The whole 2008 madhouse is what drove me to FR in the first place. I got my news from NewsMax at the time, and they must have mentioned FR in one story because once I stopped by here, that was it. Free Republic is hands down the most comprehensive source of election news. Period.

NBC has called Kentucky for McCain and Vermont for Obama. I live in Vermont - the polls just closed at 7, how they can they call it already? (though I know for sure Planet Moonbat here would go for Obama).

Election night 2000 was an absolute nightmare........but it ended with good triumphing over evil, and our wonderful President Bush won!

Be of good cheer. Pray, vote and pray.

Polls in Indiana close at 6:00 p.m. Florida and Virginia polls close at 7:00 and then 7:30 in Ohio. I’m not sure whether SC closes at 7:00 as well. At 8:00 p.m. NH and PA close.

According to Fox it sounds like the Obama camp isn’t thrilled with their NC numbers. They said the R turnout in Charlotte is HUGE!

This is GREAT news for McCain, Dole and McCrory...

I wish the Republicans would DO something about voter fraud and the constant media bias.

I don't know why they didn't do something about this when we had control of both houses AND the WH. If the Dems can push the Fairness Doctrine to eliminate AM talk radio, certainly we could've done something w/r media bias. And especially voter fraud.

The R's that got control were such wimps. Next time around (if we lose this time, pray we don't though) - we need some men with you-know-what or Palin-type women to take charge)

I’m here. I’m a little nervous, but I’m listening to Hugh Hewitt right now. He saved me from pulling my hair out in 2004, by being a reassuring voice.

I have been praying, praying, praying. In any case, God is in control, and I take comfort from that.

I kind of have Indiana penciled in as ‘a given’ for McCain. So to with the southern states. Indiana has been a pretty rock-ribbed Republican state. McCain doesn’t win there, he is in trouble...

McCain has about a 5% lead in Indiana, but still a long ways to go.
