    This November is going to be a LANDSLIDE in Mitt Romney's favor.

    I guarantee it. The future of America is counting on it.

    And what do you think the Ryan administration would be like? You think that going back to the Reaganomics that got us here is a brilliant idea? You think having president that believes that "Corporations are people too, my friend!" is acceptable? A president that thinks 47% of the population are a bunch of lazy, welfare recipients? Come on - quit being stupid.

    Did we forget who was president before? That caused the mess Obama is still cleaning up and that many American's will suffer for decades. When he is re-elected, the next 4yrs will define his presidency... Trust me he is your much lesser evil! Watching the Republican convention you'd think the party just started 3 1/2 yrs ago.... seems like they forgot too.. lol

    Woodrow Wilson and Federal Reseve Act 1913, and putting the control of the US currency (supply and interest) to the power of the few. Then furthered by the abolishment of the gold standard in 1933, prior to this the US 1 dollar bill stated "worth value in gold" then said "legal tender" backed by nothing... this was only the begging... It's good to keep talking about this!

Spain they become the Knights of Christ, Scotland seemed to a safe haven, Bravia Germany has court documents about trials. One guy in particular was on trial and had over a dozen fellow knights stand in the court room fully armoured, found "not guilty" lol. And even suspect in North America in the late 1300's... Oak Island Nova Scotia or the Kensington Rune-stone that has Templar characters and other ruins along the east coast US with similar engraving (the hooked 'X') and modern architecture. By modern I mean present-day the astrological accuracy and precision that they built their structures is amazing and is even fairly advanced for todays technology.

    He knew something... He was gonna tell "us" the general public something... and was killed before he could.
    I think politicians like Dr. Ron Paul know about it too and are trying to tell us without directly telling us, so they don't get shot too.

    ..no, the republican supreme court would declare the republican candidate the winner in any circumstance as we found out in 2000, when the peoples' choice was completely ignored, we got stuck with bush, and the collapse of America was assured..(and that's exactly what happened with the collapse of the housing market and the economy generally at the end of 2008...I think Skull and Bones has a sworn duty to destroy America..)

    If this community organizer low-life wins the election, then all America will lose and the Republic "WILL" be no more!! Obama's real agenda is to destroy the Nation and to make America kneel to the U.N. and the George Soros's of the world. I can see that America maybe heading to another civil war or revolution to regain what we will be losing!

    Polls smolls - we are still nearly 50 days away from the election - that is an eternity. No debates have taken place - either candidate could get a tremendous advantage. Polsters are biased - at this juncture, they mean very little and the voter reads into them what they want to see.

    President B.O. is basically, a Muslim Marxist Socialist wearing a Christian Capitalist American Mask.

    In reference to what Churches call the anti-Christ, a good American example today would be President B.O., who seems to be the anti-Christ of America (the opposite of Capitalism, American values and the American way), and is backed by 80% of all media which is Liberal (Socialists).

    Let's face it... Most Politicians and Con Men like to tell people what they want to hear no matter what the cost to voters and their Country, or to their victims, respectively.
    Business people are more to the point, cut the cr*p and get things done, like Romney for example.

    IF YOU WANT 4 MORE YEARS OF CR*P AND A DEFICIT OF $30 TRILLION OR MORE BY THE END OF 2016 RUINING THE CHANCE FOR YOUNGER GENERATIONS OF AMERICANS TO MAKE A DECENT LIVING AND BUST THE LIFE SAVINGS OF THE ELDERLY AT A RAPID RATE WITH 0% SAVINGS RATE IN THE BANK? THEN VOTE FOR THE MARXIST PIED PIPER (PRESIDENT B.O.) AND MOST OF THE REMAINING WEALTH THAT KEEPS THE USA RUNNING WILL DEPLETE OR MOVE OUT OF THE USA LEAVING IT TO BECOME A SOCIALIST WELFARE STATE.

    First, of course it's possible to lose the popular vote and win the election.

    Second, I really wish people would learn to read polls. Romney's alleged 2% lead is well within the poll's margin of error (3%), which means the true results could be anywhere from Romney 5% to Obama 1%.

    The Sodaheadline is WRONG! As of October 5, Rasmussen shows Obama AHEAD 49% to Romney's 47%:

    [QUOTE]
    Friday, October 05, 2012

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Obama attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 47%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.

    Indeed! NOTE: Although the OP's link shows Obama with the 49%-47% lead on October 5, third party sources ( http://www.examiner.com/artic... ) indicate that Romney DID, in fact, hold a 2% lead on September 17, the date of the original post. Although that lead had since evaporated. the original post WAS accurate on that date. As a result, I apologized and my criticism is retracted.

    The "thing about" the Popularity Vote is what do the Independents say? . . . Yes, it's possible to swing from one side to the other in large numbers, without toppling the Left or the Right. This is what happened in the Nixon/Kennedy Election. The Kennedy-backers complained that Nixon won the Popularity Vote; and for that they Demanded a Re-Count. Well, the Re-count proved that Nixon DID WIN the Popularity Contest, so to speak. Oh boy! They shut up! They really, really shut-up!!

    I hope he loses the election.. Not just part of if. In my 55 yrs of life he has been the worst thing we've had, worse than Carter, or Johnson and Nixon.

    My guess when history has a chance to see things in hindsight in about 50 or 100 yrs, he will take the title of being the worst in history..

    He is an amateur at best, with delusional academic notions of how to make things better. He never should have left academia.
