by morning. Real people. Real Americans getting hurt or killed. ....and it doesn't matter WHICH one would landslide. Either outcome will have the
other laughing hysterically at the idea such lopsided results can be taken seriously.....then turning to cold rage when realizing they WILL be taken
Personally...even if my guy appears to be winning..I have no actual plans to celebrate. Not yet. If Romney wins, it'll be a quiet and satisfied smile
of a job well done by all....while being painfully aware that this is likely FAR from over in the minds of about 50% of the population.
50%....either side. The last 4-6 elections have born that % out at being just about dead on, regardless who won or who was sitting in office.
We're divided damn near even. So...if there is a 2/3rd result for either man, the calls of B.S. will be deafening.

I'll stick my neck out and say that you're absolutely wrong on this. No doubt there will be some bellyaching in bars and such, but incidents of
street violence, let alone civil unrest are not going to happen. This will be for three reasons:
1) Everybody shares a common relief that the election is over.
2) The sky didn't fall the last time Obama got elected, so no reason to expect it will this time around
3) The House and Senate didn't change dramatically, so there will be a near-zero net effect in governance.
Why so many Chicken Littles preaching doom and gloom?
