1. While the electoral vote was pretty decisive, the popular vote was much closer. And althought the popular vote doesn't do much for the actual election, it can have an effect on future policy. The fact that just under half of the country wanted the other guy should be reason for the current regime to move toward a more moderate position on several issues. No, he won't be trying to garner favor for another election. But he is a politician, & politicians really do worry about their legacy. I honestly don't think that the President is in a position to force a 'take-it-or-leave-it" position on any issue. He's going to have to reach across the aisle in order to get anything done. Plus the Democrats will want to put up a candidate in 2016, so BHO may not be so willing to say to heck with the half that didn't want him for the sake of whomever the Dems will want to put up after him.

Obama's goal is and always has been to destroy this country, and he was well on his way before being re-elected. What's about to happen will shock those who haven't been paying attention or haven't sought out the truth.
The 1st and 2nd Amendments will be the first to go. The rest is just a matter of time.
Then stand up & fight for it not to be so BEFORE it happens. I believe that Obama's self-interest will move him to try to cooperate. He wants a legacy & he won't leave the rest of the Dems out to dry. The trick for us is to not let him get any momentum.

But the fact that about half of the voting public disagrees with him leads me to believe that he'll re-evaluate any plans to railroad his agenda. And even if he doesn't, he can't arbitrarily void the US Constitution and set up his own monarchy. It would have to be a process. And in being so, we, as conciencious citizens can act to prevent the further erosion of our rights. Though the cause may be a bit more difficult than we thought it would be before yesterday, it's far from lost.
Do as you may. But I intend to fight for what I believe may be taken from us if we just lay down and let them. Unfortunately I won't be able to do it alone - but I won't let that deter me either. If we stand together & speak with a unified voice, they won't be able to ignore us.

Obama won the popular vote in Houston where I live.
We are a red state.
Romney did not get as many votes as McCain. I waited in line 2 hours to vote.
Rush has an interesting article today. It essentially said you can't win against Santa Claus. http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/ ... claus_wins He said Romney ran a campaign endorsing success through hard work. The American Dream, but its not that America anymore, we are outnumbered.
A friend told me today, "we are old it will not really make a difference to us, but for our grandchildren this is a pivotal change."
I can see the mid terms now. "Give Obama a Democratic house so he can achieve the plans America deserves"
After that there will be an assault weapons ban at a minimum.
