Regardless of how the election turns out

While I hate political speeches, and I find the debates boring, I find the political system itself fascinating. Also, watching the various pundits try to find mandates or trends in the results is interesting, well for the first few days anyway.
If Obama wins, he gets four more years to see if he can be a good president. If Romney wins, we will see yet another in a long series of peaceful turnovers of power. Either way, the country will be survive and eventually prosper.

Either way, we're most likely screwed. The two party system is a fuging joke.
The US survived a Civil War, Valley Forge, the burning of the White House, Pearl Harbor and WWII, and many other calamaties. We will survive Romney or Obama.
Besides, its not like the countries that have more than two parties are examples of excellent government.
Personally, I would prefer no political parties and everyone just run as independents, but it isn't going to happen.

The staunch supporters of whichever candidate that loses are going to have a bitch fit Wednesday.
I can only imagine what my Facebook news feed will be like...
It's certainly going to be entertaining.
I'm not entirely sure we'll have a winner by Wednesday...

I expect the "too close to call" stuff that we are hearing now is just news people wanting you to tune in. I think they will be very cautious in declaring winners, so it might take some extra time, but a winner will be known by 1 a.m. is my prediction.
Once places like Wisconson, Ohio and Iowa are known, it is a done deal.
Whichever way it goes, tomorrow, we will still be in America and have no fear for our lives because our party lost. (well, for the most part) haha

With all of the problems in the NE anyone who thinks this is going to be over quickly is simply kidding themselves.
Fax and email in your ballot? You must be joking NJ. No chance for fraud there...
