US Presidential Election Results thread

 
I don't know what you're referring to but I'll point out that Lincoln is known to have exchanged letters with a male Hooker.... I find that appalling and can't support him.

The Republican party is 92% white in a country where the white majority is only 78% nationally. That doesn't mean the party as a whole is racist, but it does mean that the Republican party has a smaller share of racial minority votes than it should (if politics were simply ideological). That puts a racial spin on national elections even when a black man isn't running.

If on the other hand Obama manages to win, I see a massive sales boost for firearms and ammunition manufacturers, a cry on the right of descent into socialism and/or communism, and a (still) locked congress.
The state of america is truely sad. I don't fully agree, but the loudest voices will cirtainly spout this insanity.

Training Sir. The lads aren't ready yet. They need more training. Maybe in a few years they'll be ready to march on Richmond.

Only point I would dissent is the word massive to describe teh boost in sales for firearms and ammunition.
Well, that and I don't agree Romney will win...

Why do we keep acting surprised when this happens every election cycle? The issues might change but politics has always been dirty and conniving.
