Is traditional America gone forget that is the subject of this evening's talking points -- Emotions still running high after last week's presidential vote many who supported Mitt Romney feel somewhat betrayed and there is anger as well as sadness in the air.
My pal Dennis Miller believes traditional America has been vaporized that it is gone for good.
Do I think I'll ever see it go back in my life side to the other -- though I don't I think this is it so I think it's the America that I saw from eighteen to 58 now I don't.
Is that the end of the world now it's not like I was in the shower this morning and found a lump in my armpit.
That's always my fallback position.
I got a great life but I'm just saying it is not the America I've grown comfortable with.
Now I've given Miller's.
Election -- a lot of thought.
And I disagree with -- I believe traditional America can come back but we'll take a very special person to make that happen.
Let's look at what happened six days ago President Obama received about 62 million votes 11% last that he -- 2008 so he's slipping and popular.
But -- ended up with 3.3 million fewer votes -- the president close but Robby got 2% fewer votes and John McCain garnered 2008.
By any measure a poor performance for governor Romney remember McCain was running right into a recession.
So is more about Romney's failure to build on McCain's vote -- Obama doing everything.
A stronger candidate would have defeated the press.
Obama won the woman vote blacks and Asians but it was the Hispanic vote that really nailed Romney.
71% of Latinos voted for the president and that was a difference in Florida Virginia Colorado and Nevada on the states were impacted as well.
-- took white males and independents by significant margins but when you bunch it all together when you bunch it up it was an entitlement vote this year.
American families earning less than 30000 dollars a year broke big for the president 62%.
To thirty -- So is clear that left wing ideology.
Did not win the day for Barack Obama big spending.
On federal programs -- that's a key because many of the media would have us believe that liberal ideology was confirmed by this election.
It was not.
Secularism is certainly eroding traditional power no question about it.
Those Americans who attend religious services at least once a week voted for Romney 5930.
Problem is church going is on the decline in this country here's an example.
Despite the president's controversial insistence that some Catholic entities provide birth control and after pills.
Catholic supported Obama fifty to 48.
Down from 2008 that still surprised so.
But only about 30%.
Of American Catholics now attend weekly -- -- -- see the impact of creeping secularism.
On the religious vote.
On paper the stats look hopeless for traditional Americans what they can be reversed however.
It will take a very special politician.
To do that.
By the way Mitt Romney didn't even try to marginalize secularism he basically ignored.
A mistake because President Obama is the poster guy.
For the secular progressive movement.
The key question going forward is ESP moving good for Americans no matter what their ethnicity or economic condition and the answer is no.
Three vivid examples.
Secular progressives champion -- do -- own thing philosophy no judgments about personal behavior are allowed in that arena.
The public school system has adopted that philosophy.
And that's now wreaking habit.
On American society.
About 41% of American babies were born out of wedlock that's up eight percentage points since 2000.
And up an astounding 23.
Percentage points since 1980.
Babies born to unmarried women drive poverty every study shows that an American minority groups -- the most effective.
A black babies were born outside of marriage.
53 of Hispanic babies -- the number was 29% for -- So this cycle continues minorities are more affected by poverty.
Because the traditional family unit.
Has broken down in those precincts.
And rather than trying to reverse that.
Secular progressives what more entitlement spending.
Nothing about changing -- teen attitudes.
On the abortion front -- thing rather than trying to discourage taking the lives of millions of fetuses.
PSPs have created a mythical.
War on win.
At Seoul called reproductive rights are under -- -- The abortion zealots want the procedure on the -- no matter how late term and -- rightly opposed even counseling.
Before this life -- procedures undertake.
Abortion is -- long USA.
But it should be discouraged because human DNA is present upon conception.
Thus the situation becomes a human rights issue.
Ask yourself this question.
Should America be a country where potential human life and undeniable fact after conception.
Is terminated for convenience.
-- the kind of country we want.
And the federal government's gonna demand that citizens who oppose abortion and -- What say you Planned Parenthood.
Finally two states Washington and Colorado voted to legalize pot here the grim stats on this idiocy.
Since 2008 teenage pot use up 40%.
And heavy use for teens has increased 80%.
States that have lenient medical marijuana laws driving those stats why.
Because legalizing pot sends a message that it's finding is that.
And getting the drug at the corner pot shot makes it readily available to anyone.
Ask any drug counselor.
And he -- she will tell you.
Once a child is introduced to a toxic debts that child's life changes for the worse some may not become substance involved -- millions will.
Do we want to encourage that.
Yes -- they don't care about addiction.
They don't want limitations.
On so called private behavior no judgments.
Wanna smoke drugs I -- to abort a fetus will drive it at the clinic.
Want to have a kid when you're sixteen no problem at all we will support you.
It Mitt Romney spell that out what the secular progressive move it is really all about.
In strong vivid terms and how President Obama enables -- Romney would not have lost 71% of the Hispanic -- and I can tell you.
I believe the majority of Americans can be persuaded.
But the far left is a dangerous enough.
Bent on destroying traditional America and replacing it with a social free fire zone that drives dependency.
We the people need to be confronted with the reality of our situation.
What sold any of our politicians are cowardly.
That the truth is rarely -- Well tonight you heard.
And maybe four years and now.
What's really at stake in America.
Will finally be heard loud and clear.
