Election Day & The Day After: What are you gonna do?
9/24/12 | hoagy62

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?

Me? I'm going to work, then going home to watch the results. If nothing happens, I'll be back to work on Wednesday. If there's reports of mass rioting after Obama loses, I'm staying home and I may even have the family stay home as well, just in case we need to exit our AO in a quick and efficient manner.

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.

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.

If Romney wins I'm going to buy a new American flag and put it back up to fly for the first time in almost 4 years and if he loses I'll probably resume stock piling more necessities like food and precious metals such as lead .

I'm older and don't work outside my house so I will be home to watch the results. There will likely be a live thread on FR election night. I won't be leaving my house the day after. There could be riots if Hussein wins just because they want to riot in their “celebration” and if Romney wins, there could be riots, too.

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.

On Nov. 6, I expect we will ALL be dis-appointed and "shocked" that the Election was a farce, pre-ordained with Fraudulent votes in the Swing States, and we are going to continue to Hell in a hand-basket.

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...

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.

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.

“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.

Okay, what exactly is “poll work”...and how does it help.
Live in a overwhelmingly conservative county so don’t even know what voter intimidation looks like. Except, of course, those black panther photos.

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!

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.

Nov 6 is my birthday. I'm asking for a definitive loss of the Won with no wiggle room for recounts.

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.

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.
