anyone want to call the race?

Huff says obama- Drudge says mitt.

The question is not who you will vote for- but who will "win".

I say Obama.
It almost looked to me that Romney wasn't really running to win. If he was indeed, his campaign was horribly managed. Alienating the Ron Paul electorate basicly ended Romney's chances anyway. Even his own company's (Bain Capital) employees have given more money to Obama than to him. The GOP establishment seems to be ok with another 4 years of Obama, because they know that 2016 would be a done deal for any Republican (even for an idiot like Jeb Bush). They don't really trust Romney anyway, because of his father and the fact that he is rich and can't be as easily intimidated as somebody like Gingrich or Santorum.
Additionally, as Ron Paul supporters have so painfully realized, getting out the vote is crucial. Obama has outraised Romney nearly 2:1. He has huge firepower in the swing states. Put the "excellent Sandy response" (US msm pundits say so) by Obama into the mix and you get the picture. The stock market and various economic figures were also clearly fudged for Obama in anticipation of the election.

In essence, I think it's 4 more years of Obama - not that it would make a big difference if Romney would win. It's basicly death by socialism (O) vs death by crony facism (R).

Romney by no less than 3% and as much as 10% of the popular vote.

the only 'winners' will be those connected to the control of money.

The whole democratic process is a sham designed to distract the masses and let them think they have a say in things.

If i was going to vote in a UK election it would be for Nigel Farage's lot, who are a pretty hopeless bunch anyway.

The best vote is to vote not to allow gov into your life at every sensible opportunity.

Oh and watch out you traitorous preppers, whoever wins -

It is a 50/50 chance.
Identical to flipping a coin.
It may come out heads or tails, but is still the same damn coin.

Obama is leading in Ohio and Florida. If he takes both, is his win a done deal?

And that's almost unbelievable (ancona being without words). I've done a pretty outstanding job side-stepping taxes by adjusting how I live, but I don't see how I get out of Obamacare, which will about 10x my medical costs...

Yes, been in the hospital twice and doctors once in the last decade or so, and those were expensive. Many years in a row (including most of the other 40 years) - nothing whatever - which brings that average way way below what's about to hit us.

Can I register as a not-human or something so this crap won't apply to me? They're not taxing my animals yet, I'm an animal after all. And often I don't honestly feel like part of the human race anyway - they all seem so slow and stupid (present company excepted of course).

I'm sure you've intimate connections to the Obama camp which means you have the possibility to request a waiver, like those which were granted to luxury hotels, gourment restaurants and nightclubs in Nancy Pelosi's congressional district: http://dailybail.com/home/flashback-...urants-ni.html

SA,
I can only dream of getting a waiver. I am now having to compete on smaller projects with guys who are not burdened with this onerous and massive additional cost of doing business. Our G&A will go up by around six to eight percent by early calculations, putting me out of the running for over thirty percent of the work I usually win, because smaller competitors [not better qualified mind you, just smaller] will not have the burden of compliance with this new and wonderful socialist mandate.

My firm will be measured not by how often we have large payroll, but simply if we have had payroll over the threshold for compliance anytime within the last eighteen months.

I am beyond consolation with this mindless fucking boondoggle, dreamed up by wealthy demotards who NEVER think things through to their ultimate conclusion.

Ancona, sad to hear about the unintended (?) consequences of Obamacare.

Just an idea, I haven't really thought about it in detail nor do I know the specifics of Obamacare: What about "downsizing" your business by disintegrating it into a number of corporations/partnerships with less employees? E.g., one entity for sales, another for accounting, a third for execution. As far as I understand, you have the burden to comply with O.care because of the size of your business. So if you'd split it up into pieces, you might be able to circumvene some regulations?
