Well ATS it's all over now. It has been a grueling and long political season but now it is done.
For better or worse? Only time will tell for sure.
My guy did not win tonight, but he never really was "my" guy. I was more or less voting to get the other guy out.
I have prayed for this President over the last four years and I will continue to do so. I do not agree with most of his polices but he is the Commander in Chief. He has been reelected and he will be OUR President for four more years.
You may not like him but he is still the President, OUR President.
As I said "I do not agree with most of his policies" but I love my country, I may not like the way it looks at the moment but I still love what it stands for.
We the People have to find someway to come together. This wedge that is being driven further and further between us has got to be removed.
I would really like to see us come together, even if it has to be under this President.
Any ideas on how we could accomplish this?
I am willing, are you?

I'm just glad all the lying, half truths, political ads, political phone calls, propaganda, bias reporting, spin doctors, debates, conventions, stump speeches, and political signs popping up all over the place is finally done!!! The American public have been bombarded with this crap for way too long. This is the longest election campaign I can remember. It's about time the public speaks up and demands campaign finance reform. The campaign process should only be 6 months long, no more no less.

I think I received a dozen recorded phone calls for Mitt Romney in the past 2 days. What's ridiculous, is the recorded calls addressed me by the wrong name!
I think all this in your face push, can really turn off a lot of voters.

It would be nice to have civility. I agree with you. I may not have voted for him, but that's why we have a vote, for the people to choose a president, and this is the man they chose, for better or worse.
As I said to my family members four years ago, let's see what happens.

According to new age websites, Obama was going to win because he is the new world leader, not just the USA president.

It will be interesting to see if the military do have the balls to rebel and create a military takeover.

The ball is in their court now and so far they have done absolutely nothing.

It looks like the 44th President has 44 days to go to lead this world into the NWO.

Sounds like "Revelations". I hope he doesn't become some kind of "world leader". I really don't see it happening.

My name is an inside joke.
I'm a graphic artist, by trade. Self-employed, not sure what to make of the future for now, but I'll just have to see what happens like everyone else. Art is flexible, I'm luckier than most.

6 BILLION?!

Are you serious? :O

That much should never he spent on advertising. I'm not a big NWO believer, more of a "the world is always going to have greedy people" person, but that much money for something that doesn't benefit anybody other than one person....just wow.

Six billion is a bit steep, but there again, the US spends more on potato chips than the UK spends on the BBC. Silly little thing I learned last night during the coverage of the US elections on the BBC news channel.

WASHINGTON: Six billion dollars. That's how much money has been blown to influence the US election race that reached the finish line with Tuesday's vote.

Raising six-figure sums at parties with Hollywood czars and hedge fund tycoons or small double-digit offerings via smartphone apps, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and Congressional candidates have smashed records for campaign spending.

According to an estimate by the Center for Responsive politics, the two White House rivals spent $2.6 billion between them by election day.

Yea, 6 BILLION.
The system needs to be reformed, badly.

Not all politicians. Just those furthering the agenda their bosses want as well.
The system needs to be reformed but it's not gonna happen.
It might be a good idea for the people to vote for the person who doesn't get all of the media attention next time around.

That's a nice sentiment but do you actually think that wedge will ever be removed with the likes of Beck, Boortz, Coulter, Ingraham, Keyes, Medved,Savage and Rush fanning the flames of hatred of the left. People listen to those yahoos and hang on their words like it was gospel.

Sorry, those rightwing AM radio and Fox have a vested [economic/ratings/ads] interest in keeping the US divided. They have their demographic identified and nailed down and provide all the hatred their audience craves with the advertising pains taken targeted. Lots of products of fear like gold and dried food.
It's not like the conservative research A&R guys don't know what they are doing. This is big business style profits for the producers that can deliver for their market.

olaru,
They have power just like the msm has power. Do you really believe MSNBC and the liberal media is not doing the same thing you say the other side is doing?
These folks have power because WE GIVE IT TO THEM.

Unfortunately it isn't all over now it is only beginning. This is the big challenge ahead of us. Those of us who are U.S. citizens have a job to do. We must hold these politicians to their responsibilities. WE have elected them whether we voted for them or not. We keep expecting them to do a good job for America but we aren't willing to do the work to oversee their work. They work for us! Are we going to just let them go to Washington and do what ever they want? Or are we going to be a good boss and supervise their work? With today's technology we have never had a greater opportunity to keep tabs on their work and to give them immediate feedback. Our responsibility didn't end with the vote we cast!

You hit the nail on the head my friend. It's all about personal responsibility. WE have to do what needs to be done.
not leave it it someone elses hands.

I don't see the msm and liberal media calling conservatives traitors like the names I listed above continually do.
The majority of divisive attitudes and mean spiritedness comes from the right. Granted the left has some wackos as well but even on ATS I am frequently marginalized as a "people like you" and called a puppet, commie, socialist, Obama lover, etc.

I love a spirited debate with passion but hate filled rhetoric is now normal at ATS and this election cycle exemplified this perfectly.

lol, I can tell you it does happen. Just go to you tube and look up tea party bashing, right wing bashing or republican bashing.
For you to say it is mostly the right tells me you are out of touch or you are listening to only right wing commentators..
Either way please take the blame game elsewhere (If you can't input something positive please do not post).
