Have you had more than your share of the hatred, anger, and stupidity to be found in our political forums? There's such an uproar that our attention
is diverted from many other important topics. Let me look at one.
Currently the momentum and polls seem to be indicating a Romney win, so Obama supporters should be able to imagine what an Obama loss might feel
Obama has Chicago politics, a bag of "tricks," and the incumbency on his side, Romney's supporters should be able to imagine a Romney loss.
Supporters of third parties already know their candidate is going to lose.
So my questions are: 1.) Which is your candidate? 2.) How do you think the nation will react to his loss? 3.) How will you react to it? 4.) How
do you want ATS to deal with your candidate's loss?
Will there be civil disturbances, stock market crashes, martial law, people fleeing the country? Will you just shrug your shoulders, smash something,
file a law suit, join a paramilitary group, start making bug out plans? Do you want ATSers to offer sympathy, laugh at you, try to analyze the
reasons for the outcome, post threads about how the winner cheated?
The day after the election, 40% + of the population is going to be crushed. Prepare now.
P.s. I suppose I should be setting the example. If Romney loses, I don't expect civil disturbances, I expect a shocked amazement, and increase in
fear and suspicion of government. Sales of all sorts of prepper supplies will go up even more. I will shrug my shoulders, have some very large
drinks, and buy a bumper sticker that reads "Goodbye, America, it was fun." I will feel strongly towards the people who voted against Romney, but
that will quickly fade to a deep sadness. I would rather not be mocked or laughed at, thank you very much. I suppose I'd just like ATS to pretend
nothing ever happened so I could mourn peacefully. - C -

gets me acclaim with the Thread Killers, but I'd rather get opinions.
