Signs to start worrying
Myself ^ | 11/02/2004 | Myself

Posted on 11/02/2004 3:09:07 PM PST by billybudd

Some early signs that we may be in trouble:

1. On CNBC, when asked about voting irregularities, the Bush spokesman mentioned several incidents and implied a contested election.

2. On CNBC, when asked the same question, the Kerry spokesman said he didn't see any irregularities and didn't expect a contested election.

3. The Republican spokespeople are starting to talk about "We will still have a Republican congress."

4. Tradesports futures and the DOW are down. Maybe manipulation, maybe a sign of trouble.

Still, I don't think it's time to quite panic.

This is all B.S. Nobody, repeat, NOBODY knows what is happening in the polls. Until actual results start coming in, just chill. This crap just panics everyone around here.

The Dems do not see any irregularities because they are the ones perpetrating them.

Pfft.. This is nothing.

Remember the panic around 2000.. We were on suicide watch from 3:00pm until Midnight.


Things look better than they did then.

Votes haven't been counted yet. In fact, voting is still going on. Polls are still open. RELAX!!!

Please stop this - if you'd like I think there's a Nervous Nelly thread here somewhere for this kind of thing to be posted...

This is completely counterproductive though...

The Dow is down because of "internet rumors"--i.e., Drudge and Zogby's special sauce polls.

Then why did you feel compelled to post this? You are no different than the others that want to discourage.

Stop all of this negative posting. Such posted crap can do nothing but discourage people from voting. Grow a set and get a backbone man.

No need to worry. It doesn't do a famn thing if you do. Many of working people, people who have jobs, many of them men will vote for Bush when they get off from work.

Exactly. Frankly, even if Kerry wins, we will survive due to the GOP Congress...both House and Senate...keeping the little bastard accountable.

But, we will win.

Yeah, I remember that. Sheesh, I thought my monitor was going to start crying there was so much moaning, wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Chill out, people--you'll reduce stress and live longer.

I was getting ready to go cast my vote, but once I read your brilliant article, I've decided to just stay at home and cry, knowing it would have been a wasted vote anyway.

Don't read alot into this crap. That's exactly what it is.

It ain't over till it's over (Thanks Yogi). Write some nice prose about good stuff. Have another libation eat a nice dinner, hug your wife and kids and CHILL! We're in for a long night. Getting all upset now only wastes energy. Remember, MSM will lie, trolls will lie, everybody is going to lie (on the other side). The TRUTH is in the count. Be your heart not be troubled. Have another libation, if you wish, but relax!

Nope--we'll still have a Republican senate--as long as turncoats like Chaffee and Co. don't switch.

Drudge also says Kerry's people are "giddy." How I hate to think of those smug creeps winning this thing.

In any case, there seems to be plenty of evidence that these so-called exit polls are not accurate. Let's hope not.
