Its inevitable, some of us are going to be very disappointed on the 5th.

What are your plans with coping for your loss? Will you suck it up, or will you fight it? Will you leave the country?



Personally? I'm planning on going to live with my Grandma in the UK. Only after giving the guy I didn't vote for a chance.

If he screws America, I want to stay here and fight, but Americans are cowards and will be to scared to do so (heck we didn't do it with Bush).


So yup... more likely the UK for me.

We'll I won't be cutting and running at all.

This isn't a stab at you personally, but I would never abandon this country I love so much, no matter what one man in the White House was doing or trying to do.

American will survive an Obama term, but it won't be pretty. I'll be here, like I've always been, fighting every step of the way and doing my best to provide for my family.

I'm responsible for my life, not any politician. And they can't take that away from me.

I'll probably be doing a little drinking on the 5th though as it looks now...

I probably won't do much of anything. Now if there is an uprising against him, or the policies I'm pretty sure he will begin implementing, I'm in. Mostly I'll just spend the next four years hoping that we don't vote him back in for a second term like we did Bush. (By we I mean the people who vote for him.
) This used to be a great country. I have hope that it can one day be a great country again. BUT I do not believe that either McCain or Obama will get us there. Honestly I'm worried about what further harm they will do.

Believe it or not, but I agree with you. Ill be cutting and running for survival as the situation I'm in is already bad as it is. Technically under my oppositions plan I would benefit greatly, but a gut feeling tells me things will proceed downhill extremely fast (much much worse than carter).

In addition, I do not want to be a lone warrior (if you get what i'm saying).

Unless it gets particularly bad, I don't plan on leaving. Heck, I probably wouldn't anyway. Otherwise, I would just start looking ahead to 2010 and 2012, hoping that the damage that will inevitably be done isn't irreparable and that the electorate is intelligent enough to reverse this country's course in the next election cycle.

I will cry, and then figure out what to do after that.

Can't do much if you ask me so I may jus cry.

I'm crackin' open a good aged bottle of 'Tulemore Dew' and either cry in my sorrow over Obama winning or sobbing in my glass at the luck that we don't have to try and fight the socialist jugernaut so drasticaly!!

Take my AWB buying out of "just in case" mode and kicking into "ban imminent" mode.

Id hate to spend the money but when something you love could disappear from the legal marketplace you do what you have to.

I will sit back and watch what's coming while going on about with my daily life.

To me it's apparent who's going to win this election.

If IT starts going downhill, I will have the opportunity to "I told you so" at those who supported him.

Odd thought - when are bans on bladed weapons going to be imposed? They use machetes in Africa and stuff...

My guy? He isn't running in this election and if he was the other candidates woulda dropped out and moved to China by now

Yup - I'll pretty much go "well dang", but life goes on.

I think we can make it through 4 years of either.

Well, I just bought the Portuguese language course from Rosetta Stone.
I hear the Brazilian women are the most beautiful in the world. A ticket to Rio is only $664.

It might be nice to hang out on the Beach and dance the Samba at the Mardi Gras in February. That should be enough time for things to settle down; and if they don't; all I need is a laptop and an acoustic guitar to make it anywhere.

I see the US as just getting more divided and ugly regardless of who wins. Life is just to short to live in a toxic atmosphere of mean spirited,
vitriolic idiots. The world is a beautiful place full of beautiful people that know what is important in life and politics is way down on the list. I would
much rather hang out with them, than chest thumping yahoos that seem to be in current fashion.

If it looks like people will chill out and behave, perhaps I'll stay....
but in the mean time...
Who wants a good deal on a 280SL, hardtop conv, cherry and tricked way out!!

After 43 presidents some bad some great it's never a thought of leaving for me. People have been through tough times before and if I have to then so be it. I have children who depend on me and love this country too. We will stay and fight/suffer if we have to but I consider the people who bail out on their country a coward. Too many people have lost their life's for this country and to just bail out and not fight for it would be a cop out and they truly wouldn't be an American. I'll do what I have to do to survive but leaving a country I love for one man ( Obama ) will not happen. Good luck everyone and be strong even in times of trouble.

I think the question should be: What will Bush do after Obama is elected?
Here are a few of the more likely options:

1.) Let Israel attack Iran, since Israel knows Obama won't allow it.

2.) Attack Iran and let Israel sit it out, because he knows Obama won't attack Iran.

3.) Let Iran attack Israel, then involve everyone in a wider war, and leave the mess for Obama.

4.) When Clinton left the White House, he took the towels, when Bush leaves, there will be a much bigger mess. He is still president until January 20th, and that is plenty of time to leave Obama with a mess that will make him a one-term president.

Just sit back, pop a few quarts of popcorn, and watch the drama unfold on 24-hour cable tv. Can you say "Shock and Awe"?

Well, if my guy loses....

I'll get up Wednesday morning and go to work. I will go about my daily life like I always do.

And, I will hope for the best.

I'll be watching from Canada, hoping all hell doesn't break out whoever wins the election. That's my concern. Peace.
