Lessons Learned from the Last Presidential Eleciton

My team lost in the November 6th, 2012 election.
     It was a beautiful night tonight in my neighborhood so I took the dog for a walk.  Its dark we have no street lights, cold for Florida, and the stars and clouds hung against a sky black as coal.  Once I thought of my title for this post then the points came easily, rudely and humorously.  In no particular order here is what I think I learned.

  1. Radio talk show hosts are not right 98.9% of the time.
  2. It would be good to re-read '1984' and 'Animal Farm' by George Orwell.
  3. Expressing your enthusiasm for a candidate and your opinions on Facebook is generally preaching to the choir; a waste of time.
  4. A dirty joke and a snide remark made by late night comedians about your candidate carries a lot of weight with Democrats.
  5. Christians that vote for an evil man are more apt to believe what he says and forgive him for what he does without noticing the candidate is a pathological liar.  
  6. Women on network TV news shows like The View illustrate the old proverb that "You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think."  A majority of voters find them believable and worthy sources of opinion.
  7. I underestimated the stupidity of way over half of the Americans, both living and dead, and non-citizens that voted.
  8. Having a Christian worldview and expressing it in order to convince others to not vote for Obama is like pouring the gasoline of conviction onto the flames of their own self-righteousness. A Christian worldview is a liability not an asset in discussions.
  9. Military veterans are not necessarily for a stronger America.  Like a pastor lead astray, highly respected veterans get bogged down in social issues.
  10. 1 Bald faced lie by a Democrat President carries more weight than 10 Islamic terrorist attacks covered by Fox News.
  11. Guiness Book of World Records needs to make an entry for the world's biggest mulligan.
  12. A majority of Americans don't care about providing full time jobs for others or about an infinite price increase on gasoline.  Transportation by foot and by moped are desireable options if free birth control is promised.
  13. Lucky 13 is: National defense and Israel are of minor importance when compared to his smile and if you don't think so you are a racist.
