A split between the electoral and popular vote

*fingers crossed*

When they start arresting the stupid, farking teabaggers for harassing people for IDs in states that have no voter ID laws, then, it might get a little ugly.

Seriously. You see one of these morons, have them arrested. It's kind of your civic duty, ya know.

The news breaks tomorrow with proof positive that Obama was born in Kenya.

Seriously, I wish that would actually happen, because I'd love to see how that would pan out. Too bad it won't, as he was clearly born in Hawaii, but that would be fun to see.

The Romney family is actually investing in voting machines in Ohio to rig it for Obama. Mitt is using the campaign as one last money grab; once Obama is re-elected, Mittens and his rich friends start firing people and tanking the economy. Civil War 2 erupts as the religious right starts attacking those damn liberals who re-elected a president so near.

Meanwhile, the rich folk hop on their planes and fly to their private islands to wait out the end of the war and return to buy up emerging companies, amassing even more wealth, at which point they request a rewriting of the Constitution establishing a ruling class as the country descends into fuedalism.

You ever wonder that Mitt bought shares on Intrade on Obama winning just so he'd have a massive payout when it happens? I'd do that if I was running :D

I just hope the dems stay the centrist party. It is the best way to marginalize the nuts on both sides.

Plus, here is to hoping that on day 1 of President Obama's second term, that he massively trolls the nuts:
signs an executive order decriminalize drugs
forces the DEA to spend all of its resources for education and treatment
wears a taqiyah to his inauguration
requires all states to use optical scanner ballots and provides funding to replace equipment in big cities only

brokers a lasting peace deal between palestine and israel, which is embraced by muslims everywhere

That they are. But what if he really WAS born in Kenya? (note: purely hypothetical, I am well aware that he was not) And what if it were proven beyond a shadow of a doubt? He's already been President for the better part of a term and is on the ballot once again. What would happen? How would that play out? It certainly would be interesting.

You would probably need to start with nuking Jerusalem and Gaza first.

There will never, ever be peace between these two groups. They have been fighting since day 1.
Even if religion disappeared overnight, they would find something else to fight over.

We could probably broker a relative peace and two state system. It could work until one gets greedy for the other. But there could be a clause in the treaty that if anyone tries to forcibly take the other, the entire world would blow them to oblivion instantaneously, including the USA and the Middle East.

I'd support that

After roughly two years of campaigning, a deluge of campaign ads, and enough media coverage of President Obama and Mitt Romney to make a four-year-old cry, most Americans would really like the presidential election to come to an end on November 6.


Americans aren't the only ones. STFU already.

that's what i still don't get about birthers.

i was born in the UK to an american mother and a british father. i have a state department birth certificate that proves that i am a "natural-born" american. as would obama, had he been born in kenya. it's academic, of course, because he was born on US soil in the great state of hawaii, but still...

My Republican state representative lives three houses down from me, so pretty much every house on my block has his signs on the yard, except mine. I'm not stupid enough to put an Obama sign being surrounded by so much red, especially should he win.

It also doesn't bode well for us considering we're a young, interracial couple.
 
2012-11-02 09:25:21 AM
I honestly expect intimidation by armed anti-Obama folks in southern areas. I expect rampant refusal to let minorities and likely democratic folks vote due to "confusion" over voter ID laws. Florida will fark up their vote royally. I expect a recount even if it isn't close. Regardless of who wins accusations of voter/election fraud and conspiracy will be major issues. Fox News will site a single instance as justification for thousands of disenfranchised voters.

I also expect that regardless of who wins things will generally go on as normal. They hyper partisan platforms will be cancelled out by a stagnation defense by the minority party and we will continue down the path of plutocracy.

Are you asking for a realistic worst-case scenario?

Romney wins and enacts his vision of America's future.
 
2012-11-02 09:27:49 AM
The worst scenario would be listening to cry-baby whines about election fraud for the next several years. From either side.

If people just go and vote with their three pieces of photo ID and have a little patience with the fingerprinting line we can have faith the system will work.

The thing is even if we had the technology Republicans wouldn't allow it. It would be the end all way to ensure voter fraud can't happen, but the amount of Republican voters who fear Big Brother and wouldn't show up to the voting booth would cripple the GOP.

2012-11-02 09:32:51 AM
The vice president, meanwhile, would be decided by the Senate - which Democrats are expected to maintain narrowly after Election Day. That raises the possibility of Romney taking the presidency but seeing the vice presidential slot go not to his running mate, Paul Ryan, but instead to the man who currently holds that office: Joe Biden.

Would the Senate be restricted to voting only between Biden and Ryan? A Romney/Obama administration would be epic lulz.

Sybarite: A split between the electoral and popular vote

*fingers crossed*


It was serve the Republican's right because they opposed any changes in their 2012 platform:

The Continuing Importance of Protecting the Electoral College
We oppose the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact or any other scheme to abolish or distort the procedures of the Electoral College. We recognize that an unconstitutional effort to impose "national popular vote" would be a mortal threat to our federal system and a guarantee of corruption as every ballot box in every state would become a chance to steal the presidency.

The prevailing view among birthers is this: Barack Obama (and yourself) are citizens, but not natural born citizens. Natural born citizenship requires that both of your parents be American citizens. The location of your birth does not matter - even if he was born in Hawaii (which he probably wasn't), the genetic loyalty to Kenya and the British Empire passed down to him by his father make him ineligible for the Presidency.

Of course, they also believe that his mom was a slut and that his real father was some communist black guy who actually was an American citizen. That would seem to disprove their 'two citizen parents' theory - but really, you knew they were gonna divide by zero eventually.

Ensure that our party would become obsolete because rural white bigots wouldn't get weighted votes through the electoral college.

There was a booth selling those but they said Obama on them needless to say he was on the phone to his supervisors immediately. Don't know the outcome but he was pretty pissed off and he is as conservative as they get.

A team of Romney/RNC-backed lawyers are getting their rest....at least one in every fifty states of our Union. And boy, will they need it. Inside their briefcases are all the forms you could ever need to file in order to contest an election based on any reason you could ever imagine. It's been a long years worth of prepping for it all and on Tuesday they will wake from their slumber and will watch election results to see where they need to spring into action.

This is what the future looks like.

Ha! SURE they would! It's not like the Republican House would place party over country, and install Mittens as president against the will of the people. Maybe we could let the Supreme Court decide.
