In the wake of the 2012 presidential election, Glenn Beck ceded that his prior prediction that Mitt Romney would enjoy a victory with substantial margins was indeed wrong. Before an audience at his Dallas studio, Beck relayed what his thoughts and feelings had been prior to the election and also delved into where America should go from this point on.

“The biggest problem is not that we didn’t elect Mitt Romney,” Beck began. It is the “hole we have dug for ourselves.”

“Half of our country, our neighbors, are completely lost in darkness… Freedom is at stake and freedom lost last night.”

In speaking about the polarization of the nation, Beck noted that the United States of America “is in name only.”

Despite the grim outlook, Beck, an entrepreneur who, like other business owners across the country will face substantial challenges in the next four years, still believes that path forward is to “double down.”

Many conservatives, and even those other political orientation, will find that his words resonate with them. Watch Beck’s powerful segments via TheBlazeTV below:
