Election Day 2016 - Come watch the world end!

You c***s.

Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

I'll start off with something I saw from a Yankee this morning:

Quote
Eastwooding: \east-wood-ing|
*noun, sometimes adjective

1) when you ramble on, go off message, speak to an empty chair, mystifying the Interwebs;

2) a Hollywood endorsement gone awry;

3) not a good thing

Still not heard it yet!

At least Obama's not made a laughing stock out of your country.  The fact Mitt is as successful as he's been ripples with ridicule around the world.

IM not sure how anything can change, they've set it up in such away that no one can really get in there and make some serious changes for the better.

I suppose an independent could do that but would they ever get the voters behind them.

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time for human soul

I'll give you analysis without even watching that video;

Probably.

But it doesn't change the fact that he is what I said he is.

I mean, it's not a foregone conclusion, but it's quite hilarious mental anyone thinks the Republicans will win.  Everyone did the same the last time around.  There's literally nothing to suggest it other than the fear of it.  Talk to the Yanks, they'll tell you this.

Factions within the Republican base don't even want Mitt, and not just on the basis that they wanted someone else, but on the grounds that they don't like him or his story, and the way he's handled his tax returns issue.

I'm generally very moderate and tend to say my true political alliance is practicality.  Whatever is in the best interests of my country at that given intersection and 4 year outlook is the way I vote.  The current administration has p*ssed off more people than you could ever imagine.  I haven't the slightest clue who will win to be honest.  And it DEF can go either way, this is by no means a landslide for the current administration man. These next 60ish days are going to be f***ing massive.
