Well, under which dumbass will america fall faster?

Romney or obama?

Id guess obama, since his 2nd term he will be less careful with what he does.

Romney will have to play timidly in his first term or he might lose 2nd if he starts waging wars out of the blue(lol).

There is no such thing as TPTB "rooting" for their guy. They own both candidates and select one on whatever basis.

There are factions within TPTB and they do have different ways of doing things.  I've pointed out before the teams behind foreign policy rarely change (Carter and Obama are the only deviations of the team - there are obvious operational differences in them; the left tends to be more covert and the right more gung ho).)

My rule of thumb is they don't fire the incumbent unless he's not following orders or screwed up badly in some other way.

Romney and Mitcha Daniels went to Bilderberg this year...

I am torn as to whether they have sided with him instead of the Obama (the 08 election was down to Hillary and Obama for TPTB).  Bilderberg does have a 100% attendence/presidential (or VP) winner correlation...

I originally wrote myself in but I filled out my ballot wrong. I only voted to placate my wife as she thinks a history teacher that doesn't vote is crazy. On my second ballot I wrote in Grover Cleveland. The ballot was still messed up and the poll inspector came over and saw my mistake (not connecting the arrow - a stupid way to fill a ballot). She was pissed that I voted for a dead guy. Gave me a big speech about how I'm wasting her time and then said she hoped I stubbed my toe on the way out.

@ Mtn Dew

Wow, she seriously said that?

When I pulled up in the car with my Mom so she could vote, we pulled up next to these two weirdos who were smoking right next to their baby.

You were wasting her time? Was she planning to go outside and burn ballots but she had to help you vote? What else did she think she was going to do as a poll volunteer or whatever?

The awesome part, if Florida goes to Obama, is that the number of Gary Johnson voters are the difference between Mitt winning and losing, haha.

Try watching Mitt Romney Style, I think the look alike is done much better in it.  Its sad that the news is *THAT* bad, but I guess it is that way most of the time.

I was watching Romney with more electoral votes and I was like "Oh no, I hate Romney! Go Obama!" Then Obama started winning and I'm like "Oh no, I hate Obama! Go Romney!"

Sigh.

Anenome - the popular vote will likely tilt slightly for Obama (unfortunately - I really wanted Romney to win the popular vote but Obama to win the election just so leftists would stop whining about the electoral college). The results right now are only partial. Can't trust them.

Four more years of Predator drones, Gitmo torture, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, blockbuster government healthcare... all starting from a baseline of virtual bankruptcy, nearly Great Depression-levels of unemployment. Oh wait, that was all a foregone conclusion no matter whose ass was going to warm the chair behind the desk in the oval office.

So, who thinks that the Republicans start to rail against the electoral college?  I love the prospect of the popular vote going to Romney and the electoral college going to Obama.  I looove that.

You know guys, I have to say that I'm really glad I found this forum. Without LWvM (Institute) I really wouldn't have a place to huddle in a cave with my fellow libertarians as we do our best to battle our way through a sea of idiocracy. So no matter who the military industrial complex gets as the head of the Politburo, let's keep on making threads, and fighting tyranny!
