Skip to comments.Election Day & The Day After: What are you gonna do?
Posted on 09/23/2012 9:25:03 AM PDT by hoagy62
So we know that, as good American citizens, we're all going to get out there and show the world that we care about our country's fate and vote to get that traitorous slime out of OUR White House on November 6th.
However, I'm curious....what're your plans for the day AFTER the election?
For many, they'll vote, watch the results, celebrate Obama's removal from power, and then go to work on Wednesday with a smile on our face. But....what if the results aren't so sanguine?
Is anyone planning on staying home to watch out for "things" that might happen? If Obama supporters (read 'EBT-card carrying deadbeat thugs') in the inner cities across the nation start rioting after Obama's loss, anyone going to to 'call in sick' from work to make sure families are protected?
I'm probably letting my 'tinfoil hat' side out for some exercise here, but is anyone wondering about what MIGHT happen?
I’m going to Disney World. Well, not the day after but shortly thereafter.
Celebrating my oldest grandsons birthday.
The day after the election, I’m going to be nursing my hangover. I’m getting some booze and election night I’m either going to be celebrating or drowning my sorrows.
Same thing I do every day. Try to take over the wold.
Gee, Brain...that sounds fun. Narf!
I’ll either be out buying as much ammo as I can afford OR celebrating the defeat of the ABSOLUTE WORST PRESIDENT we ever had.
I love it, Cripplecreek, you made me laugh out loud.
Try to take over the world, indeed!
If Mittens wins, I will be breathing a bit easier, If King Bozo Overtime wins, plotting a move to Texas, and hope they secede.
May I suggest we all do poll work on Election Day?
No, I haven’t arranged it yet, I suppose I’d better.
I’m a nurse, doing monthly home visits to some ghetto neighborhoods. That week happens to be the week that my ghetto visits are due. I figure things could be bad no matter who wins, so I’m tweaking my schedule to avoid it. If my supervisor insists on me going, I plan to refuse.
I'll watch TV news very late on election night after there is a winner in case riots start then. I'll watch TV news constantly the day after, to see if riots happen or not.
This is a first - before now, have never thought riots would happen after an election - that is what less civilized countries do - until now. Our country is not the country I have known all my long life.
If Romney wins, there will be riots, mass homelessness, and marches on Washington by armies of the unemployed. If Obama wins, there will be all that too, but nobody will know because the media won’t cover it.
“If my supervisor insists on me going, I plan to refuse.”
Unless your supervisor is dead in the head, he/she should understand the danger of going into a ghetto at that time.
Protect your life - you only have one. The ghetto will always be there, you might not be.
I’m gonna go to work just like I’ve been doing for 47 years. The bloodsuckers must get their big macs and cell phones after all.
If (Almighty God forbid it) the usurper wins, do as I will do: fly the Betsy Ross flag, the flag of our first Revolution.
Nothing different than what we had, after the Nov. 2008 Election, which started the accelerated downfall.
Since all of the swing states are in the East, I expect that the tea leaves will be plain to see by 9:30 or so. I'm not looking for widespread riots for a few days or more as it will take that long to gin up a good enough reason to get folks out en masse. I plan to go to bed early to beat the rush...
Depending on the outcome, tuning out of politics for the next 4 years.
We may not know who “won” the day after. It might be too close to call. I’m not looking forward to it.
If Romney wins, I`ll thank God for America`s stepping back from the brink, and praying for the healing of this broken country. The next day, I`ll go to work like any other day, but with a smile on my face.
If Obama wins, the second the election is called, I will remove my American flag from the pole out front and it will never see the light of day again until that stain is gone from office. I will pray to God for the strength to deal with the coming tribulations.
Like the passing of any loved one, I`ll also try to temper my sadness about America`s death with fond memories of the great days when she was strong and vibrant.
So what was 2010, a minor detour off the new route?
You are right about en masse riots. If there are riots election night, they will be less in number I think. If organized riots happen, that would likely start two days after the election. However, we will get a sense of the turmoil the day after.
I normally stay up until 1 or 2 in the morning, so staying up won't be difficult for me.
On Friday I saw a car with the "Work Harder: Millions on Welfare are Depending on You" bumper sticker (front bumper). This was in Berkeley, CA.
“So what was 2010, a minor detour off the new route?”
I thinks it was to a degree. The 2010 elections brought out a vocal, active subset of the electorate. Many fewer 0bama-adoring minions headed to the polls because their guy wasn`t for reelection. Now he is.
Me? That’s the wrong question. The real question is why Romney is throwing the race to Obama. All that money. All that time to prepare. All those Romney ads showing him as a stiff, rich, doofus praising Obama for being a good dad. Meanwhile, Obama ads show Romney killing seniors and blacks and selling their internal organs to other millionaires. How could Romney have been at it this long and be such a loser in the final three months? How could Romney, 45 days out, be losing every swing-state poll? Me? I’ll have another four years to figure-out WTF went wrong.
vote and gloat
Go to work, ignore the results completely, go back to work, go on with my life replete with the knowledge that we’ll have a crappy president for the next 4 years no matter what. Maybe at some point I’ll actually look up the guy’s name.
One notes the UN did pass the private gun confiscation treaty last week. Only a very thin layer of the US Senate now separates us from being Britain. Watch for a voice vote for this on confirmation.
May I suggest we all do poll work on Election Day?
No, I havent arranged it yet, I suppose Id better.
You haven’t flown our flag in 4 years because of that guy in the oval office? Wow... we’ve flown ours 24 hours a day as we have done for years. no one will keep us from ever flying the flag of our Country!!!
Haven’t heard anything about it, yet, but if there is “early voting” allowed in Louisiana, you can bet a cup of regular coffee, that I will be there!
If not, I will have to find transportation to the high school that is not in my town, and not on the transit route, due to how these morons laid out the district lines. I will be there!
Once that is done, then it is to grab “some cleaning rods and stuff”, make sure my “geek equipment” is ready with enough food, that I have my seven days of food and water, make sure my “I’ll prepare later” friend has some things, turn on one of the news channels, with no volume, the radio playing in the background, and get the popcorn.
I won’t have any need to go anywhere, the transit system might be on strike, the City Council might be agitated, and I can stay right here, and watch the fun.
Now, should Romney lose, for some darn strange unforeseen reason, I might just be placing more orders for “Geek food”, in a hurry!
I’ll be in St Barts on election day. If Owe-Bama wins, I’m not coming back.
I am taking Mond and Tuesday off work to help out the Rep campaign.
I don’t want to feel like I didn’t do everything I could the next day.

Others have suggested Romney (and the Pubbies) are “throwing” the election to Obama....
That’s nonsense. Romney obviously “wants to win”. But I sense that he may not really “know how to” (nor does the GOP elite behind him).
Mr. Romney is running “a gentleman’s campaign” because that’s how he believes it’s supposed to be done. What he doesn’t understand that the “other side” — not only Obama and the ‘rats but the media as well — know that they can roll him for the fact that he’s keeping his dukes down.
Those days are over, or at least they are if the Republicans wish to win the presidential contests for much longer.
Romney is attacking Obama’s policies, when he should be attacking.... Obama.
I think he ought to take on Sheriff Joe as a close-at-hand advisor on how to play this game...
Wolds are difficult to rule once you’ve taken them over. That’s the way it is with wolds. Wolds are more difficult than “worlds”, because the “R” is missing from them. You are only left with the “D” in “wolds”, with no “R’s”, there is no hope for wolds. :o)
We are going to get our traditional election-night pizza (left over from when I was a local news reporter)and guzzle Mountain Dew and stay up too late to watch the returns.
I might call in sick the next morning. Not because of riots but due to indigestion.
If Zero wins, I’ll probably try to figure out how I can feed my family of five on $83 a week instead of $100 due to the coming tax increases.
Oh, and my advice to all Freepers: Keep your gas tank topped off around election day.
One more thing: the reason, I think, that there's a dearth of Romney signs/stickers is that no one wants to be a target if their boy should lose.
I agree with having a full fuel tank. There are plenty of Romney signs and bumper stickers where I live. NW Travis county Texas - yes you read that right, Travis county Texas. Just a couple of 0 bummer / bite me stickers.
I know quite a few people with that plan --- including me!
Search term = kenyan election riots "About 1,940,000 results (0.37 seconds)"
There is really only one area in my county where there are tons of Obama signs, everywhere else the Romney signs have about a 3 to 1 lead. In fact there is one town, which is usually awash in Dem signs and the O signs are few and far between. I have noticed a lot of house with the Dem signs for US Senate and Congress but no O sign. I find that very interesting.
I always take off election day + the day after. I listen to the big fella 9am-12. Then I watch Fox News. If we lose I go to work the day after. More of us should be taking the day off on Election day.
I won't have to put it up at sunrise and take it down at sunset either because there are no rules for pirate flags.
