I guess I could always have a stack of notes stacked away for such a reason?

It isn't that I don't like you guys, my brothers and sisters, it's I'm just sick of being forced to participate in all the nonsense. Not asked to participate, not asked to donate, but FORCED to. I'm really reaching my breaking point and I'd just rather get away from it all.

Romney will win.
*Stock markets close up 8-10%
*Business will begin hiring.
*Foreign countries will calm the fuck down and not kill our people without retribution.
*China will take a very, very deep breath and calmly begin needed reforms.
*Fox will still find something to freak out about.
*MSNBC will cry racism and gay bashing!
*I will go to bed a happy man, wealthy man.
*Al Gore will still be a billionaire.
*G.W. Bush will still be the greatest American president since Reagan.
*Clinton will begin her race for 2016 (She will get my vote unless Rice runs)
*Obama will go down as the biggest joke in American history for squandering the greatest opportunity for true change since the civil war. Pathetic, weak leader....

God bless America!

PS: Their will be a few small riots led by the MSNBC craziest but it won't amount to much.

I predict scientists will go back and try to figure out why Romneybot 2.0 failed - though at least he stopped killing homeless people at night.

If Obama wins, Fox News will immediately cry foul and demand investigations.

There are risks associated with being stationed in a foreign country. Just as you cannot rely on a nuclear response, you cannot rely on any other.

This is the exact opposite of what you state in your OP. So were you lying then or lying now? Either way, you're an America hating puss pocket.

This is my OP:

There are but two outcomes. Either Obama wins or Romney wins.

If Obama wins, what do you think will happen the night of the election?

If Romney wins, what will happen?



If Obama wins I opine nothing will happen.

If Romney wins I opine there will be slow but growing riots. Anyway this is my hope. I hope Romney wins and I hope there are mass riots. Why? It would be fun to watch.



p.s., If Romney wins I bet the MSM will still not focus on the cover up of the Benghazi failure and the betrayal of the Americans in harm's way by this President.

I see your confusion. I was assuming that the statement "go back to sticking their thumbs up their asses while watching the newest garbage on TV" was referring to the red neck righties watch Honey Boo Boo and the like. I agree with you. It was a poor assumption on my part. I am sorry for the confusion.

To clear things up.....If Romney wins I expect and hope there will be riots. Why? It would be fun to watch.


There, does that help clear up the situation for you?

Yes, yes it does. You're a lying American hating puss pocket. Now that that is settled maybe you might consider doing our nation a favor and go lance yourself.

If Obama wins the plutocrats eat lobster, truffles and caviar, Romney wins they eat Filet Mignon, truffles and caviar.

If Romney loses the invasionary force from Kolob will have to be put on hold.

I can only see this thread as evidence of either senility or desperation. No decent American would wish for rioting in this country, regardless of the outcome of the election. As it happens I don't believe a Romney win would lead to any significant rioting, nor would I want that.

OP, if memory serves you have previously predicted that Romney will win with 320 electoral votes. Are you still predicting that? If so, please show us your electoral map. Here is my prediction:

How? Go to http://www.270towin.com and build your map, then show it to us. I don't see any remotely plausible scenario that would lead to that outcome.

Don, this guy is a bored troll who just says whatever he thinks will get a rise out of people, and never actually thinks through anything. He's been repeating this stupid line about Romney winning with 320 EV, without justification, for weeks.

I mean -- look at your own signature.

I predict that order on this forum will be restored...after a few months of bitching about either candidate winning. After that, we can go back to talking about Trayvon Martin or something...

Kinda disappointing this election cycle though, the batshit crazies that usually pop up and get banned were quite low this time. We are stuck with our boring assorted talk radio parrot type nuts. So predictable.

Here is one way it could go.



This is a less than optimal result, but Obama still wins.
