    I'll go on as always, and if the guy does a crappy job I will point it out and maybe throw in a few "I told you" shots every once in a while.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Now I await comments from those who believe that demand is all important, and that this sort of thing may be exactly what's needed to get the economy rolling again.

    This. But I'm probably going to do that after the election anyway. I've been enjoying politics less and less for about a year now.

    Re: Your candidate LOSES - what do you do?

    I already know the candidate I am voting for will not win. His losing will not change my political views at all. I honestly don't think it matters whether Obama or Romney wins. Both of them will continue to grow our government and further regulate our lives. Regardless of who wins the things I can control in my life will not change nor will my political plans.

    This election is Romney's to win or lose. It'll take an unforeseen catastrophe to derail him.
