Photo: Eugene Republicans react to election results

Posted by Michael Arellano on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 10:34 pm.

The Lane County Republican Party hosted their election watch party at the Oregon Electric Grill in downtown Eugene. Unfortunately, the election results did not favor their party as local Republicans watched the presidential race called for President Barack Obama shortly after 8pm.

Elisa Later speaks to her son Jason, 32, currently living in Alvin, Texas. Later, a Texas native herself, called home to share her disappointment with the election results with her brother and son. “[There are] a lot of disappointed folks,” she lamented, “we worry that there won’t be another Republican president after this. It’s a sad day in history. We’re hoping that Texas will secede.” (Michael Arellano/Emerald)

    Texas Judge Warns of Possible Civil War if Obama Re-elected ….President Obama making the comment in Russia that he would be “more flexible” after his re-election, only fanned the flames of a fire that already threatens to burn out of control. That fire is the rage of American people who feel this President has trampled our Constitution, abused his power, and ignored the Bill of Rights. There is a growing fear of just what kind of “transformation” Obama has in mind for America.Many people feel if he is re-elected, he will be out of control and the liberties Americans have always known and enjoyed will become history.
    There has even been talk of some states, like Texas, seceding from the Union.
    Now, a Texas judge has added some validity to the “talk” by predicting possible “civil war” if president Obama is re-elected.
    Judge Tom Head was on a local TV news show making his case for a tax increase, when he said hiring extra sheriff’s deputies would especially be needed if Obama wins in November. From Lubbock’s Fox 34 News:
    “He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?,” Head asked.
    “I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy. Now what’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in U.N. troops. I don’t want ‘em in Lubbock County. OK. So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say, ‘You’re not coming in here.’ And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him, I said, ‘You gonna back me?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I’ll back you.’ Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me.”

      2 Timothy 3:1-9 Perilous Times and Perilous Men
      3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. NO NEED TO SAY MORE……
