No - since corporations are PEEPLE:

Secretary of Interior: Exxon/Mobil
Secretary of State: Bain Capital
Secretary of Energy: British Petroleum
Secretary of Education: Disney
Secretary of H/HS: DuPont

... and so on.

I don't "adore" Obama. At all. I am a liberal.

He's a center-right president. His USFWS has delisted gray wolves, which are now being hunted pell-mell. That's a big no-no. No true liberal president would allow the various egregious environmental insults Obama has allowed.

However.

I'm voting for Obama because voting for Romney is a vote for:

- War with Iran
- Discrimination against gays and lesbians
- Discriminatory Mormon policy-making in the White House
- Open mocking of climate science and climate change
- A war on women's rights to choice, family-planning, fair-pay
- The Ryan Plan
- Vouchercare
- Slashed funding for national parks

Et cetera.

Obama were to lose, Democrats would suddenly be leaderless for the first time in half a decade and would be forced to confront agonizing questions about the viability of their party's agenda - health care reform, most of all.

In other words, the Democrats will learn exactly the wrong message. They will assume that the centrist Democrat was "too liberal" and will lurch back to the "center" like they always do. The problem isn't the message, it's that the party as a whole isn't bold enough to defend.

In reality, very little will change. Republicans will certainly not have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, and unless we have another 9/11 the minority will not just roll over like they did for Bush.

So in the unlikely scenario that Mitt does win, there will be no Iran invasion, no Obamacare repeal, no medicare vouchers, no new abortion laws, no radical overhaul of our taxes. Congress will not abide. Unfortunately, the same thing will be true when Obama does get re-elected.

Either way, it's going to be four more years of a do-nothing congress.

If Romney wins politicians on both sides of the political spectrum in America, and abroad, will have confirmation that a campaign based almost entirely on lies can successfully win the presidency.

If you think this election was bad wait until the folks in power confirm the Romney strategy is a viable option.

Regardless of who wins we'll lose 3/4 of the alt population.

Mentat: Obama were to lose, Democrats would suddenly be leaderless for the first time in half a decade and would be forced to confront agonizing questions about the viability of their party's agenda - health care reform, most of all.

I'm gonna go with a brainwashed electorate and a bunch of people who aren't voting, either because they hate both sides but can't figure out how to change the system, or because they simply don't bother to vote because they are lazy.

People in this country, on the whole, are dumb, ignorant motherfarkers.

I was watching the Will Ferrell movie The Campaign the other day. I said, "See those two guys? They are basically the Koch brothers." My sister, who college-educated and pretty smart, said, "Who?" I then had to explain to her how two billionaires basically created the Tea Party using AFP as a front for their anti-tax anti-regulation anti-labor bullsh*t.

In other words, people just don't know anything in the US. They are uneducated, low information people, driven by the media's perception. And even high information people are swayed by the media.

The idiocracy is here, and nicely controlled by the plutocracy.

If Obama loses, Mitt Romney will inherit the authority Obama and his lawyers granted to the executive to kill Americans overseas without due process. Do you really want that psychopath having that authority?
