Obama will win....
Its all in the numbers...He needs 65 million votes
He will get 10 million from the gays because he once said he likes gay marriages, doesn't matter if he really does or not... in four years most will still not be married.
He will get 40 million from people who think he will give them entitlements. They will not get them , but he said they will and he will get their vote.
That leaves only 15 million that for some reason think he will do something that he didn't do this last four years...now we know the next four years will be about as bad as the last, but he will get their vote...
BAM!! 65 million votes....
You mean 270 electoral college votes?

Interesting ideas, thanks. It reminds me a little of the OWS movement. But aren't there some pretty big hurdles to be overcome?
I don't remember precisely, but didn't third-party candidate Ross Perot get about 15% of the national vote? He left no legacy or movement behind, the system continued, unperturbed. How do we get to 30% when the nation is so strongly polarized and dedicated to their candidate? Right now, undecided and third-party combined is at less than 10%. I can't see how that will change significantly.
A vote for an independent throws a real spanner in the works, but it has to be an en-masse vote for an independent candidate to really mean something,
I assume that if the beast is hungry it will just take more. A hungry beast is an angry beast. I don't want to be around if it gets really mad. It will seriously hurt the first million or so people that it gets mad at. And if it does die, what then? Who picks up the pieces? Islam? China? Russia? Mexico? All of the above? I don't care for that very much either.
Starve the beast and screw it up until it dies.
I'm just not clear on how we get from here to a "Worker's Paradise."
