Ok, now we get to hear why Romney lost. Already listening to it right now.

I have a feeling this race is only heating up for ETM, lol. Go Johnson, Go!

Glad Romney finally gave a concession speech. He was pretty gracious about it. My guess is he was so assured of his victory, and yet the EC is a landslide against him, that it took awhile for him to compose himself. Either way, let's hope everyone takes his advice and works together starting tomorrow.

I just find it fascinating that after 2 years and both Republicans and Democrats having spent a total of $6 billion dollars in this election, who controls the White House, the Congress, and the Senate has remained unchanged.

I hope the super PACs are clamped down on after this election. No matter which side of the aisle you stand on, it got way ridiculous on both sides.

Keeping those death row prisoners on death row costs us over $100 million a year than life imprisonment.

I still think we should have a deterrent, but if Prop 34 comes up again in next election, I'll consider it.

I said in my original post that I don't think death penalty should be used excessively, so only very violent criminals like Ted Bundy should be on death row. However, if we don't have it, then they'll just live out their life regardless of how many people they have murdered. I do consider myself to be a left-of-middle Democrat and this is one issue that I know libs are usually against but I'm for it.

Small gains for Democrats in both most likely, while the Republicans got gains in terms of the presidential election(Popular vote and won back 2 states)

Same here.

Capital punishment and illegal immigration are my two "conservative" issues.

That is a sickening amount that could be better used elsewhere. However, atleast it gets pumped back into the economy (TV, and radio stations, and newspapers mainly). So atleast there's that. Other than that though, you're right. Lots of noise for only a few seats shifting around.

Thought it might be worth it if Michelle Bacchman loses her seat, heh.

This is a continuation thread, the old thread is Here

We had a thread like this in 2008 and it was pretty popular. We are now one week out from election day. Early voting is taking place across the country. Has anyone taken part in early voting? Are any of you volunteering for a political campaign? Are you waiting to cast your vote on election day? Is anyone planning on attending or hosting an election night "watch party"?

This thread is for all things general election and election day! (Including crowd reports and the results!)

Discuss. :yay:

Wow, the old thread maxed out quick. Just waiting for Obama to stop being lazy and give his speech, and I can finally switch off of the news, lol.

Obama needs to come out, say "Sharia Law starts Jan 20 beeyotches!" and then just walk away.

I'll miss Dick Lugar in the Senate, only because I love his name.

Hollywood is happy today. Their guy won.

I'm surprised to hear word of actual increases in the voting rates among younger demographics. The apathy towards the process and the ambivalence towards the candidates that I've observed would not point to it. Good to hear regardless.

Ironically the people who fear America having Sharia Law probably would love most aspects of it governing us. lol

Just look at the reader comments on the FOX News site. You are right, Marvelo.
