Romney's momentum in the Sunshine State makes me skeptical of the slew of national polls showing the race as too-close-to-call. Florida represents a pretty good cross section of the rest of the country. Especially since 1980, Florida has been the quintessential bellwether. The only exception was the weirdo 1992 election year, when Perot ate into H.W. Bush's base and got a fifth of the vote. Exceptions prove the rule.
I don't think the 2012 contest will be another exception. The only exception is the exceptionally good race Romney has run, not just here but across the country. In every sense, he's run a winner's campaign. Unlike Obama, he's done it without the use of Greek columns. The epic size of Romney's crowds and the uplifting tone he's set is driving the Obama camp into hysterics. Who knows, Obama might even accuse Romney of spreading cancer ... oh, wait. Already done.
But if you really want to drive the Obama camp bananas, this Tuesday vote Romney-Ryan!
Anyway, that's ....
My Two Cents ...
The lefties should be careful what they ask for, i believe a civil war would be very unhealthy for the dems.
This highlights the part of the story no one on the left understands.
We love this country, and to save it we must enter an era of fiscal responsibility. And that includes taking responsibility for the decisions already made in the past even though WE didn’t make most of them.
Skin color is not a factor in this. We have Americans of all skin colors, some 47% according to a recent media circus, that either pay no income tax and by extension take more than they pay into the tax system. It is simply impossible to continue doing this for very long.
If blacks in particular feel threatened by what has to happen for us to continue to exist as a nation, then that is too bad. We are all going to suffer horribly as we as a nation clear these debt loads that we have accrued.
It simply no longer matters whether a group of people who take from the system more than they put in threaten to burn cities or not.
The cities will burn if we do nothing with 100% certainty. The day of financial reckoning will come for us either at a time and place of our choosing, or at one we do not choose.
If we tackle it head on intentionally, then we have a much better chance of surviving it with freedom and liberty intact.
If we wait for the collapse and do nothing, the power vacuum will be filled by any entity strong enough to grab the reins at the moment it happens.
So how much fear do I feel over such a threat?
Not one single bit more than I have already been feeling for several years from knowing what is coming our way.
If this is part of the price that must be paid for debts we can not honor as a nation, so be it. It would be preferable however if we could all be united in getting through it. The great melting pot and all. When was the last time we heard that phrase used?
We need leadership that will guide the country back toward everyone wanting to simply be Americans again and nothing else!
With all the threats coming from the ‘toons’ I do seriously believe this hunting season could take a real walk on the wild side.
Threatened by a 97-year-old woman ???
After Romney wins, I'll tune in to MSNBC for a dose of gloat while their collective (no pun intended) heads explode.
Thanks for the uplifting news. Your 2 cents is good!

All lefty media are doing their lying-best to tell the lethargic left that he is either ahead - or about to take the lead. Unfortunately this bald-faced lying has been somewhat successful in bumping up enthusiasm a bit - however empty and groundless it is!
This is going to be a turn-out battle - that in the end the leftists are going to lose - simply because of the huge number of those who will be venting their buyers-remorse for having helped vote this lousy president into office.
My bet, near 20 percent of democrats are going to help vote the bastard out!!
Hey, you! It’s so good to see you, especially at election time. ;o)
“Florida has been the quintessential bellwether. The only exception was the weirdo 1992 election year”
That was the year that we had a President who decided not to campaign, and a President who went back on his word after he said, “Read my lips...no new taxes.”
I was living in FL in 1980. The polls had Carter and Reagan tied. I got out of a sick bed to vote, because the numbers were so tight. You know the rest.
I have a fever and it’s 1980.......all over again! Just watch the silent majority this time. It’s going to be an “undertow election”...just like 1980.
Chin up, my FRiend...and SMILE! ;o)
