Looks like my friend Lawrence Auster, of View From the Right, is correct again. It appears likely that Obama will win re-election in a close contest. The old Mencken axiom of "never betting on the intelligence of the American people" has been proven correct...again.
It is a bitter pill to swallow, but the America we believed in is gone.
Update: 7:20 PM, PST: Twitter feeds show conservative morale falling quickly as it appears Obama will win re-election. Dems will retain control of the Senate.
Update: 8:10 PM, PST: Obama leads in electoral votes 229 to 190. California alone will put Obama over the top. It's over. We have lost the election.
That will end my reporting for tonight. Tomorrow we can begin digesting the results and figuring a strategy for the future. Right now, America is a socialist state along the lines of Europe. America will suffer much for this election, but have no one to blame but themselves.

Please forgive me for having encouraged anyone to believe that there was still hope to save America. We’re obviously doomed beyond all hope of redemption.The sad thing is that Romney will win the popular vote, but lose the election.
