Romney never fought until nearly the very end. I think the only candidate who started out fighting was Gingrich, and “conservatives” didn’t like him because he didn’t fit their mold.

I actually ended up liking Romney, but I could never understand why he really didn’t take the fight to Bambi, who was completely hopeless and a loser on his own and has now only been carried across the threshold by his leftist machine.

But, unless there’s a dramatic change and things go for Romney, when I wake up tomorrow I expect this country to be set on such a seriously bad path that I doubt we will meet again here in a year’s turning.

Will Voter ID ever hit the Supreme Court?

It already has. SCOTUS has approved voter ID in Indiana.

The other cases mostly trace to Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, wherein the Department of Justice retains right of review over any changes in the laws affecting voting in 15 southern states.

Holder has challenged voter ID laws in several of those states. The court has already reviewed the South Carolina case and shot down the DOJ -- but the delay meant that it couldn't be implemented in this electoral cycle. Which is all Holder wanted, anyway.

In any event, voter ID has already passed court muster.

"I fear it is time to find a more imperfect country, AU, Canada perhaps, Poland, Czech Republic or go Galt in Alaska?"

It would be foolish to not think about the possibilities. A second term Obama will be a tyrannical wreck. The looters would have won the right to take as much as they want and Obama will push the US into some combination of Greece and Venezuela with a dash of Islamic of Shariah law.

It is now 244 for Obama, 193 for Romney. I just don’t see how Romney can win this.

It’s probably over. America’s stupid half has spoken. Death by Idiocracy it is then.

But hey....it was fun while it lasted. Freedom and democracy, as an experiment, was a good idea at the time. We had to try....and we had a good run.

“Fox has it as 174-173. Romney needs 96 more EVs. He can ONLY win with NC (15), VA (13), CO (9), AK (3), ID (4), OH (20), FL (27)... that’s only 91...
he also must get WI (10) switching from declared Obama to Romney.

Anything else and it’s over, folks.”

“Tom Kaine wins VA? This country is on drugs.”

One pretty good rule in the game of politics is no second chances for losers. Allen proved once already that he couldn’t win a Senate set in VA, even as an incumbent.

He should have never gotten another chance.

You can’t realistically expect a better mix of circumstances to create a GOP landslide, and look what happened instead. It isn’t about liberal or conservative, it isn’t about policy or record or any thinking reason. There are too many ignorant, media brainwashed drones out there. There is too great a double standard that allows Dems to break the law as they will and hems in the GOP for any little thing.

If Romney pulls it off, and does a good job, that might work change things for the good, but if he loses I think the only thing that will cause a widespread wake up will be for America to feel in full the consequences of this foolishness. It could be economic collapse, it could be war on American soil, it could be a nuclear terrorist strike, but it will hurt bad enough to break people out of their trance.

Don’t discount the Yankee migration thing. They move down here and start voting for the same garbage that made them move. Combine that with the residue of our past sins and mistakes, and you get Romney squeaking out North Carolina.

You probably have the saddest sequence of postings I’ve ever seen on a thread on FR.

You do understand that from the beginning it’s impossible to make up that gap with that many votes left, right?
