Dream on, November 8 the anger, excuses, and more polarization begins (whoever wins or loses) along with the drive for the 2014 congressional elections and the 2016 Presidential one. The first Presidential election I remember 1952 Stevenson versus Eisenhower and I have never seen anything like the polarization and vitriol this campaign has brought out (perhaps because of 24/7 news and the internet). I guess I'm a pessimist, I think it will only get worse.
I will be glad when it's over. I don't know how the candidates can even stand to hear themselves any more. What kind of vitamins are they ON???
But I do care very much who wins. I guess that's another reason it's stressful, and I want it to be done already.
Almost there. And I REALLY hope there isn't voter fraud or any question about the results. If so, then that will drag on and on with recounts and the like. I hope it's just a clear win for someone.
It's always like this and I hate it too.
Pennsylvania went to electronic voting machines and who knows if they are even connected to anything or if they in fact register a vote at all.
We all take the voting system to be 100% honest, and accurate +/- "a few" votes.
In reality, We do not know if they are even counted or someone just made up the numbers. How can you honestly say that you know for a fact that the votes were even counted?
Then add into the situation that the President is elected by the electoral college and not the people !!!
Yes, there have been 4 times where the Electoral college has voted in the losing candidate and made him President even though the people wanted the other person.
Election Day=No School=No work for me!
Only good thing I can think of about it! :)
EXTREMELY. However, go Romney!
..even though I cannot vote yet.
<- Smiles, nods, tries to hide but works in hospitality so will be in the thick of it.
We can't vote here till the 7th.
Yeah the messed up thing is - If they have people who do the absentee voting, but don't actually vote on the absentee, and go in to vote? In Ohio they aren't legally allowed to count those votes until the 17th of November. I mean its the same with every state. But I really, REALLY can't wait for this crap to be over. I'm so exhausted by the flame wars of political BS right now.
I miss the Wendy's commercials that have been pre-empted by all the political ones :)
There's a lot riding on this election, two different philosophies on how to create jobs, get our economy back, woman's rights etc. It's one of the most important elections we've had in this country.
