% of this economy is based upon consumer spending. If you reduce income levels, you reduce spending, and you reduce economic activity. Again, what do you mean by redistribution? You have not explained that, yet it is central to your critique of Obama. That, and he's a dictator. Please elaborate on that one too. 9. There is more production of domestic energy sources now than at any time in the past. In fact, just today the International Energy Agency released a report that says within 10 years the US will be the world's largest oil producer. http://www.upi.com/Business_News/Energy-Resources/2012/11/14/US-energy-group-seizes-on-IEA-outlook/UPI-59871352896912/ 10. No I'm not going to see that movie. I'd rather spend my time with my family than watch what you assert is a documentary.
Steve November 14, 2012 at 11:14 PM
Of course I have a bias, but at least I rely on facts and logic. He said he changed his position on marriage, and used his children as his example for it. I applaud him for it. I believe anyone who loves another should be able to enter into marriage. If you don't like gay marriage, you don't have to have one, but why should you be able to impose your beliefs on others? Do you believe your interpretation of the bible should dictate the laws that we all must live by, despite the fact that many of us do not follow your beliefs?
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 11:47 PM
You say Steve"I guess he has done a great job of hiding his hidden agenda,(yes he has)since only you seem to be aware of it,(are you trying to kid me?Millions by now SEE it) though you haven't disclosed the specifics with anyone yet."NO,I won't do your homework for you Steve,& you refused to go to the assembly of good everyday folks who were very interested in Obama's America 2016, last I heard millions went to it.I guess we are all doped? I personally think Clinton,Bill Clinton disgraced OUR White House,should have been thrown out,,he is an adulterer for goodness sakes,not once- with a childish girl,but scores,but now, he what?Vouches for who?Obombanation!!Wow, such forgiveness!We need to regain so much respectful behavior in our country, (flipping off past presidents portraits inside the White House,,,OUR White House,,Where was the secret service?) or like the two new Military Generals, phone sex?(and not disclosed UNTIL O gets elected,,like the people who were murdered in Libya?)My goodness,are we not seeing that Secrets in our govt. along with Porn and sex, like on" Hugg news" every nite,is slanting people to view "her dress is too tight" or too low cut, wow what news!!And what star is divorcing whom, every nite!Clinton and now bommy fits right in. Give it a few more years and Bommy will be giving paid speeches to children on "How to influence your mom & pop politically at the dinner table". To those who SEE- life is a comedy, to those who feel -it is a tragedy.
Steve November 14, 2012 at 11:51 PM
Okay, I give up. I've wasted enough time trying to engage you in a rational discussion today. I'm sure you will continue to enjoy your simple understanding of the world no matter what anyone says.
Jane Gray November 14, 2012 at 11:55 PM
And to all of those who want gay homosexual marriages>>>>> why should you be able to impose your beliefs on others? Do you believe your interpretation of the bible should dictate the laws that we all must live by, despite the fact that many of us do not follow your beliefs?" It works both ways Steve.
Jane Gray November 15, 2012 at 12:00 AM
I rely on facts and logic also,and my faith that God put in the Holy Scriptures that has lasted throughout the ages, what he intended for HIS creation. We are to marry and thus also produce our children, those little cute beings who need a mother and a father, like Mary and Joseph,,,,,,remember all the biblical Manger Scenes Steve? They were for real, not just some dumb fake show. There are FACTS in our bibles Steve. Sorry you have not tried them yet? Perhaps one day you will and you will be welcomed with open arms. Sincerely, jane
Jane Gray November 15, 2012 at 12:07 AM
I read Steve, I also have family, retired Lt. Col, Sr Chief PO, officers(police), politicians who served already,,,,,, I am not some dumb slouch, and you cannot put me where I don't want to be, at least not for long. I love people,and I love my country, just as my parents did,,,, we are a patriotic family of Christians and I am glad. WE are not snooty or rich, but we are not dirt poor either,our riches come from the Lord, like our children, our blessings, I guess we are a good smattering of every day people. Take care, jane

More new's off line in case you may have missed it, Steve, Dave, Renee,and all the reader's on here: "Our only recourse now is to move forward with the full impeachment of President Obama. We suspect that Obama is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and that there may be grounds for impeachment as is laid out in the constitution. Further, he may not even be a U.S. citizen because nobody, I mean no one, has seen an actual physical copy of his birth certificate. Impeachment is our only option. And Republicans are already considering Obama investigations. As the nation's most effective conservative group we are launching the official impeach Obama campaign." Jane Some times I really wonder what people are thinking,,,,,this has gone on far too long, and so have the inner circle "secrets".
Steve November 30, 2012 at 05:24 PM
Jane, are you going to lead the Novato tea party/birther campaign to impeach Obama?
Betty Pancakes November 30, 2012 at 06:44 PM
Lordy me, such a loooooong thread 'o comments. But all the same, I thank Novato Patch for making this possible so that we may exchange comments and the like with our neighbors. You da man, B-Ains!
Jane Gray December 01, 2012 at 04:36 AM
No Steve, I did the warning as much as I could on this blog,, Obama is headed towards the One World Govt.- NEW WORLD ORDER,,, and I think Hillary is also. She had said she was not interested in anymore runs for the White House, but now,,,,she looks to be aimed at a run. We are in end times Steve, I am pretty sure of it,,,, and all the laws that are and will be quickly changed, taking more and more of our rights away. There will soon be no manger scenes, White House Christmas tree time--- is now to be called the "Holiday" tree. Why? Was Christmas offensive to so many? (it represents Christs birth) and that offends people,,,,,,0ur country has really changed, and I just hope things are going to get better , but,,,,,,,,,, It just goes on , I wonder at times how many people actualy see it as Christians do? We are pretty sure, in agreement that end times are upon us,,,,,, so Evil will prevail on the surface. But God is still in control. I have my faith and beliefs as you must Steve,,,,,,,,so for now, I am just recouping from a very serious Embolism, and watching in wonderment- all the blind American's out there. God has lots to do, while I recoup here,,,,smile, He knows much better than I how to bring more and more to Himself. God bless you Steve, you and yours in the coming year, Sincerley, jane
Jane Gray December 01, 2012 at 04:39 AM
Yes Betty, thanks for the noticing it,,,,, isn't it great that so many wanted to talk about their reasons for their voting for whomever? I am so glad people came out and talked, good bad or in between, we made lots of comments. God bless you, jane
Jane Gray December 01, 2012 at 04:52 AM
One example tonight jumped out at me, how the liberal media makes things "sound" so good,,,,,,,,,,, "Is Marijuana Responsible For California's Drop In Youth Crime?" (no the article goes on to state the fact that they loosened the laws have made the difference.)
Jane Gray December 02, 2012 at 10:57 PM
IT will never end................This election defeat occurred in part because Obama's best friends at Planned Parenthood spent millions on his re-election. Did you know the abortion giant spent $15 million from its political coffers to get Obama re-elected?They are all too happy to keep tearing the unborn from women,, such "women's rights" for the female babies? This all should be left with the doctor, the parents if under aged, and the mothers who are giving up so so much. This is not done for the child, but for those who find the child " unwanted " and the Obama's are a very big part of it,,,,,,but oh, what if we did not get all that money Barack? She said....." Happy Holidays child, but we just don't want you"..........and we don't care that there are millions of folks who would love you and care for you with adoption......... God bless the "unwanted children"... jane
Jane Gray December 02, 2012 at 11:01 PM
I about "gagged" when a friend said "Oh , but Michele Obama has done so many good things" ---Like accepting Planned Parenthood?
Jane Gray December 02, 2012 at 11:15 PM
Oh the Christmas holidays are here once again,, the cold always adds to the Season, running around all over shopping for more and more China made items perhaps? The manger scene is being outlawed in different states and places. Pretty soon we will have only our own Nativity scenes in our homes to remember....... and those pesky bibles? We will one day have to hide them, not use them, and don't sing any real Christian songs out in public,,,,opp's there goes the Christmas---no--" HOLIDAY" caroling! But just think ahead, we have Lady GAGA to tell our children they are okay, she puts herself as the head of Gay Rights, and sinful children, half naked to do her "thing", and then there will always be the Springsteen's ,Snoop dogs, rap and crap to tell us that Obama, Abortions,and POT use is okay, that abortions are on demand, that we shall not sing about ourSavior,,,,as though all that would diminish God? Fat Chance Hollyweirds, you can flaunt, haunt, rant , support and taunt with all your bucks, but God is sovereign and always will be. OH hark the Hearld Angels sing,, Glory to the New born King!
