It's playing in the background. They all are saying the same thing over and over again. I watched both McCain and Obama earlier. They both talk a good game. Both VP picks are idiots in my opinion. The only thing I like about Palin is that she is heavily for drilling. I'm still looking for something I like about Biden.

Yep. You pretty much got it right on. But I am emotionally prepared. I've survived it twice before. As far as what I'll do? I will watch as the Republic continues to spiral toward complete breakdown. What else could I do?

Interesting times.

If McCain loses I would like to say I would stand up and do something, but most likely my reasoning will lead me to give Obama a chance since the people (even the fake ones) elected him.

Democrats always think the elections are stolen by republicans, when in truth, it is the democrats that have always raised the dead to vote. Throught our entire voting history more democrats have been caught cheating than anyone else combined.

When obama losses tha blacks will riot and so will the guilty little white fanbois that follow him.

When McCain losses, we republicans will sit back and do nothing because we do not act like criminal, animals.

Oh, you think is the demorat version of Reagan? Reagan wasnt a facist whereas Obama is a communist.

I understand your passion but if a mod sees your post they'll put a sticker on it cause they can't stand name calling and such things. Actually, Obama is a "socialist" which means that everyone should have the same wealth. Those who work hard for it and those who don't.

Back on topic. The Repubs will have to wait to take back the nation in 2010. But the other side is oh so going to riot if they don't have this election their way.

The "sore loser syndrome" is gonna happen. If you voted, and love to rally* - Your gonna be outside the white house/capital on inauguration day most likely with some ignorant hate sign, or corrupt failed politics sign. I do think McCain supporters are gonna be the most vicious tho. (if he loses)
by vicious I mean, who has the more ignorant comments! I've already heard most of them and wow. If Obama loses tho, it IS going to look rigged, with this such a substantial lead all through the race - but wuts the worst they could say about mcCain if he wins?

What if all of the freedom movement, Ron Paul supporters actually vote for Chuck Baldwin and take the election?

The Freedom Movement has been growing every since republicans rigged the primaries and even went so far to tell Ron Paul supporters the wrong dates or locations for there local party meetings etc.

I'm a Ron Paul Supporter and, I have seen the movement grow very silently in the background while the media pays no attention to any third party candidates and its so apparent and appalling that this so called country of freedom, equality, and justice for all totally runs sham elections vie its controlled parrot media.

Ye there are so many disillusioned voters especially after this bailout bill they passed in the face of unheard of opposition by the voters.

What if the third party vote wins? would that not be a shock to the establishment, and the sad sheeple following the medias carrot down the path to destruction.

The polls never mention any of the other third party candidates? Why?

What when Jessie Ventura ran for governor on Minnesota as independent and won shocking the establishment, was his first meeting with CIA asking how he won the governorship, how a independent could win a election?

There is such a HUGE faction of the population that are fed up and not going to take this sham they call "democracy" any more. If that faction talks to the disillusioned.. watch out. There could be a major upset.

When I think about that, you may be right. When it looked like Gore was about to steal the election in 2000, I was ready to hit the streets and do whatever was necceasry in opposition to him. But, he didn't win. I'm not going to do it for McCain as he was not my first choice. But I will vote for McCain because of Sarah Palin.

Watch Barry's rallies very closely on TV. Study the crowd. The majority have a glazed over, star struck look in their eyes. It is just like watching the crowd that swooned over The Beatles or Elvis.


That's true of any rally from any politician. The people who show up are usually the biggest supporters. There's also an atmosphere in the arena that adds to their admiration. I'm guessing that you forgot about that lady who was swaying back and forth as McCain announced his VP pick. You probably just notice it in Obama's crowds because you're looking for it.

Anyway, I agree with those who say that if Obama loses, there will be a lot of people saying that the election was rigged, but only if the polls stay where they are now. If McCain can catch up before the 4th, it will look more believable.
If McCain loses, I don't think we have to worry about a backlash from republicans, we have to worry about a backlash from the racists. Republicans will get over it, the racists will not.

Good point. I do watch Barry's rallies like a hawk. I still find it troublesome that folks can follow a man with virtually no experience with such fervor. The man is a great speaker and motivator but is going to get ugly. It just goes against my grain. I cannot explain it.

If Obama is assassinated before the elections, the Republicans and whites will be blamed and their will be riots or worse.

If Obama wins, the Conservatives will complain a little but not much will happen and the Democrats will claim the elections were fair.

If Obama wins, things will get worse but it will all be blamed on Bush.

If while in office, Obama is assassinated, it could cause some civil unrest.

If McCain wins, the Democrats will say the elections were rigged and there will be massive riots and civil unrest.

I am pretty sure this is why the active duty brigade was brought home from Iraq, to quell the violence that may erupt in the aftermath of this election. Given that it was the Bush administration that brought them home, one may have some insight as to who will ultimately win the election. Lets hope that this prophecy does not prove accurate.

By the way, exit polling was, many times over in the past, used to legitimize elections. That was until, in 2000, Bush was allowed to take office despite the fact that the discrepancies b/w the exit poll results and the actual results showed that there was a 1 in 250 million chance that he won legitimately.

IMO, comparing exit polls to actual election results is accurate and should be used to legitimize elections. The problem is that the 2000 election kind of ruined the perceived credibility of this exact science. Just another example of the damage done by the Bush administrations time in office.

This whole post is so far out in left field, that I hardly know where to start.

First, sources please on an active duty brigade being brought home for the election. Everyone else seems to understand that it was brought home for different political reasons - to give a boost to McCain and perhaps because it really wasn't needed any more in Iraq.

Exit polling has never been used to legitimize elections - except perhaps by sore losers. The real purpose of exit polling is to make a prediction of how the results might turn out if people tell the exit pollers the truth - and there was a recent article that said only 84% promised to do so.

The last paragraph is factually nothing more than your opinion - as you stated. But then you tried to morph your opinion into fact. Doesn't work. Isn't true. Example, polling is not an "exact science". Proof? If it were an "exact science", there would be no such thing as a "margin of error".

Where do these people get this stuff?

Factual. Going back to at least the Kennedy - Nixon election where the dead people of Chicago "voting" for Kennedy put him over the top.


When obama losses tha blacks will riot and so will the guilty little white fanbois that follow him.


Inflammatory and IMO unneccesary.



When McCain losses, we republicans will sit back and do nothing because we do not act like criminal, animals.


The "do nothing" part of this is factual, or at least has been in the past. Voter fraud is criminal, but I would have left off the "animals" reference.


Oh, you think is the demorat version of Reagan? Reagan wasnt a facist whereas Obama is a communist.


Again, inflammatory and IMO unnecessary.

We are all on the losing side my friend.The constitution is the foundation of this country.Would you put up with people taking a hammer and chisel to the foundation of your house?Both democrats and republicans swear an oath to protect and uphold the constitution then both get out thier hammers and chisels.
Just like a house without a foundation this once great country is going to fall.I'm surprised it has stood as long as it has.

I think the losing party ought to sit back with a freakin cold six pack and some popcorn and enjoy the next 4 years.

We will still be in debt.

We will still be at war.

We will still be blaming each other.

We still be talking about racism.

We will still have incompetent leaders.

We will still be paying higher prices.

Then it will be election year 2012 and we will still be talking about fixing the same damn issues as the last election.

Think we better get plenty of beer and popcorn.

If McCain loses expect him to throw Palin to the wolves because you know the GOP base is gonna want someone's head to roll and sure as hell McCain will never take resposniblity for his defeat.Obama well same thing on the dems side as well but Biden will surive that.Not that it really matters,folks the game is fixed.

I'm thinking the rich people will fight back by taking their money out of the economy and invest in other markets,buisness owners will say screw it,why make lot's of money if it will all be taken in taxes,I'm not a multi millionaire but I'm worried all the money I have saved will be taken by the tax man,I'll end up living next door to a lowlife with little to no education,and there isn't a ting I can do about it,guess I should spend now on that new Porsche I've been holding off buying,till the govt taxes it so much I won't be able to drive it

The scary thing is, one of these groups is going to lose. Which one do you think will handle it better. Do you think either side will simply accept defeat!! I think it could get very ugly, regardless of which side wins.
