Still curious of what would happen if McCain won though.
Do ya think cities would get burnt down and innocent firemen shot down off their ladders while tryin to put out the fires ? Or innocent truck drivers drug from their vehicles and beat to a bloody pulp,within an inch of their lives ? And having not done nothing to boot.
Yes i'm curious as this has been played out to be a done deal,in the bag gig.


I agree, let's just wait and see. Why speculate on what probably will never occur? Either something will happen or not. Even Bill O'Reilly said on Letterman last night that he thinks it's 5-1 odds against a McCain win. And a million Georgians have already voted, including me.

Whoa. I normally don't make comments like this, but it must really suck to live life so frightened.

Since theres a few days left to go and more and more is comin out on Hussein,AMERICA has not voted yet,and all we've heard about is these polls etc,if McCain wins.Will there be a nationwide riot ?
Take it however ya want to.But from what i've seen an heard the media has played this out like its a done deal with the "4 more years of the same " .
Just a thought as to what would happen if GRANDPA pulls it off.
I can see it now .We demand a recount
This cant be so
This is racist control
and blah ,blah ,blah.
It aint over till the fat lady sings thats for sure.
And NOBODY has voted yet.Well maybe a few and all that ACORN BS that went down .

Should be quite interesting to watch unfold next week.


Hey Luke it appears your neck of the woods is shifting to Obama. That might be interesting to watch unfold as well. Keep us updated will ya.

quote:
Is Florida's Gulf Coast going Democratic?
Nicholas Azzara
BRADENTON, Fla. — The times, they are a changin'.
So say local Democrats who point to a favorable surge in early voter turnout as proof that the political landscape here could be starting to shift. Through the first five days of early voting in Manatee, 6,979 voters cast a ballot: 46 percent were registered Democrats, 28 percent were Republican.

Election experts predict that a third of the electorate will already have voted by Nov. 4, up from 15 percent in 2000 and 20 percent in 2004, according to the Associated Press. In Florida, 40 percent of the electorate is expected to vote early.

Those are numbers that bode well for a Democratic Party that has worked hard to get out the early vote. Party leaders urged voters, particularly blacks, to cast ballots early in case there are any problems. Already, 1,100 black voters have cast a ballot in Manatee, another good sign for Democrats.

Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has made early voting a keystone of his campaign and urged voters to do just that during a campaign stop in Tampa on Monday.

Early turnout has also given local Democratic leaders hope that Obama could pull off a stunning upset and carry Manatee County, despite an overwhelming registration disadvantage.

"It's as good a chance as anyone has had in years," said Manatee Democratic Chair C.J. Czaia. "We've been trying to build the party to create a viable second party in our community, and for the first time we feel like we're achieving that."

Damn unruly colored folk!


Give them a chance to be unruly first. I mean, I could fear some angry white folks might go on a nationwide killing spree. Oh wait, that was already planned!

Wow.

By the way, it looked to me like you were womndering if the Rodney King riots were gonna hapen agaion -- since your references to truck drives "drug" from their truck and beaten is the infamous and sad inceident that happened to Randall Denny (?) in LA after the Rodney King verdict.

So, yeah, you're speculating that there'll be Rodney King-style riots of Obama loses. Um, how is it that you're NOT a racist again?
