    Who do you think will win today? It seems neck and neck. I wonder if we'll know tonight or not till tommorrow sometime?
    Have all of you voted? This was my first year to do the mail in ballot. I hope it still counts. I hope there will be no ballot fraud.

            I'd like to tell you, but it might be a violation of TOS. Reason being you can actually buy/sell stock shares on today's outcome. They even talked about it on FOX news. Some people might perceive that as gambling, never mind that the actual stock market is 10 times worse... I'm tired of being forum banned, so I can't take the risk. smile

      Actually Obama is anti SOPA.

        This article argues that SOPA is down but not out.

        If this is the case, and Obama is re-elected, I think it'll go through. There's simply too much lobbying pressure, and without the other pressure of re-election there's nothing to stop it really. Obama was similarly 'against' NDAA just before the passed it last Christmas - him coming out against something, with his less-than-impressive history, is not very convincing.

          Regardless of your personal opinion if someone says they are against something and promises to veto it which effectively stopped the bill then you can't say they are pro that thing it's blatantly wrong.

            Mostly it's just not taking a liar's word for anything. If only the left would apply this concept to Obama as much as they do Romney.

    I want Romney to win. But I'm only too aware of being beaten up by Obama-ists for choosing Romney over Obama. Obama has had four years to make a difference to the world. I wonder if he has done anything all that useful. The economic crisis all over the world has gotten worse. If Obama stays in the whitehouse he could sleepwalk the world into the worst depression the world has ever seen. American will never be the country Obama is trying to create. Socialist ideas are for soviet states and communist countries. Socialism in america is not working. Obama looks like a sore thumb lost for direction.

      Well if Romney wins we will go back in time and woman will have no choices over their health care(reversing Roe Vs.Wad) and only the top 1% of the ubber wealthy will profit. All the rest of us will be screwed, with paying more taxes, no help with student loans(remember Romney said "ask your parents")...banks will have no regulations, interest rates will have no ceiling....No FEMA when there are disasters (let everyone fend for themselves Romney said and deal with it in state)...we will be screwed beyond belief....

    I still say Obama is going to win. The House will remain R, and the Senate will remain D. Will anything get done? It wouldn't have changed with a Romney win, either.

      Kind of depressing that nothing might change. A commentator on BBC was saying that the Congress will move more to the right and even Romney would have trouble dealing with them if elected.

    Give me a moment here and I'll comment on this election.  I feel a volcano rumbling.
    Well, I'm breaking my silence.  I'm at a point in my life where everything has changed, nothing is as it seems and I'm struggling to make ends meet.   I lost my dream job in April 2011; fired.  Since then haven't been able to obtain another job as good or as much $$$$.  Slap in the face? heck yeah!  15 year marriage.....spouse says, oh never mind, I'm through, whatever!!     Feel self-defeated?   You're doggone right I do!  I'm coming out fighting...#^&&%^@%^.
    But now, I'm blasting so mark this in your Guinness book as the day donotfear let it out of the bag.

    I never comment one way or another on political threads.  I don't care now....if Hubbers call me disgusting (as happened) or mock me for believing in God.   Go ahead, make my day.  Guess what, Christians can say kiss my arss too, they get mad, some curse, some don't.  Some think crap is a bad word, others don't.   

    I believe in God and country and freedom.   NOT government control, not government controlled healthcare.  I don't want somebody in charge of us who was never raised on this soil, but off in the Pacific islands, or Hawaii or wherever.   I don't give a rats butt if the conservative was born rich with a silver spoon in his mouth.  Big deal.  He's has something that got him where he is!

    I don't want to be controlled by government.  I made this comment on Facebook yesterday:

    "I want a strong leader with high morals who believes in traditional family values, Biblical principals and business sense.  I want a strong leader who will stand up to the bullies, come out fighting, and stand up for our long time allies.  I want somebody who can say NO to the enemy, accept terrorists for what they are and refuse to "sit down and talk" with terrorists, who would just as soon lop off your head as to listen to you. "

    For this comment, I received the following private message from someone who blocked me:

    ' Wow, you are amazingly stupid. LOL '

    Get my drift?  So, yeah, I'm one of those radical right wingers who has a gun and wants traditional family values to be first and foremost.  Oh, by the way, my brother is gay, an Obama supporter and I love him and don't judge him either  I want him to be happy, I never bash him, or condemn him either.  Surprised? 

    Hahaha.  My son and daughter in law are total left wing liberals.  So what, they live where everyone drives a Toyota Prius and has an Obama sticker on their car.  Do I blast them?  NO.  I love em, don't preach at em or anything.  But gosh a mighty, both my brother and son have talked DOWN to me for what I believe.  Do I fight with em?  Nope, just sit there and take it.

    So there you have it, donotfear has blasted the top off a volcano, spilled my guts to all who I think are  my friends, been around here a long time (4 years +)   Try to keep peace...but.  I feel like I just had a giant colon cleanse.

            How pathetic to see this gamesmanship on something so insignificant as hubpages.  I've no doubt that Romney would or will make a very capable concession speech -- what is pathetic and anti-American and for me, simply Anti any future for our country as we've known it -- is the likes of you and your insidious, in the true sense of the word, penetration of the elderly and of this country with fear.  Those folks worked their butts off like none on the dole now can comprehend,  that 47% on the dole now, have rarely worked a full month of their sorry lives to get that dole those old folks worked to make available to them.   Shame and shame and shame on you all............

                  I voted for Romney. I drove someone 40 miles (round trip) to vote. I donated money to Romney. I drove 200 miles to see Romney. We lost. Why should I not be friends with UW? My best friend is a liberal Dem. Politics is just someone's opinion, and we're all allowed to have our opinions. That's why we vote. That's what democracy is all about.
