My thoughts exactly, Farmer77. Whatever the outcome of the election, we'll awaken on November 9th to a new era in American history. 

Perhaps the final chapter??

Aftermath

This is the first Presidential election where my three boys are old enough to understand what is going on.  Since we have discussed and debated Trump v. Lie-lary, it seems like forever now, frequently with them this will be a great opportunity for them to see how it all unfolds and a logical conclusion.  So, yes - me and my family will be watching FoxNews' coverage of the election.

Whether the candidate we favor wins or loses, watching the results and listening to the coverage, I think, for children who can understand the process is a wonderful educational experience.  Who knows, perhaps one of my boys will use this tragedy as the impetus for some social cause.

I wouldn't miss this election drama for the world. It's too highly entertaining for me not to watch this nail biter to the very end.

I will be watching every minute and switching back and forth between channels like I have from the beginning of this saga 1 1/2 years ago. I have already voted so I won't have to worry about dealing with that on Tuesday.

I will continue to watch until a winner is announced, and it wouldn't surprise me if it went on all night and through the morning.

Edit to add: After Clinton gives her concession speech surrounded by her crime family I will be able to sleep.

I think I will watch Rick and Morty.  Here they are expressing my feelings about this election.

It's depressing. No one is excited to watch this election. This is what a "political rock-bottom" looks like. None of the candidates represent the people, the votes barely matter, everything the people want is disregarded...

If the water wasn't running or the lights turned off for a week, there would be an uprising. Those in office should pray that we all continue to lead cushy lives cause the day that stops is the day the wrath of the people is turned on Washington.

Am I being dramatic, or hopeful?

Anyway, my face on election night:


We didn't ask for this, but we allowed it to happen. We took for granted the greatest Democracy the world has ever known, a place where men could be free to live and do as they choose. Free as we all should be.

I do not know what will happen in the next few years, as those in power tear down the final barriers provided by the Constitution. Maybe there will be bloodshed, maybe not. Maybe we will set aside our differences and finally come together to fight the real enemy who seeks to keep us divided and enslaved. That is the greatest fear of the elite.

Godspeed, America.

May the freedom you inspired continue to burn in the hearts of free people all over the world until it burns in every heart and ALL are free.

 

"To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish."

"The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country. " - annual address 1 Dec 1862

 

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." - 19 Nov 1863

Mrs Clinton has been in politics forever. It's quite clear to me that she favors a Socialist Oligarchy ruled by her and her cronies.

Mr Trump has been a sketchy billionaire forever. It's not clear to me what he will actually do if elected (could be better or worse than Clinton).

Guess we'll find out soon enough.

I honestly don't think I can stomach watching the media cover this election. I'm thinking of just watching a couple of DVDs and going to sleep early.

So, who will watch and who will not watch?

I will watch this. Starting from early morning. Daughter has been notified that TV/Xbox is off limits for the day, evening and wife that I am off any conversation track and dinner is pizza and beer (well, coke for daughter).

Cheers,

Badeskov

That was what I was looking for. Thanks. :tu:

Factor in the timezones and I suppose we will get the result by wednesday morning here.

Like I said in another thread I am really glad we don't have to go through a presidential election, but I must confess it is a lot more fascinating than what we got here. (We have had the same head of state since 1972 :rolleyes:)

I'm not going to be sitting on my couch with a bowl of popcorn listening to the commenters if that's what you're asking, I'll probably check on it sporadically throughout the evening.

I`m going to vote for Trump, and stay up to see all those Trump supporters coming out of the wood work, just like they did at all his rallies, so many more then at  Hillary`s ;)

It's like a bloodless revolution every four years...  If the only candidates were all from the same club with different mascots for the different cliques.  Both sides line up, throw insults at each other and after the most popular kid on the block wins by a classroom vote the winning side gloats while the losing side sulks.

Can you imagine how smug Trump would be in one of the private meetings with Obama if he wins?  Or how many insults/taunts he'd throw out knowing Obama's going out the door and there's nothing he can do about handing over the keys?
