Stock market tanks for a while, although economic activity and hiring will start picking up. Interest rates will go up from their artificially low levels. If Romney is serious, there will be 2 or 3 years of pain, and then things might be on a path to soundness. If he is not serious, he will only slow down the collapse by a few years.

Barry has until January 20, 2013 to continue to destroy the country.

I’ll celebrate on January 21.

So I guess this means that you have convinced yourself that the skittle poopin unicorns are coming at a full gallop?

Sure there will be an uptick but only a moron thinks that means all our problems are solved. The fed has given trillions (with a T) to foreign banks and nations on the promise that we the people are good for it. We’re spending fake money like there’s no tomorrow.

The simple fact is that few men have what it takes to take the bold actions that need to be taken and Mitt Romney isn’t one of them.

Buy on he rumor, sell on the news!

Hope that Romney will win may be helping to hold the market too high. The Fed’s printing press is no doubt also juicing the market. The Piper will have his due, and when Romney wins or soon thereafter may be when he takes what’s due.

Jan 21 is the official kick-out-the-kenyan ceremony at the White Hut and outgoing presidents have been known to sign stupid laws beforehand. We all know Odumbo is a spiteful liar so I’ll bet he’ll get even with the electorate before he goes out officially..

Fine tell yourself whatever little fantasy you need to tell yourself but you’re still nothing but a mewling puddle of quivering fear.

Make it about Romney if you want but you’re the one who doesn’t have the manhood to face facts. The world’s economic problems are far bigger than Romney and go back well before Obama.

It’s not so much a sell off of the market as a repricing. The value of stocks is lower if money is worth more and interest rates are high. You are right, the dollar should improve.

Stow it, Artcore. Cripplecreek made a simple and very accurate point. This isn’t about Obama losing an election.....that asshole has done his damage, atop the damage done by decades of Presidents and Congresses hell-bent on one thing: re-election (translation: power).

If you think for two seconds that Romney....who I will gratefully say will win and send that f**king Kenyan Muslim Communist packing.......will cut the Federal government in half, slash entitlements, revert to the gold standard, etc., etc........then keep smoking your dope. Ain’t gonna happen. He’ll slap some band-aids on the sucking chest wound, tops. He’s not a bad guy.....he just hasn’t the stones nor the Constitutional grounding to do what is absolutely necessary.

He’s too f**king keen on being liked. If you don’t see that, you don’t know people. I make my living knowing people.

I think that really bad news will come out if Romney gets elected—things Nobama has done, the REAL unemployment rate, the REAL inflation rate. I think the recovery needs to be like feeding a starved man. If you overfeed him, he will die. If Romney moves too fast, the market may not be able to handle it. Read the article on Drudge by the Wash Times about how neither candidate should be elected.

Buy stock in companies that print Pardons, because Barry will be handing them out from Nov. 8th until Jan.20th (and he still may not get them all done).

Let’s see. Our manufacturing base is destroyed, and a huge chunk of government spending needs to be cut.

Well, if Romney’s Republicans shovel out much more free money to government teachers, regulators, and the like, then yes. Stock markets and Ponzi schemes will soar for days, but eventually, the collapse would be most grand and terrible.

But if Republicans were to cut spending as they should, the collapse would come sooner but with less effect. Either way, have fun. Enjoy the slide.

It could be very alarming as reality sets in. Once true economic data begins to be brought to light, it will have catastrophic results on the economy. Naturally, Dems will be there to point the finger and say “we told you so”. They have screwed us all - most just don’t know it yet.

The sad thing is that 6 months ago 95% of FReepers would have backed up what I said.

We’ve got a global financial calamity and it doesn’t have anything to do with Romney and not as much to do with Obama as some would like to believe.

Our financial mess goes back decades and I’m sick of hearing these excited little voices calling for a return to the glory of 2008. That’s a damn low bar and Americans should demand more. They should be demanding a return to the economic glory of the 1950s at least.

Sure Romney will be superior to Obama but I’m not falling into the trap of thinking its the best we can do.

IMO, BTW, the pool of commie constituents running both political parties are steeped in funding from government and won’t make the necessary spending cuts (like shutting down the Dept. of Education, shutting down regulatory offices including local, shutting down anti-family offices, etc.). Both political parties and their progressive/pathological social inclinations are taking us to the conclusion of the default process.

Friends: avoid buying anything that you don’t really need. Become more self-sufficient each month, and learn to manufacturing something useful. Starve the B.

One other thing, Bernake will remove the support the Fed has been giving to Nobama and HIS economy and things may crash quickly, again, before Romney can turn it around. Be prepared. I fear that Nobama has set things in motion that we are totally unaware of that that will periodically hit the economy. Don’t know what it could be because I’m not an economist. Just know the evil that is about Nobama and ALL the people he has had working for him the past 4 years. Getting them all out of government will be difficult. Romney’s first task is not Nobamacare; it’s getting rid of Bernake.

Not sure what cripplecreek does but most people I know are heavily or fully invested in stocks, bonds etc...So their financial view is much different then mine. I'm a small business guy. I believe there will be a massive surge in sales because I for one will close on three pieces of real estate on Jan 21st. Two purchases for business expansion and one I'm selling.

We will also be hiring a number of new people to expand both businesses. That is the boom that's coming.

Companies with 5 to 50 employees have been like ours. Most of us have been like turtles. Keeping our exposure to a minimum and saving every dime ready to sell out and let the takers F-OFF if Obama wins.

I remember the first Chick-fil-A Day, with the lines of customers quietly and courteously showing their feelings, in lines winding around the C-f-A stores.

And I’ve been telling people for over a month, that so many good American voters have the cruds of Obunga so bad, that November 6th is going to be Chick-fil-A Day to the 3rd power; with lines of R&R voters quietly and courteously winding around the polling places in numbers that will flummox the God-hating political elites!

If we aren’t willing to face the gravity of the situation, we aren’t likely to lean on Romney and the rest of our elected officials to do what really needs to be done.

The fiscal cliff will be there no matter who gets elected, at this point we’re only arguing about how steep it is and how far we fall.

The instant he is elected and proclaims the Keystone Pipeline a priority, and jerks the choke chain on the EPA, et al, opens up drilling, mining and Fracking, the sky is the limit!

If he then lowers taxes, sticks a knife in Obamacare, Dodd Frank and others — there will not be a Democrat President for at least 16 years...

Repricing, sell off either way I’m not suggesting a crash.

The world is awash in US dollars and I expect this trend to be much slower if not stopped.

This should have a negative impact on US exporters bottom line which can be offset by eliminating the taxation of repatriating overseas profits.

I would not want to be in US Banks for sometime. I would look at capital equipment/service providers, materials transports as a better allocation.
