Post what you are seeing or hearing here. Freepers and PUMAs unite for Mac/Cuda victory over the false messiah!
Forget the predictions, forget the polls. The score is tied at 0-0.
Get out and VOTE.
I voted about an hour ago, in rural Greene County of Missouri...a very important area in this election. Obama was here in Springfield Saturday.
Even though it was later in the morning, there were long lines in this very Republican area. While signing the book, I saw that my folks, who don’t always vote, had already been there and voted for McCain.
McCain must get nearly 60% of Greene County to win Missouri.
I saw my first honest-to-god PUMA waiting in line at my polling place!
She had a Hillary Clinton button on. I just wanted to hug her! She was middle aged, white and cheery! Just like all many PUMAs.
They ARE real, and if I saw one in my line of maybe 30 people, they are definitely going to give BO a heart attack today.
LET’S GO! SAVE THE REPUBLIC!
FRAUD going on in LA County. My ballot number has been recorded by the poll workers and it will be removed from the ballot box this evening. They claim I have already voted absentee but I have not. Even though I am a resident and registered voter who voted in the primaries I was given a provisional ballot. Nevertheless I am certain that once my ballot is retrieved and identified as a McCain vote it will be discarded
After we voted, we walked out to introduce ourselves and say a warm Florida "Hey" to our compatriots. Nice people, excited and energized. They said the reaction they were getting was really positive.
Now, granted, we live in Seminole County in FL, right along the I 4 corridor. So, we're weighted more to the right.
All we can do now is wait and pray, I guess.
Please go back. I am concerned after reading many posts from FReepers about long lines and leaving to go back later. Line may be just as long later. Stand in line and VOTE! Obama supporters will stand in line for weeks at a time for free handouts, we must Stand up and VOTE!
Several other open threads on the same subject.
Hey, some good news from National Review on that blowout for Obama in that one tiny NH town..........apparently every 16 years the voters in Dixville Notch pick the wrong candidate.
Maybe some good fortune for McCain. :)
Of course, all this stuff is superstition.......get out and vote!
The curse of the Notch [Mark Steyn]
Many readers, clutching at notches and notching at straws, draw my attention to the hitherto little-known 16-year Dixville Notch curse:
1960 Nixon 9 Kennedy 0
1976 Ford 13 Carter 11
1992 Bush 15 Perot 8 Marrou 5 Clinton 3
2008 Obama 15 McCain 6
Every 16 years a candidate sweeps the Notch and goes on to lose the nation.
Clearly, Barack Obama is Nixon, Ford and Bush. And McCain is Andre Marrou. No, wait...
If you dont want an Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Frank-Acorn supermajority, theres only one way to stop it: Vote.
Just returned from voting at the one of our local elementary schools. I only had to wait in line for about 20 minutes.
John Kennedy for Senator
Bill Cassidy for Congressman
“No” to 5 or 6 constitutional amendments
“No” to a massive bond issue put on the ballot by our wonderful Baton Rouge mayor-president
Now, we wait and pray!!
Let FReedom and Liberty ring across the nation.
I just woke up and all I see are stories of corruption and crazy people on drudge. We need to encourage sanity for America after this is over! With that said! Go out and Vote McCain/Palin, and for all the best congressional seats and governor slots! FIGHT! STAND UP! COUNTRY FIRST!
(However I do know that if Obama loses, tomorrow your puma claws will start ripping the eyes out of McCain and Sarah to prepare for Hillary's 2012 coronation...)
Now I will watch as the battle for the heart and soul of the democratic party unfolds today.
Not to worry. My wife and I have always voted together and today will be no different. When she gets off work at 2:30, we'll be headed to the polls and casting our vote for McCain/Palin and "YES" on 2!
Voted at 10:45 in the Highlands area of Louisville (loaded with liberal Democrats). Our three precincts vote in a church, and historically lead the entire state of Kentucky in voter participation. My vote was #1365 at that time. It was heartening to see an older couple drive their van up to the door since the woman was handicapped. That had a Nobama sign and a McPalin sign on their van. Quite a rarity in these parts. I can’t stand our metro council member who was running unoppposed, so I wrote in my husband’s name!
I’m in Idaho...and I can tell ya, the line was LONG....not very many young folk, a lot of 30s +....and this was on a gray and wet and cool morning. Something’s got people energized.
Someone I read called about “broken glass” conservatives...the type of election where you’d walk over broken glass to get your vote out. I saw some of that. Hoping people all over the country see it too!
Just heard from my friend in Philadelphia. Obama supporters are out early this morning offering “rides” to the voting booth. I told him that’s not the only ride he’ll be taken on if Obama gets in.
Actually, was pretty surprised at the lack of enthusiasm for Obama. PA just might go for McCain this year.
Just got back from voting. Straight Republican ticket and voted no on the question about OK'ing a large sum of money for water stuff. Mainly cause alot of the money would go for grants and thus may not go to improve water infrastructure.
My wait was about 45 minutes. I took a book to read as I waited in line. The voting was touch screen. I had no problems with it.
Said a prayer on the way over that McCain/Palin would win the election today.
I've been hearing more and more life-long Democrats at work stating they are voting for McCain/Palin. Even my life-long Democrat sister told me the other day she was voting for a Republican Presidential candidate for the first time in her life.
Major snowstorm in my area of Utah.
Attention Colorado West Slope - you may want to vote early if this storm moves your way.
1 for the white haired guy and Sarah Palin.
Love the PUMA pic, what a gorgeous animal! *worth noting, I am a Republican now, years ago i was a democrat. If I still were a dem...I would have been PUMA for sure! GO PUMA!
I will be heading out to vote soon too, here in OHIO!!! O...H...I....O!!!!! LOL I am so glad that perhaps my state can be the one to hand Mccain the title of POTUS! We did it for Bush!
I just voted for McCain here in Michigan. While at the polls I overheard a person saying “I don’t care if I am a Democrat, I’m not voting for a g*dd*mned commie!”. Probably a Reagan-Democrat or a PUMA.
It’s gonna be a very long night for Barry. LOL
A good site to compare ‘04 election results to this year. It’s (puke) CNN....but I find it easy to use.
I voted two weeks in Oregon’s vote by mail! (Wish I could go to a polling place instead, but I guess voting at home allows me to avoid stinky hippies.) My husband had me fill out his ballot along with mine since we are voting the same way. I got to vote for Sarah twice! Made me very happy.
Vote and pray for victory! May God bless our nation!
Pumaphant - PUMACANS
After FR what other good internet sites are there for keeping up to date on election results? I don’t watch tv.
I adore her. And Todd is just as awesome.
“McCain must get nearly 60% of Greene County to win Missouri.”
Oh, he’ll DEFINITELY get that!!! When I went to the Sarah Palin rally in Springfield, she drew thousands and thousands and thousands of people!!!! I was lucky enough to get in, but there were thousands of people behind me.
Greene County will go for McCain-Palin by a HUGE margin, and then we’ll carry Missouri!!!
“broken glass conservatives...the type of election where youd walk over broken glass to get your vote out”
I really have NO IDEA how this is all going to end, but I am encouraged by what I have seen, and what I am hearing.
the ANTI-OBAMA vote could be as large as the Pro-Obama vote!
This was the 5th presidential election in which I have participated at this polling place. I always go to vote at 10:00 AM because, in the past, there has never been a line at that time.
This morning I arrived at 10:00 and had to wait in line for the first time ever. I was the 257th person to vote. That is 10% of our entire town's population and probably 50% of the people assigned to this polling place.
I feel this is a good indicator of what is happening nationally, as Alabama is a red state and turn out does not have the effect on our electoral votes that it has in other states. If my little town is turning out in droves to vote this election, I guarantee it means the rednecks nationally will be doing the same thing...IF, that is, we can let go of our guns and God long enough!!!
We’re posting this for our employees.
Notice to All Employees
As of November 5, 2008, when President Obama is officially elected into office, our company will instill a few new policies which are in keeping with his new, inspiring issues of change and fairness:
1. All salespeople will be pooling their sales commissions into a common pool that will be divided equally between all of you. This will serve to give those of you who are underachieving a “fair shake.”
2. All hourly employees will be pooling their wages, including overtime, into a common pool, dividing it equally amongst yourselves. This will help those who are “too busy for overtime” to reap the rewards from those who have more spare time and can work extra hours.
3. All top management will now be referred to as “the government.” We will not participate in this “pooling” experience because the law doesn’t apply to us.
4. The “government” will give eloquent speeches to all employees every week, encouraging its workers to continue to work hard “for the good of all.”
5. The employees will be thrilled with these new policies because it’s “good to spread the wealth.” Those of you who have underachieved will finally get an opportunity; those of you who have worked hard and had success will feel more “patriotic.”
6. The last few people who were hired should clean out their desks. Don’t feel bad though, because President Obama will give you free healthcare, free handouts, free oil for heating your home, free food stamps, and he’ll let you stay in your home for as long as you want even if you can’t pay your mortgage. If you appeal directly to our democratic congress, you might even get a free flat screen TV and a coupon for free haircuts (shouldn’t all Americans be entitled to nice looking hair?) !!!
If for any reason you are not happy with the new policies, you may want to rethink your vote on November 4th.
Went to the poll today in South Alabama. It was nice seeing all the conservatives and military familes out voting. This is one of the reasons we love living here. For those of you in “Indian Country”, keep fighting.
National Review Magazine’s ‘The Corner’ and their ‘Campaign Spot’ are very good with the buzz.
Just voted in Central MA — lines are L-O-N-G. The guy in front of me in the check out line voted for McCain (hell yeah I peeked). So did the guy behind me — my husband. :)
I was there as well. They estimated 20,000.
Bush got nearly 60% in 2000 in Greene County, just over 55% in 2004. However, we need bigger numbers in Greene, Christian, Newton and Jasper counties to offset urban KC and St. Louis.
That should be I voted two weeks ago.
Its going to be a long day. We’ve been praying. I’m lucky to have gotten in at an early stage in this thread. America as we know it is on the precipice.
