Washington and Colorado. Well how about that. Although, I live in Washington, and we've known for quite some time that I-502 to legalize would pass. It passed by a significant margin, right about where the polls have been suggesting it would so it's no surprise.

Colorado IS a surprise though. Their early polling was suggesting that it would not pass there.

Oregon had a similar initiative on their ballot but it didn't pass. But expect them to model their next initiative after Colorado and Washington and THEN it will pass there too. Followed by California, and others.

Now the big question is whether the feds are going to come after both states. I think they will... they'll do it financially. They'll cut Federal funds for highways and other infrastructure. Just watch, but they'll have to do it quick or too many other states will jump on board and then the Feds won't be able to do too much.

While I will never purchase and partake, I am glad that Washington was the first with Colorado. Its the right thing to do here. Other states can make their own decisions.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Israel will cry now
Yes they will...what's left of them.   Now, who will stop Iran from getting the bomb?  Obama? No.  And will Iran use the bomb against Israel?  Of course they will...why?  Because THAT is their number one goal....the destruction of Israel.

I don't think that you and alot of other Obama supporters can see past what you have for breakfast in the morning.  No Israel means WWIII.  It doesn't matter...check mate.  Game Over.  AMerica loses, Russia and China win.   And you are glad about that!?

It's a sad day for America...it's a sadder day for the rest of the World.  

And to my friends in Australia...a word of Advice...start right now learning a foreign language.  Learn both Russian and Chinese...because one of them is going to take you over!

He's probably in Isreal consoling his big buddy Netynyahu.He had convinced himself that Romney was going to win.

I wasn't a big fan of Obama but i have a lot of respect for him now.He shouldn't have won by rights but he won quite convincingly last night.

It's like a bad high school play in here with all this drama.

It would be interesting to find out where they think is a better place to go that more closely matches their values.

Wasn't there a bunch of Republicans who said they'd immigrate to Australia if Obama won?
Because Australia would be a GREAT country for a bunch of people who are pro-gun, pro-death penalty, anti-abortion, anti-socialised medicine and anti-anyone who isn't their brand of Christian....

LOL you're killin' me... funny stuff right there. Because Texas can't sustain itself well enough financially to "succeed"  if they decided to "secede"   *facepalm*

Well, your prediction from just a few days ago was that Romney would win in a landslide.  Certainly you'd give us the benefit of the doubt if we take your prognastication with a grain of salt or two.
