Like most of you, I was convinced that Romney would win the election, however, I will admit that in the back of my mind, I knew Obama would pull it off. However, despite Obozo's win (which I am very angry about), it may well end up favoring our side in the end. You see, I think many on our side failed to see one crucial aspect that even the Romney campaign overlooked: the vast majority (sadly) of the American people don't believe the country is on the verge of collapse. The left is so ingrained, focused, and scared they believe the country is perfectly fine when it is not. This is why I went to college for history: people dismiss it as boring, but one episode can shed light on where our party, and beliefs, are going forward.
Woodrow Wilson was elected in 1912 because of a split in the GOP. Teddy Roosevelt became radically "progressive" (advocating universal healthcare and primaries), attacking Taft and Eugene V. Debs got such a large amount of votes (900,000+) that it sealed Wilson's victory. Well, while in office, Wilson lied to the American people about entering WWI, which he hid successfully until he was re-elected in 1916 with the mantra "He Kept Us Out of the War." During his second term (his first term created the Federal Reserve), he entered WWI which pissed off the American people, and his party was doomed in the 1920 election, and Warren Harding came to become the first Republican in American history to get 400+ EV and reach double-digits in the PV (16,000,000+).
So, don't be discouraged. The country needs to know that there is a real crisis first (in other words, we need to "crash and burn"). Obamanites will realize one day how much of a bozo their Saviour is, and hopefully in 2016, we'll have our own Warren Harding.
