      Actually, I have heard that, except about if Obama wins, right here on the hubpages. They were saying how they would never get behind him, the country would stay divided and never heal if he goes back in. I find it disgusting and shameful on both sides! We have lost our manners in this country! The office of President of th United States used to be honored and respected whether you were a D or an R ! It's disgusting the acceptable behavior of today!

        I agree. No matter who wins, we Americans should all remember that we're Americans. We can disagree with our leaders without being nasty.

        What you heard is true.  People respect the office but not Obama.  People have to earn respect Tammy and Obama is quite lacking.

          Well, JS, Govenor Perry more than once spoke of the idea of secession. Who are the people that say "lets take the country back"? The rightwingers are natural anarchists and insurrectionists who accept the idea of popular sovereignty only as long as they get what they want. Since when have the left been its equal since the 1960/s?

            Secession isn't rioting Credence.  When joining the union Texas reserved the right to secede.  We here in Texas understand that right.  Evidently you don't?

              FP, So you emphasize and preserve that so called right to do what would be treason for any of the other 49 states. What prompts this at this time in over almost 170 years since statehood? Is it the Black Socialist president?.  If you see yourself as a 'whole 'nother country' maybe that is what you should return to, and Oklahoma will probably want to come along with you? I find the concept provocative, in itself, even though that may well be your Texas style.

                How are you my friend.

                Just want to point out a quick fact here, talk about Texas leaving goes back to when Ann Richards(D) was Governor. Rick Perry was making strong serious statement of leaving when Bush was President. So you see, it has nothing to do with Obama. I am sure the talk will continue if Romney wins as well. 

                There are many reasons behind the movement and honestly Cred, some make really good sense. But in reality, I do not see that move ever happening.

                  liberalism in America is synonymous with mob violence. The Weathermen, Green peace (laughable name), Eco terrorists, PETA, SEIU, and OWS are anything but peaceful movements.
                  Lets see now, who was throwing the hoses on the protesters? Oh yeah the liberals, George Wallace, Bull Connor, Orval Faubus. All Democrats. And of course the head of the malicious mob of peaceful protesters, Republican Martin Luther King.
                  The closest thing America has seen to mob of the French revolution is the race riots of the sixties which were lead by far left liberal Democrats. Starting with idiot protesters at U.C. Berkeley firebombing buildings and attacking police in 1964, along with (of course) violent protests at Obama's old stomping grounds, Columbia University. Home of the Frankfurt School for Marxism.
                  For liberals guys like Reverend Al Sharpton after inciting numerous riots and spewing out racist rhetoric you get your own prime time spot on MSNBC.
                  Just look at the assassination attempts on government officials which have been carried out by some left leaning lunatic. John Wilks Booth hated Republicans, Charles J Guiteau (who shot President Garfield) had a long relationship with the "Oneida community", Leon Gonzales (who killed President McKinley) was a socialist, Guisseppe Zangara (who plotted to assassinate Hoover) despised capitalism, Lee Harvey Oswald- Commie, Lynette Fromme tried to kill Ford because "The government declared war on the left" Robert Kennedy was killed because he supported Israel, senator Leo Ryan was killed by a left wing cult, on and on and on. The Arab world is currently on fire and the president and his cabinet gives them all a high five for random acts of mob "justice".

                    You guys are both just so hilarious, please don't stop. John Wilkes Booth was a confederate loyalist hardly a leftist movement.

                    Want to talk terrorist groups? Alpha 66, Army of God, Aryan Nations, KKK, The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord, The Order, The Phineas Priesthood.

                    Attacks? Bath bombings Michigan killed 40, Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people, the Austin IRS attack, Knoxville Unitarian Church Shooting not to mention several killings of abortion doctors and abortion clinics bombings.

                    By numbers of victims or numbers of groups or numbers of attacks it's the right with a solid lead.

You people disgust me with your obvious distortions of the facts, where you insult all by presenting it as if it has any credibility whatsoever. Is it any wonder that the political right are seen as nutcases discredited by more and more demographics across the country?.

      @PP LOL That is too funny. Oddly though, pretty accurate. It is just a scare tactic. They used it to try to influence the OJ jury. They used it to try to influence the outcome of the officers in the Rodney King case. They are using it in the Zimmerman case as well. Now, they will use it to try to get the American people to change their vote. Let them riot if Romney wins. And let them pay the consequences as well.

        So, you really are scared of liberals?  LOL

        I was trying to make a point about JS' headline about how "the left is gonna riot."  It isn't "the left"; it is a few testosterone-fueled (to use Habee's concept) hot heads tweeting and posting because it makes them feel puffed-up and less powerless.

        It happens at every election and our primary response should be to publicly ignore it and quietly work toward discouraging and preventing violence from either side.

          @PP Nah, I'm not scared of liberals. I meant that is the idea behind the tactic of riot threats. If you read the twitter responses, I think perhaps only about 1% (if even that many) of  them are serious and the rest poking fun. I don't recall threats of violence at every election though. Protests, perhaps, but not violence.

I've voted both ways, because I am an Independent, but this election has turned me completely against voting Republican, because of the tactics used.

          @barbara kay If you actually read the link, you'll see that JS isn't saying anything. The liberals are saying it all themselves. You might do a little research into things before you use the "lie" word even though I know it's a popular rhetoric theme with Obama these days. You'll see there's a whole lot of lying coming out of this Administration as a whole.

      Not sure if you were speaking to me, but it is not about what I believe, it is about fact:
      "Significantly nonexistent afterwards was rioting, looting and burning of businesses, or attacks on hapless victims. After all, a black man had received justice, so-called.

      Not so when the jury in the trial of police officers involved in the beating of defiant motorist Rodney King in Los Angeles failed to elicit the verdicts minorities were clamoring for.

      In the days following that trial, blacks and Hispanics took to the streets of the L.A. basin killing, burning, rampaging, and robbing, feeling “they” had been denied justice..."

      That is a FACT. That is what happened. Referenced in an article by a Black writer warning of the same if Zimmerman is not convicted.

      source: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-blo … 4976/posts

      It is an "if you don't do what we want you to do we will burn and pillage" threat.

    I think some of you men here are experiencing testosterone poisoning. BOTH sides have violent fringe groups. Of course, the ones from the right are usually better armed. You know, the 2nd Amendment and all...lol

    I'm sure (and I fervently HOPE) that for the most part, talk about riot and rebellion is just that - talk. Remember all the Americans who were going to leave the country if Obama won in 2008? Most of them are still here. I really hate to say this, but I don't think the average citizen will see a huge difference, regardless of who wins the election. I support Romney, but I'm not expecting him to be able to implement major changes IF he were to somehow win. We still have that pesky little thing called "Congress."

      I agree with you.  Our government has been sold out to the highest bidder.  It doesn't matter who wins.  The special interests and  corporations are running the country in their best interests.  We no longer have a democracy that is representation by the people.  It's representation by which big moneyed interest is paying the most for a politicians campaign.

      Or, perhaps Obama could have compromised instead of the myway or the highway attitude.  Someone had to stall this abysmal failure of an administration!  It is not like the Democrats were wiling to compromise!

      The media hype has become bigger than the election itself.   The campaign should start and finish in six weeks, and there should be free TV access to both candidates. And it should be illegal to publish poll numbers.  Matt Taibbi

      Instead we hear this constant horse race mentality,  relentless back and forth carnage between the candidates, and millions of dollars are spent on further dividing our country.  I know family members who won't speak to each other.   We need to find a better way of electing our President.

      A one day primary for both parties would be one way to fix a lot of this mess. If it was all over in one day it would sure beat what we have now.

      You know I've always wondered what we don't see on CNN when they show Obama or Romney over and over for 12 hours. What earth shaking story are we missing.

      And " Movingout " I agree with you 100 percent. All the money spent on this could be used for fixing our roads , creating jobs and many other things.

      I don't trust either of our great political parties. I think we should be allowed to vote for none of the above. A couple of wins by none of the above might change a few things.
