    Voting is the best revenge! (Election results 2012)

    So election day is upon us Americans! Supposedly this is becoming a real nail-biter.

    Personally, I think that while it may not be a landslide, Rombot will secure a substantial victory, perhaps even one resounding enough to even make the Socialists in charge of the Democrat Party lick their wounds for a month or two. The reason I think this is going to happen is summed up well by a comic blogger named Jim Treacher, referencing Obama's claim that I mention as the thread title.




    • Itís revenge for being told youíre unpatriotic for wanting to keep the money youíve earned.
    • Itís revenge for being falsely accused of screaming racial epithets at Congressmen, and then being called a racist for demanding proof that never comes because it doesnít exist.
    • Itís revenge for a massive stimulus that massively failed to stimulate anything but the bank accounts of Obamaís cronies at our expense, and for shovel-ready jobs that were ďnot as shovel-ready as we expected.Ē
    • Itís revenge for putting up with a corrupt media that has abdicated its responsibilities in order to flack for the Democrats, even as the leader of the Democratic Party snubs them in favor of Letterman, The View, and ďthe Pimp with a Limp.Ē
    • Itís revenge for the years-long smear campaign against Sarah Palin and her family.
    • Itís revenge for having to hear about Big Bird, binders, bayonets, Bain, Seamus the dog, magic underpants, Sandra Flukeís sex life, and all the other distractions Obamaís supporters have had to resort to, because they canít exactly talk about his record.
    • Itís revenge for being lied to every single day, on every single issue, and then being maligned and lied about and called a racist for daring to notice.
    • Itís revenge for Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty, whose lives were sacrificed by their own government on the anniversary of 9/11, and whose murders were falsely blamed on the First Amendment because otherwise somebody might forget that Obama eventually gave the order to kill Bin Laden.
    • Itís revenge for having to listen to the 44th President of the United States blame all his failures on anyone and everyone but himself.
    • Itís revenge for ďYou didnít build that.Ē
    • Itís revenge for Obamacare.
    • Itís revenge for ďI won.Ē


    There's seething resentment and outrage on the American right, not only against THE WON but against the array of Progressive endeavours. The resentment and outrage from the Left? Well, even if it was something he could sustain for four years, he was in absolute control - and that led to the TEA Party whipping of 2010. That same anger (claimed as Racist! by the mainstream media) hasn't gone away.

    So what do you think is going to happen?

    I think that the Punch'n'Judy Show is getting ready to start another four year cycle and that the group of people who have held power over the past 50 years will remain largely unchanged. We'll get a new lead actor, or we won't get a new lead actor, but as his lines and his scripts have already been written, what's the diff?

    I'll wave a flag for Mitty, but only because of the big stick his victory will provide me with, to paddle Merv's behind with over the next four years or so. Unless Mitty gets himself impeached before the end of his first term, of course - for being a twot.

    Happy voting, folks!

    You may imagine that you're making me outraged - aside from being able to bypass the word filter with 'twot'. I'm really not, and I'm fully aware of Amercia's our own bi-polar "dance of the lemons" as noted with Bob's outrageous outrage about the RNC voter fraud scandal. In like manner, all the stops will come out regarding Rombot as the mainstream media tries in vain to reclaim relevance and the pretence of legitimacy they've lost over the last four years. The problem is that the "right" is the only group that really finds fault with the concept of a ruling elite any more - you'll recall from the astroturf that was the Occupy Wall Street movement, most of them were anti-Capitalist pro-Gov't dweebs who simply didn't articulate their message well.

    I guess I'm saying that Ron Paul and his cohorts don't exist on the Left. You have Bernie Sanders, you have a raging egomaniac, and you have a troll doll. That's not exactly the hotbed of anti-establishment mentality the Left fancies itself to be.

    I don't like your use of the microscope in these discussions, Merv. Actually, I do like it, it's fun to play with, but anywhale ...

    The Right does indeed have a problem with a "ruling elite" if it's a visible ruling elite. OTOH, they are quite happy with their old boy network ruling elite. Rule One: Move the money around and don't get caught - which is why Mitty is such a disappointment.

    It's all smoke'n'mirrors anyway. I'm just sorry that you think I am attempting to bypass the word filter in an attempt to outrage you in an outrageous fashion. I type the words I mean, the filter will have to look out for itself. It's only outwardly outrageously outraging.

    Ah. There's a 10.5% chance that Obama will retain the Presidency.



    Go, Mitty!

    If you live in North Dakota, you don't have to register, you just have to have lived there for 30 days. Oh, and you have to be known to the locals - otherwise you cannot vote.

    So, get in your damned time machine, Ash, and get your *** back to Shyteberg, ND.

    How you settling in there, by the way?

    I don't think I could be surrounded by primitive screwheads in a state that only has 12 people in it

    I still expect Obama to win. Or maybe I'm just telling myself that so I'm prepared for the worst. Either way I'm not exited about the coming 4 years.

    I also have a confession to make. I won't be voting. First time since I was 18. I moved a month or so ago and forgot to change my registration.
